is there a 100% right way to do it?
sure i'll look into the arctic mx4. thanks for the recommendation. smile.gif

Is P95 still running?

I must be thick cause this makes no sense to me.

I can achieve a stable 4.5OC with fixed voltage at 1.235v.

Using offset, upon boot, it spikes at 1.288v. +.025 +.008 and then drops to .0992V idle and with prime it pops back into the 1.232/1.240 area. after a while, say 10 mins of prime I see it drop to 1.224 <- this leads to instability. I am using LLC level 3. (3770K.)

also why such a spike upon boot? I tried to google but didnt see the answer.

Light load always shows the highest vcore because it has the least vdroop. Try upping your LLC to level 2.

thank you for the explanation.

I bumped my offset to +.030 and it seems to be stable now. Still LLC 3. Its been going for an hour using the prime test example in the OP.

I'll leave it run but Im pretty certain off my fixed voltage testing (where prime ran for a good number of hours) that I should be fine.

All right I am back. I had one freeze since I upped the turbo to 0.012 but I suspect it was something related to skype, that ****ty program did the same when I wasn't even overclocking. I say I can't believe its the cpu because I did tonight 8 and a half hour of test without a warning or errors. It passed everything.

I have to say one of the cores got to 87°, the other 3 to 81 and 83. Why is one of the cores so much hotter? I have a CoolerMaster 412S with Noctua NF-F12 PWM on top of it pointing directly out of the case at 1100rpm and Arctic Ceramique 2 cause thats what I had at the time.

Whats the best way to apply the past on a 3570k? will I gain some degrees if I switch to mx4?

Thank you smile.gif

Check out SkinnyLabs for Thermal Interface Material (TIM) comparison:

http://skinneelabs.com/2011-thermal-paste-review-comparison/

Some core designs benefited from specific points of application of TIM, but for the most part it depends on the cooler type (eg HDT as noted above) and quality of the mount - this is where you can get some major differences in performance too.

Once you get the thing stable, all those BSODs may have f'd up programs and or the OS in not obvious ways.

open a cmd prompt and type in "sfc /scannow" hit return and let it clean what it can.

i did not get any bsod during my tests. I didn't push my oc too much. I had 1 bsod while booting and 1 freeze yesterday and probably not even related to the oc. Mostly i had games crashing.
thanks for the link and the advice on the scan thing.

Great try and let it run for 8 hours + to see its full stable. Also browse the internet and see if chrome crashes again. Usually when your browser crashes its because you idle vcore is too low so that why i had you bump up the offset to a +0.015.

Speedstep enabled right?
