i7-2600K CPU Degradation? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
That always happens for me when pushing my rig higher; tend to forget to change a setting back to where it was previously. I'm assuming you've revert any changes back to where they were with your "stable" 4.6Ghz?

Also, 1.85v PLL is the default I believe; at least it was on my board. You could lower your temps and your vcore by trying different combinations of VCCIO and PLL.

What error code are you getting when it crashes?

I'm still trying different things to see how high i can get but I haven't been able to reach back my 4.6GHz OC. I'm still sitting at 4.5Ghz @ 1.350v for now.

When it crashes it either a freeze or a 0000124 BSOD.

^this.. bump the vcore a couple notches

Freezes are usually a 124 as well, for that see here. Pretty much everything you would need to get around that pesky 124.

IME, I was running 4.7Ghz at 1.375/1.384 from pretty much day one when I got my chip 5 months ago. I did recently have to give it more vcore and readjust VCCIO/PLL, and the igpu current as the system became unstable, either due to a new graphics card or degradation/"burn-in", not sure which, but I did have to raise everything up a notch or two to get stable again.

Any idea why i'm not stable anymore @ 4.6 with 1.35v . I really don't think I pushed my chip that hard while trying to achieve a 5GHZ OC.
I may not be an expert but I still have a clue what I'm doing. I find it really funny that it still run perfectly fine 100mhz lower with the same vcore as before and with everything else on auto settings (jsut like before too)
Also, I know I MIGHT have a bad chip but even if I did, I can't imagine not being able to push my OC harder than this with one if not the best Z68 Overclocking board.
I must be doing somethign wrong ..
Could my 4 x 4GB DIMMS of RAM be holding me that much on my OC ?

Even the most conservative overclocker is comfortable using 1.35V 24/7. The CPU is always "degrading" but IMO you will never see a tangible amount at the voltages you are using.

Typically x124 BSOD is related to Vcore, but the 4 DIMMS can complicate things. You may want to try running Memtest, and if trying to hit 4.8- 5.0 GHz, try using only 2 DIMMS.
There are so many variables that could be causing your issue, but if you need a bump of Vcore at 4.6GHz to remain stable, I see no problem doing that. I think that your PLL is a little too high, and if you LOWER it you may actually gain a little stability, perhaps somewhere around 1.74-1.76...

I'll be testing things around in the upcoming days. I'm taking note of your advice and will let you know the results for sure.

Thanks!
