Hey Guys!

I'm new to this fourm and quite amateur. Thankfully there are people like yourselves that have done most of the work for me and who I can learn from. I recently upgraded to the 2500k and P8P67 Pro 3.1. I've read through these fourms (not the entire 500 pages) and checked some guides as well. Currently i've overclocked the chip to 4.5GHz and it seems stable enough, ran Prime overnight and no errors but did get a BSOD a few days ago while watching Skyrim... (might have been related to not reinstalling Afterburner though and my Gfx card probably overheated) Haven't had one for a few days. I have a couple of questions with my settings though, not sure if I should leave them be or tweak them as mine seem basic compared to other peoples.

So here are my settings, basically everything is set to default except:

Ai Overclock Tuner -XMP
BCLK/PEG Frequency - 100
By All Cores (Can Adjust In OS) - 45
CPU Voltage - Manual Mode
CPU Manual Voltage - 1.25v
DRAM Voltage - 1.5v
PLL - Disabled

Load Line - Auto
Phase Control - Standard
Duty Control - T Probe

From reading these fourms i'm wondering if I should make the following changes:

CPU Voltage - Offset
Offset - +0.020
Load Line - Ultra High
Phase Control - Extreme
Duty Control - Extreme

Currently my temps when running Prime 95 go up to about 67-71 Degrees.


If you are 12 hrs Prime stable using max memory then I 'd say leave it be. It would be very important to isolate what caused your BSOD at this point before you proceed. The higher settings you suggest are a good place to start but I would add settting VRM Freq to 300-350 too, Understand the higher LLC, Phase and Duty controls will increase certain voltages which in turn increases heat and may not be necessary below 4.6. In there lies the rub generally when overclocking it's best to manually set when possible vs leaving auto especially voltages which tend to overvolted to serve the masses. For example it's known that Asus bios will overvolt VCCIO to 1.8v and many at or below 4.6 get away with 1.5 to 1.6v. Use search there are several post on this issue in these forums. Bottom line Asus makes it easy for most folks to OC easily but that doesn't translate to best practices in all cases. Auto settings tend to be higher than actually need if you have a good chip and it would appear you do, 1.25 vcore for a stable 4.6 OC is pretty good there are many who require more for the same. It's also important to understand what works for one may not work for all meaning every system is different. Now that you are on the OC bandwagon take a heavy dose of patients and learn what works best for your config. By all means experiment and in the end you will be rewarded with a highly efficient top performing rig.

I think they should have left well enough alone and kept it SSD Caching. How much easier is that? But NO!!! Intel has to have a long, fancy "technology" type name to make it look impressive, so they threw both the SRT & IRST in the mix to confuse everyone (not that I'm not already confused enough......) So, with my humble apologies I accept defeat and will now call it that thing that speeds up my hard drive....TTTSUMHD biggrin.gif
On a lighter note I want my machine to boot in 7.55 seconds also. I thought I was doing fairly well with the "Thing that speeds up my hard drive_TTTSUMHD at 20 seconds (and that's just a cache...) That is quick!
Edit.... mobo manual?? What is that? I thought it was fire place kindling....rolleyes.gif

ISRT was never dropped. ISRT is even newer than IRST.

Also, I want to ask a simple favor from you. Please refrain from double posting. Use the mutli-quote feature of this thred thumb.gif

Wow, that is fast. What program do you use to measure bootup time? And did you tweak your system like disable startup program and such in order to have this kind of fast bootup? I have the Crucial M4 128GB and cannot boot this fast.

Perfectly okay. All I can say is it works! thumb.gif However my complains are; since it was really made for a 20-30gb SSD, why are these drives just as expensive as their bigger brothers? Intel says it's a waste to use an SSD over 64gb (as that's what the software limits are anyway). The idea was to have a "cheap" way of speeding up your hard drive saves & loads for a reasonable price. They should sell a 20gb SSD for $40-$50 bucks and then it would be. But none does that. For the price of a bit under one hundred you can get a 60 or 64gb SSD. That's not keeping the cost down.

But that's not a bad complaint considering it works and works well. Now if they'd fix the Lucid Virtu.....

Ah ha! Now I get it, the multi-quote. Of course I saw this after I already posted, but will do so in the future. Makes more sense and makes the board look better. (I'm an old man and my brain goes out to lunch a lot.)

So the ISRT wasn't dropped, it's newer! (Where would we be without Google in our lives?) Thanks.... And the last comment, I believe you. In fact I believe everyone here, doesn't make any sense to fib about things because when one gets caught he/she will never be believed again. It's like crying 'wolf'. (But I'll look at the picture because you took the time to put it up.) biggrin.gif
post #5747 of 9343
Is there any harm, other than using a little more power, in setting the Minimum Process State in Windows 7's Processor Power Management (PPM) to 75%, rather than the standard 5%? I like the way my system feels "faster" when doing non-CPU intensive things when set this way. I'm overclocked to 4.3 and with the PPM set to 75% and the system in an idle state, core #0 is at at 3.4 while cores# 1 thru 3 are at 1.6.

Thanks.

I applied pressure on the heatsink while running prime95, the temps went from 90 to 70 right away, I shut down the whole thing, put out the heatsinks fan and tried to unscrew the bolts holding the cooler (ive done it before, dw) , they just won't move and I don't want to break anything, any ideas guys? the cooler is Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Rev.2
