As @peche already mentioned, why not start a i5 owners club :p:D
Doing this right now! :D tell your story why you chose to buy an i5 processor and show off your overclocks!!

I myself am the proud owner of a Skylake i5-6500, I did not buy a K processor since I'm not planning to overclock and a speed of 3.6GHz is good enough for gaming to me, although if I wanted to OC I can OC BCLK, running on an older BIOS from before the intel microcode update, with the latest BIOS I would be unable to OC the BCLK of my CPU.

At the moment I'm running on HD530 graphics, waiting for the new Pascal cards coming out. (can still play my games on my ROG laptop for now).
I never had an i5 before and I'm suprised how cool my Skylake processor runs with an CM 212 Evo and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut TIM!!
Aroud 20s idle and around 40s load!:peace:

i5 4670K on a Biostar Z97, it overclocks like a flop but I am not actually sure if that's the CPU or actually the board as I didn't get much out of my Pentium Anniversary chips I had, I can bench at 4.4gig but she needs over 1.3V to be stable at that speed and it gets a little toasty so run her 24/7 at 4.2Gig @ 1.25V on a balanced cooling profile.

Lol! :D Thanks for sharing that you have an i5 though, since we can't see your system specs, it's a step forward @dorsetknob :D

I don't have any problems that need for me to display my system Specs
edit ( it seems to bug @peche :):rolleyes:...)

rest assured if i have problems that the current system specs for the troublesome system will be displayed
so everyone can say "na thats crap you need to spend $1000's of dosh upgrading"

check my sig:roll:
pps i have 10 working desktops and 4 laptops there just ain't space to display all their specs
and they randomly change spec as i fit and remove hardware they range from P2 to
6 core I7

4.7Ghz stable (IBT/weeks of gaming with only using S3 sleep) Chip does boot at 5Ghz, but i was too lazy to tune the voltages in and it'd crash occasionally (have new RAM now, so that might make it easier)


Ram will go faster, CPU wont allow it. wish i had a 3770k :(

a month ago i had 5x i5 2400's in the house, it was a glorious time (then i lost my job and decided to sell them)

thats what these clubhouses are for, yeah? :p

its pretty much a free 500Mhz on stock cooling and volts for all the 2x00 chips. varies a little between models, but such an idiot proof performance boost to force all the cores on at the higher clocks.

a year ago i was all AMD, i got super lucky with a local business throwing away their old intel systems. Tended to be garbage asus OEM boards with a few friend USB ports (some idiot with a USB killer took out the front ports on every system) so they just binned the entire PC's for safety.

Best was one random i5 2500k, rest were regular 2500/2400's, and i got the boards too. Sold them cheap with the 2400's due to the USB issues and upgraded mine/missus PC's with the 2500's

Rocking an I5 750 oced to 3.3GHZ on a MSI P55m gaming board with 8GB RAM at 1600 and a R9 280X.
For a budget config, it is nice and it performes like a champ.

i sold one recently to a friend at 3.2Ghz with 1600Mhz ram, and a 6770 1GB. Runs fallout 4 at 1080p, low settings and 60FPS smooth.

Those old chips cant be ruled out yet, its really the boards that hold them back (no sata 3 for SSD's, no USB 3, etc)
