2500K OC settings, ok?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi folks, first of all awesome site here very informative. So i have everything set to auto except the following;
Phase control: Extreme
Duty Control: Extreme
By all cores with multipliers for each set at 44
Like i said my cpu volt is offset with auto. "+"
I ran prime blend for 3hrs and 45minuts last night, "i wanted to go all night but we got a wicked lightning storm here in NY last night so i shut it down". No errors and my v core using cpuz was going back and forth from 1.304-1.312. Temps were no more than 60 deg. Using core temp my number 2 core is always 4 to 5 degrees lower than the rest. Thermal paste issue? Does this seem ok overall? I'm fairly new to the OC stuff. All i do is gaming. Does this seem ok or would i benefit more in gaming to go higher and manually set my voltages? Thanks ~Wardy~

Temps aren't bad. There will always be one core that is higher/lower than the others. It's not a TIM or a seating issue. But it looks good to me. Keep the voltage down and the temps under control and you're good.

looks normal to me.

i've tested 3.1ghz ht off in metro 1080p very high 4xaa and got 58fps.. 4.8ghz i got 59fps.

gpu limited games, it won't matter.

cpu limited games, will mostly run so fast already (100+fps, if you're not gpu limited) that a 20fps difference won't matter.

so... 3.1Ghz or 4.8Ghz doesn't really matter in games if you have the GPU power to back it up.
