    Default P67A UD4 B3 only runs at stock bios settings can any one help me OC

    Hi Everyone,
    my 1st intel build and went with the 2500k and the UD4 B3.
    My problem is i want to do a modest OC but my P67A UD4 B3 will only run at stock bios settings. Have tried F2 bios (default) F3 and F3D all act the same way even with the back up bios set to match the current bios.
    I bought this rig to OC to 4.5ghz but no matter what OC settings i try even 4ghz the pc just freezes during the bios post and i have to clear cmos every single time.

    heres a list of my setup.
    i5 2500k stock speed
    Noctua NH D-14 cpu cooler idle 32c full load 43c
    8gb G-skill 1600mhz ram at 1.5v default speed and 9-9-9-24
    corsair F60 SSD drive
    corsair 850w modular PSU
    and a couple of normal storage HD's

    If any one can shed some light on how to OC this mobo without resetting cmos everytime i try to OC i would really appreciate it

    Maybe try manual qpi/vtt voltage of 1.1v,set cpu voltage to normal in voltage list,and adjust the cpu multiplier to clock to where you want,you should hit 3.6-3.8ghz maybe more on stock voltages

    Thank you for the quick response and info vey much appreciated
    I have just set the qpi/vtt voltage of 1.1v,set cpu voltage to normal in voltage list,and adjusted the cpu multiplier to 38 and it booted into windows with no problems so at least now i know it works and i'm just a super noob
    if i try to up the multi to 40 or higher should i manually set the vtt and vcore higher too untill it boots up ok ?

    Ok just booted up at 4ghz and got a 6.24 on cinebench 11.5 i know this isn't exactly a proper stress & reliability test etc i just wanted to see if it would BOSD or not !! and so far so good.

    I don't know,I'm going off my platform for ocing,I don't know much about sandybridge yet,I do know though that you shouldn't raise qpi/vtt voltage above 1.2v,as for cpu voltage I would leave it on normal for now and just see how far you can clock to before it fails,remember you can add a little more qpi/vtt voltage to try and stabilize things,setting cpu and qpi/vtt to a manual setting rather than an auto voltage would have helped things

    Look on main gigabyte/tweaktown page under ocing tools and download coretemp to monitor you cpu core temps,download linx or Intel burn test and try doing 10 runs on high,if it passes it should be pretty stable

    cheers i'm using real temp and am at idle 32c at 4.2ghz and max 48c i will very much keep in mind your advice for the vtt max of 1.2. i would like to hit 4.5ghz, i tried with 1.38v which i hear is the safe limit for a long cpu life but it would not post just froze up again maybe my chip is not so good but it should still give me 4.5ghz stable... well i hope lol

    You should hit 4.5ghz,those chips run a lot cooler and clock higher than previous chips,just take care on voltages as you don't need a huge amount

    4.3ghz and 6.71 on cinebench 11.5 doesn't seem to want to go higher though regardless of voltage increase

    You fall just a bit behind Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 if we scale your score up or their down, but the run memory at 6-6-6-18-1T, what is your memory at?
