Hi have some question regarding my latest OC.
First here is my system, MOBO - msi mz170a pro carbon RGB RAM - gskills 2400mh (8x2) 16GB GPU - MSI 980 TI PROC - i5 -6600k PSU -Seasonic 620w cooler - h110i GT
First , I did some research and downloaded tools like CPU-z, HW monitor and Cinebench 15. 6600k at stock settings has a temp of 30-31 on idle mode. I think that's fine considering its warm on my country. I ran cinebench before doing OC and temp got to 39 at max. After that, the time has come and tried my first OC xp. I'm thingking if will start with 4ghz first since its my first but rather I just go with a 4.2 at 1.225v. Reboot pc started test and my normal temp is around 35-36 and looks stable. Then I changed 1.225 to 1.2v and ran normal test is almost the same. Ran cinebench and max temp is around 49-51 with 35 being idle.
I already played 1 game of dota 2 and its has been stable. Right now im running on 4.2 with 1.2v. Question, should I still try 4.3-4.4. I want to lengthen the life span of my hardware. Also should I try to reduce the 1.2v? or should I just let it as 1.2v as standard.
Please advise and share your thoughts. Thank you
