Totally new to SB. 2500k and p67 pro3. Am I doing it right?

As on the screen.
I am completely new to SB. My previous cpu was e6300 on p5n-e sli which was 1,86 and I was running it at 2.8 for 5 years stable. Just needed to have vcore lowered to 1.3v...

But this is something else here. First off - the Bios is colorful biggrin.gif and there are plenty of more voltages, offsets etc. I never ever oc'ed by multiplier. only by clock. but to the point - What I did for now:

YES - stock cooling. I am out of thermal grease so I can't install my dual fan spartan silentium pc cooler.

Basically what I did is, restore all UEFI settings to default and only changed the multiplier on all cores to x42 tongue.gif It's silly.
Not touched ram, vcore or anything.
I have 2x4gb kingstone 1.5v 133mhz ram but that asrock mobo tells me it is set automaticly to 1.59v.. should I change it to 1.5v or does it need to be higher with oc?

The pc is working. prime95 is stable. temps are never more than 94C in 100% prime95. What are safe temps on 2500k anyway?

So, should I change vcore, ram voltage or anything else on that mobo? If so, then how and what does option means. Thanks for help and sorry for another topic like this. I've tried searching on google for some time but in each topic, everyone is like :"F You buddy. Google it. There are plenty of tutorials !" and guys are linking to some general cpu tutorial like I never had a cpu before rolleyes.gif

I remember ocing my 300mhz pentium to 333. so extreme tongue.gif

OK

Well the first thing you do is go into your UEFI Bios which replaced the AMI bios. You reset everything back to default because you're gonna burn your processor. Stock cooling is fine for stock especially with these processors.

Second of all, the motherboard will pump miles too much vcore through, you can drop that down as well.

Lastly, there are a number of good stickies with guides on how to overclock the 2500k.

That's one for starters biggrin.gif

Voltages are fine, but the temperatures are way too high. I wouldn't even bother with overclocking until you have an aftermarket CPU cooler.

thanks. So stock coolers really suck eh ?
I will wait for thermal grease or even new cooler then

They are SHOCKING! But to be honest they are designed to cool stock processors.

Not sure about that cooler you have to be honest though,.

I would flip out if my 2500k was over 70C.... let alone 80 and 90C...

Get one of those closed loop coolers like an Antec 620 or Corsair unit. They're going to give you the best temps for the price. Especially when they go on sale.

$50 and you should be around 65C with it.

I have this:
http://www.silentiumpc.com/spartan-he923/?lang=en

I will check how it does and then if it will be weak I will try macho or antec kuhler 620(or corsair)

Tried lowering multiplier to 40 and I still hit 90C with prime... even with side of the case removed.
2000rpm on stock cooler. 1.31voltage (automatic)

just wow. I need thermal greases fast tongue.gif

What is funny is that my c2d e6300 2.8 was over 55C on idle and never above 70C .. that is on stock.
Seeing how thjis is below 40C on idle I was not expecting temps to overdouble

Lol,

All the pages I can find are in polish, which might not be a good thing... I'd say mount it, see how it fairs but be prepared to replace it.
