ASRock Z68 PRO3 i2500k: Searching for stable 4.5GHz - Page 3

Yeah I've got the turbo limits at 250 already (newest tests are lowest on the spreadsheet). My CCL is only at 200 though, what effect does that have on OC stability?

Dropped the clock from 45x->44x->43x where it finally passed 18hrs of Prime95, max vcore observed was 1.328v

So apparently my chip just isn't capable of over 43x from looking at my previous tests in the spreadsheet? Is the only thing to do now lower the +0.050v offset until the overclock can't handle 18hrs of Prime95 again?

Spreadsheet updated
