I transferred this over to here because I finally realized I had hijacked ocococ's thread.

I assume you have made sure you're mem are stable before pushing your CPU?
To be honest, I've never learned how to properly make sure memory is stable. However, I haven't had one single problem yet - not even a tiny thing.

Offset is pretty simple. The Offset you type in, is the Volts you add to the CPU's VID. However, the CPU's VID will increase with speed. So you gotta try it. Type in + 0.010 and boot Windows, see what you get under load, and work from there. If you need more, then type in more

Also, when using Offset, it could be a good idea to disable C3/C6 to avoid Idle BSOD's

btw: What I don't understand, is why I had to get one of the worst 2500K's in the whole wide world...

Well I think I'm in your club as one of my cores failed after 4 hours on blend overnight. And the real worrying thing was that I had an alert from AI suite that my motherboard temp was 121C!

As I'm on my way to work I'll have to check the rig later though I'm begining to think I should wind down the overclock in search of a stable 4.5 and low volts

I tried to OC and this showed when PC restarted

I think I've found my stable voltage that I tested yesterday using an offset of -0.030 (CPU-Z is showing 1.336V during prime testing, same as my 12 hour run). Also switched CPU PLL voltage to 1.7V

Aiming for 6 hours on this test. Hope it works out, I'd really like to start using this computer

I would say theres not too much difference.

(Taken from first page on this thread)


Its just down to whether or not you see yourself using some of the features the pro has over the base board.

Hello, and Welcome Will add you in a moment. The PRO is just a little bit more expensive than the Vanilla. And the PRO supports SLI/Crossfire in x8 + x8, Vanilla supports only Crossfire in a crippled mode - x16 + x4. And if using that x4 slot, I think it will disable the USB 3.0 controller? Anyone?

Also, the PRO has a couple of other minor features. But If you are certain you will never use more than one GPU, then the Vanilla does the same job. Very nice board.

I also get those crazy alerts now and then. I've also seen some crazy values. If I remember correctly motherboard temp also showed a crazy value for me. Nothing to worry about. This is obviously buggy software. Use other monitoring software like HWiNFO or AIDA 64 Extreme. HWINFO is free Software though, and monitors everything.

If one of the cores are failing, and you do not get a BSOD, it could just as well be RAM problems. I always get a BSOD and a reboot If I have too little Vcore for CPU. Try setting your RAM to manual stock timings, also try and set Command Rate to 2t instead of AUTO. Additionally, you could try and set the mem to 1333 while finding your max CPU overclock.

I read on OCN that its software related. I mean at that temp all night i would have smelt something when near it and it seemed like it was running fine. I use HWMonitor as well as CPU-Z and RealTemp and nothing on those gave me any worry.

The temps were lower overnight too.. the previous temps i posted were high because i forgot (left) a box ontop of the case so there was no clear air flow out of the case

The Ram is currently set to Auto and only the CAS timing placed in. Its always the same core too that goes. The rest run fine throughout. The funny thing is when i did my 5 hour blend test earlier yesterday it went through fine.

I may just increase the vCore once more but to have 1.37v for a 4.6Ghz is poor

Dammit was considering crossfiring my 5770, but if it'll turn out naff, i'll just upgrade the card.

It's always smart to do a little research before buying a product. I've seen other people in here also unhappy over the Vanilla, because they had planned on going SLI.

There is a reason the PRO is as popular - It has all the important features of it's bigger brothers, and at a nice price.

The same can not be said for the Vanilla P8Z68-V. It has the most important features when compared to the P8Z68-V PRO. In the P8Z68-V, they have instead removed the Marvell Sata controller and the Firewire port, otherwise it has all the important features.
