Hello. Thanks for replies. I will do mentioned things on monday. And I will open my PSU and check how much dust is on it and clean if it will be needed.
Also will check capacitors on PSU. After tests I will come back with results.
Have a nice day.
post #6432 of 9531
so I would love some input. I am really struggling with temps on my 3570k when trying to keep it at 4500mhz. I have reseated my cooler twice in last few days with both arctic silver 5 and antec formula 6. The formula 6 actually lowered the temps a noticeable amount but still way to high.

cores at hitting 90, 96, 93, 88 respectively with IBT on maximum. with Artic silver 5 was hitting 100 on 2nd core....

I have good airflow in my case with two fans on my 212 evo in a push pull. Cleaned all the dust out so I have ruled out any further hardware issues...

I have gotten it stable at multi of 45 with the following settings.
LLC 3
offset at +.010
turbo at +.035
brought CPU PLL down to 1.709
C states disabled along with all the other setting as found in the guide. ( awesome guide BTW)
ram set to 9 9 9 24 and 1600 1.5 volt according to specs
max CPU Vcore in HWmonitor is 1.248 volts


If I bring turbo down anymore I get errors in prime... PLL doesn't change the temps at all when I move it from 1.808 and 1.709

should I maybe try redoing everything with LLC at 4?? I may just have a hot cpu. Will probably keep it at 44 which takes much less voltage unless anyone has suggestions.

Seems you're beginning to hit the temp wall.
You can try to set LLC to 4 or 5, but note that this will decrease the Vcore under load, so the chip may become unstable unless you increase the Offset/ATV as well.

It may help though, just yesterday one fellow reported that he was able to decrease his Vcore under load by 0.065v by chaning LLC from Level 2 to 5. My overclock didn't work quite right with 100% (=Level 1) either, and I had much better experiences with 0% (=Level 5). Although nowhere as near as that guy reported.

Also, while it may seem quite high, 96°C isn't necessarily too high. You're still 9°C from TjMax, and you won't be running a Linpack based stress tool most of the time, will you? If you're happy with the temps under "normal" load (e.g. playing games, encoding, etc), you can just leave it as is.
If not, there's not much to do besides delidding the chip or running a lower overlock.
Delidding might actually drop the Vcore requirements a bit too, and seeing that you're only at 1.248v, you might have potential to reach another 200-400MHz if the temps are back in check.

Hey thanks! Great info. It sounds like it is worth dropping the LLC and seeing if that helps me stabilize with less Vcore. If not you are probably right and I will just have to live with it. During gaming I come nowhere near to even 80 let alone 90 degrees so I should be fine. Delidding isn't for me because I will probably want to sell this CPU in another year or 2.

This guide has been extremely helpful! I'm thinking I pretty much found my wall at a Vcore I was comfortable with. Currently at 5.1Ghz: and I'm almost an hour into the "Final Test", vcore looks good temps are good! As for cooling I'm using a H100i.

Hi,

I have tested my system with another PSU (Fractral Design Tesla 650W) - still restarts was present frown.gif Rarely but present. I don't know what is going on. Yesterday I have tested my PSU with digital multimeter and on molex connector there was 12.15V result on idle and 12.14V on stress so I think that my PSU is good enough for this system. I have opened my PSU and cleaned it but it wasn't much dusty. Still I don't know why my computer is randomly restarting. Do you have any ideas? On another PSU computer was I can say more stable but during 4h o testing it rebooted 4 or 5 times. One when booting Windows, one on X-Men Origins Wolverine game (today NFS RUN worked good), one in Unigine Sancuary demo etc. So restarts are very random and I can't find the formula what is causing this problems. I can RMA my MoBo but I think that service will test board with Prime/3DMark. This tests it seems stable so after 2-3 weekes they will give me back may board and say that it is everything all right with MoBo.

RMA board or not? This is the question? :-)

What are your settings for you OC? What CPU do you have? Mobo?

Core i5 2500K, ASRock P67 Pro3, RAM 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1333MHz CL9, OC settings - none. I can't get stable system even on default CPU and RAM settings frown.gif

Delidding might actually drop the Vcore requirements a bit too, and seeing that you're only at 1.248v, you might have potential to reach another 200-400MHz if the temps are back in check.

So the LLC did help lower temps a bit but I am having stability issues now. I have brought turbo vcore way up as well as tried increasing offset a bit and raised and lowered PLL.

I thought I was stable but I keep failing prime at the 256k FFT. weird thing is that I will pass it, then run it again and I will fail at same 256k FFT. I pass IBT every time. I keep increasing turbo vcore but all that is doing is creating more heat. I am beginning to suspect this may be a ram issue? I am running P95 at 90% ram. ram is set to stock setting and 1.5 volt.

Do you guys think my ram is the culprit even though I pass memtest without any issue? Should I try increasing my ram's voltage?

BTW, I am running stable at 4.4ghz and 1.2 volt no problem. Max temp hits 82 during IBT and prime. It is only when I try to push it to 4.5 that I begin having major heat and stability issues...... Might just settle at 4.4 unless I can figure this out soon.

You have stability issues because you lowered LLC. If you lower LLC then you will most likely have to increase turbo.

What is your current Offset & Turbo? whats your idle vcore?

The ram shouldn't be the problem if it has passed memtest and is set to the correct speed & voltage in bios.

You might be messing with too many variables at once. I'm at 4.6 and i have not had to touch PLL. Just leave that on auto. If you bios is setup correctly you should only have to mess with offset and turbo.
