normal?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm new to the whole OC'ing thing. I picked up a 2600K and heard it was so easy that there is no point in not OC'ing. So I did! My first was up to 4.0

I achieved cpu load by rendering a video from cs5 (a daily task for me) I havn't run any benchs. But seems stable for my daily tasks.....

I'm using a CM V6GT cooler. My temps haven't increased at all from my 4.0 overclock!

So how are things looking here?

Here's my second:

Everything looks normal - I would recommend using a program that actually puts 100% stress on your CPU that way you know that its actually stable. Try using something such as Prime95 blend test, or Intel CPU burn in, LinX, ect.

Looks good,what cooler?
Edit-seen it,missed it somehow.
Not an Intel guy,but the 2600k can go to 75° safely correct?

To be 100% sure I'd run at least a few hours of prime95 torture test
