Temps in the summer have run low 60s and in the winter low 50s with my antec 620. The voltage should be fine for long term use right?

Yeah those voltages are fine. My only question is why did you go with fixed voltage instead of turbo core? That would mean your voltages even during idle would be quite high. Also those temps are great, you can push for 4.7GHz at around 1.36v stable probably.

When my PLL is set on auto, there's a number beside it. If that's the default value, it's about 1.82-1.83 if I remembered correctly. I decreased my PLL by 2 notch and so far it managed to run Prime for 40 minutes without crash.
Thanks for the tip!

Sure man any time, PLL will help keep programs from crashing and you can decrease it till about 1.68v I think. Once you see a program crash decrease it another notch, keep your vcore as it is for now. Good luck mate. thumb.gif

Volts and temps are fine IMO. Under 85 C and 1.35 v is fine for long term, CMIIW. Try to use offset mode so your Vcore decreases during idle.

Thanks! I'll keep decreasing it crashes. Do I need to increase PLL at some point?

Nope, just don't go below 1.68(?)v or else you might not be able to boot. smile.gif

Up till now PLL is still a mystery to me. If reducing it aids in lifespan and stability, I wonder if it's a good idea to reduce PLL on stock speed and voltage. Anyway, Asrock released BIOS v2.40 in case you guys don't realize.

Hmm I think updating will delete the current BIOS settings. So we'll have to place and save settings again. Do you know what improvements did the new BIOS yield?

BTW a buddy of mine says overclocking using AXTU might case issues compared to using pure BIOS only. Can anyone confirm if this is true and what issues AXTU causes? smile.gif

ASRock only states v2.40 will "Improve USB keyboard and mouse compatibility". Even they don't recommend us to update our BIOS if everything's fine. I'm still using the old v2.00 and my reason to update it from v1.00 to v2.00 is only because I'm experiencing troubles with my graphics card. v2.30 modifies your CPU LLC behavior and I'm not sure whether it's helpful or harmful for OCed systems. What BIOS version are you running?

Edit: Back to my OC, now I'm pretty sure PLL might be the fix for crashing program. No programs crash after I reduced my PLL by 2 notch. Even I reduced my turbo boost voltage by 2 notch and not a single crash shows up till now.

Maybe you didn't give it enough voltage at idle. Did you try increasing Vcore?

Edit: I was trying 1.29 v and I just had my Firefox crashed while doing Prime. Should decrease PLL or increase turbo boost?

Hello, new to overclocking here.

I've followed the guide and ended up at 4.8GHz. HWmonitor reports core temps around 70 however I'm concerned about the voltage - hwmonitor reports up to 1.46v

Current settings:

LLC: level 2
Internal PLL overvoltage: Enabled
Turbo boost: 0.1600v
PLL voltage: auto

I've tried lowering PLL & turbo but lost stability and get a BSOD quickly. Should I leave it at those voltages?

Using a H100 cooling solution.

Edit:
2 hours of prime95 in I get a 0x101 crash. Increase turbo boost even further or reduce multiplier?

my little list says,
0x101 = increase vcore

i wouldnt feel comfy with 1.46V vcore,
how does 4.7ghz look voltage wise?
my voltage jump from 4.7 to 4.8ghz was big..

"hwmonitor reports up to 1.46v",
what do other programs report?
