Am I overclocking this i5 2500k/GA-Z77-D3H properly? I'm afraid I'm doing something very wrong... - Page 10

It crashed again mad.gif I had another BSOD during the night!

What should I do now? Lower my clocks or push for a higher voltage? It worries me that my CPU requires such a high voltage for 4.4GHz. It shouldn't be that way.

Just as a note, RealTemp reports that the VID is around 1.3811V, I personally think it's too much but, would it be worth it to try again with 1.365V?

Maybe it's time to adjust PLL settings and/or VTT. Also, wouldn't it be worth it to try with a high calibration? If I tested it that way before, and it was stable, maybe it's worth a try.

Test 6 @ 4.4GHz, running Blend test with 8GB of RAM being used, Prime 95, each FFT lasting 5 minutes, max FFT size: 1792KB

Motherboard Vcore running @ 1.365V
Voltage calibration set to High
CPU PLL @ 1.8V (Auto)
Core Voltage reported by CPU-Z: 1.356V - 1.368V Oscillating. Mostly sitting at 1.368V
Max temp registered at burntest: 77ºC so far
Highest VID reported by RealTemp: 1.3911V

So far, it's been 4 hours and it's been stable as hell. I think my system DID need a higher Voltage calibration. Will report back later.

hope much did you pay for your board?

About $1,300MXN, which should be $110USD, I guess. It was on sale, brand new in its package. Why?

hmm board that price should clock fine then.

when i was doing 4.9 I did it on a cheap 50 dollar board looool, it couldn't go any higher because the Vdrop was so bad.

Well, so far, it's been 5 and half hours of test and so far, no crashes. Don't know if I should keep testing. Seems like the high voltage control is the best setting for me. Are there any precautions I should take for my VRM's?

As long as you have decent case airflow they should be fine. You aren't at that high a voltage.

6 hours already, rock solid. Shall I stop the test or continue it for another 6 hours?

yes. 24 hours is the normal time frame.

I've heard it varies a lot. Some people do it for 8 hours, others for 12, and few for 24... Don't really know how much, though.
