    What? noooo, not you... dam I quoted it wrong didn't I?... How do we always get mixed up in what each other is saying/typing...

    Maybe it's just me... :banghead::D

    Oh yeah, I was doing 4.8Ghz @ 1.345V and at 2hr 45min I got a BSOD...:cry: Disheartening..

    I have my new case. CM 690 II Basic. It's very good. Temps were only 1C higher then my 4.7Ghz burn and I'm not finished with case fans yet. :toast:

    Lets start with the IBT, prime later when I have had time to run it long enough (at least 6 hours). BTW coretemp shows wrong VID value ;)

    Does your voltage drop when stressing?

    What cooling do you have?

    My 1.345V drops to 1.320 when stressing.... :( I think if I go to 1.35V I could get a V drop to 1.328V and stay stable.

    Nice chip :toast:

    My voltage actually goes a bit above what I set in BIOS. I think it is 1.330-1.336V under full load. LLC in the ASUS Gene-Z is absolutely great.

    Megahalems + couple scythe gentle typhoons at under 1300rpm.

    ^^^ awesome cooler, I have the Megashadow and I love it. My 2600K @ 4.5GHz and 1.368v stays under 68*. :)

    Nice!

    I always drool at the Super Mega, but can't justify the price for only couple degrees better temps. :cool:

    This one is more than fine, I'm going water soon though. :)

    And prime, 5 hours and still running. Starting to look stable enough for me. Custom settings, with 8GB memory use :)

    Yes VERY nice. :toast: Congrats on the great chip.

    Time to update your system specs on the left.

    Temps are a little high but ambient was warmer than usual. I do believe I could run this 24/7 without heat problems. Nothing will stress it like Prime95 does.

    I'm gonna go higher but I think i'll wait until I get my Kuhler 620 w/dual ultra kaze's to keep temps low. That's unless we get a dry cold day where I live, I might just have to push it then, if that's the case ;)

    Stable enough to play games like mw3 for 5 str8 hrs but not stable enough to run windows media centre live tv and have itunes open and web browsing too, it seems to crash when i put the tele on sometimes strangely.

    After seeing this thread... I decided to swap my "daily" 2600K out for my nice low voltage 2500K.
    Ambient Temp ~16.5C and cooling is under water.

    :/ maybe your idle voltages are too low or too high same with maybe your clocks. You could try messing around with the CxE states if you wanted too.

    Btw, I forgot to disable integrated GPU before I started overclocking. Would it improve the OC results if I disable it? I will disable it anyway tho, I don't need it.

    And final test for 4.8GHz, LinX with over 12GB memory use -> about 1h long test.

    Hmmm, don't think it would improve it to be honest. ...and like the end results! :toast:

    Thanks!

    I sometimes run Prime for two maybe three hours or do a 20 pass LinX but for daily use long term stability I like to "crunch" WCG or Rosetta 24/7. It is not as stressful but as the hours lead into days or weeks I find it works well enough for me. I don't like to risk possibly burning/degrading a chip when benching with big overclocks. If I continue to keep running this chip I'll most likely lower vcore and run 49x or 50x.

    WCG 100% load for ~5+ hrs...

    As you can see the Vcore drops to 1.368V.. But it usually says 1.376V.

    These temps would not be possible without my Kuhler 620 P/P setup. :D
