I am planning to get the 2600k soon when I upgrade my com. I will be pairing it with the Zalman CNPS 10X Extreme cpu cooler and the HAF 912 advanced. What kind of overcclocked numbers do you think I might be able to get with it?
Two other questions, what is the highest OC anyone here has gotten for the 2600k, and what would you deem a good tempreture limit (one that should never be exceeded)?
Thank you very much in advance for any help you might be able to offer this newbie!
1- That overclock depends of your components and temps, maybe 4.5GHz with good temps, settings and a lot of work in BIOS.
2- Max archived on air is 5.8GHZ with x59 on mutiplier. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1639917
3- Regarding the temps, also depends of your components, I think 70ºC max on load.
Thanks for that warm welcome and great feedback saint19!
Sorry, for the late reply. I will be using the HAF 912 Advanced and adding a side fan to it. But I guess I will need to look at the real time tempreture when everything is set up to get a good idea of what I will be capable of getting.
70c max, got it! Thanks for that.
WOW!! 5.8GHZ!!! Hehe suddenly thinking of the rendering times I could get is giving me goosebumps!
