On my ASUS x58 sabertooth motherboard,I have a auto OC feature. There was a 3.8 and a 4.2 crazy. This feature oced everything and was stable. Do the sandy bridge MB have this feature. If so what kind of clocks do you get.

They all have some OC utility, ASUS has also OC auto in the BIOS that looks like this...

I thing that setting with flames on the right side went to 4.2GHz.

It was simple, set it and forget it : )

From what I been following on all the OC forums, the 2600k's usually hit higher OC's than the 2500k's....they often turn off HT tho.

If you are limited by heat, then having HT "on" will mean about 7C. If ya have a good cooler.....this is going to be less of a concern.

On the 2600k's, I usually set them up for everyday boots at 4.6 Ghz w/ HT ON under one BIOS profile 4.8 GHz to 5.0 Ghz w/ HT OFF

On 2500k's I get mostly 4.6 to 4.8's unless i start turning stuff off. If ya use offset method, you will downclock when load drops....but ya can get higher OC's using fixed numbers.
