I've read some guides and gotten my 3570K with stock voltages up to 4.3 Ghz. Running Prime95 produces core temps of 60 degrees Celsius on 100% load. Is this good? Also how much further do you think I can overclock this chip? Do I just change vcore when adjusting or are there other settings to change and what would be the vcore max I should go with the Hyper 212 plus cooler?
Ya you get 4.2ghz at Stock Voltage without touching it!! idk bout 4.3ghz maybe!!!
& those Temps you're getting is Very Good!!! The Max on the Cpu is 105c dont wanna go over 90c!! Staying Under 90c wont Hurt your Chip!!
I'm at 4.5ghz at 1.295v with Vcore Loadline on Turbo & its Complety Stable!! You can Go Higher just Depends on your Temps & stuff keep them under 90c
You only Change the Cpu CLock Ratio or Turbo speed & Change the Cpu Vcore or use Offset mode!! Idk how to use that offset thing!! Hyper 212 Plus is alright Hyper Evo 212 is Better what I have
MSI Z77 GD65 Mobo
i5 3570k CPU
2 x 4 GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600 cas 8 RAM
64 GB Crucial M4 SSD
1 TB Seagate 7200 RPM Hard Drive
XFX Radeon HD 6870 (yeah I know its the weakpoint will upgrade soon) GPU
Cooler Master Haf 912 Case
Cooler Master 212 Plus CPU Cooler
OCZ 700W PSU
Windows 8 Pro OS
I believe that is everything for the system.
I'd like to overclock upwards of 5 Ghz if I can do it without reducing the life of the chip.
Nice Build & I dont think you can hit 5ghz on Air Bud!! But you can hit 4.5ghz on air!!
You would have to get Water Cooling & Idk if I saw anybody yet get over 4.8ghz that the far I saw so far on other people Pc
Here a link Check it out 5ghz but not sure if you can hit that on Air!!! Also Saw someone get 4.8ghz at 1.360v that pretty good but every pc is different so gotta move into small steps when doing this!!
With my chip, I'm thinking that 5 GHz should be fairly easy to achieve as it seems to be above average. I get an extra .1 Ghz than normal without changing voltages and my temps are only 60 degrees Celsius under 100% load.
So you got it at 5ghz?? I wasnt able to go over 4.7ghz last night I'm stuck at 4.7ghz right now at voltage 1.360v!! have you done a Overclock yet?? & what Programs are you using for Testing the Cpu Stressing it??
