Hi, I was wondering if 1.14v- 1.16v is safe for a 4.2ghz overclock on i5 3570k. Will these voltages cause any damage for 24/7 use? My temps are med 60's to high 60's on prime 95. Idling is 32- 40c. My voltages dont drop since i didnt oc using turbo multiplier so will this voltage be okay for 24/7 use?

1.16v is a pretty low voltage in general for that cpu, so your fine on that end. some people have the voltages near 1.3, which is the average heating point of the cpu. high 6x celcius on load testing sounds about right. 32-40c idle is about right as well, as my i3 at stock is like 34-35 on idle with stock cooler.

No way dude u can actually go up a lot more and still be a safe 24/7 OC. Just keep temps <80c. Tmax is 105c. Check out the Ivy Bridge OC guide. http://www.overclock.net/t/1247413/ivy-bridge-overclock...

If u just want 4.2ghz you can just leave Vcore on Auto.



im at 1.15v vcore solid , so it doesnt go below that even at idle, and doesnt go above 1.16v at max load, is this safe and good ? :)  ! Temps range low 70's to mid 60's.

ty for the respond , so im oced at 1.15v @4.2v, idles at 1.15v max load no more then 1.161. Is this safe? Temps are low 70's to mid 60's.

Under load I am sitting at 1.33-1.35 and so far no one has said anything to me about those being usafe for 24/7 use. Turbo clocked to 4.6ghz, so when I am not using the computer it drops to 1.6ghz / .96-.97v Speedstep is disabled so I go straight to 4.6

mine drops to 1.6ghz aswell , but the voltage doesnt seem to drop.

so i got bsod at 1.145v LOL, so im back to 1.152v at idle 1600mhz, and 1.155v full load, temps dont go over 73c, is this good? :) , the voltage is always at 1.152v. Also im getting a weird noise in my computer whenever i turn it on , its been like that since ncix made it for me. Is it the processor? It seems to come when im surfing the internet, or defraging.

Safe, yes. Anything that runs p95 at full load with temps < 80, voltage < 1.4v and stable is good. Did you try 4.2ghz with Vcore- Auto?
