Hello this is my first time OCing a CPU, did some research and got it to 4.2Ghz... seems stable did run PRIME95 and played games for couple of hrs and no BSOD. Temps are pretty good around 40c Idle and low 70s at 100%.
I was just wondering if everything looks okay? or should i try some other values? Any suggestions on getting it higher would be great

Thank You!!!

Looks good.I am at a stable 4.6 GHZ (23x200) at 1.40625V. My temps are ~32 at idle and low 70s under 100% load. I have my memory set to 1603 and DRAM voltage at 1.64. My cooler is a Corsair H100i V2, but I am looking to do a custom loop to try and drop temps a little ( want 65 degrees at 100%). Do you know your CPU-Z or Cinebench scores?

CAPSLOCKSTUCK, I like the fact that your voltage is quite a bit lower than mine as it makes for a cooler chip. I am at 1053 with Cinebench, so we are pretty close. I haven't tried the lower multiplier with higher BCLK settings but maybe I should.

You can go more on UCLK freq. and gain few more % in performance...also I don´t think there is a need for OC CPU PLL on 1,88....keep it lowest as you can....in your case on that mobo that is 1,80....GL

What is considered a safe temp for the X56xx CPUs? I'm on air and both of my X5670's hit 80c+ in prime, I'm around the 1.3v realm as well. I've never been able to go past 4.1 Ghz on either

No worries thats OK temp for air IF it´s only when your CPU is under the extreme load like prime 95 or intel burn test.....You should be worried if you start hitting those temps in gaming or editing otherwise it´s fine......

We have the almost same ASUS MB :toast: ... mines the P6X58D-E. My second is an EVGA that seems like a hot-mess but is quite solid, had to move a 1.5mm surface mount capacitor to have it recognize the X5670. Moving the capacitor was a nerve wracking ordeal

What are you sitting at with your E5645 and Hyper cooler?

I prefer to keep him at 4Ghz and lower Voltage (1,232V).....I could push him up to 4,2 but then I need to rise the V and cooling becomes a problem need to keep my case open and Its just ain´t worth it....and yeah so far this mobo perform excellent didn´t have any issue what so ever and I love it....

Dont worry so much about voltage. Its safe up to 1.35 volts. But if your cooling cant keep up, i can understand. How hot does it get on cores?

I dont have a xeon, but i have litterly torture the living crap out of a I7 920 and my current I7 980X. Nonen of them has suffered any damage. I7 920 @ 4.4 i ran up to 1.45 volt over 4 years (had it for 8 years, but first 4 years at stock) while I7 980X has been beaten and torture with up to 1.55 volts and 4.77 GHz for the past year, throw for daily use i run it at 4.25 GHz at 1.35 volts. None of the CPU´s have so far shown any damage like degration or instability. X58 CPU´s can take more beating than you think. Thats my exsperience so far. X58 and CPU's are hard to kill, not impossible but hard indeed. I7 980X is just the same as a 6 core xeon.

And i can also see we have the same motherboard even. So can confirm as well that this board can give and take som punishment it self also.

And even if my I7 980X dies from this abuse, i will just replace it with a dead cheap xeon. By the way all of this is done on aircooling. Throw cooler i use to I7 980X is a big lump of aluminium (noctua NH-D14).

1.5+V...what are you cooling that with?
Air cooling: Noctua NH-D14 with 3 silver stone FM121 120 MM fans + thermal grizzly kryonaut cooling paste. no surface grinding or delid on the cpu. I7 980X is soldered from factory.
Core temp does get a bit toasty off cause at 4.77 and 1.55 volts. Temp above 90 C happens offcause but it dosent throttle at all as you guys also can se on the scores. But at these voltage and clocks its only for short burst of benchmark.
Shut i run at these clock/voltage over longer time water cooling would be needed.

But i do have testet temperature at stock, 4.25 GHz at 1.35 volts and 4.62 GHz at 1.46 volts.

First stock CPU. Please note under max temp these temp where with no fans on cpu cooler so passive cooled and the 41 C to 46 C is with fans mounted again at max speed.



4.25 GHz with all 3 fans at max speed. Well below critical temperature.



4.62 GHz here it begins to be a bit toasty but not dangerous for shot time runs and again with max fan speed.

Baby oil lol. No dry ice or LN2 :p. But impressive clocks none the less, is it bench stable at those clocks and is not stable with hyper threading on?
Waterchilled

I didn't try that clock speed with hyper threading on.

Here was stable but i had to keep the Waterchiller's temps at 9c.

Awesomeness... I need a better cooler I think. Both of my rigs (ASUS and EVGA) break down in Prime at about 4.2 Ghz. I need to play more with VCore I guess.

I hope to hear an answer about the baby oil too ;)

Waterchilled

I didn't try that clock speed with hyper threading on.

Where was stable but i had to keep the Waterchiller's temps at 9c.

Ah waterchilled. Good.

But how cut you, i mean how dare you beat my CINEBENCH R15 score. You just ruined my mood :p. Now i have to go out and get a phase cooler so i can beat you :laugh:. Just kidding off cause, i am more than happy with 1100 on air cooling.

A shame you dit not test at 5.2 GHz with hyper threading on :cry:. Would have loved to see a cinebench score with that.

Awesomeness... I need a better cooler I think. Both of my rigs (ASUS and EVGA) break down in Prime at about 4.2 Ghz. I need to play more with VCore I guess.

I hope to hear an answer about the baby oil too ;)
X58 CPU's needs a beffy cooler if you want to take them in to the fun area above 4 GHz+. What cooler do you have on it now?

And how much voltage do you give the cpu at 4.2 Ghz?

But yeah i am very satisfied with the temp i get from this air cooler. But i have done every thing i can to get to those temp. good Air flow i case is also important and a good cooling paste can also save you some degrees lower. I have also chosen to sacrifice low noise for better cooling by getting fans with higher RPM and air flow, but so far i have lived with the fans since i got them some 8 years a go and also memory i had to go on a different way by getting low profile ram with lower speed, because the cpu cooler is covering the first ram slots and high profile memory like Corsair dominator GT cut not fit under cpu cooler.
