Maximizing my 2600K 24/7 Clock

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I recently finished building my rig and now I'm working on overclocking. The current settings are as follows:

Speed: 4.5 ghz
Vcore: 1.3V

I believe it is stable because I have been running Prime95 for 2 hours and get these load temps: 62 69 67 67

This will be a 24/7 clock and I would like it to run for about 5 years. I got a blue screen when I tried 4.6 ghz at 1.3V. Should I try uping in the voltage to something like 1.31V or 1.32V so I can get higher clocks. Or should I just be content with my current setup?

EDIT: I'm worried it might get too hot if I up the voltage anymore.

Try running prime for a little bit longer and do the usual, gaming etc if it doesn't bsod then your fine. Cpu throttles at 95c, so you decide how high you want to go, some say 80, others 85c. I say keep it under 80c and you should be fine.

EDIT: Take a look at the sandy stable club for overclocking and temperature reference.

You can push more but do not go over 1.5 voltage and do not pass 85c

Good luck with you new pc

imo as long as temps don't get higher than 75C and volts stay bellow 1.5v you are fine for 24/7 use.

you can push it harder than that (and still last 5 years)

raise the multiplier a little bit more at least 47 or 48 like they say below 80c is fine

As suggested already, you should probably run your test longer. Checkout my thread for some additional info: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...nt-stable.html

Alright, so I just tried to overclock to 4.7 ghz. I started at 1.33 Vcore and went all the way up to 1.35 Vcore. Unfortunately, when I ran Prime95 at 1.35, worker #7 encountered an error.

I don't really want to raise the Vcore past 1.35V and I feel like if I can do 4.5 ghz at 1.3V, then it should be easy to do 4.7 ghz at 1.35V.

Anyway, I'm testing out 4.5 ghz at 1.29 Vcore right now. Prime95 has been going for 1 hour so far on that voltage and my temps are pretty nice (60 67 65 64). If this runs through the night (about 15 hours), I will probably use it as my 24/7 clock.

Anyone know why I can't get to 4.7 ghz? Does the worker #7 error indicate anything?

have you enabled pll overvoltage? you need to do so past 4.5ghz... and going up 200MHz will need more voltage :/

I had 4.5Ghz stable (well sorta) at 1.31, but to get 4.7Ghz, I had to go all the way up to 1.41 which put my max temps at 84. too much temp so I left it at 4.5Ghz.

Actually he might not have to. I can hit 4.9GHz with PLL Overvoltage off, it might be a combination of the voltage and the multiplier that necessitates its use. The point where I think you have to enable it is if Windows won't completely load (never reaches desktop).
