I am going to try that guide that NoGuru linked I let you know how it goes.

Sorry it posted twice some how, feel free to delete one of them

You just let it keep restarting and after 2-3 times it will reboot and say OC fail. Your OC settings will still be there. Just wait for it to fail to boot, it might take a few seconds but it will restart.

Here it is, hopefully it works as an attachment.

Errr I meant on the Tuner tab, so we could see what all those auto voltages were.. Any chance of another pic, pliz? (Tuner/Advance/Voltage1)

Would be most obliged if you could...

Wow, looks like CPU core is nearly stock volts, no wonder it's running so cool!

no, wait that can't be so, CPUZ is showing core voltage at 1.392...

What are those numbers in easy tune then?

I'm seeing cpu volts of 1.4v there. Target column says what bios is set to. Still interesting that your temps are lower though. The other two that changed with auto, qpi of 1.535v and ioh of 1.32v. That's likely yr 12GB ram.

Thank you for taking the time to do that. I may experiment with that a little. Much appreciated.


I just had a surprise of my own turning on ET6. I was on my 4.2 profile using DVID and ET6 said my vcore was 1.5125v. My Normal is supposed to be 1.1625v AFAIK (The figure next to [Normal]?) and my add was .15 to get 1.3125v, but obviously not right, so just changed it to a plain straightforward 1.3125v. I'll have to research that DVID some more...

Arrrrh, Kirkman's post - about lower temperatures on auto - that went against what I thought I knew, so have been testing it out.


Ninja Edit: Retesting showed that temp drop was an unexplainable phenomena unconnected to auto settings. So I got that wrong, wrong, wrong.

I'm going to have to play with it more as I get the chance, but sure found that interesting. Probably all fired up over nothing though. Go on. Burst my balloon.
Alan! Well, perhaps I was overly excited for nothing, yesterday went by in a flash and I tried so many different things.. As you know there are so many factors involved and with unique components and cooling, etc, etc.- was my first shot at an i7 overclock, thought maybe I stumbled onto something. Somehow it's working on this rig so I'm gonna leave it be, at least for now..

Will try plugging in those numbers manually at a notch or two down and see if it holds at some point. Does anyone know if the auto setting actually changes anything on the fly (when under load), when set to level one or two? Or does it just pick the settings and they stay put?

Can relate to the time factor, would love more research and analysis, I'm certain I could hit 4.4, especially if I were able to settle for 6GB of ram.

Anyways, very happy to have a stable system at 4.2, more than I hoped for to begin with. Hopefully the ram set up at a lower bandwidth will suffice, can't wait to get Adobe Masters, Sonar, Vegas, etc installed. Almost tempted to try out a game or two, this is the first time I've actually owned a real video card!

I do have a question though, anyone know if it's a good idea to reinstall windows after intense overclock trial and error? Would I know it if there was file or registry corruption? Get a little nervous when windows tells me "we just recovered from a serious error"... blue screens, etc when temps edged towards 90C, or system never quite made it through booting while installing updates.. : ).

Sys file checker says ok but should probably just go ahead and do it anyways just for piece of mind before I go through the hours of installing everything- but a little concerned about unnecessarily taking performance away from the SSD..?

Well if you don't have much on the OS right now it's not a bad ideal. I sometimes have 10 to 50 BSOD's trying to benchmark and most of the time the OS is okay but it can get corupt.
If you can reinstall it might as well do it.
Reinstalling an OS is not really going to take away performance of the SSD unless you do it a bunch of times. I think I reinstalled OS's more then twenty times on mine and it still performed at great speeds.

I retested all my Oc settings against that auto idea, and found that all I really had was an unexplained temperature drop that has nothing to do with auto, so I've just made an ass of myself.

Generally I trust sfc, and don't know that you really need a re-install, but it will do no harm.
