Not sure if I did this all right. 3570k @4.4ghz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am kind of new around here. Follow all of the guides I could find and watched videos pertaining specifically to my motherboard. I have never overclocked before except small 200 mhz bumps.

My hyper 212 EVO came in the mail today and I got it installed on my 3570k. I have a MSI z77a-g45 board. So far an hour into Prime 95, I am looking at about 70c max on one of my cores, but average about 63 degrees. I have my BIOS set to 4.4 ghz, 1.22 volts, C1E turned on, Turbo off, and Vdroop set to 100%.

Seeing how I have never done this before, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if these were good temps and volts to have. Plus, CPU-Z registers my voltage to at about 1.2 volts and HWMonitor has it varying from 1.196 to 1.216. I was wondering if this was VDrrop? I have included a screenshot of Prime95 after about an hour.

No, that's not vDroop. VDroop is simply the voltage drooping under full load, down from the idle voltage.

 

What voltage do you have set in the BIOS?

 

Also, what is the make and model of your PSU? It may seem irrelevant, but it's relevant.

PSU is OCZ-ZT750W, the voltage in my bios is 1.22 volts

Oh good, on both! The PSU is pretty decent, and the BIOS setting is higher than the actual voltage (in Windows), and that's a good thing.

 

The only question I would have is, if turbo mode should actually be enabled. What happens if you enable it? Do you know yet?

I didn't intend on using it, just never closed the widget. I could try if you really want me to wink.gif

Also, I don't know why, and maybe you might know, but not all of my system fans show up in HWMONITOR or SpeedFan. Only my CPUfan and two of the four I have plugged into my mobo show up. Any idea? I wanted to limit all the speed via my BIOS, but only those show up there as well. Since I am comfortable with 70C on prime 95, I know my gaming temps will be lower so I feel fine limiting their speed so that I can quiet them down.

The widget? I thought you were doing all of your overclocking in the BIOS.

I don't know actually. How many video cards do you have? If you only have 1, then you could go down to 2 or 3 case fans without any risk of overheating.
