I'm probably the least qualified to answer here, especially with regards to specific manual OC settings, but I will say that each chip will have different limits.
Of course, I just went into the BIOS and selected a minor 4.2 auto OC...so someone more qualified will hopefully answer. wink.gif

thanks smile.gif

That's just crazy. Stuff like that is only made for self promotion, like pens, rulers, calculators and stress balls. Brian sounds like red stapler guy.

Overclocking Question

Yes, I have been plodding through the guides and continue to do so, but if someone could answer this without having a neckbeard forum nazi freakout, I would be grateful. smile.gif


My idle temps (yes...I know, they are not important) are about 5 deg C higher at idle 1.6 when target freq is set to 4.2 compared to 1.6 when target freq is set to AUTO (3.8)

I have VCore phase control set to Optimized...and VCore LL calibration set to 25%. I also tried 50% and 75%, but 25 and 50 appear to be the suggested values for 4.2 GHz.



When CPU level up is set to 4.2 GHz, my idle 1.6 VID is around 1.0 and my VCore is at 1.304. At 4.2 GHz, VID jumps to 1.34 while VCore stays fairly constant around 1.3

When CPU level up is set to AUTO (3.8 GHz), my idle 1.6 VID is around 0.97 and my VCore is at 1.248. At 3.8 GHz, VID jumps to 1.33 while VCore stays fairly constant.


Am I thick? Is this normal? I assumed at 1.6 the temps would be the same, regardless of the target load freq...but clearly the base voltage is higher even at the same clock speed.


BTW, I have also tried with OClock Tuner set to XMP. Not sure why that is suggested, but it didn't seem to change the situation.


I suppose that I need to read quite a bit more, but I am really just looking for a good low-voltage, low temp, minor 4.2 overclock. Any help/advice is very much appreciated.

Thread Starter 

Here's yet ANOTHER great simple little overclock tutorial for those needing a small mild OC w/o the effort smile.gif ...

 

As this is a basic guide for new and novice overclockers, so there are some basic factors that we need to take into account before we begin any kind of overclocking. The most important one is to understand that by overclocking your CPU you are voiding its warranty, and therefore you overclock entirely at your own risk. The fact that Intel and ASUS manufacture products with the capacity to overclock is irrelevant as overclocking is an option that the end user undertakes at their own risk. Realistically though, under low-to-moderate voltage increases and with proper cooling should be just fine! ...

Good Luck peps thumb.gif

I'll give it a read. Thanks. So many guides and so much (seemingly) conflicting advice...even in this thread. Asus seems like a good source though. thumb.gif
post #5586 of 7118
Okay, I read it...and it didn't address my questions above. I don't really need a guide on how to overclock. I have OCed successfully and also managed to config to get voltage to drop at idle. What I am looking for is insight with respect to what the end conditions should be.

Specifically: Should a CPU be using more power and voltage at 1.6 GHz (idle) when its target OC is 4.2 GHz than when it is at 1.6 GHz and its target OC is 3.8 GHz.?

Perhaps a naive question, but I am curious...and hoping that one of you OC experts can set me straight. smile.gif

Thanks.

No, it dont need more voltage @ 1.6Ghz. That voltage depends on your voltage and offset settings.

Appreciate the response. That said, following any guide that I have tried results in higher voltage (and power used) at 1.6 when in a config that supports a higher target CPU freq. I understand that the CPU doesn't need more voltage at 1.6. If it works fine at 1.6 at the lower voltage, then that voltage is adequate...but the various guides to config OC for a CPU on this board all seem to yield this result. I do get the VID to step down at 1.6 in both configs, but the stepped down value is higher when I have a higher OC target.

Have u tried working with offset cpu voltage? I have 0.928 V @ 1600MHz and 1.24V @ 4400MHz.
Same values when i set it on 4300MHz. My offset is like -0.07 V or something.

Can someone tell me if there is a version of speedfan that is compatible with our Gene-z Boards?

I use speedfan 4.45 and my CPU temp is 145C (in reality 25C) and i doesnt detect my cpu either.

Im lost after trying all kinds of programs to control my fans, now i finally got one that controls my fans like i want it and i cant use temp mode because of the faulty reading........ frown.gif


****SOLVED, finally got my speedfan working
