That is a well documented quirk about these new chips. One core seems to be around 10deg difference from the rest. But you still have to use that as the highest temp if it does give you the highest.

ok, so we have the same settings. this is weird, i upped my multiplier to 45 and ran OCCT for 30 minutes and it passed. not sure why i gained 100mhz like that, but i'll keep it and leave it alone. i am going to run prime tonight to make sure. i use the small setting, if that's correct.

Great guide. Spent a few hours reading it. I joined OC.net years ago but can't remember my old username.

Have not gotten around to adding another heat sink/fan. I have 3, 120mm fans: front, back, top and ambient is a rather warm 29C/83F (Outside temp is 95F). I am just wondering if anyone else started off with the stock h/s/f and what were you able to run it at? I have the 2600K btw.

Thanks!

I had to send my power supply back through RMA due to a random spark during power up. (still worked just didn't want to take the risk). But when it gets back I want to see if I can keep my 4.5GHz but lower my vcore. It's at 1.24 right now and I'm curious what I should lower first, turbo voltage or voltage offset? Offset is +.005 and turbo is +.004(I believe I have that right tongue.gif)

IMo, offset should never drop into the negative. It will send the idle voltage to below what Intel already set it at (Intel is going to find the lowest voltage it can already do to produce the lowest temps possible for best release).

The turbo can't go negative, I think. If it could, I would set that to negative.

So the lowest setting I support is +0.005 offset and +0.004 turbo. Anything lower and you are challenging Intel themselves.

Ah I see, so I should just keep it where it's at? Once again, thanks for the great guide. I'm sure I'll eventually be back if anything pops up.

You should make a guide on how to make a software package like you did. I wanted to make one before but many ones are more complicated then the one you made.

I'm using the hyper 212 EVO. Just ran prime for 11+ hours. Rock stable at 4.5 and i am at the lowest possible volts. Temps did get up to 95 at times though. I will post screen shots after work frown.gif.

I thought if you are using like LLC 2-4 (increased overall voltage)...the idle voltage will be higher than normal stock LLC5. If that is the case, then using negative offset should be fine...since the idle voltage is still at or above the stock LLC 5 idle voltage....no? Unless, this is not true for idle voltage...but only load voltage.

load line calibration mainly reduces vdroop under load i think. it is hard to gauge with offset voltages because you never know what the target voltages under load are(unless you set the LLC to 100%) either way undervolting isnt particulary dangerous for your chip or something, it simply doesnt work with every chip because some might not actually work at that voltage(otherwise your vid would be set lower by intel). as long as you keep C1e enabled it should work most of the time due to it running at lower clock speeds at that moment.
i guess if you want to keep it in the guide you should probably put a big caution with it or something tongue.gif
