Reached the limit......

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So right now, please don't relate the title to my first question.
1. I don't know if this post has been already posted but here it goes.
What is the difference between Vcore, CPU PLL Voltage and IMC Voltage? Cuz I've been trying to get a more 24/7 stable overclock lately and I don't get it, what should I tweak? As far as I know, the VCore is the main one but how about the others?

Since I have no idea what they are yet, I only tweaked my Vcore and IMC


2. So here are my current settings
Intel I5 760
BLCK =187
Multi =21
VCore = 1.225
IMC = 1.35

But I have a situation which is bugging me all the time, I can't get over 4Ghz!!!!! In this situation, the blck affects a lot, I actually increased 10% by 10% until I get to 40% which is 3.910 Ghz and I can't seem to get over it. If I accidentally increased my blck by 1, the BSOD shows up and I have to change it back to 187 again.

A few hours later, I tried to increase it to 50% which is about 4.2 Ghz( without changing the voltages first as it is a controlled variable ) and it boots!!........and hangs........and restarts. So I went to change the voltage little by little but I've reached the YELLOW color warning for my IMC and my VCore is set to 1.27 but still, nothing changed, I keep on getting the same error message until i returned it back to 3.92X Ghz..........


Please help......... I'm dying to get over 4 Ghz!!!

Here's my proofIt's like 27*c by that time.........
Nice temps eh?Idle

Full load for 6 hours

On my way out this door, but this is a great guide. I used the Bloomfield version when I was learning, check out the explainations and definitions, sorry for being so brief

Thanks for the link, I definitely going to try it out

No problem, and resist the urge to any sort of "quick and dirty" method. You will get lower voltages and lower temps if you take the time to really fine tune it.
