Ivy really has a limit in overclocking to me, the temps are what limits you and sometimes, you can't get a good vcore for clocks you think it should be able to run at that vcore.

Thinking I might just try 1.25v and see if that is stable. Can always adjust it downwards bit by bit once I've found a good stable point.
As an aside, when running @4.5GHz, can I simply pop my RAM up to it's rated 1866MHz with it's timings as found in SPD or will this cause instability?

Shouldn't cause any instability if it's the designated speed at certain timings and voltages. If it does cause a problem, call the company and request an RMA. My RAM are Corsair Vengeance and I RMA'd them because they can't even run stock anymore. I'm not sure why. I already have a buyer that wants it since it's going to be new. smile.gif Some nice Samsung or GSkill RAM for me now. smile.gif

Whoop!
Managed an hour running @ 4.5GHz with 1.23 - 1.24v and PLL set to 1.7.
Also pushed the RAM up to it's rated speed and it seems to be holding.
A quick (and most likely silly) question, if I test and find this to be stable and then attempt to OC further is it safe to fall back to these settings without re-testing? I assume once a certain speed/voltage is proven stable as long as the settings are the same it should still be stable?

To me, it is stable. I'm not sure if others disagree, but why wouldn't it? Stock are fail-safe settings and why after an overclock can we go back to that?

The answer is yes. It is safe forever.

I just hope no one ever fries their chip. It's not a fun experience. Why am I not getting alerts in my Recent Activity for this thread anymore? It's annoying.

Can someone give me some advice? Im new to oc'ing and dont really know what im doing, i oc'ed to 4.2ghz with stock voltage at 1.105 and all seems good with temps around the low 70's. This is in asus ai suite 2 btw, havent tried bios oc'ing yet. Is it easier in the bios? As with ai suite you have to select your profile every boot.

I also tried a 4.5ghz at 1.19v but only tried prime for 10mins so dont know how stable it is, prime does crash at 1.17v though. Temps at 4.5 get to 80c, is that bad? The safe temp on these ivys is 104c isnt it?

Any general tips for a oc newbie?

General Tips:

OC with BIOS - You generally get lower voltages and better overall OC performance.
Temps when stress-testing should be at a max of 95C.
Temps during average load (what you do everyday) max of 85C.

Ok, here. To me, all you have to do is run prime95 for 12 hours and if it passes with no errors in prime95 or BSOD, then you are good. I don't see the point in nitpicking every small thing because I will tell you that I get Windows Errors in Event Viewer even on stock and that is "supposedly" fail-safe.

Right, yeah agree with that but will overclocking shorten a cpu's life span? Surely not if you dont even raise the voltage from stock like i'll do with my 4.2 oc providing its stable.
