It is odd but I've heard one other guy say he had an easier overclock with bclk x multi than multi alone. Who knows why or what's really going on, maybe just 'incorrect' stress testing.
EXPERIMENT #19511256 Official: TonicX
The BCLK question is a real onion and since there are literally infinate variables(Different stress test, different hardware, different color nail polish on your cpu, i will do some good old empirical science.
1. Test trials begin on my render rig using the Ivy Bridge validated AIDA64 System Stability Test
2. Fans will be set 30-60 [40%power ate 30* scaling to reach full 100% fan power at 60*
3. MOW techniques will not be implimented (MOW = Minnesota Open Window)
4. The Case will remain stationary with both side panels off
5. the OC settings will remain where they have been for the last 24+ hours call it Core Speed BcLK vs No BcLK
senerio A. Core speed 4897.8 Mz x47.0 , Bus Speed 104.21 MHz Core Voltage 1.464 Offset Enabled
senerio B. Core speed 4900 Mz x49.0 , Bus speed 100 MHz Core Voltage 1.464 Offset Enabled
6. Data will be shared Live with OCN official Delided Ivy Crew via my Gaming rig Quad Core 775 Gigabyte
7. As a scientist I no longer 'Care" and let go of all bias. I SIMPLY WANT TO KNOW.
8. This test is not 24/7 as I do not undertake Render session with that timeframe but 36-48-or 72 hours cranked is not uncommon.
9. Purpose: Stress-Testing Computers
10. Risks: Stress-Testing Members
Any member feedback is welcome!
especially anyone familiar with AIDA64 v2.80.2300 extreme software
IF IT AINT BROKE THEN YOU DIDN'T OVERCLOCK IT ENOUGHT
