Hey guys

Just finished my first over clock i5 3570k 4.2 Ghz @ 1.12 vcore. I ran prime95 for 10 hrs just now and my highest temp according to realtemp is 63c. Is this kind of temps I should be expecting with a H100i cooler with this overclock? I was wondering if the temps could be lower or am I right on the mark in terms of 4.2 ghz 1.12vcore overclock? What else Do you guys think I could change? Could my vcore be a little lower? Any opinions or suggestions would be greatly appriciated!

my specs are

CPU:i5 3570k
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK
Cooler:Corsair H100i
Memory/Ram: 16 gb Corsair vengeance LP
Graphics Card: MSI 7950 Twin frozr III
PSU: Antec 620W high current gamer
Hard drive:Sandisk 240gb SSD
Hard drive 2:1Tb Seagate Barracuda
Case: Corsair Carbide 500r

it is perfectly normal after 10 hours of stress testing what are you talking about... everything under stable 70C is totally safe... intel says your cpu dye can operate up to 100C anyway, ofcourse not for a long time hehe

well, even if it is safe you may want to check if your cooler base attached to the cpu tight enough... i believe it can stay below 60C, even then it is not much difference.

I am getting about 57C in Prime95 with H100i also. Using corsairlink I notice the fans stay around 1300rpm. When I set them to 100% I can drop about 3-4c. For a 'top-of-the-line' Corsair water cooler I honestly expected better. My last system had a H70 and if I recall was a bit lower. Although since I am a corsair brand whore, I had to go with the 100i. I also went with the H760i PSU and I love being able to monitor input and output wattage. I am using a MSI Z77A-gd65 gaming board and was expecting to easily hit 4.7+ with this CPU/Cooler. I honestly wish I would have went with an I7-3770K and stock cooler...I think I would have been better off putting the extra $100 into the CPU as apposed to a cooler that only drops a few degrees over stock.
