overclocked 3770k - Page 2

It's Vdroop, and the way you counter it is by changing your setting for LoadLine Calibration. You should see it in the power settings portion of your BIOS - sometimes it is LoadLine Calibration, sometimes called LLC, or Multistep LoadLine depending on motherboard - set it to something in the middle of whatever range you have. So 50%, or Level 3, or High, something like that, and see if that helps. It sounds like you have it turned off with that big drop.

Sweet, thanks for the knowledge. When i change the vdroop offset my vore voltage just drops with load, below my the 1.12~1.128 that i need for my chip to be stable. I adjusted the vdroop to +50% at first which took my vcore to 1.088 with prime95 running. So i adjusted it back to the lowest setting +12% and it was still unstable. I changed it back to auto and its stable again. Dont know why it would drop that low with a 1.15 core voltage?

I don't know, that's a lot of Vdroop. Did you try a higher setting for LLC? All the boards handle it differently, on some Auto is basically off and on some it is medium or high. Try something higher in the range and see if that helps control it. So Ultra High or 75% or whatever.

Msi board? 100% or auto for the lowest amount of vdroop, going less than 100% will allow more vdroop so will need higher vcore in the bios to compensate
It is easiest to leave it at auto for the least amount of vdroop.
