post #7081 of 10702
I've been trying to get my rig stable again but with no luck. I've tried 3 previously saved stable setups/settings for 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7ghz but they all fail just few hours later.
Is it normal that the chip degrades so fast and needs some more vcore every week? Maybe just go with vcore auto and let it be? I got the Performance Tuning Protection Plan so I don't know.
What you think?

From my experience, its sometimes normal to see a drop of ~100 mhz as a cpu gets broken in a bit. I historically would get my best benchmarks in right after getting the cpu and i would lose that overclock being stable within a month. Shouldnt happen at voltages your profile shows tho. My 2600k did that slightly after i bought it and later on i thought it died, Perhaps, you just need to give it a 'bath' in alcohol to clean it up like i did. The 2600k actually functioned better then it ever did after i soaked it

I have no idea. I'm stable with the fast tests 1344, 1792 and 4096 but leaving prime95 on for the night surprises me with a bsod in the morning.

This brings up another question.How long do these SB chips last? I know each one is different, but how long would you expect to keep a chip when overclocked to the 4.5 area?

My chip is about 4-5 months old.

In my history i have run a few overclocks that have failed stress tests at 8 or so hour mark because i dont mind a crash or bsod in a game once in a while. If your a nutcase for absolute stability, your on the wrong platform as ECC memory is the only way to go, hence why workstations run it

I used to run like that, but rather than have BSODs, I'd just get sneaky HDD corruption. Music files that have been there for years suddenly skip around like a scratched CD, .jpgs that would fail to open, .exes that would lose their icons mysteriously, but still run fine..... I used to think it was windows being windows, but every single one of these sorts of problems vanished after I took the time to fiddle around in the BIOS and stabilise things.

What I'm trying to say is, I think these subtle instabilities cause more problems than people give them credit for, and most people seem to underestimate the greatness of a fully stable system smile.gif

Hey all. fast question.

I increased my OC to 4.6Ghz. I have LLC lv1 and have the turbo set to 250/250/250. Also have C1,C3, and C6 on.

Is 4.6Ghz @ 1.27v good? And what else can I do to tweak? I know for AMD I changed the CPU/NB and FSB a bit. But I see neither of those, are they named different?

Hey guys. Ready to try my hand at a modest 4.5GHz OC. I just need to know two things: should I use manual voltage, offset, or is it personal preference? Also, what increments in volts should I decrease the Vcore by to get closer to a cooler OC? Plus, how long should I run Prime blend tests for while attempting to lower my Vcore? There's no doubt that my final blend test will have to be 12 hours to join the club.

Check the OP's post. it's all in there.

Ok there is no traditional FSB on newer intel CPUs. BLCK replaces it and is intels quickpath interconnect technology. From what I understand you are best just leaving it alone(unless of course your trying to overclock a non K). The multiplier is king. That is a decent overclock with lower voltage. The 2500k stock voltage is 1.200. If you have a respectable cooler and case you can goto 1.35 very easily without seeing to much heat. Have you ran stability tests at that voltage? I would guess you'll get a 101 BSOD after awhile in prime95 but every chip is unique.
