auto oc vs manual oc on i5 2500k?? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
It doesn't matter what value you put there as long as it's high enough for your CPU to get juice from PSU/Mobo.
Mines set to 225/255/200 for no particular reason.
It just gives the Mobo/CPU more headroom to draw more juice.
So you can even put 1000/1000/1000 it won't matter.

Now I highly recommend you to start from lower than 4.9 since you are new to OC.
You should make around 4.4~4.6 completely stable.
Then you'll have an idea how your chip behave and acts.
Since going above 4.8 is most likely you need to adjust different voltage settings to make it stable.
Since higher clock does stress more on on-die IMC.
(You kind of have to know what this means or you aren't ready to go 4.8+)
So you have to know what each voltages do to YOUR system.
Before knowing that and just messing with the unknown voltages won't help you getting a stable system or even could damage the system.

i just run prime 95 for 1hour at 4.8 with 1.37v and the turbo boost power limit at 200/200/ 56. just by those settings, nothing more. it was stabled and everything looks fine. just 1 hour bc i went to bed so i stop the test and turn off my pc. now what im worried is that the max core temp was 78c. so now im thinking on return in the h 50 and buy another cpu cooler. like de noctua d-14 or c-14 or cosair h 80.
