i5 2500k Voltage
So I have been doing some digging, but not enough apparently. Intel's spread sheet says that the MAX voltage is 1.52v... Is that the max safe 24/7 voltage, or is it the "death is imminent" voltage?
I bought the tuner plan thingy for 20$, which activates on February 3rd, so I am going to really push my cpu then. Right now it is at 4.9ghz @ 1.43v
Just for reference, yes I have adequate cooling.. Its in a custom loop, xspc rasa block, dual 120m rad, triple thick. My cooling can definitely handle the clock, and voltage, it maxes at 63 degrees.
But the question remains, what is the maximum "safe" voltage before these chips start to degrade?
Oh well, maybe the chip i get from the tuner insurance will be bined higher haha
1.52 is the official 24/7 max voltage.
i proably would not sit your processor at that voltage 24/7 even under the best water cooling available tho tbh.
1.45 is prob as high as i would go with amazing cooling and tbh i don't think its worth it over 1.38v @ 4.5-4.7ghz to get like 4.8-5.0ghz.
Yeah, it didnt seem worth it... I poked a hole in ym rad, so im back to air cooling for a bit.. having fun with 3.3ghz lmao
