What's the sweet spot for a 3770K overclock? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I found that 4.5 is the sweet spot for my chip's stability, voltage and temps. 4.6 looked good at first but 12 hours into stress testing my rig went lights out...had to reset my PSU.
I didn't much like having the voltage and temps that high either (personal preference). 4.7 was not stable and I wasn't going to pursue it after seeing resulting voltage and temps. I'm pretty sure I could have achieved a stable 4.6 if I played with it for a bit longer but there wouldn't have been that much of a performance gain.

I am trying to push 4.6 and I am having a ton of trouble. Even at 1.4 I get a BSOD.... Should I just stick to 4.5 @1.32 V or is there any possible way to hit 4.6? I have Noctua cooling at this point, and running prime for 25 hours I hit temps around 80-85 C. Any suggestions?
