Intel i5 2500k Overclocking specific help - Page 4

post #31 of 65
Oooo, yeah I wouldn't set it to ultra high, you'll just create excess heat, you're better off increasing the voltage a little more, at least that's my experience.

Definitely set to 50% and see what stable voltage is for 45, you're definitely headed the right direction by starting at a lower multi and working your way up little by little, it's time consuming but it'll be worth it in the long run.

Ok I'm still at ultra high but as I said in my last post but I edited it, I'm at a multi of 42 still at 1.315v max temp is 70C still on that Ultra high LLC though. I will change it.

So are these FFTS representative of gaming load or is it more?

It's pretty much just stressing the CPU, no RAM stress at all, which you'll want to do in the end as the mem controller is in the CPU and will affect stability of overclocks if you aren't supplying enough voltage for your multi.

Games will never load a cpu/ram as much as Prime95, BF3 is pretty much the only thing that comes close right now in my experience.

ok thanks smile.gif

So I have changed the LLC from ultra high now and I will put the multi as the same to check i recorded my temps which were;

Multi of 42 @ 1.315v (Ultra high LLC)

Max temps;

Core 1: 58
Core 2: 67
Core 3: 70
Core 4: 64

for small FFTS for 30 Tests.

Proves that lowering your LLC will drop temps
post #36 of 65
Yeah it definitely will, it's essentially allowing the voltage to fluctuate some, which causes temps to consistantly be lower.

VDroop can cause instability which is why the LLC feature is available on motherboards where overclocking is allowed so definitely don't set it to AUTO as most likely you'll have to increase your voltage too much to compensate and voltage will be all over the place.

Sounds like you're doing good though, keep us updated with your progress!

I will!

I'm going for a multi of 44 @ 1.315v right now and my max temp is 67C :O

I will leave it for a while! see ya

Thanks!

I will be back soon!

At 1.315v @ 44 multi I BSOD'ed so I upped the vcore to 1.360

as I went from 42 to 44.

So I am at 1.365v for a multi of 44, lets see how this goes.

Also you said this would be the worst case senario in terms of load? this wont happen in games as in temps wise or am I wrong? because 80c is to hot and I wont be running my cpu at that temp so what could be an option? should 80c be the maximum you would run the cpu at during prime 95 or gaming? I don't keep my comp on 24/7 and I only game a minimal amount (I do however create games with GB's of info at a time).

Also why does it only say between 0.4% and 1.0% load in Real Temp?

Those temps are bad at all, yes in gaming you shouldn't come near that temp.

I'm not sure about Real Temp as I've always use Core Temp, CPU-Z is another great utility to watch for load and real time voltage, I think you already have that though.

Also it could be that your thermals are too much for your chip (don't think so in your case) and it is throttling down the chip to keep it from overheating.
