i7 2600k and maximus extreme z overclocking help needed please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi specs first as it mite help.
CPU=I7 2600k, MOBO=Asus ROG Maximus Extreme Z, RAM=2x4gig Crucial Ballist's Sport 1600hrz &2x2 Corsair Dominator 1600hrz 12gig in Total,GRAPHIC'S=MSI 670GTX 2gig,1st HDD,SSD Samsung EVO 250g, 2nd HDD V/Raptor 450g,3rd HDD Samsung 1TB,PSU=CoolerMaster 1000watt M2 Silent Pro,both the cpu and gpu are in custom watercooling loop,both waterblock's are EK waterblock's,loop is ,pump/res,cpu,rad,gpu,rad back into my swiftech 18watt 12volt ddc pump with xspc perpex res mounted ontop.

i am sort of new to overclocking intel cpu's,i had amd intill 2 years ago,now this little girl is my nu love,but i would love to hit a 5gig oc on my chip,yes my mobo does have 2 auto overclocking setting's,1st is a 4.2 oc and 2nd is a 4.6 oc,and i have even tryed to take it upto 4.7 just by adding a 7 instead of a 6 on the auto overclock,it did let me run a benchmark afterwards without adding any volts to it at all,i would love to be able to run a couple benchmarks at 5igi but i have not intrest in running a 5gig oc 24/7 as i am not sure thats really i very good idea?hahaha.

please can anybody give me sum simple settings i can imput into my bios setting to get a 5gig oc?is my 1600hrs ram anygood or would i need better or higher speed ram?i also owm a 2x2gig of dominatpr 1866hrz but i use the 12gig 1600hrz for gaming as i play battlefield 4 maybe a little to much ashahahaha,any help anybody has got would be very very nice of you guy?thanks look for ward to hearing from you guys soon,i hope sooooo,hahahaha thanks:)

Can you please put a space after your punctuation (periods, commas, question marks, etc.)? It's a little bit difficult to read otherwise.

 

Anyway, the only way to overclock is by experimenting. It's not exactly possible to just input someone's settings and then be done. You have to work your way towards the goal because every single CPU is different, every single motherboard is different, etc. etc. etc.

It's a computer!

you are going to have get into the nitty gritty of your motherboards settings and manually overclock. Most auto overclocking setups are only good for a mild-medium overclock. The guide I posted is for ivy bridge, but the settings should be near identical for your setup. Every chip is different, so nobody can give you an exact list of settings that will give you a successful overclock for your specific chip. Many chips will not be able to reach 5.0 for daily usage.

Good luck!

If youre trying to do an extreme OC like 5.0ghz; try to put in 1.45v and 50x as the multiplier and see if you can boot up to Windows Desktop. If you cant, try enabling PLL Overvoltage, this will allow some CPU's to boot when doing extreme OC like 5.0+. PLL Overvoltage will shorten the life of your CPU, but from what i hear you may lose a year or two of life if you do activate it. A little risky, but you do get to churn out extreme OC's like this.

if you cant boot up with 1.45v then i suggest not to go any higher unless you are water cooling. 1.45v is a lot of voltage but were just doing this for testing purposes to see if you can even clock to 5.0 in the first place. Some CPU's cant even hit 5.0 ghz even if you put 1.50v. So keep that in mind. If you get lucky with the silicon lottery; maybe you'll get a good clocker; most of the time though hitting 5.0ghz is hard and not many can OC that high.

You are better than me, I think I just learned OC.
