i5 2500K 5Ghz - How long to run Prime95?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've got my i5 2500k running at 5ghz at 1.38v, I've had prime95 blend test running for 12 hours now. Temps are in the pic, how long should I leave it for?

Temps and voltage ok for 5ghz?

Nice overclock great voltage, I'm not sure about temps but it looks like it's not breaking 80C which should be fine (hard to see in the pic.) I would recommend using Realtemp or Coretemp to monitor temperatures as far as stress testing that is debatable what ever you consider stable 12 hours is fine.

Thanks I originally had it at 1.465v and that actually made temps spike to 91 so I immediately stopped prime95 and fixed things. Took me a little while but I settled on 1.38v, I may try going even lower and testing but I'm very doubtful it will get much better then that.

I have LLC set to "Ultra High", I'm assuming it's better to have LLC on for a stable overclock? Since from my understanding, it tries to keep the voltage relatively steady without too much fluctuation is that correct?

The max it went total for package was 82 degrees, 79 was the max that a single core went to.

I will look into getting realtemp or core temp though.

Nice, 5ghz at 1.38v. 12 hours is fine, you are good to go.

Simple answer, yes.

Right on! those are great temps for that cooler.

I'm sure there is nothing wrong with HWmonitor. Personally, I like realtemp but any of the three should get the job done! Well done, that is a great OC get a better cooler and push it MOAR!!!
