I'm going to try these ones out.

I'm looking to get 4.625 under load and with SpeedStep enabled it should drop itself down when idling to preserve power?

What else I could try?
Does rest of the settings look normal? What about LLC's?
LLc ultra or LLC extreme they will work cause that's what I do for my clocks
Yes s/step and c1e . Disable c3 , c6 , c7 and dropvcore to 1.335 - 1.345 with LLC extreme and work your way up on vcore till she boots / stable .Then run P95 on blend for 1 hr . No crashes or failed workers after this time is a good indicator about your stability and load temps

Thanks!smile.gif

Gonna try out!

But what about VCCSA LLC? Should I tweak that one too? And tweak Vcore in manual state?

Sorry, I'm kind of new in OC'ing but willing to learn thumb.gif

Run that one on high and vcore manual wink.gif I can run this clock at 1.335vcore tongue.gif

Yes! Honour goes to HOMECINEMA-PC!!!thumb.gif

Finally passed IBT (Standard) again with altered vcore.

Currently used settings:

Vcore manual @ 1.340
VTT: 1.20000
VCCSA: 1.200
C3, C6, C7: DISABLED
LLC VCore: ULTRA HIGH
LLC VCCSA: HIGH

Temps were 65-70C while testing with IBT. I know, quite high but I'm running on air atm ( Xigmatex Dark Knight 120mm). Planning to buy H100i or H80. Currently using Corsair 300r so fitting a H100i would be difficult. Once I manage to go on water (GPU too) and buy some extra fans for chassis I will run IBT again and see what happens with temps.

But why is that my GFlops are so poor? frown.gif Around 60. What could possibly affect that?

What version of widows are you running 7 or 8? If 7 have you updated to service pack one yet ? I believe this could be the reason for low Gflops on IBT thinking.gif
and you need to put your rig specs in to your sig so I /us out there can see you specs to help you a bit more smile.gif
70c is good for air cooling too thumb.gif if it was running at 85+c that would concern me wink.gif

You were right! I hadn't installed SP1 yet.

100 GFlops smile.gif

But no pros without cons. IBT would pass only 5 or 4 tests and my temps are little higher (74C max). Can changes in OS (freshly installed SP1?) affect settings in BIOS? Do I need to go over BIOS settings and change something?
I'm working on putting my rig here.

Thanks again!

I would assume that more gflops = more load = higher temps . But now try LLC on extreme 1st same vcore , if no luck put up vcore to 1.35 leave LLC as is give that a go . NO more than 82c max . Gaming should come in at about 50c - 60c wink.gif

I set Vcore LLC to Extreme and Vcore to 1.350 and temps maxed out at 78C but passed IBT with GFlops at ~100.

Is this kind on setup safe to run for 24/7? I got speedstep still enabled.

I noticed watching CPU-Z that my core speed won't drop even if I'm idling. Doesn't speedstep mean that when I'm idling the core speed it lowers itself to preserve power and to also alter temps? What am I missing here? I mean I would gladly let cpu to "calm down" when it's idle and to pump it up when I'm gaming/mixing in pro tools/etc.

Well Done applaud.gif Temps sound good to me thumb.gif Now do some gameing for a hour and see how she goes . No crashes and your well on your way to a stable overclock smile.gif
I do recommend Prime 95 on blend for a hour as well . Leave s/step and c1e on this will help a lot with your idle temps as well . Glad I could help you get started . Welcome to the OCN aaevil.gif


Don't let that worry you what cpu-z is saying not saying , Core temp monitoring prog shows your temps and how many watts your cpu is pulling that's what I look at to guage what s/step and c1e are doing at idle and load smile.gif
