For 4GHz my 1700 needs 1.4375v w/ Extreme LLC or 1.45? With Turbo. The LLC Configuration is kinda broken right now, but it isn't Gigabyte's fault apparently.

My "go to" 3.925GHz Config is 19.25x Multi and 1.35v / Extreme LLC.

I need to run about 1.456V with LLC Extreme to be completely stable it seems, still good temps when liquid cooled.. And just the default XMP profile.

These chips need a lot of Voltage past a certain point.
Moar MHz=Moar VCore.

My 1700x is running 4Ghz @ 1.40 with 32GB of CL14 ram (TridentZ RGB). My 1800x runs 4Ghz @ 1.36 with the same ram. It idles at 27c and hits 55C under stress tests (It did hit 57C on Cinebench once).

My 1800x is the probably one of the best chips I have ever owned. It's superior in every way. The 1700x took a lot of coddling and testing to make it stable but once I got it there using Mus1mus' guide it's great. The 1800x is just smoother and cooler. Way easier to overclock. I could probably run it at less voltage but when I tried it at 1.35 it failed Prime at hour 4. At 1.36 it's 100% stable and cool.

*Edit - both of my chips were purchased at SL

What type of CPU cooling do you have on both of them? And do you actually have 2 Gaming K7 mobos that you're using?

Man I wish my 1700 was that good. Not being able to do 4ghz is a massivemail annoyance.

I am using the EVGA CLC 280 for cooling. I currently have 2 processors as I am building two machines. I have one K7 and one on the way so both CPUs were tested on the same system.

I was once in your shoes on other platforms. Honestly I hated getting lucky with CPUs or leaving it to chance. This time around I told myself I was going to do it the easy way and having the piece of mind that I was guaranteed to get 4Ghz was all I wanted. That's why I went the SL route. And honestly, I spent no more by going through them for a guaranteed clock speed than buying from Amazon. I paid $389 for the 1700x and $480 for the 1800x. To each their own I guess.

Wow this board corrupted my RAM



No wonder I have had issues trying to OC it.
