Skylake Non-K Overclock on ES? - Page 4

post #31 of 1338
Nice! I just ordered one of these today. Should be getting it along with a mobo with an external clock gen within the week to see how far this thing can go. My MSI board wouldn't budge past 163 BCLK with an i5 6400.

I updated the first post with my findings.


I'm considering getting another motherboard with a dedicated clock gen, but I'm worried i'd end up getting a dud.

I mean it's really a lottery at this point, but at $50.... ahhhh gosh.

So another update, and no screenshots so i apologize.

Got a Z170-A with bent pins, fixed it up and it works, everything tests out. (for $55 i might add!)

Started playing around with the ES CPU and I keep hitting stability issues around 4 - 4.1 GHZ. Windows sometimes boots, but it'll randomly freeze up. This is only with a BLCK of around 170 mhz, so I'm a little confused why it's still having problems even with the dedicated clock source.

This is also with a 1.36 vCore and other settings highly tweaked and changed, many many times to no avail. stun.gif

Also updated it to the latest bios and BLCK Ocing is obviously still available along with everything else. Thought that was kind of strange.

I'm not totally sure what to do now. Keep it and run it at a lower frequency?

I could, it is still an i7 and can kick an i5 out of the water multithreaded wise. Single threaded though it'll be a bit slower, which is important for gaming. Mmm.

My Z170i Pro Gaming should be delivered tomorrow, already have the CPU and ram. I'll let you know what I can reach clock wise.

Any updates Berto?

Not anything good. Having trouble with anything over ~3.6Ghz. Fans and everything will turn on and it will just run with no video or debug leds lit. Also, hwinfo and aida64 are reporting a base clock of only 24Mhz so I don't know what is up with that. I have tried 3 different bios and almost every setting I can think of. I am using an Asus Z170i Pro Gaming btw.

What settings are you changing?

I have tried changing everything and changing the fewest possible, doesn't seem to make a difference.

PLL voltage, vcore, FLCK speed (to 400 or 800 MHz)....


Yeah, that's basically exactly what was happening to me too when I was testing mine. Sometimes it'd boot properly, or it's get to the windows loading screen, or all the way into Windows and then it'd hard lock and be unresponsive.


I wonder what wall we're hitting. Seems to be roughly around the same area, 160-170 MHz.

BLCK is tied to just the memory clock, cache and FLCK correct?...

Hi and sorry for bad English!

It's great you opened us this CPU! I mean if this ES is almost i7 6700 and will work at least 90% of it it will be amazing! I have found just one YouTube user, I believe his Korean who posted some videos when he plays Forza Motorsport game. He left no comments about clock speed, used mobo and etc, and I think that video shows stock playing using IGP.
So, there are two guys who was brave enough to buy this ES, we can see CPU-Z info and read interesting things about your explorations, but... Where are game tests?! You both have gtx 970/980 cards! Show us profit! I'm gonna get this CPU and z170 board, but it will be very great to see some videos of game play of some modern games! Or at least some screenshots and text describing it! Please! ))

Regards
