Solved Overclocking the 2500k to 4.5ghz Tags: CPUs Overclocking Intel i5 Last response: February 10, 2013 9:05 PM in Overclocking Share yesthis February 10, 2013 8:55:52 PM Right now my i5 2500k is at stock speed (3.3ghz). Is it okay to jump straight from 3.3 to 4.5ghz, or would I need to take steps, like 3.3-3.8ghz, 3.8-4.2ghz, then 4.2-4.5ghz?
