i5 760 OC 4.0gHz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to buy an i5 760 OC'd to 4.0gHz from a friend. I'm going to install it on an EVGA P55 FTW. Is this safe? And how much higher will the temperature run? Thanks.

Overclocking doesn't save on the chip itself. It all happens in the bios. As for safety I would read some guides before you go killing a chip

It's already been OC'd by my gamer friend. I just want to know if the EVGA P55 FTW is a good board for it.

what he was trying to say is yes your friend has it oced on his system but when you put it into a different mb it will have to be oced again because the oc is saved in his mb bios not on the chip thus by you need to set oc in your bios and just because his system runs it at 4ghz does not mean yours will

Temperatures aren't board-dependent, they're clock, voltage, and HSF-dependent. I second patrick's advice.
