SB Overclocking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an Asus P8P67 Pro board and a i5-2500k and I don't understand the difference between overclocking the simple vcore adjustment way, the positive offset way and the negative offset way. Anyone can clear me on this ?

Well the offsets are fairly easy.
Normally you'd just leave it at offset for stock. However when overclocking this can be a problem. (I've seen uncontrolled offset go to 1.65v and higher at higher clocks) Anyways sometimes offset just doesn't add enough to make the machine stable. so you'd use the positive offset to add tenths of a volt to the offset. The negative works the opposite way subtracting vcore from the offset if you think it's adding to much.

Manual you just slowly increase vcore and turbo multi and work you way up.
Offset you can sometimes just set what you think is your max multi load it check vcore adjust offset however you think it needs to be adjusted repeat.

That's just a really condensed version so I know I'm probably forgetting something.
Anyways I'd use the AI Suite to get a very vague range of your chips potential and start from there keeping in mind to use multi only to achieve what they did with multi and bclk.

And if you're still unsure follow a couple guides there is a nice one for ASUS boards on HardForums [H] or something like that I can't remember atm.
