Hi everyone! Great thread and big thanks to criminal for starting this (Y).
Been reading this thread a lot to correctly OC my 3820. Currently it's set to 4.625 GHz (125x37) and Vcore is
offset(+) @ auto. With these settings I pass easily Intel Burn Test (Standard) but with very poor GFlops (~60).
PS! WIth IBT temps are maxed out at 70 C
I know that I should hit much higher with 4.625 GHz but I don't know what holds me back. I also tried to set VCore to
manual and alter it to anything below default (~1.380) but it wouldn't pass IBT anymore (system BSODs)
Can anyone help me to figure out which settings could be wrong?
Here are my system specs:
Intel i7 3820 + Xigmatex Dark Knight (120 mm Night Hawk edition)
Corsair Vengeance CL10 16 gb 1600Mhz
MSi GTX 660Ti
AI overclock tuner: MANUAL
CPU VCORE: ~1.372 OFFSET, SIGN: +, @ AUTO
VCCSA VOLTAGE: ~1.100 MANUAL, SIGN: +, @ AUTO
CPU LLC: MEDIUM
CPU CURRENT CAPACITY: 120%
VCCSA LLC: REGULAR
VCCSA CURRENT CAPACITY: 120%
CPU Power Duty Control: T.Probe
CPU Power Phase Control: OPTIMIZED
DRAM CURRENT CAPACITY: 120%
DRAM Power Phase Control: OPTIMIZED
Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor: DISABLED
All C's are enabled
Everything else is on default (AUTO).
Two questions: Why can't I score higher than 60 GFlops in IBT and why can't I alter VCore below default
(appr. 1.380). I know that some users here are running similar OC's with much lower VCores.
What am I doing wrong guys :/
I'm really digging this OC stuff and OCN (Y) since I got new rig and I've already found great threads and useful information!Any help is welcome!!
