overclock Are these good numbers for a overclock?

Hello,

After changing the motherboard, Ive been able to get a 4820K up to 4.5Ghz @ 80C and at 1.448V using a H110 cooler running Prime95.

I was able to get to 4.7Ghz but temps were around 86C but more importantly I was hitting 1.6V which Ive read is kinda high for this processor.

I want to make sure that the processor is OK at those temps and voltage.

Thank you.

... 80c with a water cooler?!
That is WAY TOO HOT. 
You should be getting bout 30c (idle) - 70c (load/MAX) with a H110 - I had my trusty 3570k running at 5GHz once at it sat comfortably on about 45c 

I dunno what settings ure using but id double check em man, specially if thats idle temp. O.O

I haven't overclocked my system in years (no real need to and I have lost the drive to push my system).

 

That being said, an 800Mhz overclock sounds pretty decent for that processor. The best I was able to push my overclocks was maybe up to around 3.5-3.6Ghz from a 3-3.2Ghz base, on water cooling of course. But I also always tried to hit as high as possible without overvolting much (if at all).

 

As for the temps, 80C is quite high for a CPU, I personally tried to always keep mine at 70C max when I overclocked (possibly another reason I never got over 3.6Ghz), but as long as that's like a burn-in test max temperature, than it should be fine for normal usage.

Hello,

Added that this is with Prime95 :p just in case...

80C is way too hot w/ a water cooler. you shouldnt even be topping 70C. The voltage seems way too high, but you also might have air flow issues.

The case is the same as the other motherboard. I dont remember the numbers I was pushing the other.

Question: Even if it runs this hot (or more important is the voltage too high), can it be ran like this? Im planning to leave it all weekend running to ensure it is stable.

If it is dangerous, Ill stop and review it on monday.

you havent said what the motherboard or case are... just that you changed the motherboard.

 

i cant tell you what the correct voltage should be, unfortunately. Running a CPU at 80C isnt the end of the world, but will shorten the lifespan of your components.

 

I have the H80. Does your H110 have different settings for pump speed and fan speeds? If so, they should ALL be at max.

Its a NZXT H630 with a Asus Rampage IV Extreme. I can only regulate the H110 thru BIOS/Speedfan settings. And they should be at 100% (they are louder right now than the previous board in this case).

Also, room temp is at 24C.

According to this your temp shouldn't exceed 66.8

Does your Rampage have the AI Suite or any auto-overclocking in the BIOS? that auto-overclock works wonders for me. My CPU will automatically scale to 4.2-4.3GHz depending on load and the temp never goes above 65C under extreme load

Yeah, I tried touching the BIOS and I set it to 4.7 Ghz but that gave me readings that were way too high so I used AI Suite to set it to 4.5 (said it was recommended) and this is what thats gotten me here.. And that what its doing now...

Hello,

I set it back down to 4.3 Ghz and restarted. Temps are at 25C on idle.

Voltage is at 1.304 V

Turned on Prime95 again, 1.316 V and we are hitting 63C (these temps are more or less real as I just restarted)

Way better, looks like You have set vcore on auto, that is way was so high under load at 4.5, You can try to set manual vcore for 4.5 and test it under Prime, maybe You can get stable clock under 1.4v ;)

Hello,

After a few hours, its still at 62 C and 1.316 V at 4.3 Ghz...

Im not sure I can get any more out of it...

Hello,

Just a update, its 7AM so we are at 3C and its at 1.316 V at 4.3 Ghz and temp is at 53C
