Tried loads of different settings but cant seem to get stable on any of em.
Even the OC Genie button get the overclock to 4.2GHz but its not stable.
Dont think its the ram, im not touching the BLCK so ram should be ok?
Im quite new to overclocking anyway but this jus seems beyond me...? A decent guide would help but cant find one!
Should i only need to be adjusting Vcore and leave everything else on auto....thats what ive seen on some guides n they hit 4.5GHz no prob?
Ive tried giving everything more voltage but cant get it steady at all?
even@ 4GHz on auto its unstable....ive been told to use this as a starting point but cant even get that far.
Im startin to think i could be pushing the PSU too far...?
OK, check my rig, I have a similar one to you.
What kind of cooler do you have? (just asking because a good cooler is necessary for high overclocks on this CPU)
1 - Turn off Turbo mode.
2 - Set base multiplier to 42 (lets try for 4.2Ghz)
3 - VCore (for 4.2 - give it 1.25Volts)
4 - CPU I/O - I set mine to 1.15 (lower later)
5 - System Agent - I set mine to 1.2 (lower later)
6 - EIST - disabled
7 - In the BIOS main menu screen there are 5 buttons (the middle button is overclocking). The far left button is green and says about power saving. There are two options on that list, set the first option to "disabled".
Save and exit
