Playing planetside 2 while overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok so using offset voltage and LLC level 3 i had a 12-hour stable tested overclock of min voltage 0.840 and max voltage of 1.128v at 4.6ghz. It seemed to work quite well for planetside 2 but i would still crash after a long game session, no where near unplayable but annoying. Went down to LLC 4/5 no difference same idea when i got hte voltage where i wanted. Crashed after a while maybe 1.5-2hours.

Ive found that LLC 1 and 2 while using Offset make planetside 2 crash more often, LLC 3 helps and 4 and 5 show no noticeable improvement over level 3. I still find that stock clock does not crash, and using level 1 LLC Fixed voltage of 1.125v (as llc 2-3-4-5 all have bad droop and cause my "idling Fixed voltage" to be higher and my load voltage goes way low making LLC level 1 the only choice for me using fixed)has not crashed on me yet, going to play alot more with it now to make sure its just not longer then the offset.

One strange thing i noticed while using Offset is that while prime95 was running my voltage would max at 1.128v. While playing planetside it would hit 1.144v-1.152v. When using Fixed its more expected, Prime causes it to go between 1.120v and 1.128v(averaging 1.125v most likely since its what is set.) while playing planetside maxes at 1.120v sometimes 1.112v. Im guessing it jumps between the two in HWmonitor/CPU-Z but i can only really get a max from HW monitor since it drops to 1.104v when no load is on the cpu which is what happens when i minimize. So this is a little weird but im starting to figure some stuff out. That offset voltage difference between Prime and Planetside 2 is really baffling me. I always thought synthetics would cause a higher voltage then a game would. I thought maybe it was intel turbo but why would turbo not be used while prime95 was running? Not onyl that changing the addition turbo voltage in my BIOS would increase the max voltage of the prime95 sessions and of my planetside 2 sessions so it was obviously affecting both.

I have never crashed playing planetside 2, and I run at 4.4GHz fixed voltage.

Have you ever ran planetside 2 with offset voltage? If you have not if you have a setting you know it stable id love to know if you experience a similar problem. Seems as though fixed is stable in planetside 2.

P.S. I like your name lol

I've had some trouble actually getting the voltage right when I run an offset. I haven't had much time lately, so I just gave up. Speed step reduces the power consumption enough that I don't think the chip will really be degraded significantly, even at high voltages, over time, when it's in idle.

There aren't any voltages that I know would be stable on your chip.

I have stable Offsets for my chip its just always problematic for planetside 2. I believe i have speedstep enabled, that's why i idle at 16x multiplier and that even though i run fixed voltage at 1.125v that at idle my vcore is 1.104v-1.112v and when i go up to full load its 1.120v-1.128v.(back and forth so average im sure its 1.125v.) These voltages are ofcourse not exactly what they seem since i have an ASRock extreme 4 z77 and it tends to overvolt bu .030v-.070v and some peoples even up to 0.100v. Still its a good Voltage for 4.6 and from what i can tell(1.125v +.07v would be 1.195v maybe 1.225v if im at that 0.1v extra like some) if i keep it on fixed i dont think there will be any real degradation to my chip.

Planetside 2 crashes occasionally during very long (6-10 hours at a stretch) sessions for me, and rarely, if ever exits cleanly. Planetside 2 is a buggy game, with known issues, and will crash sooner or later on pretty much anything, especially if you are using any unoffical ini settings or the like.

However, if your OC is actually reasonably stable (and 12 hours of Prime 95 does not come anywhere near demonstrating this), you should not crash any more OCed than at stock.

If it was actually stable Planetside 2 would not be crashing any more often than with any other hardware settings.

The interaction between all of these settings is extremely complex and to find the less common instabilities will require many different tests and combinations of tests.
