Definitely. You can achieve just as good results sometimes with tighter timings vs frequency. A faster NB can achieve just as good results as a RAM OC, also. I combine them to get the highest read/write speeds possible with both OC'd.

I don't think that board has any LLC options (from what I've been reading on this forum). The main complaint is having to set a relatively high core voltage (VCORE) to offset the voltage droop. If you can't get it stable without heating up the core close to the limit (62C), then I suggest just go back to your last OC and work on your CPU/NB settings.

If it's not present, I'd plan on the overvolting with vdroop accounted for. How large is your max vdroop?

Sorry, I meant difference between vdroop voltage and voltage set in the BIOS.

the difference is 0.0865 (according to my casio calculator).

Damn, that's bigger than mine. Try 1.5. Then, try 1.525 if necessary. Then 1.55, but I wouldn't go higher on air.

Ok i'll kick it off on 1.5.
If my next post is from tapatalk, something went horribly wrong.

Yeah, mine will be from Board Express cause I'm horribly drunk. But, I'll still be following you. This way I can do it laying down. Those steps should take you a while, though with testing included. You should be fine. When I said I keep mine at 1.5v earlier, I meant at idle vdroop. It's 1.55v in the BIOS. Once you find a stable voltage, try it with CnC enabled. The best way to test that is through normal usage (to allow the freq/voltage to drop).
