just as the title says, is 1.4v about the normal voltage for 5ghz 24/7 OC for a 8700K and is that still in the safe range to operate without worrying about it?? Thanks
I got mine for $345 and I still wish I had waited a few weeks for the holiday sales on the 7820X. Newegg had it for $500 during Black Friday (no pricematch required).I will let you guys in on a little secret. A lot of guys are just getting the 7820x since ... you know ..... the cpu is $499 at Microcenter which Newegg will match which .... you know, supports Quad Channel Memory and ... well, you know ... has those 2 extra cores.
Motherboards are really not any more expensive.
HardOCP almost demands that you get hard with your PC and move on over to HEDT.
Really surprised to see anyone gushing over this CPU especially @ $500
Ive Always been unlucky whenever i bought a cpu before. Always been getting crappy chip. This time around i got lucky with my 8700k. 5ghz @ 1.27 volts. Tried 5.1ghz with 1.28v and stable for 5 hours with prime 95.
Yeah 1.4v should be safe.
