I can't watch the video right now, but I'd like to help you. What are your temps and what is the overclock

Idle: 35-40c
Gaming 50-60c

The overclock is 4.6 Ghz.

Wow, those temps are what people get on Hyper 212s. nice.

As for the offset, if everything is stable and your temps are fine you should be fine. What is your actual voltage at load?

Gaming temps don't tell you anything. No, that overclock is not safe on stock cooling. Most people hit the max temperature limits of their i5/i7 on stock cooler on the stock settings.

I'm pretty sure you get into a big battle, or run prime95 small fft, you will cause an instant shutdown on your computer as it hits it's tjmax of 105*c.

What is the point of that video? That isn't you, it's incredibly obnoxious video. Please fill out your rig, put up screens, etc.

have to agree with this. your stock cooler with the CPU @ 4.6GHz wont handle any sort of stability testing.

And seriously, did he just disable speedstep? What's the point of using offset OC and not letting it downclock/lower voltages?
Also, offset at +0.090 without checking VID first isn't a good idea

Edit: Also what the others said, OC'ing at stock cooling is a no no, especially to 4.6

I'd post up some screenshots of temperatures running Prime95... But if you're using the stock cooler that came with your processor I'd recommend picking up an aftermarket cooler before you do so, stock cooling + overclocking is asking for some sort of trouble.

I didn't know all this thats why I came on here. I ran those settings just testing it and it seemed fine, then I put them back to stock clocks and came on here to verify if those settings were even safe.
