Auto voltage is equal to offset mode "+" 0.070 - which is quite high, so better don't use

Thanks for the reply!

But why am i a reading those Voltages?
I guess i will try some offset voltages then. By the way offset voltages offsets from what? I mean i dont know the base voltage that i modify whit whatever i set for example +0.005. And then if it is really so high why i cant read those voltages? And why it even not appears in temps??
I know it is a lot of questions but i dont get it.

or is it actually 1.140 + 0.070=1.210?

Thanx for the guide. It seems that the offset value is from auto voltage. I set offset +0.005 on bios now im on 1.088V and 4500Mhz. So not much of a difference..


edit: on offset -0.010V i get the same 1.080v during prime on the settings that in the 1 post 8192 memory.
sometimes id drops down to 1.072

read guide carefully VCore= VID +/- offset voltage

OHH I see!!
Thank you very much i found my VID in core temp.
So basically my cpu cant use more Volts than what my VID is set and thats is actually between 1.1709 and 1.1659. ans i just see 1.088 is on cpu z because llc5.


Edit:
Seems im wrong but never mind will dig myself in tutorials and find it out with time. Anyway Thank You again for helping! I really appreciate it!
Edit2:
"coretemp help faq's-VID is not the same as VCore. VCore is the actual voltage the processor is being fed by the motherboard.
VID is the recommended voltage the processor should be running at at the current power state, this is a predetermined value, programmed by the CPU manufacturer. When the processor settings, especially the VCore is kept at default settings, Core Temp will provide a good approximation of the real VCore, but if you change the setting using the BIOS or by other means, Core Temp's VID readings should be ignored."

very new to this but from what it looks like if all i want to try and get is like 3.9 or 4GHz all i have to do is change my multiplier to like 39 and pretty much leave everything else alone or in auto.

is that right or am i missing stuff?

my goal is a small OC for video editing and then just folding when im not editing. i edit a lot of video so any extra increase in performance to encode faster would be nice. and if not im still happy rocking an i7 for my work. makes a huge difference over my old core2duo

also changed c state and offset mode to the ones in the guide and the first option with offset so im not always running at the fastest

Hi new to the forums, i did everything on the guide to try and overclock my new cpu 3570k ,got it to 4.4 with a offset of +0.005v. and set the Turbo Boost to +0.004v these are my results after one hour in the prime test as suggested by the OP.Do they seem ok or is there any advice so it works better. I'm just not sure that I am doing this the correct way since it is my first time overclocking anything.

Yep. Don't ever use Auto for Offset or Turbo.

I'm just not sure that I am doing this the correct way since it is my first time overclocking anything.
Looks good to me.

Make sure you are using prime27.7 so that it enables the new AVX instruction for Sandy / Ivy.

In guide, under Green Overclocking...

The reason we change voltage past for normal overclocking is because Intel only tests up to x33. Many chips can do more than that, but with what voltage is unknown.)

But me not supporting it, does NOT mean you can't do it. If it works for the better, then do it. I don't support it because many people looking to do all sorts of OC's read the guide and I don't want a lot of people BSOD themselves on too low voltage.

A botched install (not enough pressure, paste didn't go on properly, etc..) OR junk paste can lead to high temps.

Make sure to use the pea size dot method for TIM and use a good TIM. Google search to see how good your TIM is. (TIM = Thermal Paste)

Running a fixed vcore, would I use the exact same settings in the guide for an offset vcore, but disable Speedstep, Turbo Boost and change package c state to auto?
Also, a question about the offset vcore. Is it the Additional Turbo voltage that will push the vcore to the desired level under load? What is the stock vcore that will be getting the additional 0.004v from the turbo voltage? I'm kind of confused by the whole 'offset vcore' thing... I'm more used to a fixed vcore, lol.
Yes for first question.
Second question: Both are explained in the guide. Offset gives you a voltage based on each multiplier, but affects the CPU the entire time, idle and load. Turbo works just like offset except it only kicks in during load. Turbo will compliment (add with) Offset.

this memory sticks have two xmp profiles one is the 2400mhz and the second is 2133mhz,no matter i choose any of them it wont boot,just beep(sound)
than after that i tryed to set all manually,the latency,the mhz and the voltages,but its doing the same thing
please help
ps: sorry for the bad english
Here is your manual: ftp://174.142.97.10/manual/Z77%20Extreme6.pdf (Found on ASRock Website)
It has a list of Dr. Debug codes that are displayed on the red LED on the motherboard.

For beep codes:
Quote:
Please refer to below form for the beep code and debug code of AMI UEFI BIOS.
Condition Beeps Code Debug Code
Normal 1 short beep after POST With goodnight LED enabled, debug code will disappear after the beep.
Bad CPU No beep No debug code
Bad memory No beep 45
Without memory 3 long beeps 53
Without CPU No beep(No Power) No debug code
Without VGA card 5 long beeps Beeps at”d6”, then show "0d"

My vcore seems alittle high though.
I5 3570k on ASRock extreme4 with Bios version 2.0
Antec Kuehler 620
8gb Crucial Ballistix sport 1600
with a +.005 offset running at 4.4ghz my vcore is 1.264
It is running stable with prime95 and Intel burn test at maximum
Temps
Prime95 max is 77
IBT max temp is 91 - again running maximum not standard
Any tweaks to either get the vcore and temp down? Was hoping to hit 4.5 with this vcore and temp or lower.
I would not use IBT to test for stability. I would use prime27.7.

IBT will run you temps much higher than prime95 and is not needed. No program will ever hope to generate the usage prime95 does, much less IBT.
IBT should be used for benchmarking only, or maybe quick 5min tests to see if a OC is even slightly stable.
