Is this a good overclock?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have a 3570k, ASRock Z77 extreme 4
The voltage is set to 1.175 in BIOS
Ratio is on 4.4GHz
Currently running on blend test for over 15 minutes now (P95)
Cooler is CM Hyper 212 evo (Stock thermal paste) with 2 fans push/pull
Here are the temps and information.

Is it good enough? There wasn't any crashes yet, i'm probably going to leave it overnight to make sure its 100% stable, should I do that or is it fine. Around over 15 minutes of blend stress testing

That's low voltage! Your temps are fine with your cooling solution.

I am using Prime 95, I said that above. This is my first time overclocking so I just turned up the voltage and put the ratio on 4.4GHz in the BIOS, should I do anything else?

Agreed that's a pretty low voltage. And those temps are pushing it! Don't forget that those temps are for each individual core; when all added together your processor will be running about 10C more (as a single unit) than the average if each core.

Did you adjust any other voltages?

No, i just adjusted "fixed" voltage.
I might save up for a H100i since the fans are getting loud :/

I forgot that you mentioned that so I edited my reply. You are on the right track. If tte system isn't stable, just keep increasing the voltage until it is. If the temps go above 80C before getting stable, I would drop down to the last stable multiplier and voltage.

Ahh ok, yeah it doesn't look to shabby at all... But if you keep your CPU running hot like this it'll decrease lifespan so I do recommend a water cooling setup

70c peak hottest core is pretty damn freezing on ivy bridge

If you want quiet cooling, get high end air, like a thermalright hr-02 macho, nh-d14 or silver arrow; not a h100i. Closed loop liquid coolers are more expensive and significantly louder unless you replace the fans with your own

Just to add, water cooling has its caveats. Big air coolers are cheaper, equivalent in performance, but a little bulky. Just make sure to do some research with a budget in mind to get the best performance.
