Whats going on with 2600k OC on Asrock P67

I'm having trouble with my 2600k, changed my vcore to 1.2 and then to 1.23, but it keeps BSODing. Does the 2600k require more vcore than the typical 2500k?

Is 1.25 vcore on the high side for a 4.0 oc?

I'm at 4Ghz with 1.208v but that's under full load. It's closer to 1.25 pre-droop.

You may just need a little more voltage.

BSOD is usually caused by a ram problem. Try bumping dimm voltage to 1.55v.

OK , Why are you messing with the voltages anyway's.

The way to oc a 2600k is to bump up the CPU ratio. - the mb will handle the voltage settings and
then drop the frequency if the cpu is getting too hot.

I'm actualy impressed with my asrock mb and the extreme tuning utily that comes with it.

I'm at 4.5 with it dropping between 4.1 and 4.2 under full load. of course thats using water cooling.

I am going to 2nd geekapproved's thought. Most people can hit 4GHz at stock voltage with no problem, it is much more likely the fact that you have 4 dimms of ram, which can be problematic at high frequencies. Upping that voltage a little bit may fix your problem.

Though you may have just gotten 'lucky' and received a dud chip, which does happen, but it is rare.

I am hitting 4.2GHz under load with my locked non-K i7 with no problem, and then it drops down to 1.6GHz at idle. The SB chips are just phenomenal to work with

I have found in overclocking both AMD and Intel rigs that motherboards don't "handle" voltage so much as go crazy-stipid-high with voltage as you increase clock speed.

I have used offsets of at least -0.070v with both. (And I'm stable)

I changed the voltage to auto, and I'm running cpu z right now while prime 95, temps are 60 on load. 4.0ghz is using 1.29v....bad chip?

I ran memtest prior for about an hour, and all sticks were cleared.

I ran prime 95 for about 5 hours stable no BSOD this time, I changed the settings to offset mode from fixed and lets the motherboard just adjust it. Temps were 55-60 on 100% load at 4.0GHZ. Vcore fluctuated from 1.277-1.31

Stable is good, but 1.3v sounds rather high for 4ghz. I would at least try to use a negative offset to bring the voltage down a bit.
