2500k @ 4.8 @ 1.45v

Hallo everyone

I was finally starting playing with my old 2500k and have these results:

Iknow every cpu is different, but I can't get my 2500k stable at 4.8 with anyless then 1.45 volt, do this sound reasonable?

Maybe i just got a bad one?

What is your opinions?

  1. Up the voltage, its completely normal.
  2. If you are benchmarking, then you can use 1.45 while keeping an eye on the temps. For normal 24/7 use, 4.5 Ghz is plenty. Any more is not worth the extra heat and voltage. I have found 4.3 to be a good compromise.
  3. Once you reach a certain point, the processor often requires you to absolutely DUMP voltage into it to become stable at a given speed.

    The best thing to do, is to drop your speed by a few hundred Mhz, so you can reduce the exponential voltage required.

    You don't need to have a processor to be at the absolute highest speed, 4.5 will be no different from 4.8 for gaming.
