Newbie help Overclocking 2700k

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am complete newbie when it comes to overclocking. I use my pc for gaming and rendering in maya. my pc is all stock atm 3.9 turbo kinda thing. I would like to know how much difference to render times and gaming fps i could get by doing a conservative overclock say 4.5 ghz.
When i originally bought this cpu it came with a gigabyte mobo and was overclocked by aria to 4.7 but i have changed my motherboard to a z77 msi and its all now at stock.
I have found that while rendering i used to be able to watch videos and stuff but now its at 3.9 i have to only use 7 threads to render so i have seen a difference.
I have looked alot online and have seen post's that says just up the multiplier to 4.5 and the vcore to 1.35 is this ok.
And also this mobo overclock to 4.2 with the OC genie feature but i would like around 4.5.
Is my system even capable of 4.5?.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

that mobo is really good so you could easily get it higher than 4.5 if you wanted. for 4.5ghz, 1.35v is about average (that's what im running on one of my pc's now) and usually 4.8ghz comes in at about 1.4v. just test out different voltages and multipliers and see what works best for you

I'm running a 2500k in a MSI z77a-g45 right now at 4.5 (1.312 vcore). There is a thread for the msi z77 boards on OCN. Pg# 11 and post 106 here http://www.overclock.net/t/1251630/official-msi-z77a-owners-discussion-information-support-thread-and-club-gd65-gd55-g45. That will show you how to overclock with the turbo and leave all the power saving things on. There is also a z77 mpower club here
http://www.overclock.net/t/1302731/official-msi-z77-mpower-owners-club-all-things-mpower.. If you need any settings i will try and help as much as i can

Thanks guys thats exactly what i was looking for, i actually found the same thread earlier but didnt get to page 11 lol. Ok i'm gonna follow that thread and see what i can get but first i will sleep.
I will keep you guys posted on what im changing and what temps etc, Again thanks for the advice

I have followed that guide and it seems to have worked awesome, I have much cooler idle temps and slightly cooler load temps. I have tested with a 15 min render in maya, all cores and threads 100% load and was stable max temp 62, some how this method has also cooled down my 560 ti's more than i would expect the in case temp to effect which is strange. I will proceed to do a 12hr or so prime 95 then do a 24 hr render and see if its stable and cool.

No problem. If you need anymore assistance send a p.m. The turbo o.c. way is the way to go with a msi board. That way you keep the power saving settings. You can drop the vcore more with lowering or raising the vdroop % also. I run mine at 50% vdroop offset %, so it runs at 1.312 vcore instead of 75% vdroop at 1.34 vcore. I realized that just messing around with the settings abit. When you get it right, post some results. Nice set up by the way. thumb.gif

I have left it at 75% vdroop offset as i cant afford to have bsod's while working and i think this will keep it more stable. But my understanding is limited.
I have done 4 hrs prime 95 and 2 hr render, What should i be using to post some results?
post #8 of 10
I had an MSI board it was great, I was able to do 4.5 @ 1.320 with 100% vdroop, it would only go down to 1.296 but was 100% stable
now the GIGABYTE board i have requires 1.430v in bios with a droop of 1.424 / 1.416 frown.gif
wish you luck mate!

Here is my experience with overclocking that cpu.

I finally succeed overclocking my computer at 4.78 GHz .(x48 multi) Here is the result. Give me some feedback (my actual concern is my vCore Voltage)

Settings:

Multiplier : x48
Base Host Frequency : 100 (default)
CPU Voltage mode : Offset mode
CPU Offset mode : + 0.3 v
Didnt touch anything a bout LLC, vDrop %.

Temperature:
Ambient : 22'C



# My air cooling setup > (Click to show)

I have the Phanteks PH-TC14PE cpu air cooler. You can see my bottom-(near psu) intake and my top exhaust. My two 140mm Phantek fans are also pushing air outside, as for the rear Corsair AF140 fan. I also have the two 120mm intake fans (front panel) and the 200mm side panel fan.

# My computer spec> (Click to show)

Case : Corsair Carbide 500R
Powersupply : Cooler Master GX 750W (12V@60A)
Motherboard : Intel boxDZ68BC
Processor : Intel i7-2700k Sandy Bridge (3.5 GHz)
Memory : Kingston HyperX DDR3 16GB (2x8GB) CL10 (XMP 1600mhz)

My actual questions :

1 : #
About my CPU vCore, is it too high for a stable daily usage, 25% of light gaming ?

..- (heard that optimally, I should be at less than 1.325 max ! I am at 1.344 idle, 1.360 max. I should try putting down my +0.3V offset to like 0.25 or 0.2, but I think I will have to down the multi too..)

I had followed the guide jethro has posted a link to and its been stable for like 2 weeks so far, getting real low temps and much faster render times than my friends stock 2600k so thanks guys, would recommend this method.
