Hi peeps,

This is my problem, well it may not be a problem which is why I am here. Self confessed novice at overclocking.

Running latest stock bios, 2600k. I want to take advantage of the C1E abilities of the motherboard so I have read through post after post and adjusted the bios accordingly. Now when I run OCCT, Prime or IntelburnTest the CPU shoots up to 4423 is what I expected but then it drops off to 3.8 - 4.0 and hovers around those figures. I thought stress tests would push it to the maximum so I could make sure my CPU is stable when pushed. Is there something I am missing?

Reset Bios to default settings
CPU ratio on auto
Mem Profile XMP
Eist/Intel Turbo and Enhanced Turbo all enabled
C1E support enabled
All Core Ratio Limits set at 44

CPU Core Vdroop set at 75%

all other settings at stock

Thanks for any help in advance :-)

Thank you smile.gif I'm enjoying it for sure, I had something really unlucky with overclocking, I somehow burn out my motherboard on my X79 build and I wasn't 100% sure if it was just the motherboard which was a rampage iv formula and my 3930k, I wasn't sure if my CPU had any problem so i sold away my left over parts and got myself a 3770k n the mpower which so far not too disappointing even tho, losing 2 cores wont hurt too much anyways for me tongue.gif My old system was quite overkill to be honest lol tongue.gif

I'd like to see the same thing. Maybe I will team up with my buddy and hit the same frequencies and do some benchmarks and see where they stand. I'm interested to know. I'm sure there's comparisons out there already though.

what do you mean "then it drops to 3.8 -4.0 and hovers around those figures"? you mean downclocks while testing?

The power of the 3770K is really going to depend on what you're doing with your computer. In gaming you shouldn't see any if at all differences, but in programs that support more than 4 threads the 3770K will shine. Examples of this are video editing, compression, encoding, rendering etc. Also it may just be the placebo effect but I notice that my programs and opening stuff in Windows is a little faster...or rather my windows experience is "snappier" like I said there shouldn't be a difference with those functions in windows but thats just my opinion. Also I believe 3770K are binned better, but that can also be false because when it really comes down to it...its just luck. I got a much better 3770K than my 3570K when it comes to overclocking and im quite happy with it. Me and Ride can do some benchmarks I suppose at both 4.5Ghz but benchmarks are synthetic and in pure numbers the 3770K will most likely win if not all most of them.

If I recall correctly someone else was having the same problem...I think they ended up finding out it was the "Long Duration Power Limit" under Intel C-State -> Package C State Limit or one/some of the settings under that particular menu. It adjusts the TDP of the chip for long/short duration. If its set lower then the TDP will limit the power to the chip making it unable to sustain higher clocks. I don't recall the numbers at all and i'd probably be careful with those settings as well.

On a side note I used to run 4.2Ghz and it would downclock to 1.6ghz with Voltage going to about 0.9 on idle and up to 1.2v(ish) under load without having to mess with those settings at all. All I did was put core voltage to auto, and CPU ratio on the top of the "OC Settings" page to 42. I also left Vdroop to auto and pretty much everything else CPU related to auto.

I just looked over the manual and make sure that the "Overspeed Protection" is DISABLED as well...this is what the manual says:

OverSpeed Protection
Monitors current CPU draw as well as power consumption; if it exceeds a certain
level, the processor automatically reduces its clock speed. For overclocking, it is
recommended this feature is disabled.

First, thanks for the reply. That's exactly what's happening. It may be working as intended I just wanted to run it by the more experienced members. I would like to make use of the power saving features but still have the grunt there when needed.
