You shouldn't really NEED to OC for quite some time. I OC simply because I can, not because I need to. | Report abuse BennettBoy1997 June 26, 2012 4:12:16 PM Ok cheers | Report abuse DarkOutlaw June 26, 2012 4:40:59 PM BennettBoy1997 said:Is the intel i5 2500k 3.3 good enough for gaming or does it not matter, also I don't really want to overclock it because I'm worried it will destroy the rest of my pc. Overclocking has come a long way. Since the demand for the sport has become so widespread, everything now is OC friendly. There is also alot less risk involved than years ago imo. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>I5 2500k 3.3> Related ressources: ForumFS PC -Intel i5 2500k 3.3 Ghz, 16gig ram, 120gig SSD, 1.5TB sata3 HD, ForumIntel i5 2500k 3.3 ghz runs at 3.297ghz ForumIntel i5 2500K Showing as 3.3 GHz Within CPU-Z when OC'ed to 4.4GHz ForumPair graphics card withh my i5 2500k @ 3.3 ghz ForumAMD FX 8150 Zambezi (3.6ghz 8 core) VS.
