Overclocking Asus H87M- Plus? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
Thanks greg youve been a massive help. So after I adhust my turbo freq I should run a burn test to put the cpu into turbo and see how its handling? My base temp now is around 29c. Whats a confortable temp under turbo?

Also, if my voltage isnt enough will the cpu shut itself off during the burn test?

If the voltage isn't enough, I'd expect it to lock up, reboot on it's own, or come up with an error in the burn test. I actually don't recommend the real "Intel Burn Test" utility, I think it's a little too much of a torture test than is practical for any more than 15-30 minutes.

What kind of heat sink / fan do you have on that processor? If you're using the stock Intel HSF that comes in the retail box with the CPU, I wouldn't run IBT at all. Temps with the stock HSF can get as high as 80C or more, and that's too high IMHO. I like to see core temps (measured with Core Temp or HWInfo4) at 70-75C or less under maximum CPU load. Idle temps are somewhat irrelevant.

I have the cooler master hyper, the one thats highest rated on newegg.

I set my turbo to 4.2 and voltage to 1.25. Temps got up to 77c with intel burn test (before I read your post). Ive been playing with the voltage to get it as liw as possible. Currently at 1.18 and windows 8 detrcts an issue after a few minutes and reboots. I guess I need to up the voltage a little more. Its strange that windows would detect a problem though considering I was just on the desktop and the cpu wasnt being stressed.

Keep bumping the voltage up (or the clock speed down) until you find a reasonable compromise. The 4.2 GHz 1.25v sounds reasonable, as does the 77C IBT temps. The Hyper 212 Evo is a nice heat sink, but not the best for overclocking. You should at least stick a second fan for push/pull with it, it will help a little.

I got 4.2ghz stable with 1.18v and only a max temp of 63c while running prime95

A few messages above your last one you said at 1.18V @ 4.2 GHz Windows 8 crashes after a few minutes. That doesn't sound stable. LOL.

Yes, im sorry, I was actually at 1.12 before and at 1.18 now and stable at 4.2ghz and 63c max temp. Thinking about going up to 4.4ghz but im not sure how significant the difference would be

Hey joe... I just got the same motherboard and processor. Could you post some pictures of the bios screen and what you changed please that's stable? Would appreciate it!

I just wanted to note down the voltages will vary from chip to chip. The same model of a CPU and another same model may overclock differently. One may require more voltage at the same click and the other CPU may require less voltage at the same clock.

IMO I would head for a higher OC. The CPU temperature hasn't gone past or near 80C so theres alot of room for overclocking. You might even get to 4.7 if you can manage a good voltage such as 1.32 on 4.7 GHz. The performance difference varies depending on what you use your CPU for.

Or can anyone post some pictures of a successful overclock in the BIOS screen please? I'm new to this and am more of a picture person -.-
