Temps at 75C so far (After 10 mins), and core voltage does not seem to go higher than 1.316v despite the increase in turbo voltage.

I'm in the process of completing my 24hour Prime95 test right now at 4.8GHz 1.49V so I cannot take a peek on my turbo voltage in my BIOS settings.

I also experienced that issue wherein the core voltage does not want to go higher despite the increase in turbo voltage. That is when I set my LLC to High (I use an ASUS board but High is equivalent to 50% LLC). No matter how I increase the additional turbo voltage, the core voltage does not increase as per CPUZ. What I did was to increase my LLC to Ultra High and all was fine. That just proves that there is a limit to using additional turbo voltage, I guess.

I'm thinking of just sticking to 4.5 because so far every time it crashed on 4.6. At 0.037v turbo now.

My turbo voltage for my 4.8Ghz OC is at +0.090v lol

Awesome. Thanks!
So far I've passed the test at 0.037v. If 10 mins passes I will try at 4.7.

Question now, if I start reaching close to max core voltage, temps close to 85, should I start reducing turbo voltage or multiplier first?

I would lower Turbo voltage first...and if it's not stable then lower the multiplier and mess with the turbo again until that multiplier is stable thumb.gif

Well, resettled the CPU and used two different thermal pastes since I thought I had more of my MX-2 than I actually did lol. I noticed the H80i plate had a TON of extra thermal paste on it, which I removed. Also moved the included NZXT exhaust fan that was replaced by the H80i to the spot at the bottom of the Phantom 410. Temps dropped to 60C!

There you go! That's more like it....now increase that Turbo voltage lol biggrin.gif

Good night!
