Thanks as always!
If you are running 100 strap yes . Put in desired vcore in on manual setting then set to offset vcore then set to + positive vcore an add .010 - 030 .
So that would work out like this.......... 1.3vcore + LLC + 0.020 pos offset vcore = 1.34 - 1.35 vcore

What does the boot_device LED have to do with changing those OC settings? Pretty weird.
Does anyone have a good 2011 socket picture of the cross method being used for heatsink thermal paste? I felt like I was applying too much when I did it the first time applying it in a cross fashion w/ 4 dots in between the quadrants. I want to reseat and reapply the paste but want to make sure I'm applying the correct amount.
I installed 2 Noctua 140mm's on the backside of my Corsair H110 Radiator in a pull fashion to complete my push/pull intake with the corsair stock fans, and my temps dropped a little bit, but not as much as I'd like. Right now they read:
(Ambient around 20-23C)
Kinda driving me nuts that I can't get the 3rd and 4th core under 30C.
Hey man havin fun or what eh ?
1. raise the vcore in manual mode first to say 0.020 then set to offset v and add say another 0.020 pos and try that
2. No idea whats goin on there
3. Your rig specs are impressive
SLI 680's what do you get on say 3D mark 11 or 13 or Valley benchmarks with yours ?
4. I will take pic and post tim app .Too much = pouring out sides
5. Core 0 is my nemesis Edited by HOMECINEMA-PC - 6/25/13 at 2:52am
