Skylake 6600k and GA-Z170-HD3P overclocking question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

just got my 6600k CPU and the GA-Z170-HD3P gigabyte board.
I know the gigabyte isn't a powerful OC board.
I am only trying to get it around 4.2-4.4

However, when I going into the bios, trying to do a manual OC, I don't see the option letting me change the CPU Frequency, or CPU V-core.

This is my first gigabyte intel board, can anybody help me?

thanks

Ok, just did some research and figure I will have to input the numbers.

one more question, doing prime95 stress test, CPU-Z is showing 1.15v core voltage and HWmonitor is showing as high as 1.6v CPU vcore, and 1.333v VID

is there something wrong?
Might this be a motherboard issue or power supply issue?

Use hwinfo 64, and if it displays it there as well, CPU voltage is way too high.

under hwinfo,

vcore is only 1.164v max
VID is from 1.259v-1.327v

this is overclocked to 4.2ghz, turbo boost off, all power saving off.
temps are max 60c with hyper 212 evo

I am kind of confused.

Different software showing different results...

should I also try aida64?

VID is pretty much a static voltage set by the offset or manual cpu voltage that you set in the bios), the voltage you need to keep a look on is Vcore, VID doesn't seem to fluctuate on my CPU when idling. But Vcore does, infact it's going to as low as 0.096v for me (got power saving settings stuff on).

So hwinfo64 is showing correct results.

thanks man, i am still running prime 95 to test out the system.
this is why I have all the power saving off.
Will have it back on after the burn in test.

Hey guys, i just wanted to know if one of you have done the latest Bios update (F21) which bring some Vcore ajustement / optimisation as Gigabyte claim on their site, does it improved your OC capabilities ?

I can go up to 5Ghz (1.505vcore, shown as 1.488 in CPU-Z) with my 6700K with the bios that came with my mobo.

i wonder if i'll need less vcore for the same speed with the F21 bios... whistle.gif

The f21 bios made the auto overclock of 4.4ghz bsod while f6 bios previous had no issue going auto overclock at 4.4ghz. The new f21 bios I have to mess around the voltage in order to get that speed. I'm not much of a overclocker, so it was the easiest for me to just have a given preset of what the cpu can do for me.
