this actually helped a lot! I was actually able to boot and test at 5GHZ!!!
The guy in the video has almost the same set up as me and clarified a couple of settings that were special
to this MB alone.
Right now I'm stress testing at 4.9Ghz, and everything is going well, although I get a little unstable at times but thats just due to voltage calibration that I can easily iron out.
He pretty much said:
"set the following...[@ CPU config]"
This settings are not recommended to be disabled IMO, they are only to improve stability and commonly used on temporary extreme OC, not daily use
C3 State: Disabled
C6 State: Disabled
Package C state Support: Disabled
CPU thermal Throttling: Disabled <-This Kinda scares me to disable, even though he said other wise
"set the following...[@ OC Tweaker]"
CPU ratio: Manual -> 50
Internal PLL OverVltg -> Enable
Intel Speedstep -> Enable
Turbo Boost power limit: Manual
->Short Duration power Limit [w]: 180
->Long Duration Power Limit [w]: 140
->Long Duration Power Limit [sec.]: 1
Additional Turbo voltage: Auto
Core Current Limit: 150
Spread Specrum: Disabled
DRAM config: All auto except for XMP <-he said to actually lower the speed from its native 1600 to 1333
Power Saving: Off
Core Vltg: 1.520 <- seems about right for a 5Ghz from my experience.
CPU LLC: lvl 2 <- this is a very crucial setting: lvl2 is recommended as it keeps the voltage synced, lvl1 will over volt
DRAM: 1.6v <-I changed this myself, because I know this RAM needs more than its native voltage, specially while running x4 sticks
PCH: Auto [1.059]
CPU PLL: 1.709 <- he said to actually lower this from default to save prevent heat, this is a first
VTT: Auto [1.051]
VCCSA: Auto [0.925]
-Well so far everything seems great, I think the culprit were either the LLC, Turboost voltage settings, or CPU PLL voltage
. Nonetheless the 4.6 wall was broken! now Im just trying to find the stable sweet spot and keep my CPU running at my good old 4.8Ghz speed.
