OC Help- 2600k Asrock E3G3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys/girls.

I have read a fair share of the Asrock guides here and they have helped me a bit.
However some things have baffled me a bit as I had a Gigabyte board before I replaced with the Asrock.

Firstly my goal is a stable 4.5GHZ overclock, something I have easily reached with the Gigabyte.
However with the Gigabyte I had 10 LLC settings and my Vcore was set at 1.280V.

Now Im having problems getting the right voltage combination with my Asrock.

I can have Voltage fixed or in offset mode, and I have 5 LLC settings.

With my Gigabyte I started at 1.320V and worked my way down in voltage until unstable and this made me find the sweet spot. What would be the best offsett and LLC to start with and do I work my way down ?

Is it okay to set my RAM to the XMP since it supports it? Any and all info( even though so abundantly available) will be much appreciated.

Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3 Z68
Gskill 8GB Sniper 1.5V CL9 9-9-9-24
Noctua D14 with Antec Nano7 TP
Corsair AX850W PSU


**EDIT I tried a 0.005 offset at LLC 2 and got a BSOD101 after 25mins on the blend test Prime. I figure Im close to being stable but just need some advice. Temps are all between 55c and 61c and HT is enabled.thumb.gif

XMP is fine, set your LLC high to begin with, and back it down once stability is found. You can also play with vcore as well, leaving LLC the same. You should be fine at 1.3v (around) and middle of the road LLC (like level 3)... it is different for everyone, but this is a decent starting point. Good luck!


Edit: Offset depends on VID and this is different for every chip.
