Curious ......When benchmarking and monitoring stability tests I use dual monitors with my gtx580... I use the second monitor to watch the utilities I use for temps and load activity etc..... while the main monitor is running the benchmark tests or stability tests... Does using a second monitor significantly reduce my scores when benchmarking and running stability tests?

When I overclock my 1090BE only on multiplier, should I disable my LLC? Then enable it when I find a stable clock? Or just leave it on..

so for a 2.8 ghz to a 3.4ghz OC would I change the voltage to 1.4?

Its setting at 1.3v now on the vcore and its been like that like it was on 2.8ghz.

sometimes dipping to 1.28v

If you're unstable at the stock voltage using prime95 or some other stress-testing software, up the voltage slowly and re-test to achieve stability. If you encounter no errors running prime95 for an hour or two, no don't raise the voltage.

It depends on your processor. You may get a "Good" chip and have it reach 4Ghz on that stock voltage, or 3.7Ghz could be the highest you can go without increasing the voltage. Just keep slowly increasing the frequency until the CPU is no longer stable, then back it down a bit until it's stable again.

Depending on your particular chip, voltage requrements will vary from others. Having said that , "my sweet spot" seems to be at 3.510 with 1.420v max under load. It is important to evaluate cpu temp with each vcore increase. Make sure you do not go above your chips rated load temp.

Also be careful, because some boards have "load-line-calibration" which will adjust your voltage accordingly. Monitor as to make sure your MB is not overvolting too far.
