    Nice work.

    I just helped my mate put together a new PC, also with a i5 2500k and a H100.

    Wonder now seeing this if I could push his CPU to around 4.8GHz :D

    Excellent Job mate.

    Some chips take really low voltages.


    I will post my settings and let you know.

    Makes me hate my socket 1366 i7's. My 970 clocks well but needs decent voltage, and my 950 needs like 1.34V minimum just for 4.0GHz with HT. I wish I could hit 4.4+ with 1.32v...

    Yeah, have to admit I'm jealous too... I'm about to receive my 2nd 1st gen i7, a 950 that's supposed to do 4ghz at 1.27, and 4.2 at 1.32. Completely impossible to do 4.8, even 4.5 looks nearly impossible with serious water cooling. Oh well....

    Wow, I might grab and i7 2xxxk series now.

    I could run that, and would run that 24/7 :laugh:

    I personally see life for a lot of chips going past 3-4 years with 1.35-1.3 volts or less. Then there is major options for upgrades.

    Great clock!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have found that a lot of people who claim to run their 950's and such at 4.2+ GHz with really low voltages (ie: 1.24 and shit) and they are totally full of it. They might be able to boot up windows at that setting, but I only run 24/7 stable OC's. I don't like to have an ounce of instability, and I refuse to disable hyperthreading also :p

    I can run my 950 at 4.4GHz on a corsair H70 with HT on, but it requires pretty substantial voltage and it gets a bit hot (950 is kind of a warm chip anyways) but it will run 24/7.

    My 970 is under custom water so it runs a lot cooler, and clocks just as high. I normally run it at 4.0 or 4.2 and it takes a bit less voltage than the 950. 4.8GHz would be freakin' amazing, but I think the water would start boiling and the chip would catch fire to be honest.

    My i7-2600K is doing 4.6Ghz w/ DDR3-1866 @ 1.3v at the moment, IntelBurnTest stable testing 4GB of memory and 20 passes (gets ~120 GFLOPS +/- 3 GFLOPS). Cooler is a cheapo Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. My package temp gets up to 85c and the hottest core about 80c in IntelBurnTest. This weekend I will try to push for 4.7. I tried 4.8 using the UEFI presets and it would BSOD after a few minutes. I'll need to learn more about how SB ticks before I go play with the obscure voltages manually.

    What's up with the whining about i7 9XX ? Back when they came out, 4Ghz was a super good clock. It's like complaining the 1978 Ferrari can't go as fast as the 1998 Ferrari.... DUH

    It is 3 years old! Reaching 4~4.2Ghz comfortably is awesome IMO.

    Everyone's jelly that Intel's mainstream platform is kicking their soon obsolete extreme platform in the ass as far as overclocking goes. :nutkick:

    No need for the jelly...I bloody well hope new platforms exceed the previous...hence so many disappointed in Bulldozer.


    To the OP:


    Nice chip, dude! My 5.5GHz chip only does 4.5 GHz @ 1.32v. My 53 multi chip does 4.8 at 1.35v.

    You got BOTH of mine beat! NO your chip, yeah, I'm jelly. :laugh:

    Dang, thats an awesome cpu for sure. My first 2500k did 5Ghz at 1.4v. My current 2500k needs 1.45v for 4.9 (stable) and it won't even boot at 5ghz using a bclk increase or the multi at 50.

    That's definitely a keeper.

    I used to have PaulieG's C0, but I eventually sold it for a D0 :p

    I'm happy with 4Ghz at 1.275V

    It's not really whining, but now that you mention it - YOU'RE whining by complaining about it.

    I was just joshing around, much like old timers talk about how things are new fangled these days. You're taking it a bit too seriously.

    Are batch numbers still relevant with these processors?

    If so, would you be able to post your batch number, OP (unless of course you did already and I'm missing it)?

    Heheh Tatty, I'm running an 965x ES version, so not even CO stepping yet! Have the stupid thing backed down to 3.8 right now.... arrg. I just wanted a chip that does 4ghz, sure not an es! 950 coming soon......
