i7 2600 (non K) Overlclocked? or Glitch? - Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, just joined the community because I needed some help.

I purchased an ASUS P8P67 and i7 2600 (normal version - I know, stupid me...) and went onto experiment inside the bios. I knew that mine wasn't the "K" model but I wanted to see if I could overclock it anyway. I enabled the TPU and EPU switches on my board and got to work. Being the newb that I am at overclocking, I remember changing the CPU capacity to 110% and bclk/peg frequency to 110. The system posted and the clock speed reported 5.8 ghz. I started freaking out but then realized that this probably isn't real. So I reset the settings to default in the bios but still, I'm getting 5.8 ghz when I run prime 95 (according to system monitor). However, CPU-Z says I'm running at 4 ghz. In addition, CPU-Z also thinks I have the 2600K model when I don't. Please refer to the screen shot I posted for details.

How do I fix this guys? Did I really overclock my processor? or is it just a glitch? Thanks!

Glitch, believe whats on CPU-Z not Windows System Details. If it was running at that speed you would know about it .

You should just CPU-Z as it shows you your Multi x Bclk which is your Core Frequency. 39 is probably the max multi of the non-k version, but if you could get 110 bclk that would be 4.2ghz which is plenty for anything you will probably do.

I changed the bus speed to 106.0 mhz - it seems stable. I know get 4134.1 when running prime 95. Does that mean I've successfully overclocked? Besides from changing the bus speed, I've only changed the CPU capacity from 100% to 110%. Should anything else be changed?

And my final question is, is this safe? I'm running on the stock cooler. And the 5.8 GHZ on the side is kind of annoying (and worrying me at the same time). I don't want my CPU to fry.
