i5 2500k OCing help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so I just got my i5 2500k build done last night and been redownloading / installing all my crap that I have and now I'm looking to overclock. I already did the "auto tune" from asus and it brought it to 4.4GHz and I fixed my ram speed by upping the voltage on it to 1.65 from 1.50.

Just need to know if I can push it to 4.8 / 5GHz with my setup and if I should OC my ram.

Specs are below.

I would hold off on any further overclocking, as there have been reports of issues when hitting higher clocks. The difference between 4.4 and 4.8 is not large enough to risk it at the point, and I would wait until an established set of data and tests have been done before going any further.
