Check temps, you should be below 85c at maximum load.

Thanks ivanlabrie. I have the vdroop set to high for now as i am doing a stability test on prime. I will set it to low. also, i chose static and set it to 1.25v. here is the screenshot running prime with cpu-z and everest for sensors:

It says on everest that CPU is at 48 degrees celsius. Do I look at the CPU alone or all the CPU cores for temps? By the way I am using CM Hyper 212+ with IC diamond 7 thermal compound.

Try to download coretemp or realtemp an check core temps with them. Much better and accurate...
48c is perfectly fine, you can likely clock higher if you can pass a 30min small fft's test with no bsods or errors or dead workers.

So I upped the OC to 4.5ghz and kept my voltage to 1.25v and chamged my vdroop to low. I ran prime for 30 min with small fft's. My current temps using core temp are core# 0 56c, core#1 64c, core#2 66c, and core# 3 66c. I will most likely run prime95 for 12 hours tonight for full stability test. Thanks for all the help guys! here is the pic of the test:

Those are amazing results! Now, run Blend test (select custom and change ram size to 90% of your total system ram) for 18hs...that's the ultimate stability test.
You can experiment with ram overclocking if you wish but it's not really needed.

To be honest, im not familiar with the Intel Extreme boards.redface.gif

Actually there was a vdroop control setting...so yeah basic llc tongue.gif not sure how good it works though.
Hopefully the OP got a better oc after all. tongue.gif (though I wouldn't push higher than 4.5ghz on that board...doubtful vrm's)

Yeah I got a pretty good OC. I ran prime95 custom with 90% of my ram for 12 hours and I was expecting my computer to be restarted by the time I woke up... still up and running. no dead workers. The maximum temp was 48c for 12 hours. When I was running prime with small fft's the max temp was 56c. So I have my CPU OC'ed to 4.5Ghz at 1.25v on the Motherboard, though CPU-Z shows 1.28v when running prime. I also have the turbo boost on so when the computer is idling, it downclocks itself.

Hi everyone, i have questions.

- i have a Intel DZ68BC extreme motherboard
- i have a Intel i7 2700K Sandy Bridge cpu

I see that i can play with CPu overclocking in two place. With a software named Intel Exteme tuning utility and in the bios of the DZ68BC board.

To begin from A to Z to a good overclocking (im aiming 5.0 Ghz), should i OC only on the board or on the software ? on the two at the same time ? What to begin in what order ?
