Is the voltage i'm using fine and safe? i5 3570k 3,4 ghz clocked @ghz

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been searching around and i'm not quite sure what the hell a good voltage is supposed to be for the i5 3570k, i remember reading a guide that recommended 1.25.

Screenshot attached below, i have it running @ 1.176 stable

Idle temps are around 24~27
The highest temperatures it reaches with prime95 is 59.. maybe 60~61 degrees Celsius but i gotta keep it running for quite some time. Is this fine?



Thank you guys

Limit is 1.4v (for an extreme overclock), so your volts are real good. Intel states 1.52v as upper limit. Look at my build log, in sig, for tips if you want to overclock some more.

It's a minor point, but Intel doesn't actually state that 1.52V is an upper limit. 1.52V is the highest value that exists on their VID table, which would imply that that is the highest value the CPU can ask for, but I've never seen anything where they came out and said whether that is a safe or unsafe voltage. People just saw that it was the highest value on the chart and ran with it, and Intel has been very vague about the whole thing. Unless you've seen anything official (besides the VID chart) from Intel that I missed?

if you are going to stay with that 4.0 overclock you should be able to get voltage to 1.0-1.12v most likely 1.12 for 4.0. the voltage you have it at now should get you to 42 most need about 1..15v for 4.2 but every chip is different your might need more or less. I would just go to 4.2 and keep voltage where it is at

They are fine and safe.

What the hell, stock cooler? Haha :-). Well then i guess that's awesome! I just now put it at 1.136v @ 4.2ghz. I'm very happy with this CPU as well. Running prime and @ full load the highest i've reached is 61c. It fluctuates mainly between 53 and 58. Loving it :-)

I had to back down to 4.1ghz at 1.136v it was prime stable. But it would crash while playing plant side 2 rolleyes.gif. Getting the evo 212 soon an going for 4.5ghz 24/7. Right now while gaming I never go over 60c. So for $35 I am hoping to pick up another 400mhz an be done. I dont see myself pushing this chip past 4.5ghz. Beside I think at 4.5ghz my vid card would be my bottle neck. I just have a XFX HD 7770. It works for now. Tax time thinking 7970.

Hugh! I just left home and I forgot to make a prime95 test before leaving. Haha! But 4.5gz with an aftermarket cooler sounds more than realistic with the i5 3570k. Great over locker. Is there any reason for me to push the 3570k beyond 4.2ghz? I mean. I felt 4ghz was great enough already it is just that I can't imagine getting more of a boost even with my oc 7950.
