i5 3570k 4.4ghz 1.26v hyper 212

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

After a 20min prime 95 temps @ 4.4ghz I hit about 65C. I used an offset mode of +0.04. I will do a longer test tomorrow but I just want to know if those temps are good. I need this CPU to last about 4-5 years. I am using a Hyper 212 with 2 fans in my case. So my questions are:

1. Will the CPU last about 4-5 years if I game about 2h and 6h of normal use a day?
2. Are the temps good?
3. Will getting another fan on my hyper 212 for push pull help?
4. Are there anything else I can do to reduce the temps

Hope u can help!

Thanks

1. Yes it will more than fine.
2. Yes, temps are fine up to 80C for daily usage.
3. Yes, but only by 1-2C more than likely...
4. No need to, but if you insist, either buy a better cooler or just be sure you have lots of fresh air coming into the case as well as sufficient exhaust.

Hi, I have limited experience with CPU overclocking, but I still feel confident enough to answer these questions:

1. Yep, it should do. Degradation of a CPU is always going to occur when any amount of voltage runs through it, but with a voltage of 1.26v, you are far from any increased rate of degradation which would reduce the lifespan of your CPU when compared against a fully stock CPU.
2. Temps look really nice.
3. It may lower temps slightly (2-3C).
4. A good aftermarket TIM will more than likely lower temps slightly (3-4C). Something like Arctic MX-4 is apparently a good, cheap, no-fuss solution.
