Question on my i5-2500k Settings @ 4.5 GHz

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Need your vast expertise.

Playing on my 2500k, loving it, like everyone else is saying.

I have it up to 4.5 GHz, been running Prime95 for about two hours right now, and it seems to be running great. Temps at 100% are between 52-60. Voltage reads out on CPUZ @ 1.056v. Does this sound normal for this chip at those speeds?

I have a Coolermaster Elite 430 case, with two intake fans, two exhaust, and a Coolermaster 212+ CPU cooler.

Everything SEEMS ok, but have heard a lot of negative comments about my board. I didn't think it was that bad, I know its no Sabertooth or other great OC boards, but it isn't bottom-barrel and it seems to be doing well. Just let me know your thoughts!

If PRIME runs fine no errors, you're fine...

Also, it's kinda weird that your voltage is that low...Actually, I think that might be a wrong reading...or you got the best chip ever...all in all, if it passes Prime 95 and the temps are OK, no issues!

Yahh, those voltage seems awfully low, did you set your voltage in the BIOS or was it a auto OC kind of thing?

Either way, run prime to see if there are any errors, its recommended to run for 24 hours to make sure the system is stable. Do keep in mind errors can show up even at 23 hours into the test.

Yeah, i found it strange as well. That's why I decided to post the validation just to see it. Probably a wrong reading. I set the volts to auto in the BIOS.

I will keep running prime for the night.

Mine says that too, not sure why. Thought someone else might be having this problem, couldn't just be me!

You need CPU-Z 1.57.2 because 1.57.1 reads the VCCIO volts.

Wierd. I'd check the voltage in BIOS in this case.

Here is the asus edition of cpu-z 1.57.2
Asus rog Cpu-z

EDIT: Well too slow it seems, well the same time really.
