For some reason, I can't get it above 3.8Ghz, and my voltage cannot go beyond 1.1 - anything above that and the computer won't boot/reboots. 3.9Ghz is unstable.
Heck I tried leaving leaving the multiplier alone and just toying with the voltage - reboot once the voltage hits 1.1
Am I doing something obviously wrong? I haven't really overclocked much, but I also have an i5-4690k that easily gets 4.3Ghz - and that's without even touching the voltage.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong with the G3258.
Same problem here but I am using Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H (F7 BIOS)
This Z97 board has one review and it was able to overclock a Core i7 4770K to 4.5 GHz
I have already checked these 2 Haswell OC guides from this site
I tried the following OC settings
CPU ratio = 44
CPU uncore ratio = 33
CPU Vcore = 1.26 V
Vrin aka VccIN = 1.90 V
XMP profile = disabled
DRAM ratio = 13.33 (default)
All other settings left to AUTO or BIOS default
The PC will boot up to the Windows 7 logo on startup then suddenly restarts and just loops that way
I have to remove the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS
Like the guy I quoted above, I was able to boot at 3.8 GHz (CPU uncore @ x38) using 1.28 Vcore. All other settings at default. It boots into the desktop and able to run Intel Burn TestEdited by TPCbench - 8/1/14 at 8:00am
