Want to OC a 2700k on a Asus Extreme Z

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I am putting the final touches on my rig hardware-wise and figure its time to see what this thing can really do. I tried searching for a good thread so i wouldnt have to start a new one but they all seemed incomplete or not quite the same as my setup.

Setup:
2700k
Asus maximus Iv extreme z
corsair h100 push/pull
Corsair Dominator Gt 1866 ram (4gb x 2)
quad sli gtx590's
silent pro gold 1200w psu
samsung 7200rpm 1 tb
corsair force gt 240gb ssd
lots of fans and other stuff...

The only thing i know about overclocking is that the asus auto tuning function sucks. it only goes to 4.7, works for a while then out of the blue will crash like crazy.

So where do we start? biggrin.gif

What monitor are you using for those 2 590s? (just wondering...)
You should take a look at this first, should give you the basics: http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet

Right now just a ASUS VE247H 23.6" LED and a 42" Vizio, but i would like to try some 3d gaming when budget allows (not anytime soon lol, i only upgrade my computer when i get tax returns).

Thanks for the thread ill read through it and see where that gets me. Im sure i will still have a lot of questions. I build low-end workstations all day, this is the first time i have really started to get into the more serious machines. Thanks again.

Hey there, couple of things.
First you should really use another software to monitor your temps, like real temp or core temp, they are more reliable and they have the temp of each core, also saving the max/min temp so you can get a good read while playing, for example. The h100 is a hell of a cooler and it should be able to keep up with that OC, however when you are trying to get a 24/7 oc, you should try to keep the temps under load (p95) on the high 70s, low 80s top.
The other thing is going foward, if you got it stable, it's time to find the lowest possible vcore where your OC will stay stable, it's when you incrementally decrease the vcore and stress test it.

it's a good start to get a stable 4.8ghz oc up and running, if you are satisfied with that clock you just need to fine tune. I'm not familiar with the 2700k specs, so another member can comment on other configs like LLC and such.

2+ hours in it looks good so far. If it goes 12 hours no problem, i should lower my vcore and test again until it fails? What kind of increments should i use to decrease? What would be a good vcore to shoot for? thanks.
