I got my rig to run the torture test for 3 hours at 46 multi with -.010 offset and +.004 turbo voltage! smile.gif How low can you make the offset go without problems?

Side question: Do any of you guys know how to access a safe mode boot for our mobos? I'm having trouble figuring this out.

edit: I tried hitting F11 for boot menu but that only showed the possible boot devices, no safe mode option frown.gif

Temps have been fine, and Prime95 is still going with no crashes or workers stopping, but I checked event viewer and there have been 3 WHEA errors.

One at 1:32 am, one at 9:30 am, and one at 9:48am. What exactly does this mean and what exactly do I try to do to fix it?

That is soooo close to stable! It is a correctable checksum error, but causes the calc to repeat and backs up the stavk, IRQ etc. you need to get rid of them. If you are at a ceiling with vcore, I would raise the PLLa bit. That is one of the lowest i have seen here.

Well that was weird. I raised the offset one notch, and didn't get any WHEA errors but Prime crashed about 4 hours into it. Weird that it didn't crash in the over 8 hours before on lower voltage. Cranked it up one more step and so far so good, but it has only been going for an hour and a half so far. VCore stays just under 1.3 for the most part and no WHEA errors yet.

how the hell is this even possible... ?

and isnt it F8 for safe mode?

Safe Boot is a boot option for Windows, not the the motherboard.
The OS is loaded after the BIOS.

To Safe Boot after the BIOS loads you can hit F8.
This will pop up an advanced startup menu for Windows.
Of course you can hit this all you want during the BIOS loading because F8 is not mapped to the BIOS.

Or while in Windows you can press Windows Key + R.
Then type msconfig and press Enter.
Go to Boot tab and check Safe Boot.
The next boot will go directly into safe mode.

Do this again but uncheck Safe Boot to boot normally again.

what about CPU PLL?

this is handy for ivy overclocking:

The temp got to 84 degrees on that run. Is that bad?

No im more shocked @ this statement. I cant see 4.6 being stable in any way shape or form @ +.004 turbo/-.010 offset. No way. Ill believe you if you screen a 3 hour run though!

i would say more than handy ...a benchmark will test stability on its run....this will help you do "real World" tweaking


its not until JP recommended this option that i did perfectly made my computer a 24/7 4.8ghz powerhouse!

i passed hours of P95 and then a grenade on BF3 gave me a BSOD !!!


Event viewer is the key to a perfect overclock

I have followed his progress pretty closely, he has a fairly high VID, and my guess is he might even be able to go lower.

84 is high for Sandy, but is still 14C from TDP. I have a temperature difference of 15C from gaming to testing, which if you see the same would put you plenty cool. You can still try dropping offset more, most chips will idle .900-1.000, what is your idle vcore?
