OP, have you verified that the pump is running full speed (plugged into a molex plug is best, or make sure the fan header is running at 100%). What kind of fan/fan speed are you using? Have you tried reseating the cooler? I believe with that board you have to use the Dynamic Voltage to adjust the Vcore. There's a thread about overclocking with that board here somewhere.

I have reseated the cooler, however I'm unsure about the pump plug. The fan speed is on 100%, gpu fan speed is dynamic.

I'm really concerned with the voltage being used, as clearly my vCore is in the right range for 4.5ghz overclocking, yet i'm a little paranoid on the stability.

Edit: Fans are basic 120mm enermax fans.

If you are using a molex connector, your should be a full speed. If you are using a mobo fan header you can check your BIOS and see what speed that header is reporting.

Are you using the enermax fans in a push / pull config? How are they being powered?

Are you exhausting or intaking on the rad fans?

Enermax 120mm fans are connected to the liquid cooling radiator, being powered from the PSU.
One fan pushes the air through the radiator, as the other fan pushes it out the back of the case.

Okay... so you are exhausting through the rad.

This may explain why your temps are a tad high. You pushing warm air through an already hot rad. smile.gif

Fan <<< rad <<< fan <<< case (exhaust)

As a trial, see if your can reverse the air flow so you have cool air being pushed through the rad (swap the fan around)

Fan>> rad >> Fan>> case (intake)

I have just got done reseating the fans to the system you mentioned.

I will post back with results tomorrow, as I'm too tired to think straight at the moment.

Yeah, its a bit like that tongue.gif

Have a good sleep.

I run just that with 1850's typhoons on h100 and currently all cores under 60 at 100% 24/7 at 4.6ghz 1.28V, unless ambients rise, then delta rises

i see xmp is turned off in settings, might as well turn it on, always good for OC'ing.

Other Thoughts: THIS BOARD DOES OVERCLOCK. certain people on here have not spent time to take a second look at their bios. the people saying that you cant alter the vCore are WRONG. i currently am using this board with my 2500k overclocked to 4.7 with a vcore of 1.4. THERE IS LITERAL NO VCORE OPTION. but what we have is DYNAMIC VCORE in voltage control. you pick increments of voltage to add or subtract from your vcore. simply bump your multiplier up one at a time while stress testing in between. eventually stock voltage wont do it for you any more this is where you bump up your DYNAMIC VCORE. then continue to overclock. it's really not that difficult and people who are claiming that you can't change core voltage clearly didn't read their manual nor look on the internet for help. you're welcome.

this looks most promising above

Vcore = 1.320 (My BIOS does not let me manually set the Vcore, it seems that as I raise the multiplier the CPU voltage increases accordingly. Under default settings I noticed the Vcore to be at 1.296V, so I tried to lower the 1.320V, closer to 1.296V via the DVID, hence the -0.030V. This seemed to lower the temps a bit, as before some of my highs were 78-79c.

seems alot of people having same issue. Looks like should set DVID to manual, and use as you would with vcore offset

At the moment, I have LLC on Level 1 and that's all I have changed. Currently my vCore is stated to be at 1.344v on the BiOS.
What I really want to have happen is to simply turn LLC off, and crank up the DVID as this is what is suppose to be done, no?
Or should LLC be turned on Level 1 due to 4.5ghz being overclocked?

What should my vCore be at for a stable 4.5ghz overclock?

I understand these numbers fluctuate depending on how each chip is made, though a general rule of thumb is always good to go by.
I will be picking up some new thermal paste today in order to help with the newly configured fan system as mentioned above.

Mine stays at about 36c idle and gets up to about 44c when i'm gaming. Only took 1.26 vcore too biggrin.gif You may want to fiddle with your settings some more to get a better vcore and less temps. New cooler would be advised too.

a vCore of 1.344 shouldn't make your chip run that hot. Mine is clocked (and has been the last 6 months) at 4.5GHz with 1.328v according to CPU-z, thinks it's at about 1.35v in BIOS and it never exceeds 65c even after hours of 100% load during rendering.

When i was finding my stable clock i noticed as soon as i enabled LLC, it needed more vCore to be stable, don't know why, but when i'm getting closer to 5GHz, LLC helps A LOT.

Just googled a bit on your board and it seems, just like you say, that the only way to change vCore is by changing the Dynamic vCore, DVID. So i would try fiddling around with that for a while, with the LLC turned off.
