I5 3570K OC Advice

I'm new to overclocking and I have looked at some tutorials and these were my results. I'm wondering if this is good or not. I use a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO with 1 fan. Probably gonna get another fan for push/pull config to get temps lower.

OC: 4.0Ghz
Core Voltage: 1.144-1.152v
Core Offset: -0.075v
LLC: Level 5

Core Temp 1.0 RC4
Core #0 - MIN: 36c - MAX 72c
Core #1 - MIN: 38c - MAX 78c
Core #2 - MIN: 34c - MAX 72c
Core #3 - MIN: 41c - MAX 76c

Prime95: Passes the 1 hour stress test with no problems at all. I'll stress test it longer when I have more time.

  1. OCing the 3570 is a breeze. You don't have to do what you already did. Just go to your bio and increase the clock to 4.0 and Core voltage, you can leave it at auto or adjust it to 1.15-1.2 and that's it. The temps that you have are fine but I would get another fan to do push pull so the hot air is taken out much faster.

    So just set the Multiplier to 40X and leave bus at 100mhz. When you say set the core voltage do you mean 1.15-1.2 fixed voltage? I went with the offset voltage so that it wont always be at 4.0ghz. So it will only be 4.0ghz when it needs to be.
  3. New settings stable
    41X @ 100Mhz BCLK
    Offset: -0.100
    LLC: Level 3
    Temps: Idle 40c and Full Load 80c
