Are these temps/voltage fine?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have i5-3570k @ 4.7Ghz using 1.288V.With an Asrock Motherboard so it would be around 1.31-2V real voltage.In prime95 i get temps from 70 to 80 degrees in small fft tests and in games,i get from 55 to 65C.I never fold and/or prime95/ibt so temps while gaming are what's important to me.I would really like to keep my temps around 55-60C in games,65C seems too much.I can't lower the voltage ,it's the lowest stable.Is around 65C for one core,others are around 60-62C fine for gaming 2-3 hours per day? In my "First build ever" rig you can see a picture of my setup.Is there anything i could do to drop 5-6 degrees? I don't have intake fan,one exhaust,80mm,no side fans.I'll soon get a new case though,Storm Enforcer.Will the new case drop the amount of degrees i would like to?
P.S. I will be keeping my CPU for around 3 years,would it degrade at this Vcore and temps?

The temps in game i reported are from BF3 too as it uses around 70-75% of my CPU.But in your thread,you said you don't care about degradation.The thing is,I CARE! I want to know if my voltage and temps are going to degrade my CPU.I know my voltage is decent but not sure about the temps...

my temp are the same in bf3, mine maybe a degree or 2 cooler. Im not scared about degrading at all in those temps, ive got almost 300 hours logged in bf3. My temps never go above that really, I don't do folding home or run high intensive programs, other then stress tests, which ive let sit at 95c for 2 hours straight on intelburn. I don't like to run it that hot, but this cpu is a beast. From my research, 70c is pretty normal for our cpus, unless you want to run down 300 htz and go for the 55c max under game and prolly not notice any difference in gaming.

In my experience,BF3 starts to feel really smooth at 4.7GHz and above.4.5Ghz doesn't feel that smooth for some reason.I stream a lot and render videos a lot too.4.7Ghz gives me significant boost.

Seems like you have a little more headroom for overclocking. Have you tried or are you more worried about temps now??? My own system, I wouldn't mind going faster and keeping it under 80c during bf3. That would mean I wouldn't be able to stress test because I would overheat. Myself am planning on delidding very soon. I would be happy with either outcome. Cooler temps at 4.7 or a higher overclock staying under 80c during bf3 or any game at that matter. I hope to keep my cpu 2 years, as long as I stay away from the stress testing, I should be alright.. lol, I just need to leave my pc alone, then no reason to benchmark and stress. So maybe once I delid, I will do my final rounds of testing, and call it a year, or 2, hopefully!!! LOL

When I upgraded my case, that really didn't drop my cpu temps, just everything else in there. Have you tried to lower your cpu LLC? I run mine on high on my board, there is still 2 more levels, each level is a noticeable difference under load. Im in the same boat as you, lower temps is always better, but I cant lower either LLC or cpu volts 1 step without crashing.

I'm well under 80c in games.I get usually around 60 in games,sometimes 65C,nothing more.

Your voltage and temps are both fine and won't cause any signficant degradation. I wouldn't worry about it, and I wouldn't spend much money trying to improve the situation (beyond a new fan for the cooler or something like that).

You can try lowering the CPU PLL voltage and the VCCSA voltage and see if that helps - they can usually be lowered a bit without sacrificing stability and can give slightly lower temps.

I have CPU PLL Overvoltage at auto and VCCSA voltage at auto too.I've hear some ppl underclock the iGPU for lower temps,how can I do that? I never use it but it isn't underclocked.And even if 4.7Ghz sound really nice,i think i found a sweet spot.It's not exactly that high,but it's 4.4GHz @ 1.096V-1.120V . 4.4Ghz is pretty respectable IMO,stable 30 runs IBT with custom 6gb ram stable,70 C max temp,in games-around 50-55C.I dunno if i'm going to stay on 4.4Ghz or 4.7Ghz but i honestly think neither would give me a boost considering my GPU.I play only BF3 and my experience in it isn't smooth at all.Jerky frames,even if they're above 60fps.So even if i OC to 5.00GHz(tried it already,too much voltage - 1.420V) my GPU is still my limit.Maybe until i get a new one i'll be on 4.4ghz and then when i get the new one,i'll put the CPU back to 4.7ghz so it isn't limited by the GPU.What do you think?

You likely won't see any difference between 4.4 and 4.7, so if you can run 4.4 with significantly lower voltages and temps I'd jus tleave it there. As you say, you know it'll run faster, so if you need the extra speed down the road you can easily bump it up.

If you aren't using the iGPU it should be off and power-gated, so underclocking it shouldn't have any effect.
