Any room for improvement ? Been running Prime 95 for 2 hours , temps 70C or under

that's fine buddy,

but i found the most stability w/ speedstep by using offset voltages and a " High " LLC setting.

you can up your cpu current cap, wont do any harm,

I turn off spread spectrum on my chip too...

any real q's pm me,

I run a 2500k at 4.9 / 5.0 ghz stable, and have done so for 2 1/2 years now

have you primed it yet ? what's your max vcore on prime under load ( half an hour or more to find this # )

1.32 Voltage did fine in Small FFTs for 12 hours, and stayed at 1.320. Crashed after a few min on Blend Test.

Upped to 1.34 voltage and am now attempting blend test again. CPU-Z shows VCore to fluctuate between 1.328 and 1.352 after only a few minutes... then finally settles on 1.328. Temps in the high 60's.

We'll see how long Blend test goes. Haven't changed anything in previous settings except for manual voltage to 1.340.

try learning offset voltages, + offset .25 to start, to keep up with your vid and voltage requirements

i'll tell you this from experience, you are safe up to 1.450 v core 24/7 with that 2500k,

although you wont need anything near that for true stability at 4.5.

learn offsets, .25-.40 is about the range you will be looking for with a positive offset and " High " LLC settings.

make sure your cooling is adequate though if you start going near 1.4 v core

my chip pulls a clean 1.385 for 4.8 in prime blend with 80 % ram usage, it sounds like you still have some headroom for core clock and voltage thumb.gif
