I must be doing something wrong then. I feel like it chooses my voltage for me based on what i set my ratio at. I only cpu voltage I messed with was the offset, is this correct?

Took some pictures of my BIOS to maybe see if someone can pin point why my voltage is so high.

Everything looks fine, if you have to much voltage than you would like, start using a negative offset. smile.gif

Your VID is 1.3561v which means that is what voltage your chip needs at 3.3GHz so I wouldn't see why you would go less than that unless you can and just want to undervolt your chip.

What cooler do you have?

1.4v should NEVER produce 97C on a sandybridge chip unless your running the stock cooler or a failed install of a custom cooler.

edit: http://www.overclock.net/t/940091/bsod-codes-when-ocing-must-have-info great resource, list of common error codes and causes, if your getting x0124 try lowering pll ive read some 1155 chips like the lower voltage at higher multis

update http://www.overclock.net/image/id/1678354/width/600/height/374][IMG]http://www.overclock.net/image/id/1678354/width/600/height/374 12hrs of custom blend if you look my pll voltage is 1.709

Used a 1.709v PLL and I got way further on 5GHz. I made it to 3:45 with a core failing no crash, where as I was just crashing all the time at 2min max.

edit: Wowzers! I bumped up the vCore by 1 and the memory voltage up by 2 notches, and I got this!!! It lasted until about the 14min mark. frown.gif Nor sure what to do now... I got a 0x124 BSOD. I refuse to go any higher on the vcore, so I'll see if something else fixes it.

Keep dropping that vcore! When I was working on my 4.2 OC, I believe my offset was somewhere around -85, maybe lower! So for 4.0 you should be able to go way lower than where you are. What kind of cooling are you using?

Haha, makes sense. Don't know why I couldn't come up with that.

I have a question about the intel burn test. Does the time period between the tests matter? I feel like the test is kinda of contradicting itself. I ran 4.3 @ an offset on -0.060 and for 18 test before instability. So I changed the offset to -0.050 and it ran for only 3 test. I just tried 4.2 @ an offset of -0.040 and it ran for 6 test...

Thats your problem right there. IMHO and from others also, IBT is useless when it comes to stabilizing a SB chip. What it is good at is showing your absolute possible temp for your settings (something you'll never ever see during normal use or even gaming and even prime95).

You need you download prime95 64bit and run Blend mode. If you can pass that for 10,20,30...even 60min, then your very stable IMHO.

Well I was running prime95 previously, but I was getting errors and I noticed that my cpu usage wasn't at 100% all the time. Some times it drop to 50%, 13% ect...

Not sure why. To help the rest of OCN help you with your problems here, setup up the computer build you have right now and display it in your signature: http://www.overclock.net/rigbuilder

don't suppose LinX could be a substitue for Prime95 cause i use LinX as my primary stability program? redface.gif i do got a Extreme 3 Gen 3 on my list of stuff to get when money is available to me so this guide is pretty simple to follow looks like 4-5 simple steps redface.gif
