Bios query and advice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all
small question with a bios problem I've created for myself,just wonder if there's an easy fix?
Firstly all works fine but while trying to overclock some how in my bios for my asus p8z68-v/gen 3 I now cant select the following it just jumps past them turbo ration mode ,by all cores and turbo mode
I think I crated the problem when I clicked on OC Tuner
Ive reset what I needed to after the tuner had done its thing but I now can't access those 3 options,
I can change the cpu speed under advanced which I've done but I now have two lines in yellow at the top of ai tweaker that have target cpu turbo mode speed and target dram speed that were not there before
Is there a way to go back to the way it was originally where I could manually change these options on the ai tweaker page?
and while my settings will not pass a burn test they run the programs that I require at the higher clock speed quite happily for hours I've noticed that for some reason windows on initial boot and some of the programs take longer to boot up despite upping my voltage core from what it was?( I have cpu voltage set at manual rather than offset )
I'm not to sure what to change that may increase the boot speed of programs so any advice or reading help for noobs would be appreciated
thanks

First, press F5 in the BIOS to load the optimized defaults. This will reset everything in the UEFI to the defaults, so this includes the other tabs as well. Prepare for that. So, if you changed any other settings that have nothing to do with overclocking, then I recommend that you remember what they are first.

 

Next, stay in the Ai Tweaker tab. Do not use Advanced.

 

Now, change Ai Tuner to Manual.

 

Then, choose By All Cores

 

Then, change "By All Cores (Can Adjust in OS) to what you want the overclock to be. So, for 4.5 GHz, use 45.

 

Disable Internal PLL Overvoltage to speed up the POST time by a couple of seconds.

 

Chang the Load-Line Calibration to Medium or Large, but Ultra High is unnecessary and can result in too high of a VRM temperature.

 

If using 4.5 GHz, then set the voltage to 1.40V for now. Our goal is to just get it stable at first. With a Medium LLC, this should result in 1.35 to 1.38V in Windows under full load in Prime95 (somewhere in that range, depending on your actual CPU).

 

Everything else can be on their default settings.

 

Stress testing is critical. If it's not passing a stress test, then it's not stable. Don't just go by how stable it is for your everyday tasks. That's not good enough when you're changing all of these variables by overclocking.

Many thanks for that
will chk my settings all first before I hit F5
currently trying to get a 4.9 with my i7 2700k currently like I say unstable for a burn but ok for programs at moment will try what you suggest and see if I can get it to stabalise without getting to hot!!!
Are there any good notes /tutorials that explain what each setting in bios does without having an extensive knowledge first before starting overclocks
cheers

I'm not sure.

 

For 4.9 GHz, you will probably need Internal PLL Overvoltage enabled. Try without it first to see though.

 

Also, for this high of an overclock, it probably won't be as simple as I described. You may need to manually adjust some other things, but what, I don't know.

 

Finally, since you're overclocking so high, I am curious: what's the make and model of your power supply?

If it's a generic PSU like that, then I sincerely and strongly recommend avoiding all overclocking until you can get a safe PSU. It's not the capacity, but the safety of the PSU itself for overclocking.
