i7-7700k + 16GB G Skill Tridenz 3000, and Gigabyte GA-Z170MX Gaming 5

Hello,

Hope you are all doing well, I just got this new hardware, and I have been searching on the internet for a guide that will help me comprehend how to overclocked my i7-7700k on this mobo, I have already updated my bios, and my ram is working at max speed, (enabled XMP) when I fire up the UEFI. I have paired the i7-7700k with a Noctua DH-15. I know that this cooler can keep this CPU cold when overclocked, but I am not sure what would be the best settings to try out?

I have seen people successfully overclock it @4.9 @1.3 Volbt. (I have not tried this myself just yet)

Any advice, or help, or even links that will help me out would be so much appreciated it.

Thanks in advance.

A suggestion for future form revisions: 

Add a column for case. Cooling capacity is arguably the most important factor when OCing. The ability to intake and exhaust air can drastically affect CPU temps and may inhibbit maximum overclocks even when using the same hardware as someone else. 


I am whatever I am.

Some generic oem board too bad don't Overclock that chip. Still works though pretty cool, good backup.5650.JPG.9c91cec6655dc90b3438dcf3d7459095.JPG

I have an Intel core 2 quad q6600 in an Acer oem motherboard that doesn't support bios overclocking and I was this video 

 which shows someone using tape to somehow overclock it and a lot of comments say its real and works, I was wondering if it could potentially melt the tape and ruin the motherboard or what could happen? Most of the comments say it's safe but I would like to be sure

Well it seems the supermicro z270 benches one of the higher ones...

some playing around with though some still some errors reported going on at 5ghz..trying level 2 LLC...see what that does...so far looks good. 

 

I do like this one though.  A little hotter running out of the 3 tested but nothing major.

 

Overall some well done stuff.

Hello guys, cause I'm new in this stuff, I heard a guy on YouTube saying that the core i5-8400 with a base frequency of 2.8 GHz which I'm thinking about buying in the near future for a build  despite the fact it has a max turbo boost of 4 GHz, said something  about being locked, so it cannot be actually overclocked, wtf?

This is kind of hilariously awesome.  I went on LTT about to ask if anyone had done a scenario-based FAQ in terms of different CPUs with explanations of settings, then I found this sticky-thread.  Bless you all :D

Over 20,000 views!

 

Color ranking explanation(based on hours stress tested):

 

Red: Less than one hour (or just a CPU-Z Validation)

Orange: 1-3 Hours (or at least 40-50 passes with prime95)

Green: 4-6 Hours

Purple: 6+ Hours

 

 

 

Okay so I have a form all drawn up and in place, and it automatically adds entries to the DB spreadsheet. The form itself is fairly self explanatory, however I would happy to answer any questions that occur. If i missed something that you feel should be added to the form, (hopefully nothing blatantly obvious  :ph34r: ) let me know! I can edit the form and DB at anytime. Also i will be checking the DB spreadsheet to validate entries. If an entry comes through that doesn't match up to the photo, or if the entry comes without a photo it will be flagged yellow. This just means not verified, and it WILL stay in the DB. However if you want this flag removed pm me with your missing photo, etc and I will update your entry and remove the flag :). If you have multiple machines, or CPUs  to swap out with, please add them! Lets make this database huge! Lastly, yes I realize that my entry is not OC'd at all but that was just me testing my form. I'm only on stock atm, so when i actually have the time to tinker with my PC and have money for a cooler i may add another entry :P

Update 10/16: With a new Cinebench Release I would like to ask all new entries to be measured in that version of release! All old entries are fine, but can be updated if you wish to have a up to date entry :). To update your cinebench score, run the new build (which will be linked in the form) and take a screen cap of it and pm it to me!

Thanks in advance!

Update:

Just in case any of you didn't realize, my new method of letting you know if an entry has been approved or not yet is if the Intel, or AMD spaces have been matched up to the color code. If you notice that some entries haven't, don't worry about it. I'm only human and I will make sure I will update your entries the next chance I can :)

 

All new Haswell entries will require a main tab of cpu-z and a RAM tab of cpu-z as well. Users that do not include both will be flagged orange in their image link section. Feel free to PM me and I will update your submission if you need it revised!

 

Update 2: Cinebench optional tab created! I would love to see users either update their existing entries by PMing me their scores, and I would love to see all new entries include one! This way we can see how CPUs at given frequencies compete! Link to the Cinebench page is included in the submission form for your convinience :)

Something like this is great! Makes my life very easy :P I'm looking for:

1. CPU Load (shown through something like aida, or just the windows performance tab on the task manager)

2. CPU-Z Open on the main tab (and a CPU-Z RAM tab for Haswell entries)

3. Some sort of temperature monitoring suite

4. A stress test software (aida, prime, intel tuning utility, etc.) Something that records the total time stressed(built in for aida or intel tuning utility), or a way to show me how long the processor was in fact stressed for.

This doesn't work anymore fyi

Is this database thing still going or is it dead?  I have a Xeon X5482 (duals) both clocked at 3.6GHz and it's running rather stable.  I can certainly run Prime95 for a few hours and provide data for it, but it looks like the database form may be a goner.

Too bad the database is dead. As a relative newcomer to overclocking I could have used information for a Ryzen 5 2600 on a ASUS B450-F.

I got a golden chip with my i5  8600k, i can OC to 5ghz with 1.29V stable.  I don't know if i should use 1.42V for 24/7 use at 5.4ghz, my current stable overclock for daily use is 5.3ghz at 1.355V.  Haven't got any crash since i did my benchmark.  I can even do 5.5ghz @1.47V stable below 80C, here some pics. (off course the chip is delid)  

 

Here are the pics, from left to right:  5.3@1.355V no AVX Uncore x51 , 5.5Ghz @ 1.47V 5.3@1.355V no AVX Uncore x51  (is actually a top 10 in hwbot amateur rank) and finally the 5.00ghz no AVX uncore x48@ 1.29V 

 

Should is try 5.4ghz with 1.4V

Been stress testing my server to hell and back for the past couple of weeks as it has been seeming to be unstable. With half my RAM installed, it's been running Prime95 for a couple of days. When I get home I'll see if it's still alive and if it is, you may get the longest Prime95 run on here.
