i7 2500k overclocking help with voltages

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
You guys can see my build below, but basically I really dont want to fry my 2500k. I built this computer because I blew up my x58 system with too high of an oc (NOTE: I did not literally blow it up with the CPU. I fried it, and in troubleshooting, I received a new psu, which blew up in my house, wrecking the system.) I have it at 3.9 ghz with everything on auto, no problem, I reused my water cooling from the last system, and this cpu is perfect. Never passes 40c. I am kinda new to overclocking, so if someone could please tell me a general voltages to start off from, and what voltages never to pass, or if someone feels comfortable just saying what voltages I should have them at for 4.2 ghz.

Thanks

Thanks for the guides, I guess ill just have to find the voltages on my own. What program can I use to find the voltages my processor is running at?

This CPU should never go above 1.52v
That being said it normally takes less that 1.4v to get 4.5Ghz

Oh and leave the bclk on 100.0 and just up the multi to x45

here is a great guide: http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...ro-owners.html
