Had a hardware fail on the 8th thread Every other thread was fine, I didn't even get a BSOD xD, will try again tomorrow.
post #4772 of 10702
Okay, so I've been reading a lot in this thread over the last two days trying to stabilize my 2500K overclock. I only just got into overclocking this week, so I'm not too familiar with everything yet.
I managed to get it stable to 4.2GHz at 1.29v vcore and 1.709v (I don't know why my motherboard only has these weird increments for voltage) PLL passing the 1344 and 1792 FFT tests.
I followed the guide in this thread and my settings are so far the same, except that I have disabled Spread Spectrum to get 100.0MHz Bus Speed.
Once I hit a stable 4.2GHz I upped it to 4.4GHz and started increasing my vcore to get it stable. So far I've gone up to 1.35v and it still crashed after about 8 minutes of Prime95. I just can't believe it needs this much voltage just to run 4.4GHz while I'm seeing others with similar voltages do a lot more.
I tried enabling Speedstep and set the Additional Power Limits to 250 each and the Additional Turbo Voltage to +0.004v. This doesn't help me, and I still crash after around 5-8 minutes.
I also tried increasing my PLL voltage with no results.
Currently trying out different things but my knowledge is limited, so any pointers would be great!

EDIT: Running again with the same settings, but disabling Spread Spectrum (Setting Bus Speed at 99.8MHz instead of 100) seems to work, but it's clocking around 4390MHz. Maybe this is just aesthetics, but can this really be the culprit? I would like it to stay at 4400MHz because 4390MHz doesn't really qualify

danielwiley recommended me to post this here so... Here it goes:

I'm relative new to OC and I've been reading tons of topics on this site about it so I decided to make one of my own and see if anyone may help me clear out any mistakes I might be doing.

My system is as follows:
i7 2600k cpu
Maximus Gene IV Z
Hyper 212+ cooler
Sapphire 6870 gpu
Antec EW 650w psu
2x Kingston 4gb 1600mhz

I'm trying to get a OC to 4.5ghz. I prefer Offset mode over manual since it just makes more sense to me (as far as degradation of cpu goes). Even though I plan to game and render on this system, it is most likely it will sit at idle most time when doing stuff like browsing/skyping/listening to music/playing Blizzard games(those don't require much power). So with this in mind I want it OC'ed with Offset.

Doing some testing with prime 95 I was able to figure our my stock VID at 3.4ghz (with turbo off) is 1.236* at idle and 1.241* at load.

I've been attempting 4.5ghz with offset and both LLC on/off (off/0%, on/50%/75%/100%). C1 is enabled, c3 report and c6 report is disable and package c state limit is set to no limit always. Using T. Probe or Extreme Vcore PWM mode setting. Vcore Phase always at optimized. I haven't touch PLL voltage (auto). When trying offset mode at - 0.05v I get prime95 blend to run for an hour at 1.336v and get a BSOD 0x00000124. Then I tried -0.025 to get 1.361v and after an hour it BSOD'ed 0x00000124 again.

I feel going for higher seems too much, specially for a mild OC like 4.5ghz. Another user has gotten 4.5ghz offset with 1.28v! I know each processor is different, but i think a .1v difference (at this rate) is too much.


*VID I got from Core Temp, the other v's I got them from CPU-Z

Anyone has any suggestions?

Will I need to re-run my stability testing for 12 hrs @ 95%+ RAM usage, or will I be find just to toss it in and run with it?
Nope not really it should be fine, you might have to increase the vccio and that's pretty much it.

Now i think everything is sorted.
Could you use OCN attachment method please, hit the advanced button next to quick reply and you should be presented with a new page which will allow you to add the pics. Thanks

Unfortunatly not all chips are made the same, therefore some will overclock better than other's with low voltage. Continue increasing the vcore, check out the guide I ahve posted in the OP for more info.

I will highly recommend you to use manual first to 'find' your overclock, it's slightly more easier to work with. Once you have determined the correct votlage for a specific overclock you can change to offset. One more thing the VID changes with the multiplier so that's why it can get a littel tricky. As I mentioned above, check out the guide I posted in the OP, it'll help you on your way

^^ I see a number of things that you could do differently.

