but it seems to relate more to 3770k so I do not know if it really applies. I have searched online and have found a huge range of opinion as to what is a "safe" day to day voltage, some say sub 1.28 others less than 1.3, other less than 1.35 and others say anything sub 1.4 is fine. Intel's max is 1.52 I think.
The problem is my voltage. I am using the offset method, so dvid adjustment. It takes 1.298/1.3 (under prime 95) to get stable at 4.4Ghz and 1.344/1.32 to get stable at 4.5Ghz - temps in Prime are around 79 max. Under Intel Burn Test Max setting, they hit 86 on core 2.
I currently have Turbo Boost, EIST and C1 set to Auto, and C3/C6 disable - as another forum guide said the opposite to this one and that you should disbale C3/C6 when Oc'ing using offset.
I have LLC set to High and DVID is + 0.070
PWM is set to Extreme Performance and Voltage Response is set to Fast.
I have not touched anything else.
My concern is that according to that guide I "should" be able to hit 4.8 at the voltage I am pumping in, but I do not know how much salt to take a pinch of with that guide really.
And P.S. : You will hit a temperature threshold before you get voltage too high. Alot of people that hit 5GHZ use around 1.4V, and consider it "fine". Needless to say, most people running chips with that much voltage are using high end custom water cooling, and/or removing their heat spreader and contacting their CPU cooler direct to the CPU die.
If you are hitting 86C with 1.3V, do you really want to push your chip that hard is the question? Depends on a number of things - how long do you want your CPU to last, how pissed will you be if you burn it up?
You could also consider buying the intel insurance which I think runs around 20$, if you burn up one chip I believe they will replace it - in which case maybe you would be ok running 1.3V or more long term to your CPU on air. Do some reading if that is your choice.
i have a g1 sniper 3 and you cant leave load line calibration at auto please set too extreme or turbo you can reach easy 4.7 ghz whit 1.265 v core / load line calibration turbo / power phase extreme ! xmp profile 1
