I believe I just used whatever thermal paste came with the 212. I'm pretty sure it is properly installed, the only thing I can think of is I may have put on too much thermal paste, would that account for high temps? I don't have the best ventilation, but its not horrible in the case. I wouldn't guess something like that is the cause of temps that high but I can always run a test with the side panel off if its not the cooler's fault or anything.

As far as you saying you didn't change the turbo voltage, I was just following this guide by raising turbo instead of offset so I don't know if that comes into play here or not.

This is about updating my BIOS. The only available option for me is "Instant Flash", I don't have a floppy drive so the only way I can update is either through a USB Flash Drive and/or a hard disk drive, all in FAT32 format.

Does it really have to be in FAT32 format?

Use the Windows Installer.

If you haven't installed Windows yet, install it and then update. Just don't overclock before you update because it will erase all your settings.


Reading fail.

Not sure why there is no Windows.

Just in case, try doing it without formating to FAT32.

I'm betting, though, you will need to copy the contents of the flashdrive to your harddrive. Then format it to FAT32 and place the files on it.

OK thanks to last post telling me to only up the TV and watch voltage here I am.

Sitting at 4.8 temps around 80c but i've heard of people hitting 100c with ivy is that true?

I want to go higher, I still have room to push or is this it?

that is only a 10 min run, wait till the small fft's start burning(4K/8K) and your temps will jump 5-10C.
till what point your comfortable with it is up to you, i wouldnt want to hit 90+C in prime though.

Run IntelBurnTest to really know how high the temps can go.

Yeah Just more of doing this to see how high I can get then backing it down, not planing on running it this high.

Its funny you say that because I always run that first to see how stable it is. It didn't get as hot as prime though.

I should be OK going higher voltage though right? Stay under 1.55 I think correct?

Well finally got my 3570k stable at 4.6ghz. No matter what voltage or bios settings I used, I did could not pass Prime more than a few hours at 4.7ghz, and didn't wish to increase voltage more than 1.35 so gave up.

4.6ghz
Cooling: H80
1.336V
Temps never hit 90c.

1.6ghz idles at 1.05 volts most of the time. Idle temp is ~22-23 ish.

Is the voltage a bit much, or does it not matter because the temps are under 90c? I see a lot of 4.5ghz+ overclocks by people running ~1.25's...maybe my chip is a dud. I realize these can survive to 105c but not comfortable pushing it harder.

Lucky you. I have been siting on +.150 offset at LLC level 1 and I had to raise mine vcore. I'm at close to 1.41 vcore. Idle temps are great but load temps aren't anything to brag about.
