I'm going to be upgrading to an i5 2500k in the near future because my current AMD cpu is bottlenecking my 560 ti while playing BF3. I'm going to be needing a new motherboard aswell to go along with the processor. I'm also going to get a CM Hyper 212+ and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what stable overclock settings they got with this card and cooler. I'm looking for the voltage and clock speed. Also if you could tell me the motherboard you used that would be appreciated.

Thanks.

With a CMH212+ you can expect 4500mhz reaching 100% stability under load, that's about as far as you'll comfortably get air cooling with that cooler, I'm using an ASRock P67 Extreme 4, you should be able to run 45x in the 1.325v range, some are getting to 45x with lower voltage some higher.

It's a different overclocking experience from your AMD, so study the guides to discover the overclocking approach you may want to take, meaning what you will or will not want to leave enabled to accomplish the overclock you may be after.

i'm using silver arrow to hit 4.8ghz 99% stable it's a 2500k solid performance....

It depends on the chip, but almost all will hit 4.5 without trouble. If you're lucky, you'll get one like xtreme5's. You shouldn't have to adjust the voltage at all; 1.3v should be fine, or 1.28v or whatever it is. If you're not stable, go 1.32v.

I got an i5 2500K I overclocked it to 4.7 GHZ with a voltage of 1.375V and I'm using Biostar TZ68A+RCH motherboard. It is very stable. I'm only using CM 212 hyper plus cpu cooler.

The Hper 212 will safely give ya 4.4 - 4.5 Ghz

The Hyper 612 PWM or Scythe Mugen 3 will safely give ya 4.6 - 4.7 Ghz

The Thermaltake Silver Arrow or Phanteks PH-TC14PE will safely take you to 4.8 - 5.0 Ghz and beyond

Safely being defined here as voltage < 1.40 and temps in low to mid 70's C

You can hit higher OC's if ya shut of the speed step stuff which clocks down the speed when not needed but Id suggest using the offset method to accomplish your OC so that it does clock down.
