I can do 4.6GHz at 1.35v. I find this chip OC's just as well as my 2600k does and doesn't run hot at all with my Phanteks. 60c load at 4.3GHz and 66c Load at 4.6GHz.

Some make a big deal about it being semi locked but It hasn't limited most peoples OC's. Only drawback is no low idle volts with a strap over 100MHz.

Im waiting for my new cpu and I will have COOLER Noctua NH-D14 SE2011, so dont what I can expect.
+1 140mm front fan, 1x 120mm back, +1x bottom fan.

You should be able to get at very least 4.6ghz and probably higher, the D14 is a really good cooler. I'm pretty sure anyone getting 24/7 5ghz stable clocks are using a custom water setups though.

Yes, I keep reading about people saying how it's not as good an overclocker but when you look at the average 2600k overclocks you see only the luckiest people are able to get over 4.7 stable. Even then they typically have custom water loops to keep temps under control.
When I look at people's sig rigs I typically see overclocks between 4.3 and 4.5.

With the 3820 you get pretty much guaranteed 4.5ghz at low temps with the benefits of the X79 platform. I honestly can't wait for to get mine set up.

So, I am kinda new here, and just wanted to post my first overclock based off the information I have picked up on the forums and this particular thread. I ran an 8 hr blend torture test via prime95 after i reached my target OC. Just wanted to say thanks for all the good information in this thread thumb.gif

I just put together a Rampage IV and 3820 machine with a Noctura D14 SE2011.

When I used the ASUS basic overclocking config in the bios, the machine seemed to continuously click on/off and never posted. I'd end up having to reset the mobo and power down to get back into bios. Once I set it back to the basic config it would boot fine.

If I'm looking to try to OC to about 4.6 I should set the blk to 125 and the multiplier to 37?

I've been building my own systems for years but have never gotten into the OC thing, so any help would be appreciated.

That and about 1.35v(ish) possibly LLC High

That's what it takes for my chip at 4.6GHz

Congrats on the new Rig thumb.gif

I must be doing something wrong or I'm just clueless (or both), when I set it at that the 'target' mode on the bios says 5.5 ghz, which obviously isn't going to happen. Is it just reading wrong or are there settings I'm messing up?

Edit: Figured out my error. Its running fine at 4.6 right now, going to test it out a bit, thanks !

I got my new PC and I have 2 issues
I have Asus P9X79
1. I cant figure how to turn off speed stepping . I turned off enhanced intel speedstep technology in bios. But when I check it in CPUz still shows 389
So Im stucked.. any experiences?

2. I got 16GB RAM (RAM Corsair 4x4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 (CML16GX3M4A1600C9B) Vengeance Low Profile Blue)
But in Bios it says 1333Mhz also in Aida64 CPUz. When I checked components it is written 1600Mhz. Is it even possible?
MY bios is up to date
Thanks appreciated

I know ASUS has a software based BIOS utility. Is it possible that it's installed and it's overwriting your settings once Windows boots up?
