Well the OC I'm doing with the 45x multi at 4.7 GHz is using 1.49v But I can get it 24/7 Folding@Home stable with just 1.425v and that'll keep it Prime 95 Blend stable for about 2 hours. And yeah as I said in OP this chip can't compare to the first 2500k and motherboard I got, I just wish I'd never even thought of attaching that H50 >v< that screwed me over bigtime...
Anyways any more ideas?
OS boot options is just before the Windows Splash screen, usually if you have two OS installed it will ask you which to choose. Looks like the screen when you press f8 after post and you get to windows safe mode options.
put everything back into default in BIOS
and follow this guide religiously
^ follow everything on that to the TEE except for set your vcore to 1.45 and set the multiplier to 48 that should yield you 4.8ghz and do prime blend test for one hour.
watch the temps, if the temps get over 80C I would not keep it at that OC for 24/7 or lower the vcore. My i5 2500k runs 4.8ghz at 1.35v, YMMV.
- start at 48 mulitiplier
- set vcore 1.45
- follow the rest of the guide religously
