Hello I was wonering if I could get some help on if I should O.C and if I'm doing is the right way.
Here is my PC:
i5 3570k 3.5
ASRock z77 Pro 3
Corsair H60 Water Cooler
Kingston HyperX 8GB 1600 RAM
Crucial M4 SSD 128 GB
Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM
Gigabyte GTX 760 4GB
Corsair 300r Tower
Corsair 750W PSU


So here is my PC temps on 100% load using prime 95 for about 6 min maybe more (I used hwmoniter and realtemp for the temps) overall package was at 68 degrees

Then I went to my bios and not sure what to change for OC when to the most reasonable thing and changed the "Load Optimized CPU setting" and changed it form "Disable" to "Turbo 4.0"


After that I went back and did the same thing running my pc on 100% load using prime95 and temps with hwmoniter and realtemp and heres what i got its kinda high being at 75 degrees for an H60 cooler. I'm not sure why I get high temps its not hot in my bedroom and its not the thermal compound because I had just recently re-did it and cleaned out all my fans etc. Please help me figure out if I can go higher is it safe or should i just go to 4.0 all help is appreciated. any questions feel free to ask

So I have the same CPU as you and I use a Hyper 212+, and I OC'd to 4.2ghz and I wasn't getting temps any higher than 70c on load. I looked around the internet and saw that with the 3570k 4.2 is a really safe overclock, and any higher you want to be under water, so I didn't OC any further. I'm not sure how you are getting these kinds of temps with the h60, however it is possible that you didn't install the CPU cooler properly. And I'm supposing that the first picture is without OC, and even 60c+ is a little high for running it at stock speeds. It must be the way you seated the h60 to your CPU, you way want to try to re install the cooler, with new thermal paste and all. That is the only way I can see the temps changing for the better. And maybe find an overclocking guide on your motherboard and see how other people do it. Hope this helps!
