I've tried a whole array of voltages, changing settings, testing my RAM to see if it's to blame, etc to no avail. I took some screen shots, could some please look over them and give me some advice.
have a little read at this thread: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...0k-oc-4-a.html

Where can I find a good guide on offset voltage for first time users ? I may give it a shot.

Set your desired multiplier and everything and just run the offset + and auto, load windows and run prime to put the cpu under load and using cpu-z note down what the voltage is. For example if it reads 1.408 and you need 1.428 for your overclock then all you do is add the 0.020 to the offset value and the load voltage should show as 1.428v, It uses the VID 'range' per multiplier and increases or decreases as you change the value to determine the actual vcore. If you require a negative value then what is shown in cpu-z when it is in auto, then use the minus sign and subtract the amount to what is required ie. 1.408 cpu-z on auto but you require only 1.388v, then use the negative offset and reduce 0.030v.

Hope that clears things up.

You need to change VDroop control to high? I don't know that motherboards BIOS well.

For the time being set your vCore to 1.4v. This won't hurt your CPU and will give you a good starting point and you can just lower and lower the voltage as it passes test.

Set your DRAM Voltage to what it should be.

I hope this helps!
Thank you, I am trying this now.

BTW, I don't have an option for high VDroop, just low and auto. I tried setting it to low now..

My DRAM voltage is supposed to be 1.5V I think, but am not sure. Does this sound correct?

I also noticed something else in my SPD tab in CPU-Z. My timings are supposed to be 9-9-9-24, but it doesn't seem to be right in CPU-Z as seen below:



Is that normal?

Maybe someone else can tell you about your vdroop settings.

You want to make sure everything it set to Manual and not Auto.

Next, say it passes, 24 hours of Prime95, go down two bumps on the Voltage and do it again. Continue until you are seeing blue. Then go back to what you were at.

Does anyone know if any of the beta BIOSes for my board fix offset voltage? At the moment (when I switch offset on) it is at a good voltage under idle, goes to 1.3V when a light load is placed on the CPU and the right settings are used, but then crashes almost instantly when I run Prime95.

Hmm, does your offset voltage need fixing?

Like I mentioned earlier in this thread, I believe using offset on Gigabyte boards is pretty handicapped seeing as LLC is disabled while using offset. I recently asked Gigabyte about this and below is the correspondance.

I've noticed that I cannot use LLC with DVID on my board. Other boards from other manufacturers can do this without problems. Also I've read certain Gigabyte beta bioses enable this.

Why can't I use these two features in conjunction? Will I be able to? Or will I have to switch to another manufacturer to get this feature?

GIGABYTE Z68 series motherboards does not support enable LLC & DVID simultaneously.

I suggest you adjust CPU Vcore instead of DVID if LLC enabled.

So let me just ask, why is it that you've chosen NOT to provide this feature with Gigabyte boards?

Because as I mentioned, other brands do allow this so it's definitely not impossible.

Sorry, I do not have an answer for that. It is like I mentioned in my last reply, our Z68 mbs do not support enable LLC & DVID simultaneously.

HOWEVER, some beta bioses for some models of the z68x series enable this functionality anyway. Yeah I don't know what to make of it.

Anyway, Gigabyte beta BIOSES get posted here: http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...beta-bios.html

The guys overhere mod those bioses: http://www.jzelectronic.de/jz2/forum...ige&wo=38&ze=1
