    Hi guys, I'm in a bit of a pinch, I'm trying to get my processor to 5GHz, but so far, I've only got a stable 4.8GHz OC.

    it's on water and heat is not an issue...

    This is for a new mATX build, project whitewater, outcome should look a bit like this (forgive my graphics editing skills) :D

    Need help from anyone who reached more than 5GHz, just want to know what timings/divider/voltage/multiplier/etc. you used to reach it...

    Ram timings: CL9 and bring your IMC/QPI/VTT voltage up a notch. Also, don't run that core voltage 24.7! You are liable to kill it.

    Sometimes dram termination voltage will play a cause as well. See what 2t command rate gives you also.

    no luck, could only get about 50mhz more... looks like the processor is limited to that, temps are still stable at around 55c load on 4.8ghz though, oh well...
