Default Re: -= Official Intel P67 / Sandy Bridge / i3 2100 / i5 2500K / i7 2600K Review Threa

Sure not all CPU overclock the same which also applies to some motherboards.

I don't like to run my setup 24/7 under extreme condition. I do worry about the long time effect on the CPU and mobo running under very high voltage&heat plus I like to resell my CPU and mobo to some happy new owner.

Except for the benchmarks I don't think anybody would notice if the setup runs 4.3GHz or 4.6GHz (at least I don't), that's why I always lower the voltage a bit for daily use.
