Help needed with overclocking i7 7700k to 5.0 GHz - Page 3

post #21 of 41
May I suggest:

Save your settings as they are.
Your M7 gives you a click-enabled (button 8) instant 5.0GHz. This is all hard-coded in the BIOS and is reasonably stable, going for stability over performance.
Click it and run a CPU-Z benchmark, hit [submit] and look at the reported temp on the report.

What is that temp?
If it's not outrageous, run some tests. Can it pass RealBench? Maybe try something easier like cinebench first...
How does it run?

Run through the UEFI and make note of the settings available.
Run HWiNFO64 while benching and take notes.
Those settings and that info should give you an idea of temps to expect and settings for stability.

Got it stable with 1.35vcore and cache at x45 with XMP enabled.
I got in contact with the guy that was testing the chip and he recommended some settings.
I regret that I went with an MSI board, looks like those need much more voltage for stable OC.
Thank you, everyone, for help.

William of Ockham might disagree with your bolded conclusion.

You're always welcome for the help. thumb.gif


Care to share your settings?

Glad you got it sorted out thumb.gif 5Ghz is not that hard to achieve with a 7700K about 60% will be able to achieve 5Ghz at different voltage levels, personally Im not a big fan of MSI boards in general but keep in mind the Apex board your CPU was binned on is an exceptional overclocking board and probably not a good choice to be binning chips on from a business point of view.

I'm still not sure on the LLC settings for this board so I left it at auto for now:


any suggestions?

For LLC I would try mode 4 and see how much Vdroop that gives you under load, the idea being to try and keep your Vcore under load as close as you can to what you set it to in your UEFI.

and what is GT LLC for?

I would say GT LLC would be LLC for the graphics core (IGP) leave that on auto should be fine, if you are not using the IGP disable it all together, that may drop your temps a bit.

I will have to look around in that msi bios to find the settings to turn off the integrated graphics, thank you for the help kind sir!
