Gonna try to get my i5-2500k to Stable 5 GHZ

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Im at 4.5ghz right now pretty stable, ran prime95 and intel burn test on standard and high and my temps never went above 54c. I have an H80 cooling it so should I be able to make 5ghz, if so, at what voltage.

Give 1.45 V a shot.

Well what voltage are you using for your current overclock? How long did you run prime95?

As Bio said work your way down from 1.45v

If your @ 1.336V's, then I bet you can get to 5Ghz @ 1.3750's - 1.4V's. But, keep in mind don't let temps get over 80C, and getting that High of overclocks really do require more votls the higher it gets, and in bigger increments the farther the Ghz go up.

If you are stress testing, it's OK to go over 80c.
you'll probably see a big vcore jump around 4.8~5.0.
So don't be surprised you actually need more than 1.45 to get to 5.

My advice is work your way up from where you have it now. Increase the multi and test with prime blend, continue doing so until you get a bsod the bump the voltage up by one and continue testing. Try and keep an eye on you temps.

Also visit the sandy stable club for overclocking, voltage, temps and cooling reference.

prime 95 for 3 hours with no errors at 1.380v. the max average temp of all cores was 60c. I am running my h80's 2 fans as intake as corsair suggests, would I get better temps as push/pull or exhaust? Gonna try to go up to 4.8ghz by tommorow when i get time. Might let prim95 run all night to be sure.
