Problem Overclocking

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I there seems to be a problem with either me, or something in my computer.

I am not able to overclock my Core i7 2600k to 4.8GHz on my Asus P8P67 PRO mobo. After I set the cpu to 4.8 in the bios and restart my system, Windows and Linux both freeze at startup.

I have tried everything I know from upping the voltage to changing some bios settings. I have 8GB of Corsair vengeance at 1600, and I
tried changing the timings a few times with no luck. I have liquid cooling so heat's not a problem.

Anyone have any clue what's wrong here?

your chip may be able to handle it. Have you looked at the clubs on OCN to help trouble shoot your issues?
Small wonder.

I know my chip can handle it, people overclocked it to 5GHz.

I have Windows 7 Professional with 1.4 V.

I would suggest not messing with your RAM timings until you get stable.

You "might" need more vcore.

Not all CPUs ate the same.

What is the highest stable speed you gave gotten? What are your temps at that speed?

Are you following a tutorial? (I used one that really helped. I will try to find it if you need.)

The highest stable I've gotten is 4.6. Temps: 20C at idle and no more than 65C under heavy load.

I was thinking more vcore too. maybe 1.48?

However if I turn on the PLL overvoltage or put too muck voltage, i get a warning in when i run stress tests.

mx have a look at this guide I did here mate - http://www.overclock.net/t/1100100/info-intel-2500k-2600k-overclocking-tips

Start from beginning of that and work your way up. Depending on what happens when your system fails, its probably either not enough vcore.

It worked!

I managed to boot into Windows and am running a stable 4.8GHz with Vcore at 4.41 and PLL overvoltage on.
Under full CPU stress in Prime 95 i got 68C max temp, is that resonable?

Thanks
