Been working on a project build for a co-worker. Decided to go with the i5 3570k on this one. So far I'm sitting comfortable at 4.5ghz @ 1.23v and max load temps are barely touching 63c via 3Dmark11, P95 and AIDA64. 63c max after 5 hours on only 1.23v seems like I got some headroom left? is this good/bad so far for this chip?


How long of a lifespan will she see if I leave it at 1.23v on a 24/7 OC via Fixed voltage. She wont be turning PC off, just random reboots here and there. Cooler is a Xigamatek Dark Knight II Night Hawk Edition  (Cooler is amazing, only 2 degrees off from my H100)


Here are the specs: (some ppl might want to know)


Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced

Asus Maximus V Formula

Intel Core i5 3570k

Xigmatek Dark Knight II

You should be good. So long as the voltage is well below manufacture specification and the heat is kept very low you shouldnt have an issue getting a good time span out of the chip. You can never tell or put a number on longivity but i would run speed step and c states so you can get the throttle down features and allow tue chip to sleep. This.woild help its.life.span.

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

Those are good numbers, and nothing outrageous at all. Overclocking to 4.5Ghz with 1.23V won't hurt the lifetime of chip at all.
