Still running on Ivy i5 ... very mildly overclocked, just because it's a K not that I need it ... maybe someday I'll get a monster heatsink and go full retard

Got a 2500k in an Asrock z68 Extreme4 Gen3, it does 4.8ghz at 1.35v, 5.2 at 1.46v

didnt upgrade until skylake as there was a very good chance any ivy/haswell/devils canyon would have been a downgrade unless i got VERY lucky with silicon

3570K @ 4.8GHz currently. I had one of the early run 3570K that would do 5.0GHz and handle more volts. But I smoked it trying to push it too far passed 2.0V. These late run chips use less volts for the same clocks as the earlier ones, but don't clock as high. Meh...4.8GHz works for me. And for whatever reason the actual performance seems to be slightly faster than the earlier one @ 5.0GHz anyways. In most cases.

Whoops!! :oops:
That was to be expected if you play THAT hard :p
Was it water or air cooled?

Edit: So the temps went up beyond 100 degrees C I guess..
Did it do any damage to your motherboard?

It was kinda on accident. I think I clicked 2.2V thinking it was 2.0V. But about 3 seconds later....before I could figure out what I did...black screen. Game over. Motherboard's still running strong though. Water cooled. See system specs.

i5-3570K... Got mine to 4.8 but dailed it back to 4.7 for 24/7 use. Delidded and naked under H2O. The thing gets HOT running Prime95, over 90c but has always been a rock. 2133 memory at CAS 9. 'saul in my specs ;)

I forgot to mention the mem speed thing. The early run I had wouldn't do 2600 at all. The later one will do 2600 2T. But I have it at 2400 CS10 1T. Since that seems to perform best.
2400mem.PNG


You can tell the earlier runs from the later by the shape of the lid. The later runs have a bevel on the corners of the lid. And on the bottom it looks like they used more solder on the early runs(and/or a different kind of solder maybe?). The later are less "shiny" looking. I don't know around what serial # they made the change. But I've looked at many more than the 2 I have, and they definitely aren't all the same. There seems to be at least 2 different looking production runs. The early run I fried is serial # 1290(or production # 1290, or whatever the # on the top side of the processor is called, pretty sure it designates at which point in time it was made). The later one I'm running now is # 25somethingsomething...IIRC.

I tried running without the lid on both. But I couldn't get my mounting solid enough to stay working for very long with either one. 9 times out of 10 I couldn't get the thing to turn on. And even when I did, it would shut itself off pretty quickly. So I gave up and went with a lapped lid and CL ultra underneath. Which keeps it below 95°C at all times. Tops out at 93°C under extreme conditions(earlier one @ 5.0GHz topped out less than 100°C @ 98°C). Which was consistent between both(@ 4.8GHz). Neither ran any hotter or cooler than the other(@ same clocks). Probably due to no major difference in volts. Just 1 click higher/lower to do the same clocks.

EDIT: I just looked at a bunch more 3570Ks on ebay, to see how badly I was talking out of my ass about the earlier/later run theory. Probably not too badly. But maybe a little. I came up with the idea by comparing them to a Celeron G1610 I also have. It came out the year after, and has the lid with the beveled corners. So I still think those with that style lid were made later than the others. But the number on the processor doesn't seem to tell you whether it was or wasn't. Now I'm thinking that number is the production number, lower made before higher. But it looks like they probably started over at 0001 with the later ones(I found some without the lids with beveled corners and a higher number than 2600). So that number probably only relates to others of the same production run. The other style lid(no beveled corners) also looks more similar to previous generation processors too(i.e. my old E8600). I'm pretty sure what I'm thinking now is closer to correct(if not entirely).

Here are my specs from my I5, I just did go to 3.3 GHZ to get the ram going at 1600 MHz, nothing else, it performes nicely, boots under a minute with no ssd installed, plan to install 1 soon.

i5 750, so the older i5's had 8mb l3 cache i see now, newer i5's have up to 6mb.

Thats not bad, booting up under a minute on a HDD..

With ram and cpu at stock, my pc boots at almost minute and a half, which is slow for me. If im able to get an ssd, ill post boot time.

Thanks for sharing, what are your idle and load temps?
it idles at 32-33C loads at 65-68C
U12S, 600rpm fan speed which is virtually silent

My next CPU will be an i7, example when I'm gaming (GTA V) my i5 runs at 75~85% load, I could reduce this if I had an i7.
For now no money so I have to deal with the i5 I have now :ohwell:.

Gtx 1070 on 1080p monitor, your frame rate must be so high that cpu gets to 85% usage at that clocks ... for how much usage reduction with i7, this dude has last gen i7 at 4.5 GHz and for 144 fps capped he gets 60-75% usage ... conclusion is that you can't always count on hyperthreading (but you can always count on higher clocks ;))

At first I used Geforce Experience settings, which enabled all advanced graphics at max!! I had about 95% CPU usage, once disabled the advanced graphics the game played smoother.
I could disable/lower more settings ofcourse, but thats not what I bought a GTX1070 for hehe.:p
I know GTA V is a CPU hog though.

Edit: Ingame setting is at 60Hz.
75% average GPU usage.

Benchmark Scores well I've fried a 775' P4 12 years ago, that counts?
My next CPU will be an i7, example when I'm gaming (GTA V) my i5 runs at 75~85% load, I could reduce this if I had an i7.
For now no money so I have to deal with the i5 I have now :ohwell:.
i friend plays this game with an 2500K i5, no problems at all, i5 are preeeeettttty decent units for gaming sir, an i7 may be useful on CPU ordiented games, GTA uses VGA a lot,

i have noticed a huge difference playing CSGO with i5's and i7's.... same video card,


Regards,

I would not dare to do that :p:D
I don't think anyone here tried that (yet)...
My CPU ran up to 48 max core temp while playing GTA V and my room temp is 24.5 at the moment.
My CPU runs pretty cool, happy with that.
