First time overclock, need help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is my first attempt at overclocking my cpu and I would like to get some verification if im doing things right. I know I need to do longer testing but my biggest concern is why when I set my vcore in the bios to 1.35, in cpu-z under load its 1.336? I tried to match as much settings in the bios from someone with a similar oc and board so maybe some things arent right. for example vdroop offset is set to 100% in the guide so thats what i did, but i dont really know what it does in the first place. So, to start heres a screenshot after 1 hour and my system specs.

Welcome to OCN thumb.gif

Your vcore will drop depending on your motherboard and your LLC(load line calibration)settings. Best thing is to read the complete guide so you are informed and you dont mess something up. http://www.overclock.net/t/1247413/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-with-ln2-guide-at-the-end

After you read the guide feel free to ask further questions.

When the CPU is under a heavy load the current draw goes up, which causes the voltage to drop slightly. This is called Vdroop. LLC is a method of countering Vdroop by adding additional voltage when the current draw is high. As long as your system is stable at the setting you are using, you don't really need to worry about Vdroop (actually it is part of the Intel spec) - it is only if you are fighting for the last little bit of overclock that it becomes really useful. If your system is stable with 1.35 in the BIOS and 1.336 delivered, then I wouldn't worry about it.
