Hello,

since I have some stability issues with Windows 8 I just wanted to follow this guide again, but now some settings are just greyed out.
Example: Long Duration Power Limit

I don't think these settings have been greyed out before, at least I could change them some month ago.

I appreciate any help.

System:
Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 (BIOS: 2.30)
Intel i2500K

What i like to do is find the fft size that is causing issues and then run a custom p95 run using only that size. Makes it much faster to isolate an issue and experiment with different settings.
Try lowering pll if you haven't already. It'll help with temps which may then lead to even lower vcore.
You should be able to do other things while running p95. Those cpu cycles get worked a lot harder by p95 than anything else, so doing other things actually lowers the load on the cpu.

If I understand correctly, it's FFT length 1120k
.
So I'll try lowering like you say and check back.

It could also be your ram. Run memtest.

Yeah, try lowering PLL first. This could be an IMC or RAM issue, but with such high temps the IMC is also overly stressed. Get those temps down and the IMC may come in line. Else you'll have to experiment w/ Ram voltage and/ or VTT.

Make changes 1 at a time and run 1120 to 1120k custom runs until you can pass 1120k for 20-30mins. Run memtest as well, but I find this method gets you there faster.

It's been 25min, the 1120k test is runing smoothly at 86*C. I let the PLL to auto, when I lowered it ( maybe wya too much lol) i had BSOD, Prime95 crash and ect lol..



Hmm. Now, it's has been stable for 2hour with FTT 1200 to 1792. With 8192Mem and 5 for the time ri think.

Max temp hitting with fan on low, 89*C...


Hmm.. 5:17hour, 223test ran, no error or hardware failure... with FTT 1200 to 1792 time 5.



Started a new test. 6hour, from the normal 8 to 1792FFT with 5 timer. No error or hardware failure while I'm doing my stuck. Max temp at spike was 97, range arround 86-94*C with fan on low, which are quiet i cant even hear them...

I've stepped away from the overclocking community for some time, so please bare with me since I'm a noob all over again.

Ok So I've been tweaking my OC settings since last night thanks to this thread, I have it at 4.6 GHz stable, max temp is 87C on core 2. Problem is, a friend of mine is saying those temps are too high, and that I have to up the fsb to get real overclock. This guide says not to touch fsb.

My question is, is it safe to up it up to 133, and if not, why shouldn't that be used to OC anymore, since I do remember fsb used to be an important part of OC'ing.

This is with PLL on auto? Dd you change anything else?

Unlike a quad or 920, BLCK on i7 is very sensitive and not very OC-able. You can up the fsb, just that it hasn't been that fruitful for sandy or ivy. I've seen a few bumps to 105, 107... More trouble than it's worth.

Would appreciate hearing how it works for you.

Yea as said above you dont overclock w/ the FSB anymore. Sandy/ivy uses Bclk or baseclock and its recommended to leave it at 100mhz and overclock by increasing the multi. Even if you did increase the Bclk most reviews state that you wont get much past 105 or so.

Haha I don't remember if PLL is on auto or not but I think so. It has been running for 19hour...



GUess I got it stable for good @4600.. but higest temp ois 97*c... is that too high?
