So my new 5960x is here. Likely going to do some loop maintenance this weekend and swap it in. I've been out of the loop on overclocking guides and whatnot. Are there any good/updated guides around? I'm pretty sure I had just done a quick and dirty OC on my 5820k (XMP, multiplier, and voltage).

Hi,
You have no system spec's added to your signature
So which board/..... ?

Bere Is a good guide with voltages limita too https://www.tweaktown.com/guides/67...s-spec-qfra-cpu-overclocking-guide/index.html

Start with 1.30 volta and try with 45x and test if is Stanley, if nota Stanley got down at 44x...leave all the rest auto

If he has the X99-A it is not a good idea to leave everything on Auto, because if he enables XMP with post-Broadwell-E BIOS versions the motherboard will set CPU VCCIO to 1.25v and could potentially degrade or murder the CPU in a matter of months or even days.

These are the maximum settings from my findings he can use if the cooling allows :-

Vcore : 1.30v max is preferred (1.35v if the CPU is not in a continuous 100% load environment or if he is not going to crazy AVX2 workload levels like Prime95, latest OCCT or LinX)
Vcache : 1.20v is the absolute max, around 1.15v is preferred. Haswell-E is very fragile when it comes to cache and degrade pretty quickly due to high Vcache voltage.
VCCIN : 1.95v at LLC7
CPU VCCIO : 1.10v only if having difficulty stabilizing the RAM, otherwise set it manually to 1.05v.
VCCSA : 1.10v max but usually not need that much, and System Agent is not always stable at higher voltages. My chip can do DDR4-3200 at 0.880v VCCSA so in worst cases I don't think he will need more than 1.0v.

Regards

Does newer BIOS have that problem? I've been running Version 3801 2017/12/04 for a long time. I'll have to go and look at my settings but my 5820k has been 4.5ghz @ 1.35v with I believe the rest or most on auto for like 5 years.

guys is there someone going to upgrade his CPU on an haswell-e cpu?
I play in 4K and I currently run a 2080Ti on a [email protected] (it can't do more)

do you think that it would be stupid to upgrade to a 3080Ti on this CPU?
sincerely I don't want to upgrade the entire PC for another PC with DDR4 and USB3

Hi,
Technically I updated platforms but still have the same 1080ti ftw3 in it for not until 30 series drops
Opted for z490 and 10900k as the new gaming platform

On x99 5930k I never gamed past 4.0 so not sure why 4.3 max would be an issue but chip would do 4.5 still at 1.3v

At 4K you're still going to be GPU limited in most cases I would think. Would probably get a bit better minimum fps, but hard to justify the cost in my eyes personally. If you were at 1080p though, the story would be different.

I havent oc in ages, but is it normal for 5930k to be at 4.4 with only vcore change? I think 4.6 is considered pretty high, so at 4.4 there should be no stability issues? As in, it can be stable with only vcore bump?

Motherboard will adjust other voltages automatically. Just make sure it doesn't use excessive voltages if you want to keep the chip for a while.

I played around half an hour of bdo and it was fine, but than it bsod on me after another half hour in death stranding. Can it also happen from gpu overclock (1080ti +70 +200 gpu/mem)?

Hi,
GPU core clock go by +13 so maybe +65 or +78 would do better vmem really no + rule there +200 is low enough not to matter
But if bsod could be power supply power delivery in that chain
Could also be memory or cache related you have no system spec's entered.

Could also be on screen monitoring/ fps counting... interrupting and causing bsod in the game.

Quite happy with my 5960X System.

Should i get:
32GB CL14-14-14-34 FlareX or 64GB CL16-18-18-36 Vengeance LPX
SAME PRICE for each kit.

I could fill 32GB easy, had that amount before. Board/CPU doesn't like 8 sticks of ram anymore, so have to get new kit of 4x8 or 4x16.

Is that for 4.5GHz 5960X?

Yer, auto settings.

Also does a good 7zip bench for an old CPU.
Just trying to figure out a ram upgrade.

Hi,
3200c14 = 14-14-14-34 is b-die best thing for x99 period.
