    Hmmm interesting see i run my i5 @ 5Ghz every bench not one problem from day 1(silicon lottery 4tw) i pushed almost 5.2 with my i5 a little more tweaking and i could have it give me a week or 2 ile get right on it nice to see another OC board
    Tho it would be nice to see an overall system bench result (example) max oc on CPU and GFX and scores just a heads up.

    I am still working on overclocking my system some more, but this is what I have so far. I am running with 16 GB of GSKILL 10666 RAM, a AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE, Using Corsair H80 closed loop for cooling.

    Not sure if you need anything else.

    Those temps are scary as fuck on a phenom II.....and now I'm going to have to surpass that...only have mine running at a constant 4ghz with a slight voltage change

    Edit: well with a little effort, I was able to get it up to 4329. Was running 3dmark 11 as a intial test....and tried to push my gpu to the max.....didn't like that...but it didn't blue screen for me just a bit some lines and artifacting....<.<

    More Edits: And I concede for now....only because I can't push the voltage past 1.5, it seemed stable in 3dmark 11....until I hit the physics test.....and I tried switching around a couple things but ended up having to give up in the end....

    well at first i was having trouble using only the multiplier but went pretty smooth when i upped the fsb slightly

    Well i decided to go to my local PC store and pick up a h60, they knocked £10 off the retail price so very happy about that.

    Well reciently I have been using the MSI overclock button, but i reciently been reading that the 2500 k i5 overclocks well on the stock voltage.

    After hearing this information I thought I give it ago myself. So i started at 4ghz but ... it just wanted to see how far i could push on the stock voltage, I think increased it to 4.5 ghz and stuck there. Overal I have very happy with it (highest temp at prime for 1 hour was 60 degrees)

    I have a screen shot here of the cpu idling with the gpu also using speed fan and CPU-Z together

    Finaly I like to add that these corsair products are very useful and the build quality I find is excellent and it was well worth the £40 I paid

    Just thought you guys would share your thoughts on these coolers ?

    Thanks for reading

    Looking at your screenshot, your base clock is 99.8MHz. That loss of 0.2MHz is usually due to Spread Spectrum being enabled. If you disable it (you don't need it unless you're surrounded by a mass of other computers with a 100MHz base clock), you'll gain 0.2MHz x 45, or 9MHz... and potentially some stability. Spread Spectrum will fluctuate your base clock. That fluctuation can sometimes lead to instability.

    I personally love the H-series coolers. I've got a i5 2500k @ 5ghz using the H60.
    Gets up to 70-75 degrees whilst stress testing though, so I wont be pushing any higher without anything more beefy.

    I made it passed the 14hr mark in prime95, I am going to go until the last FFT (which happens at 17hrs 30min). I also did custom blend so that it would stress my ram as well for super stability. CPU-Z name is legends0 (my hwbot account), I can upload another later if you really need me to.

    EDIT: All FFT's passed (18hrs prime95)
