How to over clock the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe with the Intel 3930k Processor

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have the processor installed with no issues, I am building my custom loop cpu cooler this weekend, and after that if all goes well I want to start learning how to up clock the processor. it is stock 3.2 unlocked.

On air it is running stock at 95 F according to the bios.

But I do know it should be on liquid to attain the speeds I want to achieve. I am looking at the low to mid 4.xx Ghz...

So with that said

I give thanks to anyone in this forum in advance for any help you could provide.

Regards
Dev

95 F is 35 C, typically CPU temperatures get hotter than room temperture. You should be worried if you're computer reaches 100C, that's when the CPU will shutdown on itself. Although 100C is when the CPU starts failing, you're CPU should do fine as long as its below 90C.

Understood,

What have you heard about the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe board being finiky for over clocking the 3930k processor.....

I have seen on this forum and others that it does not over clock well...

I am looking for some ideas on what and how to set the voltages and cpu speed for my system.

Thank you again

I'd recommend you use Throttlestop (here) to manage voltages and increase the multiplier to "Turbo" (Intel's factory overclock settings that goes up to 3.8ghz). Higher voltages are needed when overclocking, this will also cause more heat. You can monitor the CPU clock rate realtime with CPU-Z (here).

Well I have finally made my decision on a Main Board, the ASUS Rampage Extreme IV...
After I tried to interact with ASRock's website and got no where that just leads me to believe I am going to have problems. Whereas ASUS I was able to download all software for the board with no failures.

And the other thing, I have always in the past 20 years used ASUS boards with very very good luck, other than me blowing up a bios on one back in the 90's trying to do a Flash, and then this Shower issue with my Liquid cooler. But that is not ASUS's problem, I have no one to blame but myself.

Not to mention I have heard all kinds of raves on multiple forums about the Rampage boards, I think this will be a good choice.

tty all laterz

How'd did you go with the overclock? Was just curious as I've got the same chip and asus p9x79 deluxe board on custom water overclocked to 48x100.

Well after all of the fright of overclocking I found it to be quite easy, just have to be careful of the vcore voltages. I never ran my vcore above 1.200

Here are my final settings to attain roughly 4.899 Ghz

VCore = 1.200
Multiplier = 100.000
Frequency = 48
Set your memory frequency at what ever your memory actually is ie: mine is 1600 I set my memory spec to 1600 Mgz

I left everything else alone as AUTO
I am running a custom 1/2 x 3/4 compression fitting loop and my temps are right around (and I know you guys dont like the F temps but it is all I know accurattly) I am running at roughly 105'F to 120'F and stable.

Once in a while it will throttle down when not under a load but that is ok.

Like me being a neubie at this I was all paranoid in fear I was going to damage something, but as long as your not greedy with the settings this board is fairly forgiving. this is JMO.

Hope this helps

Ahh very nice :-). Glad you got it sorted and a nice healthy overclock aswell. A couple years ago when I first started overclocking I was worried about frying my cpu it actually took me a couple months to get the nerve to start overclocking. I worried for nothing just read a lot and educated myself and went from there, well these days it's a great little hobby.

Yep I can actually I understand fully, based on my experience at OC'ng. Glad your unit is running great as well.
