Just finished updating the entire guide.

  • Added in a bunch more settings.
  • Updated the readability in the Settings section.
  • Updated pictures to reflect the new BIOS update.
  • Revised entire Overclocking section to be more understandable.
  • Added in Ivy Bridge BSOD list.
  • Updated the Overclocking section to use Turbo Boost instead of Offset. This will decrease the voltage even further on idle and save even more power.

An upcoming section "Voltages" will be added to the guide to display the min/max/recommended setting for each voltage.

Hey Kenny - I noticed you added (i think) info about tweaking Turbo Boost for overclocking..what is this exactly? and how does it related to LLC and offsetting? I haven't touched Turbo Boost at all..I think it's always been set on "Auto" in all my testing.

Those are beautiful temps. May I ask what voltage/cooling solution are you using?

Nevermind, you are running WATER redface.gif

Thank you Kenny! I will check those settings out tonight.

I added a description in the guide.

Intel Turbo Boost Tech: Enabled
~This lets us use Additional Turbo Voltage.

Additional Turbo Voltage: +0.004v
~This setting will be changed later.
~This is just like the Offset but works ONLY when the CPU is not in idle state.
~The Offset works ALL the time, even at idle. This setting will allow you to keep a low Offset, and low idle voltage, while still getting the Vcore boost needed for full speed.

The Offset will raise your voltage by that amount even by idle. By using Turbo Boost instead, you raise it only during load like intended. Keeping idle voltage to a bare minimum.

^ Thanks! I missed that.

OK that got me thinking....

Right now I am running a stable OC of 4.4ghz, using Level 4 LLC with -0.005 Offset..load voltage is only 1.168..max load temp is 80C.

Now if I want to use Turbo Boost...my settings would be like this:

Ratio: 44
LLC: Level 4
Turbo Boost: -0.005
Offset: -0.020

something like that right??

How exactly would you test for a stable idle voltage?? I mean..if you are able to log into Windows...that can't be enough (or is it)...and you can't use Prime95 either...that would defeat the point. You know what I mean?

Yes 3570k 4.5MHz @ 1.24v stable, Prime95 running for 15H:58M and below the proof off course. now i have to stop it and install this Down Below smile.gif

Ok so..I've achieved 4.4ghz stability..however, max temp in Prime95 (12 hours) was 80C and in IBT (10 rounds, very high) it was 85C.....what do you guys think? Am I 100% fine with this OC ?? or should I lower my overclock settings?

I am wondering is there anything wrong with my set up .
Current Set up
Ratio : 42
C1es:enabled
C3/6:disabled
LLC : Level 2
Offset : -0.105
On load voltage is around 1.176 - 1.184, running stable with max temp of 71

But when I increase my LLC as followed
Ratio : 42
LLC: Level 3
Offset: -0.100
On load voltage is 1.24, running stable with max temp of 84

I am wondering why with a higher LLC, my voltage on load is so different when a higher LLC should improve temp. Will push higher when I figure out what is wrong with this.

Gonna mess around with turbo boost offset later.
Thank You for the help.
Sorry for my bad english
