If temps were not an issue(assuming hovering around 60c full load), how many of you would run/have run your overclocks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days year pumping 1.6v + through a C2D cpu ?

Me either, but I don't think that chip would last very long.

maybe... providing it was a 65nm chip. but that's only if I truly needed it. so, i'd say its 50/50.

 

Definitely not on a 45nm.

45 nm would croak in under a week. If you find one that tolerates vcore rather well (and is 65 nm) then it might go for a year. I really dont recommend it though.

I would on my quad if it gave it a lot more mhz. But I think most C2Q's when you start hitting higher than ~1.55v the voltage increase/mhz gain ratio drops considerably. I'd have no problem running 1.6v. I also have no problem letting my temp hit 79C in stability testing. But i'm also willing to buy a new cpu if I burn it out.

Sorry to hijack your thread, but would my E8400 be alright with 1.425V 24/7?

That's a load of bollocks! I ran my E6400 at 1.615V's (CPU-Z, 1.65 BIOS) for like 2 weeks it was perfectly fine! Still working today in a mates computer!

I wouldn't ;)

 

Especially 45nm chips which can run at 1V, so 1.6V would be 60% increase over stock... sure I did it a few times, but certainly not 24/7

Ok maybe that's a slight exaggeration but it was to emphasize how fast they die.
