EDIT:

After you installed the i5 processor, did you trying re-installing the necessary drivers (after that, try the wireless card).

ALSO!!! Depending what you have in the first (or first two slots), do you have the 6pin motherboard connector attached too?
Yeah good point, didn't tought about that, but you don't need at least a 8x slot and u right about the sli, crossfire setups.
Pretty stupid actually, can't do 3x sli but u can triple xfire them... Weirdos

the only thing i can't find is how to set the leds to blink instead off always full on
i love ur background, skyline gtr r34, that car got such nice sound, there is an video of that car on youtube.
Why can't i achieve those settings without the mosfets alarm kicking in!

Hey erveryone. Quick question. This is my very first time with my computer which I have watercooled and first time I am overclocking. I just want to make sure I have everything down before attempting to do more:

I left everything as default, and I upped my multiplier to 40. Ran 20 passes through IBT, maxing temperatures out to 59 C.

I want to push the cpu a bit more so this is what I had gathered from some of the posts on this forum:

1. Update the bios to latest
2. Set vdroop to 50%
3. Put cpu speed to 4.5 ghz.
4. Boot into windows, run IBT and prime95
5. If it fails, push vdroop up a step and repeat. If it doesn't, push multiplier up by 1 and repeat.

My aim is to push this cpu upto 4.8 at least. Would just messing with the vdroop be okay or will I need to change the VCore from the hybrid settings as well? And what's a good increment to go up by?

Thank you.

Hi, new member , but a reader for quite a good time !

My config is :

- 2500 k with corsair H75
- MSI Mpower z77.
. g skill 12800 cl7 2 x 2
- gigabyte R9 270 X
-corsair hx 450


Overclocking has been VERY frustrating

Aimed for 4.6 GHZ, ram under XMP profile runing on auto. Passed 8 hours prime 95 blend with 90% of ram, 25 LinX iterations with 70ºc beeing my max temp. Next opening counter strike GO had a freeze with just 10 minutes of gaming. In this case vcore was fixed , 1.33 and all power saving features were turned on ( C1E, EIST), except C STATE, that was off.

I´m totaly lost, and apreciated some help wink.gif.

Thanks for your answer !

But I found out that my poblem was not hardware related, but due to counter strike global offensive problems

I realized that all my freezes occured during this very particular game and searched the web if anyone had troubles with it, and turns out a LOT of people, even with or without overclock are dealing with this issue.

I had already played several hours of other heavy games, browsed the web and so on, and until now everything looks ok wink.gif

When overclocking we naturally assume that any problems are related to it but in this particular case i'm almost sure that it wasn't.


About settings, PLL overvoltage is disabled, all power saving features are on, c states on auto, spread spectrum on, all voltages are on auto and offset in 100 %.

As you already should know, this board doesnt support offset voltage so the only way to decrease voltage while idling is to set the vcore to auto.

In my case, with 46 multi, the highest vcore i get, during prime and IBT is ~1.34 and a max temp of 61º, wich looks absolutely flawless to me.

Greetings
