What multiplier are you shooting for? Can you fill out your system specs in your sig.

So guys... here's my settings right now and even with this at 4.7, I'm not stable. 4.8 is impossible. Auto crashes every time, seconds into Prime95. I also found that my BSOD is of 124.

Another thing that is interesting, is that at 4.7 with 1.36v, or +112v to turbo, will not BSOD when running P95. Instead the app crashes, so I'm thinking maybe it likes less voltage than what I am giving it below?

Right. So if you had a stable fixed OC at say, 1.321V try to match that using offset/turbo. 1.321 is a hypothetical example.

Ther pe are three methods with K-series chips:
Fixed (no explanation needed)
Offset (add to offset, turbo on auto)
Turbo (min idle-stable offset, turbo for load stability)

No you do not want to match your stock vcore, unless you are running stock clocks (frequency). Start with 5mV (0.005V) in offset put multi at 45 and add 4mV to turbo - test. If good, up the multiplier- test, if fail, keep adding turbo volts until the overclock is stable. Run p95 10-20 min for each test cycle, then when its good for 20 min, run p95 for an hour or longer... Many say to at least 12. Go slow, watch tthe temperature!

Per the surrounding posts... You should never set LLC at 1 or what ever the value is for maximum compensation for vdroop. Vdroop is a good thing and was engineered into our consumer retail chips for. A specific reason. I would not completely override vdroop.

If 4.5 is his target I would suggest level 4, it gave me accurate VCore readings.
My experience for 4.5 on the Z77 ext4 is
level 5 margin of error -.019
level 4 margin of error +.000
level 3 margin of error +.016

Yeah, i read sin0822 review of the gigabyte and asrock boards. Scary !

What do you mean by "margin of error". Actual vs cpuz?

What did you see at LLC 2?

Guys, any opinions on my settings I posted above?

I am actually now at 12 min running prime and no crashes or BSODs. I went up to +121 on the turbo voltage and am at around 1.35v. It seems like it really likes very specific voltages.

Am also using 1.808v for PLL and it seems like it's doing good so far. I might hit it up one notch to be sure after a few more minutes and try to do a 2hr run at that point. I may just settle for 4.7 I think. frown.gif

1.709 is good for CPU PLL. Let it run and pst back how it does smile.gif
