Overclocked i5 3570k 4.4GHz, good?

Hey guys,

First time overclocking so I didn't just jump in and do something I hadn't researched!
I did abit of work, looking at how to overclock using my motherboard, what to do etc, and I decicded to take the plung and go for it.


I just wanted to ask if this looks any good?
Any improvments which could be made?
Anything you would change?
Should I increase/decrease the clock speed/voltage?


Please put your 2 cents in and give me your opinions


Temps were at load (after 2 hours of OCCT):
Core#0 Max: 67c
Core#1 Max: 67c

Seems perfectly fine to me
If you want to check even more for stability and higher temps, use Intel Burn Test [20 runs] and make it use as much RAM as you possibly can and right click on start button in IBT and choose Xtreme Mode, My I7 3770k @ 4.6ghz 1.205v gets 70c in OCCT where as it gets 80c in IBT.

That's some really good volts for 4.4! My 3570k takes more than 1.25 volts to hit 4.4 and needs 1.21 to do 4.3... You might be able to push yours higher as the temps still look really good!
