Any suggestions? I can't seem to lower vcore from this point things go nuts.
I've just run p95 for a half hour- first time i was able to run it for more than a few minutes.
Not sure bout my idle temps w/ this OC- ~30 idle, 90-95 w/ prime running- I saw it bounce to 103 at one point but then it leveled out well in that 90-95 range.
Really kinda disappointing I had to take thing to 1.435 to get a 4.8 OC. Probably won't keep it this high- I was actually impressed w/ the overall daily use speeds at 4.2ghz haha and the 18-20C idle temps were nice.
BTW I have all the same settings (outside of vcore obviously) that are suggested in the 1st post here.
Some chips are much harder to overclock than others. There are Ivy chips that can do 4.8 at well under 1.3v and others that would have a problem even at 1.45v. What multiplier did you get 12+ hours stable in Prime95 before trying for 4.8 and what was the vCore? I ask because if you haven't stabilized a level below yet, you don't know if your problems are directly oc related or not.
Always know exactly what you max temps are for your cores, all the monitoring software listed in the first post will record them while you test. Please don't go over 95c max on any core while testing.
So maybe your chip just needs a little too much voltage for 4.8 with your cooling, or maybe there is something else wrong. We need a little more info. However, you are completely correct that an Ivy chip even at stock turbo settings is really fast, and there is no "need" to oc. Many people run stock, or a little lower oc in the 4.2 to 4.4 range for daily use and are perfectly happy.
