Thank you.

I did try these fixed settings at 4.2 GHz and got a Windows restart after about 15 minutes of Prime95 using the settings at the beginning of this thread. So I assume I just can't do 4.2 GHz on "stock" voltage.

I will definitely test to try and get the lowest stable vcore at 4.0 GHz.

Try a base offset of +0.005 to +0.015 and a then keep increasing the negative offset on turbo until you start failing P95. Then back off a bit.

Not to mention the 1.42+v I'll llikely need to keep it stable 24/7. That's just scary lol. Think I'm gonna keep my 4.7GHz @ 1.376v. Maybe Ima try lower PLL further and see if that'll allow me to lower my voltages and still remain stable.

I think 4.7GHz will be the most I push for as well. Might just try running some benches at 4.8+, but nothing 24/7 stable and no P95 or Linx.

Edit: I'm at 1.627v PLL now and it's looking just as stable as 1.635v at 864k. Gonna switch back to a full run of Blend and see how she holds up.

4.0 GHz Fixed
Max 60C on Core 1 and 59 C on Core 2 (the rest are lower).
VID: 1.3411 v
Core Voltage: 1.208 V
LLC Level 2
So my question is: How do I translate that to Offset Mode? Do I just play with offsets (negative I assume) until I see my peak Core Voltage at 1.208 V? Do you think I will have issues with idle voltage?
Thanks!

Turbo offset is always the way to go. Only go for vcore offset when you get BSODs telling you to increase vcore (refer to BSOD list in guide). Try keeping the vcore offset a tick above 0 (+.004 I think?) and put the rest in turbo offset and see how it goes. You shouldn't have difficulty with 4.0. IDK your rig though but if ur using 2500K/2700K or 3570K/3770K you might not even need a voltage bump. I personally didn't need to tweak voltage for a 5 min PRIME test till 4.6GHz. I know it's different for every proc but you shouldn't have any issues. smile.gif

I was hoping (well more like praying) for a 5GHz 3570K 24/7 stable which is almost unheard of lol. I'm happy I got 4.7 stable though. Never tried benching anything, might try it just for kicks but mostly I just enjoy overclocking and gaming.

So you running 4.8GHz? How much vcore you at?

Just switch the multi to 45, Set your offset at a +0.005, and for now leave your turbo voltage on auto. Then start P95, write down what vcore is displayed in CPU-z during idle/full load and then start up P95. I assume the rest of your bios is set up correctly but you can always take screen shots and post them here.

Fill out your system specs in your sig so members know what hardware you are running.

This is where I'm confused...

How do I get my idle vcore to drop back down if I'm setting the multiplier up to 40 and NOT running a negative offset voltage? Won't just setting the ratio to 40 bump the vcore automatically?

On my phone so I can't take full advantage of the system builder.

I changed the rest of the settings according to the first post in this thread and adjusted the C states for offset mode.

Your vcore will change by having speedstep and C1e enabled. This is what allows the cpu multi & vcore to drop at idle and increase at full load
Speedstep Enabled
C1e Enabled
C3 Disabled
C6 Disabled
C-State Support -Auto

You can take bios screenshots by formating a flashdrive in FAT32 then restart, go into bios, hit f12.

So you running 4.8GHz? How much vcore you at?

Not yet. Working on 4.6GHz stable right now. I'm out of town until tomorrow but hopefully blend will still be running when i get home. I'll try for 4.7 as well, but I'll be happy here for 24/7.

I'll shoot for 4.8, 4.9, & 5.0 bench runs on a cold winter night with the window open. Thinking about deliding too but not sure if it's worth it to me.

Isn't llc bad? Again I'm new to this but from what I'm reading online LLC is a hack? It's not supported by intel and vdroop is what you want.

Also with my 4.2 OC I've played for hours and didn't crash. My temps stay in the 40s. It only spikes up to lower 50s on two cores when the game is loading. While actually playing a map it stays in the 40s. Could be my haf 932 with good air flow that's helping out. Would this really degrade my chip?
