Can you add me to the club as well

I just built my system and haven't tried any overclocking yet, but soon... I have learned a whole lot reading this thread already, and I'm sure I have a whole lot more to learn. I've been using :cough: MacPro :cough: for a long time, so it will be a big change going back to windows lol. I have no plans to get rid of my Apple though, just wanted a real gaming computer.

Connect it to one of the two white (or "gray") ports that are right next to the navy blue ports. Avoid the navy blue ports because they are controlled by the Marvell controller. The gray and light blue ports are controlled by the Intel chipset which is far better.

The white (or "gray") ports are SATA 3 (6 Gb/sec), and the light blue ports are SATA 2 (3 Gb/sec).

I recommend first setting the Load-Line Calibration to Ultra High in order to make it as easy as possible to calculate it. After that, go into Windows and open Core Temp. If it's displaying a VID that is like 1.3511V or something, then it's showing you a useful number. If it's showing a very low VID of like less than 1.1V, then you must put load on the CPU by running something that doesn't stop (like Prime95). Some people have to put load on their CPU in order to get Core Temp to display their VID.

Once you get Core Temp to show you your actual VID, make a mental note of it (or just write it down, or put it in Notepad). If it fluctuates at all, remember all of the VIDs you see. For example: mine fluctuates between 1.3511V and 1.3611V. Therefore, if I want about 1.400V, then I must use an Offset of +0.040V because 0.040 + 1.3611 = 1.4011. If I wanted a voltage lower than 1.3511V, then I would use a Minus Offset like -0.020V which would result in 1.3311V to 1.3411. Now, the actual voltages that get displayed by CPU-Z will be slightly different and they will also only have 3 decimal places, but still: this is how to do it.

This is actually quite easy, and I think you will agree with me once you begin doing it.
Now i'm confused. cpu-z is showing core voltage at 1.328v and coretemp is showing vid at 1.3711v... Is this suppose to be the same? my offset value is -0.035 at 4.5ghz? which one should i use?

Please use Print Screen to take screenshots.

Core Temp is showing the VID, not the current voltage.

Funny enough I don't get BSODs, only workers that shutdown because of hardware faults.

I am on 0606 bios and heard about a later beta bios that is more compatible. The only problem is that all the links to that bios seems to be broken!
i got 2 things to say about this:

1) usualy when running 4 sticks of ram you need to bump the ram and vicco voltage...upping the vicco didnt help much and upping the ram "could" fix the prob but its not recommened cause you've reached the official limites....


2) you may have a faulty stick, so id advise to test your ram by pairs.. youll need to run memtest for about 6hours on each pair..if the app gives you errors, email corsair saying memtest is giving you errors,they ll rma without questioning.

So I'm doing a new build soon and I cant decide between the P8P67 Deluxe and the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe which is the best for Overclocking an i7-2600K on air to 4GHz and what ram to pair with it.

TBH overclocking a 2600k or 2500k isn't hard at all.... i can even press a button in the bios and it auto clocks to 4.3 GHz without doing anything.

I would go with Corsair Vengeance ram they are pretty good... what cooler are you getting because some will block your ram slots and then you will need to get LP ram (Low Profile) (only difference is the heatspreaders on top)

Undecided on the cooler as well what would provide the best low temps?

That depends what you want a Tower cooler or a liquid cooling solution.
Best tower coolers are Noctua NH-D14 and Silver arrow.
As for liquid cooling you can buy Corsairs liquid cooling solution H80 or something more advanced XSPC rasa kit
