ok so i checked my volts and im 1.280 at full load. thats resonable for 4.3 right. any tips? should i tighten those volts or leave it?

Just depends on the CPU since they will all run at diffrent clocks/vCore.



What I do is see where it will run stable at the lowest possible voltage.
And from that lowest stable place, go up 1 notch.

For example, mine was stable @ 4.5 at around 1.24vcore.
@ 1.23 would fail prime after a while.

So I ended up setting it at 1.25 (for a bit more headroom) and leaving it there for 24/7.
Just a little habit Ive always been in.


Just keep lowering the vcore a little at a time, and test until it fails.
then bump up a notch and see if stable, and youll have your lowest stable vCore.

I would think at 1.28 you could probably go up to 4.4 or 4.5

Agree with Wishmaster, try small steps to determine stability. That's really the correct way to overclock. And since no two CPU's are alike, no one setting can work for all. Trial and error, and patience, is your friend when it comes to overclocking

Yep. the CPU voltage is fine, but you could either lower it or raise the clocks.

But to do all these adjustments, your better off doing it manually. I've got the same chip and virtually identical board and could post some of my settings if you like.

*NB As the others have said, no two chips are alike and there's no guarantee that my settings would work for you, but it might give you an idea of the different volts/settings that should be placed on manual.

yeah i raised the multiplier to 44 which leaves me at 4.5 with 1.280 v. i tried 4.5 with 1.24,1.25,1.26v and all bsod. 1.27v booted and lasted for 1 min then bsod. i took it back 1.280v and its running now lol. yeah i did tweak it manually, i just tried the switch to see what would happen. ima run prime for a while and see the temps. if i like what i see ill step up the multiplier. and hope this doesnt melt on me. what are some decent temps at full load with 4.5? i just have 1 fan on my 212, no push/pull config.

P95, about 60-65c

alright i tried 4.5 with 1.28v and its instant bsod when trying p95. i lowered the multiplier, so now im at 4.4 1.27v and its running p95 just fine. temp wise im just a few degrees below 65 so that's good. i'd need a wee bit more juice to be stable at 4.5 huh? instead of slapping a generic 120mm on my 212, would preplacing both with the sought after noctua would i see improvement? or are they just for silence?

Possibly. There are other factors that could also be in play, like RAM. Have you set the X.M.P profile?

They do push a fair of air, and yes you would see an improvement, but it's the noise level that the noctuas are re-known for.

There are other fans that will push more air, but noise can become a factor.

I may be wrong, but I think the Noctua pushes 56cfm and is almost silent. That's a fair amount of air to push.

EDIT: I was close, it is 54.36cfm Link.
