Is My OC Settings Good?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, these are the setting iv been running with for a couple weeks now. they are stable and hvnt had any issues with them. Im thinking of going to 4.2-4.5GHz but with HT off. Im on the wall about the HT thing, Some say keep it others say not. I mostly use this computer for gaming and browsing the web. at the moment my Idle temps are 40c and load gets it in the low 80c.
If there's anything i could change about the setting let me know. and is it worth going to 4.5GHz? Here's my Settings-
HT =ON
AI Tuner =Manual
CPU Ratio =21
Speed Step =Disabled
Turbo Power Lim =Disabled
CPU TM Fun =Enabled
BCLK =195
PCIE =100
Dram Freq =1563
UCLK Freq =Auto
Dram Timings =7 8 7 24
CPU Volt =1.35
CPU PLL =1.81
QPI Core Volt =1.27
IOH Volt =1.11
IOH PCIE Volt =1.51
ICH Volt =1.11
DRAM Bus Volt =1.65
Load Line Cal =Auto
CPU Diff AMP =Auto
CPU Clock Skew =Auto
CPU Spread Spec =Auto
IOH Clock Skew =Auto
PCIE Spread Spec =Auto

I wouldn't go above 4.2Ghz on air, tbh I wouldn't go higher than 4ghz on air...

Have you stress tested this? what were your temps?

using OCCT my max temps were at 85c but they averaged about 80c.

I don't think you can push 4.2Ghz with HT on, taking HT off will take off the heat by quite a bit so you will have more room to play with. For gaming and browsing, just take HT off, saves heat, and gives you more headroom if you want to OC, however 4.0Ghz is more than enough for gaming and browsing

so HT is better used for encoding then, which i dont do anyway lol. ok makes sense. so the settings seem good as well then? i found out a lil while ago that my QPI volts were to high so i brought it down a few notches and its still stable.

Tbh, that should be fine, I'd personally give IBT and prime95 a go as well, I think they will really push it harder.

yeah those settings seem fine, you could put it on full loadline calibration, and disable CPU spread spec, if you want to achieve higher clocks, and Yeah i'd turn off HT since you don't encode etc. but apart from that, everything is fine

Ok, il do that. Also the load line calibration has 3 settings 0%, 50%, 100%. Im guessing the 100%

Well I do want to bring my OC to 4.5GHz. If I want to reach that is the cpu volt and bclk the only thing il need to change?
And idk if this is the right way to OC but I set the bclk to what it need s to make it to 4.5GHz then I stress with occt until crash or bsod then I up the cpu volts a couple notches then repeat process untill the system will pass 6 hours of occt. Does that sound about right?

Don't forget memory testing, such as memtest, it can throw errors. And higher bclk needs more uncore voltage, maybe even pll or other voltages that far past 4ghz
