With the new IvyBridge CPU's I am considering an upgrade but I have noticed there is hardly any information regarding overclocking.
I know it is new, so that in time info will become available but even so the information is limited.
e.g. Generally they discussions start and end with "each CPU is unique so each overclock is different"
It would be nice to have a section in the forums for this.
Regarding the i5 3570k...
I have read the reviews showing that IB doesn't play well with voltage.
I have heard that the MAX voltage should be 1.325v - 1.350v
I have read that a voltage above 1.125v starts producing heat issues
There are overclocking bundles available between 4.4GHz - 4.6GHz (Aria, Scan, Overclockers)
I'd love to know what the voltage of these OC are set at and the heat levels at load.
For example my CPU is running...
Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz
CPU ratio : 8
FSB frequency: 400
CPU Voltage: 1.3875v
NB Voltage: 1.40v
SB Voltage: 1.05v
This could offer people a base line test, and with others a general overview of what is obtainable can be established.
Others could also offer advice.
e.g. Mine becomes unstable with a ratio of 9, even when the voltage is increased.
People might have the knowledge to help overcome this issue.
