Not sure what to make of this...

My ambient temp is 25c and from a cold start my cpu is about 30c. Once the system has been on for about 5 minutes the cpu temp drops to 19c/20c.

Just done a bit of testing by playing half hour of command and conquer 3 on full graphical settings @ 1280 x 1024 and AI suite and the bios both show cpu temp at 22c. This is using the on chip gpu.

Is this game just way way to easy for my system to play or is there something wrong here?

Is it me or does your graphics card hangs a bit?
And where does the lower tube go?
Case is amazing. This corsair case came out with 5 stars from me.

That video card is definitely hanging. I did a dry run with stock cooler (direct CU II) and it was pretty much doing the same thing. Infact using the stock cooler, the hanging was causing the heatsink to get in the way of the fan. The sound it made was like a fork in a blender I had to tie the PCIe power cables up to keep the board from slouching so much

The water block for the card is really heavy. So no doubt why it's doing that. Plus the water and the SLI bridge is not helping. I think i'm customer 002 for this waterblock. I should of went with a reference design board

I hope the tubing will keep it stabilized

P.S the tube at the bottom is to drain the system.

I get that too maxmekker. I choose to believe the lower temp

(it's a pain getting old ) So anyways, Bios #0706 is now 'Official' I guess as maybe as a safety backup from the issues #0902 had ? yet Asus will still fix and reclassify 0902 from beta back to official ? .... so it's easy to get this all twisted, especially since the Asus reps ... Raja/Brian/Mason/et all don't seem to be saying a word anywhere about any of this ?
Im pretty sure that 706 is the newest build by asus. In all of the asus MB I have owned (or built for others) they often release a beta version with a higher number than the official build that they release soon after... I dont know why they do that, but just look into some of the other boards on their site and you will see what I mean.

Thanks for the help so far.

Would really appreciate some quick and simple answers on the following tho as i need to know if my chip is not performing as expected and if i have an issue with the seller.

System seems stable enough running a few games overclocked at 4.6 but prime95 crashes it within a minute. Temperatures are always low when this happens.

So the question is are you guarenteed a certain amount of overclock with a 2600k and if so how much?

I just wanted to nip this problem in the bud if i have to get the cpu replaced.

Also whats a good way of testing my ram thoroughly so i can rule that out?

Many thanks.

Id use memtest to rule out bad ram.

As far as on OC on ram and cpu use a custom test of p95 w/ 90% of mem.

What are your voltages and what other settings have you touched in bios to get to 4.6?

As far as a guarantee there is none of course, but most will easily get 4.6 and more than likely higher on good cooling... You just have to get your settings right to achieve stability.

Ive owned a pc for decades but this was my first ever go at overclocking. I only attempted it as from reading this thread it seemed 100% guarenteed if you were using this motherboard (which id already bought anyway) just by setting the 4.60 option in the bios alone.

If ive got the wrong end of the stick and its not always that easy then fair do's

I am worried that i may have a faulty cpu tho and weather i should be having words with the original owner?

Cooling seems to be holding up very well on this system and the crashes seem to be at low temps so are you saying that its just a case of doing some complicated manual overclocking?

Also what do you mean by using prime95 with 90% ram, more details please as i cant find any obvious options.

Many thanks.

Not 100% will pass the 4.6 test but most should... try the 4.2 and see what happen. If you really need those 400MHz then try running memtest86+ to test your RAM if the problem coud come from there. What RAM you bought? 1.65v?

OC with sandy is much easier than some older chips, however...


Here are the stable voltages others have used for that OC... (taken from Sandy Stable Club)

gessay 4601.0mhz1.336v

Face69 4600.7mhz1.344v

3xVicious 4600.2mhz1.280v

franktitude 4600.2mhz1.312v

massaskillz 4599.8mhz1.336v

It is most definitely not just as easy as setting it to 46 multi. In fact you are not guaranteed to hit anything above intels stock clocks. That said most chips will easily hit 4.6, you just need to read up a bit more. A good place to start is in the OC section that LAKF has placed on the first post in this thread, or the Sandy Stable Club I have linked to above.

Some in here use the automatic OC in our boards bios, but this will not always make a stable OC (it will not be as efficient as a lower clocked stable chip not to mention possible BSOD etc.) and if you have a good chip it pumps more volts than necessary into it which not only is wasteful but has the potential to degrade your chip faster.

As far as P95 heres a pic of what I mean by 90% (though a blend test will work this gives you a more complete stability test)



Hope that helps a bit... Once you have read up a bit and tried out a different setup for your OC come back and tell us what you got/or any further problems.

Dont let it fool you though it is not what I would call "complicated manual overclocking". It is manual and will take a small amount time, but youll be much happier with your OC if you do it.
