Trying to get 2500k to 4.5ghz

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Im currently using a MSI p67-g43 motherboard. I set my CPU vcore to 1.305v but CPUZ is telling me that my core voltage is 1.296v. Also I changed my CPU ratio to 45.

Currently CPUZ is telling me my CPU is running at 1.296v at 4.4896ghz. Temp is stable at 46 celsius.

No problem from what I see. Could be vdroop or just reading it a bit off.

Is there any tests that I can run to see exactly what speed my CPU is running at?

And is there any guide to show me what to change on VDroop? My first time overclocking =D.

I have the same board. Go to the bios
OC then droop. It should be auto. Change it to low vdroop

What do you mean tests? As in benchmarks? or frequency? If you are referring to a benchmark I know cinebench is quite popular with CPUs. And if you are referring to frequency than whatever CPU-Z tells you is correct.

As far as changing VDroop, there is a setting in the BIOS (I think its called Loadline Calibration, however I am used to Gigabyte boards so I may be wrong.) that will alter your vdroop. This is not really necessary, however, as vdroop is normal and you are perfectly able to overclock with a vdroop.

Frequency. Also do you happen to know any stability tests that I can run?

Do you guys think I should change my CPU ratio to 46 to see if it gets to 4.5ghz?
