    CPU/GPU OC

    Now while yes, I have always over clocked my CPU's(At least from the 950 and up series lolol), I'm not quite sure how to play around SAFELY with the voltages. The temps are fucking amazing. At a 24/7 4.2 clock max temps are around 61c. However, I had wanted to try a 4.6 one day. Wasn't stable. 4.4 was iffy. I never touched the voltages though, I only fucked with the multiplier. PSU is an EVGA Supernova 750(First gen one). So...

    4.2: Completely stable 24/7 at default voltage.
    4.4: Iffy, at default voltage.
    4.6: Default voltage. Would crash when under load

    I DO run an XMP profile on my ram, but it is only at 1866, so I didn't think it would matter if at all. But there is the information.


    Now, for GPU OC'ing I haven't really had much luck, so I didn't really ever go bother with it anymore, just bought pre oc'd versions. However, I do have an ASus 980 Matrix Platnium ROG card. It comes pre oc'd, but the ASCI % is at 73%, so I would assume I could push it harder. Dunno though.

    Just really wanting advice on what I should try for CPU/GPU oc's/what I should try the voltages at.

    Also, here is a screenie of some monitoring programs, and just specs in general.

    Computer Specifications:
    Case: NZXT H440
    PSU: EVGA SuperNova 750W
    Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth Z87
    CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K
    CPU Cooling: Corsair H-100i
    RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB(8x2)1866Mhz
    GFX: MSI 1070 GamingX

    Could ask you on skype but does the H100i perform well?

    Cool
    Default voltage isn't always the greatest to try and attempt because it limits your overclock. The trick is to raise the voltage in very, very small increments like from 1.2 to like 1.205 for example. It will take longer, but that way you get the lowest voltage for maximum stability. I would also check out Linus' videos on YouTube on overclocking since he gets very detailed and explains very well. What I use as a daily driver with my 4690k and H75 cooler is 4.5ghz and 1.25 volts. Anything under 1.3 is safe, but lower is better if you can maintain stability.

    Dunno my ambient temps, however: Full load CPU never goes above 60, 65 at the hottest. I've been playing a lot of Ark Survival, and at max settings at 2560x1080 the highest core was 63. All of the cores were: 62,58,63,57. That was for at least 2 hours, too.
