I know that very well. Being 'stable enough' (for me) isnt worth stress testing for extended periods. I would rather crash every hour than do some of the testing others do. Have seen some do up to 20 hours on P95, as if their lives depended on it. Ironic in that it may cause early degradation making things less stable for their target OC.

I think my 2600k has degraded over time as I need to aim for 1.36 volts for a stable 4.5 ghz where as when it was new that was 1.33v.

Saying that it can actually achieve a rock solid stable 4.7 ghz at 1.39 volts with the manual voltage, with the offset voltage it's a different story though.

I keep it at 4.4 ghz atm (was leaving it at 4.2 until recently). I'll be aiming to replace it either with coffee lake or ryzen 2.

My i5 750 was running 4.0 @ 1.375v since i got it about 3 months after premiere so its like 7 years now or more . I sold it and it's still running on the same oc!.

But it had great cooling ( Scythe Mugen 2) and normally it wasn't going above 70C.

I managed to push my 2500K to 4.7GHz. Previously, it wouldn't go above 4.2, and I didn't know why. Here's the crazy thing: I set "PLL overvoltage" to DISABLED. Then it worked.

Wth? Normally I would expect that this must be enabled in order to push high clocks... That's just weird.

CS:GO frame rates went from a 240FPS-550FPS (minimum-maximum) to 270-620

None of the other games I tried benefited. 1440p with all graphics settings at high or ultra is still bottlenecked by the 980 Ti

Keeping it at 4.2GHz for now. It's still plenty for me, at least with the games I currently play.

In my case, my 3770K is oced to 4.50GHz with a Vcore of 1.25, but lately it would be unstable with some CPU heavy tasks, so I bumped to 1.29V and that made it stable with no noticeable heat increase. My mobo and CPU are more than 5 years old, I suspect that this is more due to capacitor aging than anything else. Its a Gigabyte Z68-UD4-B3.

Clock has been anywhere from 3.8/4Ghz. 4.2Ghz for a very brief moment when I first bought it but didn't feel comfortable running the voltage for it 24/7.

2500k became less stable. I still can run it stable up to 4.1GHz, after that it's not stable anymore.

Remarkable CPU nonetheless.

I would say you have pretty lousy sample man.

As far as it works and performs, I am fine. Don't fry your tight sample

Bought enough time for me to switch to affordable 6-8 cores. I just hope it will last long enough to make a great jump to 8 cores Ryzen v2 (or maybe Intel, if it brings something like amazing on the table, like it did with Sandy Bridge).

A lot will do 3.8-4.0 no problem.
Mine would do 4.2ghz at 1.4ish volts.

Pretty good CPU for the time.

Yeah, it pretty much is the norm for them. I remember at the time, faulty boards were going around, specifically with foxconn sockets. I was paranoid, nonetheless but turns out I was lucky. (Knocks on wood)

Typically, I'll use every ounce of it till I have no choice but I am getting that itch for an upgrade. Going back and forth between new CPU/MB/RAM or just slapping an x3470/80 in this and see how it does. 70s are on the cheap, unlike the 80s, which is quite counterproductive.

I've been running 4.5-4.6 the whole time on my 3770k since March of '13. I haven't had to go higher than about 1.3v on this chip.

I've had a few sporadic BSODs since win10 has been installed and after updates, but generally its fine under load.

My 2500k is still running fine @4.3Ghz (1.29v), been at that clock speed for years. Passed it on to younger brother - plenty fast for what he plays but I'd guess I could sqeeze a bit more out of it if I up the voltage.

2600k@4.7ghz 24/7 since official release, still going strong under water. Last 200mhz from 4.5ghz to 4.7ghz was expensive in terms of voltage - 1.3ish to 1.44 - but still LinX stable for hours with 2x8gb 2133mhz DDR3.

The 2133mhz DDR3 really gave this old thing a new lease on life and lifted it far up the AIDA CPU ranking and FPS got a serious heafty bump aswell....

Never a hickup, 100% stable at all times and always on, for work, for 4K media/video and for daily normal usage.. This stability and speed has cured all upgrade itching for years, even though Ryzen was hard to pass up, will revisit Ryzen later this fall, hopefully with better overclockers/steppings..

Currently stuck at 4.1ghz @ 1.33v.

RAM seems to be the limiting factor sometimes a lot more than cpu multiplier.

Original was 2.67ghz @ 1.22v so i'm happy with that. Got the D0 chip so its a slightly more voltage hungry chip.

43%+ overclock on Sandy for last 5 years.

Im starting to think this chip will never die.

My i5 2500k has been at 4.5ghz @ 1.3v since release.

Only weird issue for me is my multiplier is stuck @ 45. Won't change, even after resetting the CMOS. I get a rare BSOD every bluemoon too. Upgrade time for me!
