I have the z68A GD65 G3 basically the same board you have minus a few items

before we start let me tell you that you will not see a huge increase in FPS in games but you will add heat but I am sure that H100 will be ok.

Im currently @ 4.8 on my 2600k

Have you tried the OC Genie? because that alone will get you passed 4.2Ghz

if you want to go higher start with the Genie to get stable clocks and then start going manual.

Enable XMP profile for your RAM.. that will help and set your ram to 1600

set multiplyer to 45 and just leave the bus.

I run 1.45v on CPU core and 1.8v on PLL

This thread helped me out a lot, spend a few and read over it and you have any questions just ask and I will do my best to answer.

Very nice... pretty easy isn't it.

For the RAM the 798.2 is normal, if you want to bump it up a little just up the Bus by 1 click so 101x45 and it will ever that out if you really care about that slight bit.

That voltage seems WAY too high for 4.5ghz... 1.45v? Anyone else chime in here?

Also, I would learn how to do it manually, rather than have some automated program do it for you. That way you know what you are getting into and can actually learn how to fix things that may go wrong.

WOW please read the whole post before replying...

If you had read you'd see I said "I run 1.45v"... I am @ 4.8Ghz and even at 5.2 I was running 1.45v... I wasn't recommending for him to run 1.45v I was merely sharing my settings at my speeds/clocks.

I also only recommended him to run OC Genie as a starting point... using the OC genie I got to 4.2 and was rock solid... if he only wants to go to 4.5 he could easly reuse the settings and add a little on to get the additional 300mhz he is reaching for.

for not reading my post and snaking my post on top of it. and not adding any value to the thread or the OP whatsoever

1.45v is normal from the research that I have done for my clock speeds. I think you are the one with the issues and the name calling is REALLY childish. Grow up!
post #9 of 12
maybe his chip can't go 4.8ghz without that voltage?
You can't judge that based on your chip.
post #10 of 12
It is mostly the boards limiting the CPU not the other way around.

This chip was at 5.2 @ 1.35 in a different system.

The link I provided with sum that issue up, these boards are still fresh and have bugs to be worked out.
