Not so much related to photography but I figured we have more then enough knowledge here. So here is my set up first of all:
Asus b8Z77v-LK mobo
intel i5 3575k ivy bridge
8 gigs G.skill ripjaw sdram PC3 17,000 (2x4 ram cards)
coolermaster hyper 212 cpu cooler with duel 120mm fans.
Nvidea gtx 550 ti 1ghz video card
SSD + 2 gb raid 1 HD system
7 140mm case fans
The issue i'm having is involved with overclocking. I've tried the provided AI suite II auto tuning and manual tuning mode (With in the program) and the most I can get is 103mhz x 36 = 3800 mhz.
The only reason why I'm getting this is due to the turbo boost which increases the cpu ratio by 2.
With in manual mode (Using the program) I don't have the ablility to change the CPU ratio or the indiv. core freq.
Using the BIOS AI tweeker in advanced mode I am maxed at a CPU ratio of 34, If I type in anything more then that it'll switch to auto.
I've increased the voltage to around 1.25v and worked at stablizing the voltage (which isn't a huge deal as I'm just going for a minor clock of 4.2mhz)
Does any one have any ideas as to what can be done to resolve this issue? I'm a bit new to over clocking (But not computers, so I have a basic understanding of whats going on)
Ivy bridge bclk can't be raised more then 105 which effects other things too.
