Over Clocked I5-2500k CPU to 4.5

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
my first time overclocking my computer i have got it to 4.5

Specs

Mobo - P67A-C43 (B3)
Cpu - Intel I5-2500k
Cpu Cooled - Corsair H40
Ram - 4GB
Video - Geforce 550Ti

here is the images from CPU-Z and the testing i did with temputures are these in range or are they too hot

For the closed line water cooling blocks, those temps seem right. Voltage seems okay at 1.3. Anything under 75 or so is good. CPU is not in trouble until you start seeing 90+.

can i go 4.6-4.7 if so what should i change

Yes, bump the voltage up as you go if it is unstable. Just keep temps under 90.

ok should i go little by little or just right to 5.0MHz and max the voltage

90c? i would keep it at maximum 75c,

those temps are pretty good too you could oc to 4.7Ghz and call it a day there's no way you need more than that unless you do heavy work.

No, never max anything out. Bump up the OC to what ever your goal is. I.e. 4.7 or 5.0. (You can jump to what ever the max is you want to hit, but I recommend going one step at a time and getting each step stable before going to the next oc level.) Then run a stability test. If it fails, then bump up the voltage another step. I.E. from 1.35 to 1.36. Repeat until 1 of 3 things happens.

1. You hit a stable voltage with good temps.
2. Temps are too high
3. It is not stable no matter what your voltage is.

Right, you want it as cool as possible. Just saying 90 or above is where you do not want to be. Personally, I do not like anything above 45. If it runs at 80 or so at max load, it will not be that hot hardly at all while running normal every day stuff.

Those temps are just right.. I also OCed my i5-2500k to 4.5Ghz before and have similar temperatures using a Corsair H50

ok so update i upped it to 4.7 and the volt was at 1.35 and it wont go any higher and i ran the program and is stable at 69c

Nice work. Welcome to a good stable OC club. I am sure there is a sandy stable club you can be part of. Not sure what the url to the thread is though. thumb.gif


Also, I suggest running prime 95 for at least 12 hours straight to test complete stability and whether it will hold at those temps......
