Looking for a nice GUIDE for OVERCLOCKING 2500K on a GIGABYTE board

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I have seen various guides around the net, but none of them on a proper gigabyte board.

Like Offset isnt called offset on gigabyte boards, but DVID and what not.
And gigabyte boards dont function like asus boards etc.

TDP isnt called TDP but called Turbo Something (Watt)
TDC isnt called TDC but Something Current (Amps)


For instance when I set voltage to normal and DVID to normal, and raise multiplier and reboot, my voltage is increased anyway. Instead of lying on stock volt.
So I cant find out how high I can go on a stock voltage, because it keep raising it automaticly (in bios) instead of staying at around 1.22 or whatever is stock. It goes up as high as 1.35 (thats with multiplier @ 40) and I have heard people with good chips reaching near 4ghz on stock voltage.

Oh and if I set stock voltage on the vcore it STILL WONT STICK, but keep fluctuating or going much higher than what is set.


As its a gigabyte board it also has LLC however I havent really grasped how it works other than trying to reduce vdroop..


Im Looking for a proper guide how to Overclock using TURBO and the DVID.
However with Turbo I can ONLY edit Core 1 - 3 (up to around 51 or 53) and not the fourth one, it automaticly goes back to auto and resets all the other cores to auto if I touch it.

Or a normal guide how to overclock properly using multiplier and voltage, while keeping Thermal Monitor and C1.


I saw one guide here on the forum but it was cluttered and not super easy to understand everything.

Scroll down the OP and you should find a guide for gigabyte users.

Which ever one works best is what I say. I just used a generic overclocking guide for me and then did googlemania till i found my answers to any questions or concerns.

I actually read that one while being in the Bios, on my SGS, but its too cluttered for my taste and the part he speak about TDP and the other, I was like, what is that? Does he mean the Turbo PoweR Limit in Watt? Does he mean the Current in Amps?

Question regarding voltage.

Vcore - do people mean LOAD vcore or IDLE vcore or BIOS vcore when speaking of Vcore?

I mean Intel is rather annoying to have such inconsistent vcore, where AMD has one which is basicly static (thus easier to oc)

Here's a start:

Reset to last optimal configuration.
Set Turbo to 45 (all 4).
Set max power and current to 300 (or max).
Set Vcore to normal.
Set DVID to +0.05V.
Set RAM to XMP (or its stated timings).
Test for stability.
Raise overclock/lower DVID until unstable.
Backtrack to the last stable configuration.

That's how I did it, all power saving options still on.

I cant touch the fourth Core in Turbo Multi as I said. It goes to Auto.
