Second of all ... this is what makes me hate intel burn test with a passion. The temptation is to think, well, IBT can get it that hot so that means something else could potentially do the same. Well you wont even get remotely close to those temps in real use (even heaviest use).

For example my temps go like this:

Metro 2033 (2 hours continuous): 61C peak
Prime95 blend (18 hour peak): 77C
Intel Burn test (40 seconds, I had to stop the test): 92C+

(and btw BIOS temps are not idle temps, its like 60-70% load from what I've been told)

I'm not suggesting that 61C is the max I could reach in my personal use, but what I am saying is that its never gonna be close to 92 freaking C. All IBT does is make people feel bad or uncomfortable about their cooling and their temps (because it now uses AVX, this is new). What matters in the end is what you actually subject the chip to in your real personal use. The max is 98C so you decide whats safe, certainly 60C is very conservative.

On this note whats interesting is that you see a lot more people willing to run high voltages than high temps. Intel said that the max VID is 1.52 (not a "max safe voltage", but still) and people run 1.6v+ in suicide runs just to see what the chip can do. I even saw 1.7v. But we are scared of 95C?
totally agree. I personally dislike IBT / LinX (AVX) for that reason and the fact that it produces 12c higher than what prime does and yet during normal usage or gaming my temps never go above 65c lol

That's why I said in the OP that IBT is overkill, DON'T use it to read load temps because it's totally crap for that.

Thanks, I think its a pretty good one too. But I don't have much basis for comparison. I'm gonna go ahead and bite the bullet on a 5.0 prime run tonight. I'll just stay away from IBT since my temps will never sniff even what they do in prime for day to day usage. I feel 1.42 or 1.43 should do the trick. That magical 5.0 has some serious allure to it. It's definitely more sensible to run at 4.7 with a nice low voltage, but if I can run 5.0 in range on air, thats something I dont know if I can resist. My ambient temps are super low, around 68/69 farenheit and my cooler is working out epically, I added a third noctua 140mm on top of my nh-c14 with a 200mm case fan blowing on all 3. I'll give it a shot and post the results. Thanks for the encouragement.

This is driving me bonkers. I just bought an Asrock z68 extreme4 gen3. It's a pretty sweet board. But i'm trying to up my vcore to 1.45. I want to get 4.8 stable. Right now, I have it set as "fixed" voltage @ 1.475 but on the desktop it shows 1.424v @ idle and drops to 1.380v under prime load. CPUz and the onboard utility confirms it. Is there some overvolt protection thing I am missing? The only vdrop setting I see is for the IGPU.

It seems with Turbo 50 on, I can set it to turbo 4.8 ghz and the board overclocks automatically to 4.8 Ghz with a higher vcore under load..about 1.424v but I need a bit more vcore to get it stable. I don't crash or BSOD, but two prime95 workers drop after about 3 hours.

Any help would be appreciated.

What's LLC set to? Sounds like you left it at 5. I would set it to 2 and ytry then. As far as voltage, I actually have had the same issue with my P67 Gen3. I remember raising the vcore to over 1.4, but it would never register over that in cpu-z. It registers correctly under 1.4 though. it's a strange issue.

Yeah the LLC is at 5. I was under the impression that 5 was the setting for the more extreme overclocks.. I'll try bringing it down.

What I had to do as a work around was to reset the BIOS and set the auto turbo mode to 4.8 ghz.

It's a preset in the BIOS for one-click overclocking. You might have had it in your Gen3.

During load, the auto voltage for the preset is about 1.4v. I bumped it up by using "CPU Voltage Offset" in the ASRock AXTU windows overclocking utility. I got it up to 1.45v and passed short custom prime95 blends 1344 FFT and 1792 FFT (20 mins each) with most of my available RAM being used. The voltage is a bit high, but I like 4.8 Ghz bc i'll be crossfiring soon.

If it passes prime95 custom blend for 12 hours, i'll try to knock the voltage down a bit.

LOL that's kinda what I thought

So LLC level one is the highest not 5? just to be 100% sure.


had to edit my little guide in the OP.

For my board 1 is highest and 5 is the lowest, I assume his is the same. To be clear, 1 means no voltage deviation.

thanks for the confirmation.

Just wanted to ask, hows the GEN3 working for you??? I've worked with a couple and have had some pretty good overclocks and no problems what so ever.

Pretty silly asking you the question in the stable club lol, especially when I've seen how well you have you been doing with the mobo but would still like to know how your experience has been with it.

Thanks bud
