Hey guys,

I overclocked my cpu today. Its at stock runs 2.3GHZ, I got it up to 2.5ghz and I was wondering what this will do to the lifepan of this cpu. This doesn't seem like a big jump from the threads I have read. But I am just wondering you know?

Here is my CPU-Z:

For some reason I cant get it to validate. When I had it at 2.41GHZ it validated, but ever since I bumped it to 2.5ghz it won't validate.


I just wanna know how far on STOCK COOLING can I go?

I ahve Screenshots, but there is no upload here :D

Anyway let me know guys!

Ok thanks. But what do you think my risk is to my processor as of now? Overclocked to 2.5GHZ from 2.3GHZ, running at 1.25v 9max)?
