Do I just have to OC it to see if its a special chip?

You just got to overclock then test overclock and test until it is unstable

I plan on getting that, would that be able to cool my CPU well to get at least 4.7ghz? rolleyes.gif

A buddy of mine has just barely hit 5GHz on his 2500k using a Corsair H100. Although I truly believe traditional water cooling methods are more sufficient and efficient, the closed loop H100 is obviously holding up, all for a whopping $120.

I am currently at 4.8GHz on my 2600k. If you have an ASUS mobo and the ASUS Suite II app, use it to OC it to "extreme" and you should hit 4.6GHz easily by the click of a button. From there, you can go back into ASUS Suite II and adjust the settings manually in increments until the system becomes unstable. Then re-adjust accordingly.

Tinker.

I know plenty of the Asus enthusiast boards have auto OC settings that are robust enough to take you to 5GHz. You'd just have to keep everything including Voltage on Auto and pump the multiplier to 50.

I wouldn't recommend it as a permanent method considering (1) the auto functions tend to apply far too much voltage, and (2) they won't warrant stability as well as digging into the BIOS manually will. But trying a 50-multi on full auto will give you an idea if 5GHz is at least possible for your chip, as long as it boots into your OS.

Most 2500k can reach 4.5-4.8 easy special chips can reach 5-5.3ghz easily
