BCLK, although "shouldn't by touched", speeds/slows everything in your system, if you changed it and ran into system stability then you might want to check your RAM/PCIe as they'll all get overclocked when you do BCLK overclocking.

Yep i know and the risks involved. I was just messing around and not really trying. Extreme overclocking do have to play with the bclk to go places. Old school overclocking risks are the same but sandy and ivy are really sensitive.

I'll have a proper attempt when i do have time as for now both rigs are wrapped up and thrown in storage till xmas

Yeah I figured you knew the risks, not my job to tell anyone anything lol - mainly just blabbering from what I know.

Oldschool had me laying lead on my old AMD Duron to get some unlocked bridge goodness, I miss those days.

Let us know your results, I don't see a sig rig, what kind of equipment you got on your mobo (ram, vid etc?).

I have many systems and update way too often to keep the sig rig updated.

http://www.overclock.net/t/541767/club-for-those-with-beastly-matx-itx-rigs/4710#post_18258920 for what I'm currently rocking


lattest addition to it.

I semi regretted selling my i5 2500k but I couldn't wait to ditch the zotac z68 and sold it as a package.


Mind you that none of these are actual gaming rigs in a sense but the gaming part will be virtualized. I'll be attempting some VT-d on one rig and VirtualGL on another and maybe have some FT/HA running too with a thin client (raspberry pi) as front end.

So one of the rigs will be running service oriented VMs and the other is normal user VMs

I want to know so much more about this.

Hey guys...new to the forum...first post here smile.gif

I was planning to get the ASrock Z77 mini ITX from amazon. I am from india, so wanted to know if its a good idea to do so. It costs me double in india, so was thinking of getting it from there.
Just a few questions..
1)I read on newegg, one guy had issues in overclocking his 2500k on this board. I too have a 2500k which overclocks to 5.2GHz on my sabertooth z77. The person on neweeg said it would just not overclock on this board.
2) Whats the chance of it being DOA? I mean, from your experience, what do you think are the odds of it being DOA?

thanks!

1: Overclock is the luck of draw but i dont see many issues with overclocking on it as proven by many other members in the forums, people who say that you cant overclock on the board are idiots and have no idea what they are talking about.
2: DOA? pretty standard these days and chances are very low, I have a board with a dodgy capacitor but the board will still function correctly and ASrock are pretty easy with their RMA as they offered to replace my board when I brought it up to them.

unless the board is faulty/defective, this board WILL overclock a 2500k, i have both.

thanks guys...ordered it from amazon... just hoping it not be DOA, I can live with any other issue tongue.gif

Will put it in a Bitfenix prodigy, will post pics of the system then smile.gif
