Issue with voltage on overclocking the i5-3570K

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I'm kinda new to overclocking, but I just had a few questions about my setup and settings.

So I'm having issues oc'ing the i5-3570K, I can run it at 4.3ghz with vcore set to auto, and it runs at 1.272 volts at full load (running Aida64). My temps are very good with 65 celsius max. Stable after 6 hour Aida64 stress test.

Previously I tested at 4.5ghz with vcore set to auto, was running 1.452 volts at full load, temp max was 74 celsius. Was pretty stable after 3 hour Aida64 stress test.

Pic:


I have read on forums that running at 1.4v and up will degrade the cpu over time, and I should keep it at 1.2-1.35 maximum. I tried to set the vcore of 1.350 with an overclock of 4.5, and it either freezes in the uefi bios, or bluescreens. Same with 4.4ghz. Set to auto, 4.4ghz and 4.5ghz run at 1.45 volts.

Any suggestions would help.

Specs:
i5-3570K
GA-Z77X-D3H (rev 1.0)
CM Hyper 212 Evo with push/pull SP120's.
Vengeance 8GB 1600mhz
Windforce GTX 670
TX750 PSU

First of all never do auto vcore voltage when overclocking. If at 1.350v you are not stable there's not much you can do, unfortunately you have a bad chip.

That is a poor clocking chip my friend,

set voltage to 1.38 and multi to 4.5, try that and if nothing, try 1.4v, also are all power saving options off?

Is 1.4 "non-lethal" lol?

Which power saving features are you referring to? Turbo mode? (Sorry, kinda noobish)

I'll try these settings.

Depends on temperatures, but I would say that 1.4v is on the high side but doable for 24/7

And im on about disabling Turbo and all the CStates and EIST

So I set the multi to 4.5ghz, and vcore to 1.38, it froze in the bios, but a I did a reset and it's able to boot into Windows.

Aida64 stress test is running, 1.368 volts at full load, max 73 celsius.

This should be fine right? Less than 1.4v, running cool.

I don't know if bios will always freeze though....I'll keep testing it, did a bios flash to latest after I ran my first benchmarks, right before I posted here.

Change the loadline calibration to extreme.

Try playing with cpu pll, it increases stability afaik, and imo you should never have vcore on auto, always have it on a number you set.

I was able to do 4.5ghz on 1.28v purely by finding the sweet spot for the pll (if i remember correctly though).

No, that adds as much as 0.045v on my i7, put it on regular or on high to compensate.

Try putting it on high and do 1.37 instead, does that work too?

He is also correct, lowering to 1.55v (Or 1.55625 as I use to compensate for vDroop) can add stability to a PC<</div>

So I set the LLC to High, PLL to 1.55v, vcore to 1.37v, vcore to 4.5ghz.

Aida64 stress test full load: 67 celsius high, 1.368v.

Seems stable in windows, but I think there's a bug with my gigabyte bios rev, keeps freezing when I try to enter.
