Is 4.8Ghz the limit on my 2600k? T_T

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, I just got my Silver Arrow because I wanted to try and hit 5Ghz. I've been playing around with different settings and it seems that I can't even get stable at 4.9Ghz.

Right now I'm at 4.8Ghz, core voltage is set (Fixed) at 1.380v with LLC at Level 3, so it's at 1.344v, according to Cpu-Z and my ASRock tuning software thingy, during full load with LinX and P95. I'm hitting temps of 68c max. I haven't done extensive stress testing, but it hasn't crashed on me yet with these settings. I'm actually running LinX right now as I type this and everything is going well.

To be able to get to 4.9Ghz, the most "stable" setting I've found is core voltage at 1.360 with LLC at level 1, so it's at 1.386v - 1.392v during full load with LinX and P95. I'm able to run 20 Passes of LinX, I haven't run P95 extensively yet, but it doesn't seem to stress my PC as hard as LinX does. With these voltages I'm getting temps of up to 73c. Even though I can run these programs with no problems, it's just random web surfing that will cause a BSOD or a freeze/restart. Usually get x0124, 0009c or 0001e or something, I don't even remember, haha.

So is there a way to break this and try to get 5Ghz, or should I just be happy that my computer is running at 4.8Ghz. There seems to be a huge gap in voltages already between 4.8ghz and 4.9ghz.

Thanks!
Alice

if you wanna hit 5ghz, your going to need more V's. I hit 5Ghz with 1.490v. You need to at least be above 1.450v. If that doesnt work go to 1.470v than 1.490v, than 1.510v. Your still in the safe zone with all those volts, as long as your temps are good. Those are all very common voltages

Check out the volts for these people who have been lucky to hit it!

Are you getting 1.490v under load, or do you have vdroop that drops it down a bit under load?

But wow, I didn't know that I'd have to crank it up so much for 5Ghz. I stopped my LinX test for 5Ghz as soon as it hit 1.400v cuz I didn't know if it was safe or not.

It looks like Temps weren't listed in that... So what are safe Temps during full load?

Btw, thanks a lot for the link.

for sandy bridge you dont wanna go over 1.520v. But Ive seen it. ALOT actually. But there under water. As long as your temps are good. no reason not to puch it to 5ghz. I use 5.1ghz for benchmarks and HWbot. Other than that, I like 4.5 -24/7 at 1.30v
