Vcore is the only voltage you need to really pay attention to leaving the rest on auto for now is fine. Don't worry about Vid. As far as the bios showing current voltage that is just the voltage the CPU is set to currently and even if you change it in bios that number won't change until the computer is reset.

Thank you LLC5 helped a lot with getting readings more up to what I have set it to. Are there any other crucial options like it I should change from auto?

Not really. There are a couple things you can change such as power phases and current limits which may help a little bit but really at this point I would just play with the OC and if you are 99% stable then maybe use those to see if it can get that last 1%

so quick question. I have a 6700k currently clocked at 4.6 at 1.35 Vcore. Everything is running stable so far. Questions is, am i safe to pump it up more? I game mabey 3 times a week when i get the chance and its usually for a good long while those days. Just curious what the safe max voltage i can run. And before anyone asks im running a Kraken x61 CPU cooler and so far temps during gaming have not gotten any higher than the low 50s C.

Because it over-clocks the ring ratio, ram and basically everything else. Plus the performance is better with a mixture. 4.8ghz on multi is weaker than using both. I just can't figure out why it won't overclock when the bios says it is at 117BCLK

I'd keep testing up to 1.45V.

OK ill try and keep testing. My only confusion was in the BIOS on my MSI z170a gaming m5 board whenever i select any vcore from 1.36 and higher the numbers turn red...IS that something to worry about or just ignore it?

I also don't replace hardware very often so I would like to keep the lifetime intact so I can keep this build for a good3-5 years. So, I assume, as long as I don't go over 1.45 I should be fine?

just passed asus realbench @ 4.9ghz 1.43v

I noticed in hwinfo while doing realbench it pulled 1.456v

but while gaming just in crysis 3 for about an hour only 1.44v pulled

I have heard people say in the past asus realbench does pull more volts etc and once stable you can put the volts down a notch

but happy to report stable in crysis 3 which for me is one of the most intense game when it comes to stressing the GPU/CPU

temps stayed under 69c also which surprised me..

glad I finally got the 4.9ghz but probably will revert back to 4.8ghz @ 1.35v for daily like before tongue.gif

Using BCLK will increase the cache speed multi and ram speed but I'm pretty sure that's all. Pcie is no longer linked. It has also been tested using a BCLK of 200 in order to match the speeds of using a BCLK of 100 and performance should be the exact same. Speed is speed doesn't matter how you get there.

Ok I have found good candidate settings for overnight stress test. If they are stable I will probably move on tomorrow to RAM OC but before that I would like to set adaptive vcore. Could you please give me some hints how should I tackle adaptive?

If i understand correctly once set and tested for stability it will allow for correct c-states and general power saving while limiting max vcore to my previous manual settings?

Thanks
