post #4011 of 10702
Can I make an enquiry? With the CPU PLL voltage, I've lowered it to 1.5v and I'm working my way up in increments while testing stability, mostly encountering 124 codes on the BSOD.

Since the default is set at 1.8v while on auto, I have tested 1.7v and still received an error code of 124. Does this mean that I'll have to go higher as I can't see how going lower than 1.7v will enable me to find a stable setting.

Hope you can understand :-)

In terms of fps in bfbc2 & bf3, what do you think the difference is between 4.5Ghz and 4.8Ghz?

Less than 5FPS for sure.

How do I go about using offset voltage though? As in, what do I set the offset to?

Also, do I need to disable C3 and C6?
As long as you know what vcore you need, setting the offset should be pretty straight forward. Set offset to +0.20 then run prime to see what the load voltage is and adjust accordingly. Yes you are sorrect, C3 and C report should be disabled when using offset voltage.

Is this good/bad? I am looking at other peoples rigs and threads and they have a much higher vcore. Also do you want a fixed vcore or do you want to offset it? Sorry for all of the questions it is my first time overclocking a cpu.

Offset is better because along with the multi the voltage drops when under light usage or idle providing that C1E and EISt (speedstep) are enabled.

4ghz with those voltage sounds alright, unfortunatly most in the list are above 4ghz but two, they are runnign well above 1.2v for their's so considering that your's is below 1.2v I would say that's pretty good.

Go here and fill in your system spec so we know what you are running then we might be able to get that overclock a little higher without sacrificing temps and voltage by that much. There is a lot of info in the first post of the thread which I recommend you to read.

testing PLL voltage is a very lengthy process especially for asus mobo user's because of the small increments, I believe it is something like 0.0625v between each changes. The difference may be small but there is a thin line between an error 124 or not.

Read the posts about PLL voltage, the links are in the OP, they should be a little more in depth.

read the '****Max Safe Voltage and Temps****' section in the OP and you decide.

I would say it's fine. I've been running mine on 1.47v for the last 6/7 months and all is well.

From my experience, using offset voltage on Gigabyte boards is a bit tricky seeing as LLC cannot be used with offset voltage*. However it works fine on other boards, therefor I dropped the whole idea.

If you do endeavour to use offset voltage, please share your findings

*I cannot use LLC with offset voltage on MY board with MY bios, although I know it's enabled in some beta bioses, but it's more the exception than the rule. And also doable in TouchBIOS, but it's actually a bug; it changes noting. Utter junk that application is.

Do you know if that's with all gigabyte z68 mobo's?

I do not know that for sure but I highly suspect so.

Feel free to take a look at the last few posts of http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...-club-115.html

So I notice in CPU-Z max TDP is set to 95w.

RealTemp shows my tdp watts at higher multis creeps up over this sometimes then drops quickly back down.

a) Is this some kind of throttling?
b) Should my cpu tdp be going that high?
and finally
c) my mobo has a switch I think labelled TPU. That is disabled on the side by the corner closest to the ram. i assume this is related, should it be enabled/disabled.

and finally another unrelated question.

You say to set the current value to 140%. What pros/cons does this give us?

Thanks
