What voltage to go by?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to overclock my 2600K atm, I have it set to 1.260V in bios with Load Line Calibration at 4.4Ghz. CPU-Z reports the voltage as 1.272V. Which one would be more accurate?

You mean by accurate, the bios voltage vs. the software voltage (CPU-Z). Well, if you don't have a digital multimeter to really see the real value of voltage, you should trust what the bios says.

And regarding the voltage, you test the CPU in some LinX, Prime95, Intel Burn Test, for at least 2 hours ?? If not test it, if it freezes, increase the voltage. But i think the voltage is ok for that OC, maybe a little more voltage you should increase just to be sure, you will never experience a very rare freeze or bluescreen, when you are using the PC.
