Lowered my volts down from 1.39V to 1.26 @ 4.5 (I'm never letting the vcore be set at auto again) and my temps went down by 10- 12C smile.gif Stable @ 4.5 with my 212 EVO. This thing is a monster!

How do you test the stability of the new voltage? For me the only test that is BF3 shows 100% CPU stability. Prime95 for my cpu @4.5ghz needs 1.26v, BF3 1.30v.

I think that is why Prime95 testing is pointless. BF3 in MP 64 players on the board shows 100% stability.

Hi Guys,


Since my last post I have settled for the 4.5Ghz overclock @ stable temperatures on my 3770k. I have experienced no WHEA errors, but have something else that I should look at. Whenever I enable Virtu MVP on my machine everything is fine until I start certain 3D programs, such as the nvidia settings preview for example(Games work just fine). If virtu is enabled when clicking the preview setting in the nvidia control panel, the CPU goes to full load, and the system(slowly) freezes.

I have now disabled virtu and let my gtx670 handle everything, but would still like to find out why it is responding like this. It doesn't do this at stock clock so could it be that I have(rather accidentally) overclocked my igpu? Mobo settings are as per the guide, but I can take screenshots if necessary.


Cheers!

Hello, where can I read about the offset setting? I have seen some having negative which doesn't make sense to me because if overclocking requires more voltage then a negative offset only allows core voltage to be less? Thanks

Another help, I usually see my voltage at 1.26 but most of the time CPUID Hardware monitor records 0.95v min - 1.32 max. I have 2600k with x44 and +0.005 offset. Should I be concerned?

what level do you use?

LLC 3 and +0.004 Turbo.

Thank you so much for this!

it's sad that I only have a very low overclock and my system is already not liking it.

system is on sig. i7-2600k overclocked to 4.3 GHz 1.25v is best I can do with my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. Idle temps are around 40, and load at almost 90. really weird, couple of possible- reasons:
1- My case is the Corsair 550d with default fan config, which is really quiet. but airflow's not so good.
2 Next is I think I did not do a good job with the thermal compund when i installed the heatsink.

Hi,

Thanks for the guide! Although it is for Asrock I found plenty of useful information for my Asus board.
However, the BIOS is missing the turbo voltage paramter... no idea why.

BF3 MP 64players run for 2 hours and then show the results of overclocking

prime and memtest is crap and do not show the true stability of overclocked CPU

the prime you only have to check the maximum temperatures that can occur during strong CPU and the end of its usefulness

I've already played BF3 for an hour while Prime 95 was still running in the background. And it still runs fine after exiting.
Feels really solid. smile.gif
