2600k voltage/bios help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! Im tryin to get a stable 4.2 clock, while keeping my voltage as low as possible. There are some things im not clear on though and trust me I have read and read forums.

first off Fixed vs offset. I get that a fixed voltage is a fixed voltage. I got a stable voltage at 1.26v at idle, but when I run prime95 it drops to 1.XXv, cant remember off hand. I understand this is Vdrop, but I have not read where anyone has said thats its ok. People just say, fix this or fix that. I understand that the volts are dropping under load, assuming because its drawing more current, but still seems odd. Offset, well currently as im typing this, I set my offset voltage to -.075v and im running prime95 and seeing a sold 1.192 Vcore voltage at 4.2ghz and like .920v (give or take some) at idle. What did I do? Is this good? I dont get the offset.


I was reading a genaric OC thread and saw some screen shots of step by step ovverclocking. I saw the person but in 1.12v as a fixed voltage and booted up and ran prime05 yadda yadda yadda. I tried to put 1.12v as a fixed voltage and I cant even get into windows lol, I must be missing something. Here is the thread actually, take a look at his pics, http://www.clunk.org.uk/forums/overc...beginners.html

I have an ASRock extreme4 p67 board with a 2600k. I used the auto OC mode that came with the board in the bios but at 4.2ghz it pushes my Vcore to 1.297, and Im sure thats pretty high for 4.2. I dunno, maybe im just misunderstading my BIOS or somethin. Help would be much needed!
