So I have an ASRock z68 Extreme4 Gen3, i5 2500k, corsair h80, 12gigs of GSKill Ripjaw 1333, gtx 970.

First off I can't seem to access what my CPU Core Voltage is. Not in CPU-Z, HWMonitor, the only thing that I can get is in HWiNFO64 it'll tell me the processor and then a static @X.XXX volts next to it. It doesnt change under load and is different than the voltage I set the BIOS to if I go with fixed.

I started recording the min and max VID on different settings. Then I started recording max temps under load.

The @X.XXX is what the processor reads at in HWiNFO64.

Stock Min VID .976 Max VID 1.276
4.0ghz @1.35xx(in HWiNFO64) -.75 offset 1.381 . 991
4.0 ghz -.090 offset 1.381 .986
4.0ghz -.125 offset 1.381 .986 Temps - 78c to 85c
4.0ghz -.150 offset 1.381 .981 74c to 81c
4.0ghz max -.155 offset 1.381 .981 74c to 81c
4.1ghz max @1.3511v in HWiNFO64, -.130 offset 1.386 .986 79c to 86c
4.2ghz max @ 1.3561v in HWiNFO64 -.110 offset 1.391 .991 83c to 90c
4.0ghz @1.2810v in HWiNFO64, fixed 1.200v crashed

Why does the min and max VID not change when I change the offset?
Why does it read @1.2810V in HWiNFO64 when I set it at a fixed 1.200V in BIOS?
Why can't I access my CPU Core Voltage?
Why do my temps seem high?

I reseated and reapplied paste very recently.

Thanks in advance I've been working on this for quite a long time.

Did you follow the guide in the first post?

Can you post screen shots of your BIOS?

What CPU and Motherboard do you have ?

First of all I wanted to try to disable the turbo boost technology in order to see if the motherboard was reacting to any new information I give it. I was thinking if i disable my turbo boost technology the CPU clock in realtemp would be stuck at 1600 mhz so i could clarify if it responds to new information.

I followed the guide and have been trying to read as much as I can about overclocking in general.

I have written down all the changes I have made to the bios in the first post I made on the thread.

The same in regards to my specs of my computer smile.gif

Did you install any overclocking software from ASRock?

After flashing, have you tried clear CMOS?

I didnt install any asrock OC software. I have cleared the CMOS by the button on the back of the motherboard. Will try with jumper today and if that won't work replace the battery with a new one

[Solution] Updated my windows completely, now the system is running a 4.5 ghz stable oc.
Thanks for the help!

My Vcore is at 1.368 V. with the lowest offset value. The guide states it makes the CPU unstable by going with a negative offset but I have seen various cases where they had negative offset. Is it better having a negative offset and then go more turbovoltage?

negative offset is tricky, I personally use it as well because...what the heck...if it doesn't need that much voltage idle why overfeed it? Again, it is tricky, because there is not a stability test for "idle", and really, its not even at idle that is the problem, it is the super fast transitions between idle and load that will cause instability...like opening a new tab in a browser, or clicking the start button, or watching you tube...very light and quick load shifts.

The 3570k should idle around 0.900, so that is a good starting point if you do decide to use negative offset. Another thing to watch for is what LLC you are using and the difference between MAX VCore and loaded VCore. If you go with a more flat line LLC, those numbers will be pretty close together (good for high overclocking), but will also raise your lower steps (bad for power savings). LLC 3 should be a good compromise for 4.5.

I hope any of that helps.

Thanks for the fast response smile.gif Think i will just go with these settings. Getting money for skylake, new mb and ddr4 ram in 3 month. So if the CPU goes down i have a backup plan! Really awsome forum!

I have been running higher than 1.368 for several years now on my 3570k...I dont think you have anything to worry about!
