if you have set the vcore manually at a much lower value then it could be LLC increasing it like that.

Reduce the vcore to 1.25v and work out which llc settings works best, for gigabyte mobo's it seems that level 6 would do the job well and increase the vcore as you stress test.

Ok i've spent the last few hours playing about. Anything for VCORE in BIOS set less than 1.28v then I can't seem to boot Windows (LLC is Level 6). At 1.28v I can boot Windows but it BSOD before 1 pass of IBT with 124 error which I believe is more voltage required. So I change this back to Level 7 of LLC, rebooted and I can pass IBT fine at 20 runs at Very High. EasyTune6 reports this OC at 1.32v at idle and this goes to 1.365v at load

I personally think the voltage is quite high for a basic 4.5 overclock. I've seen people reach 4.8-5.0 on similar voltages.

Is there anything else in BIOS I should be tweaking to try?

Thank you very much

Any danger putting VTT to 1.2 from 1.08?

i think those voltages look fine..vtt @ 1.2 is about the max (from what i've read) mine is set @ 1.13...cpu pll @ 1.84..other than that..there's not many other settings to play with on sandy bridge..lol..hey..do you have all the power limits set high?

What power limits should I be looking at?
