C states are enable it just didnt took a picture of that biggrin.gif

but are my setting right_? it just that 10seconds thing i need to change to auto?

i was trying to overclock my 3930K my original goal is 4.4GHZ, but i dont have any success on doing so ... would like to know what i am doing wrong or missing?
here is a picture running Cinebench



and the CPU downclock by it self to 3.6Ghz or 3.5Ghz i dont know why is doing that when i have voltage fixed. mad.gif


here i have the setting iv been working on... i got an idea how to setup this from OCN SB-E Overclocking Guide.




First things first. Change CPU Ratio setting to "All Cores".

Secondly, 1.4V is WAY too high for a fixed voltage AND an additional offset if you're only trying to hit 4.4. Try 1.2 fixed and leave offset at auto, as using offset requires knowing your stock voltage/VID which is different for every chip.

Third, put VTT back to auto. You're running it too high, which is going to kill your chip's IMC if you try to run that 24/7. You don't need to touch it anyway outside of very specific circumstances.

If you get crashes at 1.2 fixed, try 1.25 and then if you still crash (which I doubt), try 1.3. You can dial it in more finely but it takes a lot of time to do so, so those are easy milestones to start at.

As for the C-States comment, that was aimed at the guide creator as I was confused as to why he left C-states on for fixed mode.

Also, accidental double post. Hit quote instead of edit.

i was just doing what the guide said... im just noob in OC sorry man,
do you know who to figure the offset?

let say my chip is 1.355 on bios does that means my offset should be 0.45? im a little bit confuse who to properly
get the offset...

now when i get home gonna try
1.2 fixed
offset auto
VTT auto

Your bios is setup correctly but there isn't any reason to use fixed voltage on these CPU's. Set your offset at a +0.005 and turbo at +0.004.

Increase additional turbo voltage if prime 95 fails or a worker stops.

Only C3 and C6 need to be disabled. If these are enabled that can cause instability with your OC

That part of the guide is incorrect

how do i know what is my VID to setup the offset voltages?

can some one show me with a picture?

Set offset to 0.00 and run a bench like Prime95 in Windows. Using HWMonitor or some other program that can monitor voltages, check what your load Vcore is and that's your stock VID.

so for instance i put my Vcore at 1.25 and then do those test and the Vcore drop to 1.21 thats my VID?

Not quite. You want to have all voltages at "auto" when you're trying to find stock VID. It can also help to set offset to zero just to ensure your board isn't doing anything odd. Once you bench, whatever voltage it's sitting at the most is your stock VID. Ignore what it droops to because that doesn't count.
