OC on stock Vcore

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hey guys.. alot of people on here helped me out alot and help me understand the basics of Overclocking' and i have one question that is bothering me and dont kno why its is...

Question 1, ive been having people telling me that my Vcore for some of my OCs were too high but i started at default and worked my way up, but alot of people been telling me that with the same CPU that they can get 3.6Ghz on stock vCore.. how is this possible, i was only able to get to 3.3 on stock vcore but no higher.. any ideas?

Its all about luck really. Some chips can just go higher than others with lower volts. Ive seen people with stock voltage get up to 4.0ghz on a 955, which is crazy because mine needed 1.45 for that. Some people cant even get to 4 ghz, no matter how good their cooling is.

All Cpu's are different. For example my 2600k requires a vcore of 1.387 to run at 4.5 ghz while others can run it at 1.28 vcore. It's just luck of the draw. I got a lame cpu while others may get the "golden chip." If you have a dud then just run it at what ever voltage you feel comfortable with.

ahh.. cause its from alot of people with the same chip as me the 1090t BE i guess.. so i gues my vcore is about right i guess

A lot of it boils down to the processor itself. No two ever seem to be alike. However, the motherboard does play a part in it as well. To me, overclocking is about getting something for nothing, and the journey getting there. I don't really care what I end up with, as long as I had some fun while doing it. After awhile, it can become an addiction, and you'll find yourself constantly going back and trying to get that next 100 mhz, as if you will magically come across a combo that will work.

The "Silicon lottery": some chips are just inherently better than others.

lol yeah i hear ya.. i think ill stick with my current settings until i get a new cpu fan

3.4ghz@1.362v
CPU/NB@2600mhz@1.275v
ram @ 1600mhz@1.60v@9-9-9-24

yeh man it all varies from person to person so dont worry. i cant get my 2500k past 4.1Ghz when these things normally at least go to 4.5Ghz. I probably need something like 1.5v to get 4.2Ghz stable when most people would be getting over 5Ghz on that voltage. its mostly down to the luck of the draw, this time i got very unlucky.

does it matterid my HT was and a the volts for it are on auto

ok so i was playing APB reloaded, and 1 min with in a match i get a BSOD BCCode x101 so instead of upping my vcore i upped my CPU/NB from 1.275v to 1.3v instead of my Vcore and so far it seem to go away.. does this make sense?

ohh and what would cause it to studder sometimes?. goes super smooth the studders i thought it was server lag on apb but wasnt' does it have to do with my ram settings?
