Default Re: What voltage to use?

You can get a cooler Master 212 evo for around $30 even the 212+ is a good cheap cooler if you have the clearance.I do not like running my voltage over the recomended because it usally shortens the life of the CPU.I like to run my at the highest setting with the lowest voltage.My i7-3820 run at 4750gig at 1.265v but if I want to run it at 5gigs then I have to really increase the core voltage to 1.425v and that 250mhz is enough for me to worry about in gameing.
