Requires alot of voltage though.

Frio does a great job keeping it cool at this speed and voltage , hit 82c after 10 mins of prime.

Nice, now I might have to give it a go....lol
Hi Jeepman , tbh I find it too dam easy to clock these new sandybridge cpu's its far too straight forward.

I think they all vary alot on what voltage they need to hit high overclocks , mine needs 1.36 iirc to be stable at 4.6ghz , 1.46 for 5ghz and 1.5 for 5.1ghz , its far too much voltage to be chucking at it for a 24/7 in my eyes , but certainly interesting to see how far they can go.

I read a review earlier where they achieved a 5.1ghz oc with 1.46v so like I say it certainly varies.

Shame I hit a wall at 5.1 , would post but couldn't get into windows at 5.2ghz no matter what.

All good fun till ya fry it lol.

As most people say , if you can't afford to replace it , don't do it. If you can then knock yourself out

Paul.
Ok well I gave it a go....I'll post a few pics,each will be a different OC.
Now I will first say that I was just trying to see at what OC speeds I could boot at and idle while watching temps, I did open some programs and play mp3's, open browsers. I ran IntelBurnTest on the first one at standard settings.

I AM BY NO MEANS CALLING THESE STABLE.

Still did not hit a wall for booting up and getting into Windows, I stopped at the last one because of the high volts.
I will fine tweak them at a later time to try for stable.

You spelled "were" wrong; you spelled it as "where" lol. Nice overclock I hope you can get 5.5ghz stable

No no no, It is spelled right the "H" is just silent

Yup I sure did spell "were" wrong.. I noticed it as I uploaded the pics but that was after I did all the testing and after I put it back to stock settings. I was not going to redo all of it. I figured I would just blame it on living in the mid-west.

Seems I got one of the "Golden Ones". I don't think I can get the 5.4 or 5.5 oc's stable with the high volts & temp it will take(imo). I just do not have the cooling for it right now.
Do you or anyone else know what the MAX temp & volts are for the I7-2600k? I searched but keep seeing different answers. I've seen from mid 80's to 100 (85c+-100c)

Here is the Intel spec sheet.

Intel® Core™ i7-2600K Processor

Tcase is 72.6°C, the CPU case add 5°C for the core temps (Tjunction) is 77.6°C.

That's the first Intel CPU spec sheet I've seen that didn't have a max CPU voltage listed.

I totally loath all you Sandy Bridgers and your 5.0+ Ghz overclocks. :P

My CPU won't go over 3.8 Ghz before becoming unstable.
