Hi as per title,

keep seeing some peeps talking authoritatively with regards to CPU volts and CPU deterioration without having any real facts and stating their opinions as absolute.

So would like to find out how much voltage people are putting through their CPUs

Me personally am following the mantra as long as your CPU is cooled adequately i.e. not running over 75C + for extended periods of time then high voltage is a non issue, of course time will tell if this is correct, everything else is just conjecture and opinion

I'm running at 1.368-1.38v peak under load. At idle, it sits around 1.308-1.32v.
This is at 4.0ghz

My research software which I run for 8 hours overnight usually pushes my temps to around 65-67c.

I could up voltage to 1.38v-1.392v at peak, but for a measly gain to 4.025ghz, I think I'll pass.
AMD stated to keep voltage under 1.375v for threadripper, so I'm right there already.

I'm running my 1600 at 1.3v, 3.8ghz. 24/7 Mining and whatever stable.. 3.9 and above took more than 1.4v so I left it there.

Definitely didn't win the lotto.

1.356v @ 3.9 ghz. Ryzen 1700. It's not worth it to go higher.

1.3v 1950x for 4.025 llc 3 so maybe 1.312 at full tilt.
1.35 same llc for 4.1 but honestly does not make that much of a difference so I just stuck to 4.025 for now

Ryzen 7 1700 @ + 1.500V and CnQ functioning. So not the max voltage and clock all the time. But it kicks along.

Uh, what!? Are you trying to kill your chip? 1.5V is far past the safe zone for these chips unless you're doing extreme/LN2 OC.. Not even sure how you're keeping cool on load.
