Ivy Bridge Overclocking Guide ► Asus Motherboards - Page 689

pretty sure based on my experience:

crashing/not loading windows took a hefty bump - freezing prime meant i was getting close - workers stopped in prime meant closer. sometimes that was an SSA (system agent - IMC) increase..

freezing prime was first for me, then it was just random if i could get into windows

Bump it up to 1.30v. If it still doesn't work, contemplate whether you really need that extra power. Remember that for IB-chips, the biggest performance gains stop after 4.5GHz. The 4.5GHz was the sweet spot for most chips, and some varying lower and higher.

I wonder can my chip realy be that bad. I can't get past 4.2GHz even with 1.35v. It always get BSOD 0x00000101 or 0x00000124.

My motherboard is: Asus P8Z77-V LX
Settings as i remember are:

AI Overclock Tuner - Manual
BCLK/PEG frequency - 100
Turbo Ratio - By All Cores
EPU Power Saving Mode - Disable
VRM Frequency - Manual and 350
CPU Current Capability - 120%
CPU PLL Overvoltage - (Disabled or enabled, does not make any difference)
Load-Line Calibration - Ultra High
Phase Control and Duty Control - Both -> Extreme

Voltages

CPU Voltage - manual 1.25v - 1.30v
DRAM Voltage - stock 1.50v
VCCSA - Auto
VCCIO - Auto
CPU PLL Voltage - Auto or 1.80v
PCH Voltage - Auto
CPU Spread Spectrum - disabled or enabled, does not make any difference

CPU configurations

CPU Ratio - Auto
Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor - disabled
Active Processor Cores - All
Limit CPUID Maximum - Disabled
Execute Disable Bit - Enabled
Intel Virtualization Technology - disabled
Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology - Enabled
Turbo Mode - Enabled
CPU C1E - Enabled/Auto
CPU C3 Report - Auto
CPU C6 Report - Auto

changing C-states can't make any difference

I have run MEMTEST86 over night and it shows no errors. My power suppsy should be fine, model is XFX 550 Core Edition. My computer is stable at stock locks, but even small OC is almost impossible.

Sorry my bad english.

No worries about the English. I did some translating for some International students last year so I completely understand when English isn't a person's native tongue. If you don't mind, what time zone are you in?

Currently, I'm on a reading week break from school so until the end of this week, I'm free from school work to a certain extent. I do not mind setting up a time one of these days to do some Skype IM or call to get your OC sorted out for you.

Now, if that's not possible for you, I can try to help you as best as I can here.

For the sake of your overclock, set the C-states to what's shown in the guide. This is to minimize the external effects on the overclock so we can deductively figure out what's causing the instability.

Listing out my assumptions:
1. Your system can be run by your power supply without any problem. I do not know what graphics card you have and therefore I will assume your PSU can handle running the PC with an overclock.
2. Your PC is 100% stable without any overclock settings. I will assume that your PC does not crash and is completely stable when none of your PC's components are overclocked.

DO NOT OVERCLOCK MULTIPLE COMPONENTS WHEN TESTING STABILITY OF ANOTHER COMPONENT!
If your memory/GPU is overclocked, change it back to stock speeds/timings.

This is what I want you to do:
Set all settings in your BIOS to what is shown in the guide.
Set DRAM Voltage to 1.60v (This is 100% acceptable, I have ran my RAM with 1.65v for the last few years since I made this guide and no problem whatsoever, we will change this back after everything is set)
Set C-state C1E to Enabled
Set C-states (C3,C6) to Disabled
Set CPU PLL Overvoltage to Enabled

Boot into Windows and run Prime95 for 1 - 2 hours using Blend (or Custom Blend with proper memory size).

If no problems are found and the PC is stable, we can begin overclocking the CPU.

