It did work on my previous install, but I just got a new MoBo and CPU, therefore, a new install..

I used WinZip to open the file. Is there a better program to do it with? Don't like WinZip! thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
IDK. I've had a paid copy of WinRAR for years, but I don't think that's your problem somehow. But worth a try to use something other than WinZIP I guess.

Looking for some advice on my overclock. I got 6700k to 4.6Ghz, voltage is set to 1.36 (override) in BIOS every thing else is on auto, and ram is on stock (not XMP). Voltage in system is 1.368 Idle / 1.36 Load. I have problem with prime95 28.9 smalFFTs test, it causes soft errors (doesn't crash) usually around 20-30 minute mark (for reference, it would BSOD pretty fast on 1.35) but I'm kinda hesitant to increase voltage even more as my temperatures during this test are already averaging at 80C (and maxing at 84C). On the other hand I ran RealBench for 8h overnight and it passed without single error, with temperatures averaging around 72C (76C max).

So my question is, what would be general advice in this situation? Should I ignore prime95 test temps and increase voltage, or ignore soft errors and leave it as it is?

Quick question:

Is it normal to have 'holes' in the VCore voltage settings in BIOS?

For example; if I set my VCore to 1.335, BIOS and HWInfo show 1.35.

If I go to 1.345, 1.355, 1.365, 1.375, 1.385 they all show 1.362 in BIOS and HWInfo.

I have to go to 1.395 before BIOS and HWInfo show a change to 1.39.

For some reason Speedstep isn't working anymore. My CPU runs constantly at 4.8GHz, when before it was downclocking to 800MHz. I have no idea why it stopped working as I haven't messed around the bios, other than changing the multiplier and the voltage. I even tried to load the default settings and it still runs at the highest frequency. I tried to change the Speedstep from auto to enabled, but it didn't do anything. My CPU is the 6600K and my motherboard is Asus Z170-A.

EDIT: Solved! The problem was Asus AI Suite.

Asus AI Suite is Junk as far as I'm concerned! Always caused me problems, never installed it again, since my Sabertooth X990 R2 board...

OC the right way, use UEFI... thumb.gif

Depends on the resolution of the sensor. It's not going to be accurate to .001v, more like .016v. For example in HWINFO with .016v resolution you might see
1.360 - 1.376 - 1.392. In other words, each software step might be .016v apart, and that's due to the resolution of the sensor. To get more accurate you would need to hook up a meter/'scope.
Understand? thumb.gif

Perfectly.

I should have been more specific with my question; is it normal to have that lack of granularity?

Yes. I wasn't implying you were stupid, just if I explained in a way you understood. smile.gif

I did not take it that you were implying anything.

I should have been clearer in stating my question.
