Here is my build below. I would like to see 5ghz. I have tried, and seen them core temps hit 100c with maximum heat test of prime95, and backed off. That was when I tried 1.35v and watching a youtube video discussed here before with settings. I am running at stock and 1.25v right now and stable to keep it cool till I figure this out. I know the Asus boards have a tendency to push too much V through the memory and cpu. So would like to get 5ghz, and have it not so hot either if thats possible. I am not delid. XMP is enabled for 3200.
Since I am a noob, and not very good with Asus boards, please tell me where to go to adjust the settings and what to adjust too.
KillaBandit, Very nice build, excellent choice of hardware Please post screenshots of Stress test with CPU-Z and HWmonitor or HWInfo, showing core speeds, temperatures and voltages, and screenshots of bios settings that have been changed, idle temps and volts, load temps and volts, with and without XMP enabled What are your ambient temps Screenshots posted not links please
There are overclock presets in your bios for 5Ghz, I believe 24/7 manual voltage and 24/7 adaptive voltage presets
Also there are many other threads here on 8700K overclocking, bios settings are very similar on X Formula, Code, Hero boards, maybe search threads here for examples
Not to be disrespectful but personally I rarely watch these videos, I prefer to read articles, reviews and view screenshots of information
Someone will probably take the time to follow posted links and guess what settings you have made but without actual screenshots of your bios settings posted and some kind of monitoring software I hesitate to do so, it's difficult enough helping someone remotely, the easier you make it to help the more likely you are of getting help
Tried that video, and this is all it got me below. But I was able to consistently keep 4.9-5ghz and no higher than 83-94c it seemed. Well, if you want me to try some different settings than the video, I can reset it, let me know what I should change then.
Your VCore seems a bit high for a 5.0 ghz overclock....suggest you lower your VCore to 1.28v manually with LL6....run Prime95 for a while...if your your not stable adjust VCore in increments of .50 until you reach stability....you should be able to attain stability in the 1.30v range....Once stable...I would suggest lowering your VCCIO and VCCSA voltages as I believe they are too high...my suggestion is to start with 1.15 volts for each...and work your way up unable you again achieve stability......You should see a difference in your temps as well.
