5GHz and Beyond! - The Quest for a Stable Overclock

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 

My goal is to get my sig computer stable at 5GHz. And I need your help. I've read through the Sandy Stable thread, the Fixing 124 BSOD thread, and the 5GHz club thread, but I'm still struggling to get my computer stable at 5GHz.

I have a doc of all my OC attempts and their results below.

Currently, I'm plagued by the dreaded 124 BSOD. I'm trying to iterate through VCCIO levels as per this thread.

Not all 2600Ks will do it. How far have you gotten?

Give 1.175v VCCIO and try it. Are you using manual or offset voltage? Cpu PLL 1.700v

I'm aware that not all will do it. But my WC setup is pretty ridiculous, so I'm hopeful.

What do you mean by "how far"? Do you mean how long I've been able to run Prime before I get a BSOD?

Sorry for not making it more clear, I meant how high have you gotten your OC while being stable... or did you just shoot straight for 5GHz?

You are kind of off track here. If your using manual voltage, why are you using speedstep and turbo? If you want your chip to drop speed, you want your voltage to drop as well. You should be using offset voltage. You should read in the Fixing 124 bsod thread again in the op about the C3 & C6 states and try Offset.

Manual at the moment. However, once I find a manual voltage that I'm comfortable with, then I'll switch to offset.

All by current BIOS settings are on the second tab of the Google Spreadsheet.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what I've read, but everyone seems to recommend that I try to find a stable OC using manual, and then switch to offset.

From the 124 fix thread:

Quote:
If you are using Manual voltage then you must either run them on auto or enable them.

In both instances C1E and Speedstep should be left on as it has no effect on stability and it helps overall temps and the longitivity of your chip especially when using offset voltage.
I was just following those instructions.

Sorry, double post.
post #9 of 45
Yes I recommend that to. Disable Turbo, speedstep and C1e while doing that then. Or disable C3 & C6 and set to offset. When using manual to find max clock, it works better when your cpu speed is jumping around for no reason. That's why it's better to disable those. Thats why I outlined those settings at the bottom, all enabled there could help 124 happen.

I'm shooting straight for 5GHz. In my previous OC experience, I found that it was a better use of my time to:

1. Pick a "dream" frequency.
2. See if I could get there within my self-imposed voltage/temp limits.
3. If I couldn't, then I'd walk backwards from there, getting the highest possible OC based on those limits.

One of the reasons that I do it this way is that, in the beginning, I really don't have any idea of what "safe" voltages and temperatures are. I also have no idea how my cooling system/chip will handle higher voltages in terms of temperature. Usually, it seems that the concept of "safe" is full of speculation and little experience. SB seems especially susceptible to this.
