I've ran prime95 for an hour and a half which should be good for normal use according to the guide, however my games seem to crash 15 minute to an hour inside the game.

I'm assuming this comes from my oc, seeing as I didn't have these before. Is this a matter of turbo voltage, or is something else the matter?
Oh, and I went back to 4,5 ghz with 1,248v at load and around 80 degrees on avarage.

As far as I can tell, increasing turbo volts should help your system from getting Whea errors.

Increase the turbo, let prime run and what I do is open the web and surf some sites while checking event viewer every now and then for the errors(surfing seems to increase the chance for an error for me, probably because the web uses different instructions compared to prime so to me it seems like a way to 'stress text' for errors.).

Setup custom blend and just let run. Personally i run mine for 8 hours so i recommend at least this. You will most likely need to increase turbo

I am new to overclocking as well and ran through the guide, I don't want to get max overclock just up it slightly more so went with 4.0ghz and left the voltages on auto, load line at level 5 but all other settings to what was shown in the guide. Should I be looking at changing the vcore, turbo and load line at 4.0? I just left it at auto and didn't change it to offset.

The HW monitor shows that I get a max vcore of 1.296v and temp of 58 degrees after running P95 for a couple of hours, would changing the vcore in the bios to 'offset' lower my max voltage from the auto setting? If I leave it at auto would changing the C States to option 1 help reduce power consumption or will that only be noticeable on the 'offset' setting.
post #6605 of 9536
You never want to overclock on auto voltage. You will want to set the correct voltage for you specific overclock. With a 40 multi you will most likely running a high negative offset. Which CPU do you have?

Oh ok I have a 2500k I just don't want to have the dramas of bsod so thought auto would be safe
post #6607 of 9536
Auto is the worst option for overclocking. Follow the guide using offset and additional turbo voltage. Getting BSOD's is just a part of overclocking, its going to happen

As i said if you are going to stay with a 40 multi then you will be running a negative offset. What is you idle and full load vcore in CPU-z with a +0.005 offset

I have a 2500k, and initially OCed it using auto, and determined two things: (1) it easily OCed to 4.5GHz, and (2) it really did not run all that hot. Now that said, I agree with Lucky about using auto voltage as an OC solution, and he'll probably jump all over this post. But my experience, and I emphasize it was only my experience, it was fine for my first OC experiments with my mobo and 2500k. And ironically, I ended up copying Lucky's settings from somewhere and using them as a starting point for my final OC solution. I'm still running stable at 4.5Ghz on air.

Good luck.

Hello all! First time poster, long time forum reader. So I finally got some liquid cooling going on and decided to o/c my i5 3570k to 4.6ghz. I've been running P95 for over a hour now, my temps have peaked at 85c, but seem to mostly hang out in the mid 70's area. My only concern is that my vCore is at 1.320 (peaks out at 1.328) After reading through some of the threads it seems a little high to me, but this is my first o/c. I've kept bumping up the turbo voltage whenever I've received a BSOD, a worker stopping, and a program crashing. I'm having trouble figuring out the BSOD since I'm using Windows8 now. If during the 12hour test I need to bump up my vCore, should I just bump down .1 or .2 ghz or am I still in safe operating levels?

Hello


Excuse my english

I have a doubt with my motherboard asrock fatal1ty z68 professional gen3. I have installed the graphics card in the PCIe slot closest to the CPU. I think in the manual suggests as PCIE2.

I need to install a tv card in the PCIe x16 slot farthest from the cpu (Believe that in the manual suggests as PCIE5 and says "PCIE5 -PCIE x16 slot, Red) is used for PCI Express x4 lane width
graphics cards, or used to install PCI Express graphics cards to support 3-Way CrossFireX TM function.- "

Can I instal in the PCIe x16 slot that comment (PCIE5) a PCIe x1 card tv (hauppauge wintv-hvr-4400) or a PCIe x1 audio card (creative sounfdblaster zx)?

This can cause problems or slow graphics card?

I have to change something in the bios?

thanks
