Settings for Intel i5-8600k

Hello everyone,

I just built my new rig which is as follow:
- Asrock Z370m itx/ac (https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z370M-ITXac/index.asp)
- Intel i5-8600k
- Sapphire RX470 Nitro 4GB OC
- DDR4 8GBx2 - G.SKILL Value Series - F4-2400C15S-8GNT
- EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2
- Bequiet! Pure Rock
- Fractal Nano S

I have read that the auto settings are often not good (voltage too high) so my question is simple: what settings should I set for the CPU and the RAM ? By the way, the RAM is at 2133MHz with my bios.

I don't want to OC because I don't have time for all the tweakings but if it's possible to do a light OC without any further stability test, that would be cool.

Thanks by advance and sorry for the noob question.

Which EVGA 650 watt please name the model and not just the brand wattage and rating
If it is what i think it then its not a very good PSU and you should send it back in that case


Besides that the amount of wattage is more than twice as much as the whole system draws

It is the EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2. I thought this was an excellent PSU...

I know it is oversized for my computer but I buy part by part and only when it is discounted. I've got this PSU with a great discount that's why I took this one and I think it's also a good idea because I can keep this component for my next rig in a couple of years. I updated the rest of the component with the exact model.

650 G2 is a good unit. SuperNOVA Nex 650G (which I assume is what shilka was concerned about) is rather mediocre.

Farewel happy Fields; Where Joy for ever dwells; Hail horrours, hail; Infernal world, and thou profoundest Hell; Receive thy new Possessor; One who brings; A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time; The mind is its own place, and in it self; Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n.

I was thinking about the NEX aka G1
Nothing wrong with the G2 at all so never mind

Have you checked out this video:


It's an extremely simple guide to follow and is where a lot of people have got started when it comes to overclocking these chips.

It's very, very, very, very easy to get a relatively decent overclock (i.e 4.6-8 GHz) by changing a minimal amount of settings as you can see above.

CPU: Intel Core i5-8600K - 5GHz (Delidded | vCore: 1.435v | Cache: 4800MHz) | GPU: MSI GTX 1080ti Armor OC [Core: 2100MHz | Memory: +600MHz | Voltage: 1.15 | XOC BIOS] | RAM: TEAM GROUP DARK PRO EDITION (8GB x 2 | Frequency: 3866MHz | Timings: 16-16-16-36 | vDIMM: 1.45v) | Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z370-A | PSU: Seasonic PRIME ULTRA GOLD 1000W | CPU Block: EK Velocity | GPU Block: EK-FC1080 GTX Ti TF6 | Radiators: x2 HWLabs SR2 360MM  | Pump / Res: EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM | Fans: x6 Noctua NF-F12

Thank you I'll try this out but I find the Asrock BIOS messy.

Another problem is that BIOS update won't work. I tried to update and it was stuck at 0%, I had to shut down the computer. Fortunately, it was still working just fine. Apparently, other users have the same problem.

Any idea?

Most settings changed in this guide will resemble settings on your board even though Der8auerr was using a board from ASUS.

Also, unless you're trying to squeeze every last drop out of your processor all you virtually need to change is "Load Line Calibration" to one of the highest settings, though not the actual highest, set your desired frequency (i.e 4800MHz) and change your vcore (i.e 1.33v) until it is stable.

CPU: Intel Core i5-8600K - 5GHz (Delidded | vCore: 1.435v | Cache: 4800MHz) | GPU: MSI GTX 1080ti Armor OC [Core: 2100MHz | Memory: +600MHz | Voltage: 1.15 | XOC BIOS] | RAM: TEAM GROUP DARK PRO EDITION (8GB x 2 | Frequency: 3866MHz | Timings: 16-16-16-36 | vDIMM: 1.45v) | Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z370-A | PSU: Seasonic PRIME ULTRA GOLD 1000W | CPU Block: EK Velocity | GPU Block: EK-FC1080 GTX Ti TF6 | Radiators: x2 HWLabs SR2 360MM  | Pump / Res: EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM | Fans: x6 Noctua NF-F12

I basically just disabled all power saving features and turbo, set 4.5 @ 1.35v, XMP, found LLC setting the puts load voltage as close as possible of the BIOS set voltage, then test 4.5 and keep increasing frequency until your benchmark fails. Then you have the choice of more voltage if temperature you're still OK or stay at what ever 1.35v gives you.

Personally I have an extremely low leakage chip, which means it won't do overclocking records but doesn't output a lot of heat with high voltages. It does 5.2 Ghz on 1.44v at with an H50 does 65C on load
