ok thanks.
just one other thing i cant find the turbo boost
it says Set the Turbo Boost to +0.004v. Sorry its my first time over clocking

It's under turbo voltage.

You might want to simply spend time going through all the pages of your bios with your manual next to you and learn where stuff is and what the stuff does. Full disclosure: I'm still not sure what some of the settings on my mobo do. Also, UEFI looked quite a bit different to me (compared to the traditional bios), and the first thing I did was simply explore everything in the bios and learn what was what and where it was.. I've been building systems for 10 years, and exploring the bios/UEFI is still one of the first things I do. I recall the old DFI bioses had a gazillion settings. These ASRocks are pretty straight-forward, but the presentation is different (especially boot order) and it takes a while to lean where stuff is.

My two cents.

Man this is way different than a DFI OC!
Anyways I followed the "guide" but I can't get CPUZ or windows to show the OC. It only shows the core speed of 3.4ghz and not the setting of 4.0ghz. The asrock program however does show it at 4000mhz. Why is there a difference?

EDIT: have OCCT installed. It also said my core cpu was 1600 and
Original was 3400 with a-OC% of 54%. Seems weird. I ran the program and it failed after a few seconds (@4.4ghz) and 2 minutes (@4.0ghz). Temps got above 85°C. That cant be right. I have something off. First plan is to re do the thermal paste. After that...maybe run it stock....

Hello, would my temp go down if I decrease my x44 multiplier with the same offset(+0.005) and turbo voltage(+0.004)? It seems 1 thread of 2600k is failing in prime95. I suspect it has something to do with temps. One core max at 73c. That's the only thing I can read from the softwares that's changed. Core Voltage stayed around 1.28v with 1.31max. Thank you

Im sure this has already been answered but I cannot seem to find it. I have the ASRock z68 Extreme3 Gen 3 with bios version p2.10. My processor is the sandy bridge i5 2500k / G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 1600 / and OS Windows 7 64bit. I want the processor to run full time at the fixed stock speed of 3.3Ghz, with no flucuations in the multiplier/core speed in windows. What are the correct bios settings to allow this?

Right now the mutliplier flucuates between x 16 and x 33 while in the OS. I am not concerned with power consumption as I will have the system automatically power down or go into sleep mode when not in use.

I appreciate all responses and again I apologize if this has already been covered.
Thanks

Try using fixed vCore and disabling Intel Speedstep and Turbo Voltage.

I have a handful of questions about the Z77 Pro4-M paired up with my 3570k that I hope someone could help me with. biggrin.gif

First off ; my board has no "fixed" voltage option. All it has is auto and off-set. Secondly, if I put in a multiplier value by hand (instead of "auto") the Turbo option re-appears after being disabled. I can not even select it to disable it and so I changed the the turbo voltage from "auto" to 0.04v.

After reading this guide I think I am on the right track on how to OC my processor but a few things still confuse me (having come off the i7 920 / X58). This guide says that I should start out with an offset voltage of "-0.005v" and work my way down when trying to find the best / lowest voltage. Currently I am trying to find my start point for a 4.1GHz OC. I have my offset at -0.105 and my turbo voltage set to 0.04v since I have C1E and EIST enabled and this guide said that the turbo voltage only effects the voltage at MAX speed. Is this correct and is what I am doing safe/good?

If so, should I continue to lower the offset voltage, effectively reducing the amount of voltage required to run at 1.6GHz, while increasing the turbo volts? I do not know why, but I feel this would end up being a very bad thing - what with the processor jumping up from 0.80v @ 1.6GHz to 1.17v @ 4.1GHz on a daily basis. Come to think of it, I do not recall ever seeing anyone with with a screen shot posted of their clocks / temps / voltage where the idle 1.6GHz was lower than 0.9xx.

Bump.

Have you tried doing any other CPU intensive task? Like gaming, renicoding, or even watching a video?

Make sure that the current limits are set to max (type in 3000 and press enter).

This is normal, but I wouldn't send the offset into the negative too much. The reason is that stock and below (33 and less) like idle (which the offset affects), Intel has already set the required voltage to the chip for all those multipliers. So make sure that you don't BSOD during idle states.

The CPU doesn't care what voltage changes it does (like .8 to 1.2), but what does affect it is too low/high voltages during running state. Too high and you fry it, too low and you BSOD.

I'm going to change the Undervolting section to reflect this. I don't think undervolting the offset is a good idea. I think its much better to leave it at +0.005v and mess with turbo to find a good clock at above x33, or if you REALLY want to save power, leave it at x33 and try and decrease turbo maybe.

As it stands with lowest positive setting with offset, you should get around 1.00v at idle and like 1.2v to 1.3v based on what multiplier you select. Those are really low numbers. Like almost max power saving.




Side note: Please ask questions in this thread and don't PM. I am one person and can get really busy. I may show up online but am only reading a few threads or my tab is just open on this website and I'm afk. By posting in here, you open your questions to be answered by multiple people (not just me), and I always check this thread so I may eventually answer you. TY All for taking the time and effort to read my guide! thumb.gif
