    overclock i7 2600k in 2020 asus p8p67 pro 3.1

    hey guys! i have a i7 2600k and i want to overclock it, i have a p8p67 pro 3.1 and a phanteks tc14pe air cooler. i just want a safe overclock, this pc will prob be running 24/7 but not necessilary gaming that much,
    i went into the bios and set
    AI tweaker to 44 x 100
    LLC SET to high (not the highest setting)
    offset - 0.03V

    and so far i am running OCCT and it hasnt crashed, i went up to 4.5 and windows locked up so i came down to 4.4ghz.

    temps are okay, around 60 celcius durring occt and cpuz v core hits 1.320max and is between 1.3-1.320 during the stress test

    what do you guys think of this overclock? should i change anything?

    idrk what llc does or how to tweak this overclock better so i was looking for tips and tricks

    hey guys! i got my first bsod today it was during gaming randomly and im sure its due to the oc since i dont really game that much.
    my current settings are 4.4 ghz i7 2600k with asus mobo, llc is at 50% setting (asus mobo) and offset is -0.030V.
    If I make the offset -0.025V will that solve my bsod during gaming problem? or help solve it?

    i read somewhere or maybe im wrong but isn't offset the voltage at idle or something? if so then i dont understand how changing the offset would affect anything when my bsod's only happen when i am gaming.

    i could be wrong and if i am then i think changing the offset from -0.030 t0 -.025 should make my oc stabler / perfect.

    right?

    Hi,

    so before I upgraded my system back in December 2018 to the i9 9900k, I had the same system just like you.

    If i remember correctly mine was running at 4.7GHz. If I remember correctly i left all settings on auto and just changed the multiplier to 47. In your case it would be 45.

    My bet is that by using the negative offset you are taking needed voltage away from the cpu and that makes your system BSOD.
    Either leave it at auto or set a fixed voltage.

    Auto will tend to push a bit more voltage then needed but you can get a general idea how much voltage the cpu needs. Then you can start working from there.

    Here is a guide that i found which i used back in the day.

    I hope this helps .

    thanks so much for the reply! yeah i read alot of people like fixed voltage and i seem to have fixed the issue by lowering the negative offset. when i turn auto voltage on then it just goes to 1.37v so i obviously have to turn it to get it perfect but what i like about offset and llc is that i can have a lower voltage at idle it seems.

    idk theres so many conflicting views on the forums ahah, alot of people dont know what v droop and llc is so it makes it hard for new comers like me to understand but it seems like as long as the oc is working stable it doesnt really matter what the oc settings are as long as voltage and temps are under control what they seem to be for my system

    maybe if someone else could chime in with llc settings and offset with the asus motherboards because i heard different manufactures have diff v droop and llc settings which makes it easier for me to compare my oc to soemone also with asus

    Don't be afraid to give high idle voltage for lower LLC (provided it's not dangerously high) I bet you could take it to even medium with voltage bump on Vcore. It should be healthier and lower temps for you. And with 60C I guess you have a new cooler or you cleaned your cooler / refreshed paste. That's good, you seem to have way more overhead. Crank the voltage and see where it can go. I'm guessing 47x-48x but it also depends on how long the cpu has been used so far.
    Now I realized you're using offset. LLC for offset doesn't tend to do much, it seems to be just an idle voltage bump from what I can tell, but if it is still doing overshoots of voltage after big loads like it does in manual voltage, then you still will want a lower LLC.
