Could Anyone Please Help?!?! Maximus IV Extreme Overclocking...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Alright i am looking to overclock my system & would love to get some help on doing this. Here are my specs of my system.

Systemboard: Maximus IV Extreme (Bios 2105)
Ram: Dominator GT 16GB (CMT8GX3M2A2000C9)
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40Ghz
PSU:1000W
Video Card: EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580

I would like to clock my CPU at 4.60Ghz & my ram at 2133

Asus has a Auto tune program but does not work lol. I am very very noob when it comes to overclocking. I can build them but cant really tweak it. Could anyone help

Thanks!

Overclock from the bios.

Set cpu vcore to +.100 offset and all other voltages manually to their defaults. Set the DDR2000 RAM to 1866 while overclocking the cpu. You want to know the source of the instability while tuning the system.


Start upping the multiplier one at a time until you cant get into windows, then back off one. Enable PLL overvoltage if you're going for 4.7GHz or more.

After bsoding/locking up and backing the multi off by one, load up prime95 and check your temps and stability under load. Decrease multi or increase voltage offset to hit desired temp/clock rate.

This should be fine unless you have a bad chip.

Change these:

Maximum Turbo Ratio Setting (Adjustable in OS): 46.

Memory Frequency: 2133Mhz

CPU Manual Voltage: 1.35

Then press F11 and save.


Run Prime95 Blend test, if it runs fine then fiddle around with the voltage until you can get it as low as possible whilst being stable.

However i would highly recommend reading up about though overclocking first.

I will go ahead and try this now!

Should i tweak the timing with the ram at all?

...and a little more advanced:

http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?2162-Overclocking-Using-Offset-Mode-for-CPU-Core-Voltage

http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?2163-Overview-of-Clock-Skew

And for Reference;
Quote:
BCLK
measured in MHz
Base Clock Increasing your base clock increases your CPU core clocks, memory speed, QPI frequency, and North Bridge Frequency
-Similar to the older FSB “Front Side Bus”
BCLK x CPU ratio = CPU frequency
Adjust the BCLK frequency to overclock the CPU speed!

-Multiplier is a ratio that determines the clock speed for the CPU based on the multiplication of the BCLK. For example, your CPU multiplier determines what your CPU core clock speed is using this formula: Base clock * multiplier
There are also multipliers for Memory frequency, QPI speed, and North Bridge (UCLK) frequency.

PCIE
measured in MHz
Periferal Connect Interface Express
-Video Graphics communication link
when overclocking, increasing the PCI-E clock can help with stability when above 200MHz BCLK

CPU Voltage
AKA -VCore this is your processor core voltage. Increasing this will supply your CPU cores the power they need to operate at higher frequencies.
Central Processing Unit
-Processor core voltage
DO NOT EXCEED 1.55v

IMC Voltage
"VTT" or "QPI" Increasing this will supply the power needed for the IMC (North Bridge) to operate at higher frequencies.
- L3 shared cache
- memory controller
- processor I/O power rail
Since memory controller frequency is dependent on BCLK, the higher the BCLK, the higher the IMC voltage required. DO NOT Exceed 1.45v

DRAM Voltage
DDR3 Random Access Memory
-Memory Voltage
Since DRAM speed is linked to the BCLK the higher the BCLK the higher the DRAM Voltage is needed

CPU PLL Voltage
PLL: Phase Locked Loop voltage
- Processor/IMC(Integrated Memory Controller)/other internal clock cycles
- Clock multiplying of processor is provided by an internal Phase Locked Loop
Does not have a significant effect on CPU Speed, -DO NOT Exceed 1.90v

PCH Voltage
Platform Controller Hub
- main I/O interface for CPU
- display connectivity
- Integrated Audio
- power management features
- Storage features
The higher the CPU frequency, the harder the I/O (input and output) has to work so there is higher power consumption and more heat is generated, raising the CPU temperature. The PCH voltage needs to be increased in order to stabilize I/O signaling. DO NOT EXCEED 1.25v

That should help...

First off you if you wanted to run 2133 you probably should've bought a 2133 kit.
Or researched a little more as to which kits reach 2133 easily.

With that said, run @ 1866 until you get up and running.
And are you running 16gb or 8gb?
If you're occupying all slots, you'll need a vccio bump, try 1.10v.
