2500K w/ Asrock P67 Extreme4
im running the 2500k with my Asrock p67 Extreme4 gen3 Mobo, im doing stress tests now with Prime95, everything seems to be stable at 57 degrees running at 4.4 ghz, voltage at 1.278, any pointers on what i can alter to get this thing up to 4.7 possibly?
lldsgt said:Hah, old thread, but i didnt really have a reason, just felt like doing it, i spend a few weeks getting a nice solid OC and have the Hyper 212 Evo cooler on it.
Got it up to 4.612 at 1.36v 62 full load 28 idle. 44 multiplier @ 104.4 Bus speed &Memory at 1672
Yes this is older, but it was your own thread, so no problem with that. My question to you is why even mess with the BCLK? Just set the multi to 46 and the BCLK back to 100 and be done with it. Also, OC'ing the RAM above 1600 is basically worthless with SB anyway. 1600 with good timings (assuming your RAM is 1600) is plenty.
Also pt. 2, why 1.36V? You should be able to go a little lower than that for 4.6GHz. Every chip is different, sure, but I'm at 4.6 @ 1.344V. I consider that a little high even, for 4.6, but that's what's stable for me.
Yeah i hear ya, but i wasnt trying to just set the mult to 46 and end it or put turbo boost on 4.6, was looking to have a little fun with it, experiment, enjoy it a bit, so sitting down for 5 minutes, changing 1 thing and going on with my life wasnt really what i was looking for.
As for that voltage, before i went deeper into it and messed with the BUS speed i was at 1.34v and was holding iffy. crashed after about 20 hours of stress testing prime95 and ran a little high in temp, was sitting at 66 max load and about 34 idle. i guess thats normal but i knew that i could get it lower than that so i tampered with it a bit and when i was done im running prime95 small FFT, large FFt and blend 36 hours no problem never breaking 65, sitting stable at 62.
since then I redid my cable management, took out the HDD cage in my Haf912 cooler master case, and put another fan for push/pull on the Hyper212 Evo and its running at 59-60 or so.
