I guys, i really need some help.
I've just bought this MB and i've put on it my 2500K.

I've not done any OC yet...the problem is that, in Idle...CPU speed goes at 1.6Ghz @ 1.000V as it is supposed to do...but when the 3.7Ghz turbo boost kicks in, instead of the normal 1.180V i get 1.320V...which is extremely high for default frequency, and i cannot find a way to lower it to an appropriate level frown.gif.

I tought it was a CPU-Z's reading error...but it isn't since even ASUS Probe is giving me the same readings.

I tried then to put a negative offset to get the turbo boost vcore down to 1.18...and it works...but now i have 0.860V while idle.

What should i do?
It's all on automatic and all of the overclocking features in the BIOS are Disabled, including Load-Line calibration, which is 0%, phase control, which is Standard...and so on.
Speedstep of course is enabled...

Please help me frown.gif

The change in thermal output between 4.6 and 5.0 is pretty significant in my experience on the 2500K. I would recommend liquid at that point. There is no real point to go past your current clock unless you are benchmarking.

1.32V is nothing. You won't have any issues. Feel free to tune it lower or higher, but it won't cause any issues that I know of if its left at that setting.

Our boards have connection spots for 2 cpu fans and 3 casefans.
My new HAF 922 is going to have 9 fans.
7 of them are casefans.

2 @ Front (200mm + 120 mm)
2 @ Top (2x 120mm)
1 @ exhaust (120mm)
1 @ bottom (120mm)
1 @ side (200mm)

The 120 mm are CM Sickleflow 2000rpm.

I never had so much fans before and my question is:



Do i have to split the MB connections uppon 2 fans?
Should i just connect the sickleflows to the MB and the others to my PSU?

Motherboard fan headers are normally rated 1A or 12W. Without knowing the exact fans peak power draw, I would probably use one header with one fan. Just to be safe.

No, nothing else. At first I did change all the power settings but running in performance mode in windows overides it anyway. So I changed all settings back to stock except those few.

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.

I have read a lot of guides from different forums and they range from a couple steps to over 10 steps. I tried messing with the settings may times so I finally tried just one at a time to see what happens. I'm sure the X.M.P. profiles are fine for these processors these days and I will most likely try it .
