Hi all

Reasonably new to the OC game.
I am having issues with my OC (4.4ghz at 1.336v) crashing when i shut down and sometimes when idling.
I should note that this doesn't happen all the time, nor on every shut down.
I suspect it has something to do with using offset mode but im not sure.

3570k chip
ASUS P8Z77 board
850w seasonic PSU
16gb ram (have tested with memtest86)

Let me know what additional details you need and i will post them up.

Thanks

Do you have auto tuner on? That is the exact voltage it gave me for my 3770k before I knew to turn it off....

If so, turn it off, and manually set voltage and multiplier. Do a gradual climb in both and go from there. 1.336 seems pretty high for that clock.

You can either disable C3 and C6, or use a lower Load-Line Calibration setting and then raise the Offset setting in order to compensate for the extra vDroop. I would lower the Load-Line Calibration setting because it will result in a cooler Voltage Regulator Module, and you get to keep C3 and C6 enabled.

C3 and C6 are both disabled.
I shall try lower the LLC from High to medium and adjust the offset.
Thanks two cables.

If C3 and C6 are disabled, then it's unlikely lowering the LLC setting will help. It may be that your offset is too low resulting in an idle voltage that's so low that even having C3 and C6 disabled doesn't help. So I don't know, I think raising the offset a bit might help.

Hmm any other suggestions if C3 and C6 are disabled with .045 offset?
Im still getting crashes on shutdown and sometimes while idling.
Medium LLC setting.

yeah just tried that.
and opting to up the offset to .055.
still getting crashes and whea logger erorrs that are killing battlefield

that voltage should be more than enough for 4.4 I would think once again every chip is different. If I were you if you haven't done this yet got back to your previous offset of .045 and enable pll overvoltage and lower PLL voltage to 1.7v. save and reboot try that.

is that likely to fix the whea logger error issue that's causing Battlefield to crash in game?
as i am aware that is a sign of non stable overclock too

yes that is a sign of instability but yes I feel it may help you. it might not but some people do for some reason need pll overvoltage enabled even though most don't need that till over 4.7ghz and sometimes loweing pll voltage helps to stabilize overclocks better. Worth a shot

Went to test the new settings on prime95 - no bluescreen but enough whea loggers to sink a battleship and prime95 crashed after about an hour..

FINALLY have it stable at approx 1.336v (sometimes goes to 1.344 but mostly 1.336).
Unsure what exactly i did though as ive had it at this voltage before.
Just ran 10hours of prime with no issues, temps 80c max.
I think increasing the LLC to High has helped.

Thanks all for your help.

What a mission.

ugh still has random shut down errors.
overclock high voltage is stable and gpu overclock is stable.
low voltage is like 1.08v min with all the C1 C3 etc turned off.
farkkkkkkkkk
