post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
what do i need to overclock my sb. (intelburntest, realtemp and cpu-z) is what i used for my socket 775. is it the same software?

whats a save cpu voltatage to use 24/7
whats the highest you want your cpu to hit.
do you use line load for your cpu?

You should be able to get a very good overclock on about 1.28, you'll be save to go upto 1.3 on air but I probably wouldn't go further.

Also use coretemp and prime95, you'll be stable after 4 - 6 hours of prime

Also, you shouldn't overclock unless you do it from the bios, no software overclocking.

To test the stability of your 2500K, I use Intel Burn Test and prime95. Most people will recommend under 1.5v for 24/7 usage as long as the chip doesn't get over 75 under load. Once the cpu hits 80 degrees, either switch to water cooling or drop the clocks back down to use less voltage. I personally use ultra high for the LLC on my rig...the extreme setting would cause the voltage to spike too high under load.

Yes those are fine also prime 95 on blend test is good for sb

Keep voltage below 1.45v for 24/7 use
5.0ghz is achievable on some cpu's at that voltage but 1.52v is max safe voltage stated from intel but i would not recomend for 24/7 use
Keep temps as cool as you can normally within the 70's mark on full load within prime after a few hours testing.

Yes you use load line but how much you use depends on how high your overclock is. after 4.5ghz you tend to use a higher level of llc in the bios

im at 4.3ghz w/1.275v on a stock cooler most it hit was 67c. i notice that realtemp doesnt show the speed the cpu is at load or even idle?

Use coretemp, it's my temp monitoring of choice.

If your currently stable then no i wouldn't. If you push for 4.8ghz then yes it will help you with stability but first you will need a better cooler me thinks
