Just really want an idiots guide with normal values to be used with this processor / RAM. Googled but nothing concrete lmartinefc November 10, 2010 11:12:32 AM Everything I know of overclocking i learnt from OC on my Q6600 (2.4 to 3.2 stable). Other than that....not practical application so not sure on the tolerances etc for this chip Phoenixlight November 10, 2010 1:23:54 PM I don't think you'll be able to get a stable overclock higher than 3.5Ghz with 1333mhz R.A.M. and 4.2Ghz isn't exactly standard, it's pretty high. lmartinefc November 10, 2010 1:29:27 PM Might as well just leave it then. Will the h50 cooler be ok for an i5 at stock, or will I better off with a h70 (overkill?) In any case, i'll be getting my 980x in December so just wanted a bit of fun before then...not to be ;( Phoenixlight November 10, 2010 3:14:22 PM The H50 is fine although if you want to do a bit more research into different heatsinks check this website out: http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm#INTELHEATSI... lmartinefc November 17, 2010 7:18:27 AM Got the case now. SUGO 3 (the new revision)...so will need to see what fits. Thinking H70 (newer so any kinks would be worked out)...if not the h50 will be going in. Not overclocking, just want to reduce the temp range on my CPU, keep idle and max in a 10 degree range, instead of 30 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
