I5-3570k mods? Tags: CPUs Intel i5 Overclocking Product 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? m 0 l 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Now if isn't possible change the cooler. Do you really need/want overclock? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
