ouch! guys thanks! got mine lpx 3200 mhz sticks 16gb x 2 works at 3000+
80ohm ProcODT

Yea no go without bclk still. If the next major update doesn't change anything. I'll either go buy different ram or just go x299 as I originally planned. rolleyes.gif

Don't know if this was mentioned anywhere.. I thought it was just for Bclk overclocking, but the 1.8v PLL voltage setting has a major effect on what your CPU (Tctl) reading is. at 1.75 CPU (Tctl) is 26c at minimum, at 2v CPU (Tctl) doesnt go below 45c

1.7v CPU (Tctl) goes down to 7c...

This also effects CPU temp reading given by the MB.

I really wouldn't be messing too much with PLL. Leave it at 1.8v. So rare that PLL will need to be raised, and like you noticed, makes your heat go through the roof.

but not truely. CPU temp "raises" but my water temp remains the same. I've been running it at 2.0v for t he longest because that what Auto was giving me when I was doing standard overclocking. It only started autoing to 1.8 when I started Pstate overclocking with the new bios's.

and theres no way a 7c reading is correct.

My chip could be running at 80c, and my water temp will still stay within 6 to 10c delta of ambient, not really a good metric to measure heat.

Try locking it at 1.8v. You don't want voltages set to auto that get raised when you overclock. Boards almost always use too much voltage.

All right, I also have the problem in the BIOS. I did a clear CMOS, but the led strip isnt synchronize with the motherboard. (yes, I tried a calibration and it was working on previous bios)

see now my water temp dont get that low, its around 23c idle. My water temp doesnt make any change then either. So, 7c can't be right. Ive seen screens of people running that voltaged lower than 1.8 volts. I once again dont trust the temps !

I guess it depends on your cooling capacity. It takes a lot of constant heat from both my cpu and gpu to raise my water temp a few deg c from where it idles at.

From what I read raising the 1.8 pll is for when you're doing much higher BCLK increases, like above 150, and 'Intel' set a suggested limit of 1.9v, not to exceed 2v. I doubt any damage was done by auto setting it to 2v. after all i seem to have golden parts.

You doin that ice bucket thing to get your water temp to 10c? redface.gif
