    meh probably over 1.7 volts in bios.

    Not interested lol

    24/7 clocks are what impress me!

    I think every second of that vcore is a Russian roulette. Didn't they kill 32nm i3/i5 chips in reviews with less voltage in the time it took them to do a review ?

    i think so. but i was using sarcasm. honestly i hope to get one by the end of this year. and i might do this once to get the SS then do something more reasonable.

    Speaking of. I'm going to have a 32nm chip soon. Do you have any recommendation of what the new "danger zones" are for OC voltages on this lower process?

    Now that would be sweet to own and have at the same time, 6 cores at 5Ghz each plus the hyperthreading as well, if only games would take advantage of that:cry:

    This might actually be a viable solution for crunchers... saves room and requires 1 less MB/HDD/PSU etc etc. Once the lower end 6 core variants come out I'm sure many crunchers would upgrade.

    It's not going to happen in 2010 people... They still need to sell dual-quads to the mainstream market.

    They will have a regular cheap six core this year. There is no way they don't.

    Except that's not what my people at Intel tell me. It's not on their agenda to make a 6-core chip fiscally available when they could make more money selling smaller chips.

    By the way binge, seeing as my 65nm starts getting damaged after 1.55 volts and my 45nm was 1.45 volts I think 32 will probably be around 1.38 volts or so?

    Just a guestimate.

    45nm was 1.53V on the core as an absolute maximum to be specific. The 32nm seem to be 1.4V

    [​IMG]

    45nm VTT was 1.35V. It seems like these chips have more robust materials. All around it seems like this is stronger than the 45nm chips.
