2500k overclocking on Corsair H50?

Recommended Posts

Well, I will be receiving an Intel Core i5-2500k, and and ASUS P8Z68V-PRO/GEN3 for Christmas this year from my awesome family. My existing system is as follows, and I will be keeping everything except the CPU and motherboard.

 

-AMD Phenom II X4 965BE @ 3.75Ghz

-ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

-8GB (2x4GB) Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1333

-Dual XFX Radeon 5770 1GB (OC 910 Core, 1315 VRAM) (Original Phoenix cooler, exhausts outside the case)

-XFX 650W Pro Modular XXX Edition PSU

-Antec 300 Case

-Intel X-25V (40GB) SSD, WD 6400AAKS, Samsung HD502HI Storage

-Samsung BD-ROM/DVD+RW, LG DVD+RW

Cooling: Corsair H50 Watercooling kit. I had to purchase a second one, so I'm using both of the fans in push-pull config as exhaust., One 140mm Antec Top fan in low speed, 2x Rocketfish 120mm (1100RPM) Front fans, and one Silverstone FN121 Side panel fan.

Alright, I plan on overclocking. I hope to hit at least 4.5Ghz, shooting for 4.7, 4.8Ghz, if possible while keeping voltage under 1.35v. My big concern is cooling, will the H50 be sufficient cooling for a 2500k at 4.5Ghz+ with push-pull config? My Phenom II hits about 48-55 celsius depending on how cool the room is. Or if there is anything I should know about overclocking this?

It all really depends on your chip and its voltage tolerance. The H50 is better than stock cooling and 4.3 to 4.4GHz should be attainable with temps that are not to outrageous I would expect temps in the low to mid 60's Celsius at those speeds with the H50.

:withstupid: H50 will do just fine at getting you 4.5ghz with no sweat, it's beyond that when things start getting interesting.

I am using an Antec 620 on a 2500K @ 4.2 with no voltage bump and do not break anything above 57C under load testing. The H50 should give similar results.

So, what you are saying is that under load with like cpu-z open, you are reading the exact same load vcore at 3.3 and 4.2 Ghz., ..............interesting.

 

I'm guessing you have set it manually, what vcore did you set it to?

I think he just meant he was able to overclock to 4.2ghz without needing to increase the voltage :P

That's correct, I have not made ANY changes in the BIOS to the voltage.
