If I actually want to do something, I need to push it to 1.45v, which is pretty gay. To fold without blue screens, I need to push even higher. The blue screens are giving me a 0x101 error every time. I'm hoping to, optimally, keep this chip going and get this thing stable at 4.8GHz without resorting to anything over 1.45v, which I've been so far unable to do.
To that end, here's the settings on my BIOS:
-Ai Overclock Tuner: Manual
-BCLK/PEG Frequency: 100.0
-Turbo Ratio: By All Cores (Can Adjust in OS)
-By All Cores (Can Adjust in OS): 48
-Internal PLL Overvoltage: Enabled
-Memory Frequency: DDR3-1600MHz
-EPU Power Saving Mode: Disabled
-DRAM Timing Control: All auto, successfully setting to stock settings.
-CPU Power Management:
--CPU Ratio: 34 / Auto
--Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology: Disabled / Enable
--Turbo Mode: Enabled
--Primary Plane Current Limit: Auto
-Load-line Calibration: Ultra High (75%)
-VRM Frequency: Manual /Auto, If manual then change below
-VRM Fixed Frequency Mode: 300 /350
-Phase Control: Extreme Ok
-Duty Control: Extreme Ok
-CPU Current Capability: 100% OK
-CPU Voltage: Manual Mode
-CPU Manual Voltage: 1.46
-DRAM Voltage: 1.5 (stock setting)
-VCCSA Voltage: 0.925
-VCCIO Voltage: 1.1
-CPU PLL Voltage: 1.8
-PCH Voltage: 1.05
-CPU SPread Spectrum: Disabled / Enable
-CPU Ratio: 34 /Auto
-Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor: Disabled / Enable
-Active Processor Cores: All
-Limit CPUID Maximum: Disabled
-Execute Disable Bit: Disabled / Enable
-Intel Virtualization Technology: Disabled
-Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology: Disabled / Enable
-Turbo Mode: Enabled
-CPU C1E: Disabled / Enable
-CPU C3 Report: Disabled
-CPU C6 Report: Disabled
I hope one of you can make sense of this. Let me know if more info is needed. Looking for suggestions... I can exchange the CPU for a new one if need be, but it's about an hour drive each way to the place I bought the thing.
Ok, I just give you all the points you need to turn on or off, on my 2600k it takes 1.40-1.50V @ 4800 to get 12hrs prime stable, but at 4700 i can get by with just 1.370 to 1.40V, It seems a big difference just to get 100 more out of my chip but oh well.
I'm not one of the lucky one that has a great chip...
Anyways try those settings out and come back and let us know how it goes?
