I have been following the alt oc sandybridge guide by 4RYan6 to the letter. I have set fixed voltage at 1.305, I have selected level 1 to avoid vdroop in the lcc slot I have disabled the c States in the advanced window etc etc. And I have definitely disabled speed stepping after i set manual (W). I am not having any BSOD's @47x.
My issue is with the test programmes, Prime and OCCT always seem to make my system "Step" 39x 42x 45x etc etc. Aida lets me go straight through if I test CPU alone or CPU and Mem(Ram), without stepping me down. But when I included cache test Aida starts stepping me around as well. So My question is obvious and I think it might be that the programmes stick their fingers in the work to check something I am not aware of OR something I have set for the cache must be wrong.
Funnily, and not gonna get any brownie points here I guess.. but so long as I only want to do office work and play crysis2 then I can actually get 47x at 1.288 vcore and get the temps down to 61C on air. I am getting a antec Kuhler h20 920 end of month.. but I am happy with the latest things that are going on with learning about this stuff. Maybe that is part of INtels plan.. customers get invested in this sort of stuff.. I am..lolz.
