Is It Safe To Use BLCK Overclocking on Ivy Bridge-E

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hi, i have my 4930k overclock @4.5Ghz. and i have the BLCK at 125 and the cpu strap at 125, so 125 and Multiplier is 36 = 4.5GHZ. i hear stories when you raise the BLCK you put more stress on the mobo. will this BLCK overclock damage my ASUS Rampage IV Extreme X79 in the future.

no you should be fine at 125mhz strap, won't damage anything it's made to do it

This. I run my 4820k at 125 as well. It helps with ram speeds of 2400 and above.

alright, I know I could use the strap at 125. but being that BLCK is at 125 won't damage anything, like the PCI-E, My SATA Drives. like anything that connects to my mobo that the BLCK overlocks.

your BLCK was at 125 also right, along with the cpu strap at 125.

Straps are not affecting anything other than the CPU speed and memory dividers, it's essentially a way of isolating the CPU BCLK from the system BCLK (strap 125 = CPU/RAM sees 125, everything else sees 100).

That sai, I hhave been running my 3930K for over a year with the actual BCLK between 102.4 and 105.6 without a single issue (CPU @ 4.8-5.2, RAM @ 2280-2584) and I have, at the moment, 8 platter drives and an ODD in the system.

I can't speak for IV-E, but SB-E I have found that increasing the BCLK can result in significantly increased clock speeds while NOT requiring much/any increase in voltage compared to using just the multiplier to hit thesame speed. 1.355v 4.87Ghz 24/7, and 5.17Ghz w just 1.405v...

Yep should be all good, 125MHz is not even breaking a sweat. With SB-E could get to 125MHz no worries (but could not post at 166MHz), but with IB-E it is even better as with 4930K can easily reach 166MHz strap and remain stable, then that will give you a new range of memory overclock points to choose from.

alright thanks, i'm going to try the 166MHZ Strap. and see if that lower my VCore on my 4.2GHZ overclock smile.gif.

In case the other comments are not clear, overclocking via BCLK is usually detrimental to other components linked to the BCLK bus like SATA and the PCI-E slots. Intel, being the Frankensteino El Lobotomo extraordianire of the techno-mumbo-jumbo universe, knew when they released the then new multiplier limited/lobotimised 3820 CPU for the LGA2011, that they would not be selling any 3820 for the LGA2011 [other than to their orgiastic foot-snifflings] unless they find a way to facilitate overclocking of this deliberately brain-deadened 3820 multiplier limited CPU if only because their own competitive 3770K [and its predecessors] will kill the 3820 dead on the spot when it comes to trying to claw back some value-added points for this donkey/ass/superficial-pretender of a CPU. That way/means to fooling Da Stupido-Dumbo is Convolution Heaven Overclocking via BLCK. For this "sin", Intel's "Sinners", whenever they are overclocking a LGA2011 mobo via BCLK, will NOT be overclocking their SATA or PCI-E slotted add-ons as well.

This is Convolution Heaven because for ANY other contemporary non-LGA2011 mobo, overclocking via BCLK WILL be overclocking/potentially-damaging other components coupled to the BCLK bus. Even now, this is not clear to many, such is the effectiveness of Intel's sly of hand trick - ie. their manipulative prowess over their cohorts of foot-snifflers.

A true human is the one who tries his best to raise his fellow human's awareness whereas the superficial/Over-vs-Under human is the one who tries his best to dumb-dwon his fellow human via creatively parasiticals like "Overclocking via BCLK". At least for the EOL 4820K, Intel is atoning for its sin - perhaps not because of Guilt [because Guilt is merely Anger suppressed] but because of the very many non-LGA2011/non-E/Sandy-Ivy mobos frying their HDDs, GPUs, etc. But not when the well-fried HDDs or GPUs are outta warranty, me duck, of course. Or perhaps there are real humans running amok within Infinitisers like Intel. Perhaps, so long as Count de Money is satisfied with the Bottomlined profits.

Don't worry about 125 or 166 strap as long at the machine posts, boots, and is stable then it will be fine. None of the other components are overclocked like SATA and PCI-E, the strap setting is independent to just the CPU, the only thing that will change is the ratio of the memory will raise accordingly to the strap selected. The only thing I have noticed it the bottom memory ratio that was 800MHz becomes 1333MHz, this did not give me a good result with synthetic tests, although the next setting up which I believe is 1778MHz or something like that is pretty fast in tests.
