I have two radiators and my 360 rad is hooked up to my cpu. I can only overclock it to 4.5Ghz before it starts getting into the nearly 80c range. I've had this rig for about a year now and this is the first time im overclocking. What voltages should I use? I would really like to get to 4.7 or 4.8. Whenever I try to overclock past 4.5 my system crashes after running prime95 for about 30 seconds
so it's a temp issue? if so, double check the contacts of your cooler.
if it's not a temp issue, im thinking that you have hit a wall maybe? or maybe it's your board that is limiting you
I have the ASUS Sabertooth Z77
It's definitely not the motherboard limiting you, that's the same M/B I'm running with my 3770K, so how about lets start with you listing the rest of your missing specs by exact brand and model number, just your, memory, GPU, power supply, will help greatly, plus the voltage you're using for the 4.5ghz clock?
