i5-4690k safe temp & voltage

Hello guys

 

This is my first time overclocking anything, and I'm currently overclocking my CPU. It's a 4690k and I've OC'd it to 4,5GHZ at 1.29v. Any voltage lower than this seems to crash the PC very quickly. Atm it seems stable, been doing both Prime95 and Aida64 stress test. At 100% usage for a few mins, the CPU reaches 72-75c. 

 

Since this is my first time i was just curious and wanted to ask if this seems fine for you guys. Any tips are much appreciated :D

 

just fyi,  writing this post on my laptop while testing :P

Voltage and temps seem fine. In fact 75°C on Prime is impressive imo. Are you using an AiO that is hugely dampening the first temp spike.

As long as your temps are under 85°C in stress testing, you are more than fine.

In real scenarios you probbably won't even reach over 70°C, so nothing to worry about.

 

Voltage is also in normal limits. I wouldn't go above 1,3V anyway.

at 95*C it starts throttling. basicly below 95 is k ( u wanna stay below 85 at high voltages like 1.4 ect )

 

max voltage u probably will never reach with haswell as u will reach ur temp limits first

 

i would say no higher then 1.35v for 24/7 tho

 

also if u wanna know ur max temps easily, run prime95 SMALL FFT mode < this gives the highest temps possible c: ( its like 15-20*C higher then start of blend ect ) however blend also runs this test after quite some hours

I suppose im not since i dont even know what AiO is :D

Your temperatures and voltages seem fine. There is definitely more overclocking headroom. 75C is a good temp at stable, the 1.29v is good, I'd say that 80C is the sweetspot, 90C is pushing the limits and anything exceeding 90C is unstable and you might experience some thermal throttling. I'd say for the max voltage, 1.375v is max, @1.4v, system probably wont post or it will be an unstable voltage/thermal throttling will occur as well.

AIO, stands for All In One, in which is essentially an all in one liquid cooler. It consists of a radiator, CPU block, fans, a pump, tubing and water. They come in various sizes (E.g. 240mm rad, 120mm rad), different manufacturers produce different models (E.g. corsair, thermaltake), different configurations, etc.
