2500k. pc freezing 4.3ghz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi everyone. ever since i upgraded my computer and used ai suite2 to OC ive been having so much trouble. i have never manually overclocked before and i would love to learn ive been trying to read as much about it as possible.

my pc specs are
CPU – i5-2500k
heatsink – noctua NH-D14
motherboard – Asus p8z68-v-le
gpu – radeon HD 5870
ram – g.skill ripjaws 8g (4gx2)ddr 1600
PSU – thermaltake toughpower 875W
main hard drive – ssd kingston 128gig sata2
games hard drive – WD black 1tb. + 2 more 1tb storage

during prime95 blend tests my computer will freeze, no errors or anything just freeze and i have to restart my computer.
using the ai suite2, i used auto and fast setting.
at 4.3ghz with 1.312vcore and 67C max temp it lasted about 11 mins before freezing. i pushed extreme to do see and it went to 4.8ghz but some thing crazy like 1.48vcore if i remember correctly and froze after 1min or less on the blend test, didn't get to see temp

im sorry im not sure what other info u would need to be able to help me, but any advice would be very welcome.even just a point in the right direction since there is so much on this site.

perhaps if i was able to manually OC. kinda annoying buying a 95dollar fan if i can even oc to 4.3 :/

thank you

Overclock in the bios it's as easy as upping the multiplier and vcore.

reset cmos and read the guide
Never ever use softwares to OC.. no matter how promising it looks
only in bios ,

ty for replys.

just a question though. should my computer be freezing? i mean i just did the blend test again at 4.3ghz it lasted 32mins before freezing max temp was 69c and vcore max was 1.32. also at that oc should i be getting 69c with the cpu cooler i have?

i kinda wish i had the older school bios menu. the asus one is confusing to me.
