What's going on with my i5 2500k? - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hyper N502 I used arctic Silver 5, but I did apply a bit much the first time around. Are my temperatures bad? I currently have no exhaust fan or bottom, just the top 200 and the front 200.

How do I check my current CPU speed and ram speed without rebooting into the BIOS? I rebooted and it shows now that my core voltages are at 1.3 and my ram is at 1600, cpu at 4000mhz.

Positive pressure (intake > exhaust) is bad, as it traps hot air inside.

Your temperature is really bad, because of max 98C when pushed. AS5 does need time for break-in, but even then 98C is simply too high.

Hyper N520?

Did you lower the voltage?

At this point I recommend you reset BIOS so you are back to stock speed. Then we work with you to OC it.

Thats a more reasonable voltage, cpu z will show you your current cpu speed in windows. It looks like you have Intel's power saving feature (I forget what its called, speedstep maybe?) enabled. If you run cpu z when your computer is at full load it should read around 4000 mhz.

Edit: Is the front fan an intake and the top fan an exhaust? That should move plenty of air for your setup smile.gif

Yea, Hyper N 520. And yes front is intake top is exhaust, I have a storm sniper.

Those temps are more reasonable but still a little bit on the high side in my humble opinion. I wouldn't try overclocking much higher until you get a more powerful cooler. The Hyper N 520 looks like a quality cooler but it only has 92mm fans so you may not be able to go much higher on it.

I think there is something wrong...I have heard people getting further with a hyper 212 and lower temps, is it because I added too much thermal paste?
post #18 of 32
No, the Hyper 212 is a budget cooler and probably at its limits but if you take your time with turning your OC you might be able to lower the vcore and get better temps. Also remember when stressing the temps are always going to be higher then daily real life scenarios.

It would be great if you show us your BIOS settings for the OC.

Well, the Hyper 212 is a bigger cooler. It uses one or two 120mm fans compared to the Hyper N 520's 92mm fans so it will have extra cooling muscle.

How much thermal paste did you put on? You don't want to use too much : ] People say about the size of a grain of rice but there are many many variables to consider.

Will do, also how do I check my cpu speed and ram speed after I OC it? Is it supposed to show up in CPU Z? Or can I only verify it in the BIOS.
