I asked earlier about my 4670k @ 4.6ghz/1.253v hitting 86c peak in prime95. Helpful person told me prime95 produces unrealistic temps.
So I queued up some 1080p encodes, which I'm pretty sure is the most demanding thing I do on a pc cpu wise. Cpu usage is at 100%. Temp has not gone above 60c after more than 24 hours of straight encoding.
Can I rest assured this oc is fine for my system and I don't need to go down to 4.4 or so? Or should I still run an alternate synthetic benchmark?
I would def keep it where it is. Screw Prime! Who uses this...really?! Nice clocks/volts too!
I was stable in X264 in the 50 run and crashed in BF4.
