i7-2600K overclocking questions - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I think you should use the smallest llc setting you have available for anything over 4ghz

Vdroop is normal not just in computing but nearly anything that is plugged into a socket that requires power. Appliances draw more current under heavy load. Like an electric motor for example


The easiest way to describe it is if your driving a car along a straight road at a given speed then all of a sudden the road starts to climb you need to apply more gas to keep the car at the same speed. Same thing here, LLC is there to help and will do no damage aslong as you only set it to the lowest level available for 4ghz anything over 4.5ghz requires a higher level of llc

Basically. At 4.0 you should be able to use everything on Auto. If you use an offset of lets say -(minus)0.040 your idle volts should be low and at load it should be at whatever it needs to be, maybe a little higher/lower.

If 0.040 gives you a BSOD after running prime95 blend test within an hour, try 0.030. Never go +0.000. It's not needed.

Using offset usually gives your lower voltages and still the same stability as with using a fixed vcore.

I gave up using a fixed vcore, now only using offset.
Finally got it. I set offset to -0.100, idle vcore is ~0.880V and under Prime95 Blender vcore ~1.159. I ran it for about half a hour and no blue screen, so I think this setup is fairly stable, right? Anyway thank you a lot, now I'm pretty happy with my rig.

I changed LLC to Regular, the lowest setting and now it works pretty well. Thanks
