Communal Assistance / Re: Who is the culprit Process / Motherboard / PSU?
« on: February 07, 2016, 08:09:55 am »
So next time this happens turn the pc off and then yank the power cord off the psu, or if it has a on/off switch turn psu off. Now hold down the computer power on button for 20 or 30 seconds. This will discharge all the capacitors in the PC. Now plug the power cords back in and start the pc, it might startup normally.

So something like this happened  to me , it usually means some components are failing due to fatigue and their warranty ending :P . In my case my VGA was first to go, followed by the PSU, after that my mobo. All the said products worked for about a year after their manufacturer warranty ended.

For me it's the shipping is always fast...max 2 weeks anyways COMPLAINS!

Some buggers don't know what they are doing and they just add cash to our price quote
" Oh i have to type this shit also must add 15$"
always send 3 quote prices at an interval of 10mins and check the cheapest!

Now i don't personally order from kapruka as they charge too much tax and shipping,thanks to EGS now i haven't logged onto kapruka in age's ! 

Good to know, I thought kapruka shipping and tax prices were higher when I tried to order 16gigs of RAM and a motherboard. Ordered the ram few days back didnt order the mobo. Gonna give EGS a visit for that.

Did you try copying the game files to a folder named downloading in steamapps folder. IIRC steam creates a folder with the appid number of the game your downloading, after the download finishes the game files are copied to steamapps/common folder.

But I have seen the PCI-Express slot getting broken due to heavy graphics card in a H61. Don't know whether it happens nowadays.

This also happened with my Asus P8P67 Pro.Atleast it took 3 years and a asus 6950 DCII which is a heavy triple slot graphic card to kill the slot ;D

I checked my receipts the mobo is 4 yrs old.

gl and hf guys :)

Looking forward to this match :D

Youre running i7. Whyyyy would you need to oc?
Im just saying why put your i7 in more risk (even though its a small risk) to speed up something that can never bottleneck your gaming performance?
To increase power consumption ofc and and run teh monthly power bill through teh roof :P Jokes aside ur correct I don't need this overclock for gaming, but i do see gains when I am transcoding anime to mini mkv using meGUI ( new hobby ftw :P)

its cool up to 80 on IBT coz when your are in a game or some thing your temps wont go that far up . And with your cooler i think 4.5 wont be a problem 
I dont want to risk going upwards of 70c on this processor so I am gonna see what I can do abt improving thermals first, till then 4Ghz it is.

Use the following guides.



Thanks for the links  :)

65 is pretty alright for temperature and id say your tpaste is ok. i dont understand this "vcore 1.120-1.128 :offset -1.135" is your oc volts less than your stock volts ? . Dam good rig btw, love your psu
This chip is 4ghz stable @ at less than stock vcore which is 1.160 :D . I used offset option in the bios to adjust the vcore value rather than using the constant vcore coze when forcing constant vcore, the vcore value wont go down like the clock speeds when at idle. The down side to using offset i guess is the vcore fluctuates a bit(Mine jumps from 1.120 to 1.128. My guess is this is due to vdroop.).

you're on correct way..

temps seem decent..
Thanks mate ;D

4GHz is nothing. Try 4.5GHz. You might have to increase Vcore to around 1.3V, Load Line Calibration to max or a notch less. Keep the temps below 80C. That should do.

One more thing. You will have to use Prime95 instead of LinX or Intel Burn Test as the latter doesn't seem effective at stability testing for SB. but it is still the best tool to check your cooling performance.

I don't really have any experience overclocking the SB though. just stuff i gathers from other forums. btw, check some youtube videos with your mobo. i'm sure there are.
Yup 4.5ghz is my goal but I am freaked out when I see my temps go over 70c xD and user on forums I read through tell not to go over 70c, but I am not sure if they are telling this since summers are hot where they live.
I do use prime95 for stability tests, never used linx or IBT.

Thanks everyone for the advice keep posting more :D

I finally got sum free time in my hands to mess about ocing my pc.

PC Specs are as follows-
Core i7 2600k cooled by a cm hyper 212+
8gb of corsair vengeance ram @1600mhz
Asus p8p67 pro
Asus HD 6950
Seasonic x750
Cm 690 II Casing

First of all I suck @ applying TIM to that cooler :P so I need you guys to tell me if my temps are ok or if I need to do a new TIM job xD

@stock clocks(stock vcore 1.160) my idle temps are @ 38-41c and load temps top out at 60c after a hour of prime 95 blend mode.

@4ghz (vcore 1.120-1.128 :offset -1.135) Idle at 40c and load temps 65c @1 hour with no errors

So suggestions/advice please :D

Well, for that price you probably can get a casing with better cooling, but looks are debateable dude. It's very subjective, so while you may not like it, others might, and vice versa :)

Btw, for those of you who need XL-ATX support, Might I suggest the Aerocool Xpredator. They've got them at Lapzone (Rs. 19000 as I recall), both the Black and the Evil Black editions, and I personally love the casing (Bought one and very very happy with it)! Not to be too much of a fanboi here, but I would take it over the HAF-X anyday :D

FML I did not know this was there when I went to get my CM 690 T_T
Btw can the side panel fan lights be turned off, that would be super. Lights are cool and all when you wanna show off your rig to a friend otherwise they are just a pain :P

Power cables are routed whats left to route are the front panel cable connectors. 6950 is the Direct CU model.
I am not sure if I will unlock the shaders on the 6950 though, but we'll see.

I just dont have time atm to play around with rig (Also its damn heavy :S )

Thanks for the suggestions man, I appreciate it :)

UEFI bios is da bomb love it xD (Mouse sensitivity needs work in teh asus bios though :( )
