LLC is on auto - Looks like the board is running it at level 9.

I'll mess with the multiplier later. Enough for one day, but you can be assured that I WILL push it. With a really good loop and the low temps I'm seeing I really should be able to do way better.

1.28`1.3V for 4.375GHz OC? Man that is kinda high. I would recommend ~1.25V

Like I said, this is on auto. The board is picking those numbers. My plan is to actually raise the multiplier and see what it does with the voltage. Funny thing is, higher voltage = higher temps and yet I'm hitting really comfortably low temps despite that voltage. I don't worry much about the CPU voltage (unless it's unreasonably high) and really only worry about the max temp I hit during Prime95.

Question - with my last board I used a base voltage + offset. What's the best with the Sabertooth? I see an adaptive option there. Is that worth anything?

I use offset mode. +245mV is what I am using to get 4.33GHz OC right now. During load my vCore is at 1.245V. During idle I can enjoy the low 0.9V vCore along with the low power consumption. I would recommend offset mode.

I'll try and see what happens. I think my OC issues have all been related to the memory so assuming the numbers I'm using allow the board to keep posting, getting a nice OC should be doable. Ideally I want that low idle voltage as well. That's how I had it with my last board. It would drop the multiplier and voltage at idle and raise it as needed.

You can only use adaptive if you use 100bclk.

I use offset with +200mv, and i'm happy with 4ghz daily. When i bench i use manual @ 1.35v @ 4625. In terms of temps i'd be worried with anything higher than 80C on these cpu's. I get failures after 80C.

Individual core temp or package temp?
post #587 of 1988
Individual cores. My package temp is generally a few C behind it, so if one core goes over, generally the package isn't too far either tongue.gif

Why would anything over 80C worry you? As far as I know they can safely do 100 before they'll throttle down. That's the TJMax right? Knowing Intel engineers (and engineers in general) that means 100C is still a conservatively safe number for these chips. Don't misunderstand, I wouldn't want the chip running hotter than needed anyway. So far even Prime95 barely hits 80 and on a daily basis I don't do stuff that's even 50% that stressful on the CPU, but it really should have no issues handling 95 comfortably for short periods.

Weird, NO BIOS listed on Asus Sabertooth x99 downloads at the moment.

At the time of this post: All gone!

They moved it. Look under OS -> Other.

I found that when I was looking for Rampage V Extreme BIOSes.
(Oh and btw, I picked one up on the way home from work today)

Gonna do some OCing now with the Sabertooth now.. see where I get.
