is it wierd that i can run my 3570k @ 4.4ghz @ 1.114v? - Page 4

Ok so now I'm confused because HWiNFO64 is showing the voltage to be 1.391v while running prime95 right now and I'm pretty sure my stock voltage is 1.1v and I added an additional .018v in the bios so why is there an extra .11v floating around somewhere??

I like to use coretemp and realtemp to monitor my temps with. I personaly dont care about the infamous 12 hour standard of prime95. If I get no errors in two hours, I know that no game is ever going to bluescreen my PC. I overclock for practiaclity. I'm not a performance junkie. Nothing against those who are. If thats your thing, more power to you. I like to find a moderate stable overclock and then I just go with it. I may decide to push my i5 to the limit in a few years when I will need the extra performance to keep up with the games of the time. But for now, I'm sticking with my 4.3 because its more than enough horse power for current games.

So, its up to you to decide wether your hobby is gaming or its overclocking. Or maybe its both? Nothing wrong with that. wink.gif

24 hours custom torture test Prime95 with just the memory used changed to 90% of available ram with zero stopped workers, instability, or Event Viewer occurrences. That will provide you reasonable assurances of stability. Folding for months at a time without issues is a better test however.

Don't let any core temp go over 95c while testing, but keeping it under 90c is better.

To find out what your max temps will be, just run a custom torture test in Prime95, change the memory to 90% of your available ram, then change both min and max FFT to 8. Run that for 15 minutes and watch your core temps. Running a long Prime95 test will usually only add one or two degrees to the max you saw. That way you don't have to stare at the computer.

Whats your multiplier set at while your getting the 1.391v? Are you manually setting a voltage or are you using an XMP profile?

You need to follow a guide if you don't know what you are doing. Randomly changing BIOS to attempt an overclock is not the best way to go.

Ok so I shut off my computer immediately when I seen that (I got scared!!) and there was an auto overclock feature set to 4.4ghz (IDK HOW???) and my multiplier was set to 44. I almost died when I seen that. So I turned off the auto overclock feature, set my additional turbo boost voltage to auto and right now I am running prime95 and my temps arent going over 50c. A HELL of a lot cooler than before!!! Definetly saving that BIOS profile right now!!!! My voltage is 1.286 max.

Asrock, i freakin I tought so, everytime i see these kinds of threads it's always asrock. So before i even opened this thread i already guessed that this is asrock and i am correct. i have a hunch that there is something going on with these asrock boards.

What's your LLC?

Btw my 3570k is overclocked to 4.5ghz using 1.18v, and yeah asrock.

Same thing I thought too when I ran into this thread. It seems that the extreme4 has iffy voltage readings for the cpu. This was confirmed by other members on OCN by using a multimeter to test. I thought I had a golden chip when I reached 4.5GHz @ 1.130 but as it turns out the motherboard's readings are off.
