Overclock my i5 4690K with CM TX3 cooler.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there. smile.gif

How much would you think i can OC my i5 4690K when using a CM TX3 air cooler on it?

It's idling at about 28-33C
at high load (Elite Dangerous Horizons maxed out in 4K) it's running at 58-63C. Is that a high temperature for an modern day Intel CPU or can i do a mild overclock on it without the needs to get a bigger cooler? smile.gif

Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Overclock till either the PC becomes unstable or temps become an issue.

Mid 70C is where I'd draw the line.
