i have a 2 month old build with
i5 4670K cpu
MSI G45 Mobo
G.Skill 1866 16 GB ram
EVGA 760 GTX 2 GB
With that aside. i have been trying to over clock my cpu and i have followed various threads and forums. Please let me know if im doing something wrong or anything i could improve.
my settings in the bios are :
CPU multiplier - 44x (FIXED mode)
Ring multiplier - 35
vcore - 1.17 override mode but it shows up in HWinfo at 1.2
vring - 1.15 override mode
CPU input voltage - 1.89 but it shows up in HWinfo at 1.904
turned off XMP for ram and set it to 1600ddr3. Is there a way to have it back to 1866 to increase the speed of the ram? or is it better at 1600?
I have ran AIDA64 for 2 hours and Prime95 on blend for 30min with highest temps on aida64 at 60C and 63C on prime95.
Some questions i had were do i leave the both vcore and vring voltage on override mode for daily use? Also my vcore, vring and cpu input voltage seem abnormally low compared to others. Should i be worried? even though i set my vcore in bios to 1.16, on cpu-z it read core voltage during testing at 1.184-1.192, is there a reason or concern for this?
please let me know if i should continue to drop my vcore, vring and cpu input voltage or anything else that would improve efficiency.
