Atm i'm at 4.8Ghz. Looks stable so far. But i want to go higher. I would like to reach 6000 points with 3dmark 11. Could you give me any advise to get to 5Ghz? I read that for many 2500K chips it very hard to oc after 4.8Ghz, needs very high voltage like 1.4v = NEEDS MORE COOLING! This seems to be the case for me. I tried upping the voltage to 1.35 but no boot. I don't really want to go and fiddle with the other voltage settings without asking. Maybe someone with the same type of setup could give me some info on the bios settings. Btw is it normal that CPUZ gives these offset readings? Here is a screen shot with my current settings. Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend.
