Been a while... I5 2500K @ 4.8Ghz

Evening folks! I finally got back into some overclocking after a long break . I built an I5 2500K system on a Gigagyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 mobo. It was raining today so I sat down and really started fiddling with it and got the water cooling in. Currently running at 4.6Ghz @1.284V according to cpu-z. Temps top out around 75C per Core Temp. I can get POST @ 4.9 and 5Ghz but it just hangs and reboots at the POST screen. I tried increasing the voltage all the way to 1.7v just to see if it would at least POST but no dice . At any rate I'm still quite happy with it.

For the higher multiplier you likely needed to enable pll over voltage in the bios. Congrats on the overclock!
