need help with 2600k overclock and z68-ud7 board problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am having some trouble with overclocking my sandy cpu. I am running it on the Gigabyte z68-Ud7 board. when i go into windows, i have tried using the quick boost to overclock it, and i have gotten it up to 4.6ghz, where i want it to be, however once i do that, and rebot and try and get into the bios it wont let me. I want to properly do an overclock, and not with software, so i would like some help in how to overclock it to 4.5ghz stable.

the specs of my pc are:
2600K
Gigabyte z68-ud7 board
ati 5870 sent in for rma, currently using a 6850
corsair vengeance 16gb ram
ax1200 psu
H70 for cpu cooling

if anyone would be able to help me with the overclocking/ and or the problem i am having, that would be great!

thanks!

Hey man, not to sure why you can't get into bios. But once you get in the best thing you can do is up the voltage to 1.35volts for 4.5ghz the average chips reaches it at 4.5 at those volts. However your chip may not need 1.35volts, so you can start at lower volts and work your way up till you find a stable overclock. But then again there are many factors as to which cooling you are using on your CPU air vs water and if you are happy with the temperatures while stress testing the overlock. If you need more help ask the people at the sandy stable club. smile.gif

i put it to that voltage but a soon as i stress test it dies. do you have load line on and if so what setting? or did you simply up voltage, and increase multiplier.

hey mate , you can try using the multi load line setting , this helps deal with v droop I think, which means it will try keep the voltage at a constant level, I think currently I have my CPU at 4.9 ghz at 1.365 volts and the multi load line setting at 8. By memory not 100% sure though
