For your CPU Vcore, the stock is different for every chip (which is why there is only a range listed on the intel site). If you aren't overclocking, I would really recommend just clearing your CMOS to undo anything that you've messed up. If you don't want to clear your cmos, just set the BCLK to 133 or auto, it really doesn't matter. I don't know what your goal is here if you aren't overclocking...
Ok, I'll reset the CMOS. Anyway all values are in auto just the vcore, ram voltage and BCLK.

My goal is get a good values to use my cpu as default because on auto it looks like overclocked gettings high voltages, high temps and noise. Thats all

I know you all are more into OC, thats why I though that put a PC in its default values could be more easy for you all

Hahaha, yeah it is I guess. Anyways, Just go ahead and reset the CMOS. The "looking like overclocked" part is just because of the Intel turbo boost technology. It isn't bad if you don't really want to overclock. I recommend you just leave everything alone. Your temps are perfectly fine by the way. You have nothing to worry about

With 1.28 there are no noise at all. It happens when the cpu is representing some graphics like loading webpages, scrolling text and sometimes it still but never happen when Im stressing the cpu.

And I cant reproduce the bad boot. I dont think its from HDD because it hapend on POST in the bios before something is loading from HDD and it reset again the whole pc and restore the voltage.

I had disabled turbo boost, manually put vcore to1.24 (recommended after disabling turbo boost in the bios as a default value) and BCLK to 133 manually because in auto is set to 134.9.

So.. from all these 3 settings, what could make a PC more inestable?
Turbo boost off, lowered vcore or the bclk?

Is hard to me to explain because Im not english sorry

So what I want is just run my pc with default values (but not auto because those are higher than default) but without random fail boots when I restart my pc.

Im trying now vcore 1.200v, dram 1.500 (was set to 1.540 by default -.-") and BCLK 133 with Turbo Boost enabled. I get a bit higher temps, but if that dont make me fail on POST randomly is ok.

Im just lost finding what those options could affect more to those fails on POST/Boot

BTW: I posted some pics in the main post if you can take a look and say to me if something is wrong...

PS: I build by myself and notice that all work fine with auto values (I think, still too new, less than a week lol) but those high temps, weird voltages values in some things and the noise... make me think to no use the auto
yeah, that is very strange how it crashes on bootup. I would just set everything to the recommended settings, and lower the vcore to 1.15 and see how your temps are. and set the ram voltage to 1.5v. keep turbo boost off. the high cpu temps are because of the high vcore. so lowering it will keep the temps down.

Hi guys. i have the exact same problem with the noise due to the i7 950 and im on x58 too. i tested the cpu power options put them lower and the noise disappeared. i realy need to get this sorted as i am a producer and need little to no interference through my speakers. if someone could walk me through the bios about getting rid of this noise i would be greatly aprechiative! Thanks

What I did to solve this is lower the vcore, set manually the ram voltage and the BCLK to 133MHz.

Isnt too hard. Just enter on BIOS, go to power management and set vcore to 1.200 (is what Im using right now, but I have plans to reduce it in a near future to what kyle7412 said). Then set the DRAM to 1.5v. Now, out of the power management page, go to the page to overclock the CPU. That page contains the multiplier (x23) and others features. You can see an option that said BCLK AUTO. Change it to manually and set it to 133Mhz (even on auto it can display 133 below, but isnt 133, is 134.9 for me).

I dont know what is your motherboard, but cant be too different. Anyway, if you are producer you need even secure a lot more your cables. Buy ferrite rings and put 2 in each cable. One near the PC and other near of the speakers/line in/mic. You can see those ferrite rings probably in your monitor aswell.

Good luck!!

PS: I have enabled turbo boost because now with only 1.200 in vcore i get really low temperatures. Anyway make sure to not use the stock fan. Mine isnt the best (noctua is better) but is one of the few fans with low size and better cooling. And can disipate up to 200W

As a hobbyist recorder myself, it sounds like you're using studio monitors. If so, there's not too much you can do about noise. Studio monitors are designed to output all noise on the line. My suggestion to easily (if not cheaply) cure all your problems would be to purchase an external sound card. Given a seperate ground, it should clear all your audio problems unless the source is coming from your outlets.

Thanks! it works! very strange that was. does this reduce performance in anyway by lowering the voltage? thanks.

Doesn't work, same problem here with external USB sound. Disabling E1C and all the other C states completely fixes it but doubles idle power usage.

No, the performance is the same because you get the same GHz and the CPU have enough voltage to work. If it were too low voltage, the PC just dont start.

The undervolting solution is the one that work and even make your PC more healthy. Im using 1.125v for the CPU and the noise is not just gone, the CPU is A LOT colder than before
