OMG, I just overclocked

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

so after 30 some years of using PC's I finally had the guts to overclock, well kinda - since I haven't kept up with how to do it manually I used gigabyte's touch bios and did an "automatic" quickboost from 3.3 to 4.4 and the results are remarkable.

 

I was just wondering what advice on free temp monitoring tools you guys have, and what temps can be considered normal with this kind of modest oc. I'm running a gigabyte z68x-ud4-b3 with an i5-2500K (stock 3.3 ghz)?

 

I just did a short testflight in the PMDG T7 from FSDT's KJFK (30 minutes only though) and it never dipped below 30 FPS with about 25% traffic and my cpu temps were in the mid/high 50's C (I used touch bios to monitor temps, but I don't know if I can trust that app to track temps).

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Pete

Thanks guys, any tips on what temp range is normal in oc'd environment for FSX? I did google and found lots of info but wanted to see what FSX users suggest as that's all I use my PC for.

 

Cheers,

Pete

Don't go over 80o Celsius, and you should be fine.

What CPU cooler are you using?

Don't go over 80 degrees in a stress test like Prime95 rather.

 

Temp in FSX will be lower.

 

80 degrees in FSX is too hot.
