I'm giving my second rig to my little brother and I'd rather not pass on something that'll crap out when I can still swap it to something else. Thanks.

I've had the board for 2+ years now and I've been running mostly 4.7 oc at 1.35v. I turn off pc when I'm not using it and I usually play games and browse. I'm on the pc a lot and haven't had issues yet.

Hello and thanks for the guide (even that late wink.gif )
I hadn't gotten around messing with OCing until now so i would like your opinion on if my results are ok or if i should change anything.
First my setup:
Asrock Extreme3Gen3
I5-2500k
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600
Corsair TX650v2
Hyper 212EVO

Ambient temp: ~20C

First here are results while running prime95 (~its about after 2hours - I know i should run it for a lot longer for 100% safe results)..


Now the images from bios




Few things i'm thinking:
1) Is it weird or bad decision to set offset voltage at -0.040?should i go back to positive values?? i did try going for 4.4ghz with -0.040,it loaded but worker #4 never actually started doing anything in prime95 so i guess it was a no-go.
2)About the cpu load-line, I read a bit what you guys said but i just can't get how to set it. Based on what my bios shows and hwmonitor, is it ok at level3?
3)Long duration and short duration and primary plane, I've seen some various settings around.. does it actually matter? should i change it from what I set it (quite randomly to be honest) at 250/250/200?

W/e else you can mention please go ahead smile.gif
Thanks a lot in advance guys!

Your overclock looks fine. LLC3 is good. VCore is good. Negative offset is fine unless you start crashing while doing things like browsing the web, editing word documents, or other small tasks that are essentially too insignifigant to bring the processor out of idle.

Negative offset is fine. Due to the multiplier you are using, Negative offset is you only option. If you were using a positive offset such as +0.005, your full load vcore would be closer to 1.3v for a 4.3ghz OC.

FYI you can take bios screen shots if you format a Flash drive in FAT32, reboot into bios and press F12. This way you do not have to use a digital camera

2 Years on and still relevant! Thanks for the post, it helped a lot!

I just have one major problem:

I am running an Intel Xeon E5 2680 CPU on an Asus P9X79 WS motherboard and I tried to overclock in the BIOS and it would not allow me to set the multiplier higher than 27 (2.7Ghz is the CPU speed), soooo... I'm brand new to overclocking, but shouldn't I be able to ask the CPU to exceed it's specs? Why would it not allow me to set the multiplier above 27?

I followed all the steps, did everything right but the thing will not let me overclock!

I am trying to render particles in 3ds Max and I keep maxing out my CPU and then 3ds Max crashes. I really need the extra boost of power, to at least 3.5Ghz...

Please help me out here!

Thanks!
