I was wanting your input on my overclock based on my screen shot, as it would be easier than me trying to explain it thank you. http://s1171.photobucket.com/albums/r541/rooster_861/ More about : intel core overclock thoughts IntelEnthusiast a c 188 à CPUs a b K Overclocking a b å Intel February 13, 2012 6:09:15 PM Overall it looks about what is to be expected out of the majority of the Intel® Core™ i5-2500K processor. 4.4GHz to 4.5GHz should be a good stable overclock on the processor.

Also i ran prime 95 for a few hours last night and got fatal error expected sum, but i can't notice anything wrong with the stablity while gaming. Should I be concerned rooster_86 February 13, 2012 6:20:43 PM Do you believe i should turn off the power savings mode and the c states in the bios to help with stablity? Thank you for your time seumas_beathan February 13, 2012 6:21:09 PM I was just curious to see if you would be able to oc more, An error after only a few hours isn't really good. You should down clock slightly rooster_86 February 13, 2012 7:04:53 PM my vcore is set at 1.30 volts but i have left power saving stuff on and it usually stays around 1.27. Would it be better to turn off power saving features? nforce4max a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking February 13, 2012 7:41:05 PM If not overclocking more why not try to take your chances with the most minimum stable voltage. rooster_86 February 13, 2012 7:57:20 PM Is my vcore high for my overclock? nforce4max a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking February 13, 2012 9:13:56 PM No, it is pretty good but just interested if you could go further lol Can't find your answer ?
