I just changed it from offset to fixed mode at 1.305v but under load it doesn't go past 1.248v while running prime for 30mins and been steady around 68C

I signed up to the forums to say thanks for this guide. I have never overclocked before and your explanation was very clear and thorough. Thanks to you I was able to get my 2500k up to 4.9Ghz biggrin.gif

Awesome! thumb.gif Thats exactly where I got to!

Boy, it took me a while to get registered with this forum. I'm visually impaired to a significant extent though I can still drive in daylight and I still work, but those garbled words kill me, finally had to resort to the audio which is not always easy.

Anyway, like the last poster, I signed up for this forum mostly to thank kennypark1337 for a terrific thread. I'm building my first ASRock, the z68 Extreme3. So far, I've only put in the memory, the i5 2500K, the CM Hyper 212, and posted into the "UEFI" (it will take a while to get used to that term). I've built a number of systems in the past, th is my first ASRock. My best current system is an i7 Lynfield OCed to 3.6GHz on air.

I just got the parts for this build on Tuesday and have been too busy with work to really play, but plan to move forward this weekend. However, already, I've been able to post at 4.2GHz without adjusting ANYTHING except the multiplier (or whatever it's called here)!. Amazing. I'm going to have some fun. Current memory is some 4g Vengeance Corsair 1600 I have that runs default 1333. I'm going to see how fast I can push the CPU multiplier with the memory set to 1600. I used to run it at 1640 on my i7 Lynfield system at 8-8-8-2x-something before I replaced it with 8g of memory.

I tend to look for the sweet spot when OCing, what does the chip and mobo give me without pushing too much voltage.

I'm open to suggestions on where to start tweaking cpu voltage with this. Anything in addition to the vcore? I'm still learning the UEFI and will take my time and learn it before trying anything rash.

Thanks.

For any moderate overclock, you only need to mess with vCore. when you get in the 4.7GHz+ range, you may need mess with other settings.

Okay, thanks. I'm not used to an OC of 1.4GHz as being called "moderate". redface.gif

Well I WAS going to do some homework, then head over to meet with my broker but this thread has just inspired me to go build some rigs instead mwahahaha!

Yeah, it is very weird but a 4.4GHz can be achieved without modifying vCore on 75% of i5-2500k's. Thats why this chip exploded in sales. It whooped EVERYTHING in performance, even AMD's new "Bulldozer" that came after it. Just destroyed everything.

Thanks for the response. Yes these chips do seem to be awesome.

But I'm puzzled. I'm running OCCT ver. 4.1, and I simply bumped the multiplier to40 (and I have my memory set to 1600), and did not touch anything else in the OC portion of the bios. Per OCCT, my vcore is 1.26. Is not the set vcore 1.10? If so, how did my vcore get up to 1.26? BTW, it's running in the low 50s. Thanks.

Update: I lowered the mult to the default of 33, and the vcore dropped to 1.17 in the bios. When I bumped it back up to 40 or 42, the vcore went back up to 1.26 to 1.28. So is there a setting that disengaged the vcore from the multiplier? They seem to be linked. Am I'm seeing this both in the bios and via OCCT.
