Need help first time builder, eventually first time overclocker

post #1 of 203
Thread Starter 
hello, i'll start off by saying my cpu is 6600k and it's at default atm, i have tried overclocking with the asus software, but then someone told me to do it manually, so i did, but from what they tell me the temp numbers are to high, idle it's 30c, but using aida64 stability test, it goes up to 79c max under full load. any help would be great, thanks

Hi, as that person told you, don't use the Asus overclocking software.
You said it goes to 79 degrees with aida, how long was that running (was that an instant jump?)
You said idle is 30 degrees Celsius, what is the room temp?

What voltages are you running, what clockspeed?
It sounds like you can probably just drop your multiplier by x1 and drop your voltage by a little and you will be within a reasonable temperature range. make sure you run the stress test for a while, temps might go even higher after 15 mins of the test running.

hello, i usually let aida64 run for 30 minutes, the 70c isn't right away but still it goes high fast when i run it start off between 65 to 70, then goes up higher after, the room temp has been jumping around lately but it still stays around 30 to 40c on idle when it's around 90F in room, and right now it's clocked at 3.5ghz and volts are default, the person i had asked before, told me to leave the volts on auto, and just change each core to say 40 to start with, and i did, and temps were same temp as now, i even redid the thermal paste 3 times, so now i'm at a lose, the default volts are 1.375 max.

i just overclocked to 4.2ghz and set the volts to 1.232, then ran aida64 for 30minutes and the max temp they got to was 65c, is that good and do you think i could move it to 4.3ghz and still be stable? 4.4 would be max i want to go, but if not atleast 4.3 would be good.

65C under load should be fine on your CPU. You might also be experiencing air blow instead of air flow and with a 90F room temp just building an air duct out of stiff paper such as cardboard or file folders for the CPU to separate its hot air from the rest of your case can help further reduce your temps. http://www.overclock.net/t/1491876/ways-to-better-cooling-airflow-cooler-fan-data/10#post_22919853

ah thanks for all the help, putting the volts to 1.232 seems to have fixed the problem, got it oc to 4.4ghz now and temp still stays at 65c max, left it for 3 hours.

yeah in bios, got rid of the asus thing, the temps on it were telling me that max was 40c so didn't think anything was wrong, but then decided to ask if it was a good program.
