Preparing to OC, Temp question 2500k

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey guys thinking about OCing my 2500k on my Z68 Vpro to 4.5GHZ but i had a few Qs before I start regarding temps.

Im sitting idel at 31~33 degrees during the day (~28 at night) and when I tried P95 for >1hr max temps were at 41~44. I just tried a 5 run of IBT just to see what it was and temps went to ~47-49.


What im really trying to ask is will you ever see IBT temps in non-bench usage? I ask because when I run GTA 4 or FSX My max temps are at around ~44 but IBT really seems to generate heat.

Also for an OC at 4.5Ghz what temps should I be looking for?

I would just try to keep core temps under 70C at full load. I can go to 90C, but who want's that right?
I think that with H60 you shouldn't worry about it since I saw people OCing this CPU to 5Ghz on air with temps arround 70C full load so...

Ok sounds good, I just OC'ed to 4ghz and all seems fine. Im going for 4.5, what voltage should i be aiming for for safe 24/7 use? Would keeping it under 1.25 be safe?

Regardiing temps and voltages for that particular cooler and overclock, visit the Sandy Stable club and compare with others, table is sorted in different categories and can help you out

That would be more than safe, but I doubt it will be stable at that. You will probably have to bump it up a little, maybe not if you are lucky
Generally with intel processors you should try not to venture too far from 1.3V.
Don't know about your CPU specifically tho.

Ya seems like 1.25 was too low, I ran p95 and the 4th core keeps failing. I am a bit confused in the Dram Command mode, should that be set to 2 or 1?

I have this ram

I run 1.40 during load and hit 4.7, temps suck right now due to heat (custom loop in the mail). Anything 1.45 and less is fine so long as heat isn't an issue. Like someone else mentioned, go to the SB club and look at other setups and go from there.

As to command modes, doesn't make a huge difference, 1 is faster iirc.

1.45 even 1.5 is many peoples limit.

ok checking 2t right now, will bump the voltage a little and try again. Seems like most ppl with 4.5ghz or over have their vcore at 1.320.

Every time i try to bump the vcore to 1.30 and then save and restart the PC tries to boot, fails and then boots again with default config.

Any ideas?
