Yes i started with running bios eztuning first but that gave me no higher then x46 with positive offset auto, ai suite III tests passed 4.8, once, but final settings were always 4700Mhz, time when i did a 5 loop IBT test that sent cores to 93c and Vcore to 1.502. so i started going with manual at 4.7 but couldn't pass OCCT 64 bit, 1h, long/heavy string even after i set manual voltage at 1.430v LLC5 wich is my comfort limit, at those settings i tried moving to x46 and 101 bclock but failed also, found stability in 1h OCCCT, many realbench hours and 5h 16T x264 costum with 1.430vcore, LLC4.
trying to lower the voltage but best right now, (as i type; passed OCCT 1h and im 40min. to pass realbench cpu test 8h run) is x46, manual 1.415/1.420Vcore, LLC 5, and HW says my max Vcore was during OCCT at 1.440V, minimum was/is 1.408V, imo this is too high for x46
asus multicore oc assist is on, should i disable it? cpu current cap. is at 140%, phase control at extreme, Intel virtualization tech is off, VSA is set at 1.90 manual, VDRAM is auto 1.32V but manual set RAM to 3000Mhz of my trindent Z.
This is all i recall right now of changes i made after bios/asus tunings. When realbench finishs i will look up ai suite for more settings before i start x264 16T 8h 52loops
Edit: VSA 1.90v to 1.190v sry all
