I hope to help you
your ram timing is from XMP being on
XMP is just preset profiles with a slight overclock compared to stock ram
Things to turn off
Set most voltages to standard/normal rather than auto
Yesterday at 10:26 pm
Ok I will try that as soon as I let the system stress under Prime95 some more.
Can you possibly help me with the overclock as well ?
Yesterday at 10:31 pm
If windows/computer are recognizing my ram at 9-9-9-24 even though on the box it says 9-9-9-27 should I leave it like that? Maybe its for the best?
Yesterday at 10:34 pm
I wrote in your article just this is easier because pop-ups on refresh
I only have 2600k but should be pretty similar
My original oc was 4.2 it took me quite some time to get by it
I'm at 4.4 now can't get by it
1.364 was most stable for me currently I'm running 1.348 this is obviously irelevant to you
But this works best for me
offset .005 to 0.01
try most things with the options standard/normal rather than auto
anything on auto goes crazy
vcore forced is not energy efficient [to me]
loadline higher than medium to me crashed [people reconmended max load line which put me at 1.59v]
loadline standard/normal allows boot 4.4 fine
offset .005 because auto etc also pushes too much v

no turn xmp off
manually set main timings
9-9-9-24 is good but xmp is another thing that causes issues [for me anyways]
Yesterday at 10:38 pm
ok I will turn off xmp and set them to 9-9-9-24. 9-9-9-24 is better than 9-9-9-27 correct?
Also my max temperature so far has be 88-89c is that ok?
This is my first time attempting an overclock. I'm kind of lost.
Yesterday at 10:41 pm
It's okay temp for prime
but load under common use I would never go over 70
you can look at http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1845420/4770k-h100i-80c-max-temp.html
related to that question
ram timing is number of cycles 24 is three less cycles to 27 so yes it's faster
Yesterday at 10:42 pm
for more information on ram timings http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Understanding-RAM-Timings/26
seems legitimate enough
Yesterday at 10:47 pm
Temperatures got me worried. A part of me thinks I need more voltage.
Yesterday at 10:50 pm
Higher voltage = higher temperature
so you want less voltage
unless you can get a new cooler or delid your cpu then you can go ahead tongue.gif
my overclock is 60c max but you must remember i'm on a 2600k
Yesterday at 10:51 pm
Does higher voltage translate to better performance though ? What about changing the clocks on each individual core ? During gameplay I'm around 45-49 degrees
Yesterday at 10:56 pm
Higher voltage = more stable
Higher temps = less stable
Higher clock = more performance
Lower ram timings = more performance
Stable overclock = more performance
it's fine if that's your temp in game
but you must take into account some games use more cpu than others
Yesterday at 10:58 pm
My biggest problem is why didn't I see a performance gain going from 3.5 to 4.2 ghz?
Yesterday at 11:00 pm
at 3.5 turbo was on to 3.9ghz
.3ghz shouldn't be that much
4.2 isn't a sweet spot
Yesterday at 11:01 pm
How do I get to 4.4? Also temp is up to 57 in game.
Yesterday at 11:02 pm
Once again depends on the game most are nice to the cpu
and have you tried the settings I stated above?
you can save profiles in bios in case you don't like the new settings
Yesterday at 11:04 pm
and I said you should be ok temps for gaming
Yesterday at 11:04 pm
The offset thing confused me a little bit.
Yesterday at 11:06 pm
Okay so what're your current settings?
Yesterday at 11:12 pm
CPU vicomte 1.185v. CPU clock ratio 4.2. Dram voltage 1.5. Memory 1866. CPU vcore offset 0.0 auto.
Yesterday at 11:13 pm
Sorry I must go to bed.
is a good guide
He goes to a really risky temperature though.
It's also based on an Asus board rather than gigabyte
everything is relatively the same
Yesterday at 11:14 pm
CPU base clock auto Host pcie clock freq 100.0. I saw on youtube maybe I should turn that up. Also on performance boost is auto. Should I put it to medium ? High? Turbo ? Extreme ?
Yesterday at 11:14 pm
Ok I will
Yesterday at 11:19 pm
CPU vcore offset 0.0 auto. I put mine as 0.005
I have CPU Vcore [CPU vicomte 1.185v] set to normal/standard
I have loadline set to normal/standard
I have bclock on auto [loads in windows as 99.7]
I have my memory at 1866mhz 9-10-9-24-1
I have multiplier 44
I have turbo clock off
igpu auto or off [unless you use it]
That oc guide is pretty comprehensive so try it
or try my settings
but I GTG bye
I hope I helped
Yesterday at 11:22 pm
memory performance boost?
I actually have never noticed a difference
pcie/bclock is not good to touch because it overclocks cpu, gpu and ram at same time so it may help stable one but unstable other
