How is my overclock so far?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
OK, just started overclocking and this is my first chip i have really put effort into in a while. Sitting at 4.5ghz at 1.344(1.3v in bios). Temps looks good. sitting at 56C as a max after almost an hour.

Question is, should i be able to push it further using the same vcore as i have heard 4.5 at 1.3v is a little overkill. should i be able to hit 4.7-4.8 without much of a problem? dont seem temps getting in my way at all lol.

Id say keep going until you hit the multiplier wall - just keep it under 1.45v

In my exp you will need to give it more vcore than 1.45 before hitting the multi wall... I went over 1.5v and it was still taking more multi before I decided to stop even though it can have gone higher (53x) with more vcore.

I like to know what the chip is capable of, then dial it back for everyday use.

That is just me though. You look like you have plenty of headroom to keep going though.

Keep it up.

Very nice so far. I'm at 4.5Ghz on my 2600k. I can't go further because of temperature issues. I'm going to do a reseat and apply some of my own thermal paste and hopefully temperatures will drop a little bit so I can hit 4.8 or somewhere around there.

Keep going, man!

well bumped up multi to 47. booted at 4.7ghz at same 1.3v in bios and bsod while loading into my user. upped to 1.305 and bsod again after fully loaded into user when surfing overclock.net trying to post. now at 1.31 and and 4.7ghz and about to try to prime95 it. Seems 1.3v is perfect for 4.5ghz but gonna need 1.31+ for 4.7ghz.

I needed 1.30v to be 24/7 stable at 4.5Ghz with my 2600k. If I had anything lower I'd crash after a week or so. I've been stable for almost a month now. I let my rig stay on for days at a time, too.

SB is all about the core voltage, really. Gotta find your sweet spot!

Either adjust your LLC or give it more vcore.

ok. now at 1.325 in bios and running prime95 again. worker #4 keeps stopping then i get a BSOD afterwords. if 1.325 does not work, im wondering if it could be a ram issue. 1.30 is good enough for almost an our at 4.5 but if 1.325 BSOD at 4.7 maybe something is up?
