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
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_Edited by Zaen - 11/7/15 at 11:44am
