Turbo Overclock vs Fixed OC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all, been playing around with the Turbo Overclocking configuration that some people use. It works pretty well, I'm finding though that Turbo OC takes a little bit to get going, like any Eco mode. If you run IBT, the first runs tend to have a lower Gflop number vs the other runs since it takes a bit to get warmed up or get turbo going. Is there other settings, SA/PLL that you can tinker with to get Auto to continue to work at the higher frequencies?

Overview:

Turbo Overclock: Vcore=Auto, CPU Turbo limits are set to the higher multiplier at each individual core. Throttles down processor across an entire range, not just 1600 or 4500, but 1600, 2200, 3500, 4500, and throttles the voltage as well. The big negative is that you really can't go higher than say 4.4 GHZ with Vcore on auto. You can still run Turbo OC with a fixed Vcore, but then the voltage doesn't throttle.

Fixed Voltage OC: Vcore=set value. Negative is that Vcore doesn't throttle down even though speed does, and speeds only toggle between min and max, so 1600 or 4500 mhz.

Turbo overclocking is the way to go for the last couple generations.

Only reason I have mine on fixed is because I don't pay for electricity biggrin.gif

You might as well go fixed if you're trying to go higher than 4.4 Ghz. I know I saw one of the Asus guys on YouTube talking about Asymmetrical Turbo overclocks being the way to go, so 45/44/43/43 for example.

I run 4.95ghz on an i5 2500k using turbo with no issues

Do you have Vcore on Auto?

You forgot offset Vcore. It's just a flat value that's added to the CPU's VID, so it'll go down when idle because VID goes down. You can overclock as much as you want as you can recreate whatever fixed Vcore you want with offset.
