I have mine set at 4.5ghz with voltage at 1.3. Temps after stress test never went over 65c. What cooler do you have for your cpu?


He hasn't stress tested it yet, so it could be unstable.


Isnt it safe to change the multiplier as long as you dont change the voltage?


No, your CPU might not be stable... I mean it's "safe" but it could cause your PC to BSOD or have other issues.


But be clear, it will not cause damage. You may corrupt your OS by crashing it a lot, but no, if you don't touch the voltage, you can't kill it. There's no other issues.

My OC isnt a "true" OC. If I were to stress test my CPU it would overheat in an instant BUT it is very stable and can run anything on it fine without overheating. Everything runs fine and smoothly.

We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

Ok I have it OCd to 4.2 with temps of 35-40 degrees C now. The 4.4 temps of 50-60 were scaring me haha. Is 4.2 good enough for gaming at this moment to max out settings?

Uh, do you play planetside 2? or, uh, SC2? or far cry 3? or BF3 or 4?

one of those is a good CPU test on their own right

some games need more voltage than others

just applying an OC to a stock voltage is asking for one of these engines to crash

All I did was adjust it to 44 for a 4.4ghz overclock. No voltage increase was necessary. I haven't tried going higher though.

I don't run an Intel but

Disable Intel Turbo Boost when Overclocking.
Enhance Turbo should be disabled as-well.

Far as voltage goes, I do not know whether it's just Vcore or there's more to it

You should be alright at 4.2ghz without changing voltage but you could get lower temps by changing voltage. Anything higher you will most likely have to change voltage.
