this is my first time on the forum. I'm a beginner to OC and was wondering if it would cause any problem OC without incresing the voltage. My 2500K is running at around 62C on full load and 66C at max temp. The idle temp is around 32C. It's clocked at 4,3Ghz and 1,056v in CPU-Z. I ran prime95 for 4 hours and it was stable.
Thanks in Advance!
So like chapstic said i tried HW monitor and it shows exacly the same values. One thing i forgot to say is that my motherboard only has a 4 pin power connector for the cpu. I am wondering if that doesn't cause any changes on the stock voltages.
I have a few screenshot of CPU-Z and Hardware Monitor while i was running Prime95.
I have the same board. I read somewhere that CPU-Z and similar software has difficulty reading the correct voltage on gigabyte. It was recommended to use the Gigabyte software EasyTuner... I did a comparison and CPU-Z showed my voltage much lower than EasyTuner... i would go by what EasyTuner says or even better TouchBios.
Also I am wondering if you changed any settings other than the multiplier.
