    hmmm. I don't see why they would say that an I5 is better than an I7. Unless they are just using price for performance. Which then would give the edge to a I5 at stock speeds for gaming.

    Waiting til you get home to see your ppd. You need the F@HMonitor Pro for your phone man. I got it last week set it up and love it.

    Great idea. only trouble is, the only decent phone carrier in my area is Verizon and they want to rape me an additional 40 bucks a month to add web access to my phone.... so I stick with texts and phone calls...

    Sad that some of us live this way..... I'm just happy they finally added DSL to where I live.... there are still some around my area at Verizon's mercy and they're utterly stuck with dial up...... sad but true!

    Oh... and my SMP client is hitting 10k a day... :-)

    Thats too bad about the phone carriers.

    Congrats on hitting 10K!

    Hey! Thanks for the reccomendation to check out overclockers forums etc!

    I read up... and learned a lot!! (Now I really wish I would have purchased the non-locked i5 or even gone with the non-locked i7)

    So when I hit the "performance" settings, it apparently sets my core multipliers to 41!!!! so it's trying to push my poor little i5 at 4100mhz!!! Yeowch!!! Now wonder I was over heating!!!

    So I reset all the settings to default/standard. Then adjusted my core up to 37, so that when Turbo kicked in, I'd hit that 3700mhz I'm supposed to have. Temps ran up to about 72/73° degrees. I didn't let it run for a long period of time or really stress test it, as I really don't want to run at Max temp all the time. So I pulled it back down to about 34. My temps hold at around 65/66°.

    Knowing all this now, I'll probably invest in a good CPU cooler. Gotta make sure it fits in my case though. Rosewill CRUIDER

    Thanks for all your input and assistance. I never had a clue that my Processor really was being overclocked by my overzealous Sabertooth board! :-) Apparently she's a hungry kitty!

    If you can get to 4.1 then that would be great. I think you could get most any air cooler in there. You just may have to remove the big side fan.

    That board is a beast. Hope you make use of it Very Happy

    Ok!!! I got my Cooler! Went with the CM Hyper 212....!

    I'll have to either take the large fan off the side of the case (it's just a tiny bit too large to fit) or shave it down till it does!! We'll see!!!

    Anyway... look below!



    So I got it running. That's under a full load on Prime95.

    Highest the temp has gone is 63°, but quickly pops down to the 58°ish level!!

    And... from all the reading I did, that there is the utter MAX I'll get out of a locked i5, without pushing that Bus Speed any higher, which is iffy stability wise!

    Thanks for all the help and assist!

    I then set the core clock to the standard 100, but kept the multiplier at max (38), So I'm getting 38Ghz, and my CPU temp never gets over 50!!!

    Wow!!! I should have done this sooner!

    Nice first overclock man! I would stay away from the BLK overclocking like you did. Low to mid 60s is a perfectly fine temp for 24/7 use. As you observed already you can see thermals go up exponentially with clock speed.

    What is the max Multiplier you can use with that processor?

    Max Multiplier on an i5 2500 is 38.

    After getting the new cooler on the board (I had to take everything apart) I went in and reset BIOS to the base settings and then hit the performance button.

    It was trying to clock the board with a 41 multiplier, but the CPU only goes to 38, as you saw there in CPUID.

    I'm happy with the 100 and 38 multiplier. System doesn't get over 50 now, which is sweet!

    I figure an extra 114 mhz at this point really isn't worth a HUGE jump in heat.
