i5 3570K OC Temps

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i wanted to know if you think my recent overclock is capable for running 24/7.
So here are my Specs:

AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
Intel Core i5 3570K
EKL Alpenföhn K2

I'm goin' with 1,28V @ 4,5GHz.

My temps are at Idle around 28 to 31 Degrees Celsius, and after 16hours of Prime95 Blend Test about 65-71°C.
But in the "In-Place Large FFT's" Test they are at 86-90°C after only one hour...
So please help me, is this overclock capable of running 24/7 or should i back off my overclock a bit to prevent it from taking any damage?

The chip must not have a good contact with the IHS. My 3570k with the same cooler but different fans runs 5ghz@1.392v an maxs at 75c. you can try to add better fans or back off the oc. only other option is to remove the IHS.

I run mine at the same settings for a few months with the same temps as you but when summer came i had to go down to 4.2 Ghz because i wasnt comfortable with 80C gaming temps with ambient temp of 28-30C.

There is nothing in danger with running the way you are. The temps you get from Prime are not what you are going to generate in daily use unless all you do is run stress tests that create heat.

Some of us do use our computers at loads as high and even higher than when stress testing. For example when I'm rendering graphics my CPU is hyper-threading at 85-100% on all coors.. and as hot or hotter than when I'm stress testing. wink.gif
