I am attempting to OC my 950 incrementally until I get a Stable OC profile for 3.68Ghz Then for 3.8-4Ghz and 4Ghz plus If I can. Whats the average Qpi Cpu etc. voltages for stock speeds? I had mine on Auto for the most part to begin with. The QPI was set at 1.375 by my board. Is that way higher than I actually needed for stock speeds? I had it OC'd at about 3.8Ghz for a while with Auto voltages on everything exept my RAM. I went back to stock speeds becasue I Crashed during intel burn testing. I got High temps too (into the 80's core) I started crashing at stock speeds after that. Bad RAM was the cause But Now I want to try again. Can't find a good Guide for OCing this Cpu yet and haven't been able to find out what the low end of stock voltages seem to be either. Can anyone Help?

Yeah I wnt through it already. It doesn't tell me what low or even lowish stock voltage would be for my processor. Also I want to leave my multi at 23. I have gotten stable now at 3.68GHz at reasonably low voltages. I'm still concerned about my CPU temp though. Cores in core temp are 10degrees higher than CPU temp in asus utility and that has changed each time I reinstal PC Probe 2. I'm actually getting concerned that I have a bad temperature Sensor or somthing.

CPU
@ Stock - 1.18v
@ 3.3Ghz - 1.21v
@ 3.6Ghz - 1.23
@ 3.8Ghz - 1.26
@ 4.0Ghz - 1.3 (this one can and usually is completely random though) more than likely before you get to this stage you will need some QPI voltage 1.37v is fine for the speed you have it right now when i did have my 920 i used go up to 1.5v QPI without trouble for a 4.5Ghz oc with 1.48vcore

Thanks for the info. I've been looking for somthing more like this. Does the 950 need more or the same voltages for these speeds? Or is this the only a 920 template?

looks about right. i only think the amount of multis is the difference.

These are just for a rough idea mime hits 4ghz with less volts so you might get lucky to.

Here's a great guide still refer back to it myself once in a while

And yeah you might want to upgrade your cooling

usely you can lower all but the vcore and qpi/vtt to the lowest value (default) up
to around 4ghz. sometimes ioh/nb needs a little bump to but not as much as the
first two. passing >4ghz at 24 hour stability with that though might be different story.

my V-8 is a little hot on temps but I think my core to CPU temps are off. 10degrees different? I lost a couple of degrees picking the thing up off the floor this morning. All the airflow comes from underneath in this thing if I dont open the front door panel. Asus Fanxpert says I'm at 31 Idle and my cores are 40-42
in core temp? Is somthing wrong with this?
