Safe Temperature for an OC i5 3570k? Tags: Overclocking Cooler Master Temperature Intel i5 Evo Heat CPUs Last response: April 2, 2013 7:36 AM in CPUs Share Matf661 April 2, 2013 7:13:43 AM I have an i5-3570k OCed to 4.3GHz Cooled with coolermaster hyper 212+ evo. I have one front mounted fan. http://i.imgur.com/Ri9lqLe.jpg These are my temperatures when on the "high" stress test using intelburn. Are these safe temperatures or am i better off choosing a lower OC? More about : safe temperature 3570k morgoth780 April 2, 2013 7:26:06 AM I'd be worried a bit about the one core that reaches 75C. 67C is by no means an optimal temperature, but it's ok. However, I would recommend running Prime95 for 8+ hours, since the temps may go higher than they currently are during that period of time. wavetrex April 2, 2013 7:31:50 AM 4.3 Ghz should be fine. 4.4 and up is stretching it a bit unless you have a really good case with good airflow. 1.2 volts is way too much for idle ! Normally almost all 3570k should overclock to 4.2 without touching voltage, for 4.3 you might need a very small boost (0.02-0.04) for stability. And about temperature, anything under 70 is ok for long term, considering that tJMax is 105 ..., even 80 should be ok but nobody knows right now how a CPU heated to 80+ would behave in 2-3 years time.
