Cool, your temp is my dream one. My temp is usually around 35 - 37"C on Idle, and 85"C for full load (LinX 10 rounds - i7-377k, H100, OC 4.5ghz daily). Try to oc more plz
That's about average for the 3770, I have the same setup as you and have about the same max temps at 4.5 Ghz running prime 95 for 13 hours, The 3570 tend to run a little bit cooler, maybe due to the lack of HT.

As long as the CPU stays below 90C you're fine. I personally don't like turbo as it uses more voltage that the CPU would require for a certain speed, but they are still within specs.

Overclocking will always decrease the longevity of hardware, but most people upgrade well before that happens, I still have a fully functional P4 system that I built in 2003 and ran overclocked for a while. unless you overheat the CPU or put way too much voltage into it, your CPU could last 20 years overclocked.

Hey all,

I just set up the turbo boost on my motherboard to overclock to 4200mhz on my i5-3570k. I'm not very experienced with overclocking, but after some googling around I got some different information regarding safe voltages for this processor.

I was wondering if anyone had any input if these were stable temperatures and voltages for my processor (and gpu, it's the 670 FTW with the FPS Target set to 60, ussually OCs to just under 1200mhz when playing games).

Also, is there any sort of extra wear and tear that goes along with overclocking my components to these speeds/temperatures/voltages? Will it decrease the longevity of the components?

Here are my hwmonitor readings after an hour of Planetside 2 maxed out:
