Been screwing around overclocking my CPU to see what i can do.
i5 3570k and asus z77-V Lk
I have it at 4.3ghz with the voltage at 1.176. Running prime95, my temps are peaking about 70c. using a CM 212EVO with push/pull case fan config
I don't have much experience with this, but can it handle itself with lower voltage?
woah your voltage is a little low! for the prime95 test your temps seem acceptable as they are under the TJ Max of that CPU. That is good for gaming if your CPU doesn't reach 60 when gaming. All I can recommend is looking at some peoples overclocking capabilities with the i5 3570k and compare theirs with yours!
That's what i thought, it just would crash right? My voltage is lower than most i have seen with the same chip... But mine's stable, think i should up it a little to match others? My temps are good as they sit though
You've got a 'strong' CPU so it can run run faster at lower voltages, chances are good it can also handle higher DRAM well, be very happy, have seen many that are much worse, I'm happy with mine and can run 4.4 at 1.181, and it doesn't have a problem pulling 32GB of 2400
That's what i was thinking that i got lucky with mine.. 1.176 is what im running at, and haven't tried lowering the voltage anymore than it is... I think im pretty happy at what its at right now. I don't need to OC any higher anyways
