My system has randomly restarted maybe 4-5 times in recent weeks. Never happened 2-3 weeks before. I have my system overclocked to 4.4 GHz and never seen a problem before the 2 weeks. Most of the times its on idle when it suddenly restarts. It had passed an 8 hour Prime95 without errors too. Graphics Card is overclocked too. What do you think the problem could be? Is it something to do with CPU overclock ?
post #1432 of 9543
I know my way around PC's well enough, but had never overclocked. I just got a PC worthy of doing it to I guess. I've been reading up on the process for weeks now, just making sure I understand what I'm doing and don't mess anything up. I eventually want to go up to maybe a 5ghz overclock, but since I'm new to the process, I thought I'd start a little more modestly. Following your guide, this is what I got last night.

I used the "Green" method (more because it seemed a lot easier to start with than my concerns of power consumption).


I started with:

Multiplyer: 50
offset: +0.005v
Turbo - +0.004v

Obviously I got nothing 50 froze complely, 49 & 48 just instant restarted, 4.7 got a blue screen, as did 4.6. So I went to 45. at 4.5ghz things seemed completely fine. Side note, on my Asrock z77 extreme4. Under the "Primarly Plane", Secondary, etc. All those options only let me set no higher than 500.

None the less, DFid that, and followed up with a 4 hour Prime95 test. Even during Prime95, My temps never rose above 85-86 on the processor, my Vcore is pretty stable at 1.29 the entire time, sometimes hitting 1.30. The prime test showed absolutely no fails at all. I'm rocking the Hyper Evo off market cooler, using the push pull method, cable management is good, etc. I'm seeing 50's to mid 60's when gaming, and right now running my browser, yahoo messenger, Skype, and my media player I'm seeing Upper 40's to lower 50's in temp, my Vcore being stable at 1.29, occasionally popping to 1.30 for a second.

Does this seem good to you all? Can I chalk my first shot up as a success? smile.gif

I just updated my BIOS to the 2.20 from the 1.10... and I didn't realize I was going to lose all of my stuff... anyone know if I *might* be able to overclock more... or less... where I should go through the whole process all over again?

Just wondering, since it'll be days to simply arrive at the same result I could just copy my settings from before... just wondering.

A BIOS update will not make an overclock any better or worse.

I have a starred note right in the BIOS update mode that warns you that your settings will be erased.

Just overclock just like you did before (and from now on, remember to save down your settings).

Im assuming your running offset mode? If so then most likely your idle voltage is too low, what is your current offset?

Do you have C3 and C6 disabled?

Yea I saved them. It's funny cause I was looking at the guide on my phone while updating and the hidden tabs don't work on the phone... so I did not see that note until afterwards. tongue.gif

I'm back at my same OC from before.

So I was able to boot into 5.3 just now messing around... I've never been able to do that before. I'm wondering if now that winter is coming, I'll be able to sustain 1.52v for the core without getting above 80C. rolleyes.gif

It may actually be worth looking into! biggrin.gif

Thanks for the awesome guide! Can not +rep you enough for it! thumb.gif

my goal is a small OC for video editing and then just folding when im not editing. i edit a lot of video so any extra increase in performance to encode faster would be nice. and if not im still happy rocking an i7 for my work. makes a huge difference over my old core2duo
also changed c state and offset mode to the ones in the guide and the first option with offset so im not always running at the fastest

That pretty much is the place to start. But read the guide to get some guidance on how best to tweak. But an OC of 3.9 or 4.0 you can almost just crank up the mult to 39 or 40. If that's all you do, your vcore will got up as well, but not by much. So much of the OC guide (IMHO) is how to get the highest OC while establishing a stable voltage boost without pushing it too high so as to minimize heat. Good luck.

........I just realized that for the last year I've overclocked my chip from 3400mhz to 4500mhz........without ever increasing the voltage...at all.

Wow.

I wonder how fast this bastard will go with some juice.

Ok so update. I got the 0x101 error, which the guide states I need to increase my vcore. Safely, how much do you think I should increase it by? This only happens when gaming. Also, I'm getting a "Failed to Read" error when playing wow after about 10-15 minutes. Could this have to do with the same issue, or a different one?
