Hi,

First of all, sorry I'm a noob in OC'ing a cpu especially sandy bridge. Can someone help to advise whether is it safe for me to run my cpu 24/7 at below setting and voltage? I tried to push further to 4.8GHz but even 4.6GHz already cause my pc to freeze while loading windows.
CPU speed: 4.5GHz
Multiplier: x 45
Bus Speed: 100MHz

Voltage: varies from 1.42v-1.46v
Maximum Temperature: 75DegC after 8hours of Prime95, gaming BF3, Crysis2 DX11 @ max details (1080p)stable even after 3-4hours. Linx passed, no error in occt after 4 hours.

BIOS settings as above, I just changed multiplier,disabled turbo, voltage set to 1.38v and LLC enabled at level 7...is it safe for my cpu at above voltage? kindly let me know if more info needed, thanks for those who try to help, appreciate it

im gunna go out on a limb here and say you should be fine. there are people who on OCN who have run there intel rigs 24/7 or extended periods of time with vcore voltage just over 1.5V.. your temps are fine after 7 hours of prime95 at 75degC so i believe you will be just fine running it 24/7

if you have any concerns, just keep an eye on it when your awake both physically and by the use of software monitoring

Try turning down your Voltage to 1.35 see if that helps.

Thanks for the good news, my chip is quite bad in overclocking as it needs very high voltage to stable at 4.5GHz...4.6GHz even worst i think may need more than 1.5v to stable

I will try it first but I dont think it'll be stable, so no need to alter any settings other than Vcore? Is it really safe to play around with LLC? thanks mate..
