Target Temp for i5k?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
1st time OC on an mITX board (not capable of voltage adjustment). I've increased the multiplier to 38. CPU target temp is currently 50c. It's been suggested that I bump target temp up to 65 or 70C and I wanted to confirm if this is a good idea.

I wouldn't let your load temps get too much over 70, Personally I don't like mine getting above 65ish

So do you have your BIOS CPU target temps set to 65 then?

I don't know what the actual core/CPU temp is spec'd out to tolerate by intel, but their Tcase is 72C.

I'm not one of the many who feel that unless you're achieving the absolute lowest temperatures humanly possible that you're damaging your CPU. CPU's are VERY tolerant to temperatures. You could theoretically run your CPU at 72C and not reduce the usable lifetime of it.

That being said, run what you're comfortable running.

Are you talking temps under load of are these your idle temps?
post #6 of 12
aslong as P95 load test using small ftts is under 80c your sweet (that will put you at about 65-70 max gaming)

This is basically why I was asking if these were idle or load temps.

Idle core temps are ~40C.

P95 Small ftts core temps are ~70C (I'm not sure how long to let this test run)

a few minutes say 4-10 tests..will show what the max temps will be..or a couple of intel burn test runs..but ibt heats up more,somehow..neither are indicative of real-world..for that..i'd do 2 32m hyper-pi runs..intel says max temp=72c

My board is very basic and all I really have to work with are multipliers. So I could keep upping those and running hyper-pi and as long as it's stable and <72C I assume I'm good to go?
