failsafe settings - sabertooth p67 and 2500k

i want to reach 4.5ghz... theres plenty guides but im pretty sure some1 already did it with this same board .. so how bout spoiling the fun of figuring out and post your BIOS settings?
i ran prime with some settings and i got 0x101 so i guess im doing something wrong.

not all CPU's are identical, and not all can be overclocked to the same speed using the same settings, thats why theres not an overclockers manual or cheat sheet :)

ive had 2 identical cpus and one wouldnt go a single mhz over its stock speed :) the other would easily oc

Copying someone else's settings is not a clever idea. There is no garantuee it will work on your CPU/Mobo/Ram set up whatever that is.

If you have no idea what your doing then you need to learn what needs to be done and then do it yourself. A 2500k should reach 4.5ghz easily some hit 5ghz no problems but it depends on which CPU you get. Guys I know on OCAU buy CPU's in multiples and overclock each one til they get the best of the lot. Mind you they have more money than I.
Not sure the Sabretooth is a good board to overclock with anyway and it can depend on what board you have and what ram your using plus last but not least what cooling your using.
I can't help you with Bios settings anyway sorry as I'm still using a X58 based rig and have absolutely no intention of sidegrading to the new Intel chips. The X79 is pretty ordinary in fact. The 2500/2600k's are nice overclockers I hear but I have no personal hands on with them.

Google is your friend. I'm sure if you look you will find some settings somewhere that may give you somewhere to start. Trouble is if you do use someone else's settings and it crashes how will you know where to start looking so you can rectify it.

My advice is do it yourself..slooowly.

Keep it simple.

What may work is set you RAM to its rated Speed/timings/voltages and test it with Memtest before you do anything. Make sure its good.

If thats OK, set the CPU multi to 45, set vCore to 1.3v. Most should be able to run at 4.5 here. If yours wont, increase a little at a time until stable.
If its OK at those voltages, then start lowering it and testing until you find the lowest stable vcore.

You may also want to set VDroop to "Without vDroop" OR enable Load Calibration.
(whatever your board calls the setting that reduces/eliminates vDroop)

But as mentioned, not all CPUs are the same and your really better off just taking your time and find what your setup likes.
Mine runs at 4.5 with 1.25 Volts. You may need less, a bit more, or a lot more. Theres no way to know.
