Mine does 53x, many people around here seem to have chips that do 5Ghz or higher... Not sure I'd go off that "Approximately" list.

Yeah pretty much anyone can post with 50x multiplier, the real issue is, unless you have a golden chip, are you willing to put >1.4Vcore to stabilize the overclock? tongue.gif

What do you mean? If my 2500K won't go above 4.5GHz than buying a monster CPU cooler won't help.

That depends on how much CPU life I would be shortening. I'd like to keep my CPU for +3 years since when it gets too slow, I'm going to transfer it to my "study PC".

Which CPU cooler should I get than? http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ath=207_23_845

he is simply saying that going cheap on good cooling the first time around is a bad idea.

i originally went with the 212 plus... then i switched to the h60. which is putting the temps nearly 10c cooler on p95 tests.

You're not going to see hardly any difference in SCII performance, just FYI. I've got two 2500K rigs (one OCd and one not) and honestly I promise you will never see the difference, even in the most intense situations. Just my 2 cents.

Okay so I should buy 2500K first without any aftermarket CPU cooler and post 50x multiplier to see if it can overclock well and if it can than I should buy Noctua NH-D14 right?

BUMP.

Will that work? Is it possible to test how well my 2500K overclocks without aftermarket CPU cooler?

Okay I can't find anything in Google about testing how well 2500K overclocks without using aftermarket CPU cooler.

Since my 2500K would break if I try to post 50x with a stock heatsink.

So I think i have no choice but to choose which aftermarket CPU cooler to buy.

Which is better investment: Hyper 212 Plus or Noctua NH-D14/Thermalright Silver Arrow?

The H Series looks like better choice then dh-14 anyway ithink ill upgrade 2 & make the dh14 as spare baa .. waist $$ for sure ..
