How high should I overclock to?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Here's my CPU-Z Specs and SpeedFan specs, I would really like some help because I plan on overclocking tonight, all I ask for is the clock speed, if you want to help more you could post the BIOS settings

Note: I'm using a coolermaster 212 plus fan and not stock








With Prime95 for 15 mins it usually hits 60C

Considering this is Overclock.net, the right answer is as high as you can go.

Also, your CPU-Z pictures are pretty superfluous. It would have been more useful for you to add your rig in the User Control Panel.

here are couple of guides . . .

like Nick said, fill out your User CP. It would help others help you.

overclock as high as you can but dont EVER go over 85c on any core when full load stress testing.

ask yourself if you need the extra speed. if the answer's yes go as much as you can while maintaining temps below 80C(which is still too high IMO, I personally stay under 70C).

IMO under 85c whiles stressing thermal throttling at 95c or if ur man enough under 90c while stressing

^85c is the money

I agree. If you get 85C while stressing, then you probably won't break 75C while gaming.
