Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 149

post #1481 of 3000
Its very weird, it seems like everyone is having problems with there Motherboards. I have got my i5-2500k to 5.1ghz about 8 days ago, it ran prime95 for 3 days without a crash, and didn't exceed 48c the entire time. I just when I did a fresh install updated all the drivers. My memory and GTX 460's are water cooled on their own loop. and the i5 is on a H50. My computer has been online the entire time, speedstep is off, and its running at 5.1ghz constantly for 7 days now, and hasn't crashed. No cold boots, no random shutdowns, no problems.

Is it possible I just got a good Board and Good CPU?

What is weird is that you wonder why everything is going well xD

IMO I think that the problem are exaggerated because most people that don't have problem don't post here to ask question. Then we only see the post that ppl that are in trouble so we suddently think that everyone are. Some don't like that their CPU can't reach 4.8 ghz too and wonder why their board is not working right. Some are still inexperimented with oc too. Anyway great OC at 5.1 GHz.

So I went through the RMA process with newegg and got the new p8p67 pro installed this morning. Everything was running pretty well on the old one, but didn't want to run into problems in the future.

I've got the new one in now and it's started up just fine... it auto-installed some drivers and restarted a couple times. Should I need to do anything else or am I good to go now?

Yeah i agree he he , it seems people also only post here when they are extremely aggravated and cant fix the problem so every post seems problematic. I am pretty much in heaven at the moment , all of my testing has been going really smooth with my sabertooth p67, like night and day when comparing the problems i went through with the UD7 though.....

Also a growing cry baby complaint is "my chip cant run X multi" which ends up upon further dissection being "my chip cant run X multi on X voltage because i don't want to go over X voltage" anyone's chip can more than likely run a 5Ghz multi but most people will hold back because they are scared to up that voltage, which is understandable but honestly don't cry when people suggest to raise the voltages, THIS IS OCN! he he

If you cant afford OCing then don't cry when your chip wont peform the way you want it to!

Why is it that I can run 4.7ghz in offset mode using .060 (Reads 1.320 - 1.328v when running prime95 small ffts) but it BSODs when I run manual voltage of 1.350 after the first iteration of small ffts for the same 4.7ghz??

Temps seem to be a bit lower using prime95 for some reason.

I'm running LLC regular and offset 0.060 for 1.296v on load and around 1.080 on idle. Trying 4.4GHz and working my way up again.
Did you try ATB?

Very nice indeed. I also have a H50. I tried oc'ing my new 2500k today and I got to 5.1GHz at 1.43v but it would crash in a p95 blend after a minute, I think I need to up the vcore more (though interestingly I have the same batch no. that guys got a 5+oc on with less than 1.4v.). But the thing that is keeping me from upping the voltage is that my temps reach low to mid 80 degrees C after that minute of blending.

If you don't mind will you please elaborate on your setup and how you achieved it. Thanks!
