Is 1.36 vcore too much for 3930k 4.4ghz?

post #1 of 81
Thread Starter 
I'm happy at 4.4ghz but am wondering if my vcore is a little too high? Anything less than 1.36v and I get a bsod. Any settings I should change to get a lower vcore? I'm running an Asus X79 Sabertooth. This is my first Asus motherboard in years and am kind of lost in their bios. I'd like lower numbers to get my temps down. They hover around 60c and sometimes popping into the lower to mid 70's.

Try and lower your llc besides that the only thing that lowers vcore is by lowering it lol

I was hoping I could lower my vcore but raise something like vtt. I have llc set to high. Should I change to medium?

It's not too high if you have a bad chip which is relatively common. Don't sweat it, if you get so sick of it that you don't care if it dies then do a lot of research on delidding and do that so you can run that voltage or even a higher voltage with a lot lower temps. The disclaimer here is that it is a dangerous process, but if you research for a while and watch lots of vids on it then it should be relatively easy, still a chance of failure though.

You can't delid these chips without taking a torch to them to melt the solder because the IHS is soldered to the die. The Ivy bridge like your chip didn't use a soldered IHS, so it was easily removed.


OP, my 9330K also runs 4.4GHz at 1.36v, which is OK. But my chip does run 4.7GHz with 1.41v vcore, so it does seem to scale a little better. You might find your chip does the same. I don't like to run the vcore that high without watercooling, so I just keep it at 4.4GHz. I use offset for vcore, so I don't worry about LLC.

Woahhh my bad 12 hours of work made me think I seen 3770k somewhere in the post. Sorry! Better go to sleep before I say anything else that stupid.

Okay thanks. Wasn't sure if that was normal or not. What speed ram do you have? I'm having trouble getting my ram to its stated 2400 speeds. I can't get above the preset of 1833 without the bios refusing to go past post.

My ram is rated for 1866. It is a 32Gb kit, so is a high density. I've only been able to push it to 2133. Once you try to push ram higher than 2133, you really need to add voltage to the VCCSA and VTTCPU. You might have to increase them to 1.15v-1.25v:

My voltage settings for 2133:

I can't get anything above ddr3-1866

I set vccsa to 1.25 and vttcpu to 1.25. Wont post with ddr3-2133 or -2400

Tried both at 1.30, still wont post. What gives?

I don't get it. I don't even run hyperthreading because what I use my computer for runs worse with it enabled. Hmm. Gonna try your settings and change from a hard voltage to offset.
