i5-2500k temps

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've recently overclocked my system and been tweaking it for a while to stabilize it. 4.1ghz oc and been running the prime95 for 10 hours without any errors so far, but I'm no expert when it comes to temps and stuff, so I thought that perhaps it's time to get an expert opinion.



Idle temps.



Under load temps, these however are not the highest temps I got. Highest were 70-77 max.

What cooler are you using?

Corsair h60.

I feel like that sounds right using prime for that cooler... But I feel like realistically you could hit 4.5Ghz and the temps would max mid to high 70s.

I become a little wary when I hit around 74ish.

I for one have not used coretemp before either so I don't know its reliability compared to realtemp. I'd DL it and see if the temps differ. If not, I'd try and just keep it around that clock and maybe adjust your vcore and try and go as low as you can for that clock.

I think the reason your temps are (relatively) high, is that you are running a pretty high voltage for that overclock. You can probably get something closer to 4.5 with the 1.36~1.37V you are running. Or, if you are happy with the speed, you can probably drop you volts down pretty significantly - at least to 1.3V and probably lower. Most 2500Ks will do 4.1 on stock volts. That would drop your temps down significantly. But Prime95 or IBT temps into the mid-70s are fine, since you won't get anywhere near those temps in normal use.

I'm on 1.23c atm, but don't know what's the voltage range minimum and highest?

Your screenshot shows 1.37, so you've dropped it down from there? As for min/max, the min is whatever gets you stable and is, of course, going to vary by chip and speed. The max most people feel comfortable with is around 1.4V, but there are still lots of people that run 1.5+ to get really high clocks. It's really whatever you feel comfortable with though, as Intel doesn't release a max safe voltage. Temps play a big part of that as well, as higher voltages can lead to significantly higher temps.

If you can get 4.5 at 1.35V (or there about), I'd be pretty happy with that.

You might wanna look again tongue.gif my screenshot doesn't show 1.37. I've been using 1.23v for 3 days now.

As for overclocking it to 4.5, I really would like to do that, but I'm just too scared that it won't work, I mean look at my temps they are already high even with a low oc.

Blah, my bad - reading CoreTemp by mistake. In that case, those temps are really too high for that cooler and voltage. Are you sure the pump is running 100% (on either a molex connector or a fan header that is at full speed)? Have you tried turning up the fan speed on the radiator? Tried reseating the cooler? 1.24V at 4.1 should have temps, I'd think, down in the high 50s to low 60s with that cooler.

look at ur VID. how are you changing your voltages, do you have LLC turned on? it might just be the high spikes that makes it hot or something like that.

PS. I'd probably check how well it's seated. I had the H60 + i5 at some point early this year//last year and it wasn't the best but was doing 4.4GHz at the same temps at ~1.36v (maybe they were my h100 temps though, I changed it up very quicky at that point so I can't remember tbh.
