Played for 2 hours Battlefield 3 maxed out with skype (on) and monitoring on background with aida64 showing vcore range 1.360-1368v and temps 59C, also played Batman: arkham city for 1 hour with aida64 monitoring again and showing the same values. Was browsing on firefox with hardware acceleration (on), watching videos on youtube without any problems or BSOD's and Vcore was 1.368-1.376v (lets say thats idle).
Here you can see the settings i used:
VRM Freq: 350
LLC: Ultra High
Intel Speedstep: Enabled
c3, c6: auto
PLL Overvoltage: disabled
Spread Spectrum: disabled
Cpu Current Capability: 100%
Duty Control: T.probe
Phase Control: extreme
Vcore manual set: 1.370v. Now on load i get 1.360 - 1.368v and idle on 1.368v - 1.376v
DRAM voltage: 1.50v
DRAM timings: Auto (correct seted 8-8-8-24 with manufactureres default)
DRAM frequency: 1600Mhz
VCCIO: auto (1.052v)
PLL voltage: auto (1.798v)
Please tell me your opinions! I would be glad to hear some of those
Thanks in advance!
Dos, I don't have all of the same settings in the bios but here's what I've heard. This might help ya.
Disable c3 and c6.
Change CPU Current Capability to 130 or 140%
PLL voltage seems a tad high...?
Make sure your memory isn't the problem. Try a mem test....
4096k tests seem for me to reveal anything unstable. You pass a 1hr 4096k, you should be able to pass a 12hr blend...
Hope that helps.
Where's your chip from? Heard Costa Rica chips are great....mine seems good!
Thanks for your answer.
First of all i wanna say that at the moment im pretty stable on whatever im doing on my PC with the settings i posted. All tests mentioned as ''stability prove tests'' like 4096k prime and other, have allready passed succesfully.
Im not using offset so i think there is no reason to disable the c3 and c6 because as mentioned here
, if ur using manual you better have em auto or enabled for avoiding any idle BSOD (i never had bsod on idle as far as i remember on whatever settings
Well pll voltage is on auto
Memory isnt a problem for sure since i can stay stable on everything ive tested so far with max memory usage.
4096k passed after a 30 min test. Usually when someone is unstable it bsod the first 5-10 mins on 4096k test.
1344k and 1792k also passed on my 9 hour blend test.
IF someone can explain me why to change from 100% to 140% the CPU Current Capability setting and that this will not affect my overclock and force it to bsod's i would be pleased to change it.
Now about my chip i dont think its from Costa Rica, i mostly think that its from the worst intel factory since i need 1.370v to run 4.5Ghz hahaha Edited by dos659 - 12/8/11 at 7:55am
