Folding on 2600k, limits on Vcore and Temps? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Couple of thoughts on the changes suggested by bigvaL

Folding does like the RAM frequency, especially bigadv which may still be a possibility on a 2600k after the deadline changes.

I've never seen anyone else need to run the VRM switching freq at 500MHz or recommend doing so, most recommend 350MHz including Asus.

The CPU current capability shouldn't be an issue if it's "too high" because it's a capability, if you don't need to pull that much current then it shouldn't be forcing it so I see no reason to not use 140%.

Read about PLL voltage in the sandy stable club, going through many many hours of prime and trial and error with various PLL settings led me to use 1.65v for mine which took at least 10mV off of my vcore required for stability.

He will want his virtualization left on as it shouldn't hurt anything and he may very well be using a VM now or in the future for folding.

EDIT: JMattes I also leave turbo on and my understanding of it is the same as yours is that that is how SB overclocks. I've never seen it recommended to be disabled on Asus boards, might have on old non UEFI gigabyte boards though.

Would Increasing the VRM 350 to 500 decrease temps.. Whats the VRM Freq. even do?
I can lower the Current %.. think it would affect vcore or temp?
RAM is rated for 1.65.. Maybe I can undervolt, but I am not too sure it will be stable worth looking into.
PLL.. what would increasing it do with I am stable with it lower?
I need the Virtualization to run my VM for folding
Isnt Turbo Mode how the SB run the overclock?

VRM to 500 would increase temps of your VRMs. It might cause your OC to be more stable. It causes your VRMs to literally run at a higher frequency. I would not change this to 500. 500 is the max. Unless you're going to cool your VRMs and pay attention to them, leave it at 350 or something close.
The current % might lower your vcore a bit if you drop it down. Also, not sure about the temps but I'm sure it would make a small difference.
If the RAM is rated for 1.65, leave it there.
PLL might help you fine tune your OC. The temps don't change much but being at 1.5 it may be affecting you. There's a ton of stuff you can read on this. Most people say to mess with it in the range of 1.7-1.9. For the most part it doesn't change much and can be left at 1.8 or even auto for testing purposes.

I KNEW suggesting to turn off Virtualization would blow up in my face... redface.gif

Turbo mode means that it auto-OC's your chip when it's under full load. You want it to be all or nothing I'm assuming? Most people keep it off so it's either speedstepped down to say 1600 or all the way at 5000 or whatever it may be. For example the 2500k ships as 3.3 (turbo of 3.7). So with turbo on, your full speed is 3.3 but when it needs more it will OC to 3.7 on the fly. You can keep it like this if you want but when you're manually overclocking it doesn't matter. It's not going to work like that as far as I know.
