    So will it crash if it's unstable? Or just display a warning?

    I generally run 15-30 minute stress tests if things seem to be going exceptionally well, when I'm nearing the end of my tweaking I generally run a few hours (2-3) and at the end a 24+hour stress to verify stability, that's more than most people do I will admit and some will say it's outright unnecessary.

    Meh. Pretty average now with current chips, it seems.

    :roll:

    I run 1.4 V on my 3570K @ 4.7 GHz, similar temps.

    Meh. It's not that. I just don't like to create false expectations. Show me 5 GHz.. now THAT is exceptional.

    With Intel's Tuning Plan warranty, you can burn a bad clocker up, and get a decent chip back. 4.7 GHz is nothing.

    Sent you a PM ,BTW. :roll:.

    Yea, gone are the days when 25% gain in CPU speed is anything to brag about. Now try to brag to someone who doesn't give a shit about overclocking, lol.

    It should be underwater this weekend, so perhaps I can show you 5Ghz 24/7 ...or perhaps not :rolleyes:

    For me, it's more about the lack of realisitic gains form overclocking. Like sure ,rendering a video, or crunching, gains are there, but anything else...really questionable.

    We are adding a decent amount more voltage to get these gains, too. It's kinda cool that Intel has made these CPUs are tough as they are, and that they take the abuse we are all dishing out to them, and that Intel will even warranty that, for the cost of 12 beer here. :p

    I kinda wish people would buy that warranty, and push harder.

    Dave! Dont you remember when you were running me thru your new Samsung ram discovery?
    It's also still on air with the old Scythe Ninja Rev.B from skt 478 days :toast:
    [​IMG]

    You broke my heart:cry: when you told me that my M/B "wont" run 2133But that the 1866 was "super refined":)
    Any way as you all have stated before, it's the luck of the draw :ohwell:

    That's impressive! Keep the system running until Intel gives you a reason to upgrade!

    I will push mine to 5.0GHz... I only need H220. H100 is weak for that...

    4.5GHz - 1.162V
    [​IMG]

    I leave here voltage on offset in BIOS on 1.300V and board push more
    Next time I will tip Offset on 25% that would be much less temps...
    but like I say next testing after new cooler... My chip is close to Sandy Bridge but much hotter.
    About 10-15C hotter.

    4.8GHz - 1.300V push to 1.320V in Windows
    [​IMG]

    I expect 5.0GHz with about 1.400-1.425V with Swiftech H220 and same temps like H100 on 4.8GHz, max 95C.
    I will install plus two more fans for push-pull and try than...

    I will melt that Intel grace crap inside... I will disintegrate...

    During all this test motherboard mosfet and VRM are not even hot on touch, maybe 40C.
