I made a question earlier about overclocking the 3570K to 4.5 GHZ, and is on my way to get it 100% stable. Unfortunately, I ended up with one of the worse samples. I am currently running it at 4.4, at the high voltage of 1.260v , LLC:auto (Lower caused BSOD and app crashes). I have a good cooler (CM 212 EVO), so temperatures are not bad I am more concerned about the voltage required for 4.5 GHZ (1.295v + LLC Extreme = 1325v). My question is; Is this voltage inside of a safe level, and how much would the lifespan be affected?

More about : 3570k ghz proceed

Suggested is under 1.3v, you do not want to be exceeding it if you want your CPU to have a long life.

I guess I will stay at 4.4 then.

Hmm then you just have a really bad sample.
Unless you have a dodgy PSU.

The PSU is from Corsair, 750W, and I have only a single GPU, so the power can't be insufficient. It just a bad sample, I guess. Anyway, 4.4 isn't bad, it's a pretty decent overclock, but with an average chip, I bet I could go to at least 4.8 with this cooler.
