Need some help overclocking my i5 2500k

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, I searched for it a while, and nowhere it tells me how to manually set vcore voltage. From what I've read it seems like you should be able to set it, rather than set the multiplier, and then automatically voltage goes up.
Currently, I have it at 3.8 ghz, vcore goes up to like 1.31, 1.32 volts, but from what I have read, it seems most should be able to get up closer to 4.5 ghz at that vcore.
How do I change this? I have ASrock P67 Extreme4 mobo.
If vcore is set automatically at 4.5 ghz, my temps on Intel Burn Test at very high go above 70C. Up to about 75C I think.
Idle temps are like 34C. Ambient temps I'm not sure of, but the AC is set at 76F, but theres is a very noticeable temp difference walking into my room, and my reese's pieces minis melt in my room. I'm guessing it's atleast about 30C? So I don't think cooling is too much of an issue considering ambient temps.
So, help manually setting vcore lower at higher multiplier to keep my temps down would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

What cooler? Also, Intel Burn-in test is going to push the heat out a lot more than any standard app/game that you are trying to run. 75c is not insane, but auto voltages always seem to be way higher than needed. Give us some more info, and maybe we can help you poke around in your bios.

You can set it manually in the UEFI, set the vcore to fixed, then put the value.

Oh ok, thanks! My cooler is coolermaster hyper 212 plus.
I think my temps are reasonable considering my ambient temperatures. Like around noon, idle temps are 35C, but at night they go down to 32C or so.

Actually, there's another thing, too. With the current settings for 3.8ghz, when I turn on my computer it starts up for a second, shuts back down, and then completely boots. There's no other issue other than that. How come that's happening?
