Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering what I may be doing wrong, is it safe, etc... I tried the ASRock BCLK auto overclock stuff to reach 4.3GHz on my non K 6700 CPU. But the temps where hitting 70/80C under stress test.

This is the internals of the machine:

As you can see, I'm using a closed loop water cooler for the CPU.

It's currently using Silver 5 TIM.

If you are wondering why a 1080 and 980, the 980 is a dedicated CUDA card for rendering 3D work.

The machine specs are as follows (at the basic perm boost clock):

Auto OC set the vCore too high.

Set it manually in the bios to 1.15v. Should be more than enough for 4.3GHz.

Thank you so much.... Tried 1.15v, intermittent booting so increase to 1.2v. This seems to give consistent boot with no issues. Temps capped out at 58C running a prime95 load test.

Final speed reached was 4.38GHz with a bclk of 129 .

Hopefully not to bad for a non K 6700.

Now for some long term stability testing.

Again, thanks.

Looks good. No worries, with such low temps, if the vCore is still too low, you have quiet a big margin.
