My first OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

My old computer died last month and decided to build my 1st computer in about 10 years.

Decided on the i5 2500k with a gigabyte z68x-ud4-b3.. I was just wondering what would the safest speed for me to go with a stock headsink? Right now I have it @ 4.0ghz and its running pretty good at 28C off load and I've seen it hit 60C before..

I'm completely n00b at this so any help would be great.

Thanks!!

Like I said, I'm totally noob at this stuff. I'm just using the software that came with my MB (EasyTune6) to overclock it.

i do not recommend using software to overclock due to stability issues. always use the bios if possible.
