4670K overclock owners...what clock, voltage, and temps are you getting?

I can't get any function to work properly accept do the auto overclock. If I change ANYTHING else, I get those odd sounds and quirky issues.

And the auto overclock has me at 4.4ghz 1.267v. I don't like that. I'm hitting the 50s while browsing.


Auto overclock?

Um, you reallllly want to avoid that if you're going anywhere over ~4.1ghz - you will end up frying your processor.

And yeah, if you're trying to hit 4.5 on very average air cooling, you almost certainly need to delid.

The Auto overclock is just a test to see if ANY settings are stable. As I said above, I haven't been able to get anything to work manually.

A bit prematurely I said 50ish. That's not really the case. The temps kind of fluctuate around a lot, so the max it was reporting was 50ish. Running some Skyrim texture optimizations, it's in the low 60s. 4.4ghz, 1.262v. I don't think I want to run stress tests on auto overclock settings. I'd love to get 4.4ghz stable. I don't care for 4.5 or 4.6, just that it seems some sites claim 4.6 as a sweet spot for this processor.

I'm not a total moron to overclocking, just a half moron it seems. I'm not worried about frying my processor. I know 68c isn't going to hurt it. I watch closely so nothing goes wrong. As I said though, I just can't get anything stable other than an auto overclock. Think something might be wrong with my motherboard, processor, or do I need to dig a lot deeper into other settings?

What cpu cooler are you using? That's my temps at stock clocks with an H60.

Now I know Haswell runs hotter than its predecessors, but that sounds a bit off. I never see north of 50 at stock clocks and stay below 60 at 4.2.

What cooler do you use? My temps at stock clock just gaming are usually 50c. So I feel my temps are pretty decent considering the voltage. I just can't get a good clock/voltage combination working.

Most review sites get top 10-20% CPUs so their overclocks are usually exaggerated.

4.2 @ 1.13, Hyper 212 EVO

Get about 35C when idle. 73C max when stress testing, hovers around mid-high 60s.

Also, Gigabyte UD3H motherboard.

Edit: Apparently the browsing temps are 45C - 50C, using like 40% of my CPU for some reason.

I just use my mobos auto overclock setting; I don't have to patience to manually do it and test anymore... I really don't have that kind of patience no longer. But it only boosts to 4.3ghz when it needs it so that's what works for me. I know when you use the auto-overclock feature your mobo tends to use higher voltages than necessary but that's ok for me.. better than going through the headache of testing by little increments.
