Can you double check my OC for Core i7 930?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Here are my settings.

I added the CPU/GPU graph from BF3 to show the CPU spikes I see when the game runs on Ultra. I basically just want to know if my CPU is overclocked wrong somehow that causes the CPU spikes. Any ideas? Also, the CPU runs hot under load (about 85 in Prime) so I may have to scale back, but this just makes me worry for my gaming performance.

Core i7 930, GTX 580, 6gb gskill ram, ssds in raid. Trying to fine tune my overclock. This OC is running a little hot, so I was hoping to lower my temps by lowering the voltage, but I seemingly can't. Any suggestions? I have an H50 cooler for the CPU and the ambient temp is pretty cool.

That's the thing. I've been trying to lower the vcore but it won't let me for some reason. It's showing that the lowest my mobo can do is 1.25 (the pic is the same as in bios, it wont go lower). Anything lower than 1.25 is not even an option I can choose and I can't enter anything lower than 1.25 manually either. What could be the problem?

beats me lol im clueless on these new age uefi bios. if thats the case well then why not increase your overclock until u become unstable? that way if its stuck at 1.25v at least u squeezed out all the juice it had. or maybe even go higher if u still have decent temps =D 4.6 Ghz :O

I cant help you with the bios but it looks good 1.28 is great for 4GHz.

It would be great if you did the OC in the BIOS. Usually you can get better OCs through there.

Thanks for the help everyone.

@ShootingStar The OC is actually done in the BIOS. I was just lazy to copy everything down so I used that program to show the OC. It comes with the benefit of showing the ranges of each setting, which is good since I was trying to show that I'm unable to lower the vcore anymore.

Any other suggestions on why I can't lower the vcore anymore? Or at least another way to lower my temps that you can see in the pic?

you can re-seat your h50, use different thermal compound (making sure u apply a very thin layer), move your radiator (intake instead of exhaust, but it will heat up your other components), get better fans w more static pressure for the h50, you could turn off ht if u dont use threaded software, or in the most extreme case you could lap your h50 heatsink because it does have quite alot of imperfection from the machining process. this also doesnt void corsair warranty if u google on their forums. with luck u can get a 5c max load temp drop. but id say ur good where ur at and in fact id up the oc till its barely stable on 1.25v =D GOOD LUCK!
