I5-3570k 4.5ghz O.C. high v-core issue Tags: CPUs Core Stress Test Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: April 19, 2013 11:00 AM in Overclocking Share teabubblez February 24, 2013 3:22:08 AM Hey guys, I decided to do a little o.c. However, when I changed the multiplier to 45 and tested with prime 95 on a blend stress test, Cpu-z gave me an approximate v-core of about 1.52v. That seems to be horribly high for 4.5ghz. Specs: i5-3570k gigabyte z77x-ud3h hyper212 plus Could someone tell me what is wrong ? Thank you, More about : 3570k 5ghz high core issue teabubblez February 24, 2013 4:02:40 AM Thanks for the quick reply. As someone being new to building pc, and overclocking in general. Is there a guide somewhere in regard to this specific board? Also does that just simply mean that I got a crappy chip? Edit: Stabilizing 4.4ghz at around 1.3v. However, When I up the turbo ratio to 4.5ghz. It stays at 4.4 why is that ? mystilez April 19, 2013 11:00:37 AM Did you manually change the Vcore? or set it to auto?. Not sure on Gigabytes BIOS but for MSI has a option for CPU voltage Can't find your answer ? Ask !
