I've got 4.4GHz with water cooling. In CPUZ it says my actual voltage at idle is 1.44v, but in bios it is set at 1.46875v. Prime95 peaks at 78C.

I've got 6GB of ram. QPI/VTT is at 1.335v. If you have 12GB you'd need more.

When I bench, I use 1.61 in bios, but that can show up as 1.63 in cpuz sometimes.

I've been running these sorts of voltages for a year now and hit 5001MHz a few days ago. My chip is alive and well. For all the mad overclocking that goes on at this site, I still haven't read of a first hand overvoltage death.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, "The reports of CPU death are greatly exaggerated"

Ah - the QPI thing makes sense. No wonder I kept getting these memory bsods on boot. What is safe QPI/VTT (intel spec) and what would you recommend (roughly) that I use? My modules are spec'd to be run at 1.5V if that matters.

Sweet, that also means, I'm somewhat more free to unleash the CPU vcore. Its just that every time I start seeing pink lettering for voltages in my bios (1.3+v), I get scared and bump them back down until they're yellow again (normal is blue). And if its red (1.4+v)...lets not go there.

I'd probably run DRAM at 1.66v or nearest equivalent. With 12GB you may need 1.35-1.45 QPI/Vtt. May not run at "Intel Spec", which i think stops at 1.355v? Someone correct me if wrong there.

If you have it set to reboot automatically on errors, you can still check what the bsod was by clicking "details" on the error box that comes up after logging in. There is also a free version of "WhoCrashed" that will tellyou what your last few crashes were.

BSOD codes for overclocking
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease vcore or QPI/VTT...have to test to see which one it is
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r

Basically work your way up until 124 bsods stop. Start from the bottom, because too much qpi can cause bsods too at this level. "Tight" ram timings and speeds above 1600MHz are generally more demanding.

Look into some aftermarket cooling, its cheaper than replacing burned up hardware...

The Noctua NH-D14 or Corsair H70 are simple units that do very well...

Where abouts in upstate NY? I grew up in a little town just south of Albany, Kinderhook...

rochester... waaayyyy UP state lol

i went with th cm212+ for cooling btw

Should get about 4.00GHz safely at ambients around 22C then. You'll know by Prime95 temps after 15 minutes.

Isn't running 1.5v ram at 1.66v probably a bad idea?

Also, I try to keep my ram running at speeds closest to what it's rated at. But I'll try working with the QPI in the next couple days.

Get cpuz, click on the spd tab. What voltage and timings does it suggest?

Your RAM, sure its not PC3-16000, which is 2000MHz RAM?

Intel Spec is 1.35v on both QPI & VTT and its 1.55v on the CPU Core, I try not to go over that....

Well considering that winter is basically all year long here, i guess its the perfect tiime to oc now! lol


Strange how it was 85 one day and 35 two days later in the same week!

There's GOT to be some hard facts supporting our high suicide rate up here..Seriolusly. Its rediculous...especially that nasty brown snow on the sides of the road, its here till may every year!


@ 10acejed Then 4.0 it shall be!
(nuked something with the last cooler install,and didnt "feel" like troubleshooting lol)
