ASRock Z68 Discussion/Owners Club - Page 294

post #2931 of 2941
Good to see this board still has visitors! I have the ASRock Z68 Pro3 MB with the core i5 2500k Sandy Bridge (gen2 I think), and I would like to upgrade to Windows 10 in the near future (whenever I receive the update files from MSFT). I'm currently running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate and would like to know if I need to update the bios ( currently P1.60 bios version) or any other significant ASRock files? THANKS for any help!!

I had been using a 2600K at 4.6GHz stable for the past 4 years with my ASRock Fatal1ty Z68 Pro Gen 3 MB with a voltage offset of +.080, as anything lower would not be stable, and temps around 76c with my NH-D14.

This week I got a 3770K 3230B665 E4 off eBay and have tried to get it stable at 4.6GHz. I started with a voltage offset of +.010 and IBT would crash, so kept upping the voltage. As of now, it's at +.050 which show 1.318v in CPUZ and temps using my NH-D14 are in 86c with IBT being stable.
So I guess this is a crappy OC chip I got then? Any recommendations?
So it's been about two weeks now.
I've had success at 4.5GHz, but I'm still having a hard time finding a stable 4.6 OC.

Here are the settings that I've been using for 4.5GHz for a few days, stable with Prime95 24hr and IBT at 12hr.
Voltage offset +.005v, Turbo voltage +.008v, LLC 5, CPU PLL 1.750v (lowered from Auto 1.832v), VCC VTT 1.05v Auto, PCH 1.059v Auto, VCCSA 0.925v Auto), DRAM 1.650v 16GB @ 2200MHz.
With those settings, IBT shows 1.248-1.256v with temp of 79c, and Prime shows 1.240-1.248v with temp of 79c. Idle is 1.136-1.160v.

I first tried LLC at 2, then went down to 3, 4, and ended up with it at 5 (the lowest) as any higher was causing too much voltage and the system to be unstable and kept failing Prime and IBT after 30-90min.
I did try to increase the VCC-VTT and VCCSA as you suggested, but it didn't do help with a 4.6 OC, as that keeps failing.
I've increased the Turbo from +.008 up to +.043 in steps, and still 4.6GHz fails.

Update:

This makes no sense to me. I've been using these above settings for 4.5GHz for a few days. Everything has passed, IBT and Prime 95. Today when I turn my system on I start up Prime and it fails after 2-5 min. Same thing with IBT. I lower it down to 4.4 and and get a BSOD while windows loads. Upped the voltage, now windows loads but prime still fails.

I don't get how I can get 4.5GHz and it is working fine about 4 day, even 24hr of Prime passed and a few hours of IBT, but today both keep failing withing a few minutes of starting the stress test.

Installed yesterday on mine; ASRock Z68 Pro3 MB with the core i5 2500k Sandy Bridge. Seems to be running fine. I did the upgrade with the intentions of following up with a clean install but it's going good with just the upgrade. I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit to Windows 10 Pro.

I had been running the last preview build on a separate partition so Win 7 would not be bothered.
It worked fine with my ASRock Z68 Fatal1ty Pro Gen 3 and 2600K, no additional drivers needed to be installed separately.
When I put the 3770k in, it did update the drivers and working fine.
I have yet to do the "free upgrade" over Win 7, which I'm not thrilled about, but you have to do that first for it to generate your activation key before you can do a clean install.
So what I'd have to do is back up/clone my drive first, then do the upgrade to get the key. Recopy the clone back, and then could do a clean install of Win 10 on a separate partition. All of that is time involved, so it may be a while until I get to it. Maybe someone might find a work around.

Hi,
would need some quick help:

I have my second Asrock z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 MB with an 2500 k Processor.

One first one I could easily OC setting Core Multiplicator to Manual and Multi to 40 for 4 GHZ without other adjustments, all fine.

Now with the new one with actual Bios 2.30 there is no manual Multi Option to choose from only "all Cores" and max Mutli of 37, but even if I chose that it runs only Standard with 33 Multi and 3.3 Ghz Processor rate.

I think this is a new Bios issue, my old one had Bios 1.60 I believe,

What should I do, my i2500 k could even ran 4.5 GHZ due to his former owner.

Many thanks for help!

Post screen shots of your BIOS settings

Format a flash drive in FAT32, boot into BIOS, press F12

Also take a look at this guide.
