I put my llc to high on my Z170-Gaming 7 and for some reason it helped out with temp max temp before was 80 c at 4.8 1.4v now on high LLC 75c 4.8 1.4 is this normal is putting LLC on high the right way to go ?

My new ASUS Z170 Premium works fine, but I keep having error bF getting dislayed. The manual just lists it as 'reserved.' Does anyone know what this error truly is?

Thanks.
post #874 of 1703
Anyone else gotten the weird sound issues with the Z170 Gaming 7 yet? There are threads about it on the Gigabyte official forums. It hit me a couple days ago and is kinda annoying (though it hasn't acted up today).

Hey guys,

I'm trying to stabilize an overclock here after updating the BIOS and it's being a butthole and a half. Have any of you done actual tests with the uncore and uncore overclocking, because I'm seeing a lot of people suggest it should be the same as your clock frequency, some suggest it should be 2x your ram frequency (which would put it firmly over 5GHz) and a few who say it's useless and it's most utility is actually lowering it to get more GHz out of the core.

Personally, I had a 4.5Ghz overclock, I uncored up to 4.5 and my load temps went from 61 to 83, so I brought it way back down to 4.0. Since overclocking though, I've been getting random BSOD's and games stopping responding that I'm sure must be due to my OC and I can't pin point the culprit, whether it's core voltage, uncore, VCCIO/Agent, PCH Core, a messed app, or my actual Windows is dirty...

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, I've noticed people overclocking mostly with offset? Why? Why not just punch in your values for the vcore?

You can check out Darkwizzie's results under the section "Cache Frequency Doesn't Matter!"

uncore ratio doesn't really matter for performance and in fact, makes the system very unstable at high ratios, at least that is my experience. I can OC to 4.6, but uncore ratio above 4.4 and my system bsod's like crazy. Just don't do it. if you messed up your settings, restore them to default on the last UEFI page.

The goal would be to have uncore to be same as your core clock but due to other variables it may not be possible.

I have my core clock at 45 and my uncore at 44.

What's your Vcore for 4.5?

Offset/Dynamice Voltage is better because it will allow the CPU to operate just like it does when stock, only with a higher maximum multiplier.

If you use fixed voltage, then your CPU will always be at 4.5ghz 1.XXv and will not decrease at idle.

Yeah, I checked out the guide for it, and the performance gain from overclocked uncores was less than 2% so, I put it back.

Perhaps I'll have to check out doing that instead...

Essentially, If I'm using a 1.350v for my Vcore, would my offset simply be normal +.050?

I always start with a +0.005 offset then Ill reboot into BIOS and adjust from there.

Offset is different for every chip. Im currently running a -0.060
