These are the values I set
DRAM 1.6V (mem multiplier 8,0 : 1333mhz ram -> 1440 mhz)
CPU Vcore 1.15625 V
BCLK 180 x 20
and finally, my QPI/VTT at 1.17V
This is where I'm unsure, as it's about 1.01V at stock I believe. Should this be lower/higher or is it just fine for my OC? I really don't understand what VTT voltages are so anyone could explain me that would be great and how it scales with the rest of my OC.
Only if it becomes unstable.
At 3.6 yo probably dont need that much. 1.12-1.15v should be enough.
Just try to lower it a little at a time until it becomes unstable and then bump it back up a notch or 2.
I see, well I went to my bios to see if I could lower it and there wasn't the option for any value between 1.1 and 1.17 so I tried 1.1 and it ran through intel burn at high stress just fine. ran a game, no crash, nothing unsual, seems good. thanks for letting me know about that detail!
I have another question now, what is the difference between OC'ing through multiplier/increasing fsb and so on? For example, my maximum multiplier i can use is 21x i believe, so would there be any difference if i used 171 x 21 over 180 x 20 besides the ram going slower?
sometimes i see some people have different multiplier OC setups, so i wonder in what case it is better to use a higher one or lower one
