I would REALLY suggest to use prime95 linked in my last post, instead of IBT for stability.

i would try bumping the pll to 1.789 is the next mark or even lowering a notch heck try both or try increase of VTT
ive come to the conclusion that x124 is vtt/pll up or down and 101 is vcore

Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to OCN and overclocking in general. I'm trying to get my 2500k to 4.8ghz but so far I've only managed 4.6. I feel my core voltage is a bit high at 1.4v but my VID is 1.3661v. Is there anything I can do to lower that and keep it stable? I'm using the offset method explained in the guide but again I'm not very comfortable with voltage peaking at 1.4v+ and temps at almost 90C at 4.8ghz.

Update on the loadline calibration issue with the pro3 gen3 bios. Asrock tech support believes that it wasn't intentional for that to be taken out. Their devs get back from vacation on the 30th and I'll be forwarded a beta bios as soon as possible.

even though I have a gigabyte board I will give you rep for putting this together. Well Done KennyParker. thumb.gif
post #47 of 9531
Hi, I have the same board as you and been wondering same thing too.

Do you know if that beta-bios you were talking about is going to be a public release, or if not, do you think I need to contact their support in order to get that?

Although I got my chip stable @ 4,3ghz with good temps, lacking LLC and/or manual vcore is rather annoying...

Versions of the BETA bios are made available on the ASRock website; under the "Beta Zone" for your product.

Probably will show up on the website once it's made.

This is pretty much correct, only, the 1.10A beta is old, don't use it, doesn't have a fix in it.
post #50 of 9531
so i just made the switch from an AMD setup to my first new to me Intel setup with the Extreme4 gen 3. Any suggestions on which bios i should look for? Saw the official is 1.10 currently, is there a beta bios that works better or has better stability? Not gonna go crazy, but looking to hit 4.6-4.8 for a daily OC. Any info would be helpful... Thanks.
