i7 2600K - Reasonable settings and temp? - Page 5

post #41 of 108
Well, fairly yes -- I'd say so, damn I wish I was home.

Okay - when I read the OC'guide just to for some pointers - I keep reading about Load Line Calibration.

Supposedly there is an LL1 LL2 setting under the BIOS with version F4 and guess what -it's not there.

I have an enable/disable/auto ---- if I use EasyTune which SUCKS - then I see a setting for LL1 all the way to LL9

---- Just for chat sake --- trying to bring up as many people together with the same settings...

I see, yeah, LLC is a bit confusing my head, I understand the concept, but I'm just not sure how I should use it. I've taken the best of both worlds at level 3, (there are options 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the BIOS).

Disabled HT and so far I've reduced vcore by -0.030v without stability issues yet.

I see. Well I've just currently got the system stable again with LLC at level 5 this time (highest option), here's a screenshot of the system under load.

I am using a fixed voltage. I am not sure what else you could change to get it lower either. It is possible that your chip needs that much for 4.6 but to me it seems slightly high. Sandy stable club has some posts where it is above 1.37 but those are for 4.8 clocks. I would think 4.6 should be able to stay under 1.35 for sure. Don't take me up on that though, because it could easily be required by your chip. Really depends. All chips are different.
The only time it is good to disable things like CPU Spread Spectrum, Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology and C1E is when adjusting the BCLK. Otherwise, it's strongly recommended to leave them enabled.

Things are much different with Sandy Bridge (and better, in this regard).

Either that or it could be because I'm using a different LLC level, power saving options and an offset voltage (which I've heard are harder to achieve when overclocking the CPU).
Unfortunately, weight is no longer a way to judge a PSU. I recommend asking for help in selecting a PSU in Overclock.net's Power Supplies forum.

If you are not adjusting the BCLK at all, the following must be left enabled: Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology, C1E, and CPU Spread Spectrum. C3 and C6 should either be left on Auto or Disabled because you can get BSODs while idling if you start using an Offset Voltage (which is strongly recommended as well).

Alright - here is what I have going now, I readjusted the BIOS settings as you stated were recommended and so far so great -

The Core Voltage still shows up wrong ---



I have the BCLK up at 0.02 so that the Bus Speed evens out at 100.0mhz

My question is that it reverted to 16x after I did this? then jumps back up to 45x where I was.

I dont understand? Is this the C3/C6 states?

Where do you adjust this? my 99.8 MHz is pissing me off.

Your BIOS might be different to me, well, probably is. Anyway, I found mine in the overclocking section, where I could configure all the CPU, RAM speeds and voltages. It was called Bus Clock as far as I remember, no special naming convention. Hopefully it's similar in your BIOS, unless GA have restricted access or there's something setup in your BIOS which hides the option.

Also, for all people in this thread, geesh LinX with AVX support kicks a pounding on the CPU for stress testing, I have to increase what I thought was a stable vcore to quite a bit higher compared to no AVX support. Tests freeze sometimes within 30 seconds, maybe less than that, using LinX with AVX support, consumes about 30W more too (120W~ on mine) and increases temps a few degrees compared to standard tools without AVX support.
