Problem with overclocking 960t

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm new here and haven't OCed much. The problem is I can overclock my cpu to 4GHz (1.45V) with gigabyte's easy tune 6 and pass OCCT for 2 hours (at least). But when I oc in bios i need more voltage. When I've set the voltage in bios to 1.45V, LLC, I think, increases it to 1.52 under load. Or that's what both cpu-z and hwmonitor says. If I disable LLC it crashes. ***? My motherboard is ga-970a-ud3.. Can anyone help? Sorry about my bad english..

well, you dont want your voltage that high in the first place. try to get it down to 1.4 or lower. if you cant get 4ghz on 1.4, then don't go for 4ghz. try to unlock it to a 6 core and go for like 3.5ghz. it will have a greater gain than a quad at 4ghz. i would do this all in the bios, just because i'm not into the overclocking software. i feel that if you do it in the bios, you wont have as much of a problem. get your chip at the lowest voltage stable. then try to unlock to 6 cores. if it doesnt work, the increase the voltage a LITTLE bit and your clock speed as well. when you find a low stable voltage at six cores, then try to increase the clock speed a little bit. i wouldnt go over 1.45 volts though. when you do all of this, post me a reply. good luck! thumb.gif

Oh sorry I forgot to mention i've unlocked it and overclocked to 3.6ghz on stock voltage. It was 6h prime stable but crashed a couple of times in skyrim. Then I lowered it to 3.5ghz and it's been stable.
Edit: I've also disabled CoolNQuiet, turbo core and c1e..

Make sure you have the latest bios installed.Generally with LLC you compensate,so set your voltage to 1.4,it should rise to 1.475 under load,etc.
