i5 2500k stock cooler

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just build my new sandybridge system and discovered how cool the cpu is, i used asus oc tuner and gt to 4.4ghz on stock cooler

unless u run prime 95 it never goes above 69C

had to point out tht it might not be necessary to invest into cooler if ur mild overclocker on sandy

Yea but it looks like crap and a cooler chip is a happier chip

I would advice against using the OC Tuner. Ai Suit is an extremely buggy program that frequently likes to warn me that my CPU voltage is at 0.0v. You'll get much better results if you manually enter the settings in the bios.

The Intel cooler is actually really bad. I'm glad you're happy with your results but 69c temps during normal use is not that great. What kind of temps do you get under 100% load? A $30 dollar cooler would bring those temps down quite a bit and allow you to get even more performance out of that chip.

Either way, enjoy your chip Glad it's working fine.

Wow you must have gotten extremely lucky. I had to turn off the turbo for my 2600k because it was going into the 90's on prime. Now that I got my H60 it is so much cooler and overclocked even more.

don't use ai suite to monitor your cpu temp. for me ai suite shows 10 degrees lower than it really is. Use RealTemp or CoreTemp instead.

Not bad to be fair on stock cooling but still would prefer to keep it cooler than 69 when gaming, grab a cheap cooler and be nice to it.

Pretty good overclock for being on stock cooling, though I would probably pick up a 212+ for some cooler temps regardless.

alot of people are having problems with the 212 on sandy and experiencing high temps because the cores are not centered on the sandy chip and the direct heat pipe technology does not work too well with it altho my A70 has the same tech but i get fine cooling. But probably better with a cooler with a flat base!
