Hi,

I just built a gaming pc with an ASRock Fatality z170a Gaming K4. I tried instant flashing to the bios provided in the overclocking guide for my mobo. I used the specified settings for OCing in the bios:

BCLK 122
Voltage 1.325, level 1
DRAM 2600, XMP settings

I save the settings and reboot and nothing happens. It tries to start and just hangs with a black screen. So I tried dialing everything back to find something stable. Nothing aside from the stock settings for the bios work.

Here is my build:

ASRock Fatality z170a Gaming K4 motherboard
Intel i5-6500 CPU
16 GB DDR4 2400
Samsung 750 EVO 250 GB SSD (Boot Drive)
Windows 10 Pro
NO GPU YET, using onboard Intel HD530 graphics

I see everyone else is able to overclock this CPU but for some reason I cannot. What can I try? What am I not doing correctly? Any help is appreciated.

It's because you're trying to use the integrated graphics in combination with non-K overclocking.

Non-K overclocking is achieved by disabling power management features inside the CPU. Among other things, it governs the integrated graphics. When you enable non-K overclocking (typically if BCLK >102.9 MHz), the power management is disabled and along with it all the things it governs. This includes the integrated graphics, C-states and AVX-256.

Long story short: you cannot use integrated graphics with non-K overclocking. You need a discrete graphics card.

Thank you! I figured that was the only thing that I could figure my build was lacking vs others. I just wasn't seeing it stated anywhere.

Hi @Brycter! Nice to see you around.

I think the overclocking capabilities of your hardware will be quite limited considering you don't have the -K version of the Core i5. You can try increasing the BCLK a bit to get maybe 5% increase on air cooling.

The ram you will have to overclock in BIOS, this is usually try and error, hardw way - for vga oc, there are several tools which might help you at getting best out of the 570, msi afterburner or nvidia inspector for example can overclock it via software. We have a download area where a lot of tools are listed

Awesome I had a overclock profile in my bios for my ram that kicks it to 1866. My motherboard supports a oc genie. So been using that. I use precision oc for overclocking my GPU now but I'll check out the others. I can't seem to increase my base clock by anything with out my comp restarting so gonna have to leave that alone I guess. Maybe I'll upgrade to a new I5 k series. I really need to upgrade my GPU but I can't seem to find a decent bang for buck better than my current one.
