    5930K 4.375 GHZ Safe?

    MY PC:
    Rampage V Extreme
    Corasir H110I GTX
    Thermaltake Core V71
    16GB DDR4 3000 MHZ 15-15-15-35-2N, 4x4GB (Quad Channel) (Gskill Ripjaws 4 F4-3000C15Q-16GRR) runing with XMP Profile (default one) at 125 BCLK (default)
    5930 @ 4.375GHZ Cache at 4.25ghz
    CPU Voltage 1.285
    Cache voltage 1.27
    System Agent Voltage 1.22

    I ran The RealBench 2.4 stress test for 15 Minutes (with up to 8GB RAM option) and passed it, The Highest temp on any of the cores was 76c. Is It Safe for the long term?
    For 3 Years at least? (Assuming I clean it when needed) In Games My CPU temps and usage are much lower of course.

    Edit: Should I change the source clock tuner to 80hm or stay at auto?
    Just for fun I Used The CPUID CPU-Z Bench (recieved 1985 in single threaded and 12848 in multi threaded for the matter 19% faster than stock) When I pressed the memory tab,
    I saw that the NB Frequency was 2750mhz compared to 3000mhz on stock settings, even though I overclock the cache frequency. Is it normal?

    Hi KillerOC.....with that name how come you are asking about safe?

    I'll stick my neck out and say that personally I would take that back a bit....particularly cache voltage...1.27 seems a lot for 24/7 peace of mind and for 24/7 PC use, ocing cache wont bring you much reward

    SA volts are on the upper side of where I'd want to be too but OKish

    At the end of the day one CPU may last forever at those volts and another degrade quickly....all you can do is think that lower is better in general, to avoid current degrading things...

    If you are looking for longevity, Intel speedstep is a seriously nice feature...something that 125BCLK will take away from you...

    3000MHz is very doable on 100strap... and this, combined with adaptive voltage will give you good turbo performance but drop clocks and volts when you are not taxing the PC

    I'd try 100 BCLK....find voltage for 4.4GHZ core...will be about where you are now...plug that into adaptive.....leave cache at auto and set up RAM manually if XMP is changing to 125 BCLK....

    And the Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan, if you don't mind paying a small price for peace of mind

    First of all thanks. I'm not using My PC 24/7, Far From it. with 100 BCLK MY CPU Wroked a Bit slower. My Temps are fine (I'm just a casual user looking for more gaming performance. especially in Emulators Like Dolphin and PCSX2)
    I purchased the Intel Tuning Plan and It's valid until January 2018 (I purchased My PC at hanuary 2015).

    How Can I tweak it that it will be the exact same speed at 100BCLK (With 4.4ghz instead of 4.375 which really doesn't matter to me)?

    How Can I add Adaptive Voltage? And are you sure that with 100 BCLK (Managed to do that just fine with 3000mhz and at the same timings, but in CPUID The FSB : Dram was 1:30 compared to 1:18 with 125BCLK so probably something was different, and the CPU itself was actually a little bit slower in the CPU-Z Bench even though it was a stable 4.4ghz)
