*Solved* After overclocking cpu-z still says 3.3ghz - Page 2

post #11 of 40
Thanks for that. I hazard a guess that since your Vcore is set to auto, your vcore volts and a heap more other settings may be either to high or too low to hold the OC.

Did you get a software package with your mobo to enable OCing via software? I know gigabyte supply some type of OCing software...

Normally its not a good idea to use this type of software long term but bear with me.

Fire up that program, set to a mid OC, save the settings and restart. Did it hold the OC?

if it did, note the settings in BIOS and use those as your starting point.

Your vcore may need a little boost and what is the spec voltage for your RAM?

Also, when you get a chance, can you pls complete your system specs smile.gif

ok so the program gave me 3 options 3.77, 4.33, and 4.47 i choose 4.33

now my processor on cpu-z is saying its at x16 1644.5 MHz... at idle

it seems to flux between 3.7 and 1.6 now should i stress it?

at least this time its fluxing between 2 big gaps of numbers where as before it would just stay 3.3 or 3.295

not sure exactly what it did but that program did help i did what you said ran the program and went into bios all i did was change the multiplier to 40 so i get about 4.1ghz im running prime 95 heat sensor test checking my heat lvls and so far its running at 4.1ghz instead of 3.3ghz temps seem to get about 70C ish i have a cooler master in there not the stock sink and fan so my guess is its working now thanks let me know if i need to do anything else to "stablize" or anything to my system i really appiciate the help and if theres anything i can do just ask

No Probs. Im glad it seems to be working.

Your temps seem a smidge high but Im not that familiar with your CPU. Assuming your TIM application was on par, that should be fine.

Just make sure your CPU fan speed is set to PWR so it spins up when the temps start to rise.

To make sure your system is stable, run Prime95 on blend for at least 12 hrs (over night if your is a hurry).

If it errors on a particular test, pls note it and get back to us.

got my fan set to go up and down based on cpu temp im running the stress test you asked me to know is it safe to use my system as its stressed? for example watch some tv shows i have on my HHD? or should i just let it do its thing till tomorrow?

also by 70ish i mean each core was between 68C - 72C

It's safe to use, but will be slow and prime will be slightly less effective.

Excellent.

Ideally, you should run the test without other stuff running in the background but having said that, its just stressing your system just that little bit more... so, no, thats fine. smile.gif

Temps seem okay What heat sink do you have on that CPU again?

that i only have one fan going on it but could put 2 that is if i take out the ram fan then i would have space for the second fan lol

You could and see if that make a difference. Ram coolers at a tad over rated unless you are heavily OCing your ram.

Just make sure the CPU fans are blowing in the same direction.. thats called push / pull. One fan will push the air through the cooler and the other fan pulls the air out. This can maximise the cooling of the heat sink.

If you do try this, try and make sure your fans are the same type / make. If they are different, make the "weakest" fan, the pull fan

BTW, thanks for your reps, you just got me my third rep flame smile.gif

I hadnt even noticed it until your last post, lol
