6600k vcore and temps overclocking results so far seem interesting

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I rarely OC intel CPU's but after booting this one up yesterday for the first time I just had to check this one out. I started out stock with XMP RAM at 3200mhz, turbo all 4 cores to 3.9ghz. Max temp on realbench, cinebench, several different 3dmarks and CPU intensive gaming it hit 42c.

What's funny here is that the cooler (see sig) is just a measly Thermalright copper cooler with a single 120mm fan on an open test bench. My case for this build won't be here for a few more days and I know with proper airflow it'll increase my thermal efficiency.

Fast forward to a few different overclocks and right now i'm at 4.7 at 1.360. I know this is the at or over preferred limit of Skylake as far as voltage goes, but testing at this stage has only brought the highest core temp to 62c.

I've have used a dozen or so Skylake chips and aside from my very first one, this particular one has been pretty phenomenal.

One more thing I have to add is the motherboard I'm using. This one model in particular is the same model I used for my very first Skylake CPU and it too was a great overclocker. You don't think this board design has something to do with general overclockability on the cpu installed do you?

I'm just trying to make sense of all of this. At this point, what would you do here? Push higher, stay here or decrease the clocks/voltage?

1.36V is well below the limit. Intels posted limits are 1.52V however most stay within 1.44V to give a bit of head room. Feel free to push further since temps are in check.
