O/C Question need help ASAP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow overclockers.

So, I thought I'd give it a real try and actually do something besides leaving voltage on auto and going for a 42 multiplier on the CPU.
My first goal is to reach a stable 4.5GHz clock, and so far so good!
Followed all the steps and set everything in BIOS as the guide says.

I've had Prime95 running for about an hour with my CPU at 4.5GHz with a maximum Vcore of 1.200v, average value I see is 1.184v
(Goes up and down I'm eyeballing the hell out of HWMonitor/CPU-z) biggrin.gif

And if I follow the steps in the guide, I'm not entirely sure if this was way to easy or if I'm simply clueless when it comes to Overclocking:
- Started with offset: +0.005v and turbo + 0.004v, went from 50 multiplier and down to 46 then it booted up and ran Prime95 for about 15 minutes untill BSOD.
- Lowered to 4.5GHz, and it's been running just fine since then.

So my question is this:
Do I leave it as is for another 11 hours and call it done, or do I try to lower Vcore to get a more green overclock, according to the steps I'm supposed to go as low as possible but since I'm at the starting point here I'm not sure I should go any lower when it's just +0.005v since that would mean I go with a negative voltage, right?

I guess within 12 hours I should probably have another BSOD and then up the offset, right?
If it runs fine I guess I'll just leave it as it is unless you say otherwise.

Take a look at my numbers here and see if they are ok and recommend me what to do next, I shall be waiting for your guidance through this jungle of numbers. smile.gif

need help ASAP .... <--- Bad subject. Don't they all.....

Best advice for a beginning overclocker:
Go slow. Change one thing at a time.
Write down what you changed and what happened.

Sorry I can't give you specifics, since I do AMD.

I would let it run for a long time to see what your temps get up to. Long term stability will also be tested with this. Prime 95 is a hard synthetic test, if you can run p95 for a couple hours stable then your computer will be stable for whatever you want to use it for. P95 will test the ultimate stability and maximum temps. if you plan on increasing your OC then i would let it run for at least 3-4 hours to make sure youre not going to be heat limited for increasing the OC. Once you esablish that your temps are good enough to continue increasing your OC then increase it slowly and make sure of your stability and temps. When you get to where you want to be finally, then go for the long 12-24 hour P95 run to make sure everything is stable and cool enough not to throttle.

I just stopped P95 after 14 hours and 47 minutes and the highest temps reached was 71c and that is what my fans running at 800rpm so heat is so far not a problem.
I'm just curious about all the voltages if they are ok since they dont mean a lot to me.

Your voltages seem fine to me, but I've got a 4960x so my voltages might be higher than yours should be...
