Not sure about my overclock. (i5 3570k)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Built my computer last week:

i5 3570k CPU
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H Motherboard
2x8gb DDR3 1600mhz (10-10-10-27 XMP) Corsair Vengeance LP RAM
Hyper 212 EVO
Corsair TX750 PSU
Crucial M4 128gb SSD
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB HDD
HAF 932

Also flashed my BIOS to f16 with qFlash.

So, here's my 1st world problem..

I have reached a stable overclock of 4.4ghz at a VCORE of 1.335v, this seems like an extremely high voltage COMPARED to others (I know every chip is different..), did I get a below average factory chip? my VID is 1.3260 v.
Quote:
CPU Frequency: 44
Internal PLL Overvoltage: Disabled
Intel Turbo boost: Disabled
C1E: Enabled
C3/C6 states: Disabled
EIST: Enabled

vCore: 1.335v
PLL: 1.750v

PWM Phase control: Extreme
Load Line Calibration: Ultra High
vCore Response: Fast

Extreme Memory Profile: Profile 1 (10-10-10-27 1600mhz)

What I would like to know is:

  • How would I turn my fixed voltage overclock into an offset voltage overclock so It's not running at 1.335v at all times.
  • Is my Load Line Calibration setting correct? How does this affect the way my voltage changes, could this be why my voltage is so high?
  • My PLL is set to 1.750v, It was 1.800v and I changed it as per a forum post just to see the difference and I could not see one, so what does it do?
  • With 1.330v vCore I get WHEA errors whilst playing FSX, does this indicate an unstable overclock due to not enough voltage or could this be a problem with the CPU or any other hardware?
  • my RAM Command rate says 2T in CPU-Z, I have two sticks running in dual channel mode (Slot 1 and 3 I believe), is that correct?

Thanks.

Thats about the same VID as my 3770k, i got a "bad" one too rolleyes.gif Change your CPU Voltage to offset, and start with +.010. Boot into windows, check cpu-z under load. If your load Vcore is 1.335, you're good. If not, reset, back to bios, and adjust it according to how far off you are. Yes, 1.330 was unstable, but might be stable at offset voltage. The rest of your settings look good to me. thumb.gif

Got a BSOD at 1.340vcore whilst running a Prime95 Blend test @ 4.4ghz

Why did I have to get a crappy chip :thumbsdown:

Will try what you said.

EDIT:

Just a nice screenshot of my event logger mad.gif
