Poor perfomance from i5-2500k - Page 3

Just exchanged my CPU at microcenter. Gotta go back to work but I will update what happens when I get home.

If you can even believe it this processor is WORSE. I am SO frustrated right now, just my luck to pass in a terrible i5 to receive an even worse one. It sucks 1.375v at 4.3 so I guess the new culprit is the motherboard which I do not have the money to replace right now. I already cut up the box for the bar code to get my rebate so returning or exchanging is not an option. So I guess for now I am just going to have to live with a 4.2 stock turbo overclock until I can buy a new motherboard. I'm done spending hours on this. Very frustrating, expecially when I thought I was getting a great over clocking motherboard.

Sorry to hear that bro frown.gif Yeah, seems like its the motherboard. I've already OC'ed mine to 4.5GHz without much effort and it seems to be stable at 1.30v. Hope your next mobo will be a good one! Don't worry though, 4.2GHz is not bad at all, better than stock at least smile.gif

And also, CoreTemp shows VID and not Vcore. They're not the same thing.

Well this could be a game changer. VID is supposed to be Vcore but does not show correctly on the new Intel chips (at least that's what I have read so far). If I disregard the VID in core temp I am able to boot this chip into 4.3 with 1.35v set and I haven't tried to go lower. Just disabled LLC to see if 1.35v by itself could boot my system and it can so this may be it! I will keep lowering until failure now. Thanks for the heads up about VID metroidslayer.

*EDIT* Got over excited can't even get 2ghz higher by setting to 1.38

Have you tried leaving the voltage on auto? 1.38v also seems a little to high for that clock speed IMO. VID is the stock voltage intel suggest the chip should run at, this doesn't reflect the actual vcore.
