Would I be able to OC a 2500k on a P8P67 LE?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just started putting this build together for a roommate, and noticed that the LE does not have a modifiable Vcore, which I find completely retarded (only an auto vcore, which I'm afraid to use as I don't want it going farther than 1.42).

Would I be able to get at least around 4.0Ghz without modifying the vcore of a i5-2500K? or would I not really be able to reach that high without touching the vcore?

Get this ASUS P8P67 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131705 for like $10 more.

vs the LE you're considering: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131706&Tpk=P8P67%20LE

But yes you can get 4.0Ghz on stock vcore but why stop there with a 2500k?

P8P67 LE already ordered and installed, they did not have the P8P67 available at the time of purchase. If I can hit 4.0 Ghz on stock Vcore, I'll be happy.

It's for my roommate, he wouldn't really notice the difference, so a 4Ghz OC would be perfect for his uses, produces less noise & heat than if higher.

How high would I be able to push it at stock vcore?
