Default safe vcore for sandy bridge-E

Is 1.39v safe?

Currently i am at 4.874ghz on my I7 3820 with 1.39v and it does get up to 1.396 or 1.4v at times, is that safe? My temps stay below 70.

CPU-Z Validator 4.0


I can get it up to 5.0 I am sure of it, with maybe 1.45v

That is fine. I'd personally go up to about 1.475V and feel safe as long as it was cooled properly.

Same as any other processor of yesteryears.

Keep it under 70 at load and you'll be fine.

I'd say up to 85C is fine. You'll likely lose stability before you reach temps that high.

For SB-E as many Intel CPU's:
- 1.4v optimal
- Load temps Gaming n day to day use try and stay under 70c (60c - 65c I prefer)
- Load Temps extreme stress testing 80 - 85c

Electrical Degradation can vary from Chip to Chip.....personally I certainly would stay below 1.45v for 24/7 use.