Try this first and see how far you get, just a note, use manual voltage first then we can go onto offset once you have 'found' your desired overclock:


Here's my quick little sandy guide:

Quote:
The only things will that will require multiple changes are the vccio (VTT), PLL voltage and vcore, refer to this:

Set the whole thing to stock and start again. This time only change the RAM to XMP (STOCK) and run prime blend for a few mintues to see that your CPU is functioning properly.

Then comes the task of determining the voltage for the multiplier, but that comes after you find the correct LLC setting for your mobo. 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 the LLC, now depending on high your mobo works it could like so: 1 being the highest LLC and 5 being the lowest and vice versa. The objective is to keep the voltage under load as controllable as possible without it letting it spike. These LLC settings will be different amongst mobo's. For Asus mobo's the Ultra high (75%) LLC seems to work best.


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 [B] (Scroll down or go to sandy stable club about PLL info). 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 disrupts the bclk in cpu-z then just disable it.

Additional settings that you need to change from the get go, but won't need to be changed afterwards:


Can be found under advanced settings/cpu configuration:

Quote:
For Asus Mobo's
CPU Current Capability - 140%
Phase and Duty Control - Extreme
EPU Power saving - Disabled
VRM Frequency - Manual - 350
Quote:
For Asrock Mobo's
Turbo Boost Power - Manual
Short Duration Power Limit - 250
Long Duration Power Limit - 250
Core current Limit - 250
Quote:
For Biostar Mobo's
CPU Core Current max (AMP) - 150
Power Limit Value 1 & 2 - 200
Quote:
For Zotac Mobo's
Turbo Boost Power Max - 250
Turbo Boost Short Power Max - 250
IA Core current (AMP) - 200
Quote:
For Gigabyte Mobo's
Turbo Power Limit - 200
Quote:
For MSI Mobo's
Short Duration Power Limit- 250
Long Duration Power Limit - 250
Overvoltage is only needed when a particular multi (usually the high ones) doesn't boot into windows.

This should be a stepping stone to get your rig stable. With those settings you will eventually get to the point where you're stable.

Set the multi to 45 and the vcore to 1.25v and increase the vcore each time after you stress test, run a quick custom prime with these FFTs (1344 & 1792) like THIS and go back and change the vcore accordingly, bump it by one not big jumps and that goes for PLL and VCCIO (VTT) and VCORE!!!

Work your way up from there, increase multi, test with prime, if it fails up vcore, if not up the multi. Until you are satisfied with the temps and it is stable then continue upping the vcore to stabalise.


Just a note: The custom FFT's are not that consistant, making them not all that reliable, however if it works for you, then that's great. What I mean by inconsistant, is that it may pass once with the same settings but may fail the exact same run second time round. In that instance I will recommend you to run a standard blend test to find your overclock, using intervals of 15/30mins. This duration will increase when you're nearing stability. This is a lenthy process, one that takes time and patience, make sure your up to the task

Head over to the Sandy Stable Club for more info and tips


Here are the additionl info regarding PLL voltage, VCCIO and VCCSA: READ THIS & THIS

For the last 10days or so I tried messing around with the PLL, I dropped it down to 1.4v and started going up, I kept on receiving the Error 124 up until I reached 1.55v and it passed both the 1344 and 1792 test along with a few hours of prime blend. My sweet spot is at 1.55v.


One more thing, BSOD Error code 101 is usually refered to the vcore being too low, Error 124 can also be vcore, VTT (VCCIO) or even PLL voltage being to high or too low.


Read this thoroughly and it should help you

EDIT:

If you're continuusly recieving a 124 bsod during Prime or idle, click on the link labled below in my sig, "BSOD 124 on Sandy?"; you'll find further info and help on there.

munaim1 have any idea why disabling Spread Spectrum is making me fail anything higher than 4.2? Enabling it seems to lower my bclk in cpu-z to 99.8MHz which is kind of annoying..

Have you set the bus speed to 100? if it helps your stability then I say leave it on, have you also updated to the latest bios? If not head over to the Asrock official thread (link should be in the OP) and see what info you can find. To me it just sounds like you need more vcore.
