I'm learning how to overclock my CPU considering it hasn't really been been fully utilized the whole time I've had it and its probably a good idea to overclock considering I have the K model and brought my shit with OC in mind
I've got 4.8ghz at 1.33 volts stable. My temps have never gone to 60 before or anything like that ever, they were 40 whilst testing in TF2 Fortnite and high 40s in Cinebench.Thermals are not the issue.
What im concerned about is whether the voltage itself will cause a lot of damage, as in not work in 6months.
Im using LLC mode 2 on my Asrock Taichi z370 board and the Voltage mode is 'stable', stock, whatever that means instead of 'OC mode'.
In Hwinfo64 the max vcore doesn't go above 1.328 and averages at 1.317. using the Intel Diagnostic Test where they give you a CPU load, the VID goes to 1.415 which is what it does on every voltage i've tried on this frequency, but thats apparently normal because apparently VID is just the voltage that the processor is designed to want, not what it gets.
it seems fine but i understand that the voltages that are shown in these sensor monitoring softwares are not accurate and sometimes u get a lot more than u put in knowingly.
on doing research on what other people have found with my i5 8600k and same motherboard, people are saying that any VCore below 1.4 is ok, with 1.35 being standard, however others are saying that they managed even 5GHz with 1.29 or whatever and that 1.35 for 4.8GHz is 'high'
just posting for a more detailed answer to my specific situation because basing my shit on other ppls shit that is slightly different to mine is not good
is this ok to use or not?
im aware my voltage recorded isnt even on the higher side with some people at 1.37 in hwinfo64 but im more concerned about the stability of the voltage being safe i guess
