Tags: CPUs Chip Last response: January 4, 2013 2:10 AM in CPUs Share cheti January 4, 2013 12:19:43 AM Hey, got my new 3570k on a z77x-ud3h My cooler is hyper 212 evo with push/pull corasir sp120. I got my CPU at 4.5ghz on 1.25V Under load in p95 my temps are 70-75 on all 4 cores. Should i push the voltage higher and aim for 4.6-4.9ghz ? Afaik IB cpu's are not good overclockers but 4.5ghz seems sick for IB Discuss!
