The i5-760 OC Club - Page 143

post #1421 of 1922
Hey all! I'm posting this so this forum will show in the top on my "subscriptions" page. I'm in the market for a i5-760 to dedicate to folding in Team Competition in the Wildcard category. I'm currently running a Q9550 and we're in first place in Div.II which will allow us to move up to Div.I. Therefore, to be competitive, I'm going to build a new system. Donkey1514 has been helping me out a BUNCH on this endeavor, but being rather new to overclocking I'm gonna' need all the help I can get! I look forward to joining the i-5 Club!

If you want to be at the top of the Wildcard you're going to need at least 16K PPD. Depending on the WU's the 460s and 465s will beat my i5 760 which is running ubuntu in a vm at 4.169. I get right around 16K PPD with that. Had a bit of an issue hence why I'm no longer in the top two.

Yea, I know! I actually looked into getting into GPU folding, but there apparently isn't a lot of challenge to clocking a graphics card and makin' it run. Where's the thrill! I enjoy clocking a processor and multiple BSOD's and all the other headaches that go along with it. That's what makes it fun! I've spent considerable and enjoyable time clocking my 9550. Proof of that is in my position in Wildcard. So now I have three choices: stay with my 9550 and know I'm not gonna' keep up, buy a graphics card and get into GPU folding, or set up a new rig and spend lots of time clocking it to the max and sweating over it and getting up in the middle of the night to make sure all is well. I choose the latter! At least right now. I'm still tryin' to get the components at a decent price, so that may change. But if I have it my way I WILL go the i5-760 route.

Got a 760 on a P7H55M/USB OC'ed to 3.0 @ 1.10V
Using CoolerMaster GeminII M4 with AVC DS12025B12H fan.

Temps are pretty bad (touching 70+ on IBT) given the crappy cooler, but I guess this should be safe for 5years + of usage?

Just started OC'ng for the first time. I am using this guide. http://www.overclockers.com/3-step-guide-overclock-core-i3-i5-i7/

In this guide he says raise cpu vtt to +0.2
Would that mean a standard vtt of 1.1 would raise to 1.3? This seems like it should be common sense but every time I change vtt my voltage is automatically locked in at 1.4v which seems way too high

I'm so lost. My head is so full of information and I feel like a moron right now lol wheee.gif
post #1426 of 1922
Alright. I figured everything out and I think I have a good OC here..... what do you guys think? I just want to make sure no one is like OMG YOUR PC IS GOING TO EXPLODE doh.gif
Everything seems to be stable after a few stability tests and I do plan to do one overnight tonight as well but I want to make sure everything looks good first. Also, would it be safe to go ahead and up my RAM multiplier now? The guide I was using told me to turn it down at first till I got my CPU figured out first.

I guess I'm the last i5 760 owner on the planet specool.gif lol
post #1428 of 1922
Ha, I still have mine but it's sort of been in the set it and forget about it mode for quite awhile now. smile.gif

I wrote a fairly simple guide for overclocking these things a long time ago you should check that out. http://www.overclock.net/t/858385/the-i5-760-oc-club/0_20#post_11209942
Looks like you are on the right page though. Can't answer about your VTT acting funny. Might just be something board specific not allowing complete control and just jumping you between certain preset points.
And ya get it somewhat stable first before raising the memory frequency up. Just makes it easier by isolating different parts of the overclock.

Awesome thanks for the response and the link! I figured my vtt out. It was set to auto and always raised to 1.4 if I adjusted any voltages up. I turned off the auto setting and now it is fine. Also if I feel like I want to go higher do I need to start over so to speak, or can I just up the base clock and/or voltage? The reason I ask is because the guide I used told me to set a target and keep going till it's stable but I have reached my target and I'm no longer content tongue.gif I mean I know I start with a low multiplier first but mine is almost maxed at this point. If I get a blue screen in the future does that mean I need more voltage or could that mean something else?

well, my i5 died a rather horrific death two days ago. During a lap, it either got zapped or shorted out from metallic particles.

I'll be on an ITX rig with an i3 2120 for the next little while. In a few months time, it'll be an i5 3570k
