LLC question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I know my cpu needs 1.504v in windows to be stable at 4ghz. My motherboard though, (ga-970a-ud3) only has two llc options, either extreme or regular, and I can only adjust voltage in increments of 0.025.

Basically, my options to be stable are:
1.5v in bios with regular llc, which gives me 1.504v on 100% loads and 1.536-1.556v during things like gaming (which seems too high).
And 1.475v in bios with extreme llc, which gives me 1.556v on 100% loads (which again seems too high, but I think it never goes up there unless I do something like prime95) and 1.520-1.536v during things like gaming.

If I lower my vcore by one increment on any of those settings, it will not be stable anymore (because my vcore will then sometimes drop to 1.488v, which is just under stable range). So my question is, which setting would be better for me to use?

What multiplier are you using to get to 4ghz? Using the highest multi with the lowest fsb often stabilize the chip with lower volts.

In my sig, 200x20. I got a leaky chip redface.gif

Hehe. yes you do. That's a lot of voltage for 4Ghz.
