2500k strange problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
When I run prime95 at stock clock the processor still goes over 60c. Is this normal?

I'm using a p8p67 pro with the stock cooler.

I used the AutoOC in the bios and it bumped it up to 42x and the computer failed to boot in the bios saying overclocking failed? I've also gotten a couple blue screens, one of them was a MEMORY_MANGEMENT one. This is in a 600t case.

id say thats pretty normal, at least for the stock cooler. you should invest in a aftermarket cooler if you plan on overclocking. dont ever use the autoOC, it just stuffs things up. look up 2500k tutorials in this forum or on google theres tonnes. just follow the guides and you'll be a pro in no time. rule of thumb for SB - sandy bridge cpus, raise multi not bclks. along with vcore.

your welcome.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure I hadn't screwed something up somewhere. Those problems never really started until I tried to use the autoOC. I suppose I'll be ordering the dh-n14 this week and will go from there. Hopefully Corsair will come out with the new side panel soon and I can use a side fan.

Two words: stock cooler.
/thread


EDIT: No real need for a tutorial on how to OC an unlocked processor. That's like writing about how to use a water fountain or something equally arbitrary. Raise multi, test stability, repeat, add voltage for stability until you hit a wall and are no longer comfortable adding more voltage.

The NH-D14 is an exceptional cooler.
