Cant overclock 2600k Tags: Overclocking Asus Last response: September 27, 2012 5:31 PM in Overclocking Share OC to 5GHz September 24, 2012 5:04:29 PM Hi all, i just bought an h100 hoping to overclock my 2600k to 4.5 ghz (or thereabouts) in an asus p8z68-v pro but when i came to put my multiplier and voltages in, it showed my my "target speed" correctly. However when i saved changes and reset, the clock did not increase, and stayed at stock 3400mhz it is probably a noob issue, but could someone help? More about : overclock 2600k Z1NONLY a b K Overclocking September 24, 2012 9:10:19 PM I have the same chip and a Z77 v-pro board, overclocked to 4.0Ghz @1.208v. There are many programs that won't show the overclock. (Windows still says I'm at 3.4 as well as some other programs.) What program(s) are telling you that you're running at 3.4Ghz? Also Are you checking your speed while under load or idle? OC to 5GHz September 25, 2012 3:48:51 PM Hi thanks for the quick reply The bios tells me that in asus ez mode, or the first menu tab in advanced mode. I have enabked PLL overvoltage, load line is at ultra high would you advise offset mode or manual for voltage? (if manual, v about 1.27) Related resources I7 2600k - Accidental Overclock ? - Forum I7 2600K Stable 4.5GHz overclock ? - Forum Time to overclock my core i7 2600k . - Forum I7 2600k overclock - Forum I5 2500k / i7 2600k Overclock Results - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Whatever offset and LLC combo that gets you to ~1.3v should be good for +/-4.5Ghz Try CPU-Z software to see what clock speed you are running. (Check it while the CPU is under load with Prime95 or some other load test software.) OC to 5GHz September 26, 2012 5:50:44 PM Thanks, it was me being stupid. booted into windows and w/ p95 clock = 4500mhz my voltage is 1.44~1.46 so i will reduce load line C thanks loads though! footlong96 September 27, 2012 7:00:03 AM Pretty high voltages. I usually try to stay under 1.4volts. amuffin a c 149 K Overclocking a b Ĉ ASUS September 27, 2012 8:01:55 AM Around 1.3V should get you to 4.5ghz, 1.4+ V should not be done on a closed loop cooler. 4Ryan6 a c 206 K Overclocking September 27, 2012 8:47:23 AM A 2600K should run 4500 using way less voltage than the 1.44~1.46 you're running, you should drop down to the 1.275v area and start your overclocking process over testing for stability from there.
