sure you can just increase the (base) voltage to where its stability under a heavy load but then you're over-volting the chip when light or idle loads.
also get off offset mode and switch to manual when looking to find the stable voltage. you can switch back to offset once you find it, but in the meantime it will cause you to pull your hair out being stable one test but not another.
go manual with LLC on high (or maybe start medium) just mind the max voltage reading you get doesn't go over 1.38 if setting 1.35 as an example. thats pretty much written in every sandy/ive bridge OCing guide.
offset with no LLC is sending all sorts of voltages to the chip when under load causing it to fail. you want steady voltage when finding the best stability.
There is a problem
no «manual» , only «+» and «-»
LLC – no «high» \ «medium», only «auto» \ « enable» \ «disable»
I read what 's on this motherboard LLC not working properly
auto=disable, enable - very very high voltage (4 MHz – 1.357 v) + displayed incorrectly
at the moment I have
х43 (+0.045) (DDR3 1600) (LLC Disable)
prime95 – 2 hours– ok (max 1.312 v \ max 70 C)
LinX 0.6.4 – 10 min test – ok (280 v \ 69 С)
AIDA64 cpu test 2 min – 1.312 v 58 C
AIDA64 fpu test 2 min – 1.288 v 69 C
but i noticed when AIDA64 Cahe & Memory Benchmark – checks L1 Cache - I have 1.344 V
my settings unsafe? Would it be better not to overlocking? I can 't risk this computer
