i5 2500k change questions! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I have a p8z68v-gen3 non-PRO version motherboard and i run my 2500k at 3.8 ghz almost 24/7 as it requires not much above stock voltage and the temperatures are pretty much the same, though I have in the past got my processor to 4.4 ghz fairly stable just using the auto-voltage and temps were well within tolerance, about 51 degrees full load (with a coolermaster v8). You should be fine with that processor and motherboard, i have a gtx 670 and the only game i've got a cpu bottleneck in so far is planetside 2 due to it being unoptimised as hell, you might have slight issues with crysis 3 and maybe other newer games as i have yet to play them, but it really is easy to overclock a 2500k, you can pretty much put it at 4.0 to 4.2 ghz without having to worry about setting voltage as it will usually only increase by a small amount. For 99% of games i can run it at stock 3.3 ghz and not experience any sort of bottleneck, i only run it at 3.8 usually due to stronger single core performance with some of the less optimised games like Supreme Commander 2.

It's normal since Sandy Bridge doesn't support PCI-e 3.0, it wont affect your performance at all unless you do 3-way with 780s or something crazy biggrin.gif

Yeah its normal, the gen3 motherboards support pcie 3.0 but you would need to drop an ivy-bridge cpu to support it. You're not missing out on much unless bandwidth is needed which would be if you're doing multi card setup 3+
