I'm sorry, but I have a hard time believing this. That's almost a 100% overclock on air. It can't be stable 24/7, and if it is, it must throw so much heat into the room it's unbearable. Aside from that, a 7400 RPM fan must sound like a jet taking off.

As Layback said, 1.65 volts is in the toaster range. Even if it does work 24/7, you're running so far over voltage that you drastically shorten the life of your processor. If you're just OC'ing for sport, or to show off, that's fine, but I find it incredibly hard to believe that you can run that rig at 5 GHz for any length of time before blue screening, or shutting down from excess heat. What kind of temps are you getting? What did you use to load test? How long will it run at full load? With exotic liquid cooling or a Pelletier cooler I could accept that it might be plausible to run stable at that speed and voltage.

I need to see a CPU-Z validation before I even start to buy this one, and that will only tell me if you actually hit 5 GHz. It won't tell me if it's stable.

Even the Ivy Bridge CPU didnt die on 1,67 as u can see in the CPU-Z picture

i tested the Westmere CPU under Chinebench R15 and LinX
I will search for the CPU-Z Pictures

Ahoy brothers

Just checked out the E5620 on MSI X58 Pro-E

Its possible to run it on 4,4GHz without problems


Check this out



Not broken yet





i will try lower voltages tomorrow..

So .. what do you guys think about that ? ^^
All I am concerned now is the power consumption when it's overclocked to that much, I really dont want to increase my electric bills by too much, after all I am not the one who pays the bills so I guess I cant be that selfish, need to be careful with this

So far I haven't seen anything as far as bench tests here
Are you going to visit and post benchmarks or what

Over clocking any computer will not raise the electric bill.

When over clocking a cpu your talking tenths of a volt DC.
You won't have a meter at home to measure the difference in wall outlet change because it would be so minute.

Go ahead and over clock it like you have been posting then you can go to the thread that ThrashZone has posted to gather your bragging rights.

@Layback Bear

Sorry but what do you mean by saying overclocking the CPU wont raise electric bills ? I dont quite understand you, as far as I know it happens often that people overclock their CPU / GPU and then end up " declocking " it just because of getting higher electric bills.
Do you mean that the difference will be barely visible or something like that ?

@TrashZone
Basically, the motherboard Knogle used for overclocking his E5620 is mine, I just ordered it on his address just so he can set the overclocking settings to the motherboard for me and he'll send me both the cooler and motherboard, once that's done I wont have to overclock it by myself because it'd be already done, I'll just have to place the new components in my PC case and that's all.

I guess I'll post my benchmark once I receive the components or just let Knogle do that

What I mean is a over clocked computer will never show a effect on the electricity bill that one can measure. At lease my two over clocked computer don't have any more effect on my bill that a 50 watt light bulb would and I can't measure that either.

To me not over clocking to save on the electricity bill is foolish.
A while back I did a little research on this subject on line.
Their are all kinds of articles with charts and graphs indicating all kinds of things.

When I got done doing all the figuring the amount of extra my computers used being over clocked in a year I couldn't buy a StarBucks coffee with the difference.

Vladimir:

Everything I've read says that a heavily overclocked system might use about 20 percent more electricity than the same system not overclocked. Many Intel processors can provide a good overclock even when using stock voltage.

How much overclocking would add to your electricity bill depends on your local power rate per KWH, how many hours a day the PC runs, how much you stand on the throttle, and ultimately how many watts the system pulls from the wall socket.

In a non-gaming situation, the typical PC draws under 100 watts most of the time.

You can easily measure it with a Kill-A-Watt device.
