How can I protect the integrated VRM in case the liquid metal touch it? Some people say use nail polisher and still shorted. Thanks
After 2 months of usuage, my CPU temperature begin to climb to upper 70s during gaming. So I took my computer apart and clean off IHS, heatsink and the CPU die with rubbing alcohol. Then I promptly applied MX-2 between IHS/Die and Heatsink. For some strange reason, this time my prime95 load temperature dropped down to 80C???? Prime95 Small FFT Stock Paste (Was using 1.3v vcore 1.175v cache) 97-98-96-100 then shut down after 3 minutes of running. After delid with MX-2...
If it only requires 1x 6pin power connector, then I'm in for one.
After I turn down my memory from 10-10-10-30 2T to 10-11-11-32 2T, system seems to be stable now even with 1.28v vcore applied at 4.6ghz. I guess I will stop here until I get better TIM under the IHS.
4.6ghz at 1.295v is the minimum vcore I need to maintain stability. 2200mhz RAM 10-10-10-30 2T is the max I can run for my 30nm samsung. I guess I just got a bad overclocker. Maybe I will buy some CLU later and see if I can push it further. My hyper 212 evo lapped is not enough to keep the temperatures in check with 1.3v+.
With DRAM Performance Mode changed from Enabled to Auto, I was able to run 4.6ghz again at 1.3v, guess RAM is the one that really messed me up big time. I will go home tonight and see if I can lower the vcore even more and still maintain stability. 4.5ghz CPU + 1.25v with DRAM Performance Mode Enabled was fine, 4.6 wasn't.Edit: How much the following voltage I need to add in order to hit 2400mhz DRAM with 4 sticks?System Agent Voltage Offset = 0.035CPU Analog IO...
When I have everything set to default, my CPU vcore is at 1.042v, CPU cache is at 1.042v also. I will follow your advice and try 35 cache, 1.95v VIN and 1600mhz ram tonight. The XMP file for my 30nm samsung ram as were rated 1600mhz 11-11-11-28 @ 1.35v. If I leave my RAM voltage at auto, my board will automatically detect as 1.585v??
Do I really have a bad overclocker/degradation? Initially I was able to reach 4.6ghz at 1.3v prime95 stable and recently I begin to notice my system becoming unstable. After revert back to stock and re-test my ram at 2200mhz, passed prime95 and memtest86 with flying colors. Then I test my system again at 4.0ghz core 4.0ghz cache with 1.1v CPU vcore and 1.15v CPU cache, 100% stable again, then I raise my multiplier to 45x CPU, cache stay at 40x and increased my vcore to...
Maybe this can be a nice upgrade from my 7870.
Mine is 4.6ghz stable at 1.3, 4.7 I need like 1.375v...
