case: Rosewill Simple One

It looks pretty stable at 4.6Ghz, but my voltage might be a bit high @ 1.368~1.376

Are my temps in line? They've never peaked above 60C during Prime95 torture test.


How long did you run Prime 95 for? Voltage is not too high, mine averages 1.336-1.344v.

What offset/turbo are you using?

I think I ran Prime95 for around 6 hrs.

Offset is +0.005

IIRC Additional Turbo was set at AUTO.

Cool guide kenny, I haven't OC'd for about 2 years (last OC was with a q9400 on a UD3 board). Your guide helped me understand more about the way the i series of CPUs OC. thumb.gif
Oh by the way, I'm not really new here, been a lurker for a long time, back when Syrillian - R.I.P, was modding all the time got me interested.

Just bought a 3570k yesterday, dropped into my extreme4 mobo and have EASILY hit 4.5ghz @ 1.080V, could probably even lower that voltage more.
I still have power saving mods enabled aswell.

Judging from the temps and voltages, it seems I have a beast of a chip (E1/L1) revision if that helps tongue.gif

Max temps with all fans etc on 50% so far has been 60c after 3 hours of prime with 90% ram, this is with a h50 cooler - which ill be upgrading very soon.
Bought myself a case of Redbull, so I will definately be up all this weekend to hit that 5GHz mark!

I tried some other guides and they didn't work too well, so I found this and am trying it. I first tried all the same settings in your guide, which worked but I had a insanely high vcore of like 1.350 and I like to stick with stock voltages to increase hardware lifespan. Well I have the LLC @ 2 and the vcore offset at like -1.80 so far @ 4.1 Ghz and IBT running fine. Gonna keep going lower. Weird thing is I tried other guides and I could only get 3.7Ghz stable with a fixed vcore of about 1.090

You should post your settings when you're finished having fun. I bought a i7 about 3-4 months ago and it too is Stepping:9, Revision: E1/L1. I'd love to be at that voltage with that speed lol.

But why does you vcore show 1.08 and not 1.080? I know they are the same numbers, but from what I've seen, mine always have 3 decimal places. For example, mine says 1.120 right now

It's going pretty good so far! I'm surprised by this chip! biggrin.gif

I'm not entirely sure by the decimal places with the vcore, as the other CPU-Z link I posted shows 3 aswell, in my CPU-Z on the computer, it did indeed show 1.080, but when Validated for some reason dropped a decimal place. doh.gif
