Also OP I notied that you havent overclocked up to 5ghz, your just going for it. This isnt a bash at you, but its so much easier to start from stock and work your way up then. The way I see it, by going right to the 5ghz clock speed you could end up being lost for ages working out problems that you could have detected and been able to correct if you had worked your way up from stock.
Anyhow, if you need more info check out the 2600k overclocking thread in my sig
Thank you so much for your help. I'm still going on my current setup (1hr strong at 1.47 vcore, 1.1625 VCCIO, 1.7 PLL), and I'll definitely be back here, either with good news or not if I BSOD.
I do have a question about your approach to OCing, since I'm not sure if this is a philosophical one, or a substantive one. In my experience with 755, it really didn't matter if I "worked my way up" to my final OC. I found that I ended up wasting a lot
of time on P95 runs that were fairly useless in the long run. Even if I stabilized the CPU at one frequency, I found that I had to run through all the iterative checks again for the next frequency because the variable interplay was so complex. Am I missing something, or is SB actually not as complex as before, so VCCIO and PLL voltages, once stabilized at lower frequencies, are fairly good indicators of the VCCIO and PLL voltages at higher frequencies?
: more questions
Something I've noticed is that certain P95 workers sometimes fall way behind or get way ahead of everyone else (like by two or three tests). Is this just a fluke in P95, or does this point to a deeper issue?
Also, I've noticed that when I set manual voltages, the BIOS shows that the "current" voltage is one or two notches above the set voltage. Is this normal?
As always, that you all so much
for your help. I could never have gotten to where I am without you all at OCN!
My current run just BSODed after 1.5 hours. Now its time for PLL voltage iterating!Edited by Nick2253 - 10/30/11 at 7:32pm
