    That isn't the point, four dead CPU's, you shouldn't have gone pass 1.4v

    What cooling do you use, and do you monitor temp during ocking? Also don't be too aggressive on the voltage when ocking, start with the lowest voltage possible and increase the frequency upward and stress test and repeat till you got a blue screen etc...

    I can hit 4.5 ghz with stock voltage without a sweat, dont know why you even need to get to 1.45V. Seems like its not a bad CPU problem either since you killed 4 in a row.

    As a reference, I even undervolt my CPU to 1.05V and overclock it and have it run stable at 4.2 Ghz 24/7 with the highest core temp during stress test around 50C

    it seems to be way better than b4..

    I have the 2400mhz 10-11-12-28 2T I think it is

    well i dropped it down to 8-8-8-24 1T 1600mhz and holy crap it's so much faster

    I think ivy likes lower cl

    the response is more amazing instead of a slight delay like way less delay

    the feel is so much better navigating throughout windows

    What exactly is "so much faster"? Do timings matter again? The last time timings mattered for me was in DDR (1) times. 2-2-2-5 was so sweet @ 220MHz.

    Anyway, I dont care about timings anymore when buying RAM. I just get any 1600MHz stuff and thats it. 8GB of super fast DDR3 RAM wont get you any more FPS than 1333MHz CL10.

    Your suspicions are true, theres similar issues with SSD endurance as well since the smaller manufacturing process of the flash NAND means smaller transistor walls which wear out faster.

    However, that is not the reason your CPUs failed. No matter how good your cooling, increased voltage exponentially shortens the lifespan of the transistors, theres a certain limit with the CPU that once you pass dramatically increases the chance of transistor failure and you went past that.

    2-1-1-5 @ 230mhz was better :p

    Re: just got the 3770K from 2600K

    So.., is it true that OCing recent CPUs like Ivy Bridge at stock voltage and stock cooling will shorten their life span dramatically? I have 3770 (non-K), overclocked to 4.3Ghz (when on Turbo) with stock 1.5v and stock cooling, running quite cool. Should I try to lower voltage? I was hoping to make it last good 3 years or so.
