My System Specs


I find that sometimes auto settings in bios are not really optimal. I've experienced a little with my i5-3570k, I use manual settings for voltage, I have mine set to 1.1v, guess one loses nothing to try and find the sweet spot, guess I have one of those good samples. Anyhow, at 1.1V manual I can OC my i5-3570k to 4Ghz rock solid (tested) - with temps never exceeding 75 under full load with the standard cooler. Leaving auto settings, my temps could easily go above 85-86.
