In my case (I run 5.0 stable daily on a 3570k) messing with it only caused issues, and in fact did not help me stabilize anything, but your mileage may vary. The largest factor in stabilizing 5.0 for me was the elephant in the room...voltage. Voltage becomes exponentially more necessary the higher you go. When I try to go from 4.5 to 4.6, I only need an extra +.020, but going from 4.9-5.0 i needed almost +.060. I also found that using a higher LLC allowed me to not require as much added voltage in BIOS, but still gave me the same load VCORE, it does spike upwards or +.010, but it doesn't stay there.

Just because you can boot 5.0 does not guarantee that you will be able to stabilize it. Sometimes it just needs more voltage than is safe to feed it. Much of what I said is probably unnecessary, and not very helpful, but I am rooting for you! Getting 5.0 feels good. thumb.gif

That helped a ton. I did a lot of lowering the vcore and discovered that I could get 4.7Ghz to hold prime95 at only 1.28 volts, 59c. The jump from 4.7 to 4.8 was monumental, costing me 1.37 volts to get it to hold. It's priming right now at that speed, and i'm leveled at 67c. I still am unsure how much LLC affects the actual voltages, but i left it at Extreme and then proceeded to volt down as far as it could go with my base clock (4.5).

Thank you very much for the pointers, and the time you took to answer. I appreciate everyone elses input as well. Would you kindly PM me your email?

No, not if it is for some reward money, I think I will pass on that, I really did nothing more for you than I would for anybody else around here. 4.7-4.8 @ a cost of .09 indicates that likely the limit to what you can do would be 4.9 at somewhere around 1.48ish. If 5.0 is what you want, you might consider grabbing a binned chip from someone around here and selling the one you have now, which is by no means a horrible clocker, just not golden. I don't know at what point voltage kills chips, but I do know that I personally would not be comfortable taking any chip past 1.5 on water for every day play.

How about you post up some pics of this rig?!

What is LLC? Also trying to get lower volts for 4.5 on 4670k, just wondering.

Here they are. It's not completely done, I'm working on a custom shroud for the top. It's a little ugly on the inside, but the point of this project was an almost completely silent PC. There's a lot of sound dampening built in to the panels, and once I get the shroud done it will vent the air out the back after hitting some dampening materials.

The valve you can see at the bottom is part of a flushing system I set up to change the fluid while the system is running.
