I am having a hard time understanding what they should be at (the load-line CPU stuff).

My specs:

Extreme6 z77
H80i CPU cooler
Gskill 2x8gb (16GB) @1866Mhz
Ivy bridge 3570k
HX 850w PSU
GTX 670 FTW
Intel 520 SSD

Any insight would help a lot.

All i would care to have is a stable OC at 4.3-4.5Ghz

Its going to be slightly different for each board, because the BIOS is not the exact same. Filling out rigbuilder and putting your built rig in your signature will help us to help you, but in the meantime......

Which board do you have?

I believe your board has a near identical BIOS as mine:
This a real vanilla overclock for 4.3, I would say you have a 90% chance of this being stable right off the bat, but it depends on the individual chip, so no promises. If its not stable you can add turbo voltage in .004 increments. You will need to test using Prime95 from the first post. Its raining and I am broke to take the wife out tonight, so I will be around for a bit if you need further assistance.

Edit to add: keep an eye on temperatures 98C will throttle and should be considered a fail. Report back what your max temp and voltage is!

Awesome, hey thanks for your assistance. My first MOBO was a DOA, my new one comes in tuesday. Once it comes, i will follow the instrucations and post again if i need help.

Thanks +rep

So I returned the extreme4 and jumped ship over to the asus. And I'm glad to say my new ram is running smooth and without errors. biggrin.gif I also decided to shell out for a H100i. So far I love my set up. Thanks for all the help.

On to the qestion:
I'm currently getting my settings stable. I'm running at 4.7ghz @1.336v with no problem. But if I hop up to 4.8, suddenly I get BSODs like crazy, and they all relate to unstable RAM timings/voltage. How can I fix this, and is it safe to up my RAm voltage past 1.5?

What type of ram do you have? And generally, no, you do not want to up your RAM voltage past whatever the manufacturer says. If it is @ 1.65v, leave it at that. Same goes for 1.5v RAM

I've got 8gb Corsair Vengance 1866.

Yeah, i would keep it within the parameters. It looks like its 1.5v for that RAM. Plus, it is supposed to run @ 1866Mhz at 1.5v. I was looking at G.skill forums for my RAM (since that is what i have), and i noticed that generally peeps that boost the voltage on the ram have all the problems. Then again, Corsairs RAM might be different. Keeping it at 1.5v though is my .02

Well, upping it a few notches shouldn't hurt too much, you can try 1.525v and see how it works.
People have been overclocking and overvolting RAM for ages, but it's also true that RAM is the one component that is already most likely to go faulty (although it's also the one where generally it hurts the least).

If it's already running at 1.65v though (which it isn't for you) I'd not touch it. Ivy Bridge is officially only specified for 1.5+-5%, so up to 1.575v.
1.65v seems to run fine (haven't heard otherwise), but I'd feel uncomfortable overvolting that any further.


@Sh3perd
What's your Vcore under load?

Best to overclock one thing at a time...If you are trying to stabilize your CPU, set your RAM to stock. Work the CPU stable, then work your RAM.
