i noticed there being basically two walls that prevents 4.7+
1. begin the regular vcore wall and efficiency
2. dat dam cheap thermal paste item used. we should only be getting 10c lower under full load.
i wonder if the stock heatsink is enought for stock settings..
wats your ambient temp? i would expect you would get better temps with a full WC
That does look pretty good for a 3570k, I only tried 1 x 3570k & didn't want another, both of my 3770k did the same frequencies with less voltage & they had HT enabled too.
Ivy may have a higher tjmax, I still dislike temps over 70° though.
