Hi, I was trying to achieve a 7.9 CPU mark on the 'Windows performance evaluation', I got my i7 2600k proc to 4650MHz (stable OC).
4650MHz still showed 7.8 as CPU mark, so I decided to go 1 step further 4690MHz (Bus = 102, Multiplier 46, rest of Bios settings AUTO)
I tested under AIDA64 Extreme, test went well until minute 25, when BOSD appeared.
H80 cooler was at max, TDP was close to 95W.
I wanted to know if achieving 95W would raise a BOSD whose description is shown above.
If so, and assuming H80 was at max, can I conclude I can not go any further?
Can I play with different Bus/Multiplier Settings that would allow me to go further than 4645MHz?
Yes sir you can, but overclocking is something completely up to your own risk.
If you run the processor out of specifications is dangerous for the unit and it eventually could fail. Intel doesn’t provide assistance for overclocking and it is something that we don’t recommend.
