Lower Benchmark Score After OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Since I've OC'ed my processor to 3.9Ghz I've noticed a lower CPU and overall score when benchmarking with PassMark. After setting my processor settings back to default, I was getting the same score range as I did before I OC'ed my processor. Any ideas on what could be causing this? Would it have something to do with the fact I have not worked on upping the NB and HT speeds yet? Could it be a bottleneck between my CPU and graphics card? Help appreciated.

Thermal throttle maybe (vrm or cpu)

I was worried about some throttling going on. Highest temp I saw while stress testing was 58*, a bit too high for my liking. Debating on pulling the OC back a bit, hopefully getting one of the Corsair H-series coolers soon down the road.

58C ( core temps) it`s Ok !

CPU CORE VOLTAGE ?

CPU/ NORTH VOLTAGE ?

HT SPEED ?

NORTH SPEED ?

LLC ?

MEM SPEED ?

I wouldn't really consider 58*C okay in my book, for air cooling that is, considering the specified max is 62*C.


CPU Core Voltage was set to around 1.45 (don't remember exactly, will double check saved settings in a bit) in BIOS, nearly hitting 1.5 under load.
CPU NB Voltage was default, 1.1
HT/NB speeds all default
LLC disabled as it acts weird on this board (With enabled there is drop under load, disabled there is higher vcore under load)
Mem speed is at 1333 although it's meant to run at 1600, I was told it would not utilize the speed unless I increased the NB speed.
