First Attempt O.C. 2700k Maximus Extreme Z

Still pretty new to the overclocking business, so to start I went into the bios and enabled manual under the "extreme tweaker" tab, was feeling brave so set v core to 1.35 and tried for a 5.0 over clock on the maximum turbo setting, windows booted up, went to open cpu-z and it crashed, lowered the max turbo to 4.8, occt ran for about a min and a half before crashing, so upped the vcore to 1.37, ran for about 10 minutes this time before crashing, so lowered the max tubro again to 4.6 (kept the 1.37 v tho) ran occt for 1 hour (1min idle at start 5 min idle at end) large data set -using all the cores, it passed this test thankfully, again this is just my starting point, im sure I have alot more to tweak, I kept my ram at 1600 and also kept hyper threading enabled.


Maximum temperature ranged in the 68-73 region however the CPUTIN was around 68 aswell it said the CPUTIN MAX was 127? so ocassionally it would read CPUTIN spiking at 127 (literally for a second) then drop back to 68ish degrees??

Sorry I cant give much more info but again still rather new to this, would you like any of the 14 files occt creates when the test finishes?

edite new idle temp reads 25 dgrees in asus ai suite II and 37 degrees in occt il go by occt's atm lol

You are running a little warm there if you are running the stock heatsink you should probably get an after market heatsink. Use the auto OC feature in TurbV EVO it will get you close to your max BCLK and multiplier and you can adjust from there to start with.

It will reboot a couple of times. don't stop. let him reach max.. In true rog spirit..

If your hardware is good, i think you should get 4,7-4,9..

tips> Make a to do list..

1. new cooler

When you reach 4,7 or more, i bet you want to hit the magic 5,0 ghz,

tips 2 - reapply thermal paste lol, thiink i messed it up when i was taking the pc apart trying to figure out why my pc wouldnt let me into bios lol


uodate - extreme mode maxed out at 105..6 x 44 1.35 vcore
