Not Bad Intel...

#1
After running my 2.0A at 2.6 for two solid years (air-cooled MCX478), I have finally had to up the core voltage to 1.525 (via Abit's SoftMenu) on my BD-7 Raid to gain rock-solid stability once again.:)

Idle: 38C
Load (22 hours): 45C

Actually, yes.

Snook just let us all know extended overclocking has resulted in long term degradation of his system. (What used to work without jacking the voltage now needs more help to run.) Important point to remember, you do eventually pay for pushing the envelope. The system is now on the path to failure.

Bingo! Well put. However, such a mild voltage increase does not spell out immediate/total system failure.;)

Furthermore, nothing lasts forever...:(

yeah, by the time it does die, it will be time to upgrade anyway.

who cares if your processor doesn't last even 3 years? :)

Lost? Hardly! I'm providing real world "SnookBooger-controlled lab results" (2 year study) right to your front door.;)
