Either add more voltage or settle for 4.8GHz.Originally Posted by Supracharge
My i7 2600k keeps crashing under heavy load @ 5ghz I have the core voltage set to 1.475 in bios, and I have HT disabled. My mobo is a Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3
bsod with cpu under heavy load. I can boot into desktop just fine @ 5.2 ghz thoughOriginally Posted by Starbomba
You may wanna play around either raising or lowering PLL, or raising VTT just a bit.
Do you happen to see a BSOD, or the computer just hangs? That might help in telling what the problem is.
Also, 1.475v seems too high for 5 GHz. While Sandy's are awesome clockers, not all can hit 5 GHz with multi only. You might want to also try leaving multi to 49x and raising bclk to 102, or choosing 48x multi and 104 bclk.
As a last resort, you might need to settle for 4.9-4.8 GHz. You might have one of those chips that simply can't get to 5 GHz.
