Kind of curious, how many of you hold out for along time by highly overclocking "older" components and setups? I am mainly speaking CPUs and RAM, but I guess anything qualifies. Personally, I always try to buy the very best at the time that I can afford in hopes it will last years to come. In late 2014, I went X99 and snagged a 5930k and 16GB of quad channel ram (4×4). My CPU has been running a summer OC of 4.5Ghz at 1.33Vcore and a winter OC of 4.6Ghz at 1.36Vcore for that long. RAM is at 2400mhz (crappy IMC on mine), but my memory is at 13-13-13-26 @1T and I run the DDR4 at 1.24V with SA voltage offset of +0.1. I still don't feel limited at all in games and get great frame rates. I recently got a 2080Ti after a 1080 SLI setup and it runs great. Shortly after a buddy of mine also snagged the exact same 2080Ti but on a 7980XE setup I helped him overclock a year or two ago to 4.5Ghz with 32GB of 3200Mhz RAM. I never helped him tune his RAM though. His setup is a beast overall. We recently compared benchmarks that look more specifically at gaming (Superposition, Valley, 3dmark...) and I was quite surprised I was within 100~200 points of him. In valley, I actually crushed his score by 400. All settings we aimed at 2K resolution. I tweaked my RAM timings further to 12-12-12-24 @1T and then beat his Superposition score too. Although that required 1.3V on the RAM, so I backed to my previous OC at 1.24V to play it safe as I read rumors that haswell-e's weak IMC could shit at 1.3V for DDR4. Not sure what to believe there... Anyway, curious too see where others stand too. Pretty sure I have tweaked mine to the max and feel I can hold out at least another year or more. Discuss!!!
