I really hope that my custom loop is enough to keep temps under control. Thanks for the help!
post #6702 of 9565
Before trying to get my cpu 4.7 stable I thought I wouldn't be close to 1.3 volts. While I was expecting a jump in vcore needed. I didn't anticipate the jump to be so big. So let me reevaluate what I said before.

I believe your custom loop will be able to keep your temps well within check compared to mine at the same volt usage, tho I have no experience with custom loops, and you will have to pay more of a heed to how much volts your cpu needs compared to someone who doesn't use a custom loop.

Damn, sounds like you won the silicon lottery. 4.7 under 1.3 sounds great to me, I would be popping the top on that one and gaining 15c in cooling. tongue.gif

I have never delidded before so I don't want to risk killing my cpu just yet. Maybe sometime in the future after I practice on some cheaper chips.

I believe I might be able to reach 4.8, but for right now I have gone back down to 4.5 and started experimenting with using a negative offset.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, just watch some videos

Hey,

I never done serious overclocking but now I would like to get the most out of my Rig. I followed the guide a few weeks ago and got my i5-3570k to 4,6GHz @ 1.312v. It didn't run 100% stable but it was OK for me. The errors I got were the following:

BSOD 0x50
BSOD 0x0A
World of Warcraft freezing -> crash to desktop -> clicking on the taskbar icon (still running) -> opens but "has stopped working" error
Some crashes when Flashplayer is active

Now I want to get rid of those.
I think they are all related to the RAM so I read the guide again and adjusted some BIOS settings. For the moment it runs fine and I need to test the stability of games in the following days.

I would appreciate if somebody could have a look over my BIOS settings:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Here is a screen of CPU-Z and HWMonitor after 25 minutes custom Prime95 test:


My Rig should be in the signature if everything has worked properly smile.gif

edit:// another problem I encounter is that sometimes my PC won't start at the first try. Following situations I can get:

- Turn on -> Black screen "No Signal" -> PC turns off and after 2 seconds on again -> Boots normally
- Turn on -> 5 short beeps -> PC turns off and on again -> 5 beeps -> and so on (loop) | I need to turn off the power switch from the psu, wait some seconds, and then it boots on the first try

Im not sure if this is overclocking related or not? :/

Signed up to say thank you for this thread! I'm pretty much a newb to overclocking, my only prior overclock was a 3.06GHz Q6600 LOL! This guide really helped!

My settings are pretty much same as what was instructed on the OP, with the Additional Turbo Voltage all the way up to 0.070v to keep it stable through the 24 hour test.

Additional Turbo Voltage at 0.012V can get 4.6 to boot up, but fails at the prime test.

Additional Turbo Voltage at 0.016V can get 4.6 to boot up and run the prime test for 5 minutes, but fails after around an hour.

Additional Turbo Voltage at 0.020V to 0.066V boots up and fails at prime test anywhere from 1-8 hours in.

Additional Turbo Voltage at 0.070V has been 100% error free. I was even using my PC during this time - just light tasks like emails, streaming, surfing, etc.



Room temp range from 22.8C to 24.6C.

Surprisingly, the top fan slots on my Fractal Design Define R4 (window) did not make a difference on peak temps.

My current fan setup:
HSF - Noctua NH-D14
Front Intake - Noctua NF-A14 FLX
Front Intake - Noctua NF-A14 FLX
Bottom Intake - Noctua NF-A15 PWM
Side Exhaust - Noctua NF-A15 PWM

The two stock Fractal Design fans were on the top exhaust slots during the stress test, but the peak temp on Core#2 still hit 87. I have since taken it off.

What is that TMPIN3 reading?

I wonder what kind of heat it would generate under Intel Burn Test.

Maybe upload that pic, it doesn't expand when you click it.

Thanks for the guide. Finally got the nerve up to OC my 3570K after getting a new H100i cooler. Now have it running stable at 4.7GHz with 1.272v. Very happy with that.

Ok, 1.288V ... not quite as stable as I thought.
