For me it's Ultra High setting.
My voltage is showing much lower than in the BIOS, and I do have LLC turned on. I'm not sure where else to look.
Not to familiar with GB overclocking as terminology for given bios setting is different than that of the Asus bios which I'm more familiar with however I believe from what I can ascertain from this thread, that you may find helpful, the following settings may be the key to a manual vcore method of overclocking that board to 4.6 with that proc.
RATIO CHANGES IN OS [ DISABLED ]
CPU THERMAL MONITOR [ DISABLED ]
NTEL BOOST TECH [ ENABLED ]
MULTI-STEPS LOAD-LINE [ LEVEL 6 ]
Please give the thread linked above a full read which I think will help you get where you want to go.
Just a note from my perspective. Theses boards, P67, Z68 & Z77 come choke full of power saving features by default, which is a good thing, and there are many settings in bios relating to these features. Although they can be problematic initially when trying to reach your max overclock, hence the need to disable them, it is always a good idea once you get your system stable to revert back to them for a multitude of reasons. Keeping accurate notes along the way is always a good thing especially the effects of all those setting as it relates to system voltages at idle and under load. The whole goal should be to find what voltages are necessary for stability at a given clock. Once established you will know what droop, for example, is acceptable for your hardware to be stable. When you re-enable the power saving features you will then know what to look for out of those settings which makes reverting back a bit easier. Who needs a full blown 4.8 OC rockin 1.45 vcore 24/7 to browse the internet? short answer... no one. Hence the useful benefits of your proc down clocking to a 16x multi and approx. 1.0 vcore when it's not needed to perform the task at hand. If that means, in the end, you end up with a max 4.6 vs 4.8 overclock to have these benefits you are not loosing that much in terms of overall performance and well worth the trade off IMHO. GL
