Help: Overclocking i5 2500k - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hmmm... k, well, I got EasyTune6 to work on my computer, and it's giving me CPU voltage readout that's slightly more accurate than CPU-Z or CPUID. However, as soon as I run Prime 95, I noticed that the CPU V. Core throttles down from 1.272V to 1.224V. Oddly, my CPU seems to be running stable at about 1.224V and x42 multiplier for the last 20 minutes or so.

Anyone have any ideas?

In my BIOS, I have the CPU voltage set at 1.3V. Hmmm, slightly confused still -_-;

That is the horrible vdrop taking place! you will need to change your load line calibration up from level 1.. to level 2.. from what iv read around on forms that should help with the vdrop.

That's normal. You can raise the LLC level to the point where the CPU load voltage is just about to where you set it at in BIOS.

You've still got a lot of room to go. To play it real safe, find out which multiplier lets you run Prime95 blend test for 12H at 1.3V (load). After you figure that out, then you can lower the voltage by 0.01V to find the lowest voltage you can run prime95 blend test for 12H at that multiplier.

To play it safe, just not as safe, try the same procedure for 1.35V.

Monitor temps of course and try to stay below 80C. With a good cooler, 1.3-1.35V should be around 65-75C. 75-80C isn't bad though, but the cooler the better.
