New Build

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
First time going with intel. I just built my machine and overclocked my i5 2500 to 4.3. The only thing I changed was the multiplier. Ran Prime 95 for hours ,,temps 56 steady and v core around 1.256. Is this a good overclock? haven't tried going any higher yet.
thanks

is your i5 the 2500 or the 2500k, if its the 2500k it is the unlocked version of the chip and it will go up to or around 4.8 on air with a good CPU cooler. if its the regular 2500 then it wont overclock as well and will be limited.

it's the K. To go any higher should I change other stuff? I've only changed the multiplier nothing else?

Tried 4.5 but it crashed on prime 95. Temp was only 56 , That's just with the multiplier changed. Might try disabling speedstep and manually changing the v core to something?? I think it was aroung1.25 when i was running prime
