Mine is not that good, maybe cause it's a C1 one.
I'm running at 4.6Ghz with 1.386v to 1.4v peak while at 4.8Ghz it goes from 1.448 to 1.464 with those settings:
46 = vcore offset +0.020, CPU LLC medium, CPU CC 140%.
48 = vcore offset +0.100, CPU LLC medium, CPU CC 170%.
If I reduce vcore offset to 0.090 or CPU CC to 160% I BSOD "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval." by testing with Prime 95 small FFT.
Also the temp are going over 80°c but my H100i is running with 2xSP120 that need to be used with resistance wire to regulate the fan speed, so 7v and 1600rpm max. Yet, it's good enough for BF3 at 4.6Ghz since it doesn't go higher than 71°c, oh and 76°c in Crysis 3.
I really want Corsair to update firmware and software! Yeah I was forced to downgrade from RSTe v22.214.171.1249 to RSTe v3.0.3011 (that mean no S.M.A.R.T reading atm) to not get a BSOD every 15 minutes as well lol.
I think I will need to go to 1.52+ vcore for 5Ghz, but I won't try untill the SLI lightning are watercooled, that will reduce the overall temp in the computer case plus putting one of the 120mm fan I have in spare to the CPU VRM. I will probably remove the 7v wire on the h100i fans and put the original ones on pull, just for the bench. Edited by Kimir - 2/6/13 at 5:38pm
