What is an easy yet stable Overclock for i7 2600K?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I just got my i7 2600K CPU build and would like to know what settings i should punch in to the motherboard to get a decent OC. I know all the chips have different capabilities, but what is the highest OC that every i7 2600K should be able to do without too much hassle? I don't want to be doing any stress tests, so I'd really appreciate the details of a common OC that will definitely be stable straight from go.

I was hoping for 4-4.5GHz at least,. Do you think this is achievable?

Many thanks for any help in advance.

4.3-4.5 at or near stock voltages should be stable and easy...

Thanks man. I'm ok with increasing voltages and have done this before, i just would like a confirmed stable reasonable template for me to adhere to. I'm selling it on you see, and he wants it real soon, so i don't have any time for multiple 3 hour stress test to make sure it's 100% stable.

I'd appreciate if anyone with an AIR COOLED i7 2600K could post their voltages and OC etc. to give me some guidance smile.gif.

+ rep to all!!!

Probably too late, but because no one answered you, I'll revive this;

Yes, it is quite a good board, I currently am running;

Ya, I have a HORRIBLE chip, but I can still easily hit 4.5GHz @ around 1.35VCore. I'd go for that.

i see alot of people running 4.2-4.5Ghz at stock voltage or with a very slight voltage bump. that should be a breeze for ya.

Have you seen the spreadsheet at the beginning of this thread?
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/968053-official-sandy-stable-club-benchmarks-stable.html

You can sort by chip and cooler type. I have a couple 2600K's in the house. One does 4.8 using 1.35v with a Silver Arrow, and the other is not as good, it takes 1.35v to hit 4.5 using a Megahalem and two AP-15's attached.

What have you tried so far?

stock voltage is 1.192v, nobody is running over 4.2ghz at or very near to that.

Id say up to 4.2ghz stock, 1.25v-1.35v for 4.2-4.6, and then 4.6ghz+ would be 1.35+

i think thats about average
