I believe the default for most of the X58 SLI boards is 1.20v for the VTT, so +250mV = 1.45v, which is a tad bit over what intel lists the max on the datasheets.

If you download evga's "eleet" program it has a voltage tab that shows all the voltage settings, or if you have a Multi Meeter you can test the actual voltage on the motherboard itself, that is actually the most accurate way to get voltage readings.

One thing I have noticed with the 9x0 series cpu's is that a lower vcore = higher vtt and visa versa. So if your vcore is low, you may want to try bumping it up a few spots and then try lowering the VTT... Intel list the max vcore at 1.55v, so we have alot more headroom for safe vcore than we do with VTT.
Sorry, I tried lowering the VTT and then I couldn't get into bios, lost all my settings on the cmos reset. Anyway, my method is to turn off VDroop and manually set vcore to 1.21875 then just keep raising blck and testing for stability.

With vtt set to auto is how I got to +250mV, this time I left the auto settings and I'm thus far stable at 3.4GHz. I'll post back if something changes.

Hey guys are there any watercooling blocks for the vreg on the e758? I can only find 1 full cover block and its made by enzotech.

THat screen shot show vdroop on, "Without VDroop" would be if you dont want VDroop, and "With VDroop" if you want it.

Also when overclocking I dont suggest all the "Auto" settings, many will agree. Leaving them on auto has been known to cause them to auto adjust too high when you start changing Frequencies

Set them all to the defaults, you could bump the QPI up to 1.35v if your running the ram at 2000MHz, check your ram specs, I would think those vipers require 1.65v, the rest can be set to the defaults, just set them manually rather than Auto.
Set the VTT to +250 and then check with a program like HWMonitor, Everest or Eleet to see what it reads at.


If you save bios profiles they should still be there after resetting cmos. I know when I try some high OC's for benching and have to reset it always works.
Did you happen to check hardware monitoring to see what voltage its running at? If you happen to have a board that defaults the VTT at 1.10 then +250mV would be perfectly normal making your VTT voltage right around 1.35.

One of these? Mosfet Block (Vreg)Design for EVGA Intel X58 SLI Main Board

There is also -
EK-FB KIT EVGA X58 Full Board Northbridge/Southbridge this one is actually a 2 piece, one for the NB/SB and another for the Vreg, but they are not sold separately.



Hope this helps

I understand
I was hoping you would find some error in my original method which led to the high vtt. The picture is just to show what I'm running at currently.

Words to overclock by, that has to be how the vtt got so high. I'll set that back to no vdroop and set everything to manual this time around.

I've never set the ram to spec, it came with the motherboard, cpu and heatsink. I've only been interested in overclocking the cpu and haven't had time to explore much more. I haven't rebooted into windows yet, I'll check those programs out when that happens... at some point. Do you recommend overclocking with that Eleet program?

I did save it as a profile, good to know that it stays, but I almost want to start over again with everything set to manual. I'll keep you posted.

edit: Probably be more on top of this overclocking if I didn't like playing music on my computer (stereo is hooked up to it)

You have the hardware needed to OC. Not sure what else ou do on the system, audio or video editing will be quicker with added OC, doesnt seem like you game.. For basic every day use you may be fine at your current settings.

There are bios templates on page one of this thread if you need some pointers on bios settings...

But still as far as you original question, the VTT seems high. Try some other settings, with "Without VDroop" it may help you lower it as well. But check with software to see what its actually at now...

Finally rebooted, I opened up cpu-z and my core voltage was at 1.47V

Lowered it down to 1.46V with that eleet program you recommended and ran prime, core temp stayed under 75C but than the voltage jumped up to 1.49V and temp jump to ~90C across all cores! I'm rebooting now to make sure vDroop is turned off. I thought I already did tho while turning everything to manual.

This seems too wacky, I set it manually to 1.21875V! Also, unless it's related to these voltage jumps, my VTT is 1.20V (with +0mV set).

I play Starcraft 2, Halo, Diablo, minecraft, Portal 1 & 2 and downloaded TF2 not too long ago. I'm also learning Blender on my own. I don't game as much as I did in high school but I still get my fix

Yeah, something seems way wrong. If you set manually CPU Voltage to 1.21875v in bios, and set "Without VDroop" you should see somewhere between 1.21 - 1.22v in CPU-Z for you voltage. If its "With VDroop" it may be down around 1.18v or so in CPU-Z or the CPU Tab in E-Leet.

But no way should it be anyway near 1.4v...

ELeet shows defaults and current voltages..


You can see in the "Voltages" tab the settings in bios and the defaults to the right...

Even tho I set CPU Vcore to 1.38 in bios and VTT to 1.25 (+150 for mine) the "Without VDroop" feature adds voltage to them for some reason. "With VDroop" and the drop an equal amount.

Things are looking up for me, updated the bios and it seems to be better. Still rises .02V while stressing but that is not nearly as bad as before. All the same settings as before (manual and no Vdroop) and I'm working my way back up through the gigahertz. Wish me luck and thanks for the troubleshooting help!

Edit the before:

WOW

3.3 and 1.47v??????

WHY?

I have my 920 @ 4.2 and only need 1.35v?
