2500K overlock voltage questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all - bought a gtx 1060 and it will be here in a bit but I decided I would try to bump up the OC on this baby in the mean time. All has gone well so far and all stability test (intel burn on max) have gone well. 0 bsods, temps max out in mid to low 70s, and no freezes; however, I have some questions about voltages

I have vcore set to 1.305, PLLovervoltage disabled, C3/c6 disabled, EIST disabled, C1E disabled, and LLC set to 5 (middle).

When I idle, the vcore is for some reason at 1.344 per CPUID HW monitor with 0% load...about 40 degrees temp.

there is very little vdroop (from what vcore is set to in bios) under the max burn test...vcore goes down to 1.296...im not concerned about that since vcore is set at 1.305. My questions is: why is my vcore so high at idle and 0 load? I tried upping to LLC to 6 and 7, both times idles went up in vcore. I also tried lowering it to 3 and while idle vcore dropped, under load vcore was getting down there...to like 1.25ish. There just seems to be such a range that its operating within.

So in summary

5 LLC - 1.305Vcore set in bios results in 100% load vcore of 1.296 and idle vcore of 1.34
4 LLC - 1.305vcore set in bios results in 100% load vcore of 1.26 and idle vcore of 1.32
7 LLC - 1.305vcore set in bios results in 100% load vcore of 1.32 and idle vcore of 1.35-6

I'm running gigabyte z68x board

Attached are pictures of my bios settings and pics of idle and under load

thanks!

Is that on fix manual vcore? You have to use offset mode if you want lower idle vcore and enable at least c1e.

It's on Manual Mode, yeah. I'm not going to use Offset because so far, Manual Mode is always more stable and provides me with slightly better performance. I just have a bad overclocker, as confirmed by many other experts on here. I'm ok with it though. :)

I'am on the same boat as you. Just got myself an used i7 3770k. I manually set it to 1.23 vcore 4.3ghz and nope , I'am not gonna bother finding the perfect offset settings.

I had nearly-perfect offset settings. Except, when I finally decided to try Manual Mode as an experiment, Windows started up slightly faster and a couple of very weird and obscure problems disappeared. I also could've sworn some of my games ran a little smoother.
