How high do I dare to take my Vcore? (3700+)

Recommended Posts

Well, I never said I wanted to feel any difference, I'm just in it for the kicks :)

 

Well... if your in it for kicks... go for it then! Remember 1.65 is probably the max on air for a day to day basis. You can do suicide runs at even higher volts. But key word "suicide" runs.

 

But remember, if your processor happens to fry (unlikely), I take no responsibility for the frying. I'm just saying... 1.65 is generally regarded as the limit. Every processor/computer/heatsink is different though.

I've been prime stable at 3 Ghz for 2 hours now at 1.6 Vcore, had it prime stable for 10 hours+ at 2805, 1.52 Vcore though, so I'll probably settle for that :)

You could probably leave it at that if you wanted to... 1.6 is not too high. Higher than what I would do, but many people have 1.6 running through their processors.

 

What are your temps looking like?

My temps at 3 Ghz, 1.6Vcore was/is CPU: 44, Motherboard: 48, Chipset: 49, GPU: 38 - that's after 2 hours of prime torture, and 27 degrees celcius in the room.

I had my vCore at 1.65 and I don't even want to think about it anymore. I left the computer for 2 min when I was running OCCT and when I got back the temp was 58C and I was about to stop OCCT when it hit BSOD.
