Hey bdizbmikuni, are you running ALWAYS at 4.5 ghz or just in turbo mode?
Sorry for the n00b question but i was having a really hard time overclocking my core i5 2500k yesterday.

I modified the Core Ratio and when the computer booted and i ran CPU-Z it showed 4500 Mhz just fine but after like 1 minute, the core speed went to 1600 mhz. I want to be running ALWAYS at 4500 mhz, is there any way of doing so? And if the answer is yes, what are the settings i have to modify in thr BIOS to get the job done.

Please help me guys! I want to get the best possible experience from my computer!
Thanks in advance

Disable intel speedstep and turbo and enter 45 for ratio and desire vcore and you'll be set.

yes it fits fine but might run a bit hotter.

FT03 will fit 2 gc with this board unlike my Z68A-GD55 the gene-z can fit 2 dual slot cards in there.

Wow, thanks for the quick reply kevink82, just one last question, what would be the vcore you suggest for 4.5 ghz overclocking? I have a closed loop liquid cooling system from Asetek
Thanks man!

Will depends on your chip so far all the 2600k i got clocks better with lower vcore than the 2500k. I would imagine somewhere around 1.3v with 75% load line calibration would be fine.

I have a 2500k running in my msi gd-55 atm with 1.28v for 4.5ghz with a h70 single gentle typhoon pull that hit 70 running prime95 blend for 10 hrs, havent try small fft yet.

How far can you take a 2500k with this board? I'm getting corsair's h80 for cooling. Can it hit 5ghz?

I simply changed the 1st setting which let you select 4.2 and 4.6, I went with 4.6 and all is flawless.

WHy would you do that? As soon as there is some work to do, it will run @ 4.5, it is very efficient. Useless to force it to 4.5 all the time.

Have 2x570 gtx zotac cards, running fine, just the first card runs about 5 degrees hotter than the bottom card, Have a fan running over them and you'd be fine.

i remember using the auto setting puts the vcore at 1.35v.

Some first gen board couldnt force constant clock thats the main complain, but if you do use turbo be sure to use offset mode so the vcore will decrease when its idling, otherwise you will be killing your chip faster by forcing high voltages on low clock speed.
