aren't my temps a bit too high ?

89 is high but under a stress load like that it seems about right, you should never hit those temps under normal load.  What are your Idle temps?

The temps seem a bit high. I'm thinking your heatsink mounting might have a bit of air.

just out of curiosity

 

what are your temps

 

when gaming?

 

if you run cinebench five times in a row?

i think you temps are bit high but it's OK cause is just stress testing so everything is going to be all right

you can try and lower your voltage, if it is too high.  depends on your ambient but it should be fine.

for some reason my 1.275 survived a 6h Intel Burn Test test but yesterday I was just idling and CPU crashed .. booted PC up and it crashed again .. I am going to a LAN party soon and I really dont want it to happen there :)

When gaming I think last time I checked I hit the 80s or so .. 84c + -

The temps seem a bit high. I'm thinking your heatsink mounting might have a bit of air. 

I re-mounted it after temps were high (4.4 95c) and I think I mounted it good this time .. should I try tightening the screws a bit ?

when reading this post when Sony Vegas 11 Pro is on, 47c on 2 cores

edit - after watching a "preview" of a video on sony vegas (not rly idle) 61c on 2 cores

You should be tightening the screws so that a light twist won't turn the screws anymore.

running your fans in quiet mode?

 

can you ramp up the rpm?

under occt 88c is great

full load under a game even at 100% will never reach that

idk man my i5 2500k reaches 85 Celsius with an aftermarget air cooler at 4.7 GHz and running a stress test on my graphics card aswell (so the case is HOT inside) but it's not like those temps will cause your chip any harm since it's under full load.

Your temperatures are high but it is not to critical. You can however lower your temperatures by using the offset voltage if your motherboard supports it. Keeping in mind everyone's criteria, CPU, ambient temperatures and cooling solution, is different for temperatures, here is mine

that's some good voltage. My CPU crashes sometimes during Sony Vegas 11 Rendering (96~100% load) and even sometimes during idle ! I am extremely frustrated and have no idea what to do. I will remount the cooler soon because I am moving to another country and taking my PC in a bag.

what is your ram ?

 

have you tried to scale the memory back to 1333mhz @ 1.5V ?

 

your temps are hot but even at 90c your intel cpu  should  technically run fine if the system is stable. the system however is NOT stable.

 

overclocking takes time to find stability

 

 

use the ietu or prime 95 blend test to stress test your chip.

 

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/desktop-motherboards/desktop-boards-software-extreme-tuning-utility.html

 

make sure your on the latest bios

 

given your results

 

set ram at 1333mhz at 1.5V

 

i would start at 4.2 or 4.3GHz at 1.27V

 

try and find stability for 8 hours

 

if stable push for 4.4GHz or more. I think 1.27V is prolly your max voltage for your cooling setup

 

if not stable you dont really have much thermal headroom to go past 1.28V

 

settle for a low overclock at low voltages.

 

 

you can always run at stock if your in a jam

my system at 1.28 passes torture tests but sometimes fails at rendering sony vegas files. Today I crashed during rendering + while watching preview on sony vegas , and a couple days ago while playing BF3 .. what can be the problem ? thanks for a long reply

I think you should clear your CMOS and load your default settings in BIOS and start over. I am not familiar with Asrock's extreme tuning utility but after clearing my CMOS and loading default BIOS settings i would leave everything on auto and run the utility to see how high i can get then do a stress test and use sony vegas 11 to see if i get any crashes. If it doesn't then i would start reducing the CPU voltage with the offset mode in little increments to the point of instability and from there i would increase the offset a little until i get stability back again then do a stress test again and check temperatures.

 

Another thing i would do is check to see if the RAM that you are using is compatible with my motherboard as incompatible RAM can cause instability too.

 

This is how i did my overclock and i have 5 profiles 4.2ghz- 4.7ghz with good temperatures and voltages but it took time, a lot of time to get there so be patient.

I just got Vengeance 4x4 1600mhz ram. I will run prime95 on blend and for the finishing touch Sony Vegas 11. how long should each stability test be ? (final for 6~12h)

Run prime95 for 8 - 12 hours and do about two of the sony vegas edits(however you normally do) and see how that goes. You may also need to clear your CMOS but make sure your overclocks are save to the motherboard profile list first.

 

Happy overclocking.

For an Intel 3770k the maximum recommended temperature is 67 degrees Celsius. This is recommended because anything over has a higher chance of causing faster CPU degradation, especially on a chip that is further from the centre of the wafer when it is being made. The maximum voltage recommended is 1.3v as anything higher will cause your CPU to degrade quicker. So while your temperatures are fine and there are many many people who run hotter than that 24/7, you should be aiming to never exceed the 67 degree threshold even under full load


I am good at computer

Happy overclocking.

 and each stability test for new voltage ? is 10~15mins ok ?

What do you mean test for new voltage and 10 - 15 minutes ? You are suppose to have already put a voltage and you run the stress test, in your case you would run both prime95 and Sony Vegas 11 for a period of time to check for stability, if you get BSOD then you increase your voltage a bit or decrease your multiplier a bit then stress test again. If after you have run both tests and you have not gotten any problems then you have a stable overclock and now you can either stay there and be happy or push for more. Just remember to save your overclock profile in your motherboard so you can recall it if you want to.

what I do is set a frequency, like 4.4 then ramp up the voltage in very small increments. from 1.25 (unstable) to 1.255, then 20 minute prime95. if stable then sony vegas 11, if unstable more voltage until I reach stability
