The CPU voltage control can mostly be found on the main page of your BIOS.
Once you go into CPU specific chances are that the voltage control can't be found there only speeds and such.

1.212v is very low for your CPU so don't think you need to lower it even further.
But since you say you're new at OCing allow me to state that low voltage = thumb.gif
The lower the voltage, the better for temps. But if you go too low you'll BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death).

When you get a BSOD check in the middle of the screen.
It should say something like 0x00000101. that number usually tells you what's wrong with your computer.
101 means the CPU voltage is too low ;-)

So have fun playing with the voltage if you want but if it runs at 1.2 then you're doing great!


As for your temps.
When running prime 69°c as your max temp is great.
As stated previously try to stay under 75°C
if it just reaches a peak of 75°c every now and again but doesn't really go higher then I don't think you should lower your OC since in real-life situations your CPU won't be under that amount of stress anyway.

Actually my voltage jumps to 1.308 on full load in Prime95. I think I was looking at it during idle or something lol. But I can't find ANY CPU-related voltage controls whatsoever and I did an extensive search in my motherboard's BIOS. I can only see what voltage it uses. I did a few gaming benchmarks, and my temps are 10-20 degrees lower than a full on torture test.

It probably has offset voltage setting. Look for that.

I did. There was not one to be found. The only thing I can do is see what voltage my CPU is using and it's greyed out.

just tested my 2500K@4.5 using p95 torture test
got a max of 58C and 1.325V havent touched any voltage yet just let it do its thing altho its winter here and only bout 15C ambient.
whats your ambient temps approx btw it does make a difference

My ambient temperature is 22 degrees Celcius. I think the high temperatures might be caused by a horrible mount and using too much thermal grease. I also accidentally touched the base of my Hyper 212 Plus and cleaned it off with 50% isopropyl alcohol without giving it enough time to dry. I'll reinstall the Hyper 212 Plus tonight and use just use a small dab of paste in the middle of the CPU instead of smearing it all over the base of the cooler

someone enlighten me on why we're trying to confuse the OP?
@OP, your 2500k can safely reach 98C..... but I recommend 75-80C, as stated above

Because tcase is what intel mention on their spec sheets.. Simple as that.

Make sure you clean it off again really well with the rubbing alcohol, and let it dry
What type of thermal compound do you have?

I just replaced the thermal grease that came on my H100 for Arctic Silver 5, and my temps dropped 3-5C

He's using realtemp to measure the tj max. Not the tcase....

You need to find intels recommended tj max. Not tcase.

What do you not understand?
You're doing it wrong.

What do you not understand?
You're doing it wrong.

Yep im doing it wrong as i never care for core temps and always used tcase for my readings as i been doing since lets say? (ALWAYS and FOREVER?) Or right we are able to read core temps 10 years ago right>? Even mobo probe readings were more awesome than core readings lol...

I like more tcase as intel recommended on the spec sheets..

lets see
http://ark.intel.com/products/52210

TCASE 72.6°C as a matter of fact that TCASE was put there for a reason and a reason only it was intended for noobs as simple as that..
You keep your temps below TCASE and you are rocking safely that cpu XD...

My 73c tcase is exactly 84c on the hottest core... Can you BELIEVE THAT???
XD

I dont know who to believe you or intel, yep im doing it wrong XD
