i guess if you want to keep it in the guide you should probably put a big caution with it or something tongue.gif

yeah i guess your right...so the increased voltage of LLC Load Line should only happen when you go under load...but not at idle...so regardless of LLC Load Line...your idle voltage should be the same....

hmmmm....idk...i just don't get why Intel would give you the option to go so negative at such a high range if it didn't make much sense...lol.

well if you are looking for say a 3770s or 3770t and you cant find one you can simply buy a regular 3770 and reduce multi/voltage to get to the same speeds, voltages, heat output and power draw smile.gif

That seems awfully hot. What is your ambient temp? Now I never run prime on anything other than stock settings for prime, and never for more than a two to three hours max, but my temps never exceeded the low 70s (core temps), and usually stay in the mid 60s. Did your get into the low 90s immediately? That just seems very hot IMHO.

I'm pretty sure the motherboard manufacturer is the one who sets the voltage limits in the BIOS.

On the flip side of "almost useless" negative voltage, you also have the option to set the voltage to +2v which would instantly fry the thing... I think the numbers are much less significant and are just there to provide a nifty range of numbers that can satisfy any user.

Again though, I'm not saying using negative voltage is harmful. I just am no longer supporting it in the guide because, imo, as soon as you move into the negative range you are highly risking stability.

well, i for one, thank you for making the guide. i have a rock stable 4.5 i5 3750k chip at the lowest possible volts. they only thing i can't find is the "hyper threading" option. i didn't see it in my bios. other than that, i am super de duper happy!
thanks again!

i5s have no hyperthreading.

Yep, that's the big difference between the i7 and the i5.

Wow, it went wrong in the very first step. I updated it in windows, computer hangs for a while shuts itself down while updating, conclusion: Dead mobo. Now I've bought a new bios chip from ebay, I hope I will get it tomorrow. Hoping it will fix the problem

Soooo, no one wants to admit to starting off with the stock h/s/f? wink.gif I know there are more female OCers now, but I was one of the first back in the day of dual Celeron 300A's. Just need a quick tip guys. I haven't had the time to pull everything to mount a better heat sink. Back in the day, I always pulled the stock h/s/f (if it had one like the Slot 1s )before installing it, but this time I didn't. This is a recent build I started in early April. Decided to forgo IB as I the prices for SB were so great as well as easier to cool.

Post 973: 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.

I was not aware females existed on the interwebs... tongue.gif

I've done a couple runs on the stock h/s/f before my custom one came, but the temps should always be pretty high with it. Still though I think a 4.0-4.4GHz clock should be achievable... but unsure about the extra heat from the 4 threads on the 2600k.

My recommendation would be this though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
