General overclocking questions. Tags: Overclocking Last response: August 31, 2010 1:57 AM in Overclocking Share Afoxi August 30, 2010 9:05:56 PM Ok, first up: I am running an i7-750 @ 3510MHz, 175MHz*20, but i'm looking to see how far I can push this. How do I go about fine tuning CPU voltages, as in how do i know how much I need/want to use? At what temperatures should I start worrying? At 3.5GHz I am currently sitting just under 70^C. I have a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 fan, so I think i can push this a little higher. Is 80^C normal for a Radeon HD 5870? Is it normal for a GPU to not be able to clock very high? (Tried a +100MHz clock and got artifacts, so i turned it back down to default). RAM - I run a set of G.Skill Ripjaws PC1333, and wish to know what the ideal CAS settings are. Mine are currently at 9-9-9-24, and i think the "Best" settings are 7-7-7-21. Thanks in advance!

Max Vcore for the CPU 3. Max temp for the CPU m 0 l Afoxi August 30, 2010 9:30:48 PM The max voltage for the CPU i already know is 1.375v, just not sure what the max temperature is and when to use what amount of voltage. m 0 l Related resources General Overclocking Questions - Forum Questions about general power usage and overclocking. - Forum New to Overclocking, General Questions - Forum Some General Overclocking Questions - Forum overclocking general question - Forum Can't find your answer ?

That should tell you the max temp. m 0 l jay_l_a August 30, 2010 9:40:39 PM http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?spec=slblc Make sure you understand the difference between Tcase and Tjunction and what temp you are reading. Try RealTemp, that should give you a good idea of where you're at. m 0 l Afoxi August 30, 2010 10:39:11 PM So in something like Everest TCase would be the Generic CPU Temperature, not the Core temperatures right? So if Core (TJunction) is 80 at full load and my overall CPU temperature is also 80^C, is this a problem? m 0 l RJR a b K Overclocking August 31, 2010 1:57:03 AM First of all, Tcase means nothing, your processor doesn't have a sensor that can accurately measure the Tcase temperature. You need to use "core" temps and YES 80c is too hot. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources A few general questions about OVERCLOCKING CPU and RAM...
