Gotcha, I’ll follow that guide when I go home...I realized I’m also running XMP on my ram through BIOS..can that be causing some instability too? I see the guide says to avoid it.

Turns out there is a number of powerspec 650 watt units a non modualr and a semi modular with a bronze rating a semi modular with a gold rating and a fully modular with a gold rating one so which one is it?


What i found was about the non modular with the bronze rating and that one sucks
The semi modular with a gold rating is a High Power Astro Lite which at least is not awful

As said that one sucks its based on the High Power Element Smart which the NZXT HALE 82 V2 uses and that one sucked as well
https://www.overclock.net/forum/31-p...ale-82-v2.html

The Element Smart was way outdated when i made that thread 5 years ago and its not gotten any newer or better since

Well ****...what are my options here...? Is the PSU really that dangerous? Should I just put in an older one I have that’s EVGA Gold cert, 800ish I believe??

Its not dangerous its just an ancient design that was very mediocre 5 years ago i am not saying its going to blow up or start a fire or anything that but can you say you trust it now?
On the other hand it does not belong in a modern system like yours and its holding the rest of the system back which is one of the reasons why your OC cant go very high

As for EVGA they have a number of units that are just as bad if not worse than your old Powerspec so what is the model you have?

Not sure, I’ll have to look when I get home for you.

This one, my memory was a little off. My 800w gold died in my other build -_-

Here is a bump with everything stock, MCE off, maximum performance set in BIOS.

https://imgur.com/a/86TrZMq

EDIT:

I might have actually done something...

I was looking at the guide posted and:

Manually put in 4.5ghz for CPU, 3200mhz for ram
MCE Off
CPU Voltage Offset -0.045
DRAM Voltage 1.350
CPU VCCIO Voltage 1.125
Speedstep Disabled
AC Load Line 0.01
DC Load Line 0.01
LLC Level 5

...With that said, I'm getting even better temps...is this safe/normal/working now? Same test done above:

https://imgur.com/a/qpbLrQD

FINAL EDIT:

Changed CPU Voltage to manual 1.35 and things seem fine...

FINAL FINAL EDIT:

So I think I did it...

https://imgur.com/a/QvWyTpE

To recap, settings are:

Manually put in 4.5ghz for CPU, 3200mhz for ram
MCE Off
CPU Voltage Manual 1.350
DRAM Voltage 1.350
CPU VCCIO Voltage 1.125
Speedstep Disabled
AC Load Line 0.01
DC Load Line 0.01
LLC Level 5

The strange thing is that the "powers" portion is still fluctuating like mad and temps bounce 10 or so degrees still...but from what I'm reading that's semi normal for these cpus?

Are your current settings maxed out in the bios? What are your VRM temp? Those two things could cause power throttling with such a high vcore. 1.35 should get you at least 4.7ghz all core but I'd expect 4.8ish. Could be wrong.

It's easier if you post the photos here instead of a link off site.

Sorry, it wouldn't let me post the video, but

1) p95 after a few hours

2) stability test

3) intel burn test

Edit: Would lowering any of those voltages benefit me...or am I pretty much at exactly what I should be for temps/performance?
