I give up on overclocking - letting mobo do it for me - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Well, my OC BSOD'd at 4.6. So I guess 4.4 it is for me until I can figure out how to manually set stuff up. 4.4 ran stable with no problem. 4.6 gave a BSOD. Error code was 124...

I'm happy with 4.4 unless someone can tell me what I should change to get more out of it...

i've been using the auto 4.4 setting for a couple weeks now without any BSOD's. I have been using it like I would normally and haven't had any issues. I run finite element analysis software which taxes the CPU, but not near as much as P95 or IBT. I've run both of those and it's been fine. I had a max voltage of 1.34 and max temp of 50degC...I think that's well within the limits for the 2600k

Hey Saint. I meant to msg you back but hadn't gotten around to it yet. I'm at 4.4 as well. Could you get to 4.6 with auto settings? I tried to disable spreadspectrum but 4.6 still wasn't achievable. Anyone have any suggestions what auto settings to change?

It took you 1.34 to get to 4.4 and you are only at 50c? Wow, I'm impressed. Oh, you are on water...that explains it.

For oc's of 4.2-4.5 you can just up multiplier and go with 1.3v -1.35v on voltage and your done pretty much. I was running 1.3v x45 without issue. I found using auto tune way over did the voltage. Now running x48 using offset +0.60 max voltage is 1.41 and it was still fairly easy using the knowledge around here. I don't see what's so hard and frustrating. I'm a newbie first build etc and if I can find it easy....

OP did you try leaving everything stock and just adjusting the multiplier? Its best to not change a lot of settings as your starting out, for one it makes it easier to see what is working. If you change 8 things at once you can't really know what's causing it and its pretty much a waste of time that way.

Mine needed around 1.35V at that.
I thought most people could get there with stock voltages around 1.3v? I guess not? I'm there with like 1.305 (forget what it is exactly). I'm pretty happy so far because I feel more confident its not a poopy chip. 5 Ghz is my goal which I may not reach with the hyper 212+.

Is overclocking an i5 different than an i7 in terms of what you can expect?

Well, make sure that you do proper stress testing. Do a long prime blend run. I would say about three hours.
