Welcome to the Tom's Hardware Intel Overclocking Club!

*****NEW SUBMISSION METHOD***** SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE INFORMATION

In order to be a part of the Intel Overclocking Club, you need to post your overclocking scores and you will be added to the list of the Intel OC Club.


There will be two lists of club members, one with a stable overclock and one that can be unstable(insane overclocking).

General Rules


  • Only post overclocking related information, don't post your builds here.
  • Tom's Hardware, myself, Best of Media Group, or anyone else are not responsible for CPU, Mobo or component damage caused by overclocking. Proceed at your own risk!
  • Must post in following format:

    Name:
    CPU:
    Motherboard:
    CPU Voltage:
    CPU Bus Speed/Multiplier:
    Clock Speed:
    RAM:
    Cooling:
    OS:

    An example would be this:
    Quote:
    Name: amuffin
    CPU: i7-2600K
    Motherboard: Asrock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3
    CPU Voltage: 1.4V
    CPU Bus Speed/Multiplier: 100*48
    Clock Speed: 4.8ghz
    RAM: Patriot Sector 7 1333mhz DDR3 9-9-9-24-2T
    Cooling: Watercooling Loop
    OS:Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
    CPU-Z Validation: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2426090

  • Must have a screenshot. (Stability must include CPU-Z and a stress testing program, unstable/insane only needs CPU-Z screenshot/validation)


    Stable OC rules

  • Take a screenshot of CPU-Z next to a running stress testing program (EX: 10 runs of Intel Burn In on medium)
  • Posts without a CPU-Z Validation next to a stress testing program to verify stability will not be added, but they will be added to the Unstable/Insane Overclocking section.


    Unstable/Insane Overclocking Rule

  • Must post a CPU-Z validation.


    Remember, give as much information as you can, so we can identify and add you into the club.

    NEW SUBMISSION METHOD


    Hi all! Here is a new way of submitting to the club! This makes our lives (Novuake and me) a lot easier!

    Good to see another club here.

    Here is my contribution to the club, not fully stable but stable enough for OC competitions and benchmark programs. Not CPU-Z validation link, but CPU isn't more in my hands...

    So the voltage doesnt fluctuate creating vdroop. I set mine to LLC to 3 so it does fluctuate, just not that much.

    Why LLC disabled?


    Actually, you asked ME, lol, but I knew someone would ask eventually. My board only has LLC options for enabled/disabled/auto and enabled causes the voltage to be extremely high for some reason (that I seriously I have NO idea why) and auto doesn't seem to do anything at all. That's OK though, I can live with it as long as 1.272V is stable under load. The even more strange part of it is that I need 1.328V to be stable at basically idle.... If anyone can explain how that's possible, when 1.272V is stable under load, I'd love to know, lol.

    (4+2) Phase Power Design


    Yeah, I thought that might have something to do with it. I should have gotten a better board. :pfff: 
    July 12, 2012 8:30:55 PM

    Speaking of ASUS and LLC and high voltage...

    I have the p8z68-v board (12 phase power :-) ) and a 25k, and I used to run 4.5ghz at around 1.3vcore, not offset. I also used to use 100% LLC. Until one day I lowered my vcore from 1.3 to 1.29 and my cpu fried itself on restart. (Judging by the amount of heat coming out of my exhaust at that moment and the amount of heat that exhausted when running prime at about 63 degrees, I approximate the cpu temp at that moment was at least 150c. I kid you not.)
    Needless to say my cpu was dead. Mobo was fine, PSU was fine, cpu was dead. Was it my fault? I'm a first time builder, this was my first time OC, but I personally believe it was the LLC that killed my cpu. I had been running these settings (PPL overvolt on, cpu spread spectrum on, LLC 100%, 1.3vcore, 4.5ghz) for weeks stable. Then I decided to go into BIOS, bring vcore down to 1.29 and all of the sudden sizzle sizzle.

    I've researched to no end what put me out of 180 euro, and the only conclusion I can draw is that the LLC somehow overcompensated and fried my chip. Don't tell me my VRMs blew or anything (which I am just know learning could happen at 100% LLC) because I put a new 25k in later and my system worked fine.

    Dont know the moral of the story. Buy gigabyte? (I dont like the posts that end in people saying "dont OC you moron." Of course you can tell I still do, I just don't know how long it will take me to feel comfortable at >4ghz again...)
    July 13, 2012 12:50:01 PM

    Kinda odd...the chip should have safeguards to prevent it from getting that hot. You may have a bad board, but that is just a guess. CPU doesnt control voltage or heat.

    Stable OC rules

  • Take a screenshot of CPU-Z next to a running stress testing program (10 runs of Intel Burn In on medium)
  • Posts without a CPU-Z Validation next to a stress testing program to verify stability will not be added, but they will be added to the Unstable/Insane Overclocking section.


  • So Prime95 runs are not accepted as stable overclocks?

    Intel burn is only fully effective with a 64bit operating system, so anyone still running WinXP 32bit, WinVista 32bit, or Win7 32bit, will be excluded because Intel burn is not full stability assuredness, simply because it cannot fully test the memory.

    I would say that anyone that can run at least 1 hr of Prime95s Blend Test should be allowed as a stable entry.

    You can do it with prime95 without problems, Intel burn test is just for example.

    Passed Prime95 for hours but had to up my vcore for IBT, resulting in me hitting 90 degrees which obviously isn't good. so i'm gonna scale back to 4.5GHz, the settings for which i've thoroughly tested in IBT (with safer temps). One core is cooler than the rest, but at 4.5 temps weren't high enough to justify sorting it out (~83 on IBT, 60-70 in Metro/BF3). anyways, enough of my life story:

    Nice OC, although 90 degrees is cutting it a little close, dont you think? Have you tried a lower voltage? I've run 4.5ghz on only 1.3 volts... That would lower your temps by a good chunk.

    yeah it's FAR too hot, i was surprised. i've been stable in games & Prime up until i tried IBT at 4.6 (as i say i'd tested it on 4.5, mustve forgot to do it again). my machine was on for 18 hours before i did this but still, it's pretty sketchy. i don't understand the need for such a high voltage either, seeing how so many people have achieved similar results with a lower vcore. was at 1.35 which seemed fine, but i kept getting a BSOD in IBT.

    100mhz shouldnt make too much difference i guess. it'll just make me feel less manly and awesome :(  lol
    July 16, 2012 7:30:23 PM

    4.5+ seems to be sketchy. I had issues @ 4.5 which is why I am at 4.6. Maybe try changing all your ram timings to 9-9-9, do you use offset or fixed?

    yknow i was actually gonna ask if the timings could be the problem, 9-9-9 is stock but after experimenting/getting annoyed a lot i managed to boot without Prime errors for 2-3 hours on 9-8-9. couldn't get a memory dump because it hanged at 95% but the BSOD was "A clock interrupt was not received"; which i googled around for but a few people seemed doubtful it was RAM related. do you think it's worth changing it back then?

    vcore is on fixed mode, i just found it easier to get my brain around

    (i'll start a new thread if this turns into a whole investigation lol, so as to not hijack)
    July 16, 2012 9:53:59 PM

    Nah you can keep it here. I mean...It kinda is the purpose of this thread.

    Ram timings can be an issue. you also want to make sure you disable:
