I found a way to see the 4 cores separately in Core Temp and the four cores at 4.5 are around 1.2260. It goes up to 1.2310 sometimes but right back down.

EDIT: FUNK, I just downloaded this a couple of days ago so I'm sure I have the most up to date version..maybe not?? All I see is temperature...weird.

When you start it up try and click on "sensors only" and then hit run.

I don't see that as an option anywhere. It is version 1.23.0.

EDIT: I am more comfortable with the 4.5 overclock. Thanks again for your help. +1

Due to the fact that there's 736 pages, I have only read the first 3 or 4, the last 3 or 4, and a selection in the middle,so forgive me if this has been asked before, but using the Prime Test in the first post, I get immediate rounding errors on 4-6 cores, with the rest failing shortly thereafter. I'm using an i7 2700K, currently at 4.8gHz, and +0.005/+0.004 (still happens with the core set as high as 1.5v and turbo at +0.012). Normal blend works fine after 'Priming' with a minute or 2 of In-place large FFTs, and was stable 3 hours later. I suspected RAM, but memtest came up fine, and still happening at 1.7v Dram. Is the custom blend a must? Or is standard blend fine for testing?

Can post screenshots and provide more details if needed.

Sorry for the double post, but Tapatalk doesn't let me edit for some reason.

I just tried the recommended blend again and it worked fine for 8 minutes at about 80C, then the temps said 'screw you' and spiked to 98 within the space of 30 seconds. Might have to pull the cooler and double check that I didn't derp when I refreshed the paste earlier today.

Blend test is pretty much the gold standard for testing, if you cant pass it, then you are not stable. standard blend does not test enough RAM. rounding errors and core failures are sure signs of instability. Large FFTs are usually easier on the processor than the small, and unless you only plan on running large instruction set on your machine, you should not ignore the rest. The small stress the system more and will generate considerably more heat. l is there a reason you are shooting for 4.8 specifically? 1.5 is a lot of voltage, you should try to keep it under 1.35ish.

Start back at the beginning and try to stabilize 4.0 and work your way up from there. run your RAM to spec while overclocking.

As I said in my next post, it's now running as far as temps let it, which I will be addressing next. The cooler is certainly up to the task (Thermaltake Trio OCK) but I may have put a little too much paste on when I replaced it after cleaning. Related question, does Arctic Silver 5 have a shelf life?

1.5V on air is asking allot. You might be able to do it, but I doubt it. Either way, your current settings at 4.8 are crying for more voltage, and I dont see any headroom for it. I would advise against going over the rated absolute max from intel, and really suggest staying under 1.35 on air. AS5 should be good as long as it has not separated or dried up.

I was shooting for 4.8 because it was the highest that I could get windows to boot. I was looking for a little extra over the 4.5 I had it at. The 1.5 was a test run, to see if more voltage would have fixed the issue, I would never have expected it to be temp stable at that. I'm fairly new to this, so believe me, I'm trying to suck all this in like a sponge.

What I have gathered so far, is that 4.8 might just be unobtainable with my current cooling, so I should back it off and settle for 4.5/4.6 until I can afford to put a decent water system together.

Thanks for all the info.
