Also remember, don't change anything that you dont know about, you will easily break something, the first page is good information source like this whole OCN smile.gif

Thanks bro!

hey all, been reading the threads on here and I have to say, great info! you guys really seem to be on top of helping everyone out smile.gif

That being said, I have been working on OC'ing my i5 2500k, and believe I have achieved 4.5ghz stable at 1.320v. I ran the custom blend tests, and it passed, then I ran a 16+ hour prime blend test, no failed workers or bsod's biggrin.gif max temps were at 60 C, so I think I can go higher than where I am currently.

I'm shooting for around 5ghz but would be happy with where I am even now. Waiting to make my submission when I actually hit my ceiling for my cpu.

My question is - do I have to run a custom blend test to submit for stability, or can it be a standard blend? I have 16gb of ram, so the standard test doesn't really use much of that at all lol.

Congrats on your stable OC. 4.5Ghz @ 1.32 is what I'm at also which is about 50th percentile, so you have a decent chip there. 5Ghz may be a stretch for an average chip but 4.8~4.9 would be within reach... You can run a custom or standard blend for your submission. Its up to you. Most do a custom blend (95% usage) for epeen and to show they have some good stable ram as well. thumb.gif

I am a bit sad but back on my C2D/maximus with all my new goodies its not so bad. Hopefully I get the RMA process is done rather quickly but not stressing on it. I am not sure what caused the issue. I think the bios might have been unstable for a good amount of time. I am currently debating on whether to use Asus or to buy the extended protection from newegg so I can RMA through them.

Not really, most do it because not only does it stress the RAM and CPU but the IMC of the chip which is quite important.


See here:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Stability is hugely subjective, for example leaving a 20/30 tabs open and playing bfbc2 with fraps will surely drain the available RAM, that for someone could be everday usage.

Taking that into account I find that being able to stay stable for scenerio's like that, decreases your chances of getting any kind of bsod, therefore 'MORE' stability, which might be overkill to some but desirable for plenty of people.

On that note, those that have passed the blend run at 1600mb are stable for how they run their rig, for example, gaming 24/7 bfbc2 with no problems, however, it 'may' not be stable for high ram usage scenerio's which could be unlikely for some as they won't be running fraps and have 20/30 tabs open in the background because that's not how they run their rig.

Once you have done a 12hour+ blend whether it be custom or standard blend, I'm pretty sure there won't be a need to run it again and you might not get a bsod that relates to unstability of your overclock but then again you might because as you know overclocking and stress testing is not a guarantee.

There will ALWAYS be different opinons about this whole stability issue.

This is JUST the stable club, whether you go for, a standard blend or a custom blend you should be stable for what you use it for, stability is stability for your own use. If standard doesn't work for you, then go ahead and do a custom blend, that's the way I see it.

This is the stable thread, that's means general stability and extreme stability, both are included, however those with 8gb+ should really want to be using custom blend rather than normal blend (1600mb) which not only stresses the RAM and CPU but also the IMC of the chip which is important for stability.

BUT ITS TOTALLY UPTO YOU - I personally recommend custom blend with upto 90% of your available RAM!!!

Info regarding Prime FFT's and the total time it takes to complete, (credit Shad0wfax) HERE.


NOTE to those waiting for entry to club and spreadsheet, I will be updating later on tonight. Thank you all for your patience.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm hoping for a bit more than 4.5... I really liked the improvements I saw in gaming performance after the OC. A little more should be a little nicer biggrin.gif

Makes sense... I will probably go for the custom blend.

@kingjones

You can use standard blend, but custom blend is more usefull for you because it does stress the RAM and CPU also IMC.






To new guys here/new overclockers, plese read the first post of this read and use search for information, it is just easier than asking everything again in this thread. thumb.gif
