A Asus P67 Sabertooth, a i5 2500k, and a H100, Help Making 5GHz!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am in need of some guidance in overclocking on a P67 Saberthooth board, and a i5 2500k. I know how to OC the older 77 platform, but there's so many new things I have no idea where to start. I'm pretty sure my hardware is capable of 5Ghz, but I want it to be as stable as possible, and run cool enough I can keep it 24/7. I'm pretty much going back to the beginning on this so all help is welcome. I've got Skype, Xfire, and Steam if any of you would like to help me though a chat program. Thanks in advance!

Here is a template to follow. As for your Vcore, i don't know. You might need as much as 1.4v and higher!

Any options not listed, you LEAVE them alone!

AI overclock tuner @ Manual
BCLK/PCI-E @ 100.0
Turbo ratio @ By per core (cannot be adjusted in OS)
Set each to 50, 50, 50, 50
Internal PLL Overvoltage @ enabled
Memory freq @ Whatever it is!
Load-Line Calibration @ Ultra High
VRM Frequency @ Manual
VRM Fixed Frequency Mode @ 350
Phase Control @ Extreme
Duty control @ Extreme
CPU Current Capability @ 140%
CPU Voltage @ Possibly 1.4 to 1.45v. (5Ghz is not going to run cool or at safe voltage)
DRAM Frequency @ Whatever it is!
CPU PLL Volate @ 1.7v
CPU Spead Spectrum @ Enabled.

Do yourself a favour and stick wth around 4.5Ghz wink.gif If you do, keep the settings i've listed and set Vcore to around 1.37v and set multis to 45, test it.

Good luck, hope this helps.
P.S., I left the RAM parts blank because i don't know you RAM. You might wanna set the main timings manually, You WILL see the option mate!

Awesome! Thanks! I've been reading some of the other guides and I feel confident I'm ready to start.

Your welcome. remember, on 1155, you increase the multi, not the BLCK.

Yeah, that's what I've been reading. Waiting on BF3 to finish updating. Lol.

I've got it running 5.05Ghz at 1.43v. Running stress tests now. Seems to be stable. Will know in the morning.

What became of this? I assume the worst for a few reasons, the least of which is the lack of updates.

CPU is fine. I'm just busy all the time. It's 90% stable, one worker will die in Prime95 after 3 hours and I haven't had the time to mess with it. CPU hasn't seen higher than 75C and nothing higher than 1.46v.
