Voltage wall happens around 4.7 and up. Meaning, You'll need more Vcore to jump by a certain amount of Frequency than you need on lower clocks.
For example: I can get around up to 4.6 by adding just a tiny bit of Vcore. (+0.050 from stock) But requires +0.100 to get to 4.7 and worse, +0.200 to 4.8. And above that is a Hillclimb on the voltages.
Yes, you are right on Vcore-1 as the VRM temps.
I know, you mentioned 4300
I gotta admit though, though your 4300 wont give the VRMs proper workouts, keeping them cool by a fan will always be a plus
Ok, thanks for your help. My first through about you was like "What an *******, keep on bragging" hahaha. But that opinion has changed to the positive now
So, ima go for it.
About core sensor, the AMD core sensors are ****, completely ****crap****. They say all my cores are 8celsius, lol. So I only monitor my temps with Thermal Radar from now on. I've checked HWMonitor and SpeedFan, and all gives the same values on temperatures. And afterall, Thermal Radar is from ASUS, specifically available for my MoBo, so I think it know the sensors and temps. I did not mention any core temps. The picture provides all my sensors, and readouts. I can also check fan RPM and voltages.
When I said without fans, then I meant all extra fans. Like, all fans except the CPU cooler and the PSU fan. So in my case, I have 2 extra case fans. Or well.. 3, but that one is MOLEX connected, hahah.
I do know that my VRM's temps, or actually, ALL components temps wasnt in the line of danger. But why not you know.. Keep everything nice n cool ^^ And this is only a thought, but I guess that the CPU temp, might be the socket temp, I dno... Or maybe they're just measuring one core, like the core#1 or something... Haha, im just brainstorming.
Okok, to the real deal. Ima reset BIOS now, disable every single "power saving modes" and ****, and get on with it. 5GHz, here I come. Do I need to change NB or SB voltages? Do I need to change anything except multiplyer, VCORE, CPU VDDA etc?... I cant remember everything, been up all night trying to get my OC stable..
Well, ima go do the Bulldozer 5GHz guide/recommended settings!
Cya in abit
Oh, and that picture is taken with all my extra fans turned off. "VRM fan and front chassi fan off"
