Need help with Maximus IV Extreme overclock + i7-2600K!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need help with the overclocking settings on my Maximus IV Extreme B3 mobo and i7-2600K cpu. Bios is 1204. It's my first time overclocking a board and I managed a stable
4.6Ghz with Vcore1.296. Problem is my temps are running very high when I run Prime 95 and when I uncompress my HD footage, 34C on idle but 81C under full load. I have a Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler with both fans at max rpm (which is quite loud now).
This is 24/7 machine and I do HD Video editing, my actual temps are lower when I render my final output though as not all cores are fully loaded - 60-63C which is fine. Should I be worried with the high temps during benchmark and when I uncompress? I followed some guides online to achieve my 4.6 OC but everyone else's temps are 65-70C under full load running Prime 95. I have a descent case with plenty airflow CoolerMaster HAF X with 5 fans.
My CPU voltage setting in bios is 1.350, any recommendations on how I can drop my overall volts/temps and still keep this machine stable would be appreciated.

If you want to take the soldering iron to the mobo & mod it up this is the place, but sounds like you're more interested in one of these sections to get the info you're after:
