Hi, I am running a i5 3570k at 4.2ghz @ 1.175v , temps are in low 70's.. do you think this is safe 24/7? Will this degrade my chip? Also if its high, what should i lower it too? Please help asap as it was my first time ocing, and i want this Cpu to last! :??:

when are you getting those temps? When you are running prime95 at 100 percent load or just normal usage? if its normal usage thats way too high and you need to drop the oc down...if its prime95 load its a little high I wouldnt be comfortable leaving my oc that high...what cooling are you running? stock cooler or something else?

Hi, the highest they went after 12 hrs prime test was 68, 72, 73,68 lowest were 32,32,23,19. Usually its it idles mid to low 40's , max load to high 60's low 70's :/ .. Im using a coolmaster 212 evo, should i try to low the vvoltage more? Would i be able to without bsod?

the temps are a little high still I would try to lower the voltage just a little bit and see if it works....the new ivy bridge chips have been known to produce a ton of heat at high oc's so this is not abnormal

but, the voltages are safe? Like to run 24/7? i dont want any voltage damage LOL. :non:

yea voltage is def fine....usually the safe level is 1.4vcore but I have heard that you dont want to get even that high with the new 22nm chips

ok so 1.15v is safe enough for 24/7! :) !! It stays at that 24/7 , never drops thats why i wsas worried! Thanks! :bounce:

24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week.

Having the system on for days with it being stable. [:lutfij:4]

oh thanks, but after that will the system die? or what happen?

the voltage doesnt change any time in the day, its constantly at 1.15v - 1.152 -1.16v 100percent load-- temps are 70c max load, 40c idle.

What kind of case do you have? And how is the airflow? Temps shouldn't be that high with that cooler. You may also want to check your thermal paste and positioning of the heatsink/fan. Something doesn't seem right...
