Some lingering questions:
* The computer messes with the multipliers when I'm on Windows to lower the power consumption, but the voltage stays at 1.2V. I'd like to figure out how to keep dynamic voltage and only use the overclocked voltage higher if demand requires. I assume that has to do with the LLC 6 thing you mentioned, but I cannot find the LLC settings you were talking about in the BIOS. I also cannot find any cstate stuff that's mentioned in the guide on the first post, which I presume is the same thing.
* Where is the power savings off and CPU power management stuff you mentioned? Are you referring to the power savings stuff in Windows? If so, I already put that on performance, but set the minimum CPU usage to 5%.
* I take it I am also supposed to ignore the voltages for the PCH, MCH, and all the PLL doodads, leaving them on auto?
* I don't know what Kitty is, and I assume by Deluxe you mean the ASUS X99 Deluxe motherboard?

Edit
* I also noticed that the DRAM sitting next to the rear I/O panel is a good 16 degrees C hotter than the DRAM on the other side of the motherboard. I presume this is normal due to the proximity of things in that area? Is this what the helper fan that comes with the motherboard is for?




Take a look at the pictures below. They are from the RVE but you can find them on the same directory in your BIOS.

You will need offset or Adaptive to have a dynamic Vcore. Just Note that Adaptive only works on 100 Strap.


Just set them like +0.01 each. you will find a need to add a bit more once you start pushing everything. Focus on the Vcore for now.

Saberkitty = Sabertooth = Kitty

So my Cores temp are like 31C idle, but in the Bios it says the CPU (not core) temp is like 45C? is this weird?

Not sure if they can tell or not, but I assume if I were to fry the chip due to voltage I would assume they could tell?

I would be interested in some feedback also if theres a way to lock the voltage so it never goes up like that too


After some researching, it looks like asus x99 boards have serius bugs in their vrm...going to stay away from them, no money to waste on the try...

I see you have specific Turbo Mode settings entered. What are they meant to do and why are they not on auto? I also do not see anything like the LLC 6 you mentioned previously, and my C states don't give me the option to select a specific state like in the guide. Furthermore, isn't my adaptive voltage going to require my C states to be intact and not disabled like you have them? Finally, could you show me what your other voltages are set at, or confirm that I indeed leave them as Auto?

Edit: I also am unsure if my chip is just amazing or I have messed up sensors. At 4.5GHz I'm stable on ASUS RealBench for going on 20 minutes now with the 1.2 Vcore and all the other settings you recommended. Temperatures are high 60s per CoreTemp (ASUS AISuite lags behind and is a few degrees low). Obviously I intend to run the stress testing for much longer than 20 minutes, but based upon the other overclocks I've seen for the 5930k, I'd expect the overclock to have been unstable from early on. RAM is at 2666MHz and Uncore is at 3100MHz. Perhaps my uncore being so low is helping?

RAM is at 2666MHz and Uncore is at 3100MHz. Perhaps my uncore being so low is helping?

Let me do a few tests and send you my Vcore settings for Power Saving (dynamic Vcore) I didn't really use to doing this. biggrin.gif But I'll get back at you soon.


As for your core at 45/1.2V, There's a reason why I set 1.2 for you to target as I literally find 1.3 excessive for aiming 4.5GHz. My chip can do Realbench at 4.5 under 1.2V biggrin.gif If you fear it's unstable, try to move the Voltage down 0.010 at a time and see how low it will hold up to or, go 46 and see if the chip chugs on. My current chip does it at 1.24. But takes a bit more for 4.7GHz.

It usually takes 0.010V /100MHz/Core at efficient level or about 0.060 for 6-Core and 0.080 for octas. If you are seeing more than that to stabilize another 100MHz from previous point, then the chip goes into a wall. The further it goes, the larger the Voltage scaling required.

Do an HWBot H265 Encoding at 4K at High Priorities at X2 Overkill for a stronger Core Stress. Pass 2 runs and Proceed to tuning the Cache. Aim for 40 and over under 1.25V and AIDA64 Cache Stress Isolated for 2 Hours

You can enable Manual VCore for now while Testing. Set 1.2VCore/1.25 Cache and test. You might have a golden 5930K. thumb.gif

I appreciate the help! I don't expect you to test voltages for me, though! I just don't want the motherboard using an Auto setting as an excuse to fry some component I'm not paying attention to. What I have for settings now keeps max performance at all times, so for chip longevity I'd like it to scale down when I'm not going full bore on usage. But, settings to do that are confusing to me as I cannot find an LLC 6 (what does that stand for?) or a specific cstate option to match what is shown in the guide.

I got called into work, putting an end to my overclocking vacation. I probably won't be able to get back to it until this weekend. In preparation of solidifying my OC and to be safe, can anyone else confirm that they leave all those other voltages to auto (PLL, PCH, etc.)? Or is it safer to figure an exact voltage?

Was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. I just recently found my stabe core frequency overclock of 4.5ghz with a vcore of 1.285 and cpu input voltage of 1.95. Passed two 8 hour runs of occt and rendered a video at 1440p for 8 hours. Problem is when i set xmp for my ram i crash in occt. Help?

1. Use Manual Timings emulating your kit's XMP profile.

2. Try a higher VCCSA or VDimm.

I dont think you need VCCIN 1.95v unless your overclock your cache?
