|Ok so Im setting up a new system for the upcoming game Battlefield 4.|
CPU: i7 4770k @ 4.6 GHz (1.480V!!!!!!!!!!) + Corsair H100i
Ram: G Skill Trident X 2400MHz 16GB
PSU: 80+ Platinum 1250W
Graphics: 2x Gigabyte GTX 770 SLI @ 1200 MHz~
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero
Case: NZXT Phantom 630 (7 aftermarket fans, lots of cooling) + aerocool 2100 touch fan controller
SSD: 2x Samsung 840 PRO Series in RAID 0
+ Blu-Ray Drive, ect ect.
OK. In ALL my years of overclocking I have NEVER had a chip require so much over the stock voltage to run so fast. You hear of people running 4.7 GHz+ on 1.2v when my chip decides to not run 4.6 at anything below 1.480 -_- Loving haswell so far.....
Anyway will this high voltage completely reduce my CPU's lifespan? The H100i coupled with Adaptive mode allows me to run from 30c-60c temps which is awesome.
Also, would overclocking my gigabytes gtx 770's further be worth it? I mean they are stock OC'ed at 1200Mhz anyways...
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
