Ok, so I set my vcore to 1.315, LLC is at 2 (one below extreme) and I ran a blend test for 10 hours last night with no issues. Does that sound pretty good? Temps never got above 69c.

It doesn't have to be enabled, but the people that do use it, say it helps stabilize vcore at higher clocks. I don't use it because it makes my bclck 99.8 for some reason. It didn't make any difference in vcore behavior on my system anyways.

Keep phase one notch before the maximum. Seems to be the general "safe" consensus.
Set Frequency to 350 for Vrm.
Your ram should be using the XMP profile. you can verify that in the bios and make sure it matches the G.Skill's specs.. (Nice memory btw)

Good luck!
Thanks for the replay, rep+ yea vrm ferq is 350/manual, xmp profile as well. The only settings, im not sure if i should change is spread spectrum, yes it does make my bclk also out of stock (cant remember exactly what ferq it was)

So i guess no spread spectrum, and we are left with VCCIO/VDRAM phase control settings, if anyone know or played with this settings, would be nice to hear

An unstable system can easily pass blend test. You want to run Prime95 Small FFT for at least 8 hours solid.

Not so sure about VDRAM phase, however, I would leave that on default increase the vccio a little, it can help towards stability. Maximum safe is upto 1.2v

That's not true, with sandybridge its entirely different. Those that have fold for 24hours have failed prime blend with a few minutes, there are some that can pass AVX linkpack 50 times but fail within a couple minutes of prime blend, hence the creation of this thread and it's RULES. Basically Blend is the best tester for sandybridge.

Your wasting your time with small ffts. Read above.

The duty and phase control should be set to extreme when overclocking, VCCSA should NOT be altered, also Load Line calibration can safely enabled to high or ultra high, extreme is not recommended for that as it can cause voltage spikes. The main purpose of LLC is to reduce vdroop and compensaste the voltage when under load.

Spread spectrum has helped most Asus mobo in the vcore fluctuation, it is recommended to leave it on. On that note, under CPU configuration, make sure all the safety features are on, Intel speed step, C1E, C3 and C6 Report.

Now the safety features (C3 & C6) should be enabled in a specific way:

When using offset you should disable the C3 and C6 report, when using manual voltage it should be enabled, at that point if you are experiencing IDLE/Random BSODs then it is recommended to leave them on or run them on Auto.

Hope that helps

Thanks rep +

I got only 1 stick ram atm, should i increase VCCIO even then? my 8GB kit, should be here in few days.

I have never disabeled any C states, or speedstep.

Spread spectrum, is disabeled i will try with enabeled, also i can boot without PLL overvolatage @4.8hz, is it wise to leave it off? if one wants ultimate oc stability that is.

Also is Vcore over current protection same as cpu current over protection? i have this @ 140% as in your guide.

Oh one more thing. I can never set boot order on this mobo, all i get is this hard disk is may be infected by virus, even after i set my boot order to C300 which i got OS installed on, so its like the mobo trying to boot from other HDDs which got no OS installed on, instead off my SSD, i never sorted this out...

yeah you can safely increase it, it helps overall stability, I would recommend 1.125v at first. Then once your RAM arrives you can do more tests.

PLL overvoltage is a little weird for me and a couple other's. My thought's are if you don't need it don't use it,I believe it's intended for high mulit's but specific ones, for instance you may not require it for 4.8 (48x) but need it for 4.9 (49x) and not needed for 5ghz (50x) to boot into windows. That is the only use that I have found from the PLL overvoltage, it helps boot the system at particular multi's.

140% is fine, you know how to overlcok and you don't want your mobo holding you back


Have your tried disconnecting your HDD's and selecting the SSD as the prefered 'HDD' boot device? at that point you should be able to see the ssd in the boot priority list.

Good luck.

By the way download the latest version of the cpu-z, realtemp and prime95 here:
