Sorry for all the questions, just new to this overclocking thing. Thanks!

Looking good, are you running an aftermarket cooler? or have you got really good airflow?
Mine is close to 80c on the stock cooler at those volts while stressed.

I'm going to be moving my videos to my server for uploading, that way If my computer has any downtime the upload will be unaffected.

Apologies for the small OSD for MSI Afterburner, it should be visible 720-1080p if you have the bandwidth.
I've made it larger for my next videos so it should be a lot more visible.

I'll be uploading my Sleeping Dogs footage alongside Just Cause 2 and FFX.
Sleeping Dogs had weird hanging occurring every couple of seconds even with its frame-rate pushing 50+, does anyone know why?
I'm uploading a video to demonstrate this.

what other games are you planning on testing?
post #108 of 4581
Consider "safe" to be 90% the contribution of voltage(s) only. There is some small contribution from temps, but those are Intel-restricted, the chip itself will just shutdown/downclock on its own whatever the settings after a point.

That means for haswell you can be "relatively very safe" up to 1.3v core, "safe...ish" up to 1.35v (degradation has been reported), then at 1.4v and up you start getting very risky.

If you don't care about money, I'd say go up to 1.4v or 1.45v. If you must keep it alive, 1.3v or 1.35v. If must not even degrade it for 1-2 years at least, maybe up to 1.3v.

I'm doing Just Cause 2 MP right now, I think I'll give Max Payne 3 a shot, Skyrim and Assetto Corsa, when I ran Assetto Corsa with 17 other cars at 4GHz it was performing similar to my Phenom II, I'm not sure if the 400mhz I gave it recently will help it much, 17 car might be too much for this game, but I think It'll perform fine with 7 other cars on the track, even my Phenom II X4 B55 couldn't handle 17 cars on Magione and they performed pretty similar, it is in Alpha currently so optimizations in the future will hopefully help it out, I'm unsure of how it runs on beefier CPUs such as the i5 or i7.

I'm currently uploading a PCSX2 - FFX video of the intro and I have Civilization 5 but I'm not sure of the best way to bench/test it, I have War Thunder but I've never played it so I might try that and pull my Natural Section 2 from my backup.

Thanks it looks like that game engine is optimized for 8 cores... Anyway do you like this game?
