i5 2500k wont stay stable after 3.8GHZ - Page 2

post #11 of 15
75C is fine if that is while running stress testing. But 1.465V is too much for 4.5. I don't know that I've ever heard of a 2500K needing that much voltage for that speed. Usually it is more in the neighborhood of 1.35~1.375.

It sounds like you have load line calibration turned off (if multi-step load line is what your board calls it). Try setting that to one of the middle values and see if that lets you lower the voltage.

What is the actual voltage (as shown by CPU-z) under load? I assume that you have 1.465V set in the BIOS, but with LLC turned off your actual load voltage is probably quite a bit less than that - which is why you need such a high value. Turning on LLC should allow you to lower the core voltage.

You should also be able to leave Intenal PLL Overvoltage disabled, it is usually only needed above 4.6.

Here a picture of my old 2500K..biggrin.gif

Thanks guys, i shall send my bios menus and settings in here once im done with work on this side of the world wink.gif.

If i leave everything to auto and multi stepping i pushed to lvl 10, it still crashed, BSOD errors 101 and 124 i was getting.

Holy vcore batman. You should slow down your progress and go in small steps. Get 4.0ghz 100% stable. Id probably start with the voltage in the 1.3 range and work backwards from there. Once the computer fails to boot increase it one increment (each board is different) mine is .005. Then start stress testing. Increase vcore until you find a good stable oc. Shouldnt be hard on SB. Alot of people on here claim to have "stable" overclocks but regardless of how easy sb is to overclock there is still a process. There are some very comprehensive guides on here for you to read and work from. 100 people can tell you how to do it but each chip is different. Good luck!

I got it to run stable under stress with multiplier set to x40 and everything set to auto and multi stepping back to it default setting, i did start increasing by 0.005v, eventually when i got to that volt where it would sit stable under load.
