what does HWiNFO64 tell you when the system is under load?

I can downclock it to 4GHz by setting 40, but if I try to switch back to 45, it is just 4400MHz again.

might need to step through the BIOS screens to see what you are setting.

Here is my setup and it is showing 47

Got it working by adjusting the clocks from the turboboost setting. Weird that it goes by that setting, even though it's disabled.

E: Testing [email protected] now, and prime95 is shooting the temps to 100C and it throttles... I guess I can forget OCing this thing with my NH-U12S, I'll just stay at [email protected] biggrin.gif

I have a gigabyte Z97X-gaming 3 1.1 motherboard and i'm missing some options and i'm a bit confused after watching the video(new to overclocking)


I'm missing this tab .. does this mean i shouldn't overclock ? my motherboard is not good ?


In the video the option is set to extreme, I don't have that.. is 'Turbo' the one i should pick ?

I can't find pwm phase control anywhere either.

Thank you

Guys I am running Z97x gaming 5 F7 bios and 4690K.
I realized uncore has to idle while casually browsing forum, mine was always running at 35x.
Ran one of my CPUs that way for 2 and other one for 1 years now.

Then I have read it is a Gigabyte thing. When I change CPU Multiplier Uncore got stuck at 35X again,
The fix was setting multipliers for core individually from Turbo, All set to 46 it was just same but this time with uncore that idles at 8X.

Then Uncore got stuck again when I set my Memory Multiplier to 16X, and this time I couldn't find any workaround in bios.
I found a workaround for this, so sharing with you.

I set Ring Voltage to "Normal", Ring Offset to "+0.0V"
I set Ring Bus / Cache / Uncore whatever you understand what I mean to 8X in bios.

I installed Intel XTU, set cache mutiplier to 39X.

Now it works, idles at 8X and boosts up to 39X and shows +0.9V offset in HWMon. (Tried it and it shows +0.3V offset when Ring Voltage left auto).

I have couple questions tho,

1- Does ring voltage drop when it is idling at 800mhz anyway? for other boards or for our gigabyte ones?
2- Do you guys have same behaviour when you change your memory multiplier or CPU multiplier?
