MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 225

post #2241 of 3633
I thought I'd share my overclocking experience with my below-average 3570k, and see if you guys have any comments or suggestions. I have a couple overclocking profiles, one for turbo 4.4GHz to keep all the power-saving features and another for a locked 4.5GHz, since I can't keep a stable 4.5 turbo without getting WHEA errors in the event viewer. Max vCore for 4.4GHz turbo is 1.224v, with 62.5% CPU Core vDroop Offset Control, Digital Compensation set to High, and CPU Core OCP Expander set to Enhanced. What frustrates me is that it takes another .07v to get 4.5GHz stable at 1.295v set in BIOS, CPU-Z reading 1.28v under load with max temps of 76C with a Corsair H100. Makes me jealous of those who can get to the same speed with 1.17v frown.gif Screenshot below.

It depends on your chip, have u tried changing the vdroop settings to determine the voltage drop? 1.295V is the vcore with least voltage drop?

Well with my fixed 4.5GHz I have vDroop Offset Control on auto. In my experience, with a fixed voltage, anything other than auto or 100% allows the voltage to drop too low where I get WHEA Errors in event viewer. 4.5GHz at 1.29v still gave me a couple errors, but passes 12 hours of Prime 95. 1.295v eliminated all errors at 12 hours, so I'll consider that stable.

I have a 660 MSI Twin Frozr III. Is it ok to use the gpu overclock settings in the bios to over clock the gpu?

No, the gpu settings in the bios are for the integrated gpu (in the cpu), not a discreet gpu. Still have to OC the gtx 660 in windows.

Sir you are getting very bad temps for a h100 with a over clocked i5 3570k. I get in the mid 70s with a over clock of 4.7ghz and core of 1.38v. You might consider getting more air flow in your case or replacing the thermal compound before you continue over clocking it further. Highest temp for me is 80 with prime. I used to run 4.4 GHz and u would get 60s with prime on 1.26v.

Are you delidded? From my research, my temps with 4.5GHz @ 1.3v are what I've seen as average. Peak of 76C, averaging mid-high 60s.
