i5 2500k can't even surpass 4.1 - Page 5

post #41 of 102
100% agree on a CPU remount with new thermal paste. Clean those fans too ..possibly look into a dust filter on your intake if you get that much dust.


You should be able to hit 4.6GHz on a 2500k with a decent cooler ..im using a h100 which you could probably pick up used on ebay for 50 bucks.

Don't touch any settings in bios
Except manual overckock, change multiplier to 42 and set voltage at 1.25v manual and put LLC at 75% or ultra.
Save a reboot
Test with prime95 report temps and results

what u mean by tmi?

just for the sake of testing with the same v core i tried with 44 multiplier and this time i was able to logged into windows unlike earlier it's always bsod even before win logo shows up . And now when i tried prime95 ,bsod instantly.

So below is my current settings with everything just multiplier is 43



Spred spectrum is disabled



here multipleir is 43...

 

Again, you need to clean your computer before you continue trying to overclock. I know that it would be a project, but that much dust is not safe!

 

ALSO, as I said before, you need to remove your Hyper 212 and make sure to PROPERLY apply thermal paste as shown here:

 

http://archive.benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=150&Itemid=62&limit=1&limitstart=5

 

So again, you need to go back to stop (you need to stop trying to overclock) and instead you first need to clean your computer and all of your fans - AND THE HYPER 212'S HEATSINK, and then you need to remove the Hyper 212 and make sure to get those gaps filled in with thermal paste.

 

If you don't do these two things, then you will never get anywhere.

He means TIM, which stands for Thermal Interface Material. You can also call it thermal paste, thermal grease, thermal compound, or "that goo". lol Whatever works. :)

in the mean while i am gonna search which thermal paste to use noctua nt h1 or artic silver 5 or coolermaster.
and when my system is ready for OC will bump in again.

You're welcome.

 

I have a confession to make, and it really depresses me to even admit this. I haven't cleaned my computer in over 2 years. Why? I guess I don't really have a good excuse, other than it's been so long that I know it's going to be a nightmarish project now. I used to clean out the dust once a week.

 

Now fortunately, I am anal about keeping our floors vacuumed. I do my bedroom's floor every single day, and I do the rest of the house about once every 2-4 days. I also don't smoke, so my computer isn't as dirty as it otherwise could be. I also have good airflow and dust filters. Still... good god. The work that this cleaning is going to be...

 

Edit: Wait.... come to think of it, I think it's been a lot longer than "over 2 years". Yikes. This is when dust becomes permanent and needs to be wiped off with water or something like that. If you keep on top of it though like once a week, then it can really just be blown off.

 

Actually, dammit, I probably have enough time to do it today because I'm in the middle of doing a heap of laundry and I won't be done for several hours. Hmm... It would feel extremely good to finally get it done and then I will be able to stay on top of it once again.

 

Edit #2: Yep, I'm kinda preparing to clean my computer now. I don't know how far I'll get because I've been up for a long time, but hey.

Just because one CPU that's the same model as yours can do X Ghz at X voltage, it doesn't mean all CPUs of that model will. Some will need far more voltage, and of course some won't need as much. The best you can do is, experiment, get to know your CPU, find out what it can do.
