Thank you much for the response! I will up the LLC and volts tonight. Sometimes I forget with these chips that even a clock at 4.2Ghz is a great overclock. Hitting 4.5 or even 4.8 is phenomenal compared to stock speeds.

Is there a real good way to bench these speeds vs. stock that everyone is using? Like, once I find my stable daily OC, can I compare performance increase with a good benching software?

Thanks all!

If you look at my Prime top window, you will see the reason I scrolled it ... some kind of error message about creating a log file. I think this scrolled the starting times to where they weren't visable and I looked at it and left it where I retiled. I'm guessing and you might be able to confirm, I'm thinking I needed to run this as administrator so it could write files to disk ... correct?

Lastly, your example showed temps of 84C ... wow! I'm not sure if I'd like running that hot for hours. Is that what you'd call a suicide run?

Not sure about that but hopefully in your next run it will be fine. 84c is on the high side, however, IMHO 85c is the highest you should be going while stress testing as you'll never so those temps under general usage. Have a little read at the max safe voltage and temps section. thumb.gif

Wow.. what a *****y response. I was just trying to help you by letting you know there was a newer version of Prime95.

The 25.11 version you were using is from March 2010. The newer one is designed to test sandy bridge and uses the newer AVX instructions, so I'd trust it as a stability test a lot more than the old one.

When I ran it on one of my older 2500k's I needed more voltage, so I was just trying to give you a heads up. However, another guy with a good overclocker that I just saw yesterday didn't need any extra voltage, so I guess it just depends.

I also don't follow your logic. If I told you the older version doesn't test sandy bridge as well, how would you passing 21 hours with it mean anything? You could be stable by the old one but fail almost immediately with the new one.

Additionally, last time I checked, LinX (even the newer one with AVX) was known for being easier to pass on sandy bridge than the newer Prime95, so I don't think many people use it anymore (I never hear anyone talking about it at least). If anyone knows if this has changed with a newer LinX release, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.


Sandy bridge doesn't utilize the AVX instructions as far as I'm aware. The difference between the two are as follows:

What's New in version 26.6:
  • For rare cases where the program cannot figure out the number of cores and hyperthreading, the NumPhysicalCores option may help. See undoc.txt.
  • Faster FFT implementations are now selected for Core 2 CPUs with 1MB L2 cache or less (marketed under the Celeron and Pentium label).
  • New, slightly higher, trial factoring breakeven points.


What's New in version 26.5:
  • Minor bug fixes.
  • Starting in build 2, P-1 work will display the chance of finding a factor. The worktodo.txt line must include how_far_factored using the new syntax: Pminus1=k,b,n,c,B1,B2[,how_far_factored][,B2_start][,"factors"]
  • Starting with build 3, at startup the program tries to determine which hyperthreaded logical CPUs comprise one physical CPU. If this isn't working properly, see the AffinityScramble2 setting in undoc.txt. The previous version's AffinityScramble setting is no longer supported


Either one would suffice for stability, however it is a good idea to download the latest one. thumb.gif

Tried with the settings above and after 5 hours p95 blend it BSOD 124... I seted vcore to 1.37 and testing again atm... Is there anything else you think that needs a change except from vcore??

Thanks

So with 1.37 vcore ive tested with p95 blend for 9 hours and im stable with 70C max temps.

I think im 99% done here. The 1% is gonna be covered untill i test with linx 20 runs with maximum memory...

Any recommendation on my settings would be great.

Thanks

Change duty control to extreme, current capability to 140% (don't worry about the red) and try again. Also you could try reducing the PLL voltage, the sweet spot is somewhere around 1.5-1.7v, it will more than likely help with stability. You could also try and increase the VCCIO a little, as you RAM is at stock try and keep that value between stock and 1.125v. Make changes in the BIOS in small increments and test with prime and record your data using notepad or something.

Hope that helps and good luck thumb.gif

I ran 1344 & 1792 test for 20 minutes each and thought my chip was "stable." Yet, when I ran my 4096 test, after 7 minutes error... So I think for short testing, 4096 will give you a good idea of where your at, maybe run that for 30minutes and if you pass that, you should be able to pass a 12 hour blend...imho

Seems my i5-2500k is average... bummer, Hoping the Costa Rica batch would be a hit, so I've been told...

I'll hopefully get a 12 hour blend tonight for you guys.
Just a reference, my i5 seems stable @ 4500 @ 1.288Vcore

Appreciate the feedback. Thank you +rep.

Increase the vcore or try increasing the VCCIO and make sure RAM is set to XMP (stock)

I' ve allready tested with prime 95 blend for 9 hours, also 30mins on prime95 test 4096K with 90% of my ram and 20 pass on linx with maximum RAM used.

Here you can see the settings i used:

Multiplier: 45x
BCLK: 100
vrm freq: 350
LLC: ultra high
Intel speedstep: enabled
c1e: enabled
c3, c6: auto
CPU PLL: disabled
spread spectrum: disabled
cpu current capability: 100%
duty control: T.probe
phase control: extreme
Vcore manual: 1.37v. Now on load i get 1.360 - 1.368v and idle on 1.368v
DRAM voltage: 1.50v
DRAM timings: auto (correct seted 8-8-8-24 with manufactureres default)
DRAM frequency: 1600Mhz
VCCIO: auto (1.052v)
PLL voltage: auto (1.798v)

I cant understand why to use cpu capability on 140% and duty control to extreme? Is there any actual reason to do that? I mean it helps for stability? Since i passed all those test shall i change something now or it will screw my overclock (which looks stable)?

It's a bit like changing the VRM frequency, it's recommended to cahnge the other's like that as well. Try it out and see what happens.

I have strange bug with overclocking and Razer Lycosa keyboard.
If I set tuner to manual and BCLK to 100 then the backlight of the keyboard doesn't go on automatically. If I change the tuner to auto then the keyboard lights up like it should.

Hi guys.. first time OCer here. Read first page and everything, been trying to find a stable setting for my i5-2500k. Right now I am running into a problem with running custom tests on Prime95 for 1344 and 1792. When I enter in to use 90% of my available ram (or even smaller or larger number), my memory use caps out at like 5.2GB, even though I have 2 4GB sticks. Earlier when I was trying the same thing for 4.5GHz I was getting it to use all the memory or nearly all of it, but now I can't. Windows memory diagnostic said my memory was fine though, just now.

Damn, tried going back down to same level and still capping out at 5.5GB memory now, this is if I set my memory use in Prime to exactly the amount of memory that is free.

As a test I started up Skyrim while running Prime95 and my memory usage went up to like 6.9GB, so I guess the problem is with Prime95, or something is limiting the amount of RAM it can use?
