[Official] The Sandy Stable Club **Guides, Voltages, Temps & BIOS Templates** Inc SPREADSHEET - Page 885

post #8841 of 10702
Hi everyone, I just got my new parts set up and I'm in the middle of trying to find my first 24/7 overclock. 4.4Ghz is my highest stable so far, and I'm hoping to push it higher. 5ghz is my "dream speed," but I could settle for a little less.

i5-2500k
ASRock z68 Extreme3 Gen3
2x4gb DDR3-1600 G.Skill Ripjaws
850w SeaSonic 80+ Silver
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
one 1700rpm 120mm case fan in front & back of case

I brought the multiplier up to 45 and ran a successful Standard, 10-pass Intel Burn Test. Peak temperature was 65°c. I changed no settings besides multiplier. In CPU-Z, voltage went up to 1.296 when running at full speed. However, Windows crashes. When I attempted 47 (before seeing crashes @ 45), the system would not boot and I had to clear CMOS (the button was convenient biggrin.gif). 44 appears to be stable - running Prime95 on it right now.

I'm googling which settings to change so that I can boot above 45, but I would love to hear any suggestions you guys may have, especially if you also use an ASRock board. I would like to avoid having to clear CMOS many more times.

btw:
Passmark's Performance Test software is the software I'm using to benchmark performance. Scores:
Stock settings: ~6700
@44: ~8800
@45: 9045
Previous CPU (AMD Phenom II 960T @4Ghz): ~5000

@45 is, in fact, over 9000. It is important to me that my 24/7 overclock be over 9000.

EDIT: I'm looking at this thread right now
http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/sandy-ivy-bridge-complete-overclocking-guide-asrock-edition

EDIT: Got it to pass IBT "very high" test at 4.5Ghz, gonna do a long run of Prime95 after I get some sleep. If it's good, then I'll make 4.5Ghz my 24/7 overclock!

So, I am folding now at 4.5GHz, getting ~ 75, 80, 80, 75 running at 1.34V

I have my PLL down to the bare minimum on my Board (1.6 or something). And Offsetting by -.05VCore.

My questions are this...everything else is stock...is there anything else I can change to try and drop these temps? I have heard of trying to underclock/timing/volting RAM and VTT and stuff...what would you guys recommend? My ram is running at stock 1600 CL9.

Its pretty warm here. In my house it is like 75F usually. I don't have a great chip anyway. Badluck.

Dropped pll to 1.71v. Manual vcore to 1.355v. LLC to level 5 (10 being the highest). Ram at stock 1600 (xmp). Vtt to 1.090v. 45 multi.
9.5 hr priming before BSOD124. An improvement over my previous attempt: 1.810 pll, 1.36v vcore, 1.07 vtt 6 hrs prime.
1.55v vcore seems a little high for a 45x multi. Would dropping pll further allow me to drop vcore as well?
Im getting close to stable. Any help will be great thanks!
Im thinkin of trying 1.7 pll and 1.35 vcore. Im gettin 1.38 vcore under load at the moment so im looking to reduce that.

BIOS TEMPLATES

I have created a sheet for BIOS templates, it could be a reference point to other's including oneself and a quick 'copy and paste' whenever required in other threads/posts etc.

Those that have posted their stable systems please spare a few minutes of your time to do this. One more thing, these are the ones I’m after:
  • Main BIOS page (The advanced settings main page)

  • Full AI tweaker Page including DRAM Timing control

  • CPU Configuration Page


Spread sheet contains voltage info, temperature info, cooling info, BIOS templates and separate sheets have been created for all of those, including one which filters the i5 and i7. This should be helpful to SB users and those looking to get SB, it also helps provide real world data regarding how the coolers are performing, what temps people are getting with the overclocks and at what kind of voltages, I think that it’s a great addition to OCN and one that SB and non SB users can benefit from.


Thanks to all that contributed to this thread and spread sheet, would not have been possible without you guys thumb.gif


We currently have just over 400 members and we are looking for MORE tongue.gif


SO GET POSTING GUYS BUT REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE RULES!!!!


And again thanks to all those participated, we have some excellent club members here!!!!

I'll be running Prime 95 Blend overnight, but so far I am stable at 5GHz HT ON 1.44v and max temps of ~69ºC with just 2 push fans at ~900rpm and pump at like ~60% of total speed. tongue.gif

Really impressed at how well this chip does, I'll make sure I post proof of Prime 95 blend once it's done!!

Hello Guys,
I have upgraded my rig from C2D to i2600k. Bought Asrock's Z77 Extreme4-M motherboard but faced some problems to overclock i7 chip. After a series of attempts finally reached the system stability on VTT 1,38 with HT enabled. What is my concern, after more or less 4 minutes during load test (Prime95/OCCT) I can observe that my processor throttles from 45x to 34x multiplier every 10-15 seconds. I am wondering now whether I made a good choice buying asrock's board. However that should not be an issue since I'm not trying to reach 5GHz and this mobo should easily reach 4,5GHz.
My first thought was, my system's overheating. However the temperature on the hottest core does not exceed 62C under stress. Than I checked the voltage and I do not think this is the problem either. I used Asrock'a AutoOC function in UEFI and for 44x multiplier system was also droping multiplier despite 1,44 voltage shown by CPU-Z.
My next step would be disabling SpeedStep, but I do not want to do that, since system will be online most of the day. Any ideas what may cause such behavior? Using latest 1.10 UEFI BIOS from Asrock's website.
My settings below. Any advice much appreciated. I am getting my Radeon 7850 tomorrow and hope to have this issue solved.

Thanks.

You and I have very interestingly similar builds...except, I think I probably spent a lot less.

Thanks for this post. I haven't tried changing my VTT yet. Interesting. I would use the 1.20 UEFI, if you have it available. I just flashed mine...works a lot smoother. My board has done this too, where it will drop to 3.4 and then back to wherever I have my multiplier at...idk how I fixed it. But I did. Maybe once I get a stable...stable clock, I will post it for you. IMO 4.2 is a wussy stable...I want 4.5 @ 75C. Its funny though, I offset my voltage the other way. Negative.
