n00b overclocker...Sandy Bridge 2500K HELP!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have a UD3P Gigabyte board with P67 chipset. I used gigabyte's utility to overclock and overclocked it to "level 3". Here are a few qustions:

1- Is it safe to use gigabyte;s utility and push it to level 3 like I did?

2- My computer shows running at 1500 Mhz sometimes! Why is that?

3- When I run windows experience assesment, the temps go upto 50 in speedfan....are those safe temps?

4- Why is my WEI only 7.6? I had a phenom 940 before and it had a WEI of 7.3....so that means Sandy Bridge is only SLIGHTLY better than a Phenom 940? I have seen other people report a much better WEI than 7.6 even with their i7 920's.

5- Are my voltages etc safe?

You can see the specs on the attached graphic. Please help a n00b overclocker! ....lol not exactly an overclocker i'm just using the utility to overclock.

2- Thats speedstep, it lowers clockspeed to save energy, and when you do something with your pc it goes back up again.

3- good temps

4- the wei score looks right since 2600k gets 7.8. the max is 7.9
but i think wei is crappy rating

I think WEI is logarithmic or something, 6 to 7 may be the same percentage of speed gain as 7 to 7.4.

Anyways, WEI sucks regardless.
