Looks Like I need Some Help With OverClocking, Anyone? :) - Page 6

post #51 of 58
All i can advise you is based on what i've done myself really, pretty much most of it i've written in previous posts and over on the Haswell O/C thread. I'd suggest following the thread and also the Gigabyte one as there's lot's of useful info & tips on how to O/C. I know there's a lot of pages to read through between them but that's were the majority of us started.thumb.gif

Welp. So far what I did was disable rapid start, smart connect, all c states and xmp. So far. I'm stable. I dropped the "uncore" down to 34 (which before it was giving me 38 which was crashing) I set the core voltage to fixed at 1.2v I'll try out games later... if all goes well, I'll enable the cstates and xmp smile.gif

Well I tried at 4.3.. And guess what.. Yep, bsod. Increased to 1.225.. Same result. Maybe I have a bad overclocker..

Using XTU for 5 minutes isn't going to do anything!!! I can't make any other suggestions without repeating myself. Good luck with the O/C!smile.gif

My thing is that I don't like to leave a stress test unattended. I never know what could happen. Isn't daily use and mainly gaming would be the ultimate test.? Which I did do a few hours of gaming and no crash. I have seen people say they ran xtu, prime, and other tests for 8-12 hours just to have it crash while checking email. Your advice and everyone else's has helped get started, and I have started. I'm taking bits and pieces from everyone and trying to put it to use in my own way. And I apologize.. But I may ask the same question a few times.. No matter how many times I read your guide or anyone else's. It's just the way I'm learning this process thumb.gif

stress testing is indeed different from how many use their machines.
I use my machine for gaming, so would rather have gaming stable than stress test stable. I have had to tweak mine every so often, and BSOD's are incredibly rare, in fact sometimes I wonder if variations in the power supply are to blame rather than the overclock, my PSU is getting on for being 4 years old, and is only 80+ Bronze Corsair TX750, which for stock systems is probably more than enough, but I think the PSU gets much more important once you start to overclock. Looking at a seasonic based modular 80+ Gold for my next PSU, and if that makes my machine stable at a slightly higher overclock, I will have my answer! smile.gif

Yes indeed. 80+ gold or better is the way to go. That's one reason I got the one I have. The 10 year warranty helps too wink.gif I thought when I got this PSU, I would have room for over clocking and SLI... I don't think that'll happen. Guess I'll hold off on the SLI lol. Mines only a 750w Evga Nex G. Wish they made an 850 model.. Would've gotten that. Stress testing (even tho I asked which to use before) I never really intended to run for multiple hours. I guess I also look at it as why put the chip through all the heat and constant 100% usage when it'll never see that kind of load with my usage. I do understand the concept, just not for several hours. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. I used Aida 64 yesterday and if I had an unstable oc it found it very quickly. Which is very helpful.
