First time 2500k OC feedback

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, just OC'ed a cpu for the first time. Could I get some feedback on how my setup looks? Was having some problems with vdroop until I set the Load Line Calibration to 6. I've heard using LLC can result in dangerous voltage fluctuations - would it be better to disable LLC and just use a higher Vcore to compensate for the Vdroop? Thanks!

You should update your Realtemp to 3.67 or later.
Also please go to your UserCP and update your system specs.
So we'll know what kind of ram/cooler you are using etc.
The temp seems fine for 1.356v.
You may make the vcore a bit lower, though.
Most of 4.5, 4.6 come around 1.285~1.360.
Check out the sandy stable club on my sig to compare with other systems.

And also if you are trying to make the clock exactly at 4500MHz, you can disable the spread spectrum in UEFI.
You may keep the 100.3 bclk if you really want to.
But it will most likely make the OC harder. Means it might give you some problems.
I'd make the bclk at 100 and see how high you can OC the multi first.

Welcome to OCN, btw.
