How to get to 4 GHz with lower temps or voltage?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here are my temps right now, and settings in BIOS:

Attached pictures (note E-Leet read the VCore as 1.27500 for some odd reason, but I lowered it a notch so it's my bios readings, and that if you didn't notice, E-leet said my CPU voltage is at 1.329, which seems a bit excessive for 4 GHz.)

Any help would be appreciated. Be aware I have hyperthreading on.

(I am running prime95 at this voltage currently)

That does seem like quite a bit of voltage, not outside possible levels though, you could just have a bad chip.

Have you enabled LLC?

And what is your uncore frequency?

Edit: I'm a bit bothered by the large variance in voltage : / What does CPU-Z say, and what is the actual BIOS setting too?

My motherboard doesn't have an option for LLC.

I haven't touched anything uncore.

I got intelburntest to run 50 times at max memory with a 4 GHz OC.

1.26875 volts in bios, CPU-Z is reading it as 1.329ish
