The auxilary molex power connector for SLI/Crossfire is for PCI_E 16x/8x etc lane/bus stability and wouldn't help your overall stability if your not running SLI/Crossfire smile.gif

thanks for the advice. i'll give linx a go wink.gif

Edit: I downloaded the latest version but couldn't see those options you mentioned. How do i run it like that? I just ran it on the highest problem size setting i could do and my CPU only pulled 83W. I still would've thought the CPU should be drawing more than this at my overclock.

IT is frustrating, and I never fully understood why I couldn't get my LinX 0.6.4 (AVX) to pull the load (114w/115GFlops) that my Intel Burn TestV2.exe ... I tried what was supposed to be the latest versions from several different DL sites ................

Anyway back to your less than stellar OC'ing chip. I think your mobo is fine, I think your PSU is fine if you doublechecked all connections/updates etc. You may just be unlucky and got a below average 2500K, while 4.0-4.2ghz is still an awesome overclock % wise, you may feel cheated reading about all the other 4.6-5.0+ stable clocks around here frown.gif ... I know the feeling, happened to me with an Opteron 165. The only sure way to rule out this being a "runt of the litter" sub-par chip is to put it in anouther set-up/machine and see if it clocks better/higher? smile.gif

EDIT: Sorry since you didn't link your other thread, I looked it up, [I'm feeling your pain w/ Runt of the Litter Chip] haven't read the whole thread yet but I'll make notes here ...
1) for sure go back to the 1.10 Bios!
2)doublecheck ram try both XMP/manual TRY just one stick! ... check this out ... http://gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=10062
3) do the CMOS reset, start over with the turbo presets, don't change any thing else IF your sure your ram is stable (see above link) This is the easiest/fastest/safest way to see what your chip will do, Then you can "fine tune" with a manual overclock later!

thanks for the reply smile.gif i only have this setup so cant test it anywhere else unfortunately. i have tried every BIOS going for this board, makes no difference! im not overclocking my ram, just setting it to what it should be, used the xmp as well. ive tried the presets without changing anything else - no luck. i haven't tried with one stick of ram yet though which someone else did suggest to me. i decided not to do it because i dont want to run one stick of ram so if i cant overclock with 2 then its pointless. i'll give it a shot though to see if i can clock it higher, and if so - then what? really appreciate the help man smile.gif

here's the link to my thread btw if anyone can help: http://www.overclock.net/t/1202566/can-anyone-help-me-get-my-2500k-past-4-1ghz/60#post_16258130

QQ - Hope this is an okay place to ask it.

I finally went into my BIOS last night and changed the multiplier to 40, and disabled the speed spectrum (I was getting the 99.8). Those were the only 2 changes i made, i left everything else stock. I ran Prime 95 blend all night (10 hours) and my temps never got over 50c and my highest VCORE reading was 1.28v. After stopping p95, my vcore idles at .98v. No errors with p95. My question: Is 1.28v too much VCORE voltage for a small overclocking of 4.0ghz at full load?

And one more thing. I was using CPU-Z, CPUID Hardware Monitor, and Real Temp for readings. I noticed that Real Temp gave a VID of 1.320 while CPU-Z and CPUID were always the same at 1.24-1.28 under full load. I read that Real Temp only gives an estimate, and that the other 2 are more accurate. Is this true? Which one should i rely on for VCORE?

Use the 1.10 bios for overclocking, for many reasons I won't go into here.
Your reasoning is a little off here smile.gif , doesn't matter if your overclocking your ram or not, when you stress the system with a CPU OC it puts extra stress on the ram! You may have one stick (or2?) that work fine at stock but become unstable when you OC your CPU (thats why I linked you above/same principle OC'ing or not), that's also why you get tips from old time experienced OC'ers to check and doublecheck your ram, IE DRAM volts, VTT volts, VCCSA volts (for our boards), use 1 stick to eliminate all possibilites, especially if you don't have a friends rig you can test the 2500K in.
Personally I'm afraid you may just have an average chip frown.gif

EDIT: If you have a sub-par ram kit? (one week stick?) RMA it ... GSkill is an awesome company and like eVGA will bend over backwords to make a customer happy! Unlike Intel and many others ...

