Thanks Jaidyn and everybody. It will go faster, but why? It already is faster than I need.
Will you be keeping that overclock or was that just to see how high you can go?

I can understand seeing how high you can go, but obviously a usable, livable overclock is what ones real result would be. Always laugh at people in the reboot speed thread saying they disabled this and that to get their times. I disabled nothing, and my time is my real time

It will go a lot higher, but that is what I normally run at. But it only gets that high when the CPU is stressed.

Ha ha, yeah. It's nice to have a little play 'just to see what's slowing down what' for personal interest, but disabling things left right and centre just to post a screenie that's a few seconds faster...

That's for sure. I selected 4.5ghz as an arbitrary starting point and it was stable from the get go. I'm sure I 'll get bored and find it's max one day(or find it's min stable vcore), but aside from shits and giggles - I don't really see the need to do so any more.

Those of us who like to try our hands at overclocking today can do it with a few keystrokes or mouse clicks. In the early days one had to be a real techie to do it. Intel and AMD sold CPUs which all had locked multipliers. Intel's could not be unlocked, but some AMDs could be but one had to physically connect tiny specks of solder on the CPU, called bridges. this was done with a pencil or conductive pen and one slight, tiny misstep could make the CPU unusable.

Here's a short article about the old time "pencil trick".

Modern CPUs still have these bridges but are not accessable to users.

^^ That was overclocking

In a way it's kind of sad that it's so easy now. Breaking barriers, especially that first '4ghz' barrier was a real personal achievement.

Now you can sail past it with nary a thought. On the plus side, it is convenient and despite the ease, I wouldn't go back.

I wouldn't dream of touching my Cpu like this but that was the good old days of knowing how to do things for yourself which is real positive compared to some of today's standards if you know what i mean

Im can not say this is 100% stable, still playing around but ..
it did manage to get through 10passes of IBT @ Very High, and a Prime95 run at 7hrs earlier.

I do need to do a good 12+ hr run with Prime still.


Im not even sure where my scores should by with 4.5Ghz and 1866 RAM, but I am certainly pleased with it

The temps were during Intel Burn test BTW.


I actually thought about cranking up the more, because it seems the CPU still has plenty of room to stretch its legs yet.
But I think Ill leave it right where it sits for a 24/7 OC if it gets through a long Prime run without issue.

Wishmaster, I have a 2500K, but the best I can tell everything looks really good on your overclock. My 1866 ram score gets about the same as yours, your temps look good and vcore is right. Good job. Enjoy the new build.

Nice one, Wishmaster. So the new 2700k is doing well?
