Quick Question on 2600k overclock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm very new to overclocking but just put my new system together with a gigabyte z68Xp-ud3p and a 2600k.

This is my question, i have my vcore voltage in the bios set to 1.300v, my bios monitoring and hwinfo64 says my vcore is at 1.332v idle. I do have my multi-step line-load at lvl 5 so when at full load my vcore voltage will be at 1.320v(found that this is the sweet spot for my CPU at max load).

Iv tried setting my multi-step line-load to like 3 and 4 and that will keep my fixed bios and my actual bios vcore are about the same. I tried setting this at like 1.320v fixed and it would drop it to about 1.296v under load, which inst enough for my CPU.

Iv also tried going higher on the multi-step line-load to about 6. I set my fixed bios to about 1.300v and my it would say it was 1.344v but with the lvl 6 under load it would stay at 1.344v.

Like i said I'm very new at this and would just like to know if this is normal voltage readings and which scenario is better for overclocking.

Thank you.

also my temps for the 1.32v load never go above 60

Yup, what you are observing is exactly right for Gigabyte and their LLC implementation. Level 5 or level 6 usually holds load v up around where it's set, anything less and you get a drop, anything higher and your load vcore will go UP.

Which scenario would you say would be the best for overclocking in terms of the voltage and stress on the CPU, or is the current format i have alright.
