The Gigabyte Z87/Haswell Overclocking(OC) Guide - Page 231

post #2301 of 3247
Uncore is relevant for everything, it just doesn't seem to be a notable performance gain in basically any case. I've yet to see a single application where 45/45 is faster than 46/33 - and if anyone wants to provide a good benchmark showing that, i'd be very interested to see happysmiley.gif

Nobody will run 33x anyway, i just don't think it's much of a debate right now that for example 46/40 is better than 45/45.

As for you running 40x uncore - i think pretty much everyone wants that, but it's just maybe best to leave it 33x and at a safe voltage while overclocking core, because uncore and core throw the same errors when they're unstable, and it's important to identify which is which. IMC also throws some of the same bluescreens, too, for example, so i'd always go into haswell OC with 33x uncore @1.15v, RAM at 1333 until i had core where i wanted it

Ah, so should I drop it back to 33x @ 1.15v and see if I can go higher on core? The only reason why I upped it was because the OP mentioned he saw better results by upping it past stock when core would get around 4.4GHz+ Is this not true any more?

Nah, it never really was. 46/40 (or even 46/33) destroys 45/45 in every benchmark i've seen; if cache is relevant, it's in niche situations - it's a secondary concern after you are at the core and memory clocks that you want

Ah okay, well I'm going to make sure I save my settings on paper or something and reset everything. Is it safe to load the motherboard defaults when I have an overclock on? And is there a way to save my current settings and switch back to them if I can't find a better clock?
post #2305 of 3247
Yea it's safe to reset, and you should be able to save an OC profile? It's on the right of the screen when you go into bios

Keeping Uncore too low have any bearing on Benchmark like Cinebench 15,XTU's bench ?
Just asking coz as you know i have low Uncore-35/Stock Voltage for stable 4.3G which gave me 760 points on XTU. I mean does this mean i can up y uncore as my core freq seems stable to say 38-40 region with little bump in Uncore Voltage ?

If you want to stay at 4.3g on the core, you can. 44x core would be faster than anything you can do with uncore for the majority of tests, though. Cinebench favors 44/33 over 43/43 significantly, i believe

Will try 4.4G with Uncore 35x.
Aim is to get core as high as possible with little voltage.biggrin.gif

I did notice that the Intel XTU benchmark is considerably affected by the uncore speed.
