    So my 2500k likes 1.4v for 4.5ghz haha. Trying all the LLC options right now with offset at +.020

    I think i have a very shitty 2500k, lol. Or Motherboard sucks.

    Going to keep it at LLC Level 3.

    This makes me want that 3770k in the FS section that can do 4.5GHZ at just 1.2v haha

    But didn't you say it was stable before on 1.32?

    SB is kinda known for degrading at this point in the extreme circles, or so I have read a few times in the past couple of weeks. chips are only like two years old at this point, so we are now getting to the point where I think that this might start to be a bit more common.

    With the Tuning Plan warranties though, I don't see it as that big of a deal. Pay the $25 now, if you OC. :p

    Could it be cause he had the offset set really high for long period of time? Its odd that it is taking so much voltage.

    It might, if you look back at my posts on this topic, you'll see that I was recommending SB users use less than 1.3675V-1.3875V, since I had seen many reports of degrading @ 1.425 and up.

    yeah, i think all this time while I thought it was at 1.32v it was at 1.4v+ not knowing and degraded it. Its running prime fine right now at 1.36v

    This makes me really scared to look at what my offset/load voltages are. It has been a while since they were set but when I get home today I will check to see what I have set.

    keep trying hopefully it'll get back into that groove.


    you've changed your system config quite a bit since then too, new VGA, NOW WATERCOOLING, THAT COULD BE ENOUGH TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE, TOO, AND IT MIGHT NOT EVNE BE DEGREDATION AT ALL.


    damn that's too many caps to fix. :p

    See above?

    Yeah, In Realtemp the temps are only hitting a max of 59c haha. Not sure i even need a to get water cooling on this chip any time soon. Ill probably ditch it before i put it on water i think. either 3770k or a 4770k when it comes out. I need the hyper threading now for video editing. It took quite a while to render and prepare a 7 minutes 1080p 1.38GB video yesterday into a MP4 video file.

    7 minutes?


    :lulz.

    You know, I set up one audio rig for this guy long time ago with a q6600, and Crossfire X1900XT's. He was using it to transfer over video from digital HD decks over firewire, and into Sony Vegas for edit.

    720p video, 90 minutes, took 15 minutes to render, with the Q6600 @ stock.

    1080p, half the time, that's a pretty good boost in speed, really.

    No, the video was 7 minutes long. It might have taken 10-15 minutes to render lol
     
    brandonwh64 says thanks.

    ran prime95 for an hour at 4.5GHZ at 1.368v (CPUz) perfectly fine. just going to leave it alone now. Temps never got higher then 64c on the hottest core. Anything lower on the voltage offset, and BSOD at windows load up.

    dude use either the offset or llc, you shouldnt need both.

    offset will give an increase in volts in each of the 3 power phases if you want to keep the speedstep on or if not cut the power saving crap and just use llc for more vcore under load.

    as it is atm you are getting an increase all the time from the offset and another jump when the llc kicks in under load.

    I can post you my settings but my OC is far away low than yours and with a diff board. If it could help only thing is i used LLC to reduce vCore droop at load (or even reversing it) as marsey99 says. Right now i accomplished to go 1.248V/1.236V @ idle/load with a LLC of 4, when i raised up to 5 it was upping voltage on load instead of reducing it. I have to say that i'm not using SpeedStep at all.

    I noticed my i5-2500K is wanting way more voltage to reach an stable 4,21GHz OC and for the moment i think i'll keep it "safe" with this low voltage.

    Good luck with yours!

    I can go until 44 multi with auto voltage and not touch everything else except Turbo boost power limit (if this is not changed it downclocks to 4.2 after a few seconds under stress). Voltage in BIOS shows 1.288 and in Prime95 CPU-z shows 1.280 dropping when necessary to 1.272. I've settled for 4.2 turbo since a year now, it is more than I need. LLC is used to compensate vdroop, never used it on my machine, never had a problem.
