Please never use auto like that. If you really have a golden chip of sorts it could have taken the vcore to 1.95vcore area like I did my chip and possibly shortened its lifespan. Be careful if you are just doing screenies for validation go to and don't pass 1.6 vcore. If benching don't pass 1.5vcore. If you wanna know more about getting overclocking right I can help you out.

So you're saying the auto tuning isn't safe? Wow you'd think they would put in a limit for super high voltage (follow intel spec or something). However, I don't think it was giving a true reading, because once it was done CPUz was only reading 41x multi. Also, my temps never went above 45C.

Yes never use auto. The computer/mobo can sometimes get a hickup and just say screw it and keep upping the vcore until pop and your chips dead. So always use manual yourself to find the OCs it takes time but its well worth it. I spent 4 hours finding my absolute lowest vcores for 4.0 to 5.0 Ghz ranging in temps of 50s to 105C Tested it all with 10 runs standard of IBT.

If you have any questions about manual OCing ask swag or myself. But what mobo you got?

it seems my 3570K is not the low voltage runner I thought it was OR, I need a better motherboard,
the P8Z68-M Pro is a solid board but me thinks I want a Maximus Gene..
biggrin.gif

just to get 4.4GHz stable on this board is/was a challenge.

I have heard that Z68 boards generally needed more voltage on Ivy because they are not optimized for it, but that's just what I have read around the net. Of course, you could just have a bad chip. Althugh after 4.5GHz or so the voltage requirements seem to require the same voltage as sandy.

seems to be true mate, I had to find out for myself..

my next purchase..

@ 4.2GHz I ended up around 1.224V for stability and for 4.4GHz I had to enable LLC and then up the voltage from a negative offset.
@ 4.4GHz I was around 1.256V and might still need a little more.

Asus cheaper boards SUCK for the money...Gigabyte is my go to brand for cheaper boards. They keep the same top notch vrm quality and 10 layers of copper pcb.
Asrock has crappy vrm, except for the AWESOME OC Formula which is my favorite alternative to the MVG if you want an ATX board.

Actually, the only ASRock with bad VRM is the Extreme4. Even then it's not bad, just dated. All other models of ASRock use good VRMs and will push high volts all day long.
