4700 in BIOS, 4400 in Windows - Page 3

post #21 of 44
You don't come to one of the more well known forums on the net and try to defend your overclock, while asking for overclocking help. Listen to these guys. They know full well what they're talking about.

Too high of a voltage results in a CPU that degrades rapidly. It's the same thing as running your car at too high of an RPM. The car probably won't overheat but it'll die faster and sooner if you maintain such. We're just trying to let you know beforehand so you don't wonder why your $1000-CPU died within 6 months.

It's only a CPU guys, relax. I'm trying to get help to understand the tricks about OC'ing. Isn't there any other voltages to play with, so the VCore can get lower? Remember that the voltage you set is the maximum it's allowed to use. I'm running 3DMark11 and it doesn't pass 1.488V. I use the BIOS only.

He clearly wants to test what it takes to turn a CPU into a piece of carbon and some molten metal, let him do it.

If you don't try, you will never succede. smile.gif
I do this because it's fun, but to learn more I need more than just negative feedback. I have understod that too high VCore degrades the CPU faster, but come on, is that all there is to OC'ing, turning up or down the VCore? The link I got was less instructive than the manual, and the manual is garbage.

And talking to others in the tread as if I weren't there "He clearly..." is a bit on the rude side, don't you think?

Don't believe any software voltage measurements, get a good multimeter and find the correct pins (you'll have to turn to someone else for that advice) and measure the REAL voltage. And don't get it above 1.45... or 1.46 if you're feeling adventurous and have another $1100 laying around lol.

Wow. I didn't even realize he was using an AI suite within Windows...

BIOS is your best friend. Don't OC on Windows platform. BIOS has tighter control and doesn't rely on the OS to operate the overclock.

I'm NOT using AI, I just took a snap shot off it to show the voltages. Read the posts before you write please.

It doesn't matter. AI Tuners can still tack itself on to the Overclock and mess with settings, as it tries to override and/or mix settings automatically (from my experience at least).

We are just trying to help. All friends here. biggrin.gif

Uninstall AI Tuner just to be sure and use CPU-Z to screencap for us. And reduce to 1.4 or so. 1.5V is still hefty.

I need 1.46'ish for 4.5, thats why I was hoping there were other voltages to play with. I prefere using the ROG-utility to monitor the voltages, should I uninstall that too?

Nah, just the Auto Tuner. I really do suggest CPU-Z though. Very accurate sensors and clock gauge. But the choice is yours. biggrin.gif

1.46 for 4.5 is just so high is the only thing. Should be about mid 1.35 or 1.4....
