The ULTIMATE Sandy Bridge OC Guide + P67A-UD7 Performance Review - Page 17

post #161 of 713
Sin, thanks much for the review on this mobo , it has been VERY helpful in exploring these new motherboards from gigabyte paired with the i72600k. Although without a doubt this guide has been so helpful i am having some trouble with over clocking this chip. Some insight from you would be invaluable, i just dropped a lot of cash on this new system and want to make sure i get my money's worth so i don't go crazy and end up crying in a corner or in the shower !
Here is a bit about the new system that aside from OCing is running very stable.

System info pertinent to Ocing
Case-HAF X 942
CPU-i7 2600k
Heatsink- Thermaltake Frio
Thermal compound- Arctic silver 5
RAM-Patriot 2x4gig sticks (stock voltages and timings)
mobo-GA-P67A-UD7
PSU-cougar 1000w
MOBO info and specs
C1E-DISABLED
EIST-DISABLED
C3,C6 STATES-DISABLED
CPU THERMAL MONITOR-DISABLED
BIOS VERSION-F7A
VCORE-AUTO
INTERNAL CPU PLL OVERVOLTAGE-ENABLED
REAL TIME RATIO CHANGE-DISABLED
INTEL TURBO BOOST TECH-DISABLED

I know in your guide you said disabling/enabling the last two would not affect OCing ability so for controls sake i disabled them. I ultimately would like to go as high on air as the chip will allow, currently i have the chip at the stock multiplier at x34. Would a good jumping off point for testing and increasing the multiplier be the 4.1 setting in Easy tune 6? My goal is a prime95 stable OC of 4.6 or above.

Sin did you see anything wrong with this above? Is there an issue with the numbers for cores 3 and 4 at a stock setting? I did order in the coolermaster 200mm big fan and a 140mm 90 cfm fan for the rear to help out on the cooling.

You say not to pass 80c on real temp. Im only looking to be in the 4.5 range for 24/7 use. Whats a good temp to shoot for under prime95 fft large? Also is 15 minutes a good test time or go 30 for a stable test?

Sorry to pound you with questions sin. I just want to proceed in the right direction and not burn this chip up first oc.

Just use BIOS, not easytune 6, set 46x multiplier, turn off all power saving features, like EIST, C1E, and C3+C6 states. First enable realtime ratio change in OS, don't touch votlages, reboot after setting ratio to 46x, see what vcore it provides you. If that fails, set a 1.35vcore, then play around with that number, do not touch any other voltages nor touch the RAM. If that still fails, post back.

I think i said 80c? just keep it under 90c when running prime 95, and you want to run prime95 for hours on end, because it can error or crash a few hours into it. If you want 100% stability you need to test like that, for just simple everyday stability you can test for an hour.

Holy crap your telling me on real temp that as long as it's under 90c for each core it's fine? I thought 80c sounded high but 90c? Am I looking at a wrong temp reading some where?

no you understand correctly, 90c is where thermal throttling starts, these chips can handle heat, its just best not to get them hot. These chips shut themselves down or down clock if htey get too hot. 80C is max id do with 24/7.

Sin,

I did exactly what you said and i was actually able to boot into os with that multiplier, in the past i would get a bios error and have to reinstall to the latest version i have now, redo settings etc. Not this time! From what i remember, in the past i did not enable "INTERNAL CPU PLL OVERVOLTAGE" this may be the reason i had more success this time ?

with vcore on auto it shows the vcore at 1.355, is it safe to say i can throw some OCCT or prime95 at the thing now ?

Sin,

Here is a little update , wish it was better news. Although i was able to boot into OS just fine, i ran OCCT just the 1 hour default test on medium data set and ...well good news i didnt get a BSOD , or reboot , BUT the test was only able to run for 1 minute and 4 seconds. Any advice ?

Guys not trying to hijack but I value this forum thread very much as well as community. Could I acheive 5.5Ghz with Asrock Extreme 6 or should I buy the UD7?

Having difficulty finding info on ASRock users or just advice on which to buy in general for extreme OC abilities. Thank you.

increase use LLC level1 first, then Level2 if that is unsuccessful, also increase vcore if that doesn't work.. I would say 1.45v is fine for 24/7 as your max vcore. if your cooler can keep you chip under 80c.

If you have a chip that can do 5.5ghz i would get the UD7 lol. No offense to asrock but i don't see their boards OCing that well at all i knw a lot of people with UD7s that have hit 5.7+ghz, using blck to achieve more than 57x becuase that is the max multiplier. I doubt any 2600K you buy will do 5.5ghz just becuase a lot of people have good chips and a lot have bad chips.

I am not familiar with the terms or settings you described, "increase use LLC level1 first, then Level2 if that is unsuccessful," What is LLC level1 and Level2 ?

Actually i figured it out , "LOAD LINE CALIBRATION" i set it to lvl1 when should i set it to lvl2 ? My first time trying stress testing with load line level 1 is now, with my vcore at 1.370. We will see how this goes and i will report back.

Previous to using LLC level 1 , OCCT has been failing at around the 1minute and some change mark, 1.370 failed but did not give me BSOD, the previous vcore at 1.365 gave me a BSOD almost immediately.

I will try 1.370 with LLC level 1 and see if i get any progress.

On second though , Sin, should i enable LLC 1 and start back at 1.355v? Or vcore on auto possibly ? Or just go on ahead with current vcore of 1.370 and above?
