Following is my setup

-i2700k
-GB z77x uD5H
-Noctua NH D14
- corsair carbide 500R (no mods)
- Evga gtx 670
- mushkin enhanced redline 1866 (4gX2)


I used ET6 1st level OC.
Following are the temps

idle - 31C max
IBT max test - 73C max

Are these temperature OK?

Best solution

Personally I think you should use manual controls for OC but that's not what you asked.Anyway 73c on IBT is not bad but don't let it run much higher

Thanks, I would love to know if there is any tutorial that would help me to get around the bios settings, the new 3D bios is a little confusing, and i can't find a tutorial for OC'ing 2700k on Gigabyte z77 bios.

They are decent but could be better.. Add more fans to the case if possible

There are some overclocking guides right here on the forum. They may not be using your motherboard/CPU as an example but the basics are all the same. Just read them and you'll know

73c for only a 4.3ghz clock seems high to me with a Noctua NH-D14.

54.25c @ 5.0ghz, but I have much better cooling than you do, plus I'm manually overclocking.

Sometimes the auto overclocking features, utilize way too much operating system voltages, on auto I've seen voltage spikes to 1.520v, which is Intels tested max limit, have you used CPU-Z and monitored what your voltages were actually running in the operating system?

Thanks guys,
I figured how to manually do it (Thanks to the tutorials on TH), now running 4.5ghz /w 1.315v,@ max 65C.

On another note, do you think i could go up to 5.0ghz and still be able to keep temps under 70c? :D

Every chip is different so only one way to find out. Even if you don't reach 5.0 you already have a decent overclock at 4.5
