i7 2600 OC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently am messing around with the host overide clock (Bus Speed) on my ASRock P67 Extreme4 and would like to know if it is safe, and how high can I go and be safe?
Currently running 34.0 x 105.1 = 3574.52Mhz according to Core Temp.

i thought with the new SB stuff your best bet is overclocking the multiplier only? i have a 2500k and i do 45X100

Well I can't overclock the multiplier because it is locked?

ah sorry i misread it as 2600k.. yes the only way to do that is base clock then. from reading these forums and a few other sources there seems to be no evidence to suggest overclocking baseclock damages your system, just aslong as it's stable. however i have heard that base clocking (especially with the new SB stuff) is extremely limited and you'll be lucky to get 105mghz out of it (because you're basically overclocking the whole system at the same time),

as long as it's stable i'd keep going, i dont know why anyone else hasnt chipped in here

I have seen this written time and time again about the non k cpus. The base clock is NOT the only way to overclock these chips (which as the above poster mentioned is limited). You can raise the turbo multipliers up to 4 levels above stock. The regular 2600 will run stock at 3.5GHz with all cores in use, so you can raise the turbo so that the chip will run at 3.9GHz with all cores in use (before touching the base clock).
