Intel Core i7 2600K and Core i5 2500K - PCSTATS.com Intel Core i7 2600K and Core i5 2500K

"By using my standard testbed cooling, the Noctua NH-U12P, they never came out of the 60s Celsius. Fine tuning the voltage would reduce the temperatures even further. With that being said, the overclocks achieved on these two examples of the Sandybridge lineup were literally the highest overclocks I have gotten on air cooling of any kind on any processor. 4.62GHz on the 2600K and 4.77GHz on the 2500K are just amazing for a new architecture and my first run through with them. So what do you say now about overclocking being dead on Sandybridge? Dead? I think not!"
