Safe settings to use with an i5-3570k w/o testing - Page 2

Well, I'm the kind of person to throw everything together and pray it works, instead of actually putting time and effort into doing things right wink.gif

I am too. I learned the hard way that overclocking is not one of the things that you can skimp on effort with. You either live with stock settings. (which is just as good really) or you put in the effort and simply monitor your PC to make sure it doesn't blow up or melt tongue.gif

I have killed several BIOS chips, a mobo, and set not one but 2 cards on fire (and yes, I do mean actual fire) by just lazily overclocking things. Of course I also think that has something to do with my terrible luck rolleyes.gif

If anything breaks I'm RMAing it. Not my problem.

Sorry, but too many things could go wrong. Just because an OC will work for 99.9999999% of people does NOT mean it will work for the OP. I know of a guy on OCC that was REALLY unlucky and can't even hit 4ghz on his i7 3770K. My chip like I mentioned would go ballistic and melt with what you suggested.

I would much rather force the OP to run prime 95 over night with almost no effort, than to feel bad for him when he looses a bunch of work to a BSOD.

@OP: You want Hardware monitor (made by the same people as CPU-Z) and prime 95. thumb.gif

Well of course, but if we are playing that game, your oc which you think is stable could go unstable tomorrow. Instead of playing this hypothetical game, I am giving him what he asked for, oc settings that generally work.

Ur, definitely not the best Idea there....
I actually felt this warranted a post but anyway, what motherboard you do you currently have? Most z77s have those...'easy oc' buttons or settings. I most of the time would say avoid any of that as some use a bit to much voltage, but in your case it might be best.

Honestly from what your saying I'd like to even suggest against OCing at all? But In all honesty it isn't hard to run a few IBTs (Intel Burn in Tests) to check for quick stability and to plug in a few numbers, I'm sure you would do fine just read a few guides and get to it. Why are you going to take the 'risk' of going in all brash on something you spent a minimum of 300$ on? Maybe get to running some p95 to test further. Realtemp even comes packaged with a nice pairing (In conjunction with p95) utility now.

( Also, my first post on OCN D: )

I tried auto voltage once.

4.5ghz put me at 1.45v on load


Never again will I press the auto button.

I ended up throwing the following #s into the bios:

Multiplier: 45
Voltage: 1.25

Load temps are around 60 - 70C depending on core.

Tested for 5 minutes.

I think that's good so I'll call it a day.

You might wanna actually stress test the cpu as apposed to guessing if your not planning on seeing a recurring blue screen of death.

I tested for 5 mins.

If it crashes I'll change the settings.

lol 5 mins test wont prove anything remotely stable.
