Hi everyone First time poster and rookie/aspiring overclocker here. I've been playing around with the idea of overclocking my i5 2500K as it's starting to show it's age, at least when it comes to gaming, and I've always used the CPU at stock settings with Intel Turbo Boost enabled. I figured I would attempt the "oh-so-easy" 4.5GHz overclock that I have seen on practically every 2500K OC thread, but I seem to have run into a bit of trouble as both IntelBurnTest (5 runs, maximum stress) and Prime95 (Blend) indicate that the system is not stable. Please note that I would like to run a 24/7 OC if at all possible. I've included an image of the IBT run that was done at 4.5GHz and 1.35v, and as you can see, the instability is NOT due to high temps at all since the highest temp was core 2 at 70C. I have tried increasing the vcore to 1.4v but the problem persists. Any advice that you guys may have will be greatly appreciated! All changes were made through the BIOS and are shown below. Relevent system specs are listed below: i5 2500K Corsair H80i v2 AIO Gigabyte Z77-D3H G.Skill Ares F3-1600C9D (2x4GB) Seasonic SnowSilent 750W Phanteks Eclipse P400S P.S. I'm running the above settings with no BSOD up to this point.
