Postposted on Mon Jul 25, 2011 5:29 pm

hi everyone. I'm building a new pc, and due to the region im in, i have few options. Do you think that the coolermaster v6 gt will set me back for oc'ing a 2500k cpu?

That is a massive, massive, dual-fan tower cooler. Should easily handle a moderate-to-significant overclock of a 2500k, assuming you have decent air flow in your case and ambient temperatures aren't severe. I would say that 4.4GHz with temps around 60-65C should be pretty realistic.

Got 4.8-5.0GHz out of mine with a Corsair H60, but I might have gotten a good one.

yeah. actually I saw some review, on youtube. Some guys said that it's not good for the Intel CPU's, what I think its not true.
I use AC in my room and i always set the temperature to20 degrees celsius, so I think the cooler will perform well.
Im planning to buy a Coolermaster elite 430, because my budget for the chassis is low, I could put some more money and buy a X-Five raynor, but it's being very
hard to find reviews, so Im not trusting it.

Thank u guys

I see no reason why you shouldn't get a respectable overclock with that cooler. Make sure you also have a strong power supply with a good efficiency rating. That tends to be something a lot of people overlook. I don't know much about that CM case but just make sure it has good airflow.

For the psu i've chosed to buy a xigmatek nrp-pc602 600watt with 80 bronze certification. It supports 2 pcie 6pin 2 pcie 8pin. And much more cables. The 12v current is high, i just cant remember how much. I believe that is enough if i oc the 2500k and it gets to the 130watt power draw alone.
