I was wondering, what temperature is a safe/the max I can overclock my 3770k at?
And at what voltage for each of the temperatures?
105 degrees celsius is the TJ Max for that processor. Going any higher than this could cause damage, and your CPU will automatically throttle itself down or turn itself off to prevent that.
Anything below that temperature is technically safe, but many reviewers are saying that 85 degrees is a good temperature to stay below for a daily, normal use overclock.
The voltage you use will be whatever is required to reach your desired clock speed, it varies for each individual chip. As long as you don't exceed the maximum temperature, you can use whatever voltage you want, but lower is obviously better. Don't exceed the chip's max voltage of 1.52 volts.
I'd prefer to stay under 1.3 volts for a 24/7 usage ,and I think you can get nice speeds even @ 1.2v that's safer and cooler.
Actually a core i7 3770k running 4.6 Ghz is very stable @ 1.2v and if you were lucky you will get this at around high 70's or so.
