Overclocking 2500k to 4GHz with stock?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right now I am using my stock cooler for my i5 2500k, and right now it's at 3.7GHz with Voltage of 1.15V. I have been running it this way for about 3 weeks now and I have not yet experienced any crashes. Max temperature I've gotten with PRIME95 running are : 67-71. Is it a good idea to push it a bit more to 4.0GHz? Thanks

I had mine at 4 ghz on the stock cooler for a while. Would hit 90c under prime 95 but never went above 75c when gaming. I was happy with that until I got my cooler. So yes 4ghz on the stock cooler works out fine if your careful
