Built a new PC - Need help OC'ing - Page 3

post #21 of 36
You're going to need to increase CPU voltage most likely when increasing overclock. I'd keep it under 1.4V.

also my max temp reached was 84c but its averaging around 79c while under 100% stress

another thing I noticed is my temps are fluctuating a little between cores...like 5-10C, is that just thermal paste that needs to be re-applied or could it be something else or is it completely normal??

Haha, increase multiplier only!

boot to windows and test.

if it crashes, up voltages 1 or 2 strap steps.

When its stable for an acceptable amount of time you can keep that setting or move on.

keep settings in notepad. learn your hardware.

This is applicable for like every aspect of setting in the bios. It will take forever, but at the end your computer will have a name and personality and will probably be insanely fast and reliable.

quickly edited for skipped a step. :]

ok so i tried at 4.7ghz @ 1.350v and it crashed within minutes when i ran stress test. i got the whea uncollectable error.

what should i try?? and by multiplier you mean the spot where i write "46" for 4.6ghz right?

Yes... It's either the core multiplier or, base/boost multiplier.

the base is default which is 100 right?, the core multipler is 46 yeaH?, im asking what made me crash when i jumped from 46 to 47...what should i be changing in my settings? im very new at this. so speak noob language if you can.

i wanna know what setting to try so i can succeed at 4.7ghz

anyone? please? i ran x264 on 4.6 ghz @ 1.350v and i succeeded.

i tried running it at 4.7ghz @ 1.350v and 1.360v and it still failed. what do i do? i want to see if 4.7ghz or higher is possible.

my cooling is h100i
post #27 of 36
What temperatures are you getting at 4.6 GHz?

I run on 4.5 GHz because it required more than 1.38v to get it stable.

at 4.6 @ 1.350v max temp i hit is 83C.

its hovers between 77-80C mostly though. thats at cpu stress 100%

when its idling, its at 35C

also, when it crashes at 4.7 @ 1.350v or 1.360v, it doesnt pass 80C so not sure whats making it crash,

the error i got on windows 8.1 was " clock watch dog error."

Most BSOD's can be solved by upping the VCore by a notch or more, temperature doesn't seem to be much of an issue, go ahead and increase the CPU VCore voltage if you want.
