Help with my 3770k overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
nice! ok gonna give it a go in a few mins...

this is all the settings I need to change right? biggrin.gif

Should I start the voltage at like 1.2 or even higher?

and CPU current capability 140% in red thats normal right?

Thanks Aaranu, you've been a huge help..

Also I notice his settings are on XMP mode and his ram is set to run at 1600mhz while mine is supposed to be 1333.

Does that change anything in terms of what I put in the bios settings?

Under XMP, it's set to its "optimal" settings so as far as ram timings and voltages you should be good to go, unless you plan on overclocking the ram too.

As for cpu voltages I also originally had x45 multplier with 1.22 Volts, which seems like a good starting point before dropping lower. Temps are very manageable below 1.3 Volts from what I experienced. Auto-tune had my voltage up to 1.4 which made me scream at my mobo.

Thanks Aaranu, I was afraid leaving many settings on Auto might affect it. So even when my cpu voltage is manually set, LLC still has effect?

I really wanted to do Offset mode, for the lower idle voltage but LLC really confused me. If I raise LLC to Ultra High, at light loads my voltage soars way beyond the necessary voltage for maximum load. This makes a positive offset very discouraging, yet on a negative offset the maximum load voltage may drop below necessary voltage. Then Extreme puts quite an overvoltage which isn't what I need.

I guess 1.9 1.19 volt isn't bad, so if I can't figure out the offset I really shouldn't mess with it.

-Edit-
1.9 volt? Lol.

wow, so somewhat of a bad experience

I copied the settings exactly (other than XMP mode for some reason my bios only shows auto or manual no xmp mode)

and set the voltage to 1.22... the comp got to windows welcome screen then blue screened! mad.gif

wasn't sure what to do so i set it up to 1.25 and now Im in windows but obviously pretty nervous about how stable this is...

thoughts?

You can't just copy somebody else's settings and expect it to work, even if all of your hardware was exactly the same.. The guy who gave you all those settings gave you a nice starting point, something to work off of.. but a blue screen means something is unstable.

You should really thoroughly read and follow some of the guides (which are found all over overclock.net if you look/search for them) and then go from there. Overclocking isn't difficult so long as you go step by step and read directions.

Don't expect somebody else's settings to just work for you.

Blue screen during boot after an OC means something is unstable. Usually this is because something needs more voltage. Adding more voltage adds more heat, so watch your temps. One of the overclocking guides found on this site will be able to tell you the max safe limits for temps and voltages on your chip.

Good luck thumb.gif

Blue screens happen when overclocking, just means it isn't stable. You may find that it still isn't stable at 1.25 when you start stress testing.

I'm sorry to hear that 72monkey, and about my settings not being able to transfer like that! I'll be sure to remember that next time.

np not ur fault at all Inter!

hope I can get something stable running
post #19 of 24
I hope you can too! Good luck on your OC!

I've lurked a little bit here on stock speeds before going up to 4.5 GHz, though definitely think I got lucky. I did not do such meticulous methods as undervolting at stock speeds to find ground zero and basically chart and extrapolate approximate voltages for the next multiplier headscratch.gif
