Right now?

4Ghz
Offset Voltage -0,095V
Turbo Voltage +0,004V
LLC level 5

Iddle - 0,888V
Load - 1,184V

For such overclocking should I leave the offset voltage and bumb turbo when needed? BTW i've read somewhere that it's better to set fixed voltage instead of offset when going for 4,5 and more. Theoretically I know what's the difference but what do you think?

Btw maybe one of you guys have their settings for 2500K@4,5Ghz? smile.gif

Its up to you, but offset overclocking on sandy/ivy is pretty easy, so no real need to go through all the trouble of finding a fixed then converting it. Yes, LLC3, offset +.005, turbo .004 and multi to 45x. And yes, keep pumping turbo til it stabilizes. As long as you keep it cool and you dont have to go nuts on voltage, 4.5 should be pretty easy to obtain.

Thank you again. I'll do that.

I'd like to ask though: is there any situation when I shoud bump offset voltage as well as turbo ? Or change CPU PLL voltage (don't know if 4,5ghz is high enogh to even touch it)

You were stable with such a huge negative offset, I have little doubt that you will be fine running +.005. CPU PLL sometimes helps in HUGE overclocks, like 5.0+, but that is only sometimes, and only for the big clocks. 4.5 is modest, easy to obtain, big enough to see a difference, but small enough to not fry your chip before its time.

Just to clarify: little doubt meaning no doubt or you think I may have to raise it? biggrin.gif (sry, not a native speaker).

Ok I won't touch it then. BTW temperatures around 70-74 during blend test in prime are ok?

Ok I've roughly tested my 4,5Ghz settings:

Offset -0,020V
Turbo +0,004
LLC 3

CPU-Z shows Vcore ~1,320V

After 20 minutes (I will run it for at least 1h to be sure ofc) it is stable but the temps went up to max 76-79C (depending on software - HW shows less than realtemp). Isn't it a little too much ? My cooler is Mugen 2.

sounds like you are right on target, temps are not stellar, but good for 1.32. Let is spin for an hour+ with 80% RAM custom blend and check for WHEA errors.

I'll do that. Tomorrow I'll also install an additional (2nd) fan in front of my case blowing the air in to lower the temps and see how it works. But for now I've tried these settings:
4,4Ghz
Turbo +0,004
Offset -0,050V
LLC3
Vcore 1,288V

Run Prime95 Blend test for an hour with no problems or WHEA errors. The temp was max 73C on one of the cores.

You could have left the multi at 45. As inedenimadam said, temps were getting a little hot but you still have enough room to stabilize 4.5ghz. You probably wouldn't be able to go any higher(46+) without a better cooler.

I will try to stabilize 4,5ghz but first I'll instal an additional fan, re-apply thermal paste and reseat the cooler.
