Got a question for EVO owners, what's the best bios out right now? I am contemplating on updating the bios to see if its worth squeezing a bit more performance out my of 2550k.

Thanks y'all.

Based on what I've seen in this thread so far, I recommend staying with the BIOS that you have right now because otherwise you could end up with nothing but problems.  It looks to me like various owners of both the P8P67 and P8Z68 series who have a Sandy Bridge CPU end up with problems when they get a newer BIOS.

 

I am using 1850 and I am extremely happy with it.  Only, I don't remember where I got it from:  it's not on ASUS's website.  However, I think it was the last BIOS released that did not yet support Ivy Bridge, and I think that the Ivy Bridge-supporting BIOS versions are the ones that introduce problems to Sandy Bridge owners.  At least, that's what it seems like so far.

 

In other words, I think that if it's not broken, then don't fix it.  :)

Guys, a fast advice would be appreciated.

I don't have 2500K, unfortunately; I've the simple i5 2500. So, I can only add 400Mhz.

What voltage would you suggest for 4100Mhz ( 3800 on all cores )?

On auto it gets ~1.290V. I've set -0.050 offset and it seems pretty stable. It now uses 1.224V on linx. Do you think it needs a little more? How can I tell if there's gonna be a problem ( besides obvious lockups etc )?

Also, is there a way to run the CPU at 4.1Ghz on all cores? I mean, not just when only one core is being used...

What did you use to overclock?  I mean, did you use the UEFI BIOS, or did you use software?  If you used the UEFI BIOS, then what exactly did you do in order to get this overclock?

 

If you used software, then what exactly did you do in order to get this overclock?

In BIOS I changed the AI Tuner from Auto to Manual and options appeared.

I found an image which shows exactly what I changed: http://media.bestofmicro.com/K/5/275477/original/asus_p8p67-pro_bios1.png

On that option, "by all cores" I set "41". I cannot more due to locked multiplier. If you scroll down there's the option for the voltage. I left it to Offset and below I set -0.050v.

The reason I asked is I'm confused:  are you only getting one core to do 4.1 GHz?

Yes... Isn't the same on you? Like the normal Turbo... 3.3 default speed, 3.7 on turbo when only one core is being used and 3.4 max when all cores are being used...

I increased the default turbo ratio from 37 to 41 ( 3.8 on all cores, 3.9 three cores, 4.0 two cores and 4.1 one core ).

When you have your Turbo Ratio at 45 and you play a game which utilises all cores, isn't the speed at 4.2?

No, for me it's always 4.7 GHz.  I mean, it idles at 1.6 GHz, but any load puts it at 4.7 GHz.

 

Maybe this is the way the non-K CPUs behave.

 

If you want to show me what your settings are, then you can take screenshots in the UEFI BIOS by pressing F12 while a USB flash drive is connected.

Thanks for that tip. I guess BIOS 1704 was the last good bios. Because according to ASUS site, the support for the 22nm started with 2001. But my mobo is at 2103 because I am using the 2550k that supports it. Guess I won't need to flash the BIOS then.

Thanks again.thumb.gif

I think you see most problems and you see other manufacturers having ran into them too was update from ME7 to ME8 on those BIOS updates. For some reason for the boards it failed to install correctly then had those problems but there's a way to fix that.
