i5-2500k OC with Sabertooth P67?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey I was thinking about buying an H50 for overclocking my intel i5-2500k with my Sabertooth P67.

I honestly want to get to 4.5 GHz at least, but I heard I could hit 5 easily. I was wondering what I would be able to do with the h50/60/70 and what settings would I have to have it at, like volts and such. I'm new to overclocking so if you could keep it simple that would be awesome!

Also I'm on the UEFI bios with some ASUS boards if that matters.

Thanks!

Depends on how good of an overclocker you got. With lower volts I've seen 4.8Ghz to 5.0ghz with and h50 and h70.

Well, what kind of temp should it be at? I honestly don't know much and I want to know what's a safe temperature so that I can still play games, etc.

Also what do you think would be a stable volt, I don't want to screw up or anything.

Another question, how would I be able to test if my overclock is stable, I've heard of people running some software for 2 hours to test it, but I could be wrong.

I picked up the Sabertooth P67 and 2500k yesterday and started overclocking it today. I'm sitting with 4.8 @ 1.39v, it runs normal tasks at 1.32 but locks up with benches.

I was able to hit 5GHZ @ 1.43 but I have no intentions of keeping it there for daily use.

For cooling I'm running a Swiftech 240mm and 120 mm radiator with the XSPC block, idle temps are 29-33, load temps are mid-high 50's. (peaked at 64c @ 5ghz)

I do not think the H50 will be able to sustain under 70c with much over 4.5-4.8 unless you've got a golden chip that will take low volts.

Dark what all did you change to get 5ghz and was it stable?
