The M4E is actually around £270 which is $434 CDN

Im in the ripoff capital of the world lol so £225 is actually a bargain for the M4E

Thanks a lot for all the help and add me to that list please!

Thanks bud, I'm heading out now, I'll add you in the evening sometime. Thanks for contributing to the club

I currently have these settings on auto.

I would love to get to around 4.7 - 4.8
Read the OP, all the info is available there, if you have any questions after that please freee to post it here.

It seems however that when i disable spread spectrum i run into a problem.. and i get 124 bsod almost exactly at 58 mins into prime..

turning it of seems to improve the stability again.. where should i look first ?

my first hunch is vtt so i set that back to auto to just see if it will improve anything because i had it quite low at 0.9 but i might be wrong ?... I didnt fiddle with the pll yet , because with that it passed 12 hours custom blend, so i dont think my issue lies there..

Edit two.. I did enable PLL overvoltage to see if that helped btw. Cstates are on auto/enabled

Its the system in my rig with an 1.00 bios the 1.10 is just a mouse patch. But maybe other p67 owners can chime in about that ?,
Any pointers would be greatly appriciated
Could you post screenshot's of your BIOS please, more specifially the settings that you used to achieve stability.

Thanks

(had to take pictures , bios didnt see flash drive)



This morning i didnt have all the time to check. but i found something i missed earlier in dram settings.. mhz was on auto saying my memory was 1333while it is 1600. Im guessing that isnt helping the process either..

Ive redone that setting now to see how that goes.. Any tips are still greatly appriciated

edit hm must have screwed a save up, my vtt was 0.986 according to what i penned down the old fashioned way

Correct, it won't help Vcore but it should help lower temps depending on what you're coming from.

I also am using my old Thermalright Ultra 120 from my p35 build. I got the BTK kid from frozencpu and it was soooo much easier to install this time around then with the old brackets. I get about 35-40c idle temps at 1.335v (fixed voltage for now). It's not great, but I also don't have any side or intake case fans, just CPU fan and an exhaust fan.

Here we go. Pushed it to 4.5ghz last night. Did some blitz 1344 and 1792 FFT's 20mins each until I reached what I think is my max vcore for 4.5ghz stable. Did the obvious afterwards and ran prime95 blend for the night.

1.368Vcore load
4.5ghz
13hr+ stable

The 2nd pic just shows the discrepancy between realtemp and prime95, by 30 mins. IIRC, i accidentally forgot to reset realtemp after running a 1792 FTT so I hope this submission is still good.

My idle vcore fluctuates between 1.380V and 1.392V (see 2nd pic) while at load, it is 1.368. That seems like a huge margin.

I have the following settings inputted in the BIOS:

1.33V Vcore
1.12V QPI/VTT
1.71V CPU PLL
LLC Level 6

Since it is 12+hr stable at 1.368 Vcore, i'll try to lower the idle voltage by playing with LLC levels and CPU PLL (+/-) correct? Unless ofc there is another way.

Edit: Oh yeah, about the new Z68X boards for Gigabyte, I found a post in the gigabyte forums regarding cpu-z reading QPI/VTT voltage instead of Vcore. Those users affected should download 1.58.5+ Beta. Check here for more info

Wow bud! I see you've ordered a Asus Maximus IV Extreme Probably one of the best/If not THE best Sandybridge board out there

Looking forward to seeing what you can accomplish with that board and you're golden 2500K

Only 2 of my cores ever hit 80 at 4.7. The other 2 always stay below 75. I am happy with these results. I will have a thermalright true soon enough just to test out and see if temps get any better. Making the finishing touches on vcore.

Also set the RAM to XMP and that should do the trick and set your RAM to stock settings.

Could you please add the pic as an attachment. Thanks.

Your BIOS settings look fine, I would maybe start playing with the VTT and PLL and see if you can drop those further and that's pretty much it, you seem to have a good stable setting.

LOL finally lol I should probably get it tomorrow, however my case arrives on Monday so will have to wait until then, I'm little busy during the weekend anyway so it's fine. I should be up and running by Wed/Thu.

It looks like I found my stable point. I am at 4.7 with 1.37 in the bios. During prime 95 testing it seems to stay at a constant 1.352 which is awesome. I am happy with the voltage actually used rather than what is set.

Ill be saving my profile in the bios and writing down all the settings and will see if I can drop pll anymore. If I can the overclocking will continue. Depending on my pll testing, I should be able to throw up a 12 hour run with the proper software running soon.

Also, max temps during prime 95 (which are never hit when stressing with linx):

76-83-82-77. Maybe the True that I will have the chance to test can drop these a little, although, that isn't too bad for a 4.7 clock.

I will be sure to post all my bios settings as well when I submit my run.

It should also be noted that during overclocking, I had my air conditioner set to about 73/74, which is about 5 degrees higher than I normally keep it. During the winter I always open my window.

lol Go to this page in the BIOS and set the Auto set the the profile accordingly to the stock settings of your RAM:

You certainly know how to overclock, keep up the good work!!!
