That i7-2600k is a freaking champ. I've been running it at 4.2 for 5+ years. I keep thinking, maybe it's time to upgrade... but I think I can squeeze some more value from it. It still does fine with my 4k gaming set up.

my q9550 in my plex server is running 24/7/365 @3.4. It even transcode 4k movies.. It is from 2008 and have run at same speed since i bought it.
My old 2500k i sold to a friend a few years ago. Still runs the same clock i selected when i bought it in 2011, 4.5.
Both those cpu's was great, the 4790k i have now is garbage. Get unstable at 4.7 no matter the vcore. Running it now @4.6 1.28 and it is mostly stable.
(It will have to do until x299 or if it dies it will be replaced by a ryzen.)

Still got my Q9650 running at 4Ghz with 1.36V 24/7. Brilliant CPU, been overclocked since new in 2008, first to 3.6GHz then 4.0Ghz in 2012.

My 4690k however has started to degrade. Was fine at 4.5Ghz 1.25V for about 2.5 years but recently I've had to tone it down to 4.3Ghz to keep it stable.
Really surprised by this especially as my voltage was so low.

Sure it's the CPU fault, maybe VRM section on that mobo has degraded? Some few weeks ago friend of mine had some stabillity issues on his 1155 gaming rig he build somewhere in late 2011 or early 2012. He thought it was CPU fault, 2500K almost 5 years OC'ed to 4.5GHz iirc somewhere around 1.3V. We tried his CPU on my Asus Z68 and it was rock solid on 4.5GHz @ 1.3V, then we tried my 2600K (4.6GHz HT here on my Asus Z68) on his GigaByte P67 mobo and we couldn't overclock it beyond 4.2GHz. So we reverted his 2500K into his GigaByte P67 mobo and lowered the OC to 4.2GHz @ 1.25V and no problems after that. Obvious case of mobo VRM degradation...

We also tried with few PSUs but no change on his side, VRMs o that cheap GigaByte P67 mobo were slowly dying.

Seeing your 980ti could use the extra processing power so trying going higher once again might not be a bad idea.
LOL

My 2600k requires 1.46V to do 4.8 stable. Will bench at 5.1 around 1.53V. I really just don't care about this CPU anymore. It's served me well for 5 years.

Yeah, if I was to keep it a little longer I would probably just push it until it breaks. But now the 2500k is seated in the Asus z77 pro with 16gb ram, waiting to be framed and go on the wall.

Been pricing out core components and the price difference is like a $140 spread between 7700k-1700x-6800k. The difference between 1700x and 6800k is like $60.

I still want to wait around for SLe and x299.

Yeah, you have a 2600k at 4.8ghz. I had a 2500k. I needed extra threads for the few games I play. If I had a 2600k like yours, I would still have it now

Nice, finally a thread where i can brag about my ancient hardware!

Everyone, meet my Q9550, that i bought in 2009 if memory doensīt fail me, overclocked to 4.0Ghz (1,312V) from day one cooled by a Noctua U12P SE2. Still rocking like a true champ withou any problems. And i still can overclock it a little more but itīs not worth it.

Iīm really gonna miss this guy when i buy a new rig...

Nice voltage on that overclock. I need 1.36v for 4Ghz on my Q9650.

Excellent CPUs, I've just played all the way through Wolfenstein TNO and DOOM 2016 on mine. Both played without a hitch, capped at 60FPS for Wolfenstein and maxing out a GTX970 in DooM well above 100fps.

Depends on the game of course but it does still surprise me sometimes.

I did try lowering the RAM speed down to 1600mhz but it still wasn't stable.
My motherboard is pretty good quality so I would hope it's not the VRM.

Although it hasnt happened in your case, I'll bet stability tests like prime or OCCT, etc, quickens degradation potential more than anything else. I can imagine others running prime for 10 hours or more at every 100mhz bump to their OC.

Not quite 5 years, but almost there, 4.5GHz 1.315v [1.296-1.308]. I went up to 4.7GHz, started crashing and 4.8GHz doesn't go into Windows.

I am running my 2600k just fine. The voltage offset is +130mV in the bios, with no other voltages touched. It's rock solid.

Instead in the same time I've changed 3x 7970m died on this laptop (without overclock).

Running a stresstest that long is not even needed, atleast not for Gaming.

30 Minutes to an Hour of OCCT is enough.

my i7-5960X in my server isn't quite 5 years old but It was bought when it hit the market(late 2014?), and its heavily overclocked 4.8ghz (voltage 1.38v) and it has been running consistently for 2+ years without being switched off for more than 5mins since its used in my server. and so far no degradation at all, hopefully it can hit the 5 year mark!

My 2600k kept going strong for all the time that I had it, from 2011 up until recently.
It never degraded, it has always worked flawlessly.
The only reason I got something new was because the board died on me, again, and I couldn't get a matching replacement anymore.
After trying a 4770k and a 4790k briefly I always went back to my trusty 2600k.
