Opinion Imput time!

Right now, I have been at 5ghz and 1.45v with my 2500k for around 6 months. Based off my mid 50s temperatures, I has some thermal headroom left. Given that Haswell-E is coming soon, and I will upgrade then, do you guys think it would be plausible or realistic to get a 5.1ghz 24/7 result? No real point other than Cinebench, Dolphin (emulator), and Kerbal Space Program. Worth the risk, or should I wait? It isn't my only computer, so no issue there.

I think it will be real tough to hit. But Good Luck

If your temps are in check... Go for it. This degradation business is overblown. Even if it occurs you just drop your clock till it is stable again.
post #7835 of 9534
Whelp, those enthusiastic replies, I will shoot for it. Given the clock, I will probs only go for Intel Burn Test, not P95, but at those speeds, who cares...

As an update, I now have a relatively stable 5.1 ghz with slightly less that 1.5 volts, around 1.48. Temps in low 60s, with Swiftech H220. I am only going to boost the voltage for stability if I experience issues, otherwise I am leaving as is. Crossing my fingers it doesn't fry.

Damn these are some nice temps you got there. I'm fighting to stay below 70* at 4,4Ghz with mugen 2. Gotta get a better cooler like H100i
post #7838 of 9534
You guys are nuts... 5.1ghz...Lol

I'm happy with 4.5ghz on my 2500k but I do only have a little dinky ITX asrock motherboard so I don't feel like frying the board just for a little more performance gain... Plus with being prime95 stable for a 36hour test I think I'll leave it where its at...
4.5ghz 2500k @ 1.296v...

Cakewalk, have you thought about using thermal pad and aux heatsinks to put on your VRMs? I did that to one of my mATX kevari boards, and it added 100-150mhz of potential.
