i5 6600k Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Overclocking Limits

Hey All, Just curious what's the max you've pushed the i5 6600k with the Hyper 212 cooler and still have safe temps? Right now I'm leaning towards 4.3 since I still have the stock case fan. I do plan on upgrading later. Let me know what all setups you are running and what you've safely pushed. Thanks!

  1. Best answer
    I managed to get mine to 4.5 Ghz. It depends on the chip, mobo, and memory's capabilities, as well as the cooling solution.

    CPU: Core i5-6600k
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
    Motherboard: MSI Z170-A-G45 Gaming
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (8GBx2) DDR4 2666
  2. I was able to make it all the way up to 4.8 before I got the BSoD. Not to bad at all. I did end up leaving it at the 4.3 just for good reliable power. More than happy with how it performs. I just came from the amd 6300 4.3 and the gtx 750 ti sc, so biiiiig difference. Lol.
  3. I've had mine sitting at 4.4GHz for about 4 months now, no problems.
