Core i5 3570k Overclock questions

I have two questions. I just overclocked my 3570k processor to 4.5 GHz with 1.05 volts. I ran prime65 for 15 hours with no errors or warnings with an average temp of 62c

1st ?: Is this a good overclock?

2nd ?: Will performance suffer any if the voltage is not higher? Should I raise the voltage to keep it at 4.5 GHz? It seems that a lot of people have 1.2-1.3 volts.

Thank you!

  1. 1. Yes.
    2. What kind of CPU fan do you have?

    EDIT: Other posts are right. Don't up the voltage.

    1. A good oc. I suspect you have a good chip.

    2. So long as you are stable, keep the voltage as low as possible. A good chip can oc higher on the same low voltage.
  3. Nice OC with 1.05 volts! Also, I wouldn't even bother raising the voltage (the thing is stable).
  4. thank you all for your answers! Godspeed!
  5. Corsair h100i with fans in balanced mode
