Is there a comprehensive guide for overclocking the core i2500k or similar cpu?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have only overclocked an i5 750. This was the first time I did anything like this. I found a really good guide on those particular cpus. I went through everything on oc'ing. Separating the b'clock from RAM etc.....

All I am finding, on the 2500k, is people just upping the multiplier and adding to core voltage with few other changes. Is it really just that easy? If so, is there a quick list of other setting for uefi bios that we should consider? I can't really find a good guide....

Most of the setting I am seeing are for the Asus P8P67-XXX boards. My board is basically the same, but with the z68 chipset.

Scroll down a bit in the first post and you'll see the guides section.

I actually went through this and found a lot of useful info. Just set up for 4.8 ghz using one guide, but modifying it a bit. The guide I used had the c1e support and power saving on. I have disabled that as I know that it can mess with oc.

The pc booted up. I am about to start stressing it and making adjustments. I can't believe how easy it was...... We will see.

Ran for 5 hours in Prime 95, then one of my cores failed. Here is an attachments with my screens. Found another guide to try out.
