Oh - this H80 is not loud at all (except at start up). The pump is very quiet - maybe banging it around a bit like i did during install helped tongue.gif

Bumped my mult to 46 and ran OCCT for about 40' late last night. All went well. Got up this AM and had about an hour before work, so thought I'd run it again, and as Windows opened up, I BSODed. Curious. I did not read the screen unfortunately, so I may have to re-create that again this weekend. In my early days of OCing this system, I tried 46 and had some success, but with different voltage settings. So I was surprised at the BSOD. I was planning on trying a mult of 47, as my system completely froze with this in the past, but again that was with much different voltage settings (I am currently using the same settings as Lucky). Will play more this weekend.

Question: should I need to reset the CMOS in my OCing forays, will I still have my saved UEFI settings, or does the CMOS reset wipe those out? I just started using that feature at the bottom of the OC Tweaking section. Thanks.

Interestingt! I haven't tried going past 45 yet.

Have you ran memtest86 with your current settings?

I put new mem in my machine and ran memtest86 and it would lock up. I had to up the VCore voltage then I was able run memtest86 for 6+ hours without any problems. I followed that up with 9+ hours of prime blend.

Interesting that I thought I was stable at 45 but memtest86 proved me wrong.

Resetting BIOS will wipe out your saved settings. If you reset, just restore your saved settings from disk then go into BIOS to load your saved settings again.

Hitting the CMOS clear reset button on your motherboard should not effect any saved UFEI BIOS settings because that is exactly what I had to do several times when I was really trying to push certain things.


My settings at 4.8 did not like me adding another 4gbx2 sticks of ram so I had to reset my memory settings to auto boot up stable and reset them back to Default XMP 2 which set them correctly at 1866 and their default timings. My next step is to get them stable at 2133 because I know its possible but that is the least of my concerns atm.


The majority of you guys should have no issues running at 4.4 - 4.6- 5.0 unless perhaps your motherboards are your limiting factors my friends mobo cannot go higher then 4.5 no matter what he tries to do. I felt bad then again I didn't because he got that as a great deal at microcenter with 50bucks off on top for buying an i5 at the same time some gigabyte board i believe and his AUTO OC settings are odd numbers like 4.3, 4.5 etc where as mine are even at 4.0-4.2-4.4-4.6-4.8 all totally stable but at insane voltages to achieve that and super higher temps for no legitmate reasons which is why we manually adjust everything.

Everyones i5 2500k should run 4.4 at almost default settings with a slgith bump in vcore according to many OC pros I have read about and recorded their settings. I have no idea why many of you fuss so much about so many options when you can or should be able to just select manual bump to 4.4 and bamo up the vcore to adjust.

gluck either way once again my 4.8 settings are listed in my Log. I currently have one BSOD issue I am still trying to resolve only while playing one game and created a thread about that if you search for my name.

To make it more clear, resetting BIOS or pressing the clear CMOS button will put your BIOS settings back to factory default settings. If you had settings saved in a user profile, those save files will remain and you could simply reload them after clearing your CMOS.

Oooohhhh!
I thought all CMOS values were cleared as the manual indicates once a reset is performed.

I did load my BIOS settings from disk after a reset since that was what I thought was correct. I didn't check CMOS to see if my saved profiles were still there first.

I do imagine that a BIOS update will clear the profiles then?

I appologise for giving out incorrect information.

I learn something new all the time.

Thanks for the correction!

When you say disk do you mean floppy or cd lol?
post #388 of 9531
May be the wrong place to ask, but, has anyone had problems booting into their BIOS with their ASrock GEN 3 boards? My comp locks up whenever I try to enter my BIOS. It occurred after installing Virtu drivers (problem seemed fixed after uninstalling them) and now it wont let me boot into it after overclocking. Any thoughts?

first off explain what you did during overclocking and what your currently at... as a start

secondly sounds like you need to start over and clear your cmos like the guy above asked about.

answer part one then we can help guide ya.
post #390 of 9531
Hah, yea that may help. Well I followed the guide step by step and got a stable 4.7 gHz going with an offset of +0.080. CPU voltage never went above 1.43 when I was Stress Testing and my temps never went above 55 C (I was thinking of trying to push it a little bit more). Anyways, that is essentially all I did and whenever I try to get back into BIOS the comp just freezes up on me and I have to hit clr CMOS to get back into my BIOS. This occurred too before I started overclocking when I had installed VirtU drivers, but I removed them and the problem went away as well.

So yea, my work around to get into BIOS is hitting the clr CMOS on the MB which seems to do the trick but its very inconvenient.
EDIT: I have the latest BIOS update installed.

Let me know if you need any other information and thanks for your help!
