I5 2500k Overclocking Tags: CPUs Overclocking Intel i5 Last response: March 30, 2012 7:06 PM in Overclocking Share mrwhosetheboss March 30, 2012 5:27:00 PM Hi all Just got my new i5 2500k and a hyper 212 evo to keep the temps down. I have already overclocked it but I have two questions... 1. when I overclock to 4ghz, and boot up, for some reason, windows still says that my processor is running at 3.3ghz, have i done something wrong? 2. What speed can I go to with this cooler for a stable 24/7 overclock? Cheers Guys!

You may have only set "Turbo-Boost" to 4GHz, but until the CPU usage increases, the speed won't. You have to disable "Speed-Step" or something like that, to get the CPU to run at full speed all the time, even with low usage. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
