Did my overclock work? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Lets say I want to push to 4.2 Ghz+

Are there any other settings I need to do other than multiplier change? Can I leave turbo boost on? can I keep voltage on auto?

Disable turbo, set the all core multiplier to 42 and then do an offset voltage in the negative. Start at -.050. Then stress test it for 20 minutes if it passes move it downyet to .055. The goal is to get the lowest possible voltage at load to get the best temps possible. Keep 12 testing for 20 minutes at a time until you hit the wall. Once you get the 20 minute fail your wall bump it up a notch and then run it for 4 hours. If you have any questions please ask and let us know how it goes.

Not a fan of offset at all.

 

So here's what I'd recommend.

 

Go in to BIOS.

revert everything to stock

Put memory on "XMP Profile 1" (if you have that setting) OR change memory settings (timing, speed, voltage) to it's rated settings manually.

Turn off all the voltage saving features (they look like "C1E, C3, C6 Etc..") Also disable turbo boost features.

Find the vcore of a 3770k at stock speeds. Raise the multiplier by 1.

Use intel burn test for 5 runs at normal.

If you pass, raise multiplier by 1. If you fail, raise vcore by .01

Do this till' you reach your happy place.

Then, do 15 runs of IBT at the difficulty that uses all your RAM

i'm just changing my vcore to whatever voltage i need, should I be using the offsets instead?
post #15 of 17
I always use offset if available so when the CPU throttles down the voltage decreases too. No sense in throwing excessive voltage at the cpu when it's not necessary.

The "old school" overclocker uses "fixed" but it isn't necessary. Offset is the way to go, especially with a 4.2 ghz goal. Sometimes when going for the highest possible clock "fixed" has been known to help achieve stability.

why do we turn off the power saving features?

You don't IMO, that's once again, the old school approach.

The old fashion way was to have your CPU basically pegged at all times to eliminate any "spooling up" effect. The power was there immediately upon request. The i series CPU's are so fast, that method is unnecessary.

Offset with all power saving features enabled is the way to go, especially with your 4.2 ghz goal. If you were shooting for 5+, then were talking about a different approach.
