New to intel and 2500k need some help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have overclocked AMD cpus for years but I am really overwhelmed. I have read just about ever guide around here and some say to turn this power saving off and some say not to. I also see to not use the load line calibration thing or whatever it is and others say to. I also see this offset voltage that people talk about some say yes some say no who do I listen to. Just looking for some help of what I should be really turning off for my set up and what should be on. Also what guide to really read and understand thanks.

I have almost the exact same board as you and I posted a thread HERE about my settings for a great overclock at 4.8GHz. If you have any questions after reading through that thread, feel free to ask!

What you will have to do depends on your CPU, and how far you want to overclock it.

1. Leave on SpeedStep

2. I haven't found any issues with LLC. Just make sure you watch your vcore if you are changing between LLC settings.

3. Offset voltage is great. At idle your CPU will use less voltage, and at load it'll have enough voltage to keep it stable. However, it takes a decent amount of tweaking to get the offset just right.

4. Most settings you should be able to leave set to auto.

5. Make sure you up the power limits on your board to prevent throttling.

6. Make sure you enjoy your new CPU, and keep an eye on your vcore and temps.

Ok gasman I seem to not understand the vcore vs vid thing I'm at 4.5 with a CPUz core volt at 1.280v to 1.288 but my vid is 1.3661 is this bad not understanding all that.

Also just set CPU Current Limit: 250
Turbo Boost Long Duration: 250
Turbo Boost Short Duration: 250

Turned off C6 C3 and the other one

Have not messed with anything else PLL LLC is level 2 I'm pretty sure

Does this all look ok to start testing now with prime temps are in 50s but i got a error of rounding was .5 but expected .4 or whatever

Ok nevermind LLC was level 5 I put it on level 3 and got to core 1.336 and vid is 1.366 but I do seem alot more stable now no errors yet.
