Overclocking my 2500k, need some help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I've been following this guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/910467/the-ultimate-sandy-bridge-oc-guide-p67a-ud7-performance-review

The problem I've been having is throttling. Once my cup reaches ~58c, it throttles back down to 33Ghz. I've followed the guide and turned off all of the stepping/thermal throttles, but can't figure out why it is still dropping down. I'm comfortable running my cpu in the 60's, idk why it is not.

C1E
EIST
C3, C6 States
CPU Thermal Monitor

These are all disabled.

Please let me know if I need to provide any more information.

Is there an option in your bios to change the current limits? I think what is happening is that your vrm's are shutting down at a higher voltage draw because they are still set to what the TDP would be when the cpu is at stock.

Ok thanks I'm looking at these power options now

Based on this (http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1604888) it seems that there isn't much I can do with this motherboard.
