I didn't like the red color

I'm noticing a huge drop when I start priming, going from 1.47v to 1.43V with vdroop control enabled. Gahh.

Just backed it down to 183x23 (4.2) which is one that I'd be happy with.

Prime is running test 2 without a BSOD

Not like it means anything, lol.

BTW I'm 58C load

EDIT: Lowered vCore to 1.4 (1.399 in windows)

Hmm, I'm playing with stability right now. Try bumping your DRAM a bit for the 192x23, if you want to keep it. I'm now at 196x23, looking good, but voltage is too high. I'll back it down in a bit. As for now: CPU-Z, 4.508GHz

EDIT: Oh, you might try PCIE freq of 101 or 103 (odd is better...)

Right, I think I'm gonna stabilize at the lowest Vcore I can at 4.2 today and then tomorrow I'll go for 4.4GHz.

EDIT: Lowered vCore to 1.35v (1.352-1.364v in Windows)
BSOD.
EDIT2: Raised vCore to 1.3625v (1.364-1.376v in Windows)

Um...I just saw what cooler you're running. Wow, it looks like you'll be able to go much further than me with this chip. I'll keep updating with anything I get stable though. I'm almost completely off of auto settings now. Once I achieve 4.8, I'll post all settings. Shooting for that 5.0 mark is a slow process.

Lol yeah, I haven't even touche 60C with HT on, haha.

EDIT: I though about buying 2 extra 140 radiators for this case too, getting some new GPU's and relocating the pump is my priority though.

Brb, smoke break.

I'll be upgrading to roughly the same setup after the holidays. The comp was a gift to me, the cooling will be my gift to myself. Or...better GPUs. But I'd rather wait for that and focus on the CPU. As far as I can tell, 5.0 is going to be impossible. I can't take this chip over 4.6 without hitting 55C idle. I wonder how much the cooler I have would sell for, since idk what brand it even is. All I know is that it won't do the job. Off to cruise the cooling section for a while.
