post #5151 of 7108
Thought I might take a little time this morning to help those trying to use offset voltage. I had followed Raja's guide and gave up the voltages was just to high it seemed. Now I have developed a different method for finding the sweet spot with offset voltage.

First thing do not use auto. Auto is auto offsetting the voltage. I booted with auto at 4.8 and had 1.575 (yikes). Temps was fine so rebooted and tweaked it. Decided to try for x50 with the offset. Booted again in Auto... Voltage was 1.65 (holy crap). Temps was still fine so rebooted with offset of -.150 and it would not reboot. Took me awhile to figure it out... Here is a alert from voltage/temp logger "
[01/25/2012 at 08:01 pm] Vcore 1.648 Abnormal"

The auto is tweaking offset, I highly recommend starting with + or - .005 and whatever overclock you choose. This will prevent these huge spikes in voltage. I start with -.005. With this OC of x50 using offset voltage I had to change to the + . Using +.0350 I believe or there abouts. Windows / CPUid showing 1.424 now and when the clocks drop to 16 it drops to just over 1 volt.

The auto is scary but overclocking with offset is not bad if you make sure not to use auto and start with +/- .005

Hope this helps someone thumb.gif

Maximus IV GENE-Z UEFI Overclocking Guide


UEFI BIOS settings for easy overclocking the Maximus IV GENE-Z:

•Keep all Turbo Mode Parameters at AUTO or the highest possible value to unlock overclock restrictions due to Intel thermal control.
•Ai Overclock Tuner can be set to Manual to unlock BCLK/PCIE OC related options, set it to X.M.P. to load the XMP Profile off the DRAM module.
•Turbo Ratio can be set to Per Core Mode to allow higher CPU multiplier support, but with the cost of not being able to make CPU Turbo Ratio adjustments within the OS. In general applications, it is recommended to set it to All Cores Mode to allow CPU Turbo Ratio adjustment under OS.
•Internal PLL Overvoltage can be set to Enabled to allow more CPU Turbo Ratio overclocking margin with the cost of the S3/S4 resume functionality. I.e. your system will not resume be able to resume from standby with this option enabled.
•Memory Bandwidth Booster can be set to Enabled for better DRAM performance or Disabled for better OC margin.
•EPU Power Saving Mode can to be set to Disabled to prevent additional voltage drop due to EPU power saving scheme.
•Load-Line Calibration can to be set to Extreme to ensure the CPU Vcore is not to drop below the voltage level set by the user regardless of the current consumption of the CPU. This will be useful to achieve the same level of overclocking result with a relatively lower Vcore setting.
•VRM Frequency can to be set to Manual to allow manual selection of a fixed VRM operating frequency. The higher the frequency, the faster the response, which yields a relatively stable delivery of CPU Vcore for the final push to gain just a little more BCLK overclocking capability for the CPU used.
•Phase Control can be set to Extreme to keep the active power phase of the CPU PWM at max for the whole time, instead of powering down phases when CPU idles. This gains a little more margin for the CPU when been pushed to its extreme.
•Duty Control can be set to Extreme to force the PWM circuit to function with respect to its maximum possible current delivery instead of a balanced temperature for a better deliver of power to the CPU. This can also help to gain just a little more margin when trying to push the BCLK frequency to its max.
•CPU Current Capability can be set to 140% to override the level of over current protection of the CPU, allowing the CPU to drain more current from the CPU PWM, delivering more margins for the CPU to clock just a little higher.
•iGPU Load-Line Calibration can be set to Extreme to ensure the iGPU Vcore is not to drop below the voltage level set by the user regardless of the current consumption of the iGPU. This will be useful to achieve the same level of overclocking result with a relatively lower Vcore setting.
•iGPU Current Capability can be set to 140% to override the level of over current protection of the iGPU, allowing the iGPU to drain more current from the PWM, delivering more margin for the CPU to clock just a little higher.
•Likewise, the same power options are also available DRAM and VCCSA/VCCIO (DRAM controller). Raise the switching frequency, enable full phase control and disable over-current protection can help to deliver a little more OC margin.
•CPU Spread Spectrum options can be disabled for better OC capability.
•It is recommended to keep other options at their default position “Auto” for better OC capability; utilizing the OC experience of the ROG specialist team.

The Noctua Dh-14 IMO but realize its very large. I have a PWM version super quiet. Cools great I highy recommend it. The only issue you might have is the Ram and video card. It is doable though either get low profile ram or raise the push fan up. Ill include a pic of my machine with the DH-14 in it and you can see just how big the beast.

You'll not find a better kit for cooling and still remains QUIET like the Noctua

There's lotsa competition out there.......but NOTHING better comparing cooling and db levels

Hey guys,

I want to pick one of these mobo's up tomorrow, main question though, will I have access to the pci x4 slot with the asus gtx570 dcII? Its 3 slots so I imagine I would unless the pci-e slots are too close, I just need to put a wifi adapter in there since I have to game with wifi.

Next gpu will me a dual slot though biggrin.gif Also want to look into setting up a router as a repeater is it? That way I can eliminate the adapter altogether.

the pic I put up shows the lowest pci slot and it should be clear of a 3 slot in the top pcie slot. The fancy light up power and reset might be tricky to access with a card in that slot but I am 99% sure you wont have a issue. Anyone with a DCII that can say for sure?

I'm thinking my Galaxy could/would be considered 3 slot. That being the case,
can't see issues you getting a WiFi card sqeezed in there.

yup thats 3 slot or looks it to me. You can see the fans are protruding into what would be your third pci slot down.

Thanks guys, Yeah so long as it fits Im good. If anyone has a pic with an asus gtx 570/580 that would be great or if they chime in, but Im pretty sure it will fit. The only bummer is I wont be able to sli my gtx570, Only thing that makes me wanna go with the p8z68v pro, but I have loved the quality of the rog crosshair v on my amd I wanna stick with it when I go intel. Have read great reviews on this for overclocking, that and also hear intel 2500k overclock way easier than amd lol
