4.4 GHZ @ 1.300 Prime BSOD after 10 mins

4.4 GHZ @ 1.310 Stable (What im running right now) 63 C in prime95
Stable in Prime 95 Large FFT's for 1 hour and Intel Burn test MAXIMUM 5 Passes and All games and 3D mark vantage. Lookin good for now. Im gonna be so pist if 1.31 isnt stable @ 4.4 GHZ.......well break me the news is my chip bad or good? or medium?

4.8 GHZ i had no boot

4.6 GHZ @ 1.39 was stable but i didn't wanna feed that much Vcore....







So does my chip suck? Where does it rank compare to golden chips.....and should i return it?



Load temps in 60's with prime 95 And using a ASUS P8Z68-VPRO Mobo. Do i need to edit some mobo settings? i customized them alot for a good OC.......kinda disappointing OC right now. Also i think i messed up my Win7 install because it was booting so slow. So i reformatted and its running fine now......I hope i didnt damage the chip. The max Vcore i fed was 1.39 so i don't think i fried and or damaged it.......I think im being paranoid........3D mark vantage Ran higher at 427 more 3d Marks. So i know the CPU is doing better. I Reformatted and it seems good the speed. Recently updated to 0606 BIOS. Anything up with this ASUS P8Z68-V PRO....






PLL Overvoltage is off because it causes a sleep problem with the current Mobo.


DRAM Manual @ 1.50 9-9-9-24 Stock CORSAIR VENGENCE 1600 MHZ DDR3

VCCIO @ 1.062 auto

PCH @ 1.056 auto

CPU Spread spectrum disabled

CPU Current capability 110 %

Duty Control T-probe.

Phase control: Optimized

VRM Frequency: Manual @ 350

BCLK @ 100 (100 x 44)

Load Line Calibration Ultra High

Speed step = NO

Turbo Mode = NO

CPU C1E = NO

C6/C8 = Auto



Again raw specs of the build are:


i-5 2500k @ 4.4 GHZ 1.310
ASUS PZ68-V PRO
Latest Drivers on all devices
0606 BIOS
GTX 550TI



All temps are stable.
I'm assuming you set the vcore manually.
You might need internal PLL overvoltage, this depends on each set up.
I personally don't need it till 5.2Ghz but some people needs it at 4.6.
Just don't use "Sleep" if you want to OC higher. (I personally never use sleep anyway...)
You should turn ON speed steps. It helps your idle wattage consumption by automatically turning down the multi.
I personally turn all my power saving options ON since I'm on manual voltage and it doesn't affect stability.
(On off-set mode, C3,C6 makes the system to not come back from sleep. Just like what your mobo does.)
I think you need the turbo mode ON.
Spread spectrum will make your bclk to 99.8 instead of 100.
But it'll give you a bit lower load voltage and it usually makes the OC stability better/easier.
But again, each system works differently so you might wanna test this On/Off.
You may turn up the current capability to 130% or more if you are going higher OC.

Ah yes thats right manual voltage means that it would still feed that amount not lower it with Speed. Alright ill try this out. Gonna benchmark and try to hit 4.6 GHZ that was my goal. I wanna keep it under 1.39 Volts as my safety precaution. Also after Ocing my windows 7 install was slow to a crawl at start up etc........i repaired files and edited items and it was still messed up.....Perhaps from all the BSOD's and shutdowns. But i reformatted and it seems to be fine now.

Sometimes BSOD will corrupt system files.
Mine hasn't gotten yet for like 100 BSODs, though.
But it just happen randomly...

Also use RealTemp for CPU temp reading.
I use Linx or IBT with AVX for quick stress test to see my setting will give me BSOD or not.
Then I'll do Prime95 blend run for 12+ hours.
Check out the Sandy stable Club on my sig.
There are good list of many different systems that you can compare.

Whats the recommended voltage range on the i5's? I just sold my E8500 and Q9550 and if I remember right it was between 1.34v and 1.44v max for those chips. Just curious what the top range is for the 2500K I'll be playing with once my watercooling adapter comes in

1.52v is supposedly the max voltage.
And 98c is the tjmax cpu core temp.
You cannot go beyond 98c but you can go above 1.52v.
How far you can push is up to you.
Some pushes it till 1.7 and I believe I've seen someone done 1.9 with liquid nitrogen.

Its not that bad chip. You won't really see difference between 4.5GHz and 4.4GHz. Set what you feel most comfortably with. Its always have 2C cooler CPU then 2C hooter.

I honestly couldn't see a difference between 4 & 4.5, I'm running on 4 as a result. Mind you at 1080p things might change.

Use the spreadsheet in the sandy stable club link in my sig as a refrence for voltages at what clocks.
