Please Review My OC - I5 3570K

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just gave my first shot at OCing my computer, and just wanted somebody to take a look to make sure everything I did is correct, and if I could possibly make it better.

I5 3570K - OCed to 4.2 @ 1.14
Asus P8Z77-I
Crucial Vengeance 8GB (Low Profile, 9,9,9,24,2T, 1.5V)
Gigabyte GTX 670 (2GB)
SG08
600W PSU
Noctua C12P Cooler

I was able to OC to 4.2GHz, ran Prime for about 14hrs with no errors with a voltage set at 1.14. My temps top out at around 65C during this process. I tried OCing at 4.4 but found the temps to be in the low 70s range which I was a little uncomfortable with. Before I did my own OCing, I had turbo enacted and the board would OC to 4.2 but my temps would be in the high 60's, low 70's. Since doing the OC my self my temps while playing BF3 remain in the mid 50's which I am happy with.

My only concern is that since doing my OC, at idle use my temps seem to be about 5 - 7 degrees higher than before, what could be the cause of this?

Low seventies celsius is fine for these Ivy Bridge CPUs. Your idle will go up a little, since you upped the voltage. Looks like you have speedstep enabled though, because CPU-Z is showing only 1600Mhz.
