i got my i5-3570k to run very stable with manageable temps at 4.6ghz with my vcore at 1.21v [is this voltage to high or too low?] running prime for over 6 hours and i have been running it that way for a few weeks with no blue screens no matter what i do. i want to push it a bit further and see how high i can go, i have a little bit more overhead with my all-in-one to push it, figured i might as well try
highest prime temp is 72c, i want to see how high i can go, ill probably stop when it gets past 80-85, i dont plan on keeping it high, just kind of curious because it seems like a lot of people are having trouble getting past 4.5. what voltage range should i be looking at for 4.7 or 4.8?
Do a step by step OC. Increase the multiplier, test using prime95 for 30mins. If it fails, increase the voltage and test again. Repeat until you get the clockspeed you want and then run prime95 for 12 hours. If it fails below 12 hours or you get some error, increase the voltage again.
ive been playing around 4.7 for 2 hours now, its been pretty buggy. the only stable config i have found is a really low voltage with an extreme load line profile. guess ill start raising the voltage because 1.7 is too low, figured id start low and get higher, itll blue screen on me without load line at extreme but its been doing prime for an hour how have it, time to step it up
Sounds like you got a nice chip, BUT - check your windows system Event Viewer for WHEA errors.
Don't mean to rain on your parade, but I thought I had a stable overclock with lower voltage until I checked that
will do, am i shooting for no errors? and if they do come up do i simply apply more voltage to stable it out? this is a tiring week for a tech nerd, im not even at CES but reading multiple sites about it and watching press events has me beat
