I7 2600k not reaching 4.6ghz

Last response: in Overclocking

February 19, 2013 4:20:23 AM

my config:-

haf 912
maximus v gene
i7 2600k
gskill trident x dd3 1600mhz 7-8-8-24
1 tb hdd
asus hd 6950
cx 750w psu
h80i hydro cooling system.

I overclocked for the first time today and these are the changes that i made in bios :-

1) ai overclock tuner set to manual
2) turbo ratio -> by all cores (2nd option)
3) set it at 44 for 4.4ghz
4) memory freq - ddr3 1600
5) dram timings i set it to 7-8-8-24
6) disabled enhanced intel smart technology
7) set load line caliberation to 75%
8) vcore switching frequency set to manual and changed the figure from 300 to 350
9) cpu voltage i set it to 1.37
10) ram voltage to 1.5v

i ran prime95 and did that blend test but it's reaching 84-86 degree celcius if it's beyond 4.3 ghz ... i want 4.6ghz stable .. can someone please guide me as to which other settings should i change in order to get 4.6ghz stable at max 80 degree celcius temperature ??

P.S. :- i did benchmarking and i got this result ... is tht good ?

Hi,

If you want 4.6Ghz with temps <80C then your chip will need to be capable of doing 4.6Ghz with quite abit less than your current voltage.

Have you tried a lower voltage than 1.37V with 4.4Ghz?

i tried lowering the voltage to 1.325 for 4.4ghz and it's running between 74-77 degree celcius temp ... touched 81 once but it's back to 77 or so ... is that cool ?? it's been 15 minutes since i've been running this software ... lets c wt happens .. so is it possible to touch 4.6ghz ???

It's pretty interesting! My 2600K can't hit 4.6ghz without going over a vcore of 1.4v.

Why don't you just stay at 4.5ghz?

Ok well that's a good start, keep on lowering it a bit at a time and test stability for 10 minutes in prime95 then go back into the BIOS and lower the voltage again, keep repeating this until it fails the 10 minutes of prime95, then at that point, go back into the BIOS and increase the voltage slightly and up the Multiplier to 45 (for 4.5Ghz) and re-test for stability.

@amuffin --- dude it's not good to put it at 1.4 vcore ...

bro, i've disabled cpu spread spectrum and i ran prime 95 blend test for 10 minutes as u said ... 4.4ghz at 1.34 vcore .... it touched 82 degree celicus max in that 10 min. test and when i stopped it , it said 'torture test completed 7 tests in 10 minutes , 0 errors 0 warnings .. so now what do you want me to do ?? lower the vcore to 1.35 and run that test again for 10 minutes ?? wt still confuses me is that when will it not exceed 80 degree celcius or max 82 ?? :(

Yeah now lower it to something like 1.33V (1.35V would be higher) and re-test again, if we can get the voltage low enough your temps will be <80C

No 10 minutes is certainly not good enough to measure if an overclock is stable but we are just seeing if the reduced voltage has made the overclock completely unstable or not, obviously we could reduce the voltage and test for 8 hours and then repeat the process but that would take a very long time.

When you're happy with your overclock then you should stability test for at least 8 hours.

i lowered it down to 1.31 and it was running at 77 79 .. didnt exceed 80 .. then i dropped it down to 1.29 and as soon as i started prime 95 , it crashed and bsod appeared .. so now i'm trying at 1.3 ... when i check on cpu-z , my core speed and multiplier keeps fluctuating ... i have disabled intel speedstep feature and i've also disabled c1 thing .. what's causing that problem ?

Ok, so you've pretty much found the lowest voltage you can use for 4.4Ghz, unfortunately your temps are still pretty high and pushing the overclock further probably isn't a good idea (as temps will rise).

How much is the frequency fluctuating? So you have EIST and all C states disabled?

i ran it at 1.3 just now and it was playing between 74-77 .. max was 80 .. didnt exceed 80 ... just touched 80 once otherwise it was playing between 74-77 .. i disabled c1 and beneath it there's some c3 report and c6 report which i have not disabled .. the frequency fluctuates from 1600 mhz to 4400 mhz ... i forgot to mention that i changed that option in bios cpu level up which stated 4.40g 4.60g and something like that to 4.40g ... what do u recommend now ?? should i lower it down to 1.295 and run the test again ??

Disable all C states if it's fluctuating under load.

You could try 1.295V but I don't think the temps will be low enough for you to increase the overclock.

If you want to continue overclocking past 4.4Ghz then you may want to consider a better cooler. Unfortunately even though you've managed to decrease the voltage by quite a bit your current cooler is still struggling to remove the heat.

I run my 2600K at 4.5ghz with a vcore of 1.31. :) 

Heck my chip can hit 5.1ghz at around 1.46v, but I run a custom watercooling loop. ;)

It's possible that the mount of the H80i block on the CPU isn't correct. You could try remounting it, obviously you would need to remove the old thermal paste and apply your own (if you used the stock thermal paste originally).

not showoff bro :(  ... i'm kinda pissed off coz i'm not getting what i should get ... and after a month or so , it'll touch 38 40 degree celcius ... wt do you recommend me to do after considering the present and the future situation ?


I was referring to amuffin about showing off, not you :) 

Not much you can do if you live in a hot country where the ambient temp is really high, even a better cooler would still struggle and would probably only allow you to overclock alittle more.

If I was in your situation I would just leave it at 4.4Ghz and call it a day, I'm sure 4.4Ghz is fast enough right?

Other solutions that cool below ambient are expensive and require alot of research and maintenance and wouldn't be worth the cost IMO.

:o  34C ambient!! wow... Yeah that won't be helping. :lol:

82C is abit hot but if it was me I would leave it as it is (at 4.4Ghz 1.31V) as in day to day usage the load temps should be quite abit lower.
However it's your choice and if you don't feel comfortable with the temps then lower the overclock and voltage.

i play games .. watch videos movies and use internet ... i dont do video rendering and stuff like lthat ... so is it ok to leave 4.4 ghz at 1.31 v core ?? coz prime95 uses 100% of all cores whereas m not gonna do any such thing that'll use 100% of all cores so it'll neva touch 82 that ways .. wtsay ?

Yeah your right, your temps should be much lower under normal conditions (games, videos ETC..).

Keep it as it is ;)

How's your case airflow?

BTW you really don't need to overclock...

You show off :kaola:  Nice CPU you have there though ;) 

Who said I'm showing off? :whistle: 

My 2600K is kind of standard though when it comes to OC.

My 2500K on the other hand can hit 4.5ghz stable at 1.19V. :)

Haha :lol: 

Well your 2600K is much better than the one I had, took 1.5V+ for 5Ghz under water... awful chip.

Nice 2500K too, some people get all the luck! :kaola:

Yep, it's just a lottery. I hope I get a winner next month when I buy a 3930K :??:
