    It gives faster rendering times if you use QuickSync

    right guys, i have a stable 4.8ghz clock, and have run a 5 pass test which completed with no errors of linx @5.0ghz...
    [​IMG]
    i have most settings on auto in the bios, but have set the vcore to voltage offset +1.125 with llc on auto..if i drop it any lower i get errors on LinX.. max temps 71 on 1 core... other than that all seems good. Do you think this all is okay. I am happy to run at this 24/7, but i am going to do more tests overnight to see how i get on. I also updated the motherboard bios to 1.12 which seems to have helped.

    Thanks again in advance.
    max voltage i can see in windows is 1.376, usually 1.368,! :00

    If that's all the Vcore you need to run it at 5Ghz that's a wonder chip. Mine needs close to that to run @4.5 (but mine's a 2600k)

    Sorry for offtopic (kind of), but could anyone explain LLC (Load Line Calibration) to me? I only know it helps in stability when ocing, but when and how do you need to tweak it? You raise the level when ... ? Or are there preferred levels when clocking above a certain speed?
