    Hi

    thanks for the suggestion. From that i worked back from the beginning and so far it seems to be more stable with a lower voltage. Could a high voltage cause instability/ high temperature readings?

    Intel only guarantees the memory speed of the i7-2600K up to 1333, which seems low of course, but that is their spec. That is due to the memory controller (IMC) being part of the CPU now, rather than the chipset. My i7-2600K does not like going above 1866 without carefully setting memory settings, so that may be the limit for your CPU and memory too.

    IMO, the length of time some users say you must run Prime95 with an OC for it to be considered stable, are extreme, since in actual usage, when do you ever run the CPU at 100% for eight hours or more? I think you are doing very well with your OC and memory. Those rounding errors are said to indicate some instability, but if the PC doess not crashing/BSOD, that is a good sign.

    You might consider raising the IMC voltage on the CPU a little bit, but discovering what that setting is called in your BIOS, if it is even there, can be difficult.
    i have a asrock program which is not to accurate aswell as hardware monitor PRO from CPUID
    I will find out that voltage now. Working from wazza300 comments i started with a lower voltage slowly rasing it till i get something thats stable. Do you think that a too high voltage could cause instability??

    just managed to get intel burn test stable under normal and high load, but that was without the 1866mhz ram(didnt get to run prime yet). Once i applied the ram timings for 1866 i managed to get a normal load but not a high load. I decided to up the DRAM voltage in steps all the way to 1.60v0 with it failing and sometimes crashing during the test. it seems like the problem is the RAM timings then?any way to fix this or should i just settle for a slower RAM and high overclock?

    its the ones on the XMP Profile 9-10-9-27. Okay once i establish i have a stable overclock will work on that then

    Hello again , Hey Waz also.

    I clocked down anddid some screenshots of 4.4 running on mine..but it is more likely the memory ,you can save screenshots of the uefi pages onto a usb stick if you want..f11 or f12 i forget which :0

    4.4 all auto llc on lvl5(ie standard) the cpu voltage starts off peaking at 1.335 then settles down to 1.317/1.32 core temps peak up to 61 or so then settle down more as fans kick in.

    I run my memory one one of the jedec settings 8-8-8-22 but it is only 1333 spec memory, it doesnt have an xmp and it will only run 1600 on 10-10 timings.

    (nb its supposed to run on 9-9-9-27 at 1333 and will do at 1.50 but I use 1.59 for the 8 timings , also the board defaults the memory to run at 1.59..so you have to turn the v down manually if you want it at 1.50)

    see what clock you can get at the 1333mhz timings..jedec 3 i think it is on your memI dont see a 1600mhz profile :(

    For the xmp profile.. there are some timings that arent shown on cpuz..you might have to get a prog like pc wizard.or similar to read all the timings for the 1866.

    See what you can get with the memory at 1333 on cpu speed.Maybe 4.6 tested .. or higher (I have to use llc 4 for 4.6 and llc 3 for 4.8) then see if you can get it running at the 1866 at 1.59/1.6 with slightly looser timings as suggested by the other respondees :)
    What does the board specify for the minor memory timings using the xmp profile?.

    Hi
    i am also running at llc 5 and the ofset has been lowered. Now i am getting very similar temps to yours 62 maximum on intel burn test and prime 95 which is currently running. Speedstepping is disabled as you mentioned in the previous post but i think all c states are enabled. Will try to take some screenshots now
    Cpu says i am currently running at just under 1600mhz with no errors in prime so far so will see how things go
    i know hardly anything about RAM timings what do you mean looser sorry?

    Looser as the others suggested : a bigger number for the memory timing(s) .like my 8-8-8-22 at 1333 mhz is tighter than 9-9-9-27 that its certified to use at 1333mhz.

    smaller numbers at a particular speed means less "recovery time " for the memory banks .Yours are "binned" as being good to work at 1866, even tho not tested with the mbrd.

    What you could do,if happy enough with the 4.4 now is to bring the cpu speed down and test the memory timings for 1866, enter them manually even(the ones that are shown on cpuz for 1866,
    See how tight you can get them without errors and at what memory voltage..
    Check reviews for the memory if there are some out there.
    The reviewers usually try and tighten up the timings if they can to see what the memory will do and at what voltage.
    The memory works fine at 1866 at 4.2/4.3 cpu bench tests?.

    Like mine Ive tested from 7-7-7(wouldnt work at 1333mhz to 10-10-10 which it needs for 1600mhz just to get a feel for the memory and what it will do.
    The 1600 10-10-10 setting doesnt seem any better than 1333 8-8-8.

    The cr (command rate on your post shows as 2T for the 1866 profile ,what does it show as in the uefi when you use the 1866 profile ,does your 1600mhz setting work at 2t or 1t?and can you test the data transfer/bandwith at say 4.2 ghz for both running the memory at 1866 and 1600 to see what difference there is?
    To check properly you have to load and save(f10) then repost and enter the uefi again and see what value is listed .

    Oc UK .Ive bought stuff from them myself.mbrd n cpu and also one of my gx cards but their own brand psu's,yeh even the modular ones :
    They arent the greatest units ever, even from ocuk customer reviews and appear to look almost the same as a brand you can find on amazon UK for a low price.
    The reviws on amazon vary from bad to good,but the bad is often from those trying to overclock a more modern system and the good from those who put them on a system where theyre full "stated" capacity wont be used.
    If your happy the psu is a "good un" with good regulation etc nps.
    Oh heres the other ss with some of the monitoring displays different.

    you might need abit more cpu offset with a 2600k and hyperthreading enabled,i can run with it enabled at 4.5ghz,ram is at 2133mhz but its samsung green memory,vengeance wont go that high but 1600mhz is fine

    IMO, Wazza's advice for the CPU settings are right, but I'll add my ideas to those too. Also, trying to get a high OC and the highest memory speed at the same time is more difficult, to many variables at the same time. IMO, set the memory to say 1600, with whatever timings you see for that speed in CPU-Z's SPD tab. Then get the OC stable first, and then try to increase the memory speed.

    My take on CPU voltage settings. IMO, setting a manual CPU voltage to whatever worked for earlier generation CPUs, like the i7-900 series, and ones before that. The newer SB and IB CPUs are different, and the "old" ways do not automatically apply.

    I say set the CPU voltage to Auto. That allows the CPU to decide what it needs, and it can and does do just that. I have never found Auto to be restrictive for CPU voltage with SB or IB CPUs. The CPU will not kill itself on Auto either.

    Next, LLC. My ASR boards LLC is highest on '1', and lowest on '5'. There is a graph displayed when LLC is highlighted, showing what setting does what. Try a LLC of '2', which should be plenty. Setting it to '5' is the lowest or no LLC on my board, so '5' on yours may be no LLC at all.
