Windows 7: Post Your Overclock!

Yep

When I built this rig, I opted for the 2500K as a 'temporary' chip until IVY was released, but with the current heat issues and great performance as is - I might end up skipping IVY unless they do a revision.


Lately I've ignored my own advice and have been playing with the BCLK. 102.5 pushes me up to 4.726ghz and my 2133mhz modules seem quite happy @ 2190mhz.

They seem to have mhz headroom, but hate having the timings adjusted

Hi Patrick, where ya been?
I suspect the higher RAM frequency will make up for a bit looser timing?

From my limited experiences, most Intel chips seem to like more Bandwidth over tighter Timings anyway, so I wouldn't even worry about it.
2190Mhz is pretty fast

I've been around

I just took a break from fiddling.

Raw mhz has definitely more impact than tighter timings.

yeah, I've given up on timing tightening - There's no pay off. Raw mhz gives better bandwidth and lower latency.

I'm testing a bclk of 103.1 which is giving me 2200MHZ. I was running the DRAM at 1.62500 and VCCIO at 1.125 and got an idle BSOD at 2090Mz.

I've now upped the dram to 1.65 / 1.15 and adjusted the - offest a few notches. I might give it a proper stress later to see how it's affecting the PIC-E lanes (GPU) etc.

These are some 'realworld temps' atm (converting video) -.030 iirc

EDIT:

Nope - It did not like running that quick. BSOD. Time to dial and fiddle...

*Sigh* back to the drawing board.

Edit:

Decided to start low, test properly and then increase as need be.

BCLK 102.5 / 4.695ghz / 2176mhz /-0.020 offset /1.65v DRAm and 1.5 VCCIO / CPU spectrum Enabled / LLC set to medium (%25)

10 pas of IBT maximum. Now priming.

If that is stable, then I'll do what I normally do -lower settings, don't bother 'stress testing' and cross fingers with real world usage

And if it fails Prime95 - I'll swear. Basically the tried and true method of overclocking

I'm getting the same bandwidth/latency @ 2175mhz that I was at 2200mz, give or take the odd Mb and .X ns

29K winsat and 43ns is quick in any mans language

Nice OC, no swearing?

No, there has been several bouts of swearing since then :P

P95 failure about an hour in. BSOD the next run. etc

Good old 'pass Ibt', yet fail Prime.

I'm dropping the BCLK each time. Now I'm trying using a + offset. I suspect there will be more swearing before the night is through.

I probably should be doing a memtest run but god damn that test bores me to tears...


One thing that's always had me curious about overclocking is:

"Rig has a decent and stable OC and all is fine". Then out of the blue it's suddenly not acceptable and things must be tinkered with to the point of frustration and the sometimes inevitable rollback to original stable overclock

Computers are cranky. I've come back to a BSOD after a night's sleep...after a high pass with IBT.

Those are the absolute worst Dejection is the main emotion with frustration and annoyance mixed in.

I know the feeling all to well

I'm currently a couple of hours into a 4.75ghz / BCLK 101.1 / 2156Mhz / No LLC / + 0.010 offfset(?) + a few different tweaks and 'so far so good.

IBT max 10 didn't go above 70c and vcore topped at 1.308

Priming atm @ 1.288v with 59c across all cores.

I've been swear free for a few hours now

So far It's still quite an acceptable vcore for the clock speed with plenty of headroom.

I think this latest bout of tweaking is down to preparing for any potential SLI GTX 670 bottleneck eradication.

Keep the world swear-free and enjoy. Why are we moved to fiddle-fart around with a stable system to "see if this works"?
1.288V is darned good for 4.75GHz, I can't seem to get mine to run more than 4.5.
