I didn't really expect lower temps.

Then please post a screenshot of Real Temp 3.67 to show your VID.

You will probably have to put some load on the CPU in order to get it to show your actual VID.
Sorry about the huge, hopefully itll resize properly:


If it doesnt, RealTemp VID is 1.3961 and CPUZ is showing a vCore of 1.320 (which is as high as it went), so I guess its working. Temps are the same with or without hyperthreading oddly enough. I was really hoping for lower temps, as this is about (voltage and temp wise) what I was getting with auto settings (although I also had hyperthreading enabled when I was using auto).

I guess Im just used to my E8400 which at 3.6Ghz on air cooling only hit 50c.

I got a little ballsy and dropped the offset down to -0.100 and the temps are slightly lower (69c), but I only did 5 passes.

I thought lower voltage meant lower temperatures?

EDIT: I just want to add, thank you so much TwoCables for your help. Even if Im not seeing a temperature reduction, I know the lower voltages are prolonging the life of my CPU and I couldnt have done it without you.

If you had the E8400 at 4.0 GHz, then you would have seen close to 70°C running IBT. However, 70°C is still very safe.

You only reduced the voltage by a tiny bit. So I think a 2 degree drop is to be expected for this small of a voltage reduction.

Here is my template for a safe cool and quiet i7 2600K 4,5GHz OC with HT enabled.

The system has ran Prime95 for more than 24hours with success.
The hottest core temp remains below 68°C (RealTemp).
Room temp approx 20°C.
VCore : approx 1.272V. (CPU-Z)

However TwoCables's template doesn't work for me even @4.5GHz; the system hangs at win7 boot time. I don't understand why !

Hello everyone! I'm a new P8Z68 board owner (the plain -V model). Received it Monday night and got it up and running just fine. Still stock while I get software loaded, add my second drive, etc. Here's a link to my build log thread:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-build...8-v-2500k.html

Now, the problem. Well, 2.

1. That stupid AI Suite package won't install. I only wanted it for the bios updater, but it won't install. I tried the "patcher" but even after, the AI Suite still won't install. I'll live without and just used a USB key for my BIOS update.

2. And this is the bigger problem...One of the pins on the USB 3.0 header was bent. Or at least, it is now. I have to admit when I was plugging everything in, I did not examine the pins on the USB 3 header, just plugged the cable in (my Corsair 400r does have 2xUSB3 front panel ports). Well, when I went to insert a USB key to copy the bios rom onto, one of them did not recognize anything. The other worked fine.

I used the USB3 to USB2 adapter to plug into one of the USB2 headers and both ports worked fine. So that's when I took a look (had to grab a flashlight!) and sure enough, bent pin.

I didn't have any needle nose pliers at home last night...at least that I could find. But I'll borrow a pair from work and try to straighten it tonight. I'm kinda sorta tempted to go ahead and RMA it (newegg) but on the other hand....if it will straighten and not snap off, then that is obviously easier.

Everything else has been great. I haven't OC'd yet, but updated bios, drivers, etc. and benchmarked my M4 SSD. I have a CM Hyper 212+ and in an ambient temp of 25c, my cores are idling at 32-33c (reported by Core Temp).

Anyway, I'll be hanging out here to figure out how to OC as I've never done it before. Probably a pretty mild/moderate OC as compared to some, but we'll see!

Ai Suite II isn't really worth it, but here's how to get it to install (it's counter-intuitive)
  1. Run the patcher first
  2. Reboot (at least, I think you have to reboot afterward)
  3. Attempt to install Ai Suite II

Well, I'm no expert with tools, but hopefully I'll be able to straighten it. I really don't want to have to send the board back to newegg and wait for them to process it and send me another. As long as the pin doesn't break when I try, I guess I should be OK.

I have a external WD hard drive plug in and it takes forever to boot up. I've notice when I detect it the the mother board boots up much faster and doesnt have that 10 sec bios screen. is there any way to fix this?

thanks.

So I've been living with a 4.5 Ghz OC with PLL Overvoltage turned on, something which I've dealt with, but the cold boot issues I've been having as well as the inability to go into sleep mode have brought me to the end of my rope. Using the basic OC options laid out here, I am unable to achieve anything over the mid 4.3Ghz range (can't hit anything over a x43 multiplier on each core with 100.0 BCLK), no matter what any of the other settings in the digi+vrm menu or any of the offsets are (using turbo, not a constant OC) with PLL overvoltage off. Basically, anything over that, I can't get past the windows animation to my login screen. Do I have a crappy chip or am I just missing something?

I've currently switched back to all defaults (pretty much everything auto except the BLCK at 100.0 and Core at x43, as well as a VRM freq. of 350) and have a rock solid 4.3Ghz.
