On the MPower, putting the sound card in the bottom x1 slot will definitely block the GPU fan. The bottom slot won't be a bad idea if liquid cooling, which I plan to do much later with my build in progress.

Firstly Hi to everyone,

This is my problem. I am running a 2600k on the Mpower Z77 and I cannot get it stable past 4.2. I have read post after post, tried so many different settings combinations, voltages, 3 different makes of mem all at stock, 2 different PSU's (just to rule out bad rails) etc and no joy. Anything past 4.2 and Prime / Intel Burn test crash out immediately. I can use the Mobo OC button, cpu at 4.2 and voltage at 1.352 (fluctuating to 1.344 as I type this according to CPUID). Now If I attempt to overclock the cpu myself to 4.2 I can but with no less voltage than 1.35. Anything less and it's a no go. At 4.4 my rig blue screens immediately without a minimum voltage of 1.42 but then bombs out as soon as I start prime or Intel Burn Test. I have given into the fact my 2600k is just not an Overclocker. I have tried up to 1.44 but to go even higher when I see others at 1.35 can;t be a viable option can it?

I would be happy to receive any advice on this as my next step is to replace the chip with a 3570k.

there is nothing you can do if you got a "bad" chip. either get a new one or 3570k but at the end it all comes down to luck.

It does seem that way. I am by no means an expert at this but I have had 2 enthusiast friends also take a look and it isn't an over ambitious overclock and they both own rigs with similar specs, overclocked and they are left scratching their heads with this. In a way 4.2 is still a good clock compared to the stock speeds but when you know so many with reach 4.6, some even higher it's frustrating to say the least :-)

@alextheguy do you suggest try 1.35 for a 4.5 to start with? On my way home from work but will try your settings as soon as I get home. Will be interesting to see if it makes a difference as I'm ready to say good bye to my 2600k with its current performance redface.gif)

 I get 9C from moving bclk with chipset voltage too low.. try moving chipset voltage to 1.066v and see if that corrects the POST issue.

Ok guys I need some help badly!!!

I finally got the nerve up to overclock on this board and I really don't think i've done it correctly.

here's the situation:

trying to run between a 4.0 and 4.2 ghz clock. I want to stay at or barely above stock voltage ( maybe even under volt if I can). My cooling is the NH-d14 (hence I don't want to go much higher for a 24/7 overclock

ISSUES:

I followed nagles and a few others setting advice on here and got the rig up to 4.2 but its got weird issues I want yall to help me with/ know what to do because I'm new to it and don't understand what i'm doing wrong

1. The ram voltage displays as 1.648 ?? in bios (or something like that) my ram is only 1.5 volt. So is this safe?

2. My clock speeds once booted as seen through task manager fluctuates from 4+ down to maybe below 3 ghz when at idle, and when running prime95 ive never seen it show higher than 4.13 ghz (when set to 4.2 in bios)

3. the voltage fluctuates wildly.....from like .992 to 1.260 V. How do I stop this? I want to set my voltage permanent. does this board not allow this?

-ive tried vdroop on 100% and it did nothing to stop it

-I want to set the volts in the bios but it wont let me (excpet within the oc genie menu) problem is how do you apply the oc genie settings? you can do it in os, but thats bad. Do i set my oc genie settings and then open the case up while on and hit 0c genie button? or boot off and hit the button? I just really don't get how these settings are applied even though i set them


So please take a look at the pics below of my settings and let me know what im doing wrong because i relaly dont get what things are being applied when i leave bios or how to fix my issues. I've read almost every post in this thread but still obviously don't understand.










Summary:

I don't feel safe running the ram at high volts, or cpu voltage fluctuating so much, and i want the cpu to be at 4.2 constant and not throttle. just trying to set a decent oc for 24/7 with air cooling i have and not run my chip into the ground. Please help if you have any firm insight on what i need to do, I promise i will be very appreciative with the rep button! and I apologize for sounding like such a noob but the settings on this board confuse me as compared to what ive read about other brands bios
