Overclocking on my sandybridge

Sorry to say i made a stupid mistake buying the non-K 2xxx S.B. series CPU. but i still overclocked a tad, but back to my point. if i set my clock settings to 106 x 38 (4066GHz) or something close to that, will my pc/cpu explode and ruin?? or run slightly unstable :??:

Im fixing on getting a 2500K because ivy bridge is too pricey now and i use to use a OLD Pentium series processor so anything is gold to me

thanks for any help!!!111 :D :D :D :D :D

  1. if it's not K then your not getting your multi past your turbo boost ratio, and adjusting the BLK frequency is just a bad idea.... and pentium processors could be adjusted with FSB overclocking, either way... i would suggest an aftermarket cooler

    I do have one its a CM hyper 212 evo and what do you mean by "not getting multi past your turbo boost ratio" because im a little noobish at this non-k stuff
  3. Don't go above 103 on the BLCK.
  4. i just wouldn't touch the blck in my opinion, and i meant non K edition processors cant raise their cpu multiplier past their turbo boost ratio, so 3.8GHz or whatever it is on your CPU
  5. i have all cores at 3.6 which seems excellent soo ill just buy the 2500k and give my bro the 2400
  6. Things could get a bit hot if you go beyond 3.6GHz on a CM hyper 212 Evo, unless the room temps are real cold.

    Huh? I'm quite easily at 4.5 on my 2500K with my Evo. 64C on the warmest core and 58-62 on the others in Prime 95 (73F ambient). In other words, beyond 3.6 on a 2500K with a 212 Evo is child's play.

    4.5 is almost a guarantee, and beyond is attainable.
  8. i run my PhII on 1.56V topping out at 61C so i think a 4.5GHz 2500K should be alright
  9. BTW

    Why do you need to OC?
  10. i like to have options unlike my last setup with an OEM board (f***ing Dell) plus its fun

    my room is huge and i have a fan blowing air and house temp is 75 F after about 2 hrs of gaming (crysis black-ops MW3 metro2033) my fans still blow out cool to warm air :)
