I upgraded my cooling and would now be ready to overclock my CPU again, but I still have trouble where to start, since my motherboard sets the Vcore very high when I use the offset mode.

My hardware:
Code:
i5-2500k, Asrock Z68 Pro3 (Bios 2.16), Prolimatech Armageddon with 2*140mm Prolimatech Blue Vortex

If I set the offset to +0.005V and the turboboost voltage to +0.004V I get the following voltages while the VID is at 1,301V at 34x100.
Code:
LLC5 ~1.225V
LLC4 ~1.25V
LLC3 ~1.265V
LLC2 ~1.290V

How do you think I'm supposed to start off?

Use negative offset to bring your vcore down if its too high

And I'm using Aida64 and CpuZ for monitoring.

UPD: It seems it starts to drop frequency when temperature goes over 70 C.

I tried your settings and I don't get a very low vcore. I don't know if it is my chip or what but I have followed the guide and various user settings and I get better results when I just let the bios do my overclock. I set it to 4.4ghz and my vcore is 0.020 less than your 4.3ghz settings. I can even safely let the bios OC to 4.6ghz and it is very stable with just a slight bump in the vcore max during load but is still less than what I got following any of the guides here.

I can do 4.7 with his settings, I mean with his vcore, I don't touch anything else.
multi all core 47 offset vcore + 5 all the rest at auto.
the c-states I leave also on auto.

That is pretty much what the auto overclock does. without actually getting to see what auto really does I can't know what, if any offsets that it performs. I do the 4.6ghz very solid and have never crashed but going to the 4.8ghz settings it won't boot and I just don't feel like running the gauntlet anymore to test my settings a million times just for bragging rights. Going from 4.4ghz to 4.6ghz I didn't notice any boost in performance so I leave it at 4.4ghz 24/7.

yes I understand that, I leave it at 45 for 24/7.
I don't overclock my sytem that much, I know what it can do under a cooler master seidon 240.

first score is 52x multi and 100.4 bclk.
vcore 1.475 in bios



also 3d mark 11 and vantage I can bench on that multi, but I just did it a few days ago at 51x

What multi are you trying to get stable? Make sure you run prime 95 for 8+ hours to check stability.

Just for benching that isn't required because it won't be his 24/7 setting.
