Athlon 860K, any one picking it up? - Page 247

post #2461 of 3195
I understood only 7890k would be with soldered IHS. Maybe the 880k also

The 7870ks are already soldered. Apparently so are the 7670ks?

Most likely all parts based on Godavari are.

Got a two questions (that could change lol) for you guys. I have been running my 860K @ 4.3 for the past year now at 1.475V set in bios, but under load is 1.456V (lowest stable voltage for 4.3) and I know, massive Vdroop. I see that most of you use LLC, yet when I try to use it all I get is overshoot even on medium. Are any of you experiencing this type of behaviour? I couldn't use it on my 760K either, just overshoots my voltage set in bios.

My second question has to do with Asus Ai suite, Win10 is now supported and I have installed it. Using the 4way optimization just for power savings settings, will it mess with my OC? Any way to lower my idle voltage without compromising what is needed for full load at my current OC of 4.3 @ 1.456V? (1.475V bios)

LLC behavior is going to be based on motherboard and to a lesser extent, power supply.

So, which motherboard do you use, and which PSU?

Asus A88X Pro, and Corsair AX850 PSU.

Weird, you shouldn't be getting droop like that with solid mobo + PSU. I have an A88x-Pro with an ancient HX520 PSU, and when I have volts cranked up to 1.5v+ for benching, the most droop I get is maybe ~.02v before LLC kicks in,and LLC just puts me up to maybe within .005v of the default I set in the UEFI.

Might be a faulty board? Bad units do happen.

It does sound pretty odd. Next time I'll restart I'll take note of the settings I have for 4.3ghz.
post #2469 of 3195
Okay so here's the dealie. Voltage is set to 1.44375 in BIOS (I also have NB at 2000). CPU-Z reports 1.432 on Idle and on Prime95 load, it bumps up to 1.44. LLC is set to Medium and Current/NB Current is set to 140/130%. if I don't have NB set to 2000, I have to set voltage in BIOS to 1.5 to be stable.

Huh. The voltages seem high for 4.3 GHz, but the droop/load levels don't seem terrible. The main thing is that your voltage is within spitting distance of the UEFI setting (-.00375v). Though I'm perplexed as to why your NB speed has so much effect on the necessary vcore for stability.
