Reset EVERYTHING back to defaults ... and leave all settings on the AUTO DEFAULTS, except ...

- CPU Level Up = 4.6 GHz

Ai Overclock Tuner = X.M.P.

- That's it! Simple as that! biggrin.gif to get you at 4.6 GHz to start with ... do you really need to OC beyond that ? then read the Front Page OC drop down spoiler

How did I OC? | CPU Level Up = 4.6 | Ai Overclock Tuner = X.M.P. | That's it! Simple as that! biggrin.gif
To enable voltage drop on idle:
* Go under Digi+ VRM/POWER Control
--- set VCore Load-line Calibration to 75% or 100% and VCore Phase Control to Optimized
* Go back to main menu
--- set CPU Voltage to Offset Mode

I didnt think the "factory overclocks" were actually that good.... too high voltage, etc....

I thought the same as well. I brought my voltage to 1.30 and multi at 45. Changed dram voltage to match the memory as well as the timings. That has been stable since day one.

Did you do anything with the VRM settings, since there are so many?

Oh ... sorry the OTHER THIRTEEN guides at Overclocking I posted  ALL also don't help you ... guess you've got it all under controll and don't need help though rolleyes.gif

The voltage are a bit higher to be sure it catch up most of the CPU. If they had choose to go with the lowest edge, many CPU would fail because some need a little more voltage. So they went with a oretty 'safe' voltage that should be good for everyone.

That's exactly what X.M.P. is for. It use the factory OC certified settings from manufacturer so not much trying to play with the settings by yourself, unless you want to go a bit higher but again, it was proved that from 1600 to 1866 for exemple, there wasn't much of a difference, except maybe for benchmarking.

Dick much?

I just asked, that was it. I know how to OC. Everything on my Asrock was great. I switched to this board, and it has 500+ more options than my Asrock did. Was just looking for some baseline settings to start with.

Thanks for the 14 things you posted though....
post #5449 of 7108
thank you guys .... i try the xmp setting at 4.6 ghz and its work perfectly for me ; i5-2500k, coolmaster hyper 212 plus with asus maximus genz gen3 z68 and gskill 1866 mhz . i try many setting before and all result of freez or blue screen so now iam really happy like that, thanks.
post #5450 of 7108
Iam doing prime95 now since 2 hour and temp never exeed 63 celcius and always at 61 , so do you think i can overclock more aroung 5.0 ghz or like that enough for my cooler (coolmaster hyper 212 plus ) ?
