Your opinion about my Undervolting of the 7700x (& questions)

Hey everyone ! Hope you're doing well ! 

I wanted to stop the 7700x from going at high temps for nothing (even tho it has been designed for that) so i followed that tutorial about Undervolting and did mine ! https://youtu.be/FaOYYHNGlLs?si=atraw_2rTxCVdSHF

 

 

Here's in the picture what i edited in the bios for the undervolt, i put the magnitude to 10 because it wasn't stable a 30 when i tried back then ! 

 

So yeah i'd love your opinion about it (if it's well made and if it's okay or not ), i'm doing tests to see its stability while posting this

 

Also, general questions i had about thi subject

 

can undervolting reduce the lifespan of a cpu ?

 

Can it increase its lifespan ?

 

Can it cause other components to ''malfunction'' (like the cooling or something else ?)

 

Thank you in advance for all your answers and have a great day =)

Running the CPU at a lower voltage should technically increase its lifespan. But the effect isn't going to be significant enough to matter.

 

Most CPUs should last for decades, much longer than you will typically use it for, before it is replaced.

No.

 

If voltage is too low, your computer might become unstable/crash a lot, but there is virtually no risk of lasting hardware damage. Simply increase the voltage again until it becomes stable.

Okay ! That reassures me, IT guy told me to leave it as default (as it should run normally) but seeing my 7700x running too hot was making me sweat in every senses haha (even though they have been designed to pump heat for max performances).

 

Do you have an opinion on the values i put for the undervolt (in the picture) by any chances ? Like i said i followed the tutorial and tweaked the tdp and magnitude but other than those values displayed in the picture i touched nothing else haha

 

Thank you again for your answers =)

Oh no anormal temps, like from what i recall it was between 50-70 while i was browsing the net or working (not accounting the temps spikes that are normal with that particular cpu), which again from what i saw is normal for a 7700x but for me personally it runs a tad hot haha

My 7700x did -30 all day and ran 83c gaming at 5.5ghz all core.

 

Not sure why you're having issues with the manufacturer specs but heat is relative and the chip can do it for years.

 

Set the voltage and temp limits to your preference.

You are right, i know it's perfectly normal to output those temps for a 7700x but yeah it's just me being picky on that topic haha 

 

Do you find the values i put in the bios (in the image above) for the undervolt "safe and normal" ? like i said i followed the tutorial in the video and only touched what's in the image but we never know haha

Oh and if someday i wanna go back to stock settings do i just have to revert those specific settings i touched and it will be good ?

Yep.   I usually just load Optimized Defaults if I want to go back to stock, but just undoing those will work too if that's all you did.

 

The 7700x tweaked well does an excel job of performing near the top of the heap.   Great CPU.

I agree yes, with the "simple" tweaks i put yes i lost like 8% perfs on cinebench (18336 score compared to 19614 stock score) multicore  (which is really not a lot haha) but like also lost more than 30° C temps while still having those sweet insane performances.

 

The only thing i notices was the voltage whom during the famous temps spikes were going to 1.35-1.4V but honestly i don't have any experiences on voltages behaviour to tell if that's abnormal or just the symptomes of the temps spikes that the 7700x is known for haha (don't know if you have those too)
