Looking for help with setting my clock and voltages [i7 860 CPU]

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello sweet community!

Im looking for help/advice on setting up my system optimaly with a stock cooler.

I got two options right now:

1) Everything on auto + TURBO ON = this is confusing... Even though temps are normal and the CPU is overclocking itself dynamicaly it does not pass OCCT wich means its not stable but then again its a dynamic overclock and clock is being set automaticaly so no wonder but the auto option gives too much volts from what I read here and there.

2) Option Im running right now is: 133x21 and fixed voltages: 1.1v CPU, 1.1v IMC, 1.5v DRAM, 1.8v PLL, 1.05v PCH. This always pass OCCT and gives me temps of 36-42 when IDLE and under 75 after 1H 30M of OCCT. TURBO IS OFF.



Main concerns and question:

- How to set my system optimaly using stock cooler so I can be stable and cooler with the temps then on auto ?
- Is there a small and nice OC possible ?


Few additional side-questions:

- How much am I loosing when I turn the turbo OFF ?
- Is my CPU limiting the GPU or vice versa (Im playing with my card's CORE wich is 950 at the moment)




Here is the OC I made myself and its more or less the same as if I run 2.80 with turbo becase 3dmark11 score was similar wich I was suprised but take a look at the temps (I know this is nothing fancy but bare in mind I have stock cooler):

Please dont give me hints like: buy a better cooler. Cant afford anything right now so I have to work with what I have and what I have needs to be optimized and I dont know how thats why I ask you dear OCN Community, please help me out smile.gif

Best regards ~Seban.

Its not dead. Its just lynnfield was 3 generations ago. I had a 760 and i can't remember the settings even. Best advice is to google a good lynnfield overclock guide.

Please define what good means and we are not necessairly talking about OC Im just in need of expert opinion and based on that we will decide if we go for OC on a stock cooling.
I have great sentiment and respect for this forum and community and Im suprised nobody with that knowledge is around anymore. And even more suprised that someobody from around here recomands me google... That is just sad...

Please dont give me hints like: buy a better cooler. Cant afford anything right now so I have to work with what I have and what I have needs to be optimized and I dont know how thats why I ask you dear OCN Community, please help me out smile.gif
Best regards ~Seban.

1) If you left everything on stock settings and your CPU can't pass or crash that means it is defective or there is another problem somewhere. Because Turbo Boost clocks are part of the stock settings, so the CPU shouldn't have problems maintaining those speeds.
2) No way to OC the Lynnfield CPUs with the stock cooler, it is too tiny and they run pretty hot especially the i7s (due to HT). My i7 870 used to get 92 *C when running IBT with the stock cooler. Now with the Coolermaster V6GT I get 54 *C on stock settings.
If you want a decent OC on the CPU, you will need a decent aftermarket cooler and they are not that expensive these days.
Also your CPU with turbo enabled it will turbo to 3077 MHz in multi-threaded applications or 3460 MHz with single threaded loads.
Thats a good ~8% increase in multi-threaded applications and ~20% in single threaded (only) loads.
