Overclock 2500k Issue
Posted 30 March 2012 - 01:34 AM
A couple of months ago i used this video to help me out with my overclock Overclock 2500K.
The only difference i've got from that guide is the "C1" which i had to enable or my cpu wouldn't donwclock when in idle and my Ram timings/voltage as it is on the ram sticker.
Asus P8P67 B3
Intel 2500k with Zalman CNPS11X Extreme
Asus GTX 460 Top 1Gb
Anteq Truepower 750 Blue
Samsung F3 1Tb
and i had 2x2Gb G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 CL6 6-8-6-24 1.5v
no problems so far, but yesterday i got a new pair of identical DDR sticks, and with that BIOS config i can't turn the pc on i had to change the DDR to 1333.
How may i get it back to 1600 stable? Should i increase Ram voltage or something else?
Thank you all.

Just load XMP and leave dimm voltage on auto.
Ah! I keep forgetting about simpler ways. XMP. Being old user have some problem like this. :-(

Just switched back to 1333 and 1.5v.
Changed back to 1333, with "6-8-6-24 2, 1.5v"(Ram sticker values)
and CPU-Z shows me this
So before doing what DrDeath said i just wanted to know if this is normal, mixed frequency and timings...

But, the whole thing is not normal. You should get 1600MHz @1.5V

Go to the Memory tab in CPU-Z...
Increase your VCCIO a little until you're stable. You most likely won't be stable with 4x2GB at 1600MHz, even if your timings got loosened to 9-9-9-24-1T. If you really want to see if you're stable at 1600MHz, loosen your timings. Once you're stable, you can tighten the timings a little and keep testing for stability.

How can I overlook that?
I think OP should try CL10 @1600.
