Did I overclock my Turbo Boost?

I have UEFI BIOS on ASRock Extreme4 + i5 3570k.

Where the CPU RATIO is, I changed it to "PER CORE".

Stock settings were:
1 core - 38
2 core - 38
3 core - 37
4 core - 36

Changed to:
1 core - 40
2 core - 40
3 core - 39
4 core - 38

Does this mean the Turbo boost is overclocked now? Everything else is stock settings.

Set them all to the same value per core.

This means when turbo kicks in it will clock to the multiplier across cores evenly.

Speedstep will still underclock correctly, but Turbo will go to core setting, so multi of 40 = 4Ghz ( 100Mhz x 40)

Best to set all cores the same value, are you running stock cooler, if so, 40 is probably as High as I would go, but if custom cooler is used, 42 or 44 is easily obtained.

I have a Hyper212 EVO.

Decided to go back to regular settings. The auto vcore went up to 1.230 @ 3.8GHz, think thats way too high. Temps were fine though.

Hyper 212 is fine for 4.2Ghz

Set your voltage manually, dial in 1.95 v and test, should run fine on 1.95, Autovoltage always goes a little high, but bear in mind 1.230 is not really high at all anyway, with Load Line Calibration, it will go up a little anyway to keep stability.

If you had said it loads 1.25 or more I would say there is a prob, but even my Asus Z77 Sabertooth dials in about that on Auto voltage.

When I had "all core" setting at 4GHz, the auto vcore would hit 1.25-1.28 range. That's why I'm trying out the "per core" setting.

What is a good load line calibration? Mine is auto set to 5, but I read ASRock 1-5 (so 5 is really 1) is backwards or something like that.

What is a good offset? +0.005?
