Yeah, I guess it isn't hurting anything leaving it as is with SpeedStep disabled. About the ThermalThrottling, if the CPU gets too hot for whatever reason, will having this enabled prevent it from shutting down to protect itself? Should I re-enable that?
i have it enabled myself, it indeed only checks the cpu's temperature and make sure it doesn't exceed 105C(downclocks afterwards)

the windows states are called S 0-4 described here

Interesting read, I never knew what a C state was. +rep

Makes sense.

One other question, my memory shows up at 800MHz in CPU-Z, is that right? It's 1600MHz memory, and it shows up at DDR3-1600 in the bios.

I am waiting on my Asrock Extreme 4 and 3570k. Look forward to trying another company out since I have always used Asus or MSI. i have heard many good things about Asrock and the price was right so I figured why not..

Do you really think software can make your LAN speed better? Just wondering...I mean..if software could really do that..won't more people develop and use it more often as a "must have"?

If it's a gimmick I'll uninstall...but if you truly feel like your speed if better..I might leave it on for a while...and how did you get riof the graph...it's ugly and annoying as hell.

well theres some changes that can be made in the registry that increases the frequency at which packets are send out/recieved. in mmo's this usually results in a big(~50-100ms) ping drop as the server doesnt have to wait as long for a confirmation. either way im not really that much of a software junkie so im sure someone else has the answer for this tongue.gif

Try it!?

Run the software, see if you can get a avg ping rate time; uninstall and test again....

Got a ASRock Z77 Fatal1ty Pro and 3770K. Just fine tuning my overclock still confused about using LLC levels.

Got it stable at 4.6ghz with LLC auto and LLC level 3 both reporting similar temps and voltages under load.
  • LLC Auto
  • 4.6ghz
  • Voltage offset +0.065v
  • Load CPUz voltage 1.224v
  • P95 Peak 71C
  • IBT Peak 79C

  • LLC Level 3
  • 4.6ghz
  • Voltage offset +0.020v
  • Load CPUz voltage 1.216v
  • P95 Peak 70C
  • IBT Peak 78C

So pretty much the same, level 3 is 1 step down on load volts and 1C cooler but not run prime for so long may yet need to nudge the volts up a notch.

Does it make any difference which settings I use?
Also why does it effect my required voltage offset so much? feels like LLC 3 just does a +.040v.

Should I be using fixed volts instead? Doesn't using the offset get me lower voltage in idle with cooler temps?

Going to have a go at level 2 now, not sure about using level 1 read something about it been bad for CPU and possible voltage spikes?

I did see a numeric drop of performance after I uninstalled after a year of usage. My LoL ping used to be 23 and it dropped to 28 average, not big differences but it's there.

It takes a while for them to shape your internet usage so I would say test it in a month.

right click on icon from the taskbar and there should be an option like "disable/enable" windows or something along the lines. I'm at work right now so I can't check it for u frown.gif

Thanks man, I'll try it for a while...I'll uninstall the rest though.

800MHz is the real clock speed and 1600MHz is the effective clock speed.
It shows you the real clock speed in CPU-Z, but the effective clock is double the real for DDR3.

The best program for something like this is TCP Optimizer, anyone interested should google it. It changes registry values automatically based on the connection speed you input. Very easy to use.

Load Line Calibration will hold your vcore at the value you have set in the bios. If you use level 1, it is supposed to stay rock solid on the value you want. Meaning it eliminates vdroop. Vdroop is a drop in voltage caused by using more voltage/generating more heat. LLC compensates for this and on these new boards it almost compensates too well.
Level 1 - Results in higher than the voltage you set.(sometimes it stays solid at the value you want)
Level 2 - Mostly stays at the voltage you want with very little fluctuation.
Level 3 - More fluctuation than level 2.
Level 4 - etc
Level 5 - etc.

This change in voltage occurs under load. This will help keep your voltage constant under load.
