OC Temps i5 3570k

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. So previously, I made a thread stating that my load temperatures at stock were at 61 degrees and etc.
I was told to reapply thermal paste as I have a direct touch CPU ( Cooler Master Hyper 212+)

I was waiting for my thermal paste so I decided to go into bios and see what the voltage settings were.


My PLL voltage was set to 1.8v
and PLL overvoltage was on.


I disabled PLL overvoltage and set CPU PPL voltage to 1.5

My temperatures decreased drastically.

I now get 66 degrees with 4.2 OC with a -0.7v Offset with the PLL settings above




I now get 51 degrees with 3.4 (stock) a -0.1v Offset with the PLL settings above.




1. Will the PLL settings that I did above damage my cpu? like..are they good?
2. Are these temperatures good? I dont want my CPU to heat up a lot
3. What are the chances my CPU will actually get this hot (max heat large FFT test)


Thank you

It seems a lot of people drop their PLL voltage to 1.5-1.6v. As long as you are stable, youre good to go.
Your temps are fine.
Your CPU will not hit temps like it does while stress testing. Even gaming you wont get within 10 degrees probably.

Yesss I was worried about removing heatsink/applying thermal paste as I would have to basically take out my motherboard, etc etc.

Thanks again (:

Is prime 95 fine or do I need to get intel burn test also?

If you drop it too low, it'll BSOD, never heard of it doing damage. Temps are good. thumb.gif

Its preference really. Ive always used IBT because I hated having to wait 10 hours between tweaks. P95 has just been mainstream for longer so its the accepted standard.

I tried using IBT and i keep getting error about linpack library not functioning or something. I downloaded it through softpedia.


Also, thanks nooboc2012, what is considered too low though? I'm only going up to 4.2 ghz OC

Thank you so much guys (: really appreciate the help

EDIT:!

Ok so I ran IBT.



Maximum Test.

Temperature reached a max of 67 degrees but seemed stable. Is that okay? Also, I noticed on HWMonitor, my motherboard temperature was 66 degrees also. Is that ok? This is my first build so I'm not sure how temperatures are supposed to be. Thank you.

My offset right now is at -0.085, should I push it even more, for lower voltage and thus cooler temps? thanks

Those temps look fine, and you don't need to worry about the motherboard temp, but the GFlops on IBT seems really low. Do you have Win 7 SP2 installed? You should be closer to 100 GFlops at 4.2. You might try uninstalling/deleting IBT and reinstalling it - it may not have correctly installed the new Linpack libraries. With that voltage at 4.2 you should be able to push the overclock up to 4.5 or so without too much trouble.

I don't have SP2 installed. I'll try and run it once again once I have it installed. Gflops , the higher the better? Is this Gflops thing a big issue? Also, I don't want to OC too much because I don't want my CPU to give out in like 2 years.
However, since this is stable, do you think I should offset even more, to lower the voltage?
