Wanna try get to 4.8 or higher, you guys think it would be safe or should I just keep the 4.7GHz? I'm already stable 24/7 with my OC so IDK. What do you guys think?

i feel that a 10-15C cieling is good..so 90C would be my absolute max. also, EXTREMELY NUB question - how are you guys taking pics of UEFI??? sure doesn't seem like a picture taken by a camera..tongue.gif

Plug in a flash drive formatted to fat32, and press f12.

 

Think there's a bit more to it then that, if someone wants to elaborate...

Yeah that's what I thought. I'm at around 82-85 most of the time, hit 90 when it's the hottest time of day. I live in the tropics so it gets pretty hot. The heat is what's stopping me from getting to 4.8GHz. Meh maybe Ima stay at 4.7 due to the heat. The processor can take up to 105 degrees anyway so I THINK I'm pretty safe. lol

Hey guys,

I've got a 2500k running on an Extreme4 Gen3, and I'm following this guide to a T, as it's my first overclock. I'm approaching the 50 multiplier mark for the first test, and am wondering if there's something I'm doing wrong. It's passed 5 minutes of Prime95 no problem, and I haven't messed with literally any setting except the multiplier, as stated in the guide. If there's something I overlooked, if you could point me in the right direction, that would be great.

I've hit a wall, I havent messed with PLL voltage, but I've managed 4.8Ghz stable with 0.102 Additional Turbo Voltage. I was trying to reach 5.0Ghz but I couldnt even boot my computer with 4.9Ghz. I've even tried bumping it to 0.215 with 4.9Ghz but it would always freeze on Windows loading screen.
Anyone have any clues to help me out here?
Edit: I was reaching 1.384v with Load Line level 3 and the Additional Turbo Voltage of 0.102 (as I mentioned above) and the package temp reached 72C. So I thought I still had some room for improvement. redface.gif
Any help here?

PS: I've done everything by the book, as per the guide instructed me. The C states are set like it instructed me to for the Offset mode (C1E enabled and the rest disabled). VTT and PLL voltages are set on Auto, maybe I could change 'em around also I could enable PLL Overvoltage (which has been disabled so far). How about Offset Voltage? Should it be +0.005 and thats that? Thanks!

It looks like youve got an amazing CPU! Just check the temps on HWMonitor and the voltage on CPU-Z (there you can also confirm that its reaching 5Ghz) or something... if it's all withinthe limits then u should just be happy about it.

PLL Overvoltage.

Almost always needed 4.7GHz and up. thumb.gif

Without it you won't get past the boot screen.

I do not have PLL overvoltage, and I am at 49 multiplier, just got my first bluescreen at x48 without any adjustments to turbo boost? Am I really just that fortunate?

searching around on here i see people saying 90c is max. Maybe search around on here( outside the Asrock thread) and see what temps other members are hitting at a 47 or 48 multi.

I've actually UNDERvolted my PLL whenever I got crashing issues. Never had booting issues really. At 4.7GHz with a 3570K so IDK if I overvolted my PLL if that means I can achieve higher clocks, say 5GHz which is even rarer for Ivy Bridge. Think my CPU would probably melt though lol.

Yeah I think my temps are gonna be a little higher naturally just because of the ambient temperature where I'm from. I'm from the tropics where it gets pretty hot. It's the temps that are stopping me from trying to get higher..
