Since the release Intel has said 0.4v was the recommended Lowest delta, if you use 0.4v you are prob going to hurt stability. To ensure stability in their own default mode, they choose 0.8v delta. I am using now usually 2.1-2.2v for a 1.25v-1.3v vcore.

Ok that's interesting, thanks for that.

nice haha! Why not try the RAM out now?

mandrix 05-28-2014 10:18 AM

I don't think this RAM will clock that good....and I confess I'm not very good at OC RAM. biggrin.gif

Not sure it will boot with the 2400 settings and X50.

I did no extensive testing.
VRIN was 2.3

Sin, what's the deal with the difference in opinion on voltage delta between core and input?

ASUS is stating in the "key lessons" section that 0.6V delta and lower is recommended. You state in this thread/guide that 0.8V delta is a good rule of thumb (paraphrasing here) and maybe more is necessary. Thanks. Just trying to learn stuff.biggrin.gif

^Seconding that and wondering if there's data to support using "more than neccesary" on vrin? I've generally been telling people to keep it down. Usually ~1.95 or so for a 1.35vcore OC, depends on the board/llc/cpu a little
