I5 2500K at 4.8Ghz temps with Xigmatek Prime

finally a I have a decent cooler for my cpu so I overclocked it to 4.8ghz at 1.344V and test with IBT with 20 run
and max temps for cores are 69 78 75 74
i think it's high for that voltage ?
I put small dot on the cpu and put the cooler and remove it and put again 2 or 3 time because i didn't know how to mount it :pt1cable: :pt1cable:

  1. That will be about the max speed you will get with that voltage and I wouldn't put any more voltage because if you go over 1.38v you will shorten the life of your cpu and defeat the purpose of overclocking the cpu. Yes the cpu can handle higher voltage but at the risk of loseing the cpu to a shortened life span it's not worth it.
  2. oh thanks but what do think about temps ?
  3. The temps are ok because they are Max temps? You don't want to have them go any higher. Fortunately those temps are from a stress test and not from average game play so you shouldn't see them that high consistantly.
