LLC Level 1 or 2 for i5-2500K 4.5GHz OC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The guide I am following just says "enable" it, but my BIOS for GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 has:

Standard
Level 1
Level 2

Should I use level 1 or level 2 if I plan to OC my i5-2500K to 4.5GHz with 1.3V?

I use Level 1 personally, I find my temps go way up if I use Level 2 which actually feeds the CPU more voltage than it needs.

If you are not stable at 4.5ghz at 1.3v, there is no harm in bumping the vcore up a few notches until your CPU is stable, if you have a decent chip you wont need to increase vcore at all. You need to test your OC and run Prime95 just to make sure you are stable.

Okay, cool.

But something stranger, I do not see anywhere to change my CPU Vcore in the Advanced Voltage Setting menu!

My BIOS version is F1 for this MOBO, do I have to upgrade my BIOS version? If so, how would I go about this?

it might only have the ability to set an offset, in that case you need to add a voltage to your VID(stock voltage)

Hm, I took a pic to show what I mean:

I tried changing Dynamic Vcore (DVID) but it doesn't even have the option to go 1.3V.

Here's a shot of what it should look like I saw from the guide I'm using:
