Newbie - Need help overclocking.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an i72600k processor, Asus P8P67-M motherboard, 8GB DDR3 1600MHz of Ram, and I'm completely clueless about overclocking. I read some overclocking guides and tried overclocking it but when I run a stress test on my PC, I get a blue screen or random shutdown. The thing is, in my bios setting I can't find where I can adjust the CPU voltage. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

To begin with you have to set the AI tweater to Manual, otherwise you won't have access to OCing options

On your board you adjust the voltage with "offset voltage" it can be done this way.

Raise your multi to 45 and then raise voltage with offset and you should be good to go

Here is a list of bsod codes which should help you determine why it is happening

0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore... H67/P67 increase/decrease Vcore first then qpi/vtt second.
on i7 45nm, usually means too little VVT/QPI for the speed of Uncore
on i7 32nm SB, usually means too little vCore
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r

What exactly is voltage offset and by how much should I increase it (range is from .005v - .635v)? Would increasing it increase/decrease my CPU voltage?

Just use small increasements, start raising the multi one by one untill you hit your limit on stock voltage then bump the offset a touch each time and keep going untill either no further rise in voiltage will get your system stable or your cpu temps are too high.

Offset is your vcore + offset voltage. it adds it on top. do not go abouve 1.45v for a 24/7 overclock

My temperatures don't rise above 52 when I do online gaming with that current setting. Only thing I'm curious about is when I do a CPU stress test then I get an error(I use Prime95 for the CPU stress test). My Core Voltage is 1.400v, I've seen people overclock to 4.5GHz on 1.25v and from what I heard, cooler is better. Lol

And would it be possible to give me some tips on how to overclock my graphic card?

You should be able to get 4.5ghz on alot less voltage say around 1.3 - 1.35 maybe less. ive seen 1.375 for 4.5ghz aswell, But your getting there

Download "msi afterburner" for your graphics card, be easy with your graphics card the headroom for overclock is not the same as your cpu, once again take it slow read reviews, tutorials etc and take it easy.

you need to download prime 95 to stress the cpu, gaming will not do it, also download real temp to check temps

Ok I managed to get the core temp down to 1.325v. I'm trying to aim just a bit lower. Lol thanks man I'll try it out.
