I5-3570k mods? Tags: CPUs Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: December 17, 2012 7:29 PM in Overclocking Share us11csalyer December 17, 2012 5:48:48 PM Why back when I had a Q6600 G0 stepping cpu I used the sandpaper and water to lap/lathe the cpu. It gave me 12c drop in temps. Was wondering if the same can be done to the 3570k?

What cooler/temps do you have? | Report abuse Reply to saint19 us11csalyer December 17, 2012 7:17:28 PM I see 52c max on the two games I play right now which are planetside 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 on stock settings with a H60 in push/pull config. The fan I added has like 79cfm. When I OCed the i5 to 4.2Ghz it was hitting 74c in prime95 64bit version. | Report abuse Reply to us11csalyer saint19 CPUs Master Overclocking Master December 17, 2012 7:29:41 PM Maybe a better cooler can solve that temps, the H60 was the 1st line in the sealed loops and currently the H80 and H100 are very good for the price and performs very well. Now if isn't possible change the cooler. Do you really need/want overclock? | Report abuse Reply to saint19 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>I5-3570k mods?> Related ressources: ForumI5-3570k ForumBest gaming motherboard for i5-3570k ForumI5-3470 vs i5-3570K ForumI7-2600k or i5-3570K and general performance ForumWhich one for i5-3570k ?
