I have increased turbo and turbo only till it is p95 test stable for atleast 5 min. Turbo voltage is at +.102. Now temps are still good. Now do I bump to next multi and repeat the same process or have I done something terribly wrong?

What multiplier are you shooting for?

50 to say the least. Basically I want to make sure that I can reach it when the time is need and be stable. Does that make sense? For a daily I generally run 4.6 or 4.7 for gaming and video converting.

If your going for a 50 multiplier then i would just set it at 50 instead of slowly increasing the multiplier. Most people are not running a 50 multiplier 24/7 though.

I would prefer you set a +.005 offset, but you said it was only available in .050 steps, so I would rather see you go negative offset than over-volt it at every step.

If you are not stable at those settings you should:

ADD turbo voltage

if voltage gets over 1.35 or temps go over 80 reduce to x44 and reduce voltage.

OK So i played around a little and as was expected am confused. First of all apparently I do NOT have an LLC setting in the BIOS, so nothing has been done on that front. Here are images of Load and Idle, the "core voltage" number stays where you said, but I'm not sure what the VID number means, and that jumps up to above the voltage that I wanted it to stay at. Suggestions?

NINJA EDIT: This is with Offset at -50mV, Additional Turbo at .004, multi is 42. EVerything else is according to the BIOS setup in the initial post.

EDIT2: It BSOD within 5 mins at 43x

No LLC and only .050 offset steps? What motherboard is this?

Anyway, set your desired multiplier and keep adding additional turbo voltage until it stabilizes or you go over your comfort zone with temperatures or voltage( at which point you just reduce the multiplier and try again)

Does the VID thing in Coretemp mean anything, or should I just be going off the Vcore number in CPU-z as the voltage?

And its a asrock pro3 gen 3. I think its this BIOS revision on this board is just terrible.

VID is not going to be useful for overclocking, VCore is what we want to watch. . . but understanding VID will help you understand what you are doing when you are overclocking.


Intel essentially bins chips before they leave the factory. They assign each chip a voltage table based upon some sort of stability testing. Inside that voltage table is a list of how much voltage your chip will require at each of the different multipliers. What you are seeing in Coretemp as VID is that specific voltage numbe intel has set for that specific multiplier. This sounds like you should be thinking "great, intel already gave me my overclock magic number," "all I have to do is just plug that voltage and go". But intel really only checks your chip at the multipliers that it is sold to run at, i.e. "stock" clocks, and they are more than generous with the voltage, at the lower clocks, and very rarely accurate past stock clocks. I have to give it to Intel, it does a good job pushing their chips out in such a fashion that every last one of them will run on any compatible board regardless of minor variations in voltage delivery. But that is where intels interest in your voltage requirements ends...with an almost arbitrary table of numbers that is largely untested and often over volted. If you leave everything in BIOS on default, the board will deliver voltage to the chip as prescribed by intel...bleh!

Now, you have two different types of voltage control on your motherboard; offset and turbo. The VID table I discussed would make a "curve" if you were to plug in all the info for "voltage to multiplier". Offset moves that WHOLE curve up or down in an exact fashion. If you go -.050, it gets applied to the VID at 16x and 45x(or whatever your max multiplier is), and everything in between. (This negative offset is often handy because intel over volts most chips.) The curve does not change shape or slope with offset, just position up and down. Turbo voltage is voltage that only applies to the highest multiplier you have set. This additional turbo actually changes the shape of the curve at the higher points. So to wrap all that windy-ness up in two little formulas: VCORE=VID+OFFSET for all non turbo multipliers, VCORE=VID+OFFSET+TURBO for the one turbo multiplier.

Edit to add: overclocking sandy and ivy is pretty easy compared to other iterations. Once you mirror all the other settings in the first post, all you really have to worry about it turbo and multiplier. if your computer boots and doesnt crash at idle at -.050, your offset and other settings should be fine. thumb.gif

Edit to add: overclocking sandy and ivy is pretty easy compared to other iterations. Once you mirror all the other settings in the first post, all you really have to worry about it turbo and multiplier. if your computer boots and doesnt crash at idle at -.050, your offset and other settings should be fine. thumb.gif

Great thanks for all the info. I'm just gonna leave it at 42x for now, it seem stable just tweaking those few things, doesn't get too hot and the voltage stays pretty low during prime. The only other things I didn't mess with were the C states, I left them at default, which is they are all enabled. I figured it its not messing things up I'm not gonna mess with it. Thanks again.

You want disable all but C1E, otherwise you might have issues with sleep/idle states.
