I5 750 stock speed too high?



Stock cooler, no OC. Averaging between 3000-3100 MHz.
Temperature is around 40°C idle.

Just wondering if this is normal, as I just ordered a new cooler and want to OC.

Best regards.

  1. You mean the temps ? On idle a bit high, but not serious, stress test the system using OCCT or prime 95 ..
    As for core clock, it can be oced a lot more, that would require upping the v core, but monitor temps closely.
    Indeed a cpu cooler would be good here-

    I was actually wondering if the speed was too high? Isn't it supposed to average around 2700 MHz? I realize that it can be OC'd a lot more. But is 3000-3100 MHz normal stock speed?
  3. Ok, you didnt oc, is there turbo boost/mode active in bios, ?
    If yes, that would be it.

    Any way to check that without booting into bios?
    I'm using the ASRock P55 Extreme.
    If it's activated, should I disable it before I OC?

    Appreciate your answers and your time :)
  5. No, in bios only..
    Yes better disable it when oc..
  6. You don't have to but it's a good idea to prevent the overclock getting too high.
