Is this a wast for my build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


Do you guys think a 4.6 ghz 24/7 overclock is a wast for my build.

I am using -0.005 witch gives me 1.32v at load in cpu-z temps never go over
52c.

Know i now i can do 5ghz with + 0.080 with gives me 1.42v in cpu-z
temps hit 69c

It just i read so many post that say don,t go over 1.4v for 24/7 use
but is that for guys on air coolers.

So if you had my system would you run 4.6ghz 24/7 or 5ghz 24/7.

And i did notice a few things if i enable C3 and C6 i lose about 400 point in my 3dmark scores.
But there not much lose from 3dmark going from 4.6ghz to 5ghz
about 150 points.

with 4,6 my 3dmark11 is 11645 at 5ghz it,s 11805

With 1.42v and 69c at full stress i would say this is ok. But like you say it really does not make much difference in benchmarks and i very much doubt you can notice the difference in games.

I would stick with the 4.6ghz overclock for 24/7 use. reason being there's just no point in 5ghz for the extra heat and voltage required. sure its nice to see your at 5ghz but is it really worth it?. Also if you plan on keeping your cpu for many years this strengthens my point. If you plan on changing your cpu next year then 5ghz all the way

ok now what i don,t get is i see your at 1.42v is that that you set in the bios or is that what cpu-z shows at load.
and i would like to keep my cpu tell the next ones come out.
but like you said there no big preformace for 4.6 to 5ghz
i think it just to brag.
same as running prime for 12 hours i don.t think your cpu will hit that much stress
in every day use even gaming.
i think if you can pass 1 hour of prime95 and do 5 loops of 3dmark 11 . your good
i think 12 hours is just a wast.

I had my 2600k at 5ghz just with + 0.060 offset and ran it for a month
played games for 5 hours did video encoding.
all kinds of stuff ran grate but just to pass prime for 9 hours i had to go to + 0.090.

so to me just to run prime for 12 hours to brag is it worth the extra volts and heat
when you can run 5ghz at a lower offset and lest heat.

69C and 1.42V are nothing to worry about imo, if you want to run it then do, I wouldn't worry about the degradation, you can always run some benchmarks and see if the extra speed affects any games. You could also try pushing your memory harder instead and see if that speeds anything up too.
