hi all,
so much for my entry level OC capable mobo...

with a non-adjustable vcore, (always on auto, no manual adjust)

i can only OC my i5 2500K to a max stable OC of 4.2 ghz....
more than that, it becomes unstable...

with no option to increase vcore, i cant OC further...

but, is 4.2ghz enough for games,video rendering, 3d rendering?

4.2 is kinda low... :(

4.2GHz... low?

stock is enough for games, video rendering, 3d editing

be happy with what you can get, atleast you broke the 4GHz mark

Are you sure that you can't use offsets?

I can't set a manual, static Vcore on my Asus P8Z68-V LE board either, but I CAN use offsets, which works just as well (and I actually prefer it over a static Vcore).

We have totally different boards, with what I imagine are totally different BIOS's, but I HAVE to believe that can at least use offsets.

Well, I just took a look at the manual for that board, and I don't think you can use offsets either. That's complete BS, actually, for a Z77 (or P67/Z68) board, IMO. Not being able to adjust the Vcore At ALL on a board that you can OC with is just idiotic.

:(  sometimes make me wonder, is it worth my $100 for this board...

but, yeah, the most stable OC i'll get out of this box is 4.2 ghz...huhuhu...

this board only allows multipliers, and DRAM voltages...which is not related to cpu OC'ing at all...

i tried adding a bit bus speed, but in vain, as it is not stable... 4.2 ghz is the stablest...

i think that is the disadvantage of a micro atx Z77 board... less voltage permissible flow on micros...

planning to OC to 4.5 ghz... but my entry level oc board wont allow any vcore, volt offset changes to it..

4.2 ghz is no challenge btw, it can be achieved with a lowly 1.28v
