i5-3570k 4.6Ghz Help/Questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So basically I was able to get my overclock to a 4.6ghz constant, at 1.244-1.350v constant when i put my offset volts up to like 1.175v or so ( is that too much?) My tempts are around 31-45C so I was thinking that's decent.

First off, I was wondering if this is a good overclock or not.

Secondly, before I overclocked to 4.6Ghz, it was going back to 1.6Ghz when idle or not running big programs. When I clocked it to 4.6Ghz it just became 4.6Ghz constant even when idle so did i do something wrong?

You may have disabled C1E and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology.  These do not need to be disabled for overclocking unless you begin adjusting the BCLK.

 

This is all I am able to respond to.

What program are you using to monitor the temp?

I use CPUID HW Monitor and CoreTemp from time to time, but mostly the first one.

I asked because those are really low for the 1.350v you mentioned, how are you cooling it?
and did you mess with the tj max setting?

31-45c look like my idle temps, and its around the same voltage. It only spikes to 45c when somethings going on but for the most part i idle at 36-39c

OP, what board are you using?

4.6Ghz is an excellent clock speed for the 3570K, btw.
