i7-3770k Baseline Temps, should I OC? - Page 2

You can get the latest program from here.

Use manual/fixed, I think you're throwing more volts at it than needed. For example a quick 15min blend run for comparison - manually set to 1.21v in BIOS.



add: sorry, not sure what is wrong with the pictures. I can't get them to show up and/or only in smaller size like above making it impossible to read almost.

excuse me but why are you trying to set very high voltage at a 4.0ghz clock? i mean i am using the stock cooler (since i broke my aftermarket one) CPU is running at 4.0ghz at 1.02v vcore. i am not understanding the benefit of having high voltage at low overclock. thinking.gif

^ This.

I'm currently stress testing my 3770k at 4.5 with only 1.15v and it have been stable for 14 hours so far (linpack).

Maybe his requires such high vcore? i hope not though. lol

Its all relitive not every chip is the same. Like yours takes 1.15 to be stable at 4.5, while mine takes only 1.12 for 4.5GHz prime stable.

I'm aware of the silicon lottery, however OP stated that he hasn't played with BIOS settings yet, thus the recommendation of lowering the volts...

Sorry folks, I thought I would be able to use offset mode w/out having it increase my Voltage so high, apparently I was wrong about that.
I am switching to fixed mode to see what I can get 4ghz to w/ the lowest possible voltage. I tried 1.1v and it crashed w/ prime running after < 5m, I am going to keep tweaking. Thanks for your help, I'll keep you posted...

Ok, now I have some much more reasonable numbers after setting a fixed voltage of 1.2v (I tried 1.1v and 1.15v but prime95 wouldn't run for the full hour):

Prime95 for 1 hour | Max Temp: 64c | Max CPU VCore: 1.112

IntelBurnTest for 10 runs | Max Temp: 63c | Max CPU VCore: 1.112v


So now the question is should I forge ahead and increase the multiplier some more or quit now and be happy with my lower temps and 4Ghz that I sought out to get?
Also are there any other tests I should run to ensure this is truly stable with these settings?

Thanks again for all the feedback, it is greatly appreciated.

well there you go, these are reasonable numbers. now you are on the right direction these temps are perfectly fine for 4ghz how ever i would recommend you pushing more clocks and maybe alittle more voltage to handle the higher clocks that you might set. and see if it goes stable, if it is stable with reasonable temperatures you are good to go thumb.gif

I am glad you got the idea of it so far... keep on going ^^

EDIT: some tests to ensure your overclock is stable, probably the recommendation of my preference is 12 hours of prime95. if your CPU passes through 12 hours i would use that overclock for 24/7 setup. hope that gives you an idea.

I was able to get it to run prime95 for 10+hrs but I had to bump the voltage from 1.2v to 1.25v...
Prime95 for 10 hrs | Max Temp: 66c | Max CPU VCore: 1.112


Before I proceed, I want to make sure I understand why using the "Offset" method of configuring the CPU voltage didn't work for me.
My understanding (according to the "complete-overclocking-guide-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-asrock-edition" guide) is that using "offset" will provide you with the ability to have a reduced voltage when idling while using fixed mode will not (full voltage all the time):
Quote:
Offset Mode: Your CPU will use VERY LITTLE voltage and speed when idling, ANYTIME you idle. (Even browsing can be considered idling.)
Fixed Mode: Your CPU will run full voltage and speed all the time, even when idling.

So to me, it makes much more sense to run in Offset mode because there will be long durations of idle time on my server since the workload I will be throwing at it won't require full voltage/speed all the time. However based upon my previous benchmarks in this thread, running this CPU in offset mode causes the voltage to spike violently even when running with a relatively low multiplier.

So in short, I want to revisit using Offset mode while keeping my multiplier at 40, and hopefully get similar voltage/temperature results compared to using Fixed mode, can you please provide me with some pointers on how I can make that happen?

As always thank you all for your tremendous feedback.
