I'm pretty noob to ocing. Very noob actually. I jsut built my new sb 2500k machine and i ran the puppy through the autotuning, At 1.22 volts, i'm hitting 4.5ghz.

I have a pretty good air cooler with the noctua dh-14 and a ft02. My question is, what's considered safe temps and voltage for sb?

Thanks!

i have seen the msi p67gd65 going up to 4.2 @ 1.4v with ocgene (auto overclock) and that within save range so i think you stil have a lot of room
but i whont go over 1.3 for now yust 2 be save and go up max when the limits are known

i think no 1 can realy know the max vcore yet they are 2 new ;) 

my 2600k and GB ud7 wil arrive very soon ill try 5ghz and see if its save or not :p  :p  :p 

btw nice oc ( 4.5ghz @ 1.22v ) :D  what are your temps?

at load, temp is pretty stable at 35C. Not sure if that's good or not, but it rarely gets higher than that.

lol that amazing are you using prime 95?
old i7,s were hitting 70-80c @ 4ghz +
you thermal limit is ~90c so you got lots of room :kaola: 

cant w8 2 get my :fou:  :fou:  :fou:

Hmm...I probably didn't stress test it as much as I should. All I did was use furmark at full load for about 10 min. It never went over 36C after 10 min.

Temps don't go above 45C, though there were a few times when I bsoded....

Is the threshold really 70C?

prime 95 is a realy good tester 4 overclocking yust let it run for 1 hour if it passes its pretty stable :p 

and i don,t really know the max save temp for the 2500k i think its around 80c :)

Max temp is 75-85 on 2500K as far as i know :)

As the silicon thickness reduces it seems that max. vcore also reduces along with it.

Where is everyone getting their CPU's? I haven't found any for sale yet. I assumed that since they were just announced that it would be months before they were available to the general public.

Are you not happy with 4.5ghz?

To be honest, not really, unless that is, everyone underestimated the asus overclocking tool. It's suppose to be conservative! I'd like to hit 5ghz if possible.

Why do you WANT people to kill their processor? Shouldn't feed bad information.

The majority of 2500k and 2600ks are not going to be stable at 5ghz at this point in time. I've read that maybe 10% of the processors are stably reaching those speeds @ ~ 1.35v
