I am a total noob at OCing, but this was my attempt with the 2500k.

I used all the settings as suggested on page 1, I left it on Offset to +0.005v. Turbo Boost to +0.004v. and went to 4.5GHZ. Anything after that started to get BSOD, so it seems 4.5Ghz was real easy and the sweet spot. I'm happy with that for now.

Can you please check if everything seems good in the picture? This was taken after running Prime95 for around 16 hours and then a run through of IBT on maximum setting.

Thanks very much.

Great effort but those Vcore volts look a bit high for long term usage.

Great guide! I did a safe conservative oc by raising only the multiplier of a i5 3470 on a Z77 board. Not messing with voltages etc. Your BIOS settings section was most useful. Could have done it without it but the convenience of having all information in one post is just outstanding.

Thank you for your work thumb.gif

Thanks for the reply.

What is a vcore that would be safer to run at, what should I be aiming at?

Thanks very much.

Everything looks good.

What is your Idle Vcore?

How long did you stress the OC with P95?

The Vcore is not too high for long term use. I have been running a higher Vcore for years.

The Vcore is not too high for long term use. I have been running a higher Vcore for years.

That's good to hear, because I tried to use a negative offset to lower the VCORE but then it would BSOD after a few hours.

CPUID HWmonitor is showing idle vcore as 1v.

I tested on P95 for around 16 hours, no problems, seems stable.

It seems the current settings are very stable and it just works, I'd rather not have to touch it if possible.

Thanks for your input.

I just OCed my 3570k for the first with the help of this guide (thank you very much), been meaning to do this for a while but did not get time to do it properly. I only did a green overclock because i do not want to push it too much(at least not yet). I OCed to 4.4ghz with default +0.005v and +0.004v Turbo Voltage and Im getting 30-35c idle temp and 70-75c on the prime95 test.
Im using a be quiet! dark rock pro 2 cpu fan and have 3 120mm case fans (front in and top/back out).
Seems really good to me but would pushing it further be worth it or should i just stick with this? Should i touch the vcore?or just leave them at +0.005v and +0.004v?

Edit: spoke too soon, gone up to 80-90c, need to vent some holes in the back of my computer desk because the heat has nowhere to go once it leaves my case

You pretty much did what I did. What is CPUID HWMonitor showing for your vcore, idle and max?
post #8659 of 8659
The idle vcore is showing up as 1.000v idle and 1.216v - 1.224v on max.
I might try to further OC it but i need to vent my computer desk first because my PC is sitting in a enclosed computer desk with nowhere for the air to leave. I took of the front door of the computer desk yesterday to at least give it some fresh air (which is why i thought it would be a good time to try OCing) but i need to do something about the other end.
