Windows 7: Post Your Overclock! [2]

Starting point for me is Offset, and Auto........then I apply the actual offset. Right now I'm at +.010 and I'm running 1.240-1.248 with a max of 1.256 while stress testing.

Also, I was wondering if your Z87 Sabertooth came with the temperature sensors. I just watched Paul from Newegg unbox one and his came with temp sensors with a cable attached to them.

I thought about putting one under my arm if I feel sick.
I think I'll use one in the front air intake and one the chipset heatsink, the 3rd I dunno yet. They are a simple thermistor on the end of a two lead cable and I have to rig some way to mount them.

Here's the updated realbench if anyone wants it https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...Bench_v1.1.rar
Ryan try FSB 205 /Multi 23.5

LLC should be extreme /you can leave the other on auto if you are going .5 on the bus

1.5 is the voltage for 5,0 ghz no matter what some 1.51 because it needs that extra to get over

good luck with it you only need it to take a pic so keep a eye on temps and if you run a stability test and see it heating up let it go and save your self the bsod if the temps go over 61 to 62c lock up and bsod may occur that is the wall and the chip can't take anything over 60c so be careful
Cheers for the info chap
As i haven't got the extra 4pin ATX 12v to connect i won't push any higher, It's not worth the hassle
My heads too full of sh** to concentrate anyway lol and the only time i've beenin the bios in god knows how long is to setup the fans when i re-cased my rig.

Reading these last few pages i'm sooo glad i don't run Intel, what a ball ache it looks to figure out. There are way too many things to think about lol
Fairplay to you lot

Edit: that voltage quoted must have been a typo or i just wasn't thinking as when i pushed for 5ghz i was using 1.51v

Ivy Bridge is really not that bad. Unlocked multiplier, and very few things to fiddle around with. If you've been doing something a certain way for a long time, and then have to do the same thing a very different way, it can be confusing. Such is the learning curve....

For some people, depending on hardware set up, the formula of Vcore- VID is right on. For others, like me, it is an 'in the ball park' thing. Also, all the other settings in bios affect it. For instance, I told you my C states are off. My 4.5 is very stable and has been for months. But, if I go to bios and enable the C states, I'll BSOD when I see 'Starting Windows'. I've always said, overclocking is not a science, it is an art. It is a matter of figuring out your bios and CPU and have everything pretty well balanced. What works well for one person will not work at all for someone else. But, there are general guidelines that work for most people, with a little tweaking.
Only C-state should be on is C3 everything else will BSOD you

It's because you are requiring a power draw that those states don't allow only C3 let's you creep by happily
