(1.12v) Having a large amount of room heat wise, I was wondering what the limits were for the i7-930's in terms of Heat, and maximum voltage for 24/7 useage.

Temps don't go over 80C and according to an hour of IBT with 8GB of RAM, appears to be stable. m 0 l JackNaylorPE a c 213 à CPUs a c 151 K Overclocking July 31, 2012 9:23:17 PM I keep my son's under 72 at 3.8Ghz w/ HT enabled.

Ask ! Get the answer Shotzo July 31, 2012 9:39:50 PM From the specifications for the processor: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/core/... Tcase (processor case temperature) maximum at 130W TDP is 67.9c Tstorage (absolute maximum temperature while in storage) is 125c (processor junction temperature) VID must not exceed 1.375V (absolute maximum rated value for Vcc) I imagine going beyond these specifications will result in immediate irreversible damage. Getting close would result in decreased longetivity. m 0 l azathoth a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking August 1, 2012 12:16:32 AM It appears i'm having a voltage regulation problem. Setting it for 1.2775v results in being fixed at 1.305v, yet setting for 1.23 (or lower) works as intended. ** Setting it slightly higher seems to have fixed this, apparently only that particular value I was aiming for is bugged and sets the system at 1.305v m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
