How Did I Do?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, I overclocked for the first time and I really don't know if these are good or not.

P95 v27.7 at almost nine hour blend:



IBT at 10 runs on max:



It was actually at 4.5 full load, but I took the screenshot a little to late after I exited IBT, but my max temps were 77-85-84-74 at 10 runs on max.

Turbo voltage is +0.004 and offset is +0.005. LLC is level 2. C1E enabled, C3, C6, and Package C disabled. PLL is at 1.832V on auto, but changing it to 1.75 reduced my temps about 3-4 degrees lower, but didn't take any screenshots.

How did I do?

I would say a nice overclock. Especially at that voltage

Just so there is no confusion: CPUZ reports 1.208v so I think it is decent. Not a golden chip, but I'd say I'm pretty happy.

That indeed is a pretty good chip. But I can see that it isn't dead yet so YOU SHOULD PUSH IT MORE! I'm pretty sure that your temps will allow going for 4.6

If you've got it stable you should consider enabling the C-states so the CPU can go into low-power mode. No sense keeping it running all the time.

I probably could, but I'll keep it at 4.5 for now. Once I feel comfortable, I'll move on.

Alright, will do. Thanks!

EDIT: I thought having the C States disabled meant it was running very little voltage?

How did I do?

Can you please tell me what kind of cpu cooler you are using?

I run the same cpu at similar settings under watercooling and I was not so happy with my temps. But comparing to yours they are pretty low. Under full load they don't overrise 60°C. But I still thought that would be really high. I'm not sure if these ivy-bridge cpus just produce that high temps that even a decent watercooling can't keep them at for example 40°C - 45°C under full load.

It's not easy to find some good information...

All in my signature. The beast NH-D14.

I'm considering delidding in the future. Too chicken to do it now.

Ivy-Bridge runs hot because of 3D Tri-Gate Transistors (technology that Ivy Bridge is built upon), and even under water cooling the chips will run hot. However, don't be scared of a hot running chip when it comes to ivy since they have a higher thermal limit and are generally meant to run hot - bit like the GTX 400 series. Running 70-80-90*C was the norm for those cards. My Zotac GTX 470 ran around 80*C.

nope, the ivy's run hot because the heat spreader is not directly soldered to the core but is rather sort of glued in which does not help in effective heat exchange.
