More about 2500k 5ghz
  1. Are you running into a CPU bottleneck with the work you are doing? If not, stop. You will have a longer life and healthier processor if you only make it work as hard as it needs to to fulfill your needs.

    Or are you just doing this for fun and don't need to worry about it smoking?

    If it were me, i would stop. Keep the screen capture and set it back to whatever setting best fit my needs.
  2. i was doing it for fun i will just leave it at 4.8 ghz @1.35 v core doesn't pass 75c idle at about 40-42c
  3. 75c is a bit hot, what cooler are you using?

    5ghz on a hyper 212 EVO is really pushing it! The maxtemp for the 2500k is around 85-90C! If you want a 24/7 5ghz, you will be switching to a custom watercooling setup.
