Hey again!


I am now testing my E8400 @ 4123mhz @ 1.423v on CPU-Z.

Just finished a 4 hour run of PRime95 and 2 of OCCT, everything went fine.

Temps are: 39ºC Idle (hey, it's summer) 65ºC full load.

Am I killing it if I keep it like this for daily use? Not 24/7, but my PC is on for like 12-16 hours a day.

Temps seem fine... my Zalman CNPS7500 seems to be doing a good job. Do i keep it like this or do I back down?

I can keep it stable at 4ghz with a Vcore of 1.382v... not sure if 100mhz is worth the increase in Vcore. What do you think?

That voltage is WAY to high for that clock. i run my e8500 at 4.2ghz on 1.30v 24/7. Not saying you should get the exact same results but that vcore shouldn't be above 1.4 unless your at like 4.4ghz+
I say KEEP it at 4ghz with the lower voltage your comp will thank you for it

You're @ 1.23v. I'm @ 1.42. Big difference man


Just asking if these volts are safe or if I should back down to the safer 4ghz volts I can get (1.382v).

Oh have you tested lower volts? You should keep dropping them and testing until you become unstable.
