New overclocker here. opinions welcomed.

Recommended Posts

Looks like a pretty decent overclock. If it's stable for gaming, then your on the right track. 

 

How do the temps look?

thats actually one of my concerns, my temps get high, 80s-90's but i have changed a few things to increase my "marks"? i know more marks are better, but what exaclty are marks?, also, i was doing comparisons and i need some info on what exactly turbo boost power time window is and how to/ what that should be set at and also what cache ICCmax is and what i should be setting that to as well. i need to do something to try to bring my temps down im running a be quite! dark rock pro 3

The only thing to bring yout temps down is to delid the cpu and redo it with liquid metal... also think that XTU uses AVX instructions, so 80°C there, is not even 70°c during gaming....

What he said ^ ... delided on load temps can drop 25c. That's alot so keeping under 80c for benchmark runs will be better for results.

Ditch the air cooler. If your serious then custom water cooling, slow speed pump, large surface area radiators.

eg. My 8086K machine has UK alloy watercool brand rads 3x140mm & 2x140mm. Benches 5.4Ghz & cooling to spare in Australia 20c ambient mornings

if your CPU can complete a full XTU run it will be more than stable to run games (non AVX)...

Who still cares about Prime. When you game you take the GPU into it too...

If its game stable no need to torture your setup with silly Prime95
