Silverstone FT02 and Silver Arrow make good buddies!
I finaly got around properly putting some voltage into my 2500k chip, I got it rock stable at 4789Mhz@1.410v. Ill do a full system build thread tomorow or something once i get some decent pictures but here is what I got so far.
You guys think I can push it more?


The system (sorry for the low res shit phone pic)

system specs are:
Silverstone FT02
Asrock Extreme4 mobo
2500k @ 4.8Ghz
Corsair Dominator 1600 ram
Asus GTX570 DirectCU2
Thermalright Silver Arrow HSF
XFX 750W black edition

Hahaha was gonna say the same thing. Voltage is in the right range though...run that P95 blend for 12 hours and get back to us :P

Also, recommend running either RealTemp (which also has a timer, so start it at the same time as P95 for double verification on length of run) OR the latest CoreTemp...both will monitor your current temp + give you a max over time number (ie, if it hit 80C but hours ago, you will see 80C as your max). Report back with temps. **EDIT** I see the HW monitor with temps now. Guarantee, you'll see a lot more than what you're getting now if you let Prime 95 run.

I'm at 4.8 at 1.428v (could not stabilize at a reported 1.416, the same number showing on your CPUz), max temp 70C peak, 65-66 avg load (22C ambient) if you want a frame of reference.

I understand the need to run a 12h prime for rock solid stability but bottom line I only use my comp for fun, and well i want to keep the electric bill low so ill pass on that :P It hasnt crashed any program since the OC, very stable for what I do!
