Hi,

as it has been xmas, Januar awaits new costs and all games are running fine, just BF4 online takes the last breathe out of the 955 I wasted a thought on OC.

three years ago and no knowledge of computers i bought him with meanwhile a standard motherboard:

in a case that has been cheap on sale with a mouse too:

stepping is c3, that could be important as google told me?

running with an powercolr hd7870 oc, lower at 1,1V instead of 1,175V, the 955 on 3600Mhz and 1,28x Volt stable in hours of BF4, with 3400Mhz at 1,275V stable as well.

so is it safe for gaming all day? at least untill april/may 2015 components should be safe, new/left money then for a bigger cpu/board.

as I read in the www, as long as I only raise the multi but not the nb voltage or nb's timings, the board and it's components/periphere items are safe?

the 955 is max 48 degrees celcius with a macho on it, read with core temp and hwinfo, same results.

so I cannot damage anything as long as the temperature is fine?

or may just the higher mhz on the CPU create damage week by week silent for itself or anything else connected (board/gpu/hdds....)

if it might be important, power supply is a coolermaster g550m

so, thanks at this point for an answer here in this special communtiy and a nice day

Thx, temps are even 2 degrees better as the cores are not at 100 percent in Battlefield 4, so the cpu stays cooler.

I am fine since three days with 3600Mhz at 1,275 Volt undervolted lock, cool and quiet still works, Mhz and voltage go down in idle as usual.

So it should not be life shortening for the cpu?

Well lower voltage is better! Just keep it stable, too low of a voltage can crash/unstable. The cooler a chip is held the longer the lifespan and cooler chips are also more stable, if you got money left for an aftermarket cooler you can't go wrong. (You already have one i see) Great setup, nice clocks
