Nvidia users read my review thread in my sig, you can find it under here: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia-driv...ew-latest.html

I recommend running 266.58 for SLI and 270.61 for single cards.

Could my overclocking failures be coming from the fact that I have a Stepping of d2 instead of d1?

no because I too have a d2 stepping. All that is required is to go through the many pages of this thread for tips and you'll get there eventually.

I feel as though I literally tried everything, I even followed what you posted and still just no luck at all.

This is what I posted back from page 277:

Then comes the task of determinning the voltage for the multiplier, but that comes after you find the correct LLC setting for your mobo. Don't worry about it bsoding, what you want to do is set the LLC to the one that is closet to what you set it to when the cpu is under load, so for example if you set 1.35v and under load it's 1.31v and that's level 3 then you may have to increase to aroudn level 5. The objective is to keep the voltage under load as controllable as possible without it letting it spike.

Then it comes to that task of finding the actual voltage for the overclock, however before we get to that, I would advise you to reduce PLL voltage to 1.7v. then set the vcore manually to 1.25v, Leave C1E and Speedsteep enabled and run C3 and C6 on Auto if you can, if not leave them enabled. Also leave Spread spectrum enabled, if you find that it disrutps the bclk in cpu-s then just disable it. This should be a stepping stone to get your rig stable. with those settings you will eventually get to the point where your stable. Set the multi to 45 and the vcore to 1.25v and increase the vcore as you stress test, prime blend 1344FFT custom with 1min each cycle and go back and change the vcore accordingly, bump it by one not big jumps!!!


Hope that helps

XMP is a memory profile that's built in to the RAM, so if you select XMP, it will by defauly select the timings and votlage for your RAM and you should still be able to alter the PCU settings. Run XMP and you will be fine with changing everything else.

EDIT:
Alternativly you could run a custom blend for a really good quick stability test between bios changes, that would be: 1344 FTT and 1792 FFT 1min each cycle and 90% of your available RAM, run each of those ffts for 15mins between any changes in the bios and when your done with your overclock, test it with a standard blend test or standard custom test, lol it gets confusing even for me lol.


Do what he said regarding PLL but don't jump straight to 1.31v gradually up the vcore as you increase the multi and again post your other settings.
Asu you can see, it is a gradual process, one that takes time, so you can't really say that you have tried everything. Follow these instructions and you'll be fine.

What about the new driver 280.26? Is it any good?

Alrite, but one quick thing I want to clarify. So, lets say at stock my voltage is at 1.33volts. I want to get it so that while under load, my LLC keeps my voltage ~ 1.33volts correct? Is that the whole point of that step? to make load an idle as equal as possible through LLC?

LLC = Load Line Calibration

It is there to compensate the vdroop. Vdroop is when you set the voltage in the bios and when the cpu is under load the voltage is lower. The different settings of LLC can ensure that the voltage remains as close to what you set it in the bios under full load. That basically means that, for example, LLC level 2 = BIOS voltage 1.35 and under load = 1.33v therefore level 3 might be better. You want to set an LLC settings where the voltage is lower but as close as possbile so that you don't get voltage spikes which 'can' be dangerous.

meh... havn't tested it out yet, but I don't think I will be, heard far to many complaints about them in actual gaming.



Anyways back on topic





Spreadsheet Suggestion

I will be adding a benchmark section very soon, this should add a little competition and is going to be open for everyone. It will mainly consist of non 3d benchmarking just raw processor power. Sisoftware Sandra will be used and the main four will be Processor Arithmetic, Processor Multi-Media, Multi-Core efficiency and Cryptography. Don't worry it will be under 2 sections, one for the 2600k and the other for the 2500k, so it should be fair!!!

Anyways keep an eye out and hopefully this should be fun, we deserve this because as most of you guys in here will know, it's actually quite a daunting task stabalizing an overclock. By the way it will have a scoring system to make it more interesting, a bit of healthy competition is always nice
