Hi i have a 3930K with a X79 Extreme4 , i dont understand all the bios overclocking options is there a guide that explain to me how they work?

i know this is for z77 and z87 but the bios is pretty much the same can i get some help overclocking a 3930K at least a 4.4? no need more than that
reviews on the Extreme4 indicate that i cant go beyond 4.6ghz.

thanks

The BIOS layout is similar, but the settings are completely different. 2011 and 1155 overclock completely differently.

What do you guys think of ASRock's optimized OC presets? (Kinda OT, because I'm running a Haswell) I'm using the turbo 4.2GHz atm and getting rock-solid stability, but I'm a totsl noob when it comes to voltages and such.

Are these presets safe, or do they skyrocket my voltages to unnecessary amounts? Getting about 1.160 Vcore at full-load (4.2GHz)

1.160 is plenty safe for Haswell, but auto-overclock is never a good idea. Look for a Haswell guide and get familiar with your BIIOS and processors settings.

Hi

CPU: 3930K
MB: ASRock X79 Extreme4
Mem: Corsair 8GB 1600

i was trying to overclock my 3930K my original goal is 4.4GHZ, but i dont have any success on doing so ... would like to know what i am doing wrong or missing?
here is a picture running Cinebench



and the CPU downclock by it self to 3.6Ghz or 3.5Ghz i dont know why is doing that when i have voltage fixed. mad.gif


here i have the setting iv been working on... i got an idea how to setup this from OCN SB-E Overclocking Guide.

long duration maintained, take it off of 10 (seconds) and put it on auto. It is the duration of your turbo, and you have it set to 10 seconds.

Edit:

Dont use ez oc - auto

Why disable the C-States when using offset mode? That makes no sense.

There have been cases where this is the culprit for instability when OCing, that's why they recommend to disable it.

In my case, after finding stability with the C states off I tried using C1 and it's fine. I didn't try the deeper sleep states like C6 though.

No, I get that, it's just that he has them enabled for fixed mode when the whole point of fixed mode is getting rid of any power saving.

Cool! Thanks for clarifying! You mentioned offset instead of fixed mode in the original post that's why I said it.

I definitely agree that it is moot to set it up that way when using fixed mode!
