i7 4770k OC question?

Hello,

I don't have a massive amount of experience when it comes to OC'ing, so I wanted to keep it "safe" and use the "CPU Level up" option in my motherboards ASUS IV HERO -BIOS. I chose the option for 4.2. I have the Phanteks- PH-TC14PE, so I know I'm getting proper cooling.

Now I posted some pics if you guys could enlighten me if I overvolted anything and if my CPU's core temps are a little high during stress tests such as the "torture test" from Prime95.

My idle temps are 28c-30c.

When I stress the CPU for about 20 min my temperatures average 68c-70c, which seems a tiny bit high for only 4.2??

Here are some pics for more details, please elaborate with any concerns.

Thanks

Voltage seems fine at idle and quite good at load.

Those temps are actually very good for Haswell, this chips runs very warm even at mild overclocks.

I'm aware they run hot I'm just comparing my results to other people running 4.5-4.8 and getting the same core temps as me running @ 4.2.

I'm convinced the cpu level up option is a bad idea but I dont feel cumfurtable manually doing anything yet. Would anybody know a good noob guide for overclocking?

Thanks

I would be surprised at seeing any realistic temperatures from people running 4.5Ghz - 4.8Ghz assuming that is a 24/7 overclock under load. Quite a rare event indeed, and almost assuredly custom water loops. My chip will run 4.5Ghz, but it hits 100C on full load, and that just isn't a good idea. (I don't test under gaming conditions, usually AIDA64 with everything on full blast, including my GPUs) Haven't had a blue screen since when I was tuning it back in June, so I think my 4.3Ghz overclock has worked out well.

I don't know about noob guides, that is more or less what the AI Tuner is for. Here is the one I used, have t read between the stuff about extreme overclocking, but it is full of good information.

Three basic things I learned are the CPU Input Voltage, Core Voltage, and LLC.

Raise the Input voltage to 1.8 or so, 1.9 if you are aiming for 4.5Ghz. Core 1.25 for 4.1-4.2, 1.3 for 4.3-4.4, 1.3+ for 4.5Ghz (all varies on your specific chip, mine is about average) I found a single bump up on the LLC to be sufficient, more may be needed for the higher overclocks.

Thanks bud, I'ma give this a nice read and hopefully come up with something :) 

I might pm you and ask some questions if I get stuck, thanks again!
