Hi all, I have just overclocked my 8600k for gaming purposes with an Asrock z370 Extreme4 to 4.8 GHz and I would like to know what do you think about my oc settings/stability. I want a 24/7 oc and I don't want to risk cpu lifespan by oc'ing too much. Also, I live in a warm country and I don't want it to reach too high temperatures in summer.
I have set all cores to 4800 MHz and the CPU cache ratio at 4400 MHz. Long and short duration power limits to 120 and 150 respectively. Offset voltage of 20 mv and llc at level 1 (highest one).
I performed the following tests: 3 runs of Cinebench r20.0 without crashes or BSOD --> Prime95 v29.4 (AVX disabled) 1 hour small FFTs and 30 min blend test without warnings or errors --> RealBench v2.56 stress test 2 times during 15 min with hash match. Temperatures didn't exceed 80ºC during all those tests (iddle temperature remains around 40-50ºC). Voltage VID reached a max of 1.245v (min of 1.200v). No WHEA errors detected.
I've been playing The Division 2 for 2 hours, Overwatch for 1 hour and Metro Exodus for another hour without crashes and cpu temperature was always below 70ºC (1.245v max).
What do you think? Should I do something else? Thanks a lot for your time!!!!!!!!!!!!
