Today I tried to OC my 2500k (obviously) to 4.0GHz. The Mobo i have is a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4TH Rev 1.0. So, i got and adjust my multiplier to 40. I then save and exit (volt was at 1.240). Windows boots and i check my system properties. They say
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz 5.90GHz
I then check CPUZ and it says the processor is core i5 2500k @ 3.30ghz
What's up with this? I clocked back to 3.3ghz to be safe until i got an answer. Any ideas why all i see is 3.3 or 5.9?
Alright im running Prim95 now. CPU-Z says its clocking at 4.0ghz now . However in CPU-Z its saying the core voltage is only 1.164V. Will this rise if it needs to? Because in the BIOS its set to 1.28 like you said
