2600k Problems

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have thus:

Asus Maximus IV Mobo
2600k
8gb GSkill 2000mhz DDR3
Dual 580s

Trying to get a good overclock, but the multiplier max is 42, why can I not go higher? This is supposed to be unlocked correct?

Also how do I get my overclock solid all the time without turbo boost?

I just want it to sit at 4. whatever.

Thanks for any help.

Not being able to take the multiplier higher than 42 might be a BIOS issue, do you have the latest BIOS?

Turbo boost saves you power and you don't notice any difference in performance with it off, so why would you get rid of it? Not much point in idling or surfing the web at 4.5GHz

Nevermind, just realized I ordered a 2600, not 2600k, so the multiplier wont go over 42...

Im such an idiot.

Umm.. Yeah...

Well you've only got the base clock to work with but I think you can't increase much.

I was so mad at newegg when I picked up the box and realized I had only a 2600...not the unlocked version.

Then I went to the site, looked at my order and indeed I put the wrong damn processor in my cart.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AA.

Im overseas so it takes forever for stuff to get here.

Anyone want to buy a 2600...lol

Oh no that sucks!! Still, a 2600 at 4200MHz is quite fast. I'm very pleased at 4500MHz which is just 300 more...

Yeah I know, going to return it if possible, probably not because I opened the stupid thing and stuck it on the board already.

Need to look up there return policy.

Want to get into some folding and other things, so wanted the 2600k unlocked to get a nice OC.

Gah I hate being such an idiot.
