Probably won't happen. You might be able to get the BCLK as high as 105-106 which will result in a little less than 3100MHz.

I've seen you on OCN asking these same questions. If you wanted to OC you should have got the 2500K and a better motherboard. I understand that those parts either weren't available or really expensive in your country but there's a saying that goes, "You get what you pay for."

Well you paid for a 2.9GHz locked multiplier CPU on a series of CPUs that doesn't take BLCK overclocks very well. So you paid for a locked 2.9GHz and that's what you got.

And to be frank your repeat threads and asking the same questions over and over and ignoring the input of the people you have sought help from is getting rather annoying...

Like i said it's not the mobo, you bought a locked multiplier chip. They aren't made for overclocking.

Actually, with a Z68 motherboard he could have gotten 400 MHz via multiplier because it's a CPU with Turbo Boost.

Z75 and Z77 motherboards would also allow overclocking, yes. But again, it's only up to 400 MHz with your CPU. I really don't think it's worth buying a new motherboard for a small improvement like that.

I don't consider turbo an OC. It boosts the frequency on the cores being used but can't boost all 4 simultaneously. If you have all 4 cores heavily loaded you can watch the frequencies bounce around in a monitoring app like core temp. It's a nice feature on the non-K chips especially for games or apps that use one or two cores.

The 4 extra bins or a non-k OC does raise the clock of all 4 cores. Yes it is still turbo (which IMO too is not an OC) and how many cores being used affects what speed it is. But an increase in speed over stock is still an oc.

For the i5 2310:
1 core - 3.6 (stock 3.2)
2 cores - 3.5 (3.1)
3 cores - 3.4 (3.0)
4 cores 3.3 (2.9)

The motherboard can overclock. Your cpu cannot.

i think its turbo core 3.1ghz enough for gaming..
No need to upgrade in future...
Nxt i will concerntrate on upgrading gpu in nxt times..

Some people are saying that intel i5 2310 can't overclock,I have tell this problem to dealer....
He says u can give ur cpu and Board to me for reselling...
and take amd fx 8120 with mobo....
so, is fx8120 can overclock and better than i5 2310???...
should i go to amd or stay on i5

Unless you can get your AMD chip to 5.0 (which isn't easy, I have one) the i5 is faster for gaming. That's why we suggested it to you on three different threads on OCN.

Ok, thanx and make me happy....by telling..that..
Is that good choice(i5 2310) for me if i budget gamer?
If i buy amd FX8120 then after large oc with 8120 then iT will compititor of i5 2310 in Games?? or AMd fx8120 already faster than i5 2310 in Games?

Actually i m performance user means i want smooth and performance with my small budget as i5 2.9...
I m not renderer....Only gamer which fast response which i want according to my small budget thats it...
SO,Please bro tell me a truth decision in which i can happy without investing more money...

Yeah did good, you have an awesome budget gaming build. The AMD needs a massive OC to even catch up, in gaming.

The i5 is better. You could even go with a 7970 or 2x6870 and your cpu is still plenty fast at stock.

Hi,

IMO your i5 2310 provides enough power to run any game at full. If u want more performance, either go for a good graphics card or change your CPU to an unlocked one like i5 2500k with a motherboard that can overclock such as having Z68 or Z77 chipset.

Do not go for AMD instead of i5 if you are a gamer, because most games use one or two cores except some latest games as Crysis2 or Battlefield 3. Wat u really need is "efficiency per core" and intel does a pretty good job than AMD with this.

So, becoming a budget gamer, do not change your setup until u do some rendering.

Gud luck buddy !

The i5-2310 can be overclocked to 3.8 but it avg more like 3.6 as pict shows every time it goes to 3.8 i click verify and it shows 3.6 ( water cooled ) ok first maybe my mobo has problems ? but its a P8Z68 v pro here is a link with pict and prof ......https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=442062859233695... I should add that if the bios is set to turbo on (bad deal ) it tries to over clock to 5.9 or worse 23ghz of coarse it will not boot ( ONCE AGAIN MY MOBO MIGHT HAVE PROBLEMS ) BUT IT WORKS AND LONG AS TURBO IS OFF IN BIOS WORKS GREAT MAX 3.8GHZ
