People with 2500k's @ 4ghz

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Do you guys have decent aftermarket cooling or stock, because ive lurked around places and it says 4ghz can be achieved with stock cooling.

Oh and what temps did you get (from stock and after market cooling)

I found the stock cooler good to ~1.25v, depends on your ambient and the proc itself.

I have my 2500k @ 4.5GHz and I run it 24/7 like that. My cooler is the H60 which works pretty well. I just finished playing COD:BO for about an hour and according to Core Temp, the hottest it peaked at was 62 degrees. Not super chilly, but then again it was over 100 degrees outside today and is still very toasty in my room (no a/c). I never touched the stock cooler though.

just out of curiosity, would you prefer the h60 or the noctua nh-u12? (performance wise)

Assuming one can reach 4.0 on stock voltages, I think stock cooling would be fine. I have it at 4.0 as of now with a hyper 212 that goes from 50-55.

Yep i have the same setup. I do get a few degrees cooler by adding a 2nd fan in push pull across the radiator

I had my 2600k at 4GHz with the stock cooler for about 2 weeks. Temps were fine as long as I didn't feel like running IBT.

For a 4.0GHz overclock you hardly need to up your voltage. Since voltage is the main contributor to heat i think you can run it with a stock cooler. But it all depends on your cpu and the voltage it needs.
