2500k 4.1Ghz@1.2v..Need help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im currently at 4.1Ghz using 1.2V and its stable for almost an hour now..

I have my settings for manual voltage at 1.2v and i left LLC at normal. As far as i remember thats all i changed and i put it at 4.1ghz with my xmp settings for my ram. Whats the point of changing the LLC to extreme or whatever if im stable with it at normal.

Also im using prime 95 blend test with the option for lots of ram use.. Am i doing the wrong test? Or is it fine?

Need some clarification before i go father. Also is this normal for this chip or am i lucky with this oc?

Nice Overclock, prob could get a lower vcore. I could do 4.1ghz at 1.160v stable on prime95.. Could do 3.8ghz at 1.120v.. That's as low as i tried.. I'm sure you can go lower! Good luck

Edit** Also, prime95 blend is a great stress tester for sandybridge.. What a lot of people use from what iv noticed on this forum and others..
