i5 2500k overclock manual voltage?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am trying to overclock my 2500k to around 4.0ghz or maybe a little more on a ASUS p8z77-v
motherboard.
I am still pretty new to this and its BIOS but
so far I have set the overclock tuner mode to manual and set the turbo ratio to 40 and left the BCLK at 100 where
I heard it is best to leave it and then I set my memory frequency to match my ram.
What other settings do I need to adjust and what is the point of speedstep if I am controlling the voltage manually I have heard a lot of people
say to turn that off along with C1E,C3 and C6?
I have run several prime95 test's all with speedstep on and the rest set to auto and using a H60 I am getting pretty good temps around 60c.
Any advice or tips would be helpful.

1,30v for 4.0-4.2
1.35v for 4.2-4.5
1.45v for 4.5-4.9

That's what my 2500k required

I was able to go down to around 1.2 or maybe a little lower for 4ghz.
Do you use speedstep or any of those things?
I heard that it tries to lower your voltage when idle which would be pointless right since
we are using manual voltage?

SpeedStep just lowers your clocks and voltage when you aren't doing anything demanding, it saves power and normally doesn't have any consequences. It can sometimes cause your chip to be unstable at idle.

Yea if there is no consequences I am going to use it.
I like the idea of some of these power savers.
Since my goal is only around 4ghz is it ok if I use auto offset voltage which is what it runs stock at?

Another thing I am confused about as well is my memory frequency it was running below what
my ram is designed to do so is it a good thing to set its frequency to what it is meant for because I read that
sometimes you should run it slower which honestly I have no clue about?
In X.M.P mode it lets you pick a ram profile.
I have corsair vengeance ram.
Thanks for the advice guys.

The auto voltage seems overkill actually back to manual voltage it looks like.
