You could also try reducing the Load Line Calibration offset to allow more Vdroop, effectively lowering the load voltage, Try LLC2, maybe even LLC1 if you still need less load voltage.

Thank you for the input. I dropped the LLC down to Level 5 and now my voltages and temperatures are identical to my fixed mode settings under load.

Hello,

Thank you for the awesome guide. It's been really helpful so far. This is my first time ever overclocking and I've been following the guide step-by-step but I've come across an error.

I keep getting a BSOD with the 0x124 error every time I run Prime95.

I've tried increasing and decreasing both the VCore (Which I'm guessing is the Offset) and the VTT.

This error usually pops up when I have the multiplier at 44. Offset is set to +0.005v and I started with Turbo at +0.004 and tried to keep raising it in hopes of resolving the BSOD.

Like I mentioned, this is my first time overclock so if you could give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using an ASRock Z77 Pro 4, Intel i5 3570k and CoolerMaster EVO 212

Welcome to the forums, if you had success at 4.3 with +.004 turbo and +.005 offset, then you might need as much as .040 in turbo to stablilize. The error 0x124 is definitely VCore, keep going...but don't go over 1.400

Thanks for the quick reply! So VCore is the Offset Voltage then? And don't go over 1.400v, I don't think my Offset even lists a voltage past 0.0800 (or 0.800)

Both Offset and Additional turbo voltage are what controls you vcore. If you are stable at idle then you should only need to increase additional turbo voltage to stabilize your full load

Ah, thanks for clearing that up. So I always want to keep the Offset at +0.005v and just keep cranking up my Turbo until I stop getting the BSOD? Obviously don't exceed 1.400v with Turbo though?

Also, if my temps exceed 90c is there anything I can adjust to lower the temp or do I just need to drop the multiplier?

you have the right idea, crank it till you stop bsod, then use the guide on page 1 to stabilize...or if thermals get out of control drop the multi. very few chips are not able to hit 4.5 with ease.

Awesome, thanks again for all the help. I'm not really trying to go past 4.5ghz so hopefully this does the trick.

One question about Prime95, could I just run a Blend test or should I always do the custom and copy the picture exactly?

That is a matter of debate around here. If you notice, the gentleman the wrote the guide does not have his name in the club. It is because he doesn't use the same testing that he suggests, because stability is only so important to him. If you need absolute 100% stability, then use the custom settings, but the standard blend test will get you stable too. Honestly, I just run it for an hour now, but I don't do any business related stuff on my hardware, just browse, game, and movies...so a BSOD (which I don't get) would not be much more than an inconvenience.

I'm only gaming and browsing on this PC so I guess I'll just stick with the blend then. I'm going to fiddle with this when I get off work and I'll pop back in with the results.

Thanks again for all the help.
