OCing (i7-2600k + ASUS P8P67 DELUXE)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I just recently built a desktop around the i7-2600k CPU, and I would love to have some advice on the best way to overclock it. My motherboard is the ASUS P8P67 DELUXE, and I have ample air cooling (a Coolermaster 212+ with 2 120mm fans, as well as many case fans).
I am very new to the overclocking scene, so any help you can provide would be great.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Help would be wonderful. Thus far, everything I try ends up either not POSTing or it just reverts to factory settings. Again, I have the ASUS P8P67 DELUXE with the EFI BIOS, so I might just be getting confused with the format.

Thanks.

Thanks puffs; so far, I am now able to OC a small amount. I was able to get to 4.4 without a problem, but couldn't find a good voltage for anything over that. I tried 1.47V at 99.8 B:CK/50 multi, and it crashed/restarted as soon as I put it under load.

Update: So far I have been able to get to 4.7 GHz stable (at 1.470v), and am currently running at 4.450 GHz; I could boot into Win7 at 5 GHz and 1.500v, but couldn't get through one Super Pi 1M run before it crashed.

Have you made sure you have the latest bios version? Made a world of difference for me going to the newest beta version.

Yeah, that was one of the first things I did. It just seems to not like more voltage, or maybe I am not configuring it correctly.
