They're pretty much similar. Go into your BIOS and disable any CPU fan Power Saver modes, C1E, CPU Spread Spectrum, or any similar modes that will power down your CPU when it isn't in full use. Then, raise the CPU clock reference multiplier until you hit 3.8. It should be x19. Then exit and save your settings. Download Prime95 if you don't have it already, and download CPU HW Monitor and CPU-ID.
In CPU ID, your CPU should read 3.8 Ghz at all times. If it doesn't, go back to BIOS and find the setting that is modulating its speed. When it is always running at 3.8Ghz, then run Prime95 blend test. Then look for the temperature reading of the CPU in CPU HWMonitor. Keep it below ~60C on max load. If your CPU runs for several minutes (I go about 30) without overheating or failing in Prime95, then it is stable in my book.
If it goes above 60, you have some options. If it was stable but above 60C, you could try lowering the voltage in tiny increments in BIOS. This can lower the temp, but it is more likely your CPU will become unstable at full load in Prime95 with a lower V. Likely, you won't be able to lower the V with any OC active. If you are below 60C, you can keep pushing if you want. If you are below 60C but you are getting failures, you could raise the V until you become stable, as long as you stay below about 60C.
All I needed to change was the Power saving on the fans(couldn't find any) and the multiplyer for the CPU? Not the voltage or anything?
Sorry if this is late.
No, you don't need to mess with the V unless it isn't stable in Prime95. (If you fail a test). If you fail, raise the V by the lowest amount possible and then try again. The more V the more heat and the more heat the less life length of your CPU. If you are hot, and stable, you could lower V by the lowest possible amount and do that until you aren't stable. Most times at stock V you should get 3.8.
Not a problem, It's been running fine on 3.8ghz for a few days. One thing that I've noticed not sure if this happened prior probably did but on my Motherboard I have tempature readings under
The TMPIN0 is running around 10c hotter than TMPIN1, is this normal or?
Btw it ran up to 49c on Prime95 for 20 mins, When i play games and I'm streaming hits around 44 - 46c is this fine?
