Hey guys, some help with offset ocing on my 2500k. Water cooled with xspc kit, temps are a-ok.
My system is:
8Gb Corsair Plats
I finally got my cpu to 4.6 stable using offset at a respectable 1.376 vcore. I took some time getting there. Now, I tried getting my 2500k to 5 gigs, but so far I get only blue screens or freezes.
I am using this guide
, which netted me my 4.6 stable. I am using +.005 for that oc.
Things got tricky with 5GHz. I was able to boot into windows with offset on auto, but that gave me a 1.66 on vcore, which is not optimal, to say the least. I then managed to boot into windows with offset on +.100 (from +.005) but that also gave me bsod on prime95. With that setting (and pll volt on 1.852), cpuz showed 1.51 on load before crashing. LLC is on 75%.
The other weird thing is that at one point, while setting offset to +.080 cpuz would show 1.45, while +.070 shows 1.47...
What can I do to try and stabilize this oc, or is it the max my cpu can handle?
