I have recently upgraded my system with an Intel 3930k CPU and Asus P9x79 Deluxe motherboard. Since getting my new system up and running I have to say I have been very impressed by the performance of the dynamic overclock feature or "Turbo Mode".
With default settings the system underclocks itself to 1.25GHz with a vCore of 0.89 when idle. When under load the system overclocks itself to 3.8Ghz and a vCore of approx. 1.31.
My question: While dynamic overclocking is great at keeping CPU heat and power consumption low at times when you don't need it, I am just wondering what sort of impact dynamic overclocking has on a CPU's longevity? In the long run are you better off running a static overclock? (I have been able to statically OC the system to 4.4Ghz with no issues)
