It's a CM N520. I guess it's wrong to compare it's performance with my old A6-3670K, that one was overclocked at 3.2Ghz, and it's voltage at 1.43. Would never go up to 60.
This A10-5800K will not break 4.4GHZ before failing miserably in OCCT after 3 seconds. Taking the voltage up two steps will still not give me stability.
However, setting it to the voltage recommended by other A10 overclockers, it just jumps to 70C under two minutes. Interesting considering of the overclock guides I saw was able to overclock it with a stock heatsink, but none of the reviews ever mention temperatures, and I am unable to find a reliable source of this chip's max temperature. Some say 74, some others say 80. Hell I saw someone on a forum say his chip went up to 89C. What I find ridiculous is that in every overclocking guide you see them typing in big bold letters ''what your temperatures'' but never speak about the chips temperature whatsoever.
I can't dare to increase the voltage and run a test for an extended period of time if I'm unsure of what temperature I should be worrying about.
