Yea if your failing P95 whether its Small FFT or Blend then your not stable.

Which is why not failing on any cores is a requirement to pass the test. That core could hit an error anytime during use and give you a BSOD.

But if you want to still roll with it, no one is stopping you. But yes, once one core fails no need to stress anymore because you have failed the test. smile.gif

5GHz is a very hard overclock to get. Only about 10% of all the chips can do it.

Hey Lucky, can you give a baseline settings for reaching 4.7ghz with this board and cpu? I just thought you'd more experience in OC than me and just asking for some advice smile.gif>
Thank you.

Ah alright. I did have an old PhenomII 955 that was not Prime95 stable, but never gave me problems during gaming. I will probably do a bit more fine tuning and go downclock a bit to find where I am fully stable and go higher from there. Thanks for the replies guys. smile.gif

Hi all and thanks in advance for help.......this is a great guide! I have never overclocked before and the instructions were easy to follow. However I have a question as I'd hate to have this running and because I did one wrong thing I mess my cpu up (dont have the money to buy a new one yet)

cpu: i7 2600k with Hyper 212 EVO cooler
16gb RAM
570 gpu
Haf 932
Win7 Pro

I've already ran a 12+ hour test with Prime95 and passed, my temps were highest at 79-80 degrees if I remember right so I assume Im good there from what I've read
CPU at 4.4 from stock 3.4
my offset voltage is +.030, LLC is level 2
CPU under 100% load is 1.272-1.288v
CPU core voltage reported in BIOS 1.304-1.312

Now since I've already passed I should be fine, but reading that I want my voltages to be as close as possible to each other by changing the level of LLC (usually 2 or 3) am I currently fine or is there I way to get it even closer that I missed. Remember this is my first try so I probably did or I didnt fully understand something. Thanks again for help.

You're fine! thumb.gif

The idea of LLC is to try to compensate for loss of voltage, but it is never 100% right. As long as you passed the test, you are fine.

My wife and son are going to be out of state for a few days starting tomorrow. Now that my system has been stable for the past few weeks and finally in a case, and it is going to be raining on Saturday, and no family commitments, so, I think I've got my day to push this and see if I can get stable at 4.6 or 4.7, and I'll be using your settings Lucky. I'll see what happens. I[m pretty sure 4.6 will go, but the few times I've tried 4.7, the system has frozen, though I was not using these settings. Sp maybe some magic can happen. I've had a couple of really dog chips in myy life (3200Venice), but I've had some just killer chips, too (2600 Mobile Barton that ran stable and cool at 2.6GHz, which was pretty good back in 2004. My e6750 OCed like a bandit with the right mobo, so maybe the same here.
