I think I might have got a bad one, since +.10 voltage offset only gives me about 1.39.

1.210... nice! My best was/is 1.235.

IMHO, this has to be the VID Intel programs into the chip after their binning process. It's widely accepted Intel uses linpack to test the chips at stock speed and just like in overclocking, some will need more voltage than others to run at stock speed. It's all a result of the black art of putting a bazillion transistors on a silicon wafer thinner than a strand of human hair.


Edit: actually its 995 million transistors on the 2600K. So, core 0 on my chip has roughly the same amount of transistors as there are people in the US. Mind boggling.

@ChunkyBowser... Well next time your in BIOS take a look and see what it shows...

My first xxxC106 had the 1.21v RqVc so I went back (twice) to see if I could get an even stronger sample but they both turned out to be weaker. I'm now in the process of selling off the other two.

Well, just looked after I updated to BIOS 126, it's requesting 1.235. Not too bad.

0. Update to BIOS 126.

1. Shut it down and take the dimms out of slots 1 & 3. This will help determining if RAM is holding you back.

2. Reset CMOS

3. Change only the following in BIOS: Power limit 1 watts 120, Power limit 2 watts 130, turbo multipliers all to 40.

4. Save and go back into the ONE page, what's the request VCORE now?

If it's back to the 1.24 range, proceed with:

5. Test with prime95 small FTTs for 15-20 minutes.

6. Back in BIOS, up only the turbo multipliers by one, repeat 5

7. If necessary, add OFFSET to +.02 to +.05 up to +.07 until you can do step 5 with multi at 45x.

I have done that exact process 3 different times and gotten to 46x without fail.

If your request vcore is still at 1.34 after steps 1 & 2, I'd consider a replacement.

Worth a shot.
After step four, cpu request vcore is 1.255v and ram is showing 1t in cpu-z. I'm going to follow your other steps now and will post my results. Home from work on dinner break currently.

update - after 17.5 minutes of small FFT's -
Biostar Green Power Utility shows -
cpu voltage/1.272v/1.284v (changes)
watt/93.732w/95.016w (changes)
amp/73.00a/74.00a (changes)

max core temps are 54/60/59/61

Now I have something to look forward to when I get home.

Great... just great. Ever since I did a BIOS update my RAM has been stuck at 1T no matter what settings I choose. I even flashed back and no change. >_>

I think I also enabled PLL voltage override. I'm still going to mess with some of the settings though and see if I'm still stable without PLL adjustments.
ahhh yeah that's a nice batch i think, ive seen others with similar batch that had good OC's

mine's L040B305

I might go pick up another chip whenever i'm feeling not lazy & swap it in

i wonder if other mobos show "request vcore" or just the biostar?

My 1.250v request core chip seems to run x45 multi with offset vcore +020v...

You may need around +030...?

I don't think so... I know that my ASrock does not.

If you absolutely want 2T, then put two sticks in dimm slots 1 & 2, or 2 & 4. Leave BIOS command rate setting to AUTO and check with CPU-Z.

They're in 2 and 4, and I've even tried manually putting in 1T with no results. Anyway, I've been folding with them at 1T for a while and they seem stable.
