Just for the sake of it, here are my current settings:

VID = 1.2500V
Motherboard = EP45-UD3P (Rev. 1.6)

If you'd like to change anything to hopefully go for 4.50 GHz, then let's go for it! However, this vCore is already resulting in 1.456V idle, and 1.408V load.


Edit: I am going to log off now and take a shower and shave which usually takes a complete total of 1.5 - 1.75 hours, so I'm going to run the Small FFTs test during that time.

Just in case you're wondering why it takes me that long, I prefer to air dry after towel-drying because I don't like shaving and sweating at the same time.

It only lasted 7 minutes, so I raised the PLL back to 1.61 and I'm going to try again.

ok, i can get initial stable with x8.5 multi, but not 9x.

i cant work out the 3 reference settings, CPU, MCH & MCH/DRAM so i set them to auto

can some one let me know what i should set them at or how to work them out, and review the rest of my settings to help me make 4ghz (9x 445)

thanks

So I raised the CPU Termination to 1.320V (for the sake of scaling up the References), and I also raised the PLL to 1.610V, and then the Small FFTs test ran for 53 minutes (46 minutes longer than before) until Core 0's worker stopped.

So this time I am raising the PLL to 1.630V and I'll try again soon. With the CPU Term at 1.320V, the CPU Reference is scaled to 0.861V, and the MCH Reference is scaled to 0.816V.

Okay.

Got up this morning and Prime95 was still stable on small FFTs. I had decided to turn LLC off again, and had the VCore at 1.212. Opened up Firefox to go to OCN, BSOD memory error.

Rebooted, VCore now at 1.218, upped memory voltage slightly to 1.92v, and started running Prime again. I'll leave it for the day, and see what happens.

When you increased the vCore, is the resulting load voltage perfectly identical to what it is when LLC is enabled?

Whenever I get memory errors, it is solved by going a couple notches up in vcore

You can probably get away with setting the references to auto to start with, but you'll eventually probably want to tweak them some
Set your VTT to 1.2. Then set the default CPU and MCH refs (.76 I believe?). Then raise your VTT. The refs automatically scale with that. Now, whenever you change these refs, make sure that VTT is at 1.2

Also, raise your MCH core a couple notches. The MCH is a bit finnicky, and in my experience, needs quite a bit of power to get it stable.

You might want to try for 4.3 first so you can have some type of baseline to work off of other than 4.0 and to see how this chips scales.

Rebooted, VCore now at 1.218, upped memory voltage slightly to 1.92v, and started running Prime again. I'll leave it for the day, and see what happens.
1.92vdimm is like the 1.32vtt setting, it doesnt work, no affect on actual voltage

Not exactly.

When you enable LLC, the voltage stays steady regardless of what you do --I think that's the whole point of LLC. If you don't have LLC enabled, the voltage can shift.

When I open up CPU-Z on startup, the initial load voltage appears --I think that's the maximum it will go up to. However, after the system is on a bit, the CPU voltage drops some, even if Prime95 is on and maxing all four cores.

I have taken VCore past what it would have been had LLC would have been if I'd stayed with startup VID as my VCore (I'm now at 1.225 in BIOS). It is stable so far. Despite that, temperatures seem to be a little lower (say 2C) than if I had LLC on and the lower startup voltage.

One other note: CPU-Z reports a lower voltage than what is set in BIOS for VCore. I may be set at 1.225v, but it is reporting 1.136 right now (the highest I've had is 1.168v at startup). When using LLC on stock VID (1.1875v) CPU-Z reported 1.152v.
