I thought I had it stable at x48 with +0.065--passed prime95 1344 and 1792 FFTs @ 90% available memory with a vcore around 1.42--but she died about 6 hours into a full blend test.

I gonna try going to +0.070 but thats probably going to push my voltage and temperatures higher than I'd like for folding. I think I read in one of your posts that ~1.425v is the limit recommended for 24/7 @ 100% load?

Thanx!

I have spent countless hours testing with Prime over multiple platforms, taking notes and discovering what tests effect what ever.

I know it takes a minimum of 10 hours to complete all available test Prime Blend has to offer.

The 160K test at 6 hours 14 minutes is very stressful and makes the most heat during the 10 hour loop of Prime blend. It seems useful for setting both total Vcore and also seems to be Ram voltage sensitive requiring more Vdimm to pass consistently for me anyway.

So there are three issues you need to deal with here heat not being the least of your concern.

It's important to note the failed test in Prime so you can come back to it and not waste a bunch of time but I'm almost certain this is the test you failed. Keep in mind you can choose the test from Prime to begin testing by selecting "Custom" and you can loop the test as well by as many times as you choose. I'd start with 4 loops as indicated below.

settingupcustomtestPrimeblend.png

Your are on the right track bumping vcore but if you do plug in the 160k where you see 320k above and if the test fails try bumping vdimm and test again paying particular attention to your temps. If you have a temp gun watch your digi+ vrm/s

It may also be useful to enable Spread Spectrum. Keep in mind the memory controller is on die (proc) making the power it gets critical. Through my testing with this platform on the Asus board it seems the fellas who have written the bios paid particular attention to this parameter in the overclocked state and may well be a compliment/aid. Similarly MSI (I also have a Z68A-GD80 to play with) has there on implementation (intel SVID vs APS) where they have spent time shoring up the interface, you can choose the Intel spec or there own which seems to do better with higher clocks, so me thinks it's no coincidence.

GL and report back

I have posted up a spread sheet for this platform for anyone here who wants to use it to share bios settings. All I ask is that you only post settings that work but it is my hope it becomes a repository we all can use. I made a few entries so far and intend to add more soon and would like to see you all take advantage of it.
It is editable by all who have a link so Check it out >>> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApAbOXdu3nL3dEJ6U2hQd3RfNVRRMmxkbVFHSG5WdGc&hl=en_US#gid=0

edit I should note in addition to the settings listed in the spread sheet I make the following changed to optimized defaults to avoid certain peculiarities of the bios such as dbl post over 100Blck, disappearing hard drive, and slow boots.
  • Full screen (post) disabled
  • APM: PCIE enabled
  • J-Micron: Disabled
  • Marvel: Disabled
  • Setup Mode: Advanced
  • Raid mode + 1st boot device set & 2nd disabled
  • Opt. ROM: Keep Current (set boot drive & F10 first before you set this)
  • QFan: disable both CPU & Case

I'm currently running 4.5ghz at 1.35v (1.325 under load) through 1.5hrs of linx (without AVX) but 4.8Ghz did not seem to want to stabilise at any reasonable voltage I tried.

Can anyone tell me if upgrading from the 0501 bios to the 0706 would help overclocking in any way or are there just minor bug fixes?
I don't know in regards to the BIOS version, but I do know one thing that I have learned during my time in this thread: Linpack is actually a waste of time, including Linpack with AVX (when I say "Linpack", I'm referring to both IntelBurnTest and LinX). The recommended test is Prime95's Blend test, or you can choose the Custom test to maximize the amount of memory it uses. So it would still be Blend, but with a custom amount of memory.

However, what are all of your UEFI settings right now?

I'm sorry for the confusion. Looking back at my post, I think I was referring to when you used a multiplier of 46. It looks like I was distracted or something because I wasn't very clear about it.

So according to CPU-Z, are you getting 1.424V under full load using an Offset of +0.065V?

You're welcome!

Regarding 1.425V: that's just what Juan Jose at ASUS ("JJ") says. He's their Senior Technical Marketing Director, but I don't know if he's just being conservative, or if he's speaking from experience, or if he's repeating something Intel told him. Either way, I guess I'm taking his word for it.

Here is a handy template anyone can use to copy/paste when asking for overclocking help. Make changes to it reflecting your specs and help will be more relevant to your situation.

All you have to do to use it is quote this post then copy the template removing that which is not relevant when asking for help.

It is a copy of the Asus UEFI Ai Tweaker & Advanced pages found in all P67 H67 & Z68 UEFI bios pages. It was first used here at post #2441 but thanks goes to Asus for creating such a great bios.

That's mine.

Although, I personally don't consider it a template. I think of it more as just a starting point of sorts.

Hay Lord's and Ladies I'm new here and ineed of some help on the subject of overclocking.... I don't know what to do, at all. I've looked at a fair few videis but they're sketchy at most.
After going through quite a few posts and not being able to find any tutorials on the matter I've decided to ask instead.
Could you please tell me on the best way to go about overclocking my soon to be recieved P8Z68 v pro motherboard and i5 2500k?
I only have one 4GB stick of vengeance blue. Should i get another stick too? I really didn't mean to rhyme that.
I would really appreciate any of your help even if it's only one post.
Thanks a million Adam.

