Nice overclocks.

@ society misfit, that's a nice overclock for such a low voltage - 1.192. You say you can't get past 4.73, might it be that you don't have enough voltage? Again, looking at the voltage you have now seem awfully low. Also have you prime95 tested for stability?

Anyway if that thing is stable with those volts that's one hecek of a chip you have there.

My two cents.

Mine wont boot past 105MHz or x42 clock multiplier. I also tried to manually change the voltage, but it BSoDs with even 1.3, so I left it on auto.

Any thoughts?

Really with such new tech I would say search the net for people overclocking the these new chips and see what they have to say. Since you have an Asus board I would check with Asus forums.

I'm sure these chips are going to be a learning curve for quite a few people.

I wasn't for sure if it was or not. In this thread it didn't mention anything of it. Thanks again for the link.

Lordbob,

This is I found out. Apparently the max BCLK is only 105MHz (so I’ve read). So I reduced it back to 100MHz and increased the multiplier and added a little more juice to the CPU. I reached 5000MHz!!!!!!!!! (grabs beer to celebrate!).

Unfortunately I BSOD 4 min into a AIDA64 stress test. During the stress my temps peaked at 71C but on average they were around 65C…idle they sit at a nice 34C


Will toy with it a bit more and report back. But given that I reached 5GHz on air says a lot about this board and CPU….flawed or not!!

Oh, and this was done using the Asus AI Suite!

What was your memory running at? And what voltage are you using for it?
