Can someone provide a guide on how to get 4.5 - 4.6 Ghz ? I am still kind new to this BIOS, after coming from a X58 i7 930 system, but will be doing some exploring in the BIOS

My specs:

i7 6700K batch L606F380
Asus Z170 Pro Gaming
Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz
Corsair H110 CPU cooler
EVGA G2 1000W
Asus 980Ti Strix
Fractal Design Define R5 Mid Tower Case


Should I be following one of these guides ?

Following the Maximus guide is your best bet. It may mean ruins a couple settings that you will not have or are named something slightly different. The foundation of the overclock however will be the same. Essentially you want to set the Vcore voltage to manual and apply some voltage say 1.36V. You then want to increase the multiplier for the cores as high as possible until unstable. Once unstable increase the voltage by .02 at a time until you either reach around 1.44V which is a good round safe number to keep as a peak voltage or until your temps get in the high 70s low 80s which ever happens first depending on your cooling. Once you find the manual voltage it needs switch to adaptive to allow the voltage to dip under idle.

This is 50 runs of x264 16t normal max temps is 82c, should I lower multi or keep going?
You should set manual voltage in the bios. Setting to adaptive while stress testing can cause the voltage to overshoot a good bit depending on the program. Only switch to adaptive when you are done testing.

Hi thanks for the comments.
My board is weird, its an Asrock extreme 7+ what your seeing is balanced mode NOT performance mode. In performance mode only core 1 downclocks the rest stays, is this normal.
One thing to note i lowered vcore by.02 and in hwinfo max vcore is 1.376 , so from 1.408 to 1.376 is this normal? LLC is on level 1 i havent tried going higher, but going up a multiplier and doing my pre-tests ie 5 x264 runs and 30 realbench and a run of the benchmark in realbench it passes, so im gonna try 50 runs of x264 to see if it passes. I am startimg to think my chip is a pretty good clocker. The screen shots i posted earlier are with default "standard" fan curves, after adjusting them to my liking it doesnt break 80c while stressing x48...
Wish me luck.
Settings:
X48 1.33 volts bios fixed mode
Auto cache
100.0 bclk
XMP 2400 CAS 16 1.2 volts
LLC level 1
Hmm.. Oh yeah custom fan curve, i think thats all that i fiddled with so far.
Ill post screen shots if i pass or fail..

Going from 1.408 to 1.376 is normal. What you are seeing is the limited resolution of the voltage readout.

Alright.. I passed x264 50 runs!!! 1.33 in bios@4.8Ghz..
I am surprised...

Very good chip. May be able to click to 4.9 at 1.44. What kind of cooling are you using and is the chip Delidded? We seem to be running similar voltages as the chip I have currently. Not in bios but the actual applied voltage to the chip according to HWinfo.

Here i can only hit with i5 6500 non-k @4.4 with 1.35v + level 7 but if i try to hit @4.5 i need 1.440v + level 7.


I am on Asus rog VIII hero.

Interesting... I am hoping I don't have to go that high on vcore....
I'll do more testing later.. so should I lock this in as a stable 4.8Ghz overclock?

At this point I would say you are stable. If you do not want to increase to 1.44 then you can always work on BCLK overclock to fine tune it. This should allow you to achieve 4.85 at 1.42 peak voltage. That is what I am at for 24/7 and we are following at similar clocks and voltages.

I've had my 6700k and gigabyte motherboard now about three weeks, have the strangest problems. I can overclock and run stresstests without a problem, but i can't play games without the computer frezzing. I have tried everything, small overclock and much voltage, still the same. Tired...

i just ordered a asus Rog motherboard instead, if i have the same problems there i'm going to snap :S lol
