I'm In, I think I finally have it stable at 4200. I kept bumping the voltage it's now at 1.25 in the bios and I am on just over 2 hours with 8 workers on blend in Prime. I can bump it a little more it's 4.2Gig on boot up...
yes I like V as low as I am can get it. I took it down until it would still boot but give me errors in a worker or 2 and then bumped it up one or two i also would bump my qpi volts 1.21875 and the ram is still at 1.64V in the bios.
I am not sure why cpu-z shows 4199 instead of 4200. it lists it at 4200 in the bios and on boot up. my temps are 36-37c at idle and 68-70 on blend full load after 8 hours and I have the h70 fans set to 1600. I am almost tempted to set the cpu back a little and start playing with how quiet I can make the system now.
True enough - never thought about that. It's ok I am blend testing 4260 right now at 1.256V so we will see... I know that I can take the bclk to 209 after testing but what I am trying to get is the highest oc on this chip at the lowest temp and still encode h264 with handbrake all night with no issues or bad videos produced. I can do a 1hr st8 from the DVD tv show to mkv cpu at 4Gig in less than 12 min. a 20 minute improvement over my 8300 Quad.
Any way we can see some bios settings? I want to OC mine, but I never did it before and lack experience. I've been reading and can't seem to find a good guide. Right now mine is at 3.3 just using the auto setting from the motherboard.
edit: Up to 3.7 running prime for a few hours to see if its stable, workin my way up to 4.0
