    Question Overclocking Core i5 2500k

    Hi,
    Im a newbie at overclocking, but then all of us were newbies at some point, so here's my question, whats the safe upper limit vcore for overclocking a i5 2500k @ 5ghz, im currently at 4.7ghz 1.37~1.42 which is the lowest i can get to make it stable, tried multiplier 50x and after 5 mins or so, i get a BSOD, i've read that some people can get past the 5ghz mark on the same processor. any info would be appreciated.

    it depends on your cpu,some will clock to 5ghz+ some wont

    your really at the limit for ssafe 24/7 voltages around the 1.4v mark

    you could try tweaking offset voltage and a lower llc level to try and improve on cpu voltage and stability

    thanks, its not gonna be 24/7 oc, what vcore should i aim for @ 4.5ghz for 24/7? i am an average gamer so any boost in FPS would be helpful and also what would be better, overclocking my CPU or GPU for getting more FPS
