Update with my 2600k - Ideas on how to achieve higher clock speeds?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Well, i cleaned out everything, so my temperatures are a lot better then they used to be.

No doubt when running prime, they will go over 80 after like 3 minutes, but i just figure i rarely use more then 30% of the CPU so its fine.

I managed to get it at 4.6GHZ 1.36V with LLC at Level 6 on my gigabyte board. The LLC raises the voltage, so under load it goes to like 1.404 which seems a little bit high, but i will try to tweak it later tonight.

Any ideas on how to get a higher clock with less voltage?

I would love to achieve 4.8Ghz 24/7 if possible.

I really hope everyone who looks at this thread is willing to post, because the more help i can get, the better.

my cooling system is a corsaid h60 and its always like 80 - 90 in my room.

Thanks for the help everyone,
Mike

Ok,

So you say you cleaned out everything? What did you clean out and what did you replace it with, the TIM on the H60 isn't that bad too be honest.

Also, have you got your pump plugged into the CPU header and have you disabled PWM on that particular port. You don't want your pump throttled because you've controlled the power and slowed it down.

I did that, once I sorted it out I dropped 15c off my temps... :S

Thanks for the reply,
I have cleaned out all the dust on the radiator. I replaced the thermal paste on the processor with some Arctic Silver.
To be honest the thing was due for a thermal paste change, i have seen a tremendous drop in temperatures.
I will just plug the pump into a molex connector with the 3 pin adapter that i have.

I am really looking to achieve higher speeds with the same or less voltage than i am using now for 4.6Ghz
I don't want my processor to degrade itself.

Honestly, if you're in the 80's now under load @ 4.6GHz in Prime there really is no room for you to overclock any further until you get better cooling. In Prime, under load I'm in the mid 50's to low 60's under load @ 4.8GHz. Try running Intel Burn Test on Very High. See what temps you hit there. If it's over 80 degrees, I would say your overclocking adventures with the H60 have to come to an end, for now.

You have two choices, upgrade to a better unit or get higher static pressure fans for your H60 and put them in Push/Pull.

High level LoadLine Calibration can often over compensate and raise you voltage under load. Its very very unlikely that u need lvl 6 LLC for a 4.6 OC. Turn it to 50% or less, run a stability test, and re-compensate for a lower voltage. This will also lower the temps on your VRMs

The higher the bclk is and the lower the multiplier will give you a drop in voltage.

lets say for 4.2 162 x 26

If you board can do 200 bclk thats would be ideal. boost the llc at the same time for higher bclk.

u cant change the BCLK on sandy. the most u can do is +/- 2

inferring LLC is directly related to BCLK?

Level 6 LLC is extremely low, Level 1 or Level 2 is considered a High Level LLC. At least this is how it works on my motherboard.

meant vtt and pll for higher bclk and i did not know that sandy was stuck at 100. Still on 1156 here frown.gif

Overclocking on the 1366 and 1156 chipsets was completely different, We had locked multipliers and unlock baseclocks. Since Intel locked the PCI-E lanes to the BCLK and pretty mcuh everything else to the BCLK you can't change it anymore. :-(
