I5-2500k - Asus p8z68 m-pro - First overclock help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, just built my first computer!

I overclocked it using the multiplier option set to x45. Everything else is set to auto except EPU power save and pll over voltage are off (pll is disabled to fix sleep mode). Everything seems fine, passed intel burn test on standard for 50 times. The only thing that bugs me is the voltage, it's at like 1.428 idle and 1.368 under load. (all voltages are set to AUTO). Oh and the temps idle are about 30 degrees Celsius and 63-69 degrees celcius under load.

Specs...
Mobo Asus P8Z68 M-Pro
Processor: intel i5 2500k
Ram: Corsair vengeance 16 gb (4x4gb) ddr3 1600mhz
Cooling: Corsair H80

Here are some pictures in no specific oreder: http://imgur.com/a/qaS6O

I will upload images tomorrow as I am on my iPod right now. If you have any tips that would be great!

Thanks,
Fletch

Run Prime95 for 8-12 hours and see what happens. If you're really concerned about the voltage being that high, manually do it. I have my 2500k overclocked to 4.5ghz @ 1.35v, which is pretty decent. You can probably go much higher with that voltage.

In my opinion, as long as you stay at around 25-35c idle and 55-65c full load, you're fine. It really all depends on what your cooler can do. An H80 does the job. I would just recommend doing all manual stuff, because you would be surprised how easy it is! smile.gif

Hmm I'll mess more around with that tomorrow,when I tried today I got a bsod error 124 and a 101 after reboot so I just set it back to auto. Also there is no manual mode just an of ate mode? That's what I'm confused about tongue.gif

Anyhow thanks for the reply, also wats better prime 95 or intel burn test? I'll check back tomorrow and I'll post me pics smile.gif

There must be a manual way of setting your voltages. As for the programs, both are great. However, Prime95 is a test for 100% stability and uses your ram and cpu to extreme loads. I think IBT is just something for short stress testing (I'm not too sure; never used it) Send me some pictures of your BIOS to my inbox and I'll be more than happy to help out!

im pretty sure you have the same bios as I do with the p8z68 v gen 3. Under AI tweaker you will find the CPU voltages and you will be able to set it to manual then type in your own voltage. I am running my 2600k @ 4.7Ghz with 1.35 volts and it is totally safe. Post back if yous till cant find the setting.

Thanks for the replys I'll post the pics aft school. I also noticed before I overclocked my processor would drop down to x16 while idle (the voltage would also drop) then shoot up to its stock turbo which was x37(the voltage would increase) but now after the overclock it just stays at x45 any ideas?

I have z68 pro3 gen3 and it doesnt have manual vcore-setup either :/ And I have the latest bios-version.

So currently I am running @ 4,4ghz using offset-voltage and under full load vcore is around 1,320 max 1,328.

So it seems like there are some boards which dont have manual vcore setup...

What is your offset at? I never figured out the way this offset thing works.

Well auto vcore @4,4ghz was giving me 1,28v which passed 10rounds of IBT on very high settings but failed when running custom prime (1344/1792FFT). So I raised offset-voltage to +0,05v, vcore pumped up to 1,32v and it passed 20mins of 1344 and 20mins of 1792FFT with 95% of memory used with no errors/warnings.

I am still learning though and cant really give you an explanation of how offset works, sorry smile.gif
