What program are you reading it with? The only program that accurately shows my normal cores dropping is HWMonitor (which doesn't show the uncore, unfortunately) and TMonitor (which also doesn't show the uncore).
Thus, the only programs I know that report the Uncore speed don't even show my regular cores dropping when they really are.
I need some help guys, lol....I've tried everything I know. The stock VID is 1.088V after Optimized Defaults and 1.150V after enabling XMP (no idea why, but the stock VID changes after I enable XMP). Here are my results, cooled with a Noctua NH-U14S (slightly worse, equal to, or slightly better than a NH-D14, if that helps):
As a summary, 4.2GHz @ 1.275 is the highest stable I can get it and that's only testing with Prime95. 4.4GHz @ 1.350 crashed within a few minutes and 4.3GHz @ 1.300 crashed in 45 minutes while hitting upper 80's regularly (so afraid to try 4.3GHz @ 1.350). I haven't changed any
other settings than the Vcore, VRIN, VRING, multi, and uncore--do I need to be changing any others? Like the Turbo power limit or what-not? Sin's profiles list "Turbo" as auto, so probably not. Right?
And those temps look normal, right? It's an i5-4670K, not delidded. I had a little trouble getting the cooler on, but the temps don't look terrible for those voltages, right?Edited by ikjadoon - 9/20/13 at 7:36am
