i7-2700k OC 4.5GHz help - Page 2

post #11 of 71
Those motherboard temps are notoriously unreliable, and you have no way of knowing where or what they are measuring (if anything). The only temps you need to worry about are the actual core temperatures.
post #12 of 71
the only thing i have read about motherboard temps is this : it is the temperature in the case near the upper right corner of the motherboard. i have never heard or read otherwise.
if anyone can show me different, i would love to see. it would be great to know what motherboards actually relay a temp for the motherboard and what it is monitoring.

Just got another warning from AI Suite. Again, I was stress testing and just came back. This time, the warning was about the +3.3V. Unfortunately, I couldn't read the message. Opened it up, and this is what I saw:



What could be / what could possibly have been the problem here, with the +3.3V? I don't even know what this is. But it is starting to scare me, with all these warnings. My OC settings are, with your help:
Multiplier: 45x
LLC: High
Offset mode: +.01 (vcore @ ~1.32-1.33 @ full load)
Everything else left on auto/default

Haven't stress tested these settings enough yet, but so far they seem stable to me.

Easy solution - uninstall AI Suite and use one of the many free programs to monitor your system. Really, half the time those motherboard sensor reports aren't even connected to anything - you'll see them reporting crazy temps like -120C as often as anything else. The only thing on the motherboard that even gets hot any longer are the VRMs, and your voltage certainly isn't going to be stressing them out of spec.

So you think that I shouldn't care about the +3.3v warning? Maybe I'm just beeing scared for nothing, but this is my first build and my first OC.

Just think it's a little strange that I haven't seen any of these warnings before, and this rig is almost 1 year old. Have had the CPU OC'ed to 4.5GHz before, but that was with manual vcore, and I had every power saving features off. Seeked help here to get some advice on how to do it with offset voltage.

Thanks for your replies - really appreciate it smile.gif

ASUS Suite is notorious for giving incorrect voltage and temperature readings. My Sabertooth used to tell me my board was going sub-zero all the time.

No, I wouldn't worry about it. The voltages look fine in that screenshot and like Mr357 said, they are often unreliable anyway. I don't know if 3.3 is even used by anything any longer.

i know with asus p67, those boards like llc of high not ultra high with offset. i dont know about z68.
i also used 1.1v for vccio with 2 dimms of ram and i used .010v or .015v less vcore and was still stable. but i also put my 1.5v ram at 1.525v.
enigma, if your vcore 'doesnt go as high under partial load' the llc setting is too high. you dont want vrise. you want vcore to stay the same or drop without dropping so far as too cause a bsod 101 or 124. you need a lower llc setting and more vcore. vrise will heat up the vrm's. that isnt good.
my settings:
high llc with +.005v offset is better than ultra high or extreme llc with -.025v offset.
*EDIT*
continuing on that thought, a higher llc causes a lower idle voltage and that can lead to idle and random bsod, like when youre under partial load.

I use the Asus Suite for the easy bios updates and the fan profiler. I cant figure out how to use Speedfan.

i would rather flash with ez flash2. i dont have to worry about windows corrupting a bios install. its a good idea for you i guess if youre afraid to update totally by yourself. i used to use speedfan with my old amd. i havent had any luck even with speedfan being updated. it just doesnt control the fan speeds. it doesnt bother me at all. i just set a profile in bios and my fans are fine.

Hmmm.. Looks like it's not 100% stable after all. It feels like I'm getting lower FPS with the 4.5GHz OC than with the default Optimal mode on my motherboard (@4.4GHz)
Any ideas? Is increasing the vcore the only thing I can do?
