yeh thats why i said to reset the bios and start again wink.gif also i was concerned about the turbo boost setting being disabled because i wasn't sure if that was reffering to intel turbo core or some bios overclocking utility. if turbo core on the cpu is disabled then that cpu is gonna max at 3.3ghz instead of 3.7ghz on stock settings. so dude make sure you haven't disabled the wrong thing thumb.gif

Fixed the timings smile.gif

good good! also set the voltage manually if you know what it should be, probably 1.5v. don't forget to set the command rate to if you know it, should be either 1N/1T or 2N/2T. thumb.gif

yeh im wondering what your idle temps are to? also did you try with the sides off the case? just wondering if you have bad airflow...

If I was right about disabling the 1 Second Overclock Genie then I win this thread.

60C isnt bad if you're using the stock cooler... replaced a stock intel cooler on a 2500k and the chip IDLED at 70C... over 80C under load... i think its a little crazy they even ship such crappy coolers.

That one must've been broken.. the chip's tjmax is 98, and throttles like hell in the low 90s, and my stock cooler kept mine in the 20s (idle of course) without being overclocked

i dunno... out of the 3 intel chips i've had recently, every single stock cooler it came with was absolute garbage... 70C+ idle and mid 80s under load.

I had always been told the stock coolers were bad, but damn!!

I can't compare stock cooler temps, since i never used mine, but on my other computer i had idles in the 45-55 range with the stock cooler but i believe you will just need to get an aftermarket cooler, i run my 2500k @ 4.5 ghz 24/7 with turbo boost disabled, and my load temps are just under 50 and it idles in the mid 20's (depends on if i have my room heater on or a window open). But if you get any decent after market air, or water cooler you should be able to overclock to at least 4.5 and keep your temperature under 50degree.

Here is a link to a few CPU coolers:

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=47090&vpn=NH%2DD14&manufacture=Noctua

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=61379&vpn=CWCH80&manufacture=Corsair&promoid=1230


Just remember to look at the height, width and depth dimensions and confirm that the cooler will fit in your case. Also buying better thermal paste then what is supplied with the cooler could be beneficial.

these are my temps on stock after disabling 1sec overclocking

jordanecmusic you were right, I disabled the 1sec overclock and it brought me down to stock speed and set my vcore to 1.700v

I've purchased http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003JZO176/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 to replace the stock cooler
