Read this and tell me what im probably screwing up on my 3570k

I"m tryin to get past 4.5ghz and I know it's a mixture of my crappy cooler (H60) and my board (asrock pro4) but i mean, i've seen people with worse hit 4.6 and a couple even 4.7..perhaps this could be because they just drew a better chip than i, but that's the point of this thread I guess...is to see if there's anything I could be missing that would cause this. currently im at :

4.5ghz 1.28v
temps:
ITB HIGH stress level: max temp of 86c when the tdp jumps to like 200+ for a split second..other than that: high 50's to low 60'sc...

ive tried c states on and off but perhaps not in every single possible combination. i've tried adjusting vcore and turbo voltage, allcore vs manual core multiplier setting, i put 2x corsair sp120 hp edition fans on the h60. would an NH-D14 or a better VRM board help me more? or is it even possible to answer that one? thanks for the help in advance guys/ladies

    Excuse the above idiot. Reported him.

    Uhm ok well I think your main problem is the Pro4 board. BUT the NH-D14 will serve you better and its much cheaper than replacing the board.

    So if you really want better OCing and you are willing to take a chance spending some money. Start with a better cooler.(NH-D14).
  2. Chips are different in their maximum overclock.
    Take what you get that is stable and go on to something else.

    If you are a competitive overclocker, sell the chip and try a new one.
  3. Thanks moderators...
  4. Mine is stable at 4.6 with the Noctua mentioned above.
  5. well its not that i'm much of a competitive overclocker...i just feel like my current cooling and mb setup is really inadequate if i want to get the most out of the current chip I do have, so if i spent, say, the money to buy the cooler off ebay and then got the extreme4 board..which after reading more on and check into more, i i really really want now anyway, that i definitely wouldn't be disappointed and it could only help me as far as getting to 4.6-4.7...is that right?
  6. Some things i should have mentioned before: i can still take the pro4 board back and get the credit for it that i bought at microcenter and use that toward the extreme4 ..so it wouldnt be expensive really...and as far as the cooler, im guesring i should def go with the d14 over the h100? my case is the storm enforcer with 2x 200mm exhaust and the h60 as intake.
  7. extreme4 < very good board,i've put 2 together in the past couple of months.
