Upon testing the stability I ran into some strange things. While running stress test Intel XTU shows the core voltage is 1.22 max despite the fact I have set the voltage to static 1.39 in bios. I have also confirmed using AIDA64 that this voltage is shown there also? what gives there is no way it is achieving those speeds on that voltage. I dont buy it. Any ideas whats up?

That's probably your VID, not your Vcore.

Ahh yes you are correct I think. Im interested in seeling how I fared in the silicon lottery. What is the best way to test this?
post #5623 of 11289
i have a gigabyte gamng g1 mobo and 6700k , is 1.35 volts ok for a 4.6 / 4.7ghz oc , whats the max voltage that is safe . any other options in the bios needs to be changed or should leave every thing at default.

XTU reports a low voltage for me too. I just think you should ignore it.

Yup agreed. So far tuning stress test I'm 100% stable at 4.8 running 1.404V according to CPUz although I have heard this could be reporting incorrectly on the Skylake chips? Either way seems stable but even under water cool (h100igtx) I'm hitting upwards to 84C...toasty. Using gelid gc extreme but have some grizzly coming soon. If that doesn't cool it off I may send it off and get it delidded. I would rather do it myself but the thin pcb has me worried.

I keep seeing the delid tool which seems like a fool proof way to delid but unfortunately I can't find a seller in the US and I do not have access to a 3D printer anymore frown.gif.

Using Asus Z170i Pro Gaming board in my ITX build.

Don't think I'm happy with getting that hot, will either see if it'll work with lower voltage at 4.5 or lower the OC a bit.

Or get a better cooler.. Cant really complain with easily hitting 4.5 with the small Cryorig m9i (212 evo too tall for my case!) costing GBP 16 delivered though.

I've delidded 3770K/4770K/4790K/6700K with only a single edge razor and (sometimes with) a small vice. If you carefully work around the corners with the razor eventually it will loosen up enough to remove the IHS. Usually after getting some traction with the razor blade I use the vice to separate it but it's not absolutely necessary if you are careful and patient. Patient being the operative word here. There are tutorials plenty to be found.
But if you don't go for it I can't really blame you for not risking your investment. thumb.gif

Do not spread the paste. Apply a pea sized ball in the very center of the CPU and allow the pressure applied by installing the cooler spread the paste. This will eliminate uneven areas and air bubbles.

This have been talked about since forever. If you're using "ordinary" thermal paste then the method of how you apply it seems to not matter at all. At least not in any of the videos I've seen.
