Overclocking My 3570k to 4.2ghz

Hi mates, I overclocked my i5 3570K to 4.2ghz, I only changed to 4.2ghz in the bios with auto voltage, saved & exit!

Running Prime 95 (Blend test) for 15 Hours till now, monitoring voltages by Cpu-Z and Temps by Real Temp GT 3.70

Voltages are between 1,014V - 1,116V

Temps are between 51-57C. Max. temp reached in 15 hours is 60C

Btw I m using the Hydro Series H60 2013 edition with pull config. for now! (upgrading to two SP120 High Perf. (push/pull config) later on

Are my voltages & temps good? Will push/pull config decreases temps?

Yes your voltage and temps are good.

You probably won't see much of an improvement in temps if you went for push/pull Vs just push or pull (maybe 1-2C better with the additional second fan) as the radiator is quite thin and a single SP120 high performance will be able to push air through the radiator very effectively on it's own.

I agree with in the above poster in that you won't see an advantage with push/pull. Maybe 1C, 2C at the very most. So I wouldn't go that route. Your temps and voltages look good to me though.
