3930k overclock !

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Hello guys ! Today is the day where i overclock my cpu !!

Note that i did not install any drivers for any components since i will be reinstalling windows soon.

So where do I start !? Last time I overclocked was on an old e8500, and it seems things have gotten a bit more complex with SB-E.


So first of All, is there a fast and easy way to know if my 3930k is a good overclocker ?


Motherboard is the asus sabertooth x79


thank you !!! smile.gif

Stable for 1hour, raising to 4.9 ghz , keeping the same voltage.

And for reference, the temps were around 60 to 70 max

I am now back to 4.7 because 4.8 and 4.9 crashed... Last time i tried 4.7 i was at 1.4 V. I am now trying at 1.37 volt. My temps range from 70 to 64 tough is the vcore that much of a concern ?

This is some kind of general recommendations. Your temps are ok and probably that your ambient temperature is low

Yeah ambiant temperature is about 20C. Finally an advantage to being a poor student that cant heat properly lol.

So right now its running at 4.7 with 1.37 volt. Alss settings unchanged except the cvore and multiplyer. Going to let it urn for the night on occt and try 4.8 tomorrow.

If you really want to go higher, then bump your vcore a little further and see how you go. As long as your CPU temps under full benchmarking load are <80C you will be fine.

Also, check what bsod error you get so you know which area to adjust to improve stability.
