How much could you safely OC a 3570k with a stock cooler?

Just wondering..

I'm getting one soon but I have no intention of OCing so i'm just using the stock cooler but i'm just wondering in case I ever want to without going through the hassle of installing a different cooler.

Until it gets to 70ish

You can go higher, but stay no higher than 70.

Clock speeds don't matter, its how hot it gets...


Don't go past 70, take the clock speed high as that chip will allow until you're around 70ish on load for a few hours.. Maybe 80.. but I'm not sure how that'll effect those chips in a long term approach.

Let just use this as a baseline, do not use more than 1.4v, do not go past 75 for an 8 hour burntest.

You may get to 4.1-4.2 on stock cooler.

*cough*

If the system boots, go for it, get your benchmarks done. But a nice heatsink is going to save the day.

Ivy runs hot, if sandy runs warm. It's not a problem unless you're looking fer one. You will hit 90C easily...