Steps:
Set multiplier to 42 (Overclock CPU to 4.2GHz)
Set CPU voltage (vcore) to 1.3v
Boot into Windows and run Prime95 for 1 - 2 hours using Blend

If it works, bump down voltage 2 notches and test using Prime95 for 1 - 2 hours.
Repeat bumping down voltage and running Prime95 for 1 - 2 hours UNTIL unstable.
Once unstable, bump up voltage 2 notches and run Prime95 for 12 hours.
If error occurs, bump up voltage 1 notch until stable for 12 hours running Prime95.

If you have any questions or concerns, post here and I will get back to you as soon as I am available!
This includes if you have any issues in my directions (ie understanding). I will explain to you in a different way until you can understand.

Remember, overclocking is all about patience. I do not mind helping anyone out when it comes to this as long as I have time. Just ask questions because asking questions is better than damaging your CPU/PC. If I don't answer, there are plenty of knowledgeable people in this forum that is always willing to help out!

Thanks for helping me!

I tested your settings and Prime Blend test crashes after 20 min. My power supply should be good enough, I already tested my system with another PSU with same results. GPU is stock low power 750 Ti without OC:s.

I am starting to wonder if my motherboard is quilty one. I have noticed for a while that it makes double post on cold boot, but i did not paid attention until now since it is not first mobo what does that. Maybe some VRM problem then?

Still stranges thing is that my system is 110% stable even with prime when CPU is stock settings.
I quess i'm conna borrow some differend RAM sticks for my friend and see does it makes any difference.

Ok, that sounds a bit strange.

I'd definitely recommend trying out different RAM sticks, however, if your PC is stable without an overclock, it seems like a steep jump to say it's the RAM.

It might be your motherboard and CPU. Hopefully it is the RAM, but if not, a new chip or mobo might be needed.

I want to add some corrections. I havent posted here in quite a while but I was one of the 1st here to do an Ivy Bridge DIE removal. One of the first if not 1st to fry an IB on water. I also have a build thread of this with pics. I am not trying to brag only giving credibility to my corrections because this is a major thread with multiple contributers.


CPU Spread Sectrum Enabled (only if bclk is staying at 100 which is typical, this prevents the whole system locking up instead of only an app crashing)
Internal PLL Overvoltage disabled
Dram phase control Extreme
Dram thermal control 120

OP you can check my post here:

Hey all I was just recently directed to this thread. I have not read all the guides on the first page yet because I wanted to see if there was anything new that changed and let you all know my issue.
FYI, My system is in my sig.
I am on windows 10 64 bit

My cpu is watercoooled by a Swiftech H240-X but I will be adding a XPSC water block set to the loop soon enough to help cool the MB. I may also be getting the H320-X2 prestige AIO and swap out my other AIO.

I can get my 4930k up to 4.3 ghz and it is pretty stable (no crashes or errors of any kind) but my vcore is at 1.38.
If I try 4.4 ghz I get a BSOD within 20mins on OCCT and probably less than that if I tried prime95.

I have had some people help me on the RIVBE owners club thread but it seems I have lost the silicon lottery with this chip.

But one of the things I noticed when someone else posted the screenshots of their BIOS is they had different settings in their BIOS like the VCSSA and some others. I once tried setting those differently one by one but it didn't work out so I assume I did something wrong.

Any help would be appreciated or should I just go with getting a replacement chip and hoping for at least an average 4930k overclocker.....

Onto why I'm here(back):

Somewhere back in late '13 I attempted my first i5-3570k OC adventure and failed horribly, some how added too much voltage to the chip and had to get another one, I could never get a stable overclock because I run 4x8GB DDR3-1333 RAM.
(http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/KHX1600C10D3B1K2_16G.pdf)

And I kept reading that OC'ing with 4 sticks is a lot harder than just 2. so I quit trying after the fail and financial setback.

has anyone successfully OC'd their SB/IB to at least 4.3/4.5 with 4 sticks?
Seeing as how Going IB to Skylake really isnt beneficially, was thinking of taking a crack at OC'ing again, but would really love it if someone had better tips on my..."Different" scenario I really dont want to have to pull out 2 of the RAM modules to make it "easier" , feels like wasting money.
