Asus Maximus Extreme Z coming in tomorrow. Checked QVL for ram and this isn't listed. Have you used Vengence 4x4gb? - Page 4

The SSD has absolutely nothing to do with the CPU multiplier or LLC, so not sure what to tell you without more info. You sure you didn't change any other settings?

Finally got this thing to overclock and stable at 4.6 and have not tried going higher. Multiplier is obviously 46, VCore at 1.36V, Dram is at 1.48v, CPU at idle is at 25.0c and in prime 95 never got above 62c. Load line calibration is set to 75% Digi+Vram Cpu over protection is disabled and the VRM Freq is at 500KHZ. One thing I don't quite understand is how to know if I am feeding to much voltage? How do I test this and should I push the processor a bit more? Thanks Cytosin!!

Install RealTemp 3.7 and run it. In the upper right hand corner you'll see a little box that has what looks like a stopwatch. Click the box and the view will change to VID (Voltage Identification). This is the amount of voltage your CPU "wants." Now also open CPU-Z, and look at the "Core Voltage" (VCore) field in the top middle. That's how much voltage your CPU is actually getting. Your goal is to make the VID and VCore match as closely as possible, both at idle and under load. Following the above instructions you can easily see how close the two numbers are at idle. Next, run Intel Burn Test or Prime 95 for a minute or two and watch the VID and VCore change as you stress the CPU, and again observe the difference between the two numbers, if any. Post the numbers here when you're done, both at idle and under load.

Hi Cytosin,
Here are a few pics. Using Asus sensor recorder, cpu-z and real temp 3.70. Stable is looks in real temp it's 1.36
and in Asus sensor recorder Vcore is 1.352 and in CPU-Z I'm getting the same. Under load in prime 95 I'm seeing 1.35 in CPU-Z and 1.37 in the VID in real temp. Cpu tempe never seems to get above 65c which tells me my H100 is doing a pretty good job.

Congrats, looks you're stable while slightly undervolting, which is great. If you ever start to lock up under load, you can consider upping LLC to 100%.

It looks, however, like you have speedstep and/or C3/C6 turned off. Those functions will step the multiplier down to x16 at idle, which will lower temps and voltages while idling. That can increase your CPU's longevity and save on your power bills, but it's entirely up to you.

I don't so the reason in pushing the processor at idle hence why I will keep speedstep enabled. I plan to push the processor more to see what I can get out of it. Is there any formula for voltage to cpu speed? For example for every 1 multiplier do you add X where x is the value of a voltage percent? Thanks again!
