Still surviving. This chip is really good for overclocking. 5ghz at 1.48 core voltage on gigabyte z77x- d3h MotherboardTemps are really good it's not even hit 80° when stressing. Btw way running with custom loop with 360 rad

That's probably about average. That Vcore is very high for daily use.

My 3770K used to do 5GHz at 1.32v. ;)

Oh, I know, but I wouldn't really call it a 'good' overclocker on that voltage. ;) :D

I love these chips. I run mine at 4.2 GHz on stock voltage on my Asus P8Z77-M Pro. They are built with plenty of headroom.

My best one. CPU has not been de-lidded.

I've tested a lot of them and it seems the average @ 4.5Ghz is around 1.25v. I find anything under 1.2v is a good CPU.

if only I had a decent motherboard when I had my 3570k but the bugger wouldn't budge past 4.3ghz, still that's why I ended up buying a Ryzen, so you know? silver linings and all that, but 5ghz is pretty damn impressive :rockout:

Ivy Bridge CPU's still overclock better than worst of the worst - Skylake, like i5 6600K and i7 6700K. I have yet to see any i7 6700K or i5 6600K to hit 5 GHz without surpassing 1,5V and remain stable. Even those are can reach 5 GHz are extremely rate, like 1 out of 1000 or rarer, while 99% of them cannot even reach stable 4,9 GHz without surpassing 1,5 V or stable 4,8 GHz without surpassing 1,42 V...

Well, a hand picked 3770K I got to replace it was able to do 4.8 at 1.2 but wasn't stable. To be honest, it wasn't stable at anything including stock. BSOD about once a week sometimes more. That motherboard, Z77XUD3H also hated any ram I put in. Garbage motherboard and it turned me off Gigabyte for good.

The 8600K and Z370 Taichi I have was able to do 5Ghz at 1.26 but I couldn't dial the stability in while remaining at a temperature and voltage I was comfortable with 24/7. I also got my ram to run at 4300. But, since I couldn't tell a difference between stock and overclocked, I just raised the multiplier as high as I could go on stock voltage and run it at 4.6 at 1.168-1.184 core voltage using offset, 46X CPU / 43x NB uncore / and ram at the stock xmp 3200CL14, dram voltage 1.345, vccio 1.0, vcsst 1.0. Never BSOD its been a year at this setting. I hate BSODs and instability so its solid for me. I wish I could run my NB higher but the settings do not stick after 43x even though I can run it as high as the CPU multi when I do it using the XTU in windows, some kind of BIOS bug. A shame because the CPU-NB aka uncore was the one setting that I could perceive some improvement from. CPU never goes over 60*C with the gaming workloads I do, typically it sits at 25 idle and 55 load. Big improvement from my Ivy Bridge system.

Never had a Ivy-Bridge, just Sandy-Bridge E (of which I've had two 3930k CPUs) and Sandy Bridge. First 3930k I don't know how far I could OC it. I was running it at 4.5 GHz for a while. My current 3930k I haven't been able to get past 4.4 GHz, and for running WCG, I run a 4.2 GHz OC to keep temps down some. I donated one of the 3930k systems, but shipped the wrong CPU (I meant to keep the better OC'er). My 2600k would do 5 GHz at 1.38 v

Those would be Sandy chips, not Ivy. Ivy was 4*** chips. Don’t forget that the HEDT is a gen behind for its naming structure. 5 series were Haswell based.

5.0GHz(all cores 24/7 stable) is exceptional for a 3570K. I've had one that did 5.0GHz(all cores) w/ ~1.52V(IIRC), one that did 4.7GHz(all cores) w/ 1.49V, and one that does 4.8GHz(all cores) w/ 1.48V. You guys that aren't getting at least 4.6GHz are doing it wrong. :p

BTW 1.48V is nothing to worry about on IVB. I ran the one @ 4.7GHz(all cores) with 1.49V for years without issues. I eventually killed it. But it had nothing to do with voltage. Long story...don't want to tell it. Anyway...the one I replaced it with does 4.8 with less volts. So...all's well that ends well. :D

Never had an Ivy here. Here in Finland Sandys were much more popular, just because they clocked higher.

2500K @ 4.7
2600K @ 4.8
G3258 @ 4.7
7600K @ 4.7
7700K @ 5.1
5820K @ 4.5

After those, I went back to AMD.

I'm on a stable 4.8ghz with 1.38v delidded 6600k + z270x gaming 7.
That's pretty nice! I need >1.5V for 4.8ghz on my naked die wc'd 6700K. It's still kinda fun to abuse it since it stays really cool but I doubt it'd ever reach 5.0, other than a simple cpuz validation perhaps. Your 6600K could prob do 5.0 stable on save-ish voltage! :D

. Your 6600K could prob do 5.0 stable on save-ish voltage! :D
Already tried it to see if I got a good CPU, though it had seemed to hit a wall and even 1.45v wasn't doing it.

Sweet? How's that chip temps on underload?
It's delided, liquid metal and kryonaut thermal paste. Temps when playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey which put CPU usage @ 80-100% across all cores sees me hitting temps of 65-70c. Aida 64 stability testing will hit temps of 80-85c. The CPU is cooled with an old Corsair H105 with Noctua redux 120mm fans .

5.2Ghz (x52 multiplier) 24/7 stable @ 1.45v.

6600K/6700K hitting 5GHz is AFAIK rare, IMO that's where Kaby Lake steps in, since they simply overclock more than Skylake. My old 7700K could go further than 5.1GHz, but I it wasn't worth the extra voltage. CS:GO stable even with 5.3GHz. :D

Delidded, liquid metal and watercooled.
