Is this a good/safe 24/7 OC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've recently wanted to mess with the OC with my i5-4690k and these are the results I got. I was wondering your opinions on which safe OC is worth it for 24/7 use. I would (personally) like to stick with 4.7 ~ 4.8 GHz OC.

4.5 GHz ~ 1.19v ( 25c idle ~ 60c full load)
4.7 GHz ~ 1.255v ( 30c idle ~ 65c full load)
4.8 GHz ~ 1.32v ( 35 c idle ~ 70c full load)

I use a Hyper 212 Evo cooler.
Here are the rest of my specs.

CPU - Intel Core i5-4690k (current OC is 4.7 GHz ~ 1.255v)
GPU - GTX 960 (1500 MHz Core clock ~ 3600 Memory clock OC)
PSU - Kingwin ABT-850MM 850W Power Supply
MOBO - Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI
RAM - Crucial Ballistix Sport 16gb (1600 MHz)
COOLER - Hyper 212 Evo

Thanks for any answers you guys have!

Go for the 4.7 or the 4.8 as they're both safe for 24/7 usage considering that their temps/voltage fall below the max limits for that CPU.

Alright, that's what ill probably do. Would you stick with that 4.8 GHz OC even with a hyper 212 evo?

You reach 70c max temp with the 212, right? I'd stick with 4.8ghz, it's clear the 212 is enough to deal with the heat thumb.gif

Alright. Ill probably end up sticking with the 4.8 GHz OC then. The only thing that concerns me is the randoms spikes sometimes in 75c for a quick second, then it drops down to 70c and below. But I guess that's to be expected.
