Hi all,

I've been having a big problem getting good clocks with this 2500k and Gene-Z. Right now it's running at 4.6GHz and 1.4 volts, and is in no way stable, crashing only after 5 minutes in p95. I'm using a Hyper 212 Plus for cooling. It had been running at ~88C on two of the cores, and then the other two were at 79C. I have tried reseating the heatsink, and even lapped the heatsink, and while this did bring temperatures down by about 6 degrees, there was still a big temperature gap between Cores 0 and 3 (mid-high 70s) and Cores 1 and 2 (84C). Every time I try to boot into prime and it crashes, it gives me a 101 code, meaning I need to add more voltage, I believe. Would fiddling with the PLL voltage help this predicament I'm in? Is this simply a lousy board/2500k? Could I be having the wrong settings somewhere? In any case, I appreciate any help or feedback I may receive.

Thanks! thumb.gif
