P67 Pro w/ 2500k. Looking for some overclock advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello once again,

I've been trying to find a good how-to setup for the p67 pro and 2500k. Some say push it up to 47, others to 5k, then there's the humble crowd. I know it depends entirely on the cpu, but has anyone come across an all-around stable medium?

I tried the settings posted by Lurch on this page, but it gave me a blue screen while starting up.

I haven't overclocked in years, it's early in the morning, and just wondering if someone would be kind enough to link me a solid how-to link for a decent overclock using my setup so I can put my mind to rest and twink it later

Help Greatly appreciated on this one!!

Depending on your goals you systematically increase your Mult/FSB (or equivalent) at your stock voltage and run stress testing to see if your rig remains stable. Once you start to crash you increase core voltage until your stable enough to boot into windows and run a stress test program for a predetermined length (5-20 mins). Once you hit your goals (in clockspeed) then you try to get P95 to run for 24 hours, LinX for ~50-200 threads? If you crash you either need to increase voltages or change Mult/FSB slightly (or equivalent).

Also you should set your memory to the least abrasive (lowest speed, loose timings) settings to rule out the limit of your memory. After your CPU is clocked where you want it and completes the stress test then you can return your memory to where you want it. I would re stress test after you re enable your memory.

Hope some of this helps (I have not OCed a SB yet); My dinosaur 775 rig used to have problems at 3.0ghz, just by bumping to 3.1ghz it stabled out (FSB hole I guess).
