Oh, yeah -

Keeping with my lower voltage/lower temps policy, here's the latest:

Lookin good prof. Overclocking is like mixing chemicals, if you get one part wrong it may blow up. That earlier 155W reading in CoreTemp was scary.

My poison is Pepsi.

No offence mate, but you're teaching granny to suck eggs in this case

Manually entering all values is one of the first things I do.

It is good advice though - It's the same advice I always give (That's why I know it's good )

But without intending to sound arrogant - I know how to overclock

But thank you.

The only difference between this rig and previous rigs of mine is that I'm using the offset function to maintain all the power saving features rather than a manual, permanently fixed voltage. It's a bit of a novelty.

Your i5 may be from a bad batch or binning. I did note your core 0 had a lot lower temp too.
One lower core temp of a 2-5c is not that uncommon, however the disparity on mine suggests the paste needs to be re-applied.

I don't think the chip is necessarily from a 'bad' batch - just average. I originally thought it was more of a golden chip though.

Not all 2500K's can even boot into Windows @ 5ghz, or are even stable at 4.8ghz - so once/if I sort out the temps I still think 5ghz is a possibility if decide to go for it.

I was originally happy and content with a 24/7 of 4.6ghz - then suddenly I wasn't. Damn curiosity

Speaking of stable:

13hrs, temps are much more favourable - I might even leave it at 4.8ghz simply because I can.

My i5 is the same way. I don't think it's the paste, it has always been that way through 2 coolers. My core 0 is always 8-10°C cooler than the other 3.

On previous sockets, it was always core 4 that was the odd one out. But it's hearting to hear I'm not the only one with the 8-10c discrepancy. Although previously during stress testing and under load the difference did shrink to to around 5c difference.

Do you use the supplied NH-T1 paste with the cooler?

Yes, do you think that may be the problem? I heard it was excellent paste. And I applied it twice. Once just to see the coverage. Cleaned it and did it again, so I know the paste was right.

I'm going to try Arctic Silver next time. I'm thinking about a new board and CPU, so we'll see.
