2500k overclocking help? - Page 3

post #21 of 35
OP, your temps are fine. I'm hitting somewhere around 80c with my Noctua D-14 when my 2500k is at 4.7GHz during IBT. (single fan, low speed)

At 4GHz, I'm somewhere around 70c.

where at? There seems to be two. One under AI tweaker (which appears to be turbo only) and Advanced in the BIOS under CPU Configuration>CPU Ratio.

Cool. Is there anything I should turn off? Like..AMD has a Cool N Quiet thing that youd want to turn off...does Intel have any little settings that should be turned off like that?

read those guides munaim1 posted. you actually want to leave EIST on with SB (SpeedStep is similar to "Cool N Quiet").

OP, try running the custom before running the blend, it will save you time.

I wouldn't bother updating your bios unless you run into issues, and there is a bios fix for it. Just because there is a new BIOS, doesn't necessarily mean you need it.

Usually to "run a .rom file" you can boot off a disk, and flash it to your BIOS. There is probably an asus utility to do it from windows too.

"1. Enable the support of Intel Rapid Storage Technology version 10.6.0.1002 Release
2. Improve DRAM compatibility
3. Improve System stability
4. Improve compatiblity with some Raid card model
5. Increase IGD share memory size to 512MB"

Thats the update to my bios. Its the only other one since release...and it sounds like it might behoove me to do it at some point.

Yeah, that sounds like a worthwhile update. You'll probably want to make sure you have that version of the Intel Rapid Storage installed, or grab it from the asus site, if you haven't all ready.
