I don't understand how I'm supposed to set core voltage on stock? If I set it on offset and 0 it's stock right? (And when I do that it sets it to auto that's why I'm saying with my mobo auto = stock at least for this setting).

Thanks a lot.

Man is overclocking dead or what.? There's no guides when u search on google, or I can't read them all. Same on utube, I just get pages of benches/etc for i5-8600k/9600k

Stock is Auto Vcore. Can you show a BIOS screen shot of what your trying to set?

If you're using the offset, that's just a manipulation of the factory VID behavior. Yes that will get you "stock" voltage but not static voltage.
The idea (if I've not said it yet) is for the voltage to always be the same, otherwise the vcore is going to change under different loads. This isn't helpful if you're trying to determine what LLC is doing.
Manually enter the stock vcore value into whatever says manual voltage. I don't have your exact board so you might have to read things like the OC guide and the motherboard manual.

It is not, no one is chomping at the bit to write up Coffee Lake guides when it's the same arch as Kaby Lake so I'll post it again
https://www.overclock.net/forum/5-in...tatistics.html


It takes a long time to write these guides and I learned 99% of my OC knowledge from them after getting my 4690k, I really wish more people asked for them like you did instead of "I want 5ghz, give me the answer".
This was my first overclockable CPU and the first rig I'd ever built from scratch. The guide had literally every answer to every question I had. I knew nothing about overclocking or CPUs at the time.


The gist of the guides is what I repeat in every thread about overclocking:
Manually set static vcore, cache and ram to stock/JDEC speeds and voltage. This prevents the voltages from changing so you know exactly what is what.
Enable your board to draw full current.
Change only the core speed to your desired speed, input vcore to something reasonable but lowish.
Stress with P95 without AVX using Small FFT, it crashes very fast compared to almost anything else. Keep bumping vcore till you can run for about 2 hours.
Leave the vcore static and repeat the same procedure for cache. Same stress test.
Now you're at the ram and you do the same thing again but stress with Blend. Run it for about 6 hours if you want it to be stable af.
Now configure your AVX offset, use RealBench or OCCT for a few hours.


Once your speeds and voltages are what your want and stable enter them into adaptive mode or offset mode. I prefer to add 0.005ish to the value.


Done. There is a lot more that can be configured to help with stability and any interval which is why it's important to have everything static and to only change one thing at a time and make sure it's totally stable each time.
