What exactly is it you need me to post?
What? noooo, not you... dam I quoted it wrong didn't I?... How do we always get mixed up in what each other is saying/typing...
Maybe it's just me...
Oh yeah, I was doing 4.8Ghz @ 1.345V and at 2hr 45min I got a BSOD... Disheartening..
I have my new case. CM 690 II Basic. It's very good. Temps were only 1C higher then my 4.7Ghz burn and I'm not finished with case fans yet.
no problem bro. And keep at it, you'll get it stable!
i got my i5k just over 5ghz few weeks ago, its quite stable at 4.6 24/7, good to see your results.
How stable is "quite stable"? :/
Lets start with the IBT, prime later when I have had time to run it long enough (at least 6 hours). BTW coretemp shows wrong VID value
Does your voltage drop when stressing?
What cooling do you have?
My 1.345V drops to 1.320 when stressing.... I think if I go to 1.35V I could get a V drop to 1.328V and stay stable.
My voltage actually goes a bit above what I set in BIOS. I think it is 1.330-1.336V under full load. LLC in the ASUS Gene-Z is absolutely great.
Megahalems + couple scythe gentle typhoons at under 1300rpm.
^^^ awesome cooler, I have the Megashadow and I love it. My 2600K @ 4.5GHz and 1.368v stays under 68*.
I always drool at the Super Mega, but can't justify the price for only couple degrees better temps.
This one is more than fine, I'm going water soon though.
Here's a run of 3DMark11
A little better
And prime, 5 hours and still running. Starting to look stable enough for me. Custom settings, with 8GB memory use
Yes VERY nice. Congrats on the great chip.
Time to update your system specs on the left.
Nice job guys!
Temps are a little high but ambient was warmer than usual. I do believe I could run this 24/7 without heat problems. Nothing will stress it like Prime95 does.
I'm gonna go higher but I think i'll wait until I get my Kuhler 620 w/dual ultra kaze's to keep temps low. That's unless we get a dry cold day where I live, I might just have to push it then, if that's the case
Stable enough to play games like mw3 for 5 str8 hrs but not stable enough to run windows media centre live tv and have itunes open and web browsing too, it seems to crash when i put the tele on sometimes strangely.
After seeing this thread... I decided to swap my "daily" 2600K out for my nice low voltage 2500K.
Ambient Temp ~16.5C and cooling is under water.
Great chip bro.
I assume you stress longer than that though for stability.
:/ maybe your idle voltages are too low or too high same with maybe your clocks. You could try messing around with the CxE states if you wanted too.
Btw, I forgot to disable integrated GPU before I started overclocking. Would it improve the OC results if I disable it? I will disable it anyway tho, I don't need it.
And final test for 4.8GHz, LinX with over 12GB memory use -> about 1h long test.
Hmmm, don't think it would improve it to be honest. ...and like the end results!
I sometimes run Prime for two maybe three hours or do a 20 pass LinX but for daily use long term stability I like to "crunch" WCG or Rosetta 24/7. It is not as stressful but as the hours lead into days or weeks I find it works well enough for me. I don't like to risk possibly burning/degrading a chip when benching with big overclocks. If I continue to keep running this chip I'll most likely lower vcore and run 49x or 50x.
WCG 100% load for ~5+ hrs...
As you can see the Vcore drops to 1.368V.. But it usually says 1.376V.
These temps would not be possible without my Kuhler 620 P/P setup.
