Raspberry Pi 2 Stable and Unstable Overclock Values

Tested Overclock Values – Failures and Successes

This page contains sets of overclock values which I have experimented with on my Raspberry Pi 2. It forms an appendix to the main post: Overclocking and Stability Testing the Raspberry Pi 2 – Part 1: Overclocking

On stock Pi 2 hardware, without any cooling solutions (besides a naturally vented case), the final maximum settings for CPU, GPU, RAM, and voltage were:

arm_freq=1050
core_freq=525
sdram_freq=450
over_voltage=3

The following is a set of various attempted overclock setting values extracted from Config.txt – all values except tested, working, entries are commented (initial ‘#’ character)

Test values were left in the config file to progressively narrow down a stable set of values.

#note: do not set force turbo with over voltage - voids warranty
