E5200 24/7 overclock?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
When is it safe to have a pretty good 24/7 overclock. I was hoping to atleast make it to 3.0 on my stock cooler but not 24/7. My temps now at 2.8 are at least like 35c idle and 52 load. will that be okay to leave as a 24/7 overclock. I also got it at 1.08 vcore

very nice , you could push to 3.0 with around 1.17v but that will be the limit of your cooling though

I would push it until I get to the temp limit on your cooler. So that would make it 60c ish on load? or maybe bit higher.

I got my wife's e5200 to 3.325ghz while throwing 1.3v blindly at it and on the stock cooler load temps never exceeded 65. That's pushing it though so I threw on a spare thermaltake v1 cooler I had laying around and now load doesn't go above 45C.

At some point I'll fiddle with the voltage to get it as low as it'll go stable but if you're not going to go above 1.3v I'm sure you'll be fine on the stock cooler.

coolers are not that expenisve. i would not recommend running ur CPU at any higher temp than u need to. OC on stock cooler is not a good idea in my opinion. u can do it, yes, but 50*C+ is more than most good coolers will ever let ur CPU reach. i wouldnt do that for a long period of time, like if u OC and play games, you may reduce the life of ur CPU, which is definately more expensive than a CPU cooler.

i have the Xigmetek Dark Knight. it is big (but fits in my ATX mid tower), not too heavy, really pretty looking and really worth the money. it has the mounting plate that goes behind the motherboard included. this helps brace the board and will prevent bending/cracking over long periods of time. my e5200 @ stock 2.5ghz runs at 22*C idle, 29*C load. the cooler hasnt broken 1500 RPMs and its max is 2200. i plan on running it at 3.2ghz or so. best yet, it costs. it costs $45. dont be intimidated by installing a cooler, its easy adn the dark knight was my first CPU cooler. after i got the HSF ready, it was a 5 min job and has a really sturdy mounting.

there are also cheaper coolers that do well starts at $25, but they dont ahve the extra mounting hardware and may not be of the same quality.

if u do get teh dark knight or another HDT (heatpipe direct touch), make sure u look up some guids on how to install them. try to fill the groves between the pipes with thermal compund and then instal like normal from there

Get an aftermarket cooler. They are cheap.

I just was playing around with the wife's and got a stable 2 hour prime95 OC of 3.75 (300x12.5) with 1.468bios, 1.424 actual voltage. Temps with the Termaltake V1 did not exceed 58C on full load. I think this chip is a crummy one too with a VID of 1.225. I was surprised it took as much voltage as it did. Yours will probably need less and will run colder with a decent cooler.

Yeah. I think I will bump it up to 3 ghz and than see what my temps are. Than go from there.
