can i7 3770k hit ~4.5ghz with hyper 212 evo?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I will be upgrading my i7 920 to a 3770k. But still undecided which motherboard for a lower temp oc because i live in the philippines where i have high ambient temp about 30 celcius.

I currently have my cm hyper 212 evo and was wondering if how much voltage heat it would take to oc it to about 4.5-4.7ghz.

And also, tips on good best boards to oc. I wanna stay away from asus because i had asus board before and wanna try other boards. And would like good looking boards. smile.gif

Hey,

The 212EVO can easily cool the i7 3770k at 4.5ghz. It will be a little warm just because of your ambients, that can't be helped. As for mobos, I have been really happy with my Gigabyte, but it is X79 so I can't recommend it for your build. I had an Asus P8Z77-V in my old Raven build though and it overclocked my i7 3770k with ease, but I know you said you wanted to try something new.

Edit: One thing to consider with the 212 is just pick up 2 nice aftermarket fans so you can run it in push/pull. Will help a bit with the temps due to ambient.

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H
Amazing board for the money.If you have some more - get the UD5H.You'll be better off upgrading your cooler to H220 (Swiftech,liquid AIO) or NH-D14 (Noctua,air) ,PH-TC14P(Phanteks,air) rather than getting the UD5H instead of the UD3H.With such a high ambient,i really doubt the Hyper212 will be able to keep the temperatures under the safe limits.

So changing the fans with a push pull can yield better temps? What fans do you suggest? Like rpm, static pressure, something like yate loons, or the ap-15s?

Im looking at the z77 mpower from msi or ud5h or up4 from gigabyte. Any tips with mobos? Thanks.

You will be perfectly fine with 4.5. Mine is running the same config, and only at 1.24V. Just watch your voltages, as that will be the primary source of excessive heat. You'll be fine biggrin.gif

Wow thanks guys. Im really tight on budget and i'll upgrade my cooler if there's still extra money. But i really want to hit 4.5ghz. What speed do you guys think is the sweet spot for ocing i7 3770k in terms of performance gains?

4.3-4.5 will probably show the most improvement (4.1 or 4.2 isn't too far from the automatic Turbo Boost Mobo's due, which is 3.9). Go for gold and hit 4.5. I noticed such an improvement from stock settings, especially in applications and CPU-dependant games.

The corsair SP120 fans are great performers, plus they look real nice. They are made to blow through radiators or heatsinks, the SP stands for Static Presure. For only 4.5ghz the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H should be more than enough of a board. My Gigabyte board is the x79 version of the UP4 and it has been fantastic, I would hope that carried over into the Z77 version, but you probably don't need to spend that much money.
