In Topic: Refining my overclocked i5-2500k

Ended up taking it down to 4.4 and set the offset to +0.015V. Didn't have a lot of time to much yesterday since I had to install the GTX 1060. Everything is playing nice and smooth, so I might take the lazy approach and leave it as is.. but I'll continue to monitor my temps and such to see what my normal use pushes them to.

Tonight I'll probably reduce the offset to +0.010V and see what temps I get from Prime95 torture.. and if they are OK, I'll give it an hour on Prime to see if any crash occurs. If there is an issue, I think I'll just start dialing back the multiplier. As mentioned, the difference it makes for my frames in game are minimal.. Shame I'm stuck at work an unable to test now......

I ran some games and such during the days and peaked out at 79°C. Should be OK, I'll keep an eye on it and if needed drop the voltage and/multiplier. My video card will provide the more noticeable difference when I am gaming, so I'm not worried about dialing back the OC a bit.

I left it overnight, and my temps from the idle are lower-mid 30s(°C). So that is fine. I'll play some games with the HWmonitor on and see where they peak out. With Prime I stopped it after it touched 90°C and it took about 7 min to reach that temp. As mentioned, I doubt anything I do in my daily use will get the temps near the Prime95 values. My usage is pretty much gaming, browsing, and MS Office crap.


Regardless, I will reduce my offset a little and see if I can stay stable.

@AkakmanH Thanks. I was impatient so I just went and bought a Logitech G810 RBG. I read a dozen articles on the switches and boards, so I based it off of that.... Hopefully it works out.
