So, I have tried overclocking and it never seems to work. I can get it to change to higher clocks and whatnot, but I never can make it stable. I tried following guides on very general overclocking steps and I try to start with 4.5 ghz just because it seems like an entry point, but even at 1.35 vcore it just isn't stable. I know this should be plenty of juice, but alas it doesn't like it.

So, barring some sort of overclocking guru coming to my aid, I am about to be resigned to having a very well chilled, stock 2500k on my hands...

Specs:
2500k
gigabte ga-z68xp-ud3
CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Full rig on OCN: http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/3791483

You should never do a massive leap in overclocking "to start". The proper way is to incrementally increase the clock speed until it's unstable, then roll back to the one that worked. If you can't get what everyone else gets, oh well. The part wasn't designed to operate at that speed anyway.

Hmm... This time, left everything as fail safe, except I changed my Turbo settings to 45, 44, 43, 42... Passed IBT on extreme....

Maybe I should leave everything on auto and just up the turbo a bit?

Edit: Wow, on auto it feeds the vcore a lot... Goes between 1.38 and 1.404 on EasyTune6...

Okay, I received help on the issue... My friends at Overclock.net helped me with the problem.. posted it there just before I posted here, and I got more feedback there...

Also, combined with that I feel that OCN is more of my home these days than MPC, I guess I am changing folding teams...

I was on team MPC for a couple years... Just got my rig for gaming/ folding in November so I could play Skyrim. Folding more often these days, and actually doing good. Gonna fold more next semester when I don't have to turn my PC off at night... So even though I am rank # 56 on MPC in terms of points this week, I will do better next semester. However, I am leaving before then.

So... Have a good day, and good luck to future folding!

Oh... my folding user page...

So you're ditching us because, in FOUR HOURS TIME, no one here had a solution for you?

Wow.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out; pretty thankless.

I also remind you we have many more topics/subject then OC.net (yes, I frequent both places).

Sorry we didn't drop everything to baby you.
