Whatever is cheaper, I don't mind.

I just found a seller locally that sells 270x for $120 brand new for cheap though.

I'm currently stable-ish, at 4.2 GHz, 32x ring ratio, 1.9v vccin, 1.120 cpu core, rest on auto.

Here's my few questions:

1. My CPU Ratio Mode is currently set to dynamic, should it be? Or should it be fixed?
2. Why does HWMonitor say my cpu vcore is 1.136? (at max, it fluctuates a lot, not sure why it's not constant)

The above is my only two questions right now. It's been weird overclocking, I'll set my vcore to the voltage showing beside it in the bios, then try to boot up, and I'll get the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR. So I kept upping the vcore, finally stable at where I'm at right now, but looks like I have a lot of room to work with.

Can someone help plan out the next few steps to get me higher?


Try 1.2 vcore, 39x ring ratio and 1.15 vring voltage.

whea_uncorrectable is bsod 124 which usually means it needs more vcore

I believe the only options I have are "Fixed" and "Dynamic". Not override.
When I set it to 1.136v, will it then be +0.025v higher in HWMonitor? Is that normal then?

Can you explain the reasoning? (so I can learn a bit more about the thought process)

I'm stable right now at those settings. I'm assuming you mean to raise the vCore if I'm trying to go higher? What affect would the ring ratio have at x39 compared to currently at x32? And my vring voltage is on auto, unless vring means one of the other settings I mentioned, what's the advantage to changing it now?

This signal path is called BD PROCHOT which stands for bi-directional processor hot. Hardly any motherboards let you access this in the bios but you can try running ThrottleStop. It lets you disable the BD PROCHOT signal path so your CPU should run at its rated speed. Post some screenshots if you are still having problems. You can download version 6 from TechPowerUp but the latest version is stable and has some more features for the 4th Gen CPUs.

Do a Google search for BD PROCHOT if you don't know what I am talking about. This is a common problem on many desktop and mobile motherboards.

ThrottleStop 7.00 beta 3

Will definitely try it once I get back hom

I will try this tonight when I get back home from work!

Thanks!

Still waiting on the CLU, but I went ahead lapped my Corsair H55. Load temps dropped 2C, but that could be from replacing the stock TIM with Antec Nano Diamond 6. Either way, it was convex before, and now it isn't! biggrin.gif

Fixed is to static as dynamic is to adaptive. wink.gif

Tried 1.6 searching for x50 but nothing. I am delidded and delidding it drops like 8°C with liquid metal.

Had some fun while trying to compete in the OC4DOGE competition on HWBot, and found out it runs 5Ghz in Windows XP just fine!

Ah, I thought you weren't stable under 1.2 vcore, so that's why I suggested it. x39 ring ratio won't impact performance much, and honestly, you won't notice a difference unless you're running synthetics.



"safe" 24/7 limits:

1.3 vcore
1.15 vring
1.9 VCCIN

my bad i meant fixed, although its not a big deal either can be used when finding your stable overclock. vcore as monitored is usually higher than the vid you set in bios, i have the same hardware as you and it is usually .025 higher for me.
