2500k, and the OC.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
this might look like a really useless thread, but to me, its not !

im pretty sure i'll get flamed for "not searching before posting" or "there are already lot of tutorials", but hear me out. every single tutorial i've seen so far are tons of pages of explaining what OC is, and about the RAMs, and maybe im just stupid, but i really find it hard to get the information i really need.

i got myself a 2500k processor, and i've been using the stock cooler for a week.
this saturday i will finally recieve my coolermaster hyper 212 plus, which i've heard is one of the best air coolers out there.

naturally, i want to OC this processor now. im not looking for a extreme overclock, 4.2~ would be great.

and now behold, my flame-able question :

can anyone, using the same motherboard & processor, please tell me what EXACTLY to do? or link me to a good tutorial?

here is my pc, via CPU-Z. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1780325

Also, you can easily do 4.2 on the 2500k stock cooler. I had mine running at 4.2 on the stock cooler before I got my hyper 212 and load temps were barely above 60'

just an fyi

well, my 2500k with stock cooler is 42~, and after a few hours of gaming it reaches 72~.

with some overclocking it would go too high for me to be comfortable with it :/

ty tho !

Dude all you will have to do is raise the multi to 42. More than likely wont even have to touch the voltage.

I used the same tutorial the first guy posted, but this is what you want summed up:

Set your Ai Overclock Tuner - Manual

BCLK/PEG Frequency - 100

Turbo Ratio - By All Cores - 42

After that, you'd wanna check the timings of your memory, keep the memory frequency on AUTO for now and change it after you've got stable settings.

CPU Voltage - Manual Mode

CPU Manual Voltage - I would say 1.18v would suffice, but it depends on your chip so you might need to tweak this around to get the best stability/temp ratio

DRAM Voltage - I cant actually remember what I set this to, something like 1.5v I think, but there should be an auto function which I think on mine floats around 1.506v anyway

That should be it, CPU-Z and Prime95 it for a good few hours, hope that helps

thanks ! my CPU uses 1.24v under small load, so i guess i dont need it change it.

this was just what i was looking for, ty everyone for the links & help.
