Power limits and overclocking

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So im thinking that my unstable 5ghz overclock on my 10600k can be solved by playing a bit with power limits.

Those are the settings thay i have in my board:

Any ideas on good settings?

I dont want to crank it up all the day

I looked at the settings that are on the 5ghz 10600k thats available on silicon lottery and it says  the package power limit is 180w

Power limits won't affect stability, rather they tune the Turbo boost of a CPU, making it downclock if the power draw is too high. Ideally if you're having stability issues you'll want to disable turbo boost entirely and run a static clock, then slowly introduce power saving features.


Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 3000 MT/s DDR4 Fedora 32 x86_64

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3 Fedora 32 x86_64

I don't think that would help because that's for Intel turbo boost so those settings are telling the cpu how much power it can draw to turbo up but for a overclock your telling the cpu to run at 5.0ghz  no matter the power limit. so the only way to help stabilize your overclock is to cool the chip down or increase voltage

I do have a static 4.8ghz clock

If that's the case, why do you have turbo parameters? Looks to me like you've overclocked via turbo ratio limits, which can still downclock to base frequency, or lower if EIST is enabled.
