I've been doing it simple. Right now I'm just going with multiplier set to 47, vcore at 1.35, LLC at 5 and adaptive mode +
Last time I tried to make som changes I just tried multiplier and my cooling solution wasn't as good as it is now and the vcore and the temps in load wasn't what I was looking for. This time I thought I'd take a look at bclk, but before I do that I'd like to hear your opinions.
If I go bclk 104 with multiplier at 46 I'd end up at 4784, cache clock of 4160 and fclk of 832. Would you recommend me to change various other things as well or can I leave SA and VCCIO untouched since they affect ram... or am I getting this wrong?
I am in no way a skylake pro as I really have only been properly working on mine for the last 9 hrs or so but I will try and give some advice (hopefully some people who are more pro can back me up or suggest other things)
I would highly recommend starting with the simplest overclocking as much as possible, find your max speeds for your determined thresholds (voltage and temp wise) and then tweak them.
This is what I have been doing.
The simplest and most stable solution for finding these perimeters is taking it in baby steps that you are comfortable with by carefully increasing your multiplier and voltage with the appropriate testing.
I am unsure of what motherboard you have, however these are the basics I would suggest.
Set your Bclk to 100, multiplier eventually to your desired achieved speed and your voltage in manual mode BELOW what your max comfortable level is and tighten the LLC. *at least on my board the LLC will over volt your cpu to compensate voltage drop under intense loads so the higher you raise this setting the more it will increase the voltage at times above your set manual cpu voltage. (more or less depending on your mobo)
Keep playing around with this until you find something very close to being stable...
Once you are almost stable is when I would suggest you move into more in depth mobo adjustments. (tweaking of Bclk, multiplier and moving over to adaptive or offset voltage regulation. (bear in mind that again your LLC effects the voltage adjustments so find that "ratio" for your particular motherboard.
Ensure you do this all with everything set to absolute stock speeds. (your gpu, ram, etc)
eventually you will find your particular cpu's sweet spot for what you are trying to achieve and can move onto making adjustments to optimize all your other speeds like ram, etc etc
(Keep in mind that despite your goal being to up Your Bclk speed right off the bat, you have a higher chance of failing a test due to other factors (such as ram speed increase beyond optimal, etc) and my way mentioned above is the simplest way of narrowing down specific issues)
Hope this helps
