Hey Guys - So far I got Additional Turbo Voltage set to +0.08 and offset at +0.05. This is my initial test and have been running Prime just for a few minutes. Will leave testing with Blend overnight.

This is what I am able to get including OC'ed EVGA GTX 670 FTW

nice voltage! I hope you are planning on testing more than 3 minutes though.

Yeah, I am actually leaving overnight.

If I get a WHEA Error, does that means I need to increase TB voltage?

indeed.

WHEA erros show up when you are real close, it is the processor catching its own mistakes and correcting before software has a chance to catch on that something aint right.

So I did get a few WHEA Errors overnight

Increased the turbo voltage and played some BF3 and no problems. Will let prime95 run some more when I get back from work.

Volatage is very close to what it was before. most of the time is at 1.160v and goes up to 1.172 sometimes.


Edit: I had to increase the Turbo Voltage a little bit more. have been running Prime95 for at least 1 hr without problem using the Blend Method.

My temperatures seem pretty healthy and my Vcore seems pretty low still for a 4.5Ghz.



If this turn out to be stable I will try to OC to 4.8 and I think I will leave it at that.

Hi all,

First of all i want to say that i'm completely new to overclocking, so this is my first time ever, i overclocked my CPU.
Wrote a lot of topics, watched lot's of Youtube vids, but i was always scared to do something wrong and kill my CPU.
Now i finally decided to get my courage together and give it a shot.

So i went trough the whole guide on page one, really thanks a lot "kennyparker1337" and of course all the other peoples with good advice!
Really helped me a lot! BUT it still looks like i'm doing something wrong.
To be completely honest, i don't understand all the overclock terms yet, but i hope i can get better by practice and some day become a good and understandfull overclocker as well biggrin.gif

Now i took some pictures of my BIOS and a screenshot of Prime95 after a run off 20 minutes (Settings used, that kennyparker1337 explained in the Guide).

So here they are:





Now the thing that scares me is the "Core Voltage" seems way the high doesn't it? If i compare to other people's there results. I know not every chip is the same, but still..
Temps seem to be way to high as well? I have to admit though, i'm using a Coolermaster Stacker 832 case (Love it, but already got it for +- 5 years now), and DELTA + Sunnon Fans from over 5 years ago.. redface.gif (Was from the days i was kinda crazy with all my hardware tongue.gif) CPU is cooled my a Scythe Mugen 3 with DELTA Fan on.

Now probably i did something wrong in the BIOS settings, but this is what i understood from the guide, and as i said before, i'm still kinda scared to do things wrong (by just experimenting) and kill my CPU. (If i already didn't do something wrong..)

So as you can see, i have a Intel 2500K on a ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen3 Motherboard.

Hopefully someone wants to help me out here, so i can do some adjustments and understand what i'm doing (for the future).

Thanks in advance!

Greetings,

CoUg4r.

You are not in danger of killing your chip, and you have done just fine so far.

I think you are a prime candidate for a negative offset, drop LLC to 4 or 5 as well. You really need to get that voltage down. With that much voltage, you could probably go 45x or higher.

What is your idle voltage?

Voltage is way to high for a 40 multiplier so you need to either increase the multiplier or switch to negative offset. Also I would recommend keeping your temps below 85c during Prime 95

Thx for your info! Just checked my CPU-Z and when idle ( @ 1.6Ghz, it sais 1.000V, sometimes 1.008V )

The thing is i just didn't try to go with a higher multiplier, because i was scared of the high temps and VCore..
And that LLC you're talking about, i guess you mean the "Load-Line Calibration" to put this one on 4 or 5?

Well like i said in the post here above, i want to go with a higher multiplier (goal was 45, max 47), but got scared because of the temps and the high VCore.
If i will increase my multiplier, temps will go even higher, no?

So what is my best shot to try now? Increase the multiplier and see what it gives me?

I currently have my 3570k overclocked to 4.2ghz with an offset voltage of -.100. It has been very stable while my PC is running, idle and otherwise but now I'm having a problem turning on my PC after a shutdown. For the past few weeks I've had to press the case switch a number of times to turn my PC on. This morning, it wouldn't turn on at all. I ended up unplugging the PC and plugging it in again and it powered up on the first try. Could this problem be related to my overclock or is another piece of hardware failing? Thanks.
