i5-3570k Overclock question big help needed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys smile.gif I was just wondering if my CPU is "good chip" or bad :
4.5GHz @ Offset +0.005V =1.240V Stable (150 IBT passed,12 hours prime95)
4.8GHz @ Fixed 1.35V =Stable (8 hours prime(had to go to school) 10 IBT tests) I coudn't run more IBT tests because of the temps.I have bad airflowed case and my temps were around 95 at IBT and i got scared so i turned it off.Is my chip good,decent or bad?
I haven't tried stability at 4.8GHz @ 1.3V but it boots up and play BF3 for 3-4 hours straight well.
P.S. In prime,i use custom preset 8K
4.8GHz - http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2559262
4.5GHz - http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2523477
P.S. 1.18V is also enought for 4.5Ghz but i prefer using offset
P.S.2 What offset would you guys propose me to try with so i can make it to be the same as 1.35V fixed.At +0.015V it did not boot so i stopped trying offset
PS.3 In prime,temps are always under 80 degrees,max 85 on the second core!
PS.4 For how much fixed voltage should i shoot if i try to get 5.000GHz just for the sake of saying i had my CPU at 5GHz biggrin.gif

well i have the same chip and i only use offset so i can take advantage of saving money on my electric bill. but i had mine at 4.5ghz at 1.27v max, but my mobo using a combo of offset,llc and vcore to set voltages so its a little more tricky.

anyway at 4.5 i got into the 85c marker which i feel is to high but many say upto 90 is ok especially since intel burn test works your cpu way harder than anything else you do daily will.

but i went with 1.168v @4.2 stable and just left it at than which is what my bios boots the stock vcore at and my temps don't even hit 68c with 50 IBT runs

so based on your voltages i would say your have a good chip most get 1.2v for 4.5ghz, but most also don't use a fixed voltage becuase that automatically turns off your power saving
