OC i7 2600k with ASRock Z68 Professional Gen 3 "Fata1ity"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

So I read through many threads in regards to OCing my chip but all those posts dealt with changing settings so you can change the volts in order to get the highest stable clock. I do not want to play with the voltage at all nor do I want the highest possible clock speed. My main goal here is to get a mild OC on my chip without playing with any voltage settings. That being said, what I should enable/disable in my bios settings to achieve my mild OC? I know some stuff must be disabled and was wondering what exactly those should be? My setup can be found in my sig. Thanks and rep will be given for those who help.


Thanks

Define mild. If you want 4.2, you can probably just change one setting in the BIOS - the turbo multiplier to 42. That'll get you started, and then you can see what the temps and voltage are at that point, and then decide if you want to push it higher. But for that chip you should be able to do 4.2 with everything else at default without any trouble.

There are some other settings you can fool with, but about the only other ones you should look at initially would be the memory speed (to make sure it is set for your RAM) and then the power saving settings (EIST, C1E, C3, C6) which may default to disabled when you overclock the board. If the chip isn't downclocking on idle, you can manually change all those to enabled.

You can peruse this guide also - it is based on the P67 boards, but the settings should be the same.
