crimsontears809739 Reguarding how much to increase...

https://www.overclock.net/t/1247413/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-with-ln2-guide-at-the-end/0_50 <-- Here is a guide.

Above 1.52 Volts Intel states permanent damage will occur.

General conensus is, do not go higher than 1.45 volts if your keeping your processor overclocked 24/7. Even if your temps are good, too high voltage can damage the transistors in your processor over extended periods of time.

Going from stock (1.0 volts) to 1.3 volts should be a piece of cake on that heatsink. Somewhere between 1.3 volts and 1.45 volts, your heatsink won't be able to keep up with the heat comming off the processor. A little bit of voltage goes a long way. I would start at 1.3 volts, and increase it in baby steps 0.02 volts at a time until your overclock is stable.

Where to increase?

You can increase the voltage in Windows (only on some motherboards) or in the BIOS.

It is considered a "good practive" to do your over-volting in the BIOS. You will get more options, and will be able to achieve higher overclocks if you do it through the BIOS. This is also safer than doing it in Windows.

You can get results quicker, and the options will be simplier to understand if you are over-volting using a ultility in Window. (You need a motherboard that comes with a utliity from the manufacturer to do this).

Please, just do everything 100% in one or the other. If you adjust some voltage settings in Windows, while adjusting other voltage settings in the BIOS can cause bad things happen. I learned this the hard way. :-/

The setting you are looking to increase is "VCC" or "VCORE".

Now, there is other settings (other than VCC) in the motherboard you can overvolt/undervolt to get a even higher overclock,...but this gets a little more advanced and these setting don't have nearly as big of an impact on how fast you can go. If you want to know more about these settings, read through the guide i linked you to or look through the stickied threads.

You should be able to get your "max" stable speed somewhere between 4.6 and 5 Ghz, and 1.3 to 1.45 volts. All depending on some luck, your processor, and your cooling.

I have a syche mugen 2, a 2500K, and i am at 4.7 GHz at 1.37 volts.

nircc ok if i want to raise it to 4.5
wich setting i change to raise the volts?and how much of them i increase?

crimsontears809739 TjMax is 98 C. It's good practice to keep it below 80C at all times. 61C is no reason to be concerned of worried.

You should over-volt it a little, and push it faster! :-D

What can you do to reduce temp? That is too open-ended of a question for me to give useful advise. You have to be more specific, like "how can i approve airflow in a _______ case" or "what heat-sink or thermal paste will improve my temps, i am currently using ______".

Make it more stable? Over-volt it if it's unstable.

Make it more safe? Judging by your temps, your safe.

nircc hey guys i got my new gaming computer
and i just tried to OC my 3570k with Mugen 3
i disabled Turbo boost
and increased my cpu to 4.2GHz
now i get 55-61 temp with prime time and real temp
is there anything i can do to reduce temp ? and make it more stable/safe?
