I7 4770k 3.5ghz Overclocked to 4.3ghz Safe Temps?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I did a lazy overclock, as my board is ancient.. I did manage to obtain an overclock of 4.3ghz on a GA H87M-D3H (****ty board i know)
I haven't played with voltages much as i'd rather a z board to be comfortable..

That said, i did read the read me, and have the proper settings adjusted c state, esit etc.

I also have a H110i installed, All round i have 5 intake fans of 120 pulling air in..
With the beastly 2 X beastly 140s ontop of the case pushing air up and out through the radiator of the cpu, and my exhaust next to the cpu out the back..

I did run a prime 95, TORTURE TEST, but quickly turned it off as it was sitting on 82 degrees celsius on the torture test and well i know that's just too hot to sit on.

In battlefield 4 however it's given me a 20% FPS increase, with a temperature roaming from 40 - 58, peaked at 62, but doesn't sit on it.
And the gpu sits on 50 - 60 easily.

My question is, all in all, is 40 - 58 degrees cpu safe temperatures for gaming for this overclocked cpu on this bad motherboard. tongue.gif


All opinions and knowledge is appreciated.thumb.gif P.S i know i overclocked like a 5 year old, no need to state the obvious!

Regards

Yes, you should be fine, and along as its under 90.

However it being a H87, please check your VRM speeds etc as these may not have very good cooling and be more of a worry

Oh i already know it's vrm phases are low, which is why i only tried overclocking with liquid cooling.

The vrm is on mobo and has nothing to do with cpu cooler fyi

As the CPU is demanding more power, the VRMs need to be able to keep up with this demand.

OP, what water cooling do you use, for it to be at over 80*C?
