2600K OC question!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I brand new to Intel boards and CPUs (although I am a very long term veteran of AMD overclocking). I have a P8P97 PRO mobo and a Core i7 2600k.

What confuses me the most is the new UEFI instead of Bios and I am so not used to it at all. So I had a couple questions.

1. Are there any certain motherboard settings I should change that don't involve overclocking? (for example EPU, not sure what that is really)

2. What is the absolute max or threshold temp you should not go above on a core i7 2600k?

3. I literally changed one setting in my UEFI from auto -> manual without changing any manual settings and went from 3.4Ghz to 4.4Ghz (stable) and I was curious how this overclock looks or if anything is super weird with it:

All kinda depends on how much u want to OC. Dont go anymore than 1.52v. Some keep it on auto, some done. I dont. Right now your at 4.4. You should be able to get around 4.7 at 1.390v. If your using prime 95 to run stability tests, yours going to see much much higher temps than just regular, gaming or normal use. With a water cooler, u should be in the 20c range at idle. Your 2600k can handle ALOT. People are getting 5ghz with their 2500k on air. U can push yours alot higher any questions shoot me a pm

Take a look in the 1155/P8P67 PRO Owners Club (In my sig). In the second post you will find some good information about overclocking.

Well I ran Intel Burn Test for about 10 runs and P95 for a couple hours and it was stable. At the moment I'm getting around 30-35c on all cores on just download games on steam. Feels a tad high, I get around 55-60c on all cores on full load. But maybe I will jack up the multiplier a bit and see what I can do, since the vcore seems to adjust itself which I love.

I got it stable at 4.6Ghz at around 64c full load, seems like 70c is the max for i7 2600k Ive been reading.

I also disabled the C1E and C settings in the bios so the CPU frequency doesn't randomly downclock, is this a good idea?

Yes, that's fine and you should it keep it that way. Most (or if not all) power saving features should be disabled so that the OC is more stable and safe.
