Realistic Temps Hyper 212+ 2600k

Right now here is my system:

CM elite 310 mid tower
ASUS p8p67 Mobo
Evga GTX 470 OC 805/1610/1700
Intel 2600k OC (4.85ghz) HOTTTTT
CM Hyper 212+

In my current case my cpu idles at 28-33 C and my GPU is around 34C. Ambient temps can be anywhere from 60-70F. I have been playing with the ASUS tool to OC my processor and with this 4.8ghz I try and run Prim95 but after a minute or two the processor reaches 87C and I get worried and shut everything down.

I just ordered a HAF X which I hope will improve the temps a bit, but I have read many posts on the 212+ and others and I just want to know what I can truly expect to get temps wise out of my CPU OC and my heatsink?

Best solution

Despite being a good cooler, the 212+ probably isn't meant for OC's as high as 4.85GHz.

You need to be looking at minimum the Noctua NH D-14 or start considering water-cooling if you wish to push your processor to such lengths. CPU ideally should be kept under 80 degree's.

Be VERY CAREFUL if your over-clocking with the voltage set to AUTO. I wouldn't recommend pushing anywhere past 4.5GHz with AUTO voltage because the motherboard will just throw it loads of power and you could end up easily over-heating or damaging components.

Either -
Down-clock your CPU to a stable level
Get better cooling
Over-clock "properly"

The auto OC will put your vcore too high creating unnecessary heat. The 212+ with 2 fans should be as good as the frio and handle 4.8ghz.

Show me proof of such claim.

Its fairly common knowledge that allowing the motherboard to select its own voltage can cause some serious fluctuations with an OC of this frequency.

I'm not talking about the Voltage on Auto, That is true. I'm referring to the 212+ with 2 fans getting the same temps as a Thermaltake Frio.

Frio only gets about 5C cooler stock vs stock, a second fan on the 212+ would lower 2C (not worth it most say), yes the frio is still cooler BUT and this is a big but: noise, 10db louder and db is exponential, every 3 db noise doubles. The frio is a turbine at full speed and I doubt anyone would want it that loud so they turn it down; down to 212+ performance.

So what are recommended voltages for 4.8+?

I have the HAF 922 with only stock fans on it (for now). I have the stock intel CPU heatsink/fan and I idle at 21*C. Check out HAF 922 man it has more airflow.,

Yep! you need a better case to maximize airflow.
Great choice btw HAFX.
You can put anything you want in that beast cooling wise.
I would change out the 212+ it's not suited for that oc and temps.
Noctua and Thermalright have better options which are also much quieter.
NH D-14,Silver Arrow,Archon,and the Prolimatech Genesis are more suitable for your needs.
Make sure your ram is compatible height wise.

i have mine set to auto voltage with just a slight multiplier increase, BCLK on 100 and my multiplier is at current 45, so i am just getting 4.5 GHz and voltage tends to stay around 1.3-1.325. i have heard that it is recommended to stay below 1.35, some will push to 1.4 although when i have tried this the overclock is unstable. i have the stepping enabled on my processor so it is not constantly at 4.5 GHz which is why i still use auto voltage, although i have ran prime for 12+ hours and encountered no errors where i am at and temps do not go past 67C while at a full load which is well below the tj max (although those tj max measurements are just estimates).

Well i took the advice of the kind people here and I upgraded my cooler. Just ordered an H100 with 4 courgar fans for push pull. Hopefully I have one of the chips that can handle a multiplier of 49!

Thank you to everyone!