Although, I personally don't consider it a template. I think of it more as just a starting point of sorts.

It has the pertinent setting to OC I thought about adding Advanced\ APM> If it's yours I hope you don't mind us using it, these templates are invaluable for discussion.

edit I found it post #2441 TY
Hey would you mind filling out/sharing your settings at the spread sheet I created

I know it takes a minimum of 10 hours to complete all available test Prime Blend has to offer.

The 160K test at 6 hours 14 minutes is very stressful and makes the most heat during the 10 hour loop of Prime blend. It seems useful for setting both total Vcore and also seems to be Ram voltage sensitive requiring more Vdimm to pass consistently for me anyway.

So there are three issues you need to deal with here heat not being the least of your concern.

It's important to note the failed test in Prime so you can come back to it and not waste a bunch of time but I'm almost certain this is the test you failed. Keep in mind you can choose the test from Prime to begin testing by selecting "Custom" and you can loop the test as well by as many times as you choose. I'd start with 4 loops as indicated below.

settingupcustomtestPrimeblend.png

Your are on the right track bumping vcore but if you do plug in the 160k where you see 320k above and if the test fails try bumping vdimm and test again paying particular attention to your temps. If you have a temp gun watch your digi+ vrm/s

It may also be useful to enable Spread Spectrum. Keep in mind the memory controller is on die (proc) making the power it gets critical. Through my testing with this platform on the Asus board it seems the fellas who have written the bios paid particular attention to this parameter in the overclocked state and may well be a compliment/aid. Similarly MSI (I also have a Z68A-GD80 to play with) has there on implementation (intel SVID vs APS) where they have spent time shoring up the interface, you can choose the Intel spec or there own which seems to do better with higher clocks, so me thinks it's no coincidence.

GL and report back

I have posted up a spread sheet for this platform for anyone here who wants to use it to share bios settings. All I ask is that you only post settings that work but it is my hope it becomes a repository we all can use. I made a few entries so far and intend to add more soon and would like to see you all take advantage of it.
It is editable by all who have a link so Check it out >>> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApAbOXdu3nL3dEJ6U2hQd3RfNVRRMmxkbVFHSG5WdGc&hl=en_US#gid=0

edit I should note in addition to the settings listed in the spread sheet I make the following changed to optimized defaults to avoid certain peculiarities of the bios such as dbl post over 100Blck, disappearing hard drive, and slow boots.
  • Full screen (post) disabled
  • APM: PCIE enabled
  • J-Micron: Disabled
  • Marvel: Disabled
  • Setup Mode: Advanced
  • Raid mode + 1st boot device set & 2nd disabled
  • Opt. ROM: Keep Current (set boot drive & F10 first before you set this)
  • QFan: disable both CPU & Case

Thanks for all the great feedback. There is so much to overclocking that I have yet to comprehend confused.gif. I didn't think to note the FFT that caused the failure but will from now on.

I gave up on the x48 OC after it failed another blend test @ +0.070. I've reduced the multiplier to 47 and have made several runs with that. At +0.025, it passed FFT's 1344 and 1792 but just died during 720k. The other interesting thing is that I'm starting to think I have a 'weak' core. I consistenly see prime95 fail on logical core 1 or 2. I'll try your FFT recommendations with a higher offset and let you know.

And since you recommended it, what does spread spectrum do? And when you say 'vdimm', are you referring to the memory voltage? I have mine manually set to 1.5v because I'm running 8GB of Corsair Vengence.

It's in Post #2 of this thread, so of course I don't mind. wink.gif All I ask is that you make sure no one ends up thinking that it's your creation.

Regarding the inclusion of APM: the reason why I didn't include it is because I am keeping it as specific to overclocking as possible.

I'm sorry for the confusion. Looking back at my post, I think I was referring to when you used a multiplier of 46. It looks like I was distracted or something because I wasn't very clear about it.

No problem--I'm getting old and am easily confused at times biggrin.gif.

So according to CPU-Z, are you getting 1.424V under full load using an Offset of +0.065V?

It was averaging 1.424, bouncing between 1.416 and 1.432 with VID between 1.3661 and 1.3711. HWMonitor reported a max 1.44v.

Thanx!

You're welcome!

In the end, my attempt at x48 @ 0.070 also failed during a blend run after passing 1344 and 1792. I've reduce the multiplier to 47 and am currently testing that at +0.030. As I mentioned to owcraftsman, I think I have a weak core. Prime95 almost always fails on virtual cpu 1 or 2.

On the other hand, my sig rig is much less voltage-hungry. I don't want to jinx myself but it looks to be happy with x48 @ +0.20--go figure. headscratch.gif

Regarding 1.425V: that's just what Juan Jose at ASUS ("JJ") says. He's their Senior Technical Marketing Director, but I don't know if he's just being conservative, or if he's speaking from experience, or if he's repeating something Intel told him. Either way, I guess I'm taking his word for it.

If nothing else, we have to assume that he wouldn't want to fry all of his customers' CPU's wink.gif
