    Default Advice please on what I can get from this setup - i5-2500K

    Currently have the following :

    i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz with Cooler Master Hyper 212 +
    GA-Z68XP-UD3 (rev. 1.0) Motherboard with F10 Bios
    ZALMAN Z11 Case
    Corsair GS 600 PSU
    8GB Memory (Ballistix HERE)
    2 x 1TB HDD's WD Blue and Green
    1 x DVDRW

    With the specs mentioned above I know its not a crazy setup but it does me so far...
    What I want to know is can I overclock the CPU a bit more with the Stock cooler on it?
    If so a how to please... noob

    not sure how far you could push with stock cooler,maybe 3.6-3.8ghz? I depends on each chip and how much cpu v it needs

    you can try with a 36x cpu multi,medium loadline calibration

    or cpu voltage set to normal and +0.010v dvid

    I've read a bit about this and most of what I'm seeing says don't even try to overclock this CPU on the stock cooler. Regardless, you can try but you might damage it.

    Your board supports the Intel Extreme Tuner app: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 (rev. 1.0). I'd use the autotune settings and monitor temps of the CPU. If your CPU gets to about 80 - 90c IMO I'd scale back. One thing to note though, if you for instance test by running a game or benchmark like 3D Mark, while overclocked, the temps on the CPU can rise very, very fast. Might even be too fast for you to stop anything.

    If you really want to OC, you should consider a water cooler. They are pretty cheap now. On Newegg I've seen em for like $50.00.

    But why are you OCing anyway? Gaming? What video card do you have?
