[Solved] Need help! i7-3770k running toasty, can't overclock safely above 4GHz

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
This is my first post on overclock.net! I'm so excited to be a new member of this forum. smile.gif

Anyways, I'm trying to overclock an i7-3770k that I recently purchased for a custom built rig (~10 days ago).

When overclocked to 4GHz on stock voltage with IntelBurnTest by AgentGOD running, my temperatures get as high as 95C. Ambient temperature is roughly 28C. Idle temperatures are 38C.

Here's a list of my parts:

Intel Core i7-3770K
ASUS P8Z77-V PRO/Thunderbolt
Corsair 16GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz
Cooler Master TPC 812 CPU Heatsink
Crucial M4 SSD 256GB
Sony SATA 24X DVD Burner
Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 850W
Corsair Vengeance Series C70
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Core 1280MB

Use Prime 95 not IBT, temperatures are always higher on IBT. What voltage do you have set in BIOS, also for future posts fill out the Rigbuilder in the top right of the page.

I said in the first post, stock voltage.

I missed that, are you using Real Temp to monitor temperatures? Go to the Sandy Stable Club, follow a guide then come back if the results are the same

Interesting, it appears that it's just IBT that's making the temperatures seem unusual. Prime95 yields perfectly normal temperatures.

What are your load temps? Mine idles at 35C on a warm day, 34 on a cool day. I never go past 65C in Prime95.

On stock settings, very similar to yours on Prime95. I just ran it for ten minutes and max in Real Temp GT was 67C. Ambient is 27C.

I'm assuming I should ditch IntelBurnTest and stick with Prime95.

Yes you should. Prime95 allows RAM mixing too, so it intensifies the testing further. Your temps are fine.

Make sure your using the latest build with AVX.

Also, make sure your enabling both error checking methods each time you launch it, and setting max memory to ~80% of your memory (Select blend to get the presets, then select custom and set max memory). Your temps shouldn't really be THAT much lower with the new Prime95. IBT vs the new Prime95 is only 2C for me. Wait until 8k FFTs, and you'll see the temps skyrocket. It's the second test that Prime95 Blend does.

10 minutes is not enough time to reach 8k FFTs assuming you ran blend. If your 3770k is anything like mine, 65C during 1024k FFT would result in about 90C during 8k FFTs. I fear you will find your processor getting much hotter if you let it go for ~20 minutes. You can also just do a custom test and set it to 8k FFT to see your maximum temps.

Not exceeding 65C in P95 on a 3770k is absurd, no offense. Push that thing further... that's WAY colder than stock cooler runs them with stock voltage. These can easily go up to 90C without damage, gaming load will be much less too.

^^ You should let it go to about 80 on Prime 95 and you will probably never see it go that high in real life load.
