And after 25min in prime95 (all max in newest version) i got a core o: 56 and core3: 61, I guess this is good enough? Can somebody make me a step to step to achive 4.5ghz? I guess my chip will do 4.5 at 2.9? havent tested yet, There are so many settings, what shoud i change? And by how much/little?

The reason why i am asking cause im 14 and dont want to mess up my rig which i have saved for a couple of years wink.gif) My 780 is at 1250mhz/1650mhz smile.gif)
I would recommend this thread, if you havent checked it out already. Lots of good people to help you there if you run into any problems as well. Good luck and good job on the build!

Thank you! smile.gif Do you think 4.4/4.5ghz is possilbe? And i will try OC later on, Maybe later this night smile.gif

The thing i didnt understand is about the diffrent voltage settings for the Mobo/cpu smile.gif one is for vrms? one cpu and the other one i dont know smile.gif Well i guess i haft to figure it out sometimes, when i Oc`ed my q6700 it was just the multiplier and voltage o shoud look for tongue.gif Thanks agan thumb.gif

It is possible, the linked thread also shows statistics, and that seems to be the average/median oc achieved by those that have submitted results.

You are correct in that there is a little more involved in overclocking Haswell, but you should have all the info you will need in that thread. Good luck sir!

If anyone can take a picture of their settings including all the diffrent voltages, So i can start from somewhere it woud be nice wink.gif) I Better start reading the tread now smile.gif
post #1936 of 2766
IS there`s a diffrence if i start right on 4.5ghz, instead of going ti 3.8-4.0-4.2? wink.gif

You don't want to start right at 4.5ghz because you don't know how much voltage it will take to be stable.

When you use Prime95 go to "custom mode" and set "Min FFT size in K" to 1344 and "Max FFT Size in K" to 1344.

You are probably safe to start at 4ghz, try 1.2v. Make sure you don't use Adaptive Voltage. Set CPU core voltage to "manual mode" and set it to 1.2v. Set cache ratio to 34x and cache voltage to manual mode, 1.1v. See if you can boot into Windows and run Prime95 for 20 minutes at 4ghz. In all likelihood, with that ratio and voltage it will be fine. Next, bump it to 4.1ghz, boot into Windows and try running Prime for 20 minutes.

Eventually, you're going to either be unable to boot into Windows at all or you will blue screen or get a system lockup when you try running Prime. When this happens, raise your voltage by .01 (so, 1.21v) until you are able to boot into Windows and pass Prime again.

Once you get to 4.5ghz and can pass 20 minutes of Prime95 and know your voltage, you need to run the x264 stress test for a few hours to make sure you don't crash.

Get the x264 stress test here. Run the "x264_Stability_Test.bat". Hit enter. For how many times to run, put 9999 and hit enter. Next, hit 1 or 2 depending on whether you have 32 or 64 bit Windows. Hit enter twice to start the test. Let this run for a few hours and monitor your temps. If your temps exceed 95C you need better cooling and will start to throttle. If you can pass 6 hours of this test, you are probably stable.

Hope this helps.

What are the symptoms of the clock bug? How would I know if I had it?

First of all, congratulations on the rig. You're 14 and you're a boss for saving up and making it happen. I remember that feeling and it's really exciting. And that's a nice rig you got there! thumb.gif

The UEFI BIOS can be confusing but with OCing on the Hero there are only five settings that you need to touch. I put all of the setting into the favorites tab (by hitting F4 I believe).

Voltages
1) CPU Core Voltage
2) CPU Cache Voltage (aka VCCRING)
3) Eventual CPU Input Voltage (aka VCCIN aka VRIN)

Multipliers
1) CPU multiplier
2) Max Cache multiplier

That's it.

In terms of the method, here's what you should do. People have different methods but this is how I do it, based on this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics/0_100

Read the first post of that thread many times and you'll understand OCing Haswell.

Get HWInfo and run that in the background as you game on your PC at bone stock settings (don't use synthetic benchmarks just in case you're on adaptive voltage). Note down your maximum voltages for Vcore (CPU Core Voltage), VCCIN (Eventual CPU Input Voltage), and VCCRING (CPU Cache Voltage).

1) Set your max cache multiplier to 33x so you don't turbo.
2) Set your Eventual CPU Input Voltage to the max value you observed in HWInfo using Manual voltage. For reference, 1.8v should be about the max for starting out OCing.
3) Set your CPU Cache voltage to the max value you observed in HWInfo using Manual voltage. For reference, 1.15v should be about the max for starting out OCing.
4) Set your CPU Core Voltage to the max value you observed in HWInfo using Manual voltage.
5) Set your CPU multiplier to 40x.
6) Set your RAM to run at 1600 or 1333 for now. You can enable XMP or higher speeds once you're doing OCing your core.
6) Go stress test with games and x264 or whatever you like.
7) If you're stable, then change CPU multiplier by going up by 1 and retest. If you BSOD note the code (probably 124, 101, or 9c), and you will probably need to increase CPU Core Voltage. Increase that by about .025v and retest.

This method is geared towards isolating the core frequency, which is why you're running the cache and RAM at slow speeds. The cache speed isn't really important for performance.

Once you're done with the core, you can up your Cache speed using the same method of changing one variable at at time and testing. Once you're done with that, set your RAM to XMP or increase the speed manually.

Good luck. Check out that thread I linked. It's OCing gold.

Thank you so much, I really love my new rig. My old one was a i5 3470 780 Classy, and a old antec psu, long story short, My Psu made my old gfx caught fire and killed my mbo, So i decided to go Haswell thumb.gif I have disabled Intel turbo thingy smile.gif And max temps in bf4 where 52¤ after a hour or so smile.gif Yes the feeling when the parts are right there ^^ I have saved for a long time, Last upgrade woud be another HDD, and a new case, I use a old Antec P180. Bad case for airflow frown.gif, My RAM is 1600mhz, And your expanation was much easier than the tread (as far as i understood the tread) I will test this out later today smile.gif
