I am upgrading my build soon and will be overclocking my CPU. As I have never overclocked anything before I need to know how far I can go without damaging it or causing it to become unstable. I also need to know what I should use to overclock it, I have some software that came with the CPU called “Easy Tune 6” that appears to be for overclocking but should I just use the BIOS?
I was intending overclocking to around 4.5GHz I currently have an Intel Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz and will soon be upgrading my PSU to 1200W so power won’t be a problem.
Everyones got thier own opinion on cooling, best to do your own research and see what fits well for what you want to do. read lots of reviews and get the actual comparison of temps that people were able to get.
I had a cooler master similar to that one and it did a great job cooling my AMD 6100, but now I am using water cooling on my intel and it does just as good as a job, but I am not going for extreme speeds, just stable.
