The only voltage settings I have changed in my bios is cpu, dram, and cpu/nb. I've heard that I should set some of the other voltages and not leave them to auto. Problem is I don't know what volts to set them at. Like NB, etc. Can someone help me here?
I stress test with: IBT AVX maximum 20 pass, OCCT Large Data set 2hours and them Prime95.
What test should I run Prime95 for stability: small, large or blend? I will just test overnight.
small stresses cpu more blend does cpu and ram stability and overall stability, small just rules out cpu if it passes small but not blend.
try cpu/nb at 1.25, nb at 1.2 rest leave alone/ where is. Thats what im at runs good tweak from there. Lowering v on cpu/nb lowers ram ability to overclock so find a sweet spot. just the lower the cpu/nb the better cpu core temps you'll get, id just leave nb at stock clock with ht link.
Then change vcore accordingly/dram v
