MAX SAFE OVERCLOCK I5 2500K - Page 4

post #31 of 63
Thread Starter 
About what u were saying I don't have the money to buy a cpu every wear as u may do and I don't want to spend my money all the time in order to make intel founders reach, that's why I want to keep it for 5 years.

Ive had over 1.65v through my 2500k and run benches at over 5ghz, I have dragged my cpu through hell and back and it laughs and wants more...

IMO stay below 1.4v and your cpu will last for many years. Max temps from IBT will never be reached during normal everyday tasks such as gaming or even benching on the likes of 3dmark etc, Only IBT and prolonged use of Prime95 will take your cpu to max temps.

I have the extreme6 and the VRM's don't run hot. The board is supplying about .3v more than it's supposed to but even at 4.6Ghz everything is running relatively cool. I normally keep the board at around 4.2Ghz 1.2v and temps are around 55c (large FFT's) for the CPU and a bit warmer for the VRM's but again nothing to worry about. It's a budget board, it will do just fine at anything around 4.6Ghz or or lower for daily use.

The VRMs wouldn't get hot on the Extreme6 because it's not using terrible MOSFETs, unlike the Extreme4.

last I heard they use the exact same mosfets, there are many users here on OCN (that own gigabyte boards and have said exactly this)..

I guess this issue blew out of proportion due to the gigabyte boards being more or less priced the same as the Asrock extreme boards and a few users decided to bash the product for having inferior parts vs. what gigabyte offers.

I still say you guys are too conservative. thumb.gif

Here's an actual list of a ton of motherboards and their power delivery components.

The extreme6 is good. The Extreme4 is the one that sucks.

I wouldn't say it's too conservative on an Extreme4, but on a good motherboard, you have a point.

Gotcha, thanks for that find.
