i5-3570k OCing Expectations and Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I ordered my new i5 yesterday, and it'll arrive sometime tomorrow, but before that, I'd like to know a bit about what I can actually do. It'll be paired with a H80i.

What exactly do you mean? Are you looking for which graphics cards it can power efficiently (it can almost certainly run that 470 without any hiccups), which games it can play, how fast it can encode files? There are many performance benchmarks to compare it against other chips. Do you want to know how high you can OC it? Probably in the 4.5-5.0ghz range without turning your voltage up to anything crazy, assuming your cooling is adequate.

(edit: sorry, the title was self explanatory)

In terms of overclocks, you should be able to hit above 4.2 ghz with little trouble.

I hit 4.5GHz on mine very easy. Once i go to 4.6GzHz i have to ramp my V-Core up. Seems to be the wall for my chip. Every chip is different. Silicone Lottery.

You can expect to hit anywhere from 4.4 to 4.6GHz (Possibly higher if you are lucky thumb.gif) with any decent air or closed loop cooler such as the H80i by simply raising the core voltage and setting a more aggressive load line. Intel chips are extremely easy to overclock. Most chips will require a proper water cooling setup to go any higher.

I do have the closed loop H80i, and I know a friend who has her 2500k @ 4.4 on Air. SO, I was wondering if you guys had any specific settings? Something to start with, Volts and mutiplier.

Essentially, is it possible to have it at least at 5GHz?

prolly not without delidding it, temps will skyrocket if you try run 5.0ghz,
besides if your chip can run it vcore wise..
but most ivy's can run somewhere in the 4.5-4.7ghz with decent cooling,
mine couldnt even run ibt at 4.5ghz, without hitting 105C within seconds..

5GHz is something that can be done. But it's all up to the Chip. My 3570k can run 5GHz on my assassin cooler with good fans. But again it's all up to the Chip. Lots of chips need delidded to do that as mine doesn't. But with your h80 I would say 4.6GHz to 4.7 should be a easy goal.

thats very nice, do you have some pics or screenies running 5.0ghz with vcore, temps etc?
