Feedback/Suggestion for i5 2500k OC stats

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, first time poster here biggrin.gif

I read through the forums and OC'd my new pc. Quite fun actually.

Here's my issue:

I have an asrock z68 ex3 gen3 i5 2500k and a coolermaster 212

my current multi is 46 with +0.005V and has been running stable on prime95 for a couple of hours with temps around 66~67C and VCore at 1.270.

I was wondering if there's any way I can take advantage of my low VCore to reduce the CPU temp I'm experiencing. I'd love to stay under 70 as summer weather is around the corner and I'd hate to have my temps spike so I want to have a nice buffer room for such. With my fans on max, I can chop the temp down about 3~4C.

What would you guys suggest as a way to get lower temps?thumb.gif

You can try underclocking it to maintain stock speeds. That, or get a better cooler.
