Default 2500k I thought I couldnt get past 4.5ghz is OK

As it turns out over-voltage doesn't kill the CPU but also I had my fans controlled by the motherboard so the maximum wasn't being reached.

Now pushing past 4.75ghz easily and maybe I'll put a more powerful fan on there ,The CPU heat wasn't an issue ,Just the motherboard vrm's and whatnot i'm guessing were getting too hot before to get past 4.5.

It makes no difference to anything but I thought I had a bad chip but it's fine.
