I'm going to try going upwards from stock this time, thanks for the quick reply.
P.S, this is my first overclock and its frustrating, but its like a fun frustrating
Ahh I get ya, the hanging in windows would have made me think unstable as it should
bsod, but it could just be a different way of your pc being unstable and not showing you in form of BSOD
As for overclocking, yeah definitely go back and put everything to stock, and then do these:
Change EPU power saving to Disable.
Change VRM Frequency to manual and type in 350 underneath.
Change cpu Current Capability to 140%.
And check your settings against these:
AI Overclocker Tuner :Manual
BCLK frequency - 100
turbo ratio - By all cores
CPU Multiplier - 33
Internal PLL Overvoltage - Disabled
Memory frequency - Auto
EPU Power saving mode - disabled
CPU Voltage - 1.20
DRAM - AUTO
VCCSA - Auto
VCCIO - Auto
CPU PLL Voltage - 1.70
PCH Voltage - Auto
CPU Spread Spectrum - Disabled
That will put you at stock, assuming your on a 2500k, if not put 34 multiplier for 2600k stock. RE PLL Overvoltage, you only turn it on for higher multipliers.
hope these help, put those settings in and then keep increasing multiplier until you can post and or it crashes and report back to us
I managed to get 4.0ghz from these stock settings.
