I just changed the ratio using ASRock Extreme Tuner from 33 to 41 giving me 4.1GHZ. Using Core temp I got my temps at around 30-34 idle (the same as stock clock) and on load I went from 49-54c to 60-64c (100%load) using 3dMark 11 to test.

I jumped up about 124 marks to 4914 3DMarks.

I'm wondering if this is a safe speed with my system. I have no idea how to use any stability software.

Going to bed I'll check replies when I wake up and respond.

P.s. I'm new to overclocking.


EDIT:
System Specs:
ASROCK Extreme 3 Gen3 Z68
i5 2500k 3.3GHz stock Stock Cooler.
8GB Gskill Sniper 1600
MSI nVidia GTX 560 TI Twin Frozer II
500GB HDD
Thermaltake armor series 80003 case
5 case fans. 1 side, 2 front 2 rear.

The actual speed of the CPU won't do any damage. It's a combination of voltage, temperature and current (and a factor of how much)

You havent specified voltages.

What i can say based on the given info.

Speed is 100% perfectly fine (simple as this)

temperatures = 100% fine.

I left everything stock and just changed the CPU ratio from 33 to 41. and turned off turbo
my g15 screen shows 4090.61MHZ (99.77) x 41.00) - 1.36V with the voltz fluctuating

Based on all this how far do you think it could reasonably go? and if you need more info tell me how find it and I will grab it for you.

1.36V is more then acceptable.

but honestly. You might have a chance to run 4.1GHZ at stock voltage (which is around 1.1-1.15 for most chips)

Don't use software to overclock the CPU. It's not as reliable or as effective. Take off the skirt and go into the BIOS like a man.

Don't adjust BLCK. ONLY use the multiplier. turn off CPU clock skew.

My 2500k goes up to 4.6GHz at 1.36v, and mine is a really, really ****ty one. Just to give some perspective
