Issues overclocking with 2600K

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just recently upgraded the computers in the house and I am having an issues overclocking one of them. In all honesty, I am no expert on overclocking and have tried to research this issue on my own, but have had no luck. So I have decided to come here since you guys are certainly the experts.

Here is rundown of my system hardware.

Cooler Master 650W PSU
ATI Radeon 6950 w/ flashed firmware to a 6970
Core i7 2600K
MSI P67A-C43 motherboard
Cooler Master Hyper N 520 cpu heatsink/fan
Antec 900 case
G.Skill Sniper 2x 4GB DDR3 1600
G.Skill Ripjaws 2x 4GB DDR3 1600

Everytime I overclock the system becomes highly unstable and either locks up, powers off, or fails to POST. I did do a memtest and it was ok. Perhaps the motherboard I purchased is inadequate? If there is one you recommend sub $200 I am interested in hearing.

Anyways, I have attached pictures of the BIOS options and maybe you guys can give me an idea as what settings should be adjusted to improve system stability while overclocked. I really do appreciate the help and any feedback you can provide regarding my issue!

I was having lock up problems with my 2500k, Im not sure but I think manually setting ram to its stock settings instead of auto solved that. I never go around messing with the ram before. I rig has not crashed for a few days so I think its good.

yeah, if my system wont post, it is usually because my cpu is way undervolted or bad memory settings. try manually setting your mem timings and setting the voltage to 1.5 or whatever the stickers on your memory call for.

well according to your ss it is running at 1.472v

try bumping it up to 1.5 or if your memory calls for higher voltage, set it to whatever g.skill specs call for.

there are little stickers on your ram which have all the info for timings and voltage

if your system fails to post what are you doing to get it to post again? clear cmos?

when you do this and run with default settings your system appears stable?

Have not had a chance to mess with voltage yet cause of work, but I am able to clear the CMOS to post again, and yes it seems stable.
