How is my temperature & voltage (3770K @ 4.7GHz)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So after running my 3770K at stock (yeah I know, don't ask) for nearly a year. I decided to finally to get some extra performance out of it (especially with BF4 being seriously CPU hungry) and at the same time see how far I can push it (sensibly) before it's no longer stable.

I'm at 4.7GHz at the moment that's about as far as I'm comfortable going in this journey. Any further and I'll think I'm scared I'll be faced with a disaster lol.

I've been working on this all day, starting from 4.0GHz, and slowly incrementing the core and frequency, jumping into Windows and running a range of tests (e.g. Cinebench, IntelBurnTest and 1hour prime). It's now 2:51am, and I've made it to 4.7GHz and I've found the stable point of 1.288 voltage.

Temperatures as reported in HWMonitor (RealTemp was reporting the same values too) after running Prime
Min (idle) 30c / Max: 81c (with Arctic Silver 5 paste)

Is this voltage safe and is my temperature ok?

I've tried going lower than 1.288, but even a touch craps up in the first 5minutes of Prime. I should also mention I'm not using the best of coolers, it's just a standard Intel Liquid Cooler - I should probably replace this!

Anyway, enough of my ramblings.

Edit: should have listed the rest of the system

MB: MSI MPower Z77 (latest BIOS)
RAM: 16GB DDR3 2400MHz (standard XMP profile)
GPU: AMD R9 290X (x2)
PSU: Corsair 1200W
OS: Win 8.1 Pro 64bit

That's a very good clock, and temp is fine too. Intel burn test stresses the cpu far beyond any normal usage, so temp will be lower than 81c there. So keep it there and be happy smile.gif

Jealous of your chip, mine does 4.6ghz at 1.35v with roughly same temp using custom watercooling.

Glad to hear I'm in the clear smile.gif! Pity about your chip though!

If your stress test temperatures are 81, then under normal use you can expect the highest temps being in the mid to low 60s.

Great chip, thats a lot of clock for that low of a voltage thumb.gif

That's exactly my temps with my 3570k @4.7ghz at exactly the same voltage it's at. I'd say your more than ok.

Excellent!

not to be a downer guys but that one hour of prime only if you only lower it one notch and it fails prime, most likely you aren't 100% stable yet anyway where your at. but it is a good starting point. good luck to you.

Oh well. I'll leave it as it is for now, until I've had a session of gaming in BF4 and see how it handles there.