Those volts/temps are fine, actually very good!, and are also fine for 24/7 IMHO smile.gif

because its not a beta bios right? i didn't realize the ram gets stressed by cpu overclocking if the ram is running at the spec its supposed to be running at - first time ive heard that. i'll go back to 1.10 bios and try running 1 stick of ram at a time then. i think this is the only thing left to try out of everything that people have said so far. thanks again thumb.gif

Edit: Tried each stick of ram individually and tried all the things suggested about settings - no luck. i have noticed something i didn't think to much about before which could be something here. normally when you change some bios settings then save and exit, the computer restarts and you get the bios beep. whenever i go for a 4.3Ghz overclock that doesn't happen. the signal to the screen just goes and my mouse and keyboard turn off but the computer doesn't restart. the bios code usually shows "70", sometimes "60". 60 = DXE Core is started and 70 = South Bridge DXE Initilization is started.if i force the computer to shut down and turn the psu off for a few minutes, then turn it back on i can get back into the bios (keep in mind this shouldn't have reset anything because i haven't cleared the cmos). when i get back into the bios the cpu clock will be at what it was before i set it to 4.3Ghz.. So basically it fails to set the cpu clock to 4.3Ghz and just freezes without saving the settings to the bios. i thought when you changed settings in the bios they weren't applied until the computer was actually restarted, so wondering why its crashing before thats happened... what do you make of this? thanks man.

Right, and there are a lot of inconsistancies with Beta bios'/ram/voltages/ and especially XMP settings frown.gif ....Sorry it took so long to reply ... NFL madness smile.gif then sadness frown.gif ... I'm a long time 49'r fan ... and I could still strangle Kyle Williams (rookie) 24hrs later :O
Anyway if I understand you correctly, that all sounds normal to me? But why don't you use that "awesomely convienient"CMOS reset button(s) (you shouldn't ever have to do a "hard' shutdown?)--> go to your "User profile saves" (pick a favorite) and reload/boot?
This is overkill, but if I'm getting really frustrated, I will sometimes, load my last stable OC from "User Profile Saves" boot into windows, then do a complete shutdown, restart --> bios--> double check all settings, sometimes the saved profiles do mess-up and the settings aren't what you thought they'd be :O --> complete restart again, but let it boot straight to windows --> restart off of the "start" menu desktop and back to the bios--> then try OC settings again, but not all at once, especially when changing your (BLCK) ,spread spectrum, or ram timings ... Also what is your "Boot Failure Guard" settings? This can be a useful safety net at times, other times frustrating/time consuming and people won't give it enough time to do it's checks frown.gif
I really wish we had another machine to test that chip in ...one last shot in the dark, and I bet you tried it already, but CMOS reset/put every thing back to stock/ don't forget AHCI? if needed/ reboot, reboot again into the bios, go directly to preset Turbo 4.6(don't change anything)... if fail? rince/repeat with Turbo 50 ...

Anyway if I understand you correctly, that all sounds normal to me? But why don't you use that "awesomely convienient"CMOS reset button(s) (you shouldn't ever have to do a "hard' shutdown?)--> go to your "User profile saves" (pick a favorite) and reload/boot?
This is overkill, but if I'm getting really frustrated, I will sometimes, load my last stable OC from "User Profile Saves" boot into windows, then do a complete shutdown, restart --> bios--> double check all settings, sometimes the saved profiles do mess-up and the settings aren't what you thought they'd be :O --> complete restart again, but let it boot straight to windows --> restart off of the "start" menu desktop and back to the bios--> then try OC settings again, but not all at once, especially when changing your (BLCK) ,spread spectrum, or ram timings ... Also what is your "Boot Failure Guard" settings? This can be a useful safety net at times, other times frustrating/time consuming and people won't give it enough time to do it's checks frown.gif
I really wish we had another machine to test that chip in ...one last shot in the dark, and I bet you tried it already, but CMOS reset/put every thing back to stock/ don't forget AHCI? if needed/ reboot, reboot again into the bios, go directly to preset Turbo 4.6(don't change anything)... if fail? rince/repeat with Turbo 50 ...

ah right. i dont know anything about nfl really. so your fav team lost eh haha tongue.gif

well i have used the cmos button a couple times when thats happened but i always thought you were meant to shut the computer down, turn off the psu and try drain the remaining power out of the board by pressing the power button - then reset the cmos? wasn't sure if it was dangerous to reset the cmos while the computer is still running, just seems like a stupid thing to do... i do have a template oc profile saved to which makes things quicker. i do have boot failure guard enabled and the count is on 3 (default settings for it). im not even all that sure what it does?? i have reset the cmos many times and tried many different things... i have only messed with voltages a little though. ones ive changed are cpu core up to 1.45v, pll from low as possible to 1.9v and vtt from stock to 1.129v. i could probably take some of those voltages a little higher and should maybe try changing some other voltages. im not sure what limits they all have though. i'll have to see if i can find something on that... thanks again for the help!

Nah it is quite OK, actually preferred to use CMOS reset smile.gif BUT also let it go through it's Boot Guard cycle 1st, you might get lucky?! ...
Did you try the "One Last Shot" I mentioned above? Make sure to use the cmos/restart order above smile.gif good luck! ... to bad you don't live nearby, I want to have a shot at that stubborn chip of yours tongue.gif
