I’m pretty new to the over clocking thing but from what I understand from reading and watching youtube videos it’s pretty easy with AMD black Editions. Anyway this is how I have my PC setup in the bios.
MB: Gigabyte 970a-UD3
CPU Volt: 1.425 (1.325 is Stock)
Disabled Turbo Mode
RAM 1864 (1866 RAM, MB sees it as 1600 stock.)
NB Volt 1.115 (+10 over stock for RAM to work right)
I have disabled AMD Quite&Cool.
I have no issues with stability; my question is about the voltage. I have it set to 1.425 for the CPU. When I get into windows CPU-Z shows it at 1.47. Then when I run Prime95 to do a stress test it increases the Volt all the way to 1.57 which is crazy high I think. Is this normal? Or should it cap at 1.425?
The main issue that im having is cooling. I have the termaltake 760i bigwater all in one water cooling kit. I have no issues at stock clock and voltage. Idles at 19c and caps out at 51c when doing prime95. When I OC and it applies the 1.5+ volts I get up into the 70c+. I know 62 is the point your not suppose to go past for long periods at a time.
Did I miss a setting somewhere?
If you need any more info let me know.
Thanks for any help in advance.
