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

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 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

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.

i run my PhII on 1.56V topping out at 61C so i think a 4.5GHz 2500K should be alright
