I'm stuck - i5 2500k - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Sorry, my bios is different, it says 'Multi-Step Load Line Cal' and has selective levels.

So far, I have found that the dynamic vcore setting is helping keep my under load vdroop where I want it. More tests of this later today.

Also, using turbo multipliers is a very cool alternative. Working good so far.

Alright so after a stable quick custom blend, I moved on to 4.6GHz and I'm having some problems that I don't know where to begin to troubleshoot.

Basically what is happening is, my cpu is not stepping up to x46 when I start the test. It normally goes to x33 and jumps around while the voltages try to keep up and then a worker errors and finally it jumps up to x46. What is going on here??

have never seen behaviour like that before.

I would take note of all your settings, go into bios and set to safe defaults, reboot to make sure the changes took, then reapply your settings.

Realtemp and CPU-Z are reading the processor differently. I can hear the fan changing speeds with the multiplier. This is weird.

Found the problem - Turbo Power Limit

I am a noob at this, so pardon me, please.

I am running a blend with Vcore at 1.375 now and in the mid 60s right now. My buddy says over 70C is risky.
No, 70c is not even close to being risky. When you need to worry is when it starts to hit 90c+
