I5 4690K - Plateau or not?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Guys,
I've been succesfully overclocking my 4690K, all the way up to 4.5GHZ; for this I set Vcore to 1.215, turned on LLC and cpu voltage offset mode. This settings were stable, with an idle temp of 34-38 degrees and up to a max of 67 degrees when gaming (Prime did push it up to 71 degrees).
I currently have a Corsair H60 watercooling system, and I feel this temps are kind of a treshold already (it's winter here and ambient temps are going to increase in a few months, hence the rig's temp). My question is: should I keep going further on my oc? are those temps ok?

Thanks in advance.-

Temps are fine. Worry when they hit the 90s in Prime etc. Are you benchmarking or anything or just want to overclock for fun\see how high you can push it? If you're just looking for a daily 24/7 gaming overclock, a 4.5Ghz i5 of any kind is plenty. No reason to go higher unless you want to. You're most likely going to top out at 4.6-4.7 anyways, if you're lucky.

Well I did OC for a performanc boost and I got what I wanted (fps boost). From now on it's just out of curiosity, I'm not even benchmarking.
I'll keep it in mind, thanks for the info!

I'd say if you're happy where it is now save these settings in a profile so you can revert back to it later. Now that it is saved wind that baby up and see what it will push to.

You know, for curiosity purposes. wink.gif
