Hmm...I just noticed last night that my base clock is also set to 103 and even though I try to change it I couldn't. And, AI Suite wouldn't install for me, so it's not AI Suite doing it.

Hey guys, I recently built a PC with the P8Z68-V PRO and am having a problem with what appears to be the on-board sound. There is this faint static/high pitched beeping sound coming from my speakers at all times and is independent of any volume settings - it is present even when all sound is muted. It is not that loud, but it is enough to be really annoying. I originally suspected the speakers; however, the annoying sound is not present when I plug them into my laptop or my friends PC.

I tried installing the latest Realtek drivers but it made no difference. I tried all the audio jacks and muted all inputs/outputs in soundcard management with no success.

I then suspected a grounding loop and connected my PC to various mains in my apartment and at a friends place, but the sound was still there. I then figured I would take apart everything and assemble it outside my case one piece at a time, testing the speakers along the way. This proved useless as my minimal system with only the PSU, CPU, ram, boot drive, and stock fan (I swapped out my hyper 212+ to rule it out as well) still caused the background noise through my speakers. I also tried an alternate PSU on this minimal system with no success.

An interesting note is that when my cpu load is high, the noise goes away. For example, when I run prime95, the noise goes away completely and my speakers function normally. Also, if I change a setting in Realtek HD audio manager, the sound goes away while it reloads devices (normal sound/music is still audible during the reloading of devices phase so its not just a general mute of all sound).

The next thing I am going to try before I resort to getting a separate soundcard or something is to maybe change the CPU throttling settings. What do you think about this idea? considering that the sound seems to be present during idle, I could eliminate any power saving functions. My idle core voltage is ~0.9V atm which seems kind of low right?

What about flashing the new 0606 BIOS? I am currently using 0501. I didn't do this right away as I didn't want to risk being stuck with a BIOS error and not being able to go back to 0501.

And just to make my post even longer... I noticed something strange in the BIOS. One of my CHA_FAN monitors seems to be bugging out. It will randomly flash to max speed 19640RPM for a second then go back to its normal ~1015RPM. The fan is functioning normally on physical inspection though. I'm not to worried about this error though as it is inconsequential; the speaker static sound is about as annoying as it gets in terms of problems though.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

PS. This is all on stock speeds, I haven't started overclocking anything yet.

set up for 4.6 so far a good and stable oc












sorry their not in the correct order. one day i will work how to do it

test results with intelburn test etc:





so far with messing around with these adjustments i have not had any bsod,no double boots,no cold start up errors etc ai is still installed but i have not touch it at all.i have gone from 4.5 yesterday to 4.6 today and all test came back ok.just core 3 was a bit hot @73.
so am going to run @4.6 for a few days now and then pump it up 4.7/4.8 may be.
oh by the way windows boot to windows 9.8 sec's

Thought I'd just say I just built my first build a week ago and this forum was just great for helping me with a couple problems I was having with my MOBO. So I thought I'd join! Next step is to try and OC a little!

I recommend the following changes:
  • Duty Control to Extreme
  • CPU Current Capability to 140%. There's nothing harmful when using this setting because you are receiving help from others.
  • CPU Manual Voltage: please use a manual voltage and not "Auto". Try to avoid "Auto" core voltages!

That voltage of 1.384V is exactly why a core voltage of Auto should not be used. This overclock absolutely does not need that much. It's not a dangerous voltage, but it's certainly overkill. This is how overkill it is: my CPU needs 1.384V at minimum to achieve stability 4.8 GHz!


Anyway, there's one more thing that I haven't told you yet and I apologize for it: Intel Burn Test is a giant waste of time. To make matters worse, 5 runs is not a test; it's just a really quick check on stability while you are in the middle of tweaking your overclock; it is never a final test.

Furthermore, I highly recommend Real Temp 3.67 which has been specifically designed for Sandy Bridge:

http://www.overclockers.com/forums/s...d.php?t=667250

Finally, if you absolutely insist on using Intel Burn Test, then you have to use this one to get any kind of effectiveness:

http://gigaflopd.com/downloads/ibt/

Although, it requires Windows 7 with SP1. However, Prime95 does not require SP1 and it's more effective than IBT.


Anyway, please make all of those changes I listed above and let's see what happens. For the core voltage, we need to start somewhere, so let's try getting CPU-Z to show 1.336V under full load.

Just wondering was looking at the P8Z68-v pro and the P8P67 pro. I don't think that ill be using the 2 main feature of the z68 will I regret going with the P67. How well does it OC a 2500k, trying to cut down cost or the wife wont let me buy even tho my rig is dead.

A bit Off topic but do I need 8gigs of ram or will I be good with just 4, I know with my rig never saw the need to have more than 4.

Thx

You will be more than fine with the p67 and 4gb of ram is good too. People just have 8 or so b/c it is cheap now.

HI TWOCABLES
ok so how or what voltage do i need to start off with to get cpu-z to show 1.336v or do i just key in 1.336v in the manual core voltage box then save & exit?

The P8P67 Pro is the most-recommended board for Sandy Bridge overclocking. How well it overclocks the 2500K will depend on the 2500K, but it is a very, very, very good board.

4 GB is perfect right now.

The only reason why I have 8 GB is because I saw Crysis 2's recommended system requirements being 8 GB of memory, but I've never seen my total memory usage exceed like 2.5 GB or so.

In other words, I could have easily gotten away with 4 GB and still had more than enough for Crysis 2 (that is, with it maxed out using DX11 and the High Res Textures).

Hey!

I don't know. All you have to do is try voltages that are slightly higher. You'll nail it after 3-4 tries. All you have to do is select a voltage, boot into Windows, open CPU-Z and Prime95 and then start Prime95. Each time you'll be able to see the full-load voltage and then you'll see whether or not you nailed it on that try.

It is easier than I am making it sound.
