I5 3750k at 4.74ghz 61 degrees

This is my first time over clocking, I just built this system today. Using a ASUS p8z77 v-pro, intel i5 3570k, custom water loop. I am currently stress testing with a multiplier of 46 and BCLK Frequency of 103 running at 1.25 volts. Highest temp I have gotten on one core is 61 degrees.

Should I increase voltage and then increase Frequency or Multiplier? I would like to reach 4.8ghz just for SnG, I think this temp is pretty low from what I have been reading. What are you guys thoughts?

More about 3750k 74ghz degrees
  1. i wouldn't stop till your atleast hitting 70C, and i would keep at the multiplier
  2. so continue to up the voltage and up the frequency?
  3. yes, try not to go much above 70-80 degrees (Celsius) though
  4. Just got a blue screen, to compensate should I increase voltage?
  5. Is there a max I should increase voltage to? From what I have read people say stay below 1.3v but im at 1.31. is it just based off temp?
  6. ok right now stress testing with IntelBurnTest top temp is 75 C. 105.5 frequency, 1.34 voltage and 46 multiplier. 4.853 ghz. Seems to be doing alright
  7. yeah, i wouldnt push it any further, nice overclock though :)
  8. a lot better than I expected. 3.4 all the way to 4.85 is a ton!

    The only thing I would recommend is just using a 48x multi and setting the BCLK back to 100Mhz. The system buses that are tied to the BCLK don't like being OC'd very much (especially the USB and SATA buses).

    It can damage USB components and cause data corruption over time with drives on the SATA bus, so it's best to just leave the BCLK alone. It's not like you need that extra 50Mhz anyway...
  10. Just upped the multiplier to 49, changed BCLK to 100mhz. so 4.9ghz OC. doing my burn test right now, actually have lower temps than I did at 4.85ghz. Should I go for 5.0ghz? change multiplier to 50x? Current temps are maxing at 72 Celsius

    Low 70's is about as high as I'm personally comfortable with, but a tad higher is OK. I suppose you can try 5.0 and see, I just wouldn't let it get any higher than 80C.
  12. Meh ill just leave it at 4.9. That is plenty lol especially considering my old build (what im used to) was only 2.8ghz
  13. Hell yeah it is! A 4.9Ghz 3570K is freakin' awesome, I must say. :)
  14. wow can i just say that is an AWESOMe overcock and i hope you hit 5 ghz
    amd ade world record of 8.4ghz with their bulldozer and considering amds cpu's are substantialy slower even at the higher clock rate that is awesome.
    is the speed your stating with turbo mode or without?
    also maye you could add extra fans or somthing i wouldnt let it get above 70 personaly.
  15. At 4.9 I was hitting temps of 81 Deg. Cel. after about 10min of IntelBurn. I changed it back to 4.85 and I am idle temps of 35-40deg Cel and Burn temps of 75-77. Is that alright?
  16. This is what my system looks like. I am going to be getting a few more LEDs to go in it and make it glow better. the "UV Reactive" Blue coolant I have in it is not really glowing.

    intel burn test creates huge ammounts of heat, unless your planning to fold, or prime95 all the time, i wouldnt be too worried about an 80C synthetic test

    and bulldozer got up to 9GHz btw
  18. Just as an FYI, Ivy Bridge has a lower Tcase than previous CPUs. The Intel Documentation lists it as 67.4°C.

    Anyway, pretty impressive OC. Hopefully it lasts a while!
  19. What is Tcase? lol
  20. its the highest "optimal" temprature for your cpu :)
  21. oh lol should i bring the OC down some?
  22. Depends how concerned you are about longevity. If you want to get 3-5 years out of it, yes definitely take it down. Chances are that extra speed isn't really boosting your performance much anyway other than in some limited functions, because it's already faster than everything else in your PC lol.
