Overclocking i7 2600k - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
My computer crashed running with BCLK at 102MHz, multipler at 42x, and voltage at 1.375v. 1.4v successfully ran for 20 hours.

I can try BCLK 100MHz, 45x, and voltage at 1.4v. However, my computer wouldn't boot last time I tried to OC at 100MHz.

Has been running for past 5 hours with 45x and 100MHz BCLK at 1.4v smile.gif I didn't enable the overclocking option above the BCLK setting the last time I tried at 100MHz. Maybe that was the problem?

So far the max temp has been 72C. If I would like to take this overclock higher, how would I proceed? I find every guide has a different approach and does not specifically describe what value must be increased and by how much. I would like to take it as high as I can under 80C.

Just increase the multiplier and test stability. If you have problems then you can increase the voltage a notch at a time until you get it stable again. You might also need to enable Internal PLL Overvoltage once you get above 4.6 or so.

I could not run with 46x at 1.425v. It is probably best for me to stay at 4.5GHz!

4.5 is still a nice overclock for a 2600K. Plenty fast for pretty much anything.
