    Nice OC Kelly The voltage probably had your skin crawling huh
    It's not too bad for 4.9GHz, but more than I'm comfortable with!

    Thanks Doug. I'll need 1.500v or better to make it to 5GHz, and that's more than I'm comfortable with at the moment. I may tweak some other settings to see if I can get there though. Still, an Ivy Bridge CPU at 4.9GHz is crazy fast! lol

    I'm on it.......in last place, but I went from 4.5GHz straight to 4.9GHz and stopped there. Actually ran the computer for awhile @ 4.9 and it ran well. I fiddled with it after dinner and I couldn't get it to boot to the desktop @ 5GHz with less than 1.500v so I stopped testing for now. I'm going to get into my guide and try making some changes to see if I can ease into it another way. I was only changing the multiplier and raising the offset voltage. Crude but now I know where to start tomorrow

    Kelly, if you use manual voltage you have more control of how much voltage is actually used. I do it that to find out exactly what vcore is needed at that frequency and then convert it to offset once I know exactly what is needed. Offset fluctuates too much for me when trying to find the voltage needed.

    With reference to the https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...er-boards.html thread, remember we are not looking for rock solid stable OC's, as long as you can validate your speed you are in.

    I had mine stable at 5ghz, but it was far from stable at 5.1ghz lol.

    *sigh* Despite passing 11 1/2 hours of prime - 4.7ghz was not stable for me.

    Started getting a lot of random BSOD's and WHEA-Logger reports and heaps of app crashes.

    I thought it might have been my new USB soundcard (still suspect dodgy drivers).


    Everything was nice and stable, but know I'm seriously thinking of ditching my 3rd card. It's starting to cause more headaches than benefits.

    I'd grab a pair of 780's but I simply cant afford it, even if I sold my others



    And I know it's coincidence, but every single time I help others with crash dumps - my machine takes a nose dive. I'm not doing crash dumps any more.
