Is this OC okay? Tags: Overclocking Last response: November 5, 2011 2:19 PM in Overclocking Share zachcuden November 3, 2011 12:34:39 PM Hi guys! I was just wondering if these seemed like an okay overclock on the 2500k. I only ran prime for like 10 min cause I had to go to class. Should I do an overnight test tonight or is it unnecessary?

But I would run another test for at least 1hour and check your temps again. 10 minutes might not have been enough to see if the OC was stable, but your temps seem good for that clock speed. | Report abuse nordlead November 3, 2011 1:56:11 PM 8 hour tests don't make much sense to me. 30 min to 1 hour seem more than sufficient since you'll hit max temperature and run through the FFT multiple times in that span. | Report abuse zachcuden November 3, 2011 4:31:34 PM Oh ok sweet.

I test for 24 hours, because I regard stability as very important even though I do not run any mission essential software on my systems. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Is this OC okay?> Related ressources: ForumAMD 7850 3dmark 11 OC score is it okay for the clocks?
