Maximum safe overclock for a I7 6700k

Recommended Posts

Hi guys so i am still new to the overclock game and i am looking to overclock my cpu further im currently using the MSI over clock program which comes with the motherboard and i have been running stable 4.4Ghz up from 4 Ghz for the past 3 months with temps staying under 60 Degrees c. I am using Antec KUHLER AIO single radiator on the unit.

What temperature range should i be keeping it under?

What have other people clocked to while keeping it stable?

What would be the recommended voltages to stay under and cpu ratios?

best to keep it under 85c while stress testing

i have my 6700k at 4.7ghz 1.375v this is a fairly conservative v apparently pushing up to 1.45v is fairly common for those trying to hit 4.8-4.9ghz

i found i was better focusing on tweaking the ram timings than trying to squeeze another 100mhz out of the cpu with a fair jump in v

He does live in NT where ambient air temps are around 30C so he's done well to keep it under 60C.

Ok im not sure on how to clock the ram speeds up as of yet, Im using G skill Trident z 3200 sticks but they seem to be only running at 2133. I will see what it runs at clocked to 4.6Ghz tonight, Would you be able to share some information on how to clock the speeds of the memory up?

to get it to its rated speed you will find a xmp setting in bios enable it

this will also change a few other settings though so make sure your v is all still correct afterwoods
