That would be perfect for all us overclockers. Hey um the chip you sold me doesn't have low enough volts, or overclock as high, I need to swap it for a better one

Yeah, we can only dream

I just hit 5Ghz!



Unfortunately, the Temps are a little high for my tastes, so it will be backed down, but I am pleased that I managed to hit 5Ghz at all.

edit: Max temps have hit 83C on Core 2, not sure how high is too high...

That might be OK, under Prime or LinPack.
Since in real world you may only be in the mid 60s max, something like that.



But I agree, and would be a bit uncomfortable too.
I know with my Q9650, my Prime loads OCd, I wanted to be aprrox 70C.

Even though technically a bit higher was considered safe under Prime, that was my personal safe point.



Maybe a bit better cooling solution would help you out.

Either way, impressive OC, even if you do not decide to keep it. Good to know what its capable of.

Just noticed the GPU temps loaded in Real Temp. That's obviously the GPU part of the i5? I have the same version of Real Temp as you but don't have the GPU readings.

I am already water cooling the CPU, and pumping 1.55 volts through that thing to achieve that scares me. I have already bumped it back down to what I considered stable (and safe).

I played around with them, but they didn't seem to do much.
Newegg's video on OCing the i7-2600k was actually a really great guide that helped me push it up.

Nope, that has always been my actual GPU's temperature.
(I am not sure though)

I don't think so. Here's mine.....

Note no GPU readings. Remember your processor has the built in GPU.

Yes, but mine used to give GPU readings with my Q8200 as well.

Mine displays GPU on the version of RealTemp I have too with my 9550.
