1.18v vcore 3770k 4.4ghz?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
So I've set my vcore to 1.18v just as a starting point and it seems to run fine and be stable. After looking around online though, a few people have said that they only can get their chips stable at 2ish volts at 4.4. I've run 3DMark and 95 prime and even run some starcraft replays. Can anyone let me know what their stable voltages are at 4.4?

Thanks a bunch!

I recommend just finding out the optimal core voltage for your particular CPU that you ended up with here. To do that, you'll have to do the recommended stability testing because just going by how it seems can result in major headaches later on because it might not be stable yet.

 

My personal recommendation is running Prime95 v27.7 or v27.9 (nothing earlier than 27.7). With the Blend test selected, click the Custom test and then enter about 90% of your memory. You'll just replace where it says "1024" with about 90% of whatever you have installed. Then the goal is to get a minimum of about 12 hours out of this without any problems.

It's a computer!

I have been reading here about some users getting great voltages on higher clocks. They say it is an improvement in the new batch of chips that Intel has released.

If everything is stable, I say congrats thumb.gif I'm good with my 1.24, but 1.18 or so would be nice.

everyone's chip is different so it wouldn't really matter, but just for the sake of it im at 4.5ghz 1.28v.

Looks like a nice overclock! I've got 4.6 GHz with 1.20 V on my 3570K. smile.gif
post #7 of 31
OP - we're in the same boat smile.gif 1.172v @ 4.4ghz

Running 4.5 right now @ 1.23v but will be delidding tomorrow to see how much I can push the chip! smile.gif

Thanks guys, I know that chips are different, but I just wanted to do a sanity check. I'll keep testing.

Cheers!

4.5 @ 1.2v 3770k. Yours seems about right compared to my chip thumb.gif

Cool!. Kinda makes sense to me now. Just bought a 3770k last week and first time OC last night. Tried 4.5Ghz at 1.144. Got BSOD after 20 min. Dialed it down to 4.4Ghz @ 1.144v. So far i'm 10 hours in Prime95 custom test / 90% RAM. *crossing fingers* until I get home from work that it's still stable.

Weird thing though: At the 20 to 30 min, my temp jumped to 91C, but after that test passed. It never broke the 80C mark.
