Asrock Extreme4 youtube video - good advice?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm trying to get a stable Asrock Extreme4 at 4.4ghz at least on auto clocking but it seem to freeze due to 124 errors I get. I was told to manually overclock it but not sure where to start on the bios. Is this a good video to follow?

Note: this settings are for P67



thanks

It's a good start, although I wish you and others would read and learn what each one of these does, even if you don't remember anymore, like me lol. It helped me understand what needed to be changed. Start low and move up slow. It will get more finicky as you start passing 4.2 GHz, meaning you'll start having to REALLY change your vcore and settings to get stable. Here's my 24/7 that i work and move up from:

My settings are:
multiplier:42x
BCLK: 100.1 Mhz
vcore: manual:fixed:1.225v
CPU PLL voltage: 1.791
all other voltages: auto
additional turbo voltage: +.008
spread spectrum: disabled
speedstep: disabled
all the C states still enabled
pll overvoltage disabled
load line calibration: level 1
For RAM, if its above 1600mhz, use XMP profile

examples of things i tested separately: (so you see what i mean when i say learn for yourself and don't copy others' settings, which is why i'm only showing you my lower 24/7 OC)
load line only stable at level 1 for me
additional turbo allows the fixed to move up, .004 wasn't enough.
c states disabled caused me to fail to boot a lot, dont know why, doesnt seem to matter if i leave on.
bclk i manuel'd to 100.1 cause it would fall below if i didnt.
lowering pll was more stable for me (it supposedly helps stabilize clocks below 4.5 and allows u to use lower vcore at these lower clocks.

so when i put vcore under offset mode it does the vcore automaticlly?


can anyone else post their z68 setting?

thanks

That's all good, but if you want to save power at idle without bugs, disable all the C states and leave speedstep enabled, assuming it's stable, it won't cause problems, just clocking down on idle... you don't really need 4+GHz for web browsing and flash games

due to my not having enough time to learn everything about overclocking a cpu, I opted to use the "Load Optimized Cpu Settings" function in the UEFI. I tried each setting. I was able to achive a stable clock up to 4.4. I'm running 4.4 now with complete stability. Anything over that I get a BSOD with the same 124 error as you. Since you have the 2500k, yours may be different. Once I have more time, I'll try and manually push my system further...but I'm happy with a 4.4 OC right now...especially since it was so easy to do...

I believe our boards downclock automatically. I have noticed using my Asrock extreme tuner that my clocks aren't at 4.4 unless I'm stress testing...
