3570k/212 evo high temps with low OC - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Thread Starter 
I used this guide here. http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclocking-guide-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-asrock-edition

It tells me to leave them enabled. Can you cite your source that would disagree. I appreciate the help but I'd like to have a look before I deviate too far from the guide I'm using now. I know that obviously what I'm using now isn't working but I'm cautious.

I ran prime95 at Load Line Calibration level 2 and 3 and 2 gives me slightly lower temps. This is at a 4ghz OC when prime95 is running my vcore is at 1.336

I don't have evidence, just experience with ASUS and Gigabyte boards at least. It is better to manually set voltage instead of use offset. Any OCN member will tell you that. I'm just not understanding the CPU-Z voltages you are getting under full load. Those voltages aren't high at all. Also, I have always just disabled Speedstep as it has always kept my idle clocks stable.

Edit: 1.336? What? Way too high! See, offset automatically does that. Try this: go to manual, set it to 1.2 and keep decreasing by .05V until Prime95 crashes or you can't boot.

Bro, 1.336 is way too high. That is usually the standard the boards set it on auto.

Gotcha, doing that now. Will report back.

Okay, cool. Sorry if I have been a little rapid. Keep SpeedStep and Turbo on, but do not use that Offset. Do the manual voltage as I said. You should be fine. thumb.gif

I was able to disable the speedstep but not the turbo boost as well as change it from offset to fixed. I went ahead and only changed it from offset to fixed and left the speedstep and turbo boost on for now. Now under load my vcore is 1.184 and my temps are much lower. in the 60's. Currently I'm at a multiplier of 40 should I increase that right now before I tweak the voltage or leave it?

Nice to hear the improvement. On my 3770k/Hyper 212 Evo setup, I have 4.5Ghz only getting up to 76C under Prime95. I say go for it! The 212 Evo is a nice cooler and can absorb some real heat. Just keep upping the voltage as you go. Also, the higher you go, adjust Load Line Calibration accordingly as well. biggrin.gif

As I said before, I am really sorry for being all over the place. I haven't used a BIOS like that in a while, as I have the Gigabyte 3D Bios (really different layout). Hope I was of some assistance. redface.gif

Remount the heatsink when you get time. Never spread your thermal paste. Not sure who thought of that idea in the first place but it's horrible.

Just squeeze a small rice grain size at most and mount it straight down.

Will do.

I set my multiplier to 42 and my voltage to 1.250 volts and it passes the stress test with good temps. At 1.245 volts it fails. The cpu-z at both voltages reports 1.224 volts under load. Is this voltage too high?
