Finally got around to doing this:


Validation link:



Water FTW. Load temps at 4.5 are about the same as my old Q6600 @ 3.0 on air.
Currently doing Prime95 in blend mode. 8 hours done and so far it's stable.

Thermaltake's Water 2.0, but I replaced the rad with a BlackIce unit I got from TNT2bluz a couple of years back.

4.5 is super easy for this chip, didn't even have to raise voltage. Gonna try taking it to 5.0 on the weekend, but first things first, when this stability test finishes it's time figure out SVID and offset voltage so I can get a proper 24/7 setup that doesn't compromise on idle power.

Testing at 4.5GHz pretty much done. 45x105 is Prime-stable at 1.3V

Took it back down to 4.3GHz for 24/7 running with x43/x42/x41/x40 turbo ratios for 1/2/3/4-core turbo. VID at 1.23V and offset of +50mV to give 1.28V at 4.3GHz. Drops down nicely to 1V when idling at x12.

Update:
Settled down to an all-core turbo ratio of x43. After monitoring for a few days it seems my max temp on regular use is 53C

Last time I OCed was back in around 2006...with the details of that OCed rig in my sig.
And that rig (used by the kids) finally died on me January 2014...not bad, it lived a rich fruitful life.  B)

^Baloney!
2 of my units have been OC'd for the past 5yrs!
they become obsolete before breaking down.

my processor is oc'd since 2012. processors are very durable when it comes to overclocking pero different story when you talk about graphics cards.

Both CPU and GPU overclocked and running 24/7, but I did the OC properly so they still downclock when idle.

GTX670 @ 1200MHz max boost, 324MHz idle.
i7-3820 @ 4.3GHz/1.28V all-core turbo, 1200MHz/1.068V idle

24/7 overclock as well on my i5-3570k @ 4.5 GHz.  my old Q6600 and E5400 did 3.0Ghz and 3.6Ghz respectively 24/7 and yeah, they were obsolete before they broke down.  ung board pa, needed new caps after 5 years and it ran for 2 more before I retired them

my new MB has a manual knob for overclocking, everything is automatic (according to the instruction manual). Will try it one of these days.

^ Doing that will likely end up with having too much voltage pumped into your CPU unnecessarily.

Dude! Those early Celerons were the bomb. Pentium II had an off-chip cache, so the 300A oc'd to 450 was actually faster than the real Pentium II 450

Also, Intel didn't bother with disabling stuff, so those same Celerons could run in SMP when given a server board to work with. Glory days of unlocking and overclocking when tweaks resulted in very real performance increases and genuine bang for the buck. These days you have to start off with the top of the line K chips before you can even begin to OC.
