(Updated -Part II)= = Offset Mode Overclocking Starter Guide and Thread= = - Page 34

post #331 of 369
hi, i'm having little problem with offset.. i have a 3570k and p8z77-i deluxe and 16gb ram

i'm using all bios settings that TotallyDubbed use in this post http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboards/800#post_18498293

i'm stress with linx 20 cycle memory all (3h of test).. i find stability at 4.5ghz with min stable manual vcore (bios setting) at 1.230v.. and the vid in full load from coretemp is 1.3060..

1.230 minus 1.3060 is -0.076 .. so i tried offset -0.070 , -0.075, ad -0.080.. but i can't enter in windows.. always bsod..

why don't work??

thnx

First of all man:
Stress test with Prime 95. (don't forget to tick those options)

Now with VID - you should know that VID fluctuates with what the program that's being ran.
my VID thus offset for p95 was +0.045 HOWEVER for folding it was +0.07
So VID changes - and that's why I'm saying stress test with P95 - because the VID will be close to what you'll be running on games etc.
linx might not be giving you the right VID you need and thus not giving you stability on offset.

That said, make sure that MANUAL VCORE is stable for 24hrs on P95, and once that is established then go to offset.

I should state that a 1.3v VID is quite rare and quite high.
Your calculations are correct - so it must be related to what I said above thumb.gif

OK, thank you very much. Now I restart test for find the min stable manual vcore under prime95 with options that you suggest.

but 5h of test may suffice? i have not need extreme stability.. I use it only for little gaming and photoshop.. not for rendering or similar long work..

up to you dude - but personally I would never run a system with under 12hrs of prime.
24hrs is my personal time I do stress testing at.

ok, i will try 12h thumb.gif

sorry man, i try to abouse of you biggrin.gif :

on my p8z77-i deluxe, CPU PLL Voltage is not free selectable.. i can chose only auto or ''+0.10 v" ,there isn't possibility to insert a number value.. i leave it on auto?

and, finally, your settings are '''definitive''' to be stable at 4.5ghz with the best idle power saving ? or there is other choices like about llc? (sorry for this noob question rolleyes.gif)

leave PLL - don't worry about it - auto is fine

As for power saving etc - it is offset with the c states + windows power option set to balanced (worry about that later)

But if you can be stable at a lower PLL, isn't that better?

In theory it is, but a lot of people have tested and proved that it hasn't changed much. So only worry about it as a last thing, rather than anything else lol

Yes I know about speedstep, c1e, and windows power option.. I just read first page and I was little confused on llc about offset.. with different llc option I can have lower idle vcore
in comparison to llc ultra high?

What do you mean it hasn't changed much? You mean it doesn't have a significant effect on anything (temps, performance,etc.)?
