Overclocking i5 2500k

Recommended Posts

Thanks for comments, I'll get 212 EVO and got it up to 4.5 for now... if it will be nice and cool might try and go higher, but I doubt it...

Make sure you get good TIM too though. Noctua's NT-H1 is really good for a cool overclock :thumbsup:

I've got the 212 Evo and have a 4.3 @1.25v 8hr prime stable so far and temps are in low 60s.

I used the cooler master provided tim though.

Going to have to agree with TJ on this one. My 212+ could do 4.5 on my i7 with temps only in the low 60's 24 hours stable on prime95. And that's just the 212+. not the EVO. I would think that given the performance of the EVO, he should hit 4.5GHz easily.

 

 

It is not TJ max on the chip it is TCase. I am running a stress right now and it looks like 4.6Ghz is do able on a Hyper 212+

 

Max Tcase per Intel documemnts is 72.6 celcius. Running over 72.6 Celcius will make a short life for your processor and it has happenned with 2500K's and 2600K's.

Nothing wrong with the cm tim that comes with the 212 coolers. You are just tossing money away when buying new tim for a new cooler.

My friend has his 2500k @ 4.5GHz @ 1.256V @ 23C Ambient @ 50C Max @ OCCT Linpack @ CM Hyper 212+

so there should be no troubles whatsoever...

I am testing it as of yesterday withe the 212+. This is not correct. He ain't getting 4.5GHz with that voltage.

It's very possible

I have said it before drdeath you are pretty damn negative about things and very firm on things being "impossible" just because you aint getting the same results doesnt mean others cant.

It's possible then but I was thinking about normal circumstances. With ambient temps at normal living conditions 18-22C. It's not possible.

 

I'm stressing blend prime now at 4.5Ghz 1.255. :) I'll do linx after.

 

Don't worry.. :teehee: You'll get screenies (if i'm successful, that is)
