dude i want that Desktop wallpaper....lol

using a i7-3820 with a R4F ... would running 125x36 at 1.350V give me a good OC?

What's the highest voltage that you guys think is usable for 24/7 use on water cooling. Temps aren't an issue.

How long do you want your cpu to last? I'd say 1.45v is the safest amount of voltage for the vcore 24/7 with adequate cooling. Just don't expect it to run for 10 years.

Hey guys,

I have been playing around with my new system to reach my 5 GHz goal. After much trial and error, I have settled for 4.8 GHz as you can see on the screen shot. I am in the process of testing for stability, but in the meantime I would like to know your opinions regarding my current overclock. Should I set the multiplier to 43, set the CPU strap to auto and manually adjust the BCLK until I reach the desired frequency or should the BCLK be fixed to a certain value and change the multiplier accordingly. In other words, should I go for higher BCLK and lower multiplier or the other way around? I am using an extreme load line calibration and manually set the voltage to 4.5, but that results in around 4.64 V when stressing the CPU to the max. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks!

I'd go down to a 4.5 - 4.6 and lower those voltages. Not saying it's bad, just don't like being that close to the max. tongue.gif Nice OC btw. You won't see any difference between 4.5 and 4.8 other than during benchmarks.

I'd use CPU Strap 125 & play with multiplier to achieve 5GHz overclock. You can try CPU Strap 125 & multiplier to 40. If you can't boot with x40 multiplier, lower the multiplier & play with BCLK (e.g. 128 or 129).

Alright, so I took your advice and settled for a 4.625 GHz 24/7 overclock. However, I am still trying to figure out the best way to maintain stability under full load. As you all know, there is a voltage drop of around 0.01-0.02 under heavy load. I have two options now, set a high initial voltage so that i get around 1.392 V under full load or set a low voltage and have the load line calibration set to either high, very high or extreme. Either one will bump up the initial voltage under load. What do you suggest I do?
post #1250 of 6499
I would go with whatever gives you the lowest constant Vcore. So, low Vcore and as high as you need to go with llc to provide stability. Avoid excess voltage while idling. You will have to use trial and error to find the best combo. I actually keep mine at auto and it droops more when not needed, and less at high loads.
