i7 2600k @ 4.5ghz / Did I Do It Right?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I'm fairly new to overclocking, So I decided to dabble in to it as I've been well versed with the computer world.

This is what I did.
Intel i7 2600k @ 4.5ghz.
GA-Z68A-D3H-B3

I went into my BIOS and changed the Multiplier to 45.
Afterwards, I decided to search for the vCore so I could start at the 1.28v-1.3v range.
Turns out the GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 doesn't allow you to change the vCore and only the Dynamic vCore(DVID) so I decided to leave it alone.
I snooped around and tossed LLC onto Level 1.

I rebooted the PC, seems fairly stable.
VID fluctuates between 0.9957v to 1.3711v
After livestreaming battlefield 3 for awhile deciding to put the cores to work, I've noticed my temps are in the late 70's early 80's. Is this normal?

Am I doing something wrong?

Any tips to achieve a stable 4.5ghz overclock would be very helpful, but at the moment all i've changed in BIOS is Multiplier to 4.5, and turned LLC to Level 1.
If I could just change the vCore i'm sure I wouldn't be as paranoid as I am now.


This is the machine at idle.

That's hot while gaming. I bet its even worse while stress testing for stability. Get yourself an aftermarket cooler.

Yeah just get a decent cooler and you'll be right as rain. Those temps are standard for a 4.5Ghz 2600k @ Stock.

I use a Noctua DH-14 for mine at that clock, 25* idle, and about 45* on load.

ya, something as simple as coolermaster 212+ works wonders compared to stock

a good cooler like the d14 and there's got to be a way to control that vcore manually. i am not familiar with that mobo but it should only be around 1.28v @ 4.5. bf3 brings my cpu temp to 45C but it is underwater.

go back to your bios and see if there is a setting that you can set to manual.

I decided to revert back to 4.2ghz, as I feel more comfortable with this.
However my MoBo doesn't seem to have vCore anywhere in the BIOS.

You can clearly see vCore on this screen, however I cannot change it.

Umm, did you guys read the thread? He already has an Asetek 510LC (basically an H50).

OP, have you verified that the pump is running full speed (plugged into a molex plug is best, or make sure the fan header is running at 100%). What kind of fan/fan speed are you using? Have you tried reseating the cooler? I believe with that board you have to use the Dynamic Voltage to adjust the Vcore. There's a thread about overclocking with that board here somewhere.

This would be my first port of call. Then look at rad fan configuration and speeds
