I have what used to be an overclocked 2500k on a p8p67 pro rev 1 board.
It ran a 4.6 Ghz overclock fine on 1.32 or thereabouts for the last few years.
Just recently I have had ssd probs with around 40-60 bad sectors (not sure if related)
The mobo reported to me on several occasions while troubleshooting the ssd and boot problems that I had a failed overclock.
So I restted the defaults on the bios and re-installed windows then went back to set my original overclock.
This is the first of many problems I have had today.
When I adjust the multi anywhere from stock to 46 and boot into windows, fire up cpu-id before it freezes and it will show that the BCLK is set to about 70ish Mhz, but the core clock was still 3300mhz, so basically 3300 / 45 = 73mhz.
Whatever setting I change in the bios would not change the outcome of 3300mhz in windows. If I et the multi to 40 the BCLK will be around the 83mhz mark. Windows will pretty much freeze or be slow like 1 frame per minute.
I have tried many different thing in the bios and changed settings but no luck. I cant even run stock without cpu-id reporting very low BCLK speeds and then windows will freeze.
The BCLK will drop from my manual setting of 100 in bios. dunno how it changes?
I cannot get more than stock speed from the 2500k reported from cpu-id
Optimized defaults don't seem to work either. as BCLK or the multi somehow changes.
Cannot upgrade the bios from 3207 as "bios is not efi" or something similar.
Looking like the mobo or cpu is on its last legs?
If I must replace, what should I get? im looking at the 4690k and gigabyte z97-d3h
Is that a good board? I should still be able to use my current RAM.
Sorry for the rushed 1/2 wall of text, im tearing my hair out today.
