Alright I'll try that when I get home. As you can see from the picture though: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y149/Valerius001/SSPX0441.jpg ... Dynamic VCore has an "X" to the left of it which means I can't change it unless I do something to another setting. So I looked it up in the BIOS manual and it says this:

"Dynamic VCore - This option is configurable only when CPU VCore is set to Normal. The default is Auto.

Any idea what that might mean? I don't recall seeing a "Normal" option, just a bunch of voltage numbers like 1.2, 1.3 etc

Also I had one more question. In your original post, you have C3/C6 as Auto, does that mean Enabled or Disabled? I switched mine from Auto to Enabled just incase though.

Thanks $ilent smile.gif

Auto - enabled.

also kiel dont forget to add your system specs in the "your profile" section, makes it easier to help you out in future biggrin.gif

So I set VCore to Normal to see the options for Dynamic VCore, and there is no Disable option. Only Auto, Normal, and a bunch of +/- voltages.

Also, another thing I noticed. Right at this moment I have my VCore set to 1.260V, yet looking at the main Overclock menu and the PC Health menu, it lists my VCore at 1.400V. I'll attach some pictures:

Wow, figured it out haha. It was as simple as dropping from LLC Level 8 to Level 4!

Here is a quick comparison:

@4.0GHz with LLC lvl 8, temps were 61, 63, 66, 61 / Idle Voltage = 1.260 / Load Voltage = 1.380

@4.0GHz with LLC disabled, temps were 51, 51, 54, 49 / Idle Voltage = 1.260 / Load Voltage = 1.200

but yeah, I'll do a more thorough P95 test overnight, but atm I am at 4.5GHz LLC lvl 4 and VCore under load is 1.31 and idle is 1.36 and temps are low 60's, yay!

thanks for the help $ilent, appreciate it smile.gif

4.0ghz 7 hours blend test stable so far with 1.2 stock voltage! I did however use 120% instead of 140. On my way to see how 1.38v will net me...

Quick question guys. I just ordered my i5-2500k. Should be here monday. Can't wait! Gettin rid of my locked i3. Time to move up in the world.
It is my understanding that I'm supposed to clean off the chip before I apply the thermal paste...? Is 99% Isopropyl Alcohol ok?
This is what I'm using: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835100014
It's all I got...Looks like it'll work just fine...hopefully...

I don't remember if the chip is pre applied with the paste. If not, you should be able to just apply any other paste and install the heatsink on top. However, if it does come pre-applied with paste, 99% alcohol will clean and evaporate it away (make sure to use cotton swabs to grab the corners).
