    15 minutes or few hours make absolutely no difference in CPU life. Temperatures are stable etc etc... And yes, maybe it is surprising for you, but as i said, i had random BSOD in hours range instead of minutes range. By the way, you talk about long Linpack runs, yet many people push 1.4V constantly to their CPU's. I on other side run with EIST and C1E enabled, which means 1.02V in idle.

    That's a completely ridiculious amount of time to run Linpak for. I'm surprised OP's CPU isn't a charred mess.

    Using LinX and ~5 runs can give a pretty good idea of stability, and takes ~10-15 minutes.
    Wozer! No, I didn't notice but you are right, that is WAY too long to test with Linpack!

    I use 5-10 at the most now, there are much better and safer ways to test your system for stability than running this for hours degrading things.

    Cool Re: It's me, board or CPU ? i7 2600k OC issues (P67A-UD4-B3)

    Hi Guys. I just got the same board with the 2500k instead since I already have an I7 930 PC. I am having issues as well with overclocking and sleeping while in windows. Whenever my PC goes to sleep, it will wake itself back up on its own and never go back to sleep. OP can you test and see if sleep is working for you? Hopefully you are using Windows 7 64. I do have one more question for you. It seems that you are making the same mistake I did when I first overclocked my 2500K. Why do you have TURBO disabled in the bios? You are using the old way of overclocking. The method you are using is now dead to the 2500K and 2600K. Not saying that you cant overclock that way but, You really need to be overclocking the turbo multipliers instead. My 2500K idles @.889 Vcore and at 32 degrees. Once turbo kicks in, it jumps to 4.5Ghz on its own. Once its done with whatever task it was doing, guess what? It goes back to 32 degrees and .889 Vcore. I also have every power saving feature on. I also ran geekbench with your overclocking method Vs. overclocking the turbo multipliers only. The score is exactly the same. So you have 2 choices. Run 2600K over-volted and with unnecessary heat @ 4.6 24/7. Or Run 4.6Ghz nice and cool. I feel that your new 2600K will last longer in the long run if you overclock the multipliers. But that is only a suggestion. Think about it though.

    @alencc3
    Go to Device Manager >- network adapter properties -> power, and make sure "Only allow magic packets to wake the computer" is checked.

    Check that no programs or pcie devices or LAN are waking the pc up,could still be bios issue though due to it being a new platform,I had same thing when my mb first came out,now its fine

    thanks guys! I will try now. And thanks for the tips you gave the OP. I will see If I can get higher than 4.5.

    No, i don't make a mistake. You probably looked at first posts and made your mind using those, but i don't use those settings 24/7.

    If you didn't noticed, i use the normal setting with Dynamic Voltage (DVID) set to +0.05V. Turbo is disabled, C1 enabled, EIST enabled, C6 disabled. Guess what. My PC is idling at 1.6GHz with 1.02V (the reason why not 0.889 or such value is because i disabled C6 support which lowers the VCore even more, but unfortunately was making my overclock unstable at middle clocks - 2,5-3,5GHz), while at burn it is at 4.6GHz at 1.39V. It is totally irrelevant if CPU uses EIST or Turbo to jump from x16 through other multipliers up to x46. End result is same - my CPU idles as well as yours, except a little higher idle voltage because of disabled C6 support.

    Sleep - well, i don't use the sleep feature, so while i can test it for you, i'm unsure if it will help you as i don't have things configured correctly for sleep.

    If you add a tiny amount more in dvid it will raise your idle voltage slightly too,then enable c6,you don't need c1e enabled if you use balanced power saving profile in Windows

    C6 = BSOD in my case. It's not like that 0.1V idle voltage difference does that much. CPU still idles in sub-40C temps.

    I see. I will try disabling my C6 and see what vcore&temps I get while idle. If I disable C6, will it make the CPU not be able to drop down to 1, 2, or 3 cores? I really don't need all cores running all the time and like the idea that the cpu knows when to drop down to 2 or 1 core at a faster speed than all four. If you really check, you should be able to run the 2600K with 2 cores at a higher multiplier than you would have been able to with all four. For example, with only 2 cores enabled I can hit 5ghz but with all 4 I can only get 4.5Ghz. So, with the new turbo feature, I can set up 4 different modes: 52x while running 1 core, 50x while running 2 cores, 47x while running 3 cores, and 45x while running all four. If using the cpu this way, you still get increased stability at an overall 5.2Ghz while keeping your 4 core speed at your 4.6Ghz. And maybe your Vcore is a lil higher than mines at idle due to the fact that your CPU has hyperthreading and mine does not. The only reason I am concerned with sleep is because this computer is my designated TV-PC. I mainly use this one for Netflix, Dolphin, PCSX2, and movies streaming from my main PC. So when I fall asleep watching anything, I want the PC to go to sleep as well. But Its good to talk to fellow UD4-B3'er.
