Help - i7 2600K idling at 4400MHz and 1.352V

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi overclock.net,

Its my frst post smile.gif

Im having trouble understanding why my i7 2600K is idling at 4400MHz and 1.352V but I have SpeedStep and C1E is enabled???
I just started oveclocking it and trying to figure out min voltage for the clock of 4500 MHz but first want to solve the problem of not throttling down the speed and voltage when on idle.

Its currently on 4400MHz and with blend test with prime95 the core voltage goes up to 1.384 V but after Im done testing core voltage goes down only to 1.360 V and stays there.
/edit
Just noticed that when I turn on the computer the Core Speed is 1600MHz and Core Voltage 0.994 V when idling for few minutes and after that it just goes up to 4400MHz and 1.352 V for no apparent reason and stays there.
The load is only ~27%.
I dont know why is this happening. The SpeedStep and C1E is enabled.

I do not want to set the core voltage to manual and set it constant because I want the power consuption and temp to go down when using the computer for browsing etc.
Not chasing any overclock records I just want to overclock the processor so I the proccesor dont bottleneck the GTX980 for Battlefield 1 thats coming out soon smile.gif

Please help

Im just a begginer at overclocking so any help is much appreciated. I dont know if I set anything wrong but I have read a lot of info and this seems good for what Im going for. Just want to eventually go to 4500MHz and go as low as I can with core voltage to get a stable overclock

i7 2600K
Asus P8Z68-V pro
CHIEFTEC APS-1000C
MSI GTX980
Thanks for help

Before we attempt to figure this out, I recommend going back to stock and replacing that power supply with a better one. I apologize that this is my reply, but I cannot help you overclock in good conscience knowing that this PSU is powering your computer.

You are right. I bought this PSU many years ago anyway. It was time to upgrade. I went to the store and bought CHIEFTEC
APS-1000C . I think it is sufficient for the conf. I have now. You agree?

No. I am recommending a higher quality PSU, not a bigger one. PSUs like the one you bought and like the one you have are not designed to withstand the stress of trying to keep an overclocked system stable. They deliver power that's low in quality and unstable. The more unstable the system is, the harder it is on such PSUs and the harder it is on your system because of the kind of power that the low-quality PSU is delivering.

A power supply in the 600w range of good, smooth power will suit you fine. Look at Corsair and Seasonic. They are the top two. I would show you links, but I dont know what country you're in.

The store where I bought this PSU has 750W Seasonic SS-750KM in stock. Is that good enough? Should I return this one and change it for the seasonic one?

If you're ordering locally, then it would be hard for me to help because I'd need to know their entire inventory of PSUs and the prices.

 

Can you order online? If so, then what store(s) could you order from?

 

You can't go just by brand. With all due respect to bucdan, that's bad advice because you can still end up with a low-quality PSU - especially from Corsair. You can also end up being ripped off, spending a large amount for a PSU when a much better one might be available for the same price or even lower. The PSU market is a difficult one to shop in unless you know which PSUs are good and which ones are bad.

This one 750W Seasonic SS-750KM is rated 80+ gold. Is that sufficient? Im buying loccaly the store is 500 meters from my house.
