Overclocking my intel i5 6600k (OCer in training)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello Dear Overclockers!!

First of all: my english is not very good.. its ok and i hope you all understand what i whrite smile.gif

I want to Overclock my i5 6600k to 5GHz stable for gaming/ editing and rendering, but i am kinda stuck at 4.7/ 4.8 GHZ.
i managed to get my i5 clocked to 4.7 stable, but when clocking to 4.8 i dont get any higher score in real bench or cinebench. i also discovered some mouse lags in idle, it just wont move for aboout 20 seconds wile everything seems to work without problems.

Thats the System i work with:
Asus maximus viii formula (i actually use the build in ek waterblocks to cool down the powerfaces)
intel i5 6600k
2x8gb kingston hyper x fury 2133mhz ddr4
asus gtx 1080 with oc to 1972MHz
corsair 120gb ssd
seagate 1tb hhd
corsair rm1000i 1000w 80plus gold power supply
corsair h100i aio water cooling loop with 2 120mm rad

this system will get a complete makeover including new motherboard, new cpu, new ram and either a 2nd gtx 1080 or i will upgrade to 2 gtx titan xp 2017, also the cpu water cooling loop will be replaced with either a complete custom loop by ekwb or if i manage to build one an Sub Zero exchange cooling system

the settings i already made:

i set the oc profile to xmp wich sets my ram clock to 2133mhz (my ram is advertised to auto oc to 2666 mhz but does it really auto oc to it under xmp?)
i left the bclk at 100mhz
the multiplicator is set to 47
vcore is set to adaptive mode (1.38v)
intel system agent v was set to 1.02v

to get a more or less stable clock of 4.8 ghz i need to set the vcore to at least 1.43v wich is (in my opinion) a really big step but it seems like i am not the only one with that problem.

So guys i need your help to get a much stabler clock and hopefully a slightely higher clockrate too, but i really dont know that much about overclocking atm. i need some help to understand all the bios features because i want to get some real world knowledge in OC. all the tutorials focus on the same settings but dont go deeper in the thematic and dont provide "real knowledge"

if someone could answer me all the questions i have that would be really awesome..

I can tell you that if you are needing 1.43v to get 4.8GHz that it is extremely unlikely that you will get 5GHz out of that chip. You are already very near the maximum recommended voltage (1.45v). And since it goes from 1.38v at 4.7GHz to 1.43v at 4.8Ghz, an extra 0.02v isn't going to get you 200MHz.

Even the best water cooling system in the world isn't likely to get you to 5GHz with that chip, as the limiter is voltage not temperature.

XMP won't auto-overclock your RAM. It will attempt to get your RAM to work at its rated timings -- which in your case it already is. Your RAM is rated at 2133 and that's what XMP will give you. You will need to overclock it manually to get any higher than 2133, and that's not guaranteed.

Just going by what you mention in your post, I would recommend setting your sights on 4.7GHz and making sure that's fully stable as your everyday overclock setting. Then you can concentrate on trying to overclock your RAM.

A lot of 6600K's don't get to 5 GHz. The one I had only did 4.7 at 1.488v load with a custom loop and a 360mm cooling that small i5.

If you can keep 4.8GHz at 1.43v stable and cool that's most likely all you'll get.

thanks for the answers guys!! it seems like i need to accept the 4.8 border wink.gif

but i dont have any experience in ram oc. i know some basic stuff but i like to understand rsm timing and how to increase/ can i increase ram timing???

sidequestion: i am upgrading my rig, what cpu should i go for?? money is not the problem, i thought about an intel i7 extreme but what cpu has the best performamce? its not like i need such a fast cpu but i want to ^^

sorry for bad english by the way tongue.gif

If you don't really care about cost, deck yourself a Ryzen 1800X system.

yes i already thought about changing back to amd but i am also looking at the i7-6950X. i really dont know what heart will beat in my new system.
Back to tweaking:
how can i increase my benchmark scores when i am stuck at 4.8ghz? i havent touched the cache yet but as much as i know it wont get much higher scores by oc the cache?
post #7 of 11
Once you have tweaked the hardware (CPU, RAM, GPU) to the maximum, about the only thing you can do is optimize Windows by eliminating all of the unnecessary processes running in the background.

And no, you won't get much by increasing the cache speed. Memory/cache benchmarks would show improvement, but gaming wouldn't.

For the Skylake K's, my firsthand experience comes with the 6700K.

I would think that 5.0 Ghz is too ambitious, even for my 6700 as opposed to the 6600K.

