Ok temps for mild OC for my 2600K?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just playing around with some very mild OC. I have a HAF-X case with a Gigabyte UD7-B3 and an I7-2600K cooled by a Corsair H60 with AP-15's in push/pull as intake.

All I did was bump the multiplier to 40 with no change in voltage.

Disabled:
Limit CPUID Max
C1E Support
Spread Spectrum
C3/C6
EIST
CPU Thermal Monitor

Enabled:
Internall PLL Overvoltage
Intel Virtualization

I ran both Prime 95 at the same time as 2 full runs of SuperPi 32 M. Test ran maybe about 45 minutes. My max temps on all 4 cores (using AIDA64 and Real Temp ranged fro 54C to 62C). AIDA64 reported my voltage core at 1.248.

Does this seem reasonable with ambient temps at 24C?

Did I overlook/forget anything glaring or important? I may play with bumping more but 4 GHZ is fine for now.

Yea those temps are fine when you priming it

Another question (sorry - I searched but didnt quite find a definitive answer).

I ran prime blend for an hour straight just to be sure. All tests passed and my temps on my hottest core never passed 60C.

My question: using AIDA64, my Voltage sat at 1.248 during Prime, but at idle it was (and currently is) at 1.308. I know why it dropped (vdroop) during prime (TDP?). Should I manually set the voltage to a lower value or just leave it as is? I know if I decide to push the OC beyond its current mild setting I would likely have to adjust more, but if I leave it at 40x multiplier, do I need to do anything else?

First off, nice motherboard.

Your temps are fine.

If you absolutely want to keep it under 1.3v for whatever reason (I've been running 1.45v 24/7 for 5 months with no degradation, but I can't recommend anything over 1.4v) you can probably squeeze more OC out of that particular core voltage value of 1.25v.

Mine can do 4.2ghz at 1.2v, although each chip is different. Considering you have 3 video cards I would try getting the CPU to 4.5ghz to see if it gives your video cards some more breathing room in 3d apps. I don't wanna say the word, but you know what I'm talking about =P

Keep temps under 80c
Keep voltage under 1.4v

How I would go about it if I were you is to use Fixed Voltage, enable LLC to prevent high idle voltage, set volts to 1.3v (as reported by CPU-Z under load) and clocks to 4.5v prime blend it for 1-3 hours, if it passes raise it to 4.6 and so on. 12 hour blend to finalize an OC.
