post #1471 of 1985
hi guys fellow sandy bridge users,
i have a question concerning my i5-2500k. there's this game i've been playing (Planetside 2) which is very cpu intensive. Higher clocks give you more frames. basically my question is whether I can use a 5ghz overclock with 1.450 vcore (1.5 vcore load prime 96) often with this game. I don't cpu bench or anythign like that and when I'm not playing Planetside 2, I revert back to stock clocks. Can I safely use my i5-2500k at 5ghz daily for an average of 3 hours a day playing Planetside 2? Will it damage my chip?
Thanks! thumb.gif

I didn't know Planetside 2 was that serious... rolleyes.gif
post #1473 of 1985
yep it is. i see a 10 frame increase, give or take, from stock 3.3ghz to 4.7ghz

so.. what do you think? would it be bad for the chip to go 5ghz? just for planetside 2

it's not worth going over 4.8GHz period unless benching, gaming higher clocks is a waste.
I run @ 4.4 and 4.5GHz respectively.

you need to go SLi with your GTX 680's, that's what your issue is..
post #1475 of 1985
I've had 1.52V for 5GHz... I played a looooot like that.

It's also a matter of temp. I never got higher temps than 60-65°C while gaming IIRC

But because I folded at that time, 1.52V with 5.0GHz was a no-no tongue.gif

So now I'm 24h tested stable at 4.6GHz with 1.395V

So yeah, go ahead if you have decent cooling!

it is not a waste with Planetside 2, specifically. I guarantee it.

anyway, don't think about that..

i just would like to know whether it is bad for the health of the chip to play on 5ghz 1.5 vcore full load for an average of 3 hours a day. I'm trying to differentiate whether it can handle it or not, since it is just a game and not a stress test.

IMHO, 3 hrs a day @ 1.50v will shorten the life of your chip. How much? I don't think anyone can say for sure.

they do seem a tab high.. i would expect around 50*C with that cooling set up and OC.. might be just becuase IBT runs hot!

hey ASUSfreak. I have decent cooling (watercooling) and I don't go above 60-65c when I game on 1.5v 5ghz.

when you say you played 5ghz on 1.52v aloooot, how long for? smile.gif

and have you noticed any degredation? bumping of volts, etc?
