2600k & LLC

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Guys i need your help, why is it if i set the line load calibration to ultra high on my Asus p8p67/2600k set up i require a cpu voltage of 1.41v to be stable @ 4.8 (which underload drops to 1.392v)
but when i set it to extreme i can set cpu voltage in the bios to 1.375 (which underload increases to 1.392)????? can i have peoples opinions on what would be the prefured setting ultra/extreme
post #2 of 10
this is actually vdroop, its like what voltage u supply and what u r processor gets .
important thing is that u r core needs 1.392 at load for 4.8 ghz

u can either put to extreme , and give 1.375 and at load it will shoot up to 1.392 (depends)
or standard u will need to give 1.41 still the procssor gets the same voltage

just keep a eye on whts u r voltage at load if u put it extreme voltage might shoot up and fry u r chip

its a common issue for everyone nothin to worry.
please someone correct me if i am wrong
thanks

it seems that my cpu requires 1.392v underload to be stable @4.8 which in my bios is set to 1.41v using ultra high LLC is there any advatagesin just using the high LLC setting

this is a big issue some people go for it and some dont
how ever using medium droop setting is fine , no worries . which is worth it

So are you saying that ultra high is ok then? for 24/7 overclock or should i be using just high?

Hello,

Not too long ago I also made the decision to enable LLC on my motherboard.
What helped me make that decision was this article on overclockers.com:

http://www.overclockers.com/load-line-calibration/

It also includes a good describtion of what LLC is.

It seems to be perfectly safe, I've been running it for more than a month now at 1.375V.

PS. I don't have the Ultra high option, so I'm running Extreme mode ^^

thanks i read that document it makes me feel happier to test with diffrent LLC settings, i think im going to try 1.41v on high and prime blend for 10 or so hours and if thats ok ill call it a day.

one other thing i have noticed is that when C1e,3,6 are set to Auto they are actually disabled if i get the desired outcome above with my overclock will enabling these have any detrimental effect on stabilty?

No problem

About C1E, as far as I know, C1E lowers your CPU multiplier to the absolute minimum multiplier your CPU supports.
It also lowers your vCore to the minimum, just enough to maintain stability.

While overclocking your CPU it is recommended to turn it off. Once you find a stable overclock, you may try to turn it on and let your PC run idle for a while.

If it crashes you should turn it off, if it's stable you can leave it on.

The same should apply to EIST, although EIST lowers your CPU multiplier/vCore depending on the current CPU load.

Greetz ^^

that is fine LLC on P67 boards means its coming from a VRD12 certified PWM, and that means that its pretty high tech, better tech leads to better LLC incorporation, which in years past wasn't the case. Voltage increase underload, vrise is normal for top level LLC.
