I think so too Steve, run the games you normally play or video transcoding or? If it holds up it should be okie dokie. That is a bit warm for a 250MHz CPU.

Agreed! I find that BF3 stresses my system better than any individual test out there. A true test is when all the components work together without crashing.

Well, what the heck do you expect me to do? I increased the multiplier to 2.5. Jeezzzz! But it is rather warm.

And James, I did that last night. Worked great.

Next up, 4.7 and trying to stabilize LLC to be lower; it's already being monitored at 1.368 with LLC set to Extreme with an actual voltage of 1.325.



Different board, different bios, different results - but I'm using 50% LLC and it's all good.

Memtest is the clear boredom winner, but prime is a close second.

As for hardcore, I used to do 20-50 IBT passes and 24hr Prime runs, but my patience is decreasing too. 5-10 For IBT, 12hr for Prime.

Lately I'll prime at a given offset - call it stable - then lower it a bit and just 'real world test it'. Any freezes/BSODs, I bump the setting up.

Ie I primed at +.105, but I lowered it to +.070, had one freeze in Arma 2 - bumped it up to +.085 and so far so good. After the initial Prime test, I simply could not be arsed re-running it.

If I keep encountering freezes - back to the Prime passing Offset. Eventually I do the same to RAM. Lower DRAM volts and vccio, and see how it 'real worlds'.

At least if it plays silly buggers, I have a good idea why.

I've found Aida64 gets my 3770K hotter than Prime does. I generally use Aida64 for stress testing and temp monitoring anyway but found it interesting. Others on another forum have since found the same thing.

yeah, Aidax64 stress test seems to be pretty decent.

Hm. Maybe I'll use that when I try for 4.7 either today or tomorrow.

I doubt I'll hit 5 on my current setup; Ivy runs too damn hot for that. I need my extra 140 rad already!

Yeah, I'm certainly not going for 5 with Ivy...

4.8 maybe... but not 5.

4.7 daily is my current sweet spot.

I thought I would show what the "OC Tuner" in my Asus Sabertooth board does. It is a very safe overclock, and it overclocks the CPU, RAM and iGPU. I have tweaked the RAM frequency and the iGPU frrequency just a touch. The next step is to lower the voltage until I'm at a more reasonable setting. I personally don't need any more out of this CPU, but I'm glad to see some people have been able to push it to 4.5-4.6GHz with no problems.

Also, if anybody has the 3570K and an Asus Z77 motherboard, feel free to send me a message if you have any tips or tricks on how you got the numbers you got. Always appreciate tried and true information!
