In my case, why is it that when I enable C3 and C6 I immediately get a BSOD upon entering Windows? I'm using Offset and am stable when these two states are disabled. What is the relation of Offset to these two states?

As I promised here are my settings for my offset usage (you can find the details in my sig)

Internal PLL overvoltage : Disabled
EPU power saving mode : Disabled
L-L Calibration : Regular
VRM Freq : Manual
VRM Freq mode : 350
Phase control : Optimized
Duty Control : T.Probe
CPU Current capability : 100%
CPU Offset : + 0,025 (lower will give BSOD)
DRAM voltage : 1.50000
VCCIO Volt : Auto
CPU PLL volt : 1.71250
Other voltages on auto
CPU spread spectrum : auto
CPU ratio : auto
Enhanced intel speedstep : enabled
turbo mode : enabled
turbo mode parameters all on auto
intel adaptive thermal monitor : enabled
active processor cores : all
limit CPUID max : disabled
execute disable bit : enabled
CPU C1E : Enabled
C3 : DISABLED
C6 : DISABLED
Intel virtualization technology : disabled
High precision timer : enabled

Reason for turning of C3 and C6 is it gave me about 1,5% more FPS in games and benches (really I did extensive testing both times with only these 2 settings differently)

Good luck ! thumb.gif

Oh ok. Other than that you can enable them without any BSODs?

It wasn't just you who recommended that. Almost all hits I get from a Google search recommend to disable C states when using Offset.

What Unclewebb is saying about using Fixed voltage instead of Offset voltage is very interesting and would like to understand more about it. Unclewebb, can you please enlighten us further on this?

gonna go back and read and then drop my two cents..
I have a negative offset of -0.040, LLC medium and phase control set to optimized.
4.5GHz max voltage is 1.312v and lowest voltage is 0.960.
all C-States are auto or enabled.

 

Do you also have Duty Control set to T. Probe?

My opinion is that C3 and C6 get the blame for instability issues when the real problem is the offset voltages that are being used.

When using C3 and C6, use a fixed voltage. CPU-Z should report the same speed and voltage whether your CPU is idle or fully loaded. Users still have these beliefs that this will waste power, create extra heat when idle or cause unnecessary wear on their CPU. None of that is true when using C6.

When set up like this, your CPU will be getting its fixed voltage when it is in the C0 state working on a task and as soon as it finishes a task, it will immediately drop down to C6 where the voltage drops down to nearly zero. Your cores will rapidly transition back and forth between C0 and C6 and they will spend as little time as possible in all of the other intermediate C States. That is exactly what you want. When a task needs to be completed, you want the CPU core to quickly get into C0, work at full speed, get the task done and then get back into C6 as soon as possible. The faster your CPU works in C0, the bigger percentage of time it will be able to spend in C6, running cool and saving power. When using C6, you should also be using the Windows High Performance profile. Running a CPU slowly to save power is a myth.

Thank you.  I'll begin reading this in a little while.

Because your offset isn't high enough.

The VRM Frequency can be set to Auto.  Using Manual with a setting of 350 is only really needed for higher multipliers.  If you're still at 4.5 GHz, then this setting isn't making a difference.

 

You can disable CPU Spread Spectrum, especially if you have ever noticed your BCLK sitting at 99.8 MHz.

 

Based on what Unclewebb said, we may all be better off using a Manual voltage with C3 and C6 enabled.

Oh ok. What about for 47x, is the VRM frequency recommended to be set to Auto as well?

Yes, I'm actually modifying my Offset value now in order for me to use C3/C6 without BSODing.

Regarding LLC, why is that when I am on Medium LLC the max voltage when running IBT is lower than the max voltage when running Prime95? I'm trying to decrease my LLC and I seemingly can't understand why this is happening. I'll try to relay my stability settings:

I'm stable at 47x, UH LLC, and 1.44V. With UH LLC, I see 1.44V in both IBT and P95 tests.

When decreasing it to Medium LLC, I modify Offset and Additional Turbo Voltage in such a way that I see 1.44V again in P95, no problems there. But the problem is that when I run IBT, I see only around 1.32V which makes it unstable in IBT. My personal target is to pass both programs' stability tests.

From what I've seen, yes.  I'm using Auto and it's fine.  The "template" in the original post does not match my current settings.

Why not just set it to Manual like Unclewebb recommended?  I would, but I need to clean out the interior of my computer before I do anything that generates heat (such as testing stability).

That's vDroop.  The more intense the load, the further down the voltage droops.  However, this does not mean that IBT is better than Prime95; it's just different.

 

This is easier to see with a Manual voltage.

That's because there's much less vDroop (probably none).

I think that this could be an argument for using a higher LLC setting.  However, the higher the LLC setting, the hotter your VRM gets.  The hotter your VRM gets, the greater the chances are of that causing instability.

 

I overclocked in the 2nd week of July of 2011 and I never tested my stability with Linpack (IBT, LinX, or others), yet my system has been working flawlessly this entire time.

Oh ok. I'll try Auto for VRM frequrncy then. But how does the Auto mechanism of this work though? It might be setting it higher than 350 for all we know?

I might try Manual, yes, but wouldn't Offset plus C3/C6 enabled be better anyway? You get the best of both worlds with that, don't you? Unless there is really a good thing with using Offset? That's why I would appreciate if Unclewebb could expand on this topic more.

Just as I expected that IBT puts more load on the CPU which means more VDroop for the vcore when set to Medium LLC. That means overall your vcore voltages would be higher, that is if you want to be stable at IBT also. I get it that some people only want to be P95 stable.

Well, if lower LLCs do produce better stability then I'm expexting that for the same multiplier it can be stable at a lower vcore. Does that make sense?

The part about the VRM Frequency setting is for Daffie82.

 

Anyway, I don't know the answer and I'm honestly not worried about it.  I really don't see any reason to worry about it.  If you can show me some reasons for concern, then I'll consider worrying about it.  :)

He did, plus he posted the link to the PDF which probably explains it even better than he did.  It's only 5 pages long and I'm planning on reading it when I have time.

 

After reading what he posted, I have the impression that a fixed voltage is far better.  Read it again to see why.

The lower the LLC setting, the more normal the vDroop behavior is.  Higher LLC levels restricts vDroop more and more.

Anyway, I don't know the answer and I'm honestly not worried about it.  I really don't see any reason to worry about it.  If you can show me some reasons for concern, then I'll consider worrying about it.  smile.gif



He did, plus he posted the link to the PDF which probably explains it even better than he did.  It's only 5 pages long and I'm planning on reading it when I have time.

After reading what he posted, I have the impression that a fixed voltage is far better.  Read it again to see why.



The lower the LLC setting, the more normal the vDroop behavior is.  Higher LLC levels restricts vDroop more and more.



I don't know if anything should really be expected when it comes to overclocking.

Ok. But personally, are you using Auto at 47x?

The pdf didn't work earlier. I'll try to access it again.

What do you mean by the vdroop behavior is more "normal"?
