3570k
4.3GHz
1.235 vcore 1.216 in Windows
Lvl 4 load line calibration
33-35C idle
77C hottest core during the largest iterations in Prime95


How did I do? Some people say hot is normal, others say my temps are too high.

That is pretty good for the voltage vs temp on air, but you shouldn't need that much voltage to push 4.3ghz. 4.3ghz is attainable for some on stock voltage and like I said in the previous page, I am running a slight under voltage on my setup with a 4.2ghz OC stable in IBT.

Right now I was able to keep my 3770K @ 4.5 GHz with 1.3v

Temperatures stay within the mid-high 70's under full load.

Thinking of possibly delidding my CPU or changing my thermal paste to liquid metal (using cooler master paste)

NCSUZoSo is not too bad for the 212 and that voltage i use the same voltage as you in my OC with the Antec 620 i have 66ºc in Prime 95

Please, tell me, there is any difference between increasing LLC or increasing ATV? If my ATV set to AUTO and I need decrease my load voltage should I set lower LLC?

I've tried lower and it isn't stable.

Excellent guide! Overclocked my 2500k to 4.5 ghz with an average core voltage around 1.288 (under load) and temps at 60c

Thanks for the guide! So far I have gotten 4.6Ghz on my I5 3570K, with a Vcore of 1.312v-1.320v. I had to increase the Turbo boost Voltage to +0.45. Temps seem fine, usually sticking between high 60's to low 80's and maxing at 87C on the hottest core. Going at 40mins on prime95 and no issues so far, I'll keep an eye on it till it reaches an hour and then go to sleep and leave it going overnight..

Is the Voltage acceptable and safe for the clock speed? If everything is stable, do I have room to push further, or should I stick to 3.6ghz?

Again, thanks for the detailed guide.

What offset you using? I have the same processor and had issues with my Turbo voltage.

Yep I'm using offset mode. I started out adjusting the normal offset voltage but I wasn't getting much luck, so I swapped to adjusting the turbo boost offset and keeping the normal offset at +0.005v. To be exact I had to increase the Turbo boost voltage to +0.047v to get an one hour test to run smoothly at 4.6Ghz. I have Cpu load-line calibration set to level 2.

I left prime95 running overnight and it seems after an hour and 50 minutes, one core failed. No BSODs or anything, just a rounding error. Will this impact general use? Since it was almost double the recommended running time, should I leave it or try upping the voltage a tad more?

Edit: Upped turbo voltage to the next one up and 10 minutes into the prime test I was hitting a max temp of 88c. Decided to down the clock speed to 4.5Ghz and decrease voltage to decrease temperatures. I downed Turbo voltage to 0.035 and will continue to decrease it until I fail a 10 minute test, then will increase it slowly doing one hour tests until I reach a stable voltage. I'll probably do longer tests once I get a voltage that is stable for an hour
