Think I settled on 24/7 overclock. 4.7 ghz just requires too much voltage over 4.6 to be worth it, so i bumped up it up .02 and upped the cache to 4.4. If 1.52 max voltage is safe then I'll bump it to 4.7 ghz.

Hey guys,

Just got myself a lovely Skylake set up.

6600k
ASUS Maximus Gene VIII
H100i GTX
16GB 2666Mhz Ram
980Ti
760W Corsair AX PSU

I set 45 multiplier and 1.35 volts on adaptive mode so that the system will run at lower voltages when it doesn't need to be pushing it.

However when I loaded in to OS my idle voltage was 1.49 volts!!! and even under load it was higher than 1.4

What's going on!??


I've also tried manual with 1.35 volts and LLC level 6 but for some reason i'm getting around 1.26 under load and 1.33 idle with this setting.

I'm confused as to why my settings are never close to what i'm setting in BIOS??


Any ideas guys would really appreictae the help as it would be madness not to overclock this system

Thanks

You just have to play with it.
Me, I would just go manual until I find a voltage setting that works. Then once you have a load voltage (hwinfo) that gets you where you want to be cpu clock wise then come back with adaptive or offset and set it up so that you get the same vlts under load. You need to play with starting volts (bios) and LLC - it takes some time but it can usually be done. Good luck! smile.gif

Hey mate so if i wanted to achieve 1.35 for example would it be better to set it high in bios knowing it will droop or am i better off adding more LLC to try and get closer to my Bios setting.

I just find it weird that the majority of guys/girls with my set up seem to be at LLC 6 and for me currently LLC 6 is around 1.26-1.28 load.

That said i'm nearly 2 hours in stress testing on real bench so could mean my chip will be stable at these lower voltages. Might aim for 1.3 volts at 4.5Ghz

Thanks for the feedback so far

Hello everyone, first time oc and first post on this community. Thanks for the input of everyone in this thread, has been helpful.

I have been following the thread since august, when i decided on what i was going to buy for this rig. Need to catch up the latest weeks for im am now ready to test some oc settings and have been very bus other wise.

So since last week i got minimum stuff to run this rig, some stuff still missing like the obvious GPU but i will get there in the next few months wink.gif

Most of my oc tuning using asus bios or Suite 3 have been falsely hopeful since all of them fail. One was on adaptive that almost burned my cpu with IBT short 5 loops pass but failed promptly with O.C.C.T. 4.4.1, voltages were up to 1.502v and 93c in 2cores.

Went manual from then on and seems i have a poor chip. although asus tuning says im good for x47 they all fail O.C.C.T simple long chain stress test. all this on 0803 bios, were i did find a stable oc at x46, 1,430v manual vcore, LLC 4 that in HW monitor showed not passing 1.424vcore during every test.

I have now updated bios to 0902 and system to win10 and im making tests as i write this on a laptop, passed OCCT simple 1h long chain 64bit cpu stress test and running realbeanch 2.4 8h cpu stress test (im at 4h and all looks good) will do x264 from this thread 8h 16T. I have tried x47 but voltage required seems to close to 1.5v to try a stable test, maybe i can get x46 with 101 bclk but by my calcs it will take about 1.45v set in bios wich i don't wanna try because of previous close call with IBT xD. So currently at x46, 100bclk, 1,415v or 1.420v manual vcore, LLC 5 i think, during OCCT HWmonitor showed 1.440v max vcore and now during realbeanch cpu stress test its steady at 1.424vcore. these settings are over my previous stable oc :s

I find these oc settings too high or i really have a bad cpu, since i see many get x46 below 1.4v stable. I had to go manual just to find the area were i would be stable around, i intend to go for adaptive or offset after testing but my bios menu is, for my bad brain, a bit confusing. On adaptive is the voltage i set in that field what is feed into the cpu? isn't it suppose to get voltage required from vid, like offset and add some more at small stages? in offset is the - 0.xxxV means i take volts i put in from vcore or does it diminish the offset bettwen vcore and vid since i know offset takes info from vid to set vcore?

Any and all input to get my x46 bellow 1.4v is very welcome and most appreciated. Thx again to all that already have shared there experience with the 6600/6700k, specially to Darkwizzie for starting this guide _o_ _o_

Processors react differently to load and voltage.
I like to run a high (little or no droop) LLC.
As long as hwinfo volts at load are under your limit (1.4, 1.45, 1.52v or whatever) keep raising your bios voltage - just keep a sharp eye on hwinfo load volts.

yep, not as good as you would like - understand - still 46x @ 1.44 is a start!!

I don't have a z170 asus board - but I would start with a asus preset for something like 48x then tone down the cpuv and maybe LLC - did you try that?

Welcome to OCN.
You may find that your cpu won't do 4.7 stable. I find it hard to believe mine won't do 4.8 stable, since all my Haswell chips did. But anyway...
Fill out the rigbuilder so we know what kind of hardware you have. thumb.gif
