Overclocking i7 2600k to 4.8

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Can anyone help me overclock this processor to 4.8GHz. I have the Asus p8p67 LE. Everytime I get to 4.5GHz i get freezing and just a very unstable system. I'm really not good with adjusting voltages on this board so I'm asking for a little help :]

What do you mean you're not good at adjusting voltages? It's not too hard, my friend. Really all you have to do is find how far you can go at stock voltages. For example, say you can get to 4.5GHz at stock voltage, but you cannot go further. Well, increase your VCC voltage (core voltage) in slight increments until you no longer are unstable, then work your way up.

I would go higher than 1.52v, personally... 1.48v. But 1.52v is pushing it towards degradation.

I don't think you are going to get 4.8 stable on air unless you had a noctua NH-D14. Voltages for 4.8 are probably about 1.40-1.45 vcore, but every CPU is different so could be higher or lower.

I meant on this motherboard lol Alot of the options that are available on the deluxe, and pro are not available on mines.

:[ This is pushing me more towards the H100

Try setting the voltage at 1.4v. If it freezes up bump the voltage up by .01v. If you hit 1.45v and still can't get it, go back to 4.5GHz because your temps will be too high.

Edit: It looks like there is no way to manually adjust your voltage on that board. You either need to buy a new board or settle with 4.5GHz.

Should I? Is there a difference?
