this is 4.4... I dont like those temps or that voltage... but i started crashing at 4.5 @ .004 turbo/.005 offset/llc 3
post #5122 of 9544
At the end of the guide under "Getting closer..." I don't understand what the process is here. What is the initial test for this stage to start it off? Also if you fail it, how are we supposed to achieve the max cpu multiplier if we reduce the cpu multiplier? Why does the 2nd fail say "(max vcore)" there? Are there two separate ways to fail the test? Can someone explain the process a bit for this stage?

When you get to the "getting closer" part of the guide, you should have a semi-stabe (able to pass 5 mins of prime) overclock using the settings : offset 005 and turbo .004 (usually somewhere between multiplier 42-45). If you have done that, the "getting closer" section is where you will up the multiplier by 1 and then add turbo until it stops failing. Yes there are two ways to "fail". The first is when you BSOD or Prime95 kicks you errors, the remedy is to add more turbo. The second way to "fail" in that section is when you have reached a predetermined (by you) maximum safe voltage for your processor, the only remedy is to lower the multiplier by 1 and move on to the next section. For me, I stay under 1.300 to limit degradation and keep temperatures manageable, Intel puts max VCore at 1.5.

We will be able to help out allot more if you fill out the rig builder at the top of the page, and then include it in your signature.

Don't give up! It might seem daunting, but these chips are pretty resilient to mistakes. They have built in safe guards against baking them, and will throttle down and turn themselves off before any damage can be done. Also, don't hesitate to ask more questions, there are a ton of people here that are ready to help.

I followed the guide and so far I am happy with the results but seem to have hit a wall at 4.9GHz on a 2500K and Asrock Z77 Fatal1ty Performance. Here are my settings:

49X Multiplier
100 Host Clock
Spread Spectrum Disabled
Speedstep Disabled
Additional Turbo Voltage +0.012V
PLL Overvoltage Disabled
All Power Limits 500
GT Overclocking Disabled
RAM Timings are stock at 1866 1.5V
VCORE Offset +0.005
LLC 2
PLL Voltage 1.709

These settings work great for 4.9GHz and VCore will get to 1.432 and hit 90C using the Intel Burn in Test which does make the processor throttle. In Prime 95 it will hit 1.424 VCore and the temps max out at 83C. I am not crazy about these temps though but I know under normal use it shouldn't come anywhere near these temps. Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should change to get it to 5GHZ? If I leave all other settings alone and put it to 50X multiplier, it will fail to POST. I have tried increasing the Turbo voltage and got up to 0.020 and no change. Any other recommendations would be appreciated. I have had it boot at 5GHz before when setting a fixed voltage around the same that I am seeing when testing, I have also tried increasing LLC to 1 and that didn't help.

Really - you got 49 p95 stable with 5/12 mV O/T? and these settings produce a vcore of 1.432? wow Enable PLL Overvoltage and add to offset not turbo watch temps.

I don't actually even need the O/T to be at 0.012, it is stable at 0.004, I just bumped it up to 0.012 to try to hit 5GHz.

Enabled PLL Overvoltage, dropped O/T back to 0.004, didn't touch the offset and it booted right up. Idling I am seeing 1.368 Vcore and so far with P95 running for a few minutes I am at 76C and 1.424 VCore.

How are those numbers even possible.... ? 2500k has the same starting voltages as a 3570k don't they? So he's basically at 4.9 at nearly the lowest settings? Screen shots!

But he's running 1.424 at load with .012 turbo and .004 offset...?

Thanks for explaining all that. Here is a link to my rig (can't figure out how to get it in signature): http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/5090461

One question on the guide. When choosing offset mode vs fixed mode Im curious to know how much power consumption fixed mode costs in terms of the power bill compared with offset? Is it a big difference? (If it only meant an extra 5 bucks on the power bill every month I wouldn't care about that) But more importantly to me is how much does fixed mode reduce the life of your cpu vs offset mode?
