Am I overclocking correctly?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow OC'ers!!

I currently have a 3770K cooled by a Corsair H100i on a ASUS Maximus V Gene and I was wondering if I have OC'ed it correctly!

My settings are:
AI Overclock Tuner: Manual
BLCK/PEG Freq: 100.0
All core ratio: 4.7GHz
Internalisere PLL overvoltage: Enabled
Xtreme Tweaking: Disabled
SPI Booster: Disabled
EPU Power saving: Disabled
Extreme OV: Disabled
CPU Voltage: (1.295V) Manual Mode
CPU Manual Voltage: 1.275V

DIGI+ Power control:
Load-Line calibration: Extreme
CPU Fixed Freq: 500
Power Phase Control: Extreme
Power Duty Control: Extreme
Current Capability: 150%

At it's current settings it can't run a Prime95 FFT test without BSOD.
It runs for a little while (about 10 minuts) with core 1 at about 85 C and all other cores below 80 C (is this normal?)

So should I just increse the manual voltage or do you think something else should be changed?

Bonus question: I have this theory that if a FFT (CPU only) stresstest goes to 95 C and not any higher it will be stabe because no software would normally make it go that high. Is this correct?


Thank you all!

I have very similar setup,and 4.7 is pushing it. I run 4.4 stable, and you won' t see a massive jump in performance with the extra .3.

I know it won't be a massive jump but it will be somewhat faster.
I'm guessing I'm just gonna lower the GHz to 4.6 or 4.5 and fiddle with the Vcore to make a stable system.

But I'd still really like to get 4.7GHz! There's just something about that number I like.
