Windows 7: The Proof is in for the Cause of Poor Ivy Bridge Overclocking Temps

19 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1

The max temp for the 3770k is 105c so there's plenty of room for OCing. @ 4.7GHz and an offset of +0.085, mine averages ~ 80c (the hottest core hits 90c) so I'm not concerned at all.

Windows 7 64 bit SP1. EFI boot partition., full EFI boot.

That's the temp that the processor will shut down to prevent immediate permanent damage. You shouldn't run anywhere near that if you want the processor to last for any amount of time. Keeping core maximum below Tcase is still a good rule of thumb IMO. Unfortunately Intel hasn't published a Tcase for Ivy bridge processors, but it was around 72 for Sandybridge.

105c wow that's like the temp's on the sun ! These chips are perfect for stock settings and a great aftermarket cooler. But overclocking champs they'll never be !

Here is a IB OC review: Undervolting and Overclocking on Ivy Bridge

Ivy Bridge overclocking is a different beast to Sandy Bridge, so we want to make sure there are several clear correlations implanted in a users mind when it comes to a stable Ivy Bridge overclock.

Below I will take you through numbers I have gathered during testing. But two things are certain:

- Ivy Bridge gets hot with voltage.
- Ivy Bridge behaves differently to Sandy Bridge.

The key to an Ivy Bridge overclock is a combination of a good processor speed increase with as little of an increase in the voltage as possible.
