In need of help overclocking a 3770K with H100i - Page 2

post #11 of 15
The core temps are what you want to watch (the ones in HWInfo there) - the Corsair temps are probably taken from a sensor on the motherboard. If you are putting 1.3V in the BIOS and getting 1.312V at load (as shown) then you should change the setting for Load Line Calibration from whatever it is now to High or Very High - you don't really want the voltage to go up under load, it should be going down slightly instead. As for reducing the volts, you can try stepping it down by 0.02 or so until you get in the area. So try 1.28V and then if that fails go back to 1.29V, or if it works try 1.26V, etc.

You might also consider re-mounting the cooler, with those temps it is possible that you aren't getting good contact or the thermal paste application wasn't very good. You want to make a short line in the center of the CPU and then just press the cooler down on it - you don't need to spread it out ahead of time.

Okay, I will attempt to do that and I will get back to you with my results asap.

I just used the thermal paste pre-applied to the H100i, if I were to remove the H100i from the bracket and reseat it, would I have to reapply thermal paste? Or should it be fine sense I am just taking it off to adjust and reseatting it?

If you take it off, you'd want to apply new paste. If you don't have any you could re-use it, but that's not the best result.

Alright. I purchased new Thermal Paste, should be here soon.

I did notice when I first installed the waterblock, that the backplate was lose. I did some research on it at the time, and found that many said it wasn't a problem and others said to buy rubber washers and even some completely saying it makes the H100i fail? As I check now the backplate is very snug after I installed the waterblock.

Any ideas?

Also, I did what you said, changed the setting to very high, left it at 1.3v and it still fluctuates between 1.3 and 1.312? The next setting is extreme and I don't want to touch it.

Also, when I raised the multiplier up to 46, BSOD on boot.

I've seen perfectly stable 4.6-4.7 overclocks with around 1.3 volts. Do you think this is an H100i problem? Or just got a bad chip?

It seems like a lot of chips recently have been needing closer to 1.35V for 4.5-4.6 overclocks. You can try dropping LLC down to High or even Medium and see what that does for the voltage (lower settings for LLC alowmore Vdroop and lower voltages under load - which is fine in moderaiton, you just don't want the voltage to drop so far it becomes unstable). If it is still stable with LLC at high and voltage dropping to 1.29 or something you'll get some temp reduction as well. The voltage is what ramps up the temps, so if you can lower those it'll help.
