So as the title says, I have a i5-2500k that will be here in a few days. I currently have a i7-920 at 4.2ghz and I am wondering how far I can take this thing. Its a couple years old and I don't care if I fry it.

So I figured I would offer it up as a test platform for you guys. If you have suggestions on everything (vcore, qpi, pll etc) let me know and I will see how far we can take this thing before it gives out :) 

It is water cooled and I have 3 120mm case fans as well so you have an idea of the cooling.

I would sell it and not fry it! It is still a great setup!

Agreed it is quality and I enjoyed it, but whats the fun in selling it when we could see how far it can be taken? :)

SERIOUSLY

keep as a back up incase the 2500K has a problem atleast that way you can still game. ive seen and heard a few 2500k's go pop got a mate that end up with 2 bad 1s, first never worked 2nd went bang less that 15mins in the PC got a 3rd and all is well for 3 mnths now.

back hardware is always good
