Hi all, just finished my new build with an i5-2500k, and I think I have a pretty good overclock on it, but I thought I would submit what I have done to make sure everything is safe seeing as how this is only my second overclock and my first on a Sandy Bridge. I am running at 4.6 GHz with a CPU-Z reported voltage of 1.272v. Voltage in BIOS is on auto with a negative offset of 0.04 to bring the volts down a bit to keep temps down. LLC is set to high. This has proved to be stable so far, running a full 24hr test now. Temps under Prime load no more than 63, hit 64 briefly yesterday running OCCT Linpack. So from what I have read these all sound like acceptable numbers, I just wanted to confirm that with people that have done this a lot more often than I have! Thanks.
