Safe Temperature/Voltages?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I have recently overclocked my 3570k to 4.7ghz.

Specs:

Asus - p8z77 v-lx
CM - 625w psu
Asus - Gtx 560 TI o/c to 1050 core clock and 2247 memory clock
CM - Hyper 212 Evo
OZC - 128gb Agility 4 SSD
DDR3 8gb 1333mhz Ram

Standard case, probably 2 years old, running 3 fans.

So originally I was running my cpu at 1.31 voltage. I ran both prime tests for around 20-25 minutes each, and ran 3dmark11 to confirm stability. I then attempted to O/C my GPU, and after running 3dmark several times, It began to start crashing on the physics test. I then bumped my voltage up to 1.32, I thought it was running fine, I passed the 3dmark Physics benchmark, and the 1344 and 1792 prime test with max temp of 80 degrees.

After I thought I had finished stabilization my GPU/CPU, I started playing guild wars 2. Not long after playing, my game crashed. Error: c000005, not sure if this was due to CPU, or GPU.

I reloaded gw2, to see if it would do it again, After about 5 minutes I BSOD. x00000101 error.

I then bumped up my CPU voltage to 1.33 volts, I had been playing gw2 for around about 1 hour, until it crashed again. BSOD x101

I have just bumped my CPU voltage up to 1.34

At the moment the only settings I have changed in the bios are:

Manual voltage - 1.34
LLC - Ultra High

My question is, should I be changing any other settings? I don't know much about PLL (?) and offset voltage, I have read a little but it confuses me frown.gif

At the moment my CPU-Z is reading 1.352 V - 1.36 (bios is set as 1.34, I'm assuming this extra voltage is coming from the offset/pcl)

My CPU is currently idles at around 40 degrees, and peaked at 85 degrees (1 core at 85, rest under 80) during the torture test. I only hit 85 degrees when I first started the test, Haven't gone above 80 once I was a few minutes in

Am I running my CPU at a dangerous temperature ? (averages around 60 degrees during gameplay)
Am I running my CPU at a dangerous voltage ?

Are these 101 BSOD crashes due to lack of CPU voltage or GPU voltage, I have passed 3dmark11 several times with my GPU overclock, and have stopped crashing on the physics test.

Can anyone recommend any important settings changes that my o/c requires?

1.33 is a good voltage. I try to stay under 1.4, because over that, you will begin to have noticeable shortening in your CPUs lifespan. 80s seem a little high, but the 3570K has a high temp threshold. Overall, looks like a good OC.

I have had to bump it up to 1.34, I got bsod when playing gw2 (101)

Im going to run prime tests and 3dmark, to confirm the temps, I don't really want to push it much further, I am only running a CM hyper 212 evo, which isn't the worst cooler, but my case fans arnt the best, the case is around 2 years old

I hope you dont mind me jumping in on your thread imolate but i have a similar problem,

3570k OC to 4.5
Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H
8gb ram
560ti

VCore on auto
Clock ratio 45
base clock 100
CPU PLL 1.65

i OC'd using the first half of this video guide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxCPyF-1tTc

ran through prime95 for 20 min then over night, no errors, CPUz reading sub 80 temps, a few runs through furmark and i thought "that was easy"

i played about 4 hours of TF2 and assassin's creed revelations, all fine, temps rocking around 60... then

i find it crashes randomly while on the screen saver frown.gif

i find if i "alt and tab" out of TF2 when i go back into the game loads of stuff is offset or worse, i've been kicked from the MANN que i was in.

any help would be much appreciated

anyone... ? frown.gif

Do you guys use offset mode to control voltages? Because I would suggest trying manual mode. This means however that the voltage will not go down when the CPU downclockes, but maybe it fixes your problems.

I haven't set my offset to manual, mine is overclocked at 4.7 24/7, so the voltage never drops because it doesn't down clock, this doesn't bother me because my pc is only on at gaming, and it wouldn't down clock anyway. But the 1.36v for 4.7ghz is what worries me.

1.36v would be the max I would use if the computer was on 24/7 so I don't see why you would have problems. For your usage, I would try to stay under 1.4v.

nah i only run the computer for like 5 hours a day, on a big day, maybe 10 hours
