    Overclocking Assistance

    Hello!

    I am new to overclocking, just built a new system and am wondering why I am not reaching the numbers I've seen from similar systems.

    I know that it takes a lot of tweaking, just seeking a little guidance.

    I have a Maximus Extreme-z, i5 2500k, 8g Dominator-GT a Matrix GTX 580 Plat running an H100 water cooler and a Corsair AX850.

    Here are my latest 3d Mark scores
    HTML Code:

    I'm currently O'c'd to 5123 stable.

    Thanks for any help provided?

    Your score is in line with similar systems, clocked at about the same level.
    What is making you think your scores should be higher?

    Thank you for the reply. I guess my question is more on the OC itself. I was expecting I could get higher, but I've not been able to get a higher OC. Just curious what levels/speeds people with comparable systems are getting.

    5100MHz is a great clock, your likely at the limits of your chip/cooling.

    Hi Bada,

    Any chance you could post your bios specs? I have the same cpu and mb and can't get past 4.71ghz stable on prime. Also, I'm curious to what your temps are on full load.
    Thanks

    You do realise this was posted about 2 months ago and Bada has only had 2 post on the forum. It is unlikely he will reply. But it is possible I guess. You may want to make your own post asking for help with you OC but actually 4.7 is pretty good / averadge for a 2500k
