Windows 7: Would a 1.44 CPU VCORE be too much?

It'll be an exciting night trying to achieve a fully stable overclock
Should probably spend in a close loop water cooling kit as well maybe.
But my temps were fine when I reached 4.4GHZ last night.. We'll see.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to bring it to a stable 4.4Ghz, the temperatures were too high for my liking at 1.4570 Volts and reaching 70C in under two minutes. The test did not fail for 20 minutes, but I believe the TJMAX for this chip is 74C.

It's strange, I've seen review sites claim that the chip gets up to 89C while running OCCT at 4.5GHZ.
I wonder if my air cooler is under performing.

What cooler are you using ?

I have a waterloop so my temps are probably 20c lower then it would be without it

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.

Always keep your temps within what the AMD site suggest they are the only true form of info givin for max temps

That's my problem. I cannot find AMD's specifications for this chip.

Thanks, but I learned from experience to never trust that site.
With my old CPU's they would always list it as a temperature that was much much lower to what AMD publishes. Specially with APU's, my last one had a 65Max temperature on CPU world, and when AMD finally released information it was listed to be 74.

I would say that is accurate because the lower the TDP the higher the temp it can max

Im running 125w socket chip my temps top at 61c but during stability test i got to 53c max which means i have more room but i was happy with what i got when overclocking

I also come to the conclunsion we have the same architecture as well

Hm.. I wonder how that one guy who claimed his CPU reached 90C managed to post from his computer. I'm guessing 90C would have caused some serious damage.
