Motherboard won't let me past 4.45Ghz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My stupid Asus P6T won't let me OC my WC i7 920 to more than 4.45GHZ. Adding more BLK makes the chip lagg like crazy. After spending money on good WC I get kinda upset. Is there ANYTHING I can do to make the OC over 4.45Ghz when the BLK laggs at 215? If not, do I have to spend a lot of money on a really expensive motherboard to make this work??

I kinda know the answer to this already, but doesn't hurt to ask again. (Hi Bal3)

I know what you mean. I guess it would be almost better to get a 2600k and a motherboard for that one instead hehe. I just know that I could go higher with my i7 920, as load temps @ 4.45Ghz are around 57-60.

there's more to OC'ing than load temps... most under water hit a clock/vcore/BLK wall long before they hit temp wall

The extra gains aren't needed, and probably wouldn't even be noticed. An i7 920 @ 4.45 GHz is a monster in itself. Not only is that a good clocker (well, depends more or less on the voltage supplied to it), but pretty fast as is. Any gains would be purely e-peen and could possibly speed up the death of not only the CPU, but motherboard as well.

You maybe hit a {bclock Hole} Miahallen, explains this in his 3 Step Overclocking Guide-Bloomfield & Gulftown
[ there is a phenomena known as “bclock holes” that may create confusion and frustration during this process. But if you appear to have found your limit at a much lower speed than anticipated, please consider trying a step or two higher before continuing on. A bclock hole cause’s system instability within particular bclock ranges, and going past them may allow you to regain stability.]

If you are not familiar with the guide, you can find it here..
