The highest vcore voltage on my intel 2500k
Suggest you try an overclocking forum
All I know, is you bump the Voltage up in SMALL increments.
Bump up a small increment, then do a 24 hour burn in.
(Yes. Means computer runs 24 hours straight for the test)
Everything's cool? Then bump the Voltage up another small increment.
Do another 24 hour burn in test.
GO TOO FAR, and things start getting 'bumpy', and eventually system turns off.
GO TOO MUCH at first, and you stand the chance of frying stuff.
Also; the Ram Memory, and expansion slot frequency rate, support changes, when you change the Voltage for the CPU.
You are changing the CPU's front side bus, also. (FSB)
[Frequency Rate = 'Speed'
People understand the term Speed, so they can relate to what is going on.
It is actually a rudimentary term.
Leaves you not exactly knowing what is going on.
A CPU (Processor) has an Oscillator in it. Operates in a frequency rate.
The Front Side Bus (FSB) is measured in a Frequency Rate.
How many Cycles per Second.
Example; CPU operates Up To a maximum frequency rate of 2.4GigaHertz. (2.4GHz)
Means it can operate Up To a frequency rate of 2.4 Billion Cycles per Second.
Mega = approximately 1 Million
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.
(2400MHz = 2.4GHz)
YOUR processor. The one you have now.
Was made with a BUNCH of other processors.
Intel tests them, and has a pass test range.
YOUR CPU may have been at the Bottom of that range, who knows?
This means YOUR CPU may not be able to be overclocked, like Harry's down the street; or some guy/gal on the internet.
THEY may have received a CPU that was in the Middle of the pass test range, or towards the Top.
