New To OCing Intel Cpus And Need Help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
RIG
Cpu : i5 4670k
CPU Cooler : WC
Thermal Paste : Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra 100% Metal Thermal Interface Material
Mobo : GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-D3H
Ram : G.Skill 8GB DDR3 2133 (9-11-10-24-1T)
Video Card : HD7950 with boost (Will add another one down the road)
HDD : Raid 0 2 Samsung 830 256gb SSD III and 2TB Samsung (Storage space)
Rom : Blu-ray burner
PSU : Antec 900watts
Case : Antec P280

Should be here around Friday 9/20/13.
I'm planning on delidding the CPU and I have some question here too. I know that a 900 watts PSU is overkill, so please don't comment on it.
Now for the questions.
1) 80c is the max safe temp for 24/7?
2) 1.35v should be the max for 24/7?
3) Is there anything else I need to know about ocing on Intel? I know to keep Uncore speed and ram speed around stock for starters.

Here is a starter point for you, It contains every info you ll need for haswell overclocking Haswell Overclocking Guide

But to answer you quickly:

1. For stability testing you can go higher like 90-95C max, but for everyday use i would say about 85C max
2. It depends on your cooling. With air cooling you might reach max temps even with lower vcore. You need either very good cooling or you need to delid your cpu. But if temps are low enough you can even run at 1.4v
3. Read the guide i posted, but yes, to find your max cpu overclock keep uncore at 35x and ram at 1333 or 1600 with 1.65v
