[Appraisal] Intel Core i5 2500k @ 5.0Ghz 24hr Stable @ 1.36V - Page 4

post #31 of 34
call it good and post it up @ 250-300$ what ever you think is fair and then work your way down to 220 lowest you will go ... the worst thing that can happen is you do sell it LOL smile.gif might not be 300 or this magical 600$ u keep saying (i know would be nice two have two free chips....)

keep in mind u have to get the 600$ for it to be worth 600$...

To the guy that's saying $150, I've never seen a 2500k below $180, even if it's a total crapper.


I know this is an old post, but it is total nonsense. I have seen people sell their 2500Ks for 140 dollars and lower. I have noticed that people on OCN sell their stuff at higher prices too.

All of you are right. The fact is that to most people, this cpu is worth the normal, used 2500k price. BUT, there are people out there who will pay significantly more than retail for a chip with proven overclock potential. Whether you agree with it or not is besides the point, I've seen it happen. Most people dont have the means to properly cool a 5.5ghz+ cpu for suicide benching runs, thus the market is small. But it does exist. That being said, 1155 prices are creeping down so could this chip still be worth 500$ or more ? I kinda doubt it. Could it be worth quite a bit more than a bnib retail chip ? I certainly believe it's possible. The undeniable fact of the matter is that it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay.

With mine I can hit 5.56GHz in windows under water. Boot's with 5.7 but can't get into windows. Someone else needed the same voltage as me and could only boot with 5.4.

It's this.

5000 w/ 1.36v stable might indicate speeds like 5500 w/ 1.60v for benching, or way more.

Mine booted and did Windows stuff at 5400 w/ 1.45v, benched high load w/ 1.47v and I couldn't much more than that due to air cooling (could have been stable like that for all I know).

It almost went for ~$350 in a private sale here, then I put up a listing on another board and got $315 for it in one day. There were also plenty of lesser offers; $300, $100 + NIB 2500K, stuff like that.
