Windows 7: Post Your Overclock!

My *stupid* Gigabyte AMD board does the two-step boot dance after almost any BIOS adjustments. Usually it won't boot at all then and tells me overclocking had failed and it resets to defaults. Real bad form I think.

Finally a stable 4.6GHz. BIOS updates and it works now, old BIOS would BSOD at boot. WEI even went up .1 on CPU score. Vcore bounce 1.320-1.336 with IBT on maximum.

Nice job, Gary. Getting kind of warm though. IBT always does that.

Thanks, I'm still fiddling with off set volts, this was at -0.04 and I did hit 90C a bit before this.

I've learned that heat won't bother you if you quit running IBT and Prime.

lol, I'm still on the original BIOS for my board. The old 'if it ain't broke...' - I might update and be even more surprised.

If you'd like (or have the inclination) do you want to take some screenies of your BIOS for us to look at?

That's about right. I can't recall the 7.6 to 7.7 ghz point difference - but's that's as high you'll get her. Even low 5Ghz+ stays at 7.7

Perfectly normal vdroop there. Are you using any LLC?

(probably easier to post screenies :P )

At any rate, kudos and you're in the ballpark

Yep

Personally with my own regular usage, encompassing EVERY THING I do, be it app or game - I'd be very hard pressed to break 60c on a core.


Winter helps, but when summer returns even if it sits around 60-65c, I'm laughing.

Thanks Patrick, Bill, and Steve. Here's some screens of my UEFI, 3304 BIOS. I have no onboard graphics with this chip (i5-2550K) so there are no IGPU settings shown.
