MSI Z97 Gaiming 5 + i5 4670k + CM Hyper 212 EVO OverClock?

Hi,

I have MSI Z97 Gaming 5 + i5 4670K with Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO + 2x4Gb G-Skill 2133 and PSU Corsair CX-600W +80. I´m thinking OC my CPU when i receive my MSI R9 280X but need help with it :)

Can anyone tell me best OC for this CPU? Stable and save.

    4.4Ghz. Start at 1.22V, if not passing Prime95 torture test with CPU @ 100%, up voltage by [0.01V] until there are no issues, no need to go above 1.3V.

    What I mean by pass is no screen flickering and no Crashing of system. Make sure you monitor your max temp when running Prime95!

    Thank you.. I already have my 280X i buy Gigabyte Windforce OC Version is a good choice? for now is a very good card but is better than MSI?

    I have CM Hyper 212 Evo and Arctic Freezer 13 Pro who is better? With 212 EVO i have 60º playing without any OC.... high temps no? I never test freezer 13 Pro in this CPU.
  3. i put 4.4 with 1.22 vcore and i got 85º in prime!!very high... :S
  4. go lower and higher on voltage, test to see which gives you best temps. If you need to, re-apply thermal paste.

    The Gigabyte R9 280X REV 2.0 is on par with MSI, both great card coolers.

    Ok.. today i try put my Arctic freezer 13 Pro and test again OC when i have results i post here.

    Thank you for card information ! With Gigabyte i can play Watch Dogs in Ultra with 40fps.. not bad! need more CPU :)
  6. Now iam using my arctic freezer 13 Pro.. i do it many tests.. I put Vcore at 1.228v when i run Prime he goes to 1.256v max high temps is 80º Full load indle i get 35º... is good?

    CPU Ratio: 44
    RAM: 2133
    Vcore: 1.228v set bios (when run Prime95 1.256v)

    any sugest?

    Edit:
    i run prime95 for 15min everything ok... now i go play Watch Dogs after 5min gaming my game crash... not stable mode...
  7. that would appear to be safe, if 80 degrees is absolute max, then your good enough.

    ya, with prime95 good but when iam playing got BOSD... I need to find better setting, for now i put default with XMP profile its working at 3.8Ghz and mems 2133Mhz.

    Tell me something... i Put in bios 1.24V but in CPU-Z when run Prim95 says 1.265v why have more than i want? In Bios have many options Auto, Adptive, Adaptive+Offset, Override, Override+Offset, etc..wich one i choice?

    Can you tell me good cooler for my CPU? (not expensive lol)
  9. BIOS will show the correct voltage, that is core system feed specs. Budget for cooler?

    40€ max... I have 2 cooler one Arctic Freezer 13 Pro and one CM Hyper 212 Evo.

    Who is better?
  11. CM Hyper 212 EVO, that is the best choice.

    Ok i will try re-install my 212 Evo iam using Freezer 13 Pro Now.... I like your cooler here in Portugal is 63€ is good cooler?

    What thermal coupound is better Arctic MX-4, CM Thermal Coupound Kit (come with 212 EVO) or CM High perfomance? I have this 3 lol

    Sorry many questions, but iam very confuse with my system i never have i5 before.
  13. CM high performance is best, though no real difference.

    If you are asking about my cooler, yes, it is defiantly a beast.

    I like your cooler... is nice but is for LGA2011.

    CM High Performance is Withe coupound not silver like MX-4.
  15. my cooler is the SE LGA 2011 version, you can get the standard NH-D14 and now the D15 and they'll work with your socket.
  16. D15 is very expensive 115€ and Standard D14 is 75€.. for now i cant buy one.. lol
  17. I think buy new cooler... Good cooler till 70€? I like Noctua D14 (is 75€) but i think is very big for my case Zalman Z3 Plus... in websites cooler likes very big
  18. The 212 EVO is generally enough for people, even for whom who do moderate overclocking.
