Really Need Your Help Please!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I m trying to overclock my 5820k, I am able to get 4.3Ghz at 1.3V, but the problem is that it reaches temp of Max 95 degrees using Prime95.

So for my first question, is 95 degrees too high I assume?

For my Second question, when I use Asus RealBench, it only gets to around 65 degrees with of course 100% CPU usage, so why is it so drastically different?? Which one do I trust??


I would greatly appreciate any help you guys can offer!




My Basic Specs:
5820k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Asus X99-A
16gb Corsair 2800Mhz OC to 3000Mhz
850Watt evga PSU

To better help answer your question, most people will want to know what you are using to cool your chip, as that should give an idea as far as ballpark cooling is concerned.

I would say though that the prevailing opinion of late is that prime 95 tends to tax the newer intel cpu's to the extreme and isn't as highly regarded for stability tests; hence the huge discrepancy in temps. Essentially, prime 95 is putting way more stress on your chip than you will ever see in your day to day use. Im sure someone more knowledgeable than me will be able to offer a good alternative.

Yes good point, I am running the Hyper 212 EVO...Thanks!

A hyper 212 isn't enough for a -E type processor.

You would want to go for the higher end of Noctua and the like.

You would want to trust prime as that puts 100% load and stresses the processor all the way.

You really should get a better cooler.
The NH-D15S is a very good option.

Yea but I am not eager on blowing $100 on a cooler for a few .Ghz more, but thought I would try and juice as much as I can with the EVO.

So hear that Prime95 gives incorrect readings, and hear that Asus bench is much more accurate and up to date, do you guys disagree??

Trust Prime95 + Open hardware monitor or realtemp. Don't trust anything by Asus (Software wise)

I would use OCCT.

Prime95 does not really work all that well anymore.

Also, the hyper 212 will probably only give you 4.0-4.2 ghz. You basically want to stay pretty close to 1.3v. Any higher and you are going to have issues.

Plus 4 ghz flat is PLENTY for games. Pretty much anything more than 3.5 ghz is just fine for gaming.

See when I run the bench with OCCT or Asus RB and AIDA64, I get around 60 degrees when pushed to 4.2Ghz....I can in fact run 4.5Ghz with Prime95 1.3V Stable but high temps, so I'm wondering if I should trust those readings now that I'm hearing Prime95 basically pushes too hard or something like that.
