Looks good. Your temps are good, voltage is fairly low and as long as it's stable in normal usage, you should be good to go. Also, yes, you will most likely need more voltage to stabilize 4.5 ghz.
that's what i figured. right now i'm at +.005v offset which. When i decide i want some more speed i'll toy around more. Oh, forgot to say this cooled by a Hyper 212+ w/ Nocta NF-F12 in pull configuration.
Ok, so for a TRUE stability test, run in blend mode for 24hrs?Originally Posted by TwoCables
Remember though, 12 hours means that you are only getting through the first 12 hours worth of FFTs. In the Blend test, there are 82 of them to get through and it takes about 24 hours to do so. Each one is different and so being stable enough to run Prime95 for 12 hours only means that you can get through about half of them.
That would be better, but the best would be to run the Custom Blend test and tell Prime95 to use about 80-85% of your memory as opposed to the default 1600 MB. What version of Prime95 do you have though?
yes, before the delid i was hitting roughly 85*c with PRIME95. that's when i decided to go to the garage and take a whack in the vice. loving the delidded performance.Originally Posted by wstanci3
i7 3770k @ 4.4ghz with 1.235v I presume?
That is not terrible, so that is a start
Temperatures are good. Plenty of room to throw some more volts at it.
Ivy Bridge starts to really get hot around 1.3v for your info. I'd feel unsafe during benchmarking when the temps start to reach 90 degrees.
I'll have to research more about this, thanks for the feedback.Originally Posted by friend'scatdied
Since it's Ivy Bridge make sure you investigate WHEA in Event Viewer for Error 19 (Internal parity error 19) as well.
If you have any of those it means you're not truly stable even if you pass days of Prime.
I've flirted with Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell LGA 155X i7s and only Ivy Bridge has this nuance.
