Yea its cool to be 4.8 GHz @1.32, but if your runnin 4.5 at a solid vcore with good temps, really no difference, especially in gaming. I got an extra 1 FPS in unigine from 4.5 to 4.8 lol. After playing around with the OC on the i5 2500k, i feel like you see greatly dimished returns above 4.5.
From what i saw a 2500k will OC better than a 2600k. But i could be wrong.

where did you see that? I have got the opposite feeling...
damn, it is very, very hot today here in sweden...my computer is burning...think I have to go with a "summer-OC" here instead. To 4.5 instead of the current 4.7.

Hello everyone,
I have also posted on another thread but I am not sure anyone is actually following it.
Here is my situation:

I have made a new custom build for the first time. It was also the first time I assembled CPU + Heatsink. I'm a bit suspicious about the temperature readings. When I assembled the heatsink I had some problems fixing it and I am afraid I might have unevened the thermal grease on the cpu.
My situation is this.
On idle my CPU temperature is between 37c and 40c. When I run some stress tests the cores reach from 62c to 74c. Even though the stress test loads all the CPUs, evenly, it appears that some cores are rather cooler than other (10c difference or a little less). Is all of this normal?

I am a bit annoyed by the fact that as soon as the CPU starts taking some load the fan goes nearly at 100% from the very beguinning. I have tried messing around with some of the fan control programs, with not too many results.
I have read in some different forums that temperatures could be related to voltage. I have no knowledge on that element. Which settings should I check?

Here is my build:
OS: windows 7
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 3.4 ghz
CPU Heatsink: CNPS5X (manifacturer page: http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Pr...ad.asp?idx=425)
Ram: 4gb
Mobo: Asus p8p67pro

-----------
Update:

I opened up the case and removed the heatsink.
gee, there was far too much thermal grease I guess. Some of it even spilled over to the sides of the CPU. I was too scared of unmounting the CPU for fear of messing up with the pins. I cleaned the cpu surface with some paper (metro ticket ;D ) as well as the surface of the heatsink removing nearly all of the grease. A very thin layer must have stayed on since I did't want to mess around with solvents over my mobo. I applied a small droplet of Arctic silver 5 on it and placed the heatsink back on.
Right now the system seems to be running at slightly lower temperatures on full CPU load. Average temperature at idle is around 36 C and at full capacity the temeperatures range from 69 to 62c according to the various cores.
Please consider I didn't allow the burn-in time of the grease to elapse.
I have read some forum concerning the voltage settings but I honestly did not understand anything of it .

Did I do something wrong again? Is there some settings I should change in the bios or in the MOBO overclock program concerning voltage?
Here are the current settings I have in Asus TurboV Evo:
Blck frequency 100,3 MHZ
CPU Voltage: 1.165v
DDR Voltage: 1.5v

Vccsa voltage 0.9250
Vccio voltage 1.05
CPU PLL: 1.8V
PCH Voltage 1.05

Please let me know what you think.
Thank you
