What LLC are you using and you could try a negative offset if after tweaking the LLC still doesn't work.

I'm using ultra high. Will try decreasing it by one and see what happens.

yeah you're right, i'm going to read up on offset. hopefully i won't need to mess with it too much.

currently run 4.5 at 1.22

Full pic

only thing, in asus turbo evo, shows bclk at -65, and when try to set to 100, and apply, jumps back to -65. gonna boot bios in min, but must be a glitch cause wouldnt this cause some serious issues?

When changing LLC, the voltage changes as well so be prepared to finding the voltage you needed before. So going from ultra high to high would probably result more + offset and less - offset.

I only overclock using the BIOS and I doubt it will cause any problems. It's probably just a glitch as you said.

so after changing the LLC to high and fiddling with the offset, i have had prime running for 4 hours and the voltage usually goes between 1.160 to 1.177; my high temps are 66-70, but usually they are running between 58-62.

are those good temps for that voltage? is this voltage too high for my mild 4.2 ghz overclock? i'm really just meticulously nitpicking at this point.

In my experience the temps reach their highest around an hour in so i think this is as high as they will go.

I believe that is average. Don't fret too much because those temps are actually pretty good. I can be running at stock and found out that my temps will always go to 70Cs. I hate it but I gotta deal with it. I'm still thinking whether or not to delid.

Hey Guys,

so i've managed to get a stable 4.4ghz @ 1.216-1.224 on my 3570k (likes to jump in prime depending on the size of the fft it is testing), after 10 or so hours of prime blend testing (v27.7)

after reading some of the settings on the first post, i was wondering if having CPU Power Phase Control set to extreme and CPU Current Capacity at 140% was important?

Right now, my CPU Power Phase Control is set to auto, and my current capacity is at 100%, pretty much left it default and didnt touch it. Would it be worth setting to extreme and 140% capacity or am i alright leaving it as is. I'm mostly asking because i have no idea how these settings effect overclocks and wasn't sure if i should go back and adjust these settings and have another round of prime testing.

Bios settings:
vcore: offset (-0.040) which equals out to 1.216-1.224v on full load
LLC: Ultra High (75%)
CPU PLL: 1.65v (may try lowering further)
Max load temps after 10hour blend test: 77c @ 32c ambient (my room sucks lol)

Specs:
i5 3570k
Asus Sabertooth z77
NH-D14 cpu cooler
8GB G.Skill sniper 1600mhz @ 1.5v

Thanks for any assistance guys!

Keep LLC at Ultra High and change Capacity to 140%. As far as I'm aware, the CPU Current Capacity is how much power is being regulated to your CPU and sometimes 100% will not be a full 100% of power and will cause power instability.

Alright, i've set that to 140%, this shouldn't cause any harmful effects such as voltage spiking or increased temperatures though right? As for the CPU Power Phase Control settings, should this be changed or am i alright leaving it on auto. I didn't think these settings would be a hugely important, mostly because after reading sin's guide, it mostly just said the only voltage settings i'd be touching were vcore and CPU PLL voltage.

I didn't see any difference in temperature or voltage readings when default or changed. CPU Power Phase Control should be changed to Extreme. Look at the pictures above and input the thing associated with them other than the voltage, PLL, and ratio. That way you can make your own OC without having a doubt that you put in every other setting correctly.

Hey,

with evo turbo, i play around with voltages/core speeds in the 4.5-4.7 range. I always choose group tuning when i change clock speed. is this the right way? in bios i would change all four to the multiplier, but just want to make sure same goes with evo. thanks
