It's normal for DDR(double data rate) memory.

This is why i'm trying to OC my RAM to 1866MHz, but since i haven't come close to being stable ive given up on that temporarily.

Sending a few pics of my first build.

After a lot of fussing with the OC and disabling HT, it's stable at 47 x 100.0 with Offset +0.025. Vcore averages 1.392 and temps 68-70c at 100% load. I used multiple runs of Prime95 15-minute Blends at 1792 and 1333 with max DRAM, and also 10 runs of IBT at "Maximum" -- all with no errors. This is enough for me unless I start to see some instability.

I've run RailWorks2 (very cpu dependent) for hours @1920x1080 with all settings maxed and the system doesn't even breathe hard. Frames are off the chart. Temps stay around 40-43c. GPU never goes above 60c. My next tests will be with FSX once I finish hours reinstalling everything.

Of course I'm open to suggestions about other things to try. The few changes I made from TwoCables' template are in red.

1. Cpu manual voltage @ 1.200v

Thanks
I would bump it to 4.5gHz with Hyper Threading enabled. Should be fairly easy to get it to there. I am pretty happy with my 4.5ghz OC, very fast and rock solid stable with decent temps too.

Wouldn't a slightly lower clock of 4.5gHz with Hyper Threading enabled give you better performance? I dunno if I'm being bias or what, but I can multi task all day with 4 cores and 4 virtual running at 4.5. It took 5 minutes to set the uefi bios and tested solid. Seems like you would notice a better performance boost that way since the whole point of a 2600k is for HT. Otherwise you could have saved 100 bucks and just got a 2500k and run that at 4.7 with a sacrifice of smaller cache. Point being that, your .2gHz increase comes at a cost of disabling the coolest feature your cpu offers.

Just my two cents. You do have a very cool setup by the way, very clean and orderly. But I'd suggest you enabling HT and lowering your multi a few notches. I guarantee you that my rig at 4.5 with HT would out perform another at 4.7 without it. I tried it either or and I definitely gotta say Hyper threading is the SH**.

Yeh I tried that last night, this overclocking stuff is addictive

I just set the mult to 45 and observed what the bios did with voltage - at load it was at 1.304 - 1.320 (not bad I think) but after 40 mins of prime95 my temps were at 62/65/65/64 which are a little too hot for my liking. (btw can't enable ht as i have an i5)

Every morning when I switch on my PC, I get that annoying CPU fan error. I noticed in windows my cpu fan idles at 450rpm, should I set it to 400 low limit in bios?

Would disabling the cpu fan thing have any negative effects on my computer?

Isn't the fan spinning at full rpm if Q-Fan is switched off?

Setting Low Limit should have no negative effects, just monitor temps after first boot in idle and under load.

I prefer to set a custom temp-rpm-curve in AI Suite
