Hi,

I followed the initial setup guide and I'm a little confused. Every time I bump up the ratio my Vcore also bumps way up. This is with the voltage in Offset mode and using +0.050 V.

So at a ratio of 33 I got a reading of 1.240 V.
At a ratio of 35 I got a reading of 1.304 V.
At a ratio of 37 I got a reading of 1.368 V.

Did I miss a setting or am I just confused? I was trying to find my highest ratio using "stock" voltage, like the "Starting off" section in the guide.

Thanks!

Sorry, it's a P67 Extreme4 Gen3 (1.10 BIOS)and i5-2500K.

The flip side of this is I can reset all defaults, set it to ASRock's turbo 4.4GHz setting, and it's stable; Vcore 1.304 with temps in the low 60s.

So I could just leave it alone. biggrin.gif

Good guide. The note about the c states is interesting.

The command rate should depend on the memory specs. My memory is recommended to be set at 2N. But the system seemed stable on either setting.

With a 2500K and Extreme6, my settings are: 4.4GHz, offset +0.020 (~1.288v), LLC 5.
4.5GHz requires a bit more vcore.

Before:
* Advanced Turbo 50 - Disabled
* Load Optimized CPU OC Settings - Turbo 4.6GHz
* Internal PLL Overvoltage - Enabled
* Intel SpeedStep Technology - Enabled
* Core Current Limit - 150
* Host Clock Overrride (BCLK) - 100.0MHz
* SpeedSpectrum - Disabled
* DRAM Configuration - RAM stock settings --> 1.5v 1600mhz
* CPU Core Voltage - Fixed Mode - 1.36v
* CPU Load-Line Calibration - Level 1
* Everything else on Auto except for the c3/c6 states to disabled.
338
After:
* Ratio: Manual Max Ratio = 46
* Advanced Turbo 50 - Disabled
* Turbo Boost Power - Manual
* Short Duration Power Limit - 250
* Long Duration Power Limit - 250
* Core current Limit - 250
* Internal PLL Overvoltage - Enabled
* Intel SpeedStep Technology - Enabled
* Core Current Limit - 150
* Host Clock Overrride (BCLK) - 100.0MHz
* SpeedSpectrum - Disabled
* DRAM Configuration - RAM stock settings --> 1.5v 1600mhz
* CPU Core Voltage - Fixed Mode - 1.395v
* CPU Load-Line Calibration - Level 2
* Everything else on Auto
vccio/PTT = 1.05, pll = 1.627
VID = 1.3761, vcore = 1.368.... so an offset of = -.0081 or -.001 Whenever I go to offset mode and disable the c3/c6 states my computer won't boot! Am I doing something wrong?
Any idea why my temps are like 10 degrees hotter?
338

vccio should be left alone this could account for some of the heat, i would increase the pll should get you into windows 1.7 was my sweet spot could go any lower
also more turbo wattage will = more heat

Nice Guide, I've just got one problem, somehow i don't have a "Power Saving Mode" option on my ASRock Z68 Extreme4

Bios: 1.60

EDIT: Updated my bios to the newest version (1.70) , but there's still no "Power Saving Mode" option.

Hey guys,

So I finally had the time to overclock my 2500k. I'm running an ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3. I was able to push it to 5ghz (50x100) @ 1.45v (under load in CPU-Z) at only 60C after an hour of Prime95 Blend. Is this acceptable for a 24/7 overclock? I don't fold or anything so it won't be under stress unless I'm gaming or transcoding a movie to my PS3. I also passed 10 rounds of IntelBurnTest and OCCT for an hour. I believe the max volts for a 2500k is 1.52v so I feel pretty comfortable. My PLL voltage is 1.709v.

What is everyone's opinion on this? Is this safe for 24/7 usage?

Thanks again,
Matt

Thats a good OC, have you done any benchmarks to actually see what the performance is compared to lower OC or stock?

Also I would prob let prim95 run overnight if you plan on keeping it a 24/7 OC, just in case. You wouldnt want to be deep into a gaming session and get an issue.

The pro3 gen3 will not be getting load line calibration, I was just told via email.

I'd avoid that Asrock board in the future :-/

Hmm why would they remove that? What about manual vcore? Do you have it, cause I dont...

I am kinda regretting my choice of getting this board now to be honest...I really have no idea why they released gen3 version of famous z68 pro3 board and removed such essential features....It feels like brainfart some sort which they realised now but are too lazy to fix it.

That's what it amounts to.

The previous generation motherboard had it, as does the next, so why the hell would any programmer take it out of the pro3 gen3?
