A kind-of concern that just occured with my 3770k

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So when I got this rig all set up about 3 months ago I decided to try for 4.5. I got there, got it stable (30+ hours in Prime) then I started getting BSOD saying I needed more vcore. I kept messing around with it and no matter what I did it wouldn't bite so I decided to move it back to stock settings for a while. Here's where things became confusing. My friend bugged me to attempt at it again, only go slower this time. I took it from 3.5 to 4.0 no vcore stable for 30+ hours in prime.

Then 4.2 stable no vcore.

Then 4.3 stable no vcore...

Then I hit 4.4. I noticed in CPUZ that it took my voltage up from stock to around 1.45~. Odd because I didn't adjust it. Mind you, everything is set to auto so I'm assuming it's doing it because it needs more. As I kept going up so did the vcore. And yes, it stayed stabled.

Now my question is, why all of a sudden it doing this and not crashing on me? When I first got it and started testing it all I saw were BSOD, but now I don't see any and it auto adjusts the vcore to what it actually needs. Anything pass 4.3 takes a massive jump. I even reset the CMOS just to be on the safe side and that changed nothing.


I just feel concerned because it's doing this now and not when I got it all together.

the reason it does that is because the cpu is going based on what it thinks the vid should be for said frequency, that is a perfectly normal feature of auto, and it will also give you way more vcore than you need to be stable. make sure to use math and your own vcore when doing overclocks. Also on auto LLC is usually using the lowest setting which means your vcore at idle shot up way past what your saw when you opened cpuz
