1 month ago i bought i5 760 chip and now overcklocked it to 4.2ghz:

its stable with nice temperaturs , i can run prime95 for days without erors or crashes, in game i like the preformance and i dont have any problems.

i want to ask you guys what do you think about my system voltages if they are ok for 24.7 use?

also i use 22 multi is it ok?
system:
GA-P55-UD3L REV 2.3
2x2 trancend 1333 CL9
i5 760 Lynnfield

i realy care not to damage the chip thanks

sorry for bad english.

More about 2ghz advice please
  1. Your voltages look fine to me. Are those idle temps? If they are what are the load temperatures at.
  2. no its 1hour of prime temp , idle is near 23-25c
  3. Nice temps, what cooler do you have?
  4. Ac Freezer 7 pro rev 2.0 , room temp 20-22
  5. Very cool temps for an AC 7
  6. i use several programs , everest ultimate 5.5 , EasyTune 6 , BIOS they all show the same temps..
  7. do you think 22 multi is ok? , i saw several people using 20 x 210 to get 4.2 ghz on this chip.. what is better?
  8. Wasn't aware that cooler did that well, I've read this review and others, so I'm a bit surprised by your results. Either way good stuff, enjoy

    No, keep the multi where it is, less stress on the system overall. You wouldn't notice a difference clock for clock with a higher base clock and lower multiplier. It's like the people with the older systems that want to set the FSB to 450x8 instead of 400x9 on core 2 setups. Just unnecessary stress on the system.
  10. thank you :)