I would even say that for a water-cooled system. I say it specifically for people who are wary of voltage and shortened processor life from electro-migration. My processor was binned by Silicon Lottery (for a price) to clock at 4.8 Ghz and 1.424V. I won't push it that far, and if I used a dual-fan 240mm radiator in a mainstream watercooling configuration, it wouldn't help matters. Under that scenario, it would still heat up to north of 82+C where the temperature might begin to cause instability. You could, of course, de-lid the processor and then re-lid it with CLU -- a service Silly Lots provides for $50. You could also do it yourself with a tool called "Rocket." That could change the equation by 12C or even a bit more.

Correct anything I say -- but my best reckoning of the history has Intel discontinuing a "safe maximum voltage" spec after Nehalem.

With Skylake, they issued some statement in print, observing that the processor was both "temperature-sensitive" but more resilient to voltage effects.

A survey of earlier discussions around a sample of forums might suggest that motherboards of various manufacture provided stock "Auto" settings that would volt these chips under maximum load to 1.40V, whether it was needed or not (and it isn't.) "Board partners" communicate with Intel. And they want their boards to run properly with ANY CPU from the processor-line that fits in the socket, avoiding RMA costs.

Assume there is a statistical distribution of performance around any given point where stability is likely for a given Ghz-speed or multiplier setting. So there is an average in that distribution where you'd expect the processor to run properly at the given speed. A schedule of such average expectations for 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 etc. might be slightly different between an i5-6600K and an i7-6700K.

But here is what the 6700K offers me: 1.282V for 4.5; 1.355V for 4.6; 1.408V for 4.7; 1.424V for 4.8.

My own board -- a Sabertooth Z170 S -- was shipped to choose an "Auto" LLC setting at the very middle of the range, or if I remember, "5." So fixing it at that setting leaves just a few millivolts of vDroop for a fairly high overclock.

Only from my personal experience with this particular processor, I see that my "schedule" is dependable if adjustments are made assuring those voltages at the absolutely most severe stress-tests like Prime95 or LinX. the monitored voltages will be a little higher for lighter loading.

As informative as I've tried to be with this, my main point follow: I am absolutely positively NOT going to volt this chip beyond 1.424V VID and 1.408V VCORE as I described. You can do it, but I think my self-imposed limitation is good for me.

So whatever happens with temperatures -- 4.7 is the end of my OC'ing project for this system.

Now I will say that you can "get to" 4.8, 4.9, 5.0. Remember I mentioned a statistical range of stability for a batch of CPUs run at some speed. But it depends on how you stress them as to whether they will pass or fail. You might boot Windows and even run ROG RealBench or AIDA64 Stress test at the higher speeds with voltages below any in that schedule above. You might even feel comfortable with a sense of stability.

I'll just recall Dirty Harry's remark to the bad guy on the pier at the end of the movie: "Do you feel lucky? Well -- do you -- punk?!"

You won't be a punk for walking on the wild side with your OC settings, but I'm just sayin' . . . . .

Thanks @BonzaiDuck for your informations! i discovered nearly the same voltage jumps while overclocking like you! i think my max core voltage would be 1.44v, i am currently working on a SubZero cooling system for my rig. CPU Lifespan is nothing i matter about at all cause if its broken i will get a new one, its that simple.

After some tweaking last night i managed do rise my real bench score from ~89000 to ~106000 (i also closed all the monitoring tools i ran in background and some other programms like rainmeter and razer synapse).

Now i want to focus the 120000 score.. might be pretty hard.. but we will see in a few hours. its 09:00 am in austria atm and i am home at 14:00 pm, ready for Tweaking. i managed to get a Asus ROG OC Panel. Dont know if its useful or not but lets see how it does today smile.gif

i am going to oc each core seperate now. 4.8 ghz were pretty solid and with some fan and pump adjustments the cpu reaches a max temp of 78° celsius. maybe i can get one or two cores to 4.9 stable too.

Yesterday was a really awesome day, my rig did the 24h benchmark loop without any problems. there were some temp spikes to 82° celsius but only 3 or 4. i also managed to get another i5 6600k which i am going to oc too today but in a different system using a maximus viii hero with one 16gb ddr4 kingston hyper x fury 2133 mhz and a gtx titan x. lets see how it does smile.gif

okay guys i got my cpu running at 4.8ghz with 1.4v adaptive corev and cpu cache ratio 45, intel system agent voltage on 1.03v

as you can see my realbench score is on 111k and i am pretty happy with it. a 3h stresstest was no problem with a max temp of 82 degrees celsius but i discover some random crazy mouse movements sometimes. any ideas how to stabilize my system?
