Default 2500K + P8P67 Pro Overclocking

Well I decided to go the Sandy Bridge road for a while so I dropped some cash on the latest NCIX bundle deal, 2500K processor and P8P67 Pro motherboard for three hundred and something dollars. I havent had a whole lot of time to fool around with this processor, the VID seemed to be around 1.14v and my motherboard managed to auto tune the processor to 4.5ghz with the click of a button.... a little more voltage was added then I think is necessary as it peeks at around 1.36v.

Over the next few days ill be running some tweaks of my own to see how high I can get this thing flying.

All of this will be done with a corsair H50 cooler, and Gskill Ripjaw 1600 7-8-7-7 CL 21 ram.

Ill post my screenshots and findings here. For now I wanted to share the auto tunes attempt, which from what ive read is pretty high for autos.
