    i got a suggestion though, I see you like dynamic overclocking by using CIA2, I do like the idea of saving power/less heat by reducing clock and multiplier at idle and blast them on at full load. Im overclocking clock my Current Core7 920 @ 3.5 by using stock cpu vcore the bios setting is normal , I have Eist Enabled and other sleep modes enabled, so when cpu is idle it lowers my Multipliers and voltage I get less heat at idle and save power, heck i can even use DES if i want to see how much power i saved. I do recommend you not use CIA2 or Easy tune 6 for modifying voltages, software ocing is never 100% stable/safe. I do use Easy tune to check my current voltages from Manually done in bios and CPU temp and Speed fan control if i need. so try using vcore on normal and oc as highest you can on that you can keep Eist enabled and save power that way. Underclocking your ram is not needed as ram wont consume much power as a cpu would. use DES when your idle and you can even increase your power saving feature. yes your concept of overclocking is great i love it myself, but CIA2 is not the way to go.

    So lets recap what i said

    UseNormal Vcore Cpu Enable Eist and sleep modes
    Use the Lowest FsB VTT you can boost a lil if you need stability
    Use the most optimal voltage/speeds for your rams

    adding vcore to the cpu makes the eist feature work partially, thats why i said keep it on normal or its stock voltage.

    and if you need extra voltage for your cpu, decide if is worth the extra mhz
    do you really need another 200 mhz for 1.45 vcore instead of using stock 1.25 vcore?
    decide if the heat and extra power consumption is worth it.

    after all finding the balance before jacking UP voltages is the way to go for
    dynamic overclocking.

    i keep my new system using power saving features and stock voltages.
    i use 100 passes of intel burn tests at max.

    the motherboard is there, you just have to take your time with it and make the most use of it.
    Say no to drugs and CIA 2
    Use Easy tune use it for monitoring, not for modifying voltages...

    well i hope you got something out of this!

    let me know how it goes :D

    Well, to each their own. I personally don't pay much attention to laws and legalities in general.

    Just noticed how terrible my vdroop is. Volts in BIOS are 1.3625.... (LLC on) off is much worse!

    That's Vdrop. Vdroop is the diference between idle and full load voltages.

    Your Vcore is pretty good for 1.3625 in the BIOS. I'm running 1.45625V and it shows 1.424V. Vdrop is fine. Vdroop is also OK. It's not the enemy it's been made out to be. If it causes instability, LLC works well. If there's no instability and you can run a decent voltage without it, I'd recommend it be off. After you get to the point where you're on 1.3625V and are still unstable, then try LLC and a slightly lower Vcore, working up until stable.

    Thanks again Psycho101! I hope you get salary, for being here helping!

    I notice I have to set voltages much higher in BIOS to get LLC disabled while overclocking. It usually drops to around 1.00V under load and freezes the PC. So I figured I'd try it again after getting my max OC. I still have lots to learn.

    I just noticed a review where they acheived 4.4GHz with a E8400 with only adjusting vcore to 1.4v. I was hoping I could acheive that but have not been able to get much past 4.3GHz and am afraid to make vcore higher. I just started messing with MCH reference voltages, but it did not seem to help.

    At 4.3GHz you'll likely need an MCH ref lower than the default. How low is a case of trial and error, but I'd try 0.720V @ 1.2V CPU Ref first, then one lower, followed by 0.740V as a last try.

    Keep an eye on CPU temp with such a high clock, and don't attempt it using CIA2 imo. This kind of overclock needs complete control to pull off. The choice of strap, SMM etc can have a huge effect. You could very likely need more than 1.3625V at 4.3GHz. You may also find you need to drop to a lower clock if you can't get it stable.

    I'll give it a try today. 4.3 is easy, and only needs max 1.32V (CPU-Z). Still priming after 13 hours. I can still boot into windows with 4.4GHz but unable to get it stable. Priming temps never exceed 69c. As soon as I hit 69c, I stop and lower settings, but now reaches 82c with IBT. I figured higher ref voltages, so hopefully lower will be better. IBT shows long times and low Gflops when voltages are not enough for processor and is invaluable while OC'ing. Which explains low readings when using high frequency, it's probably not stable. It also is the best way to fully stress the processor using CIA2 and is my main program.

    I probably shouldn't use CIA2 until Gigabyte fixes the random high clocks, but depending on the settings I use there are more or less of them. I have sports mode enabled and am around 381 FSB X 9.5 multi. Thankfully I have not seen any readings like my 108GHz lately.

    I agree most should not attempt this with their hardware, however I experimented with my last MB until I fried my PCI X-FI. It gave me a reason to upgrade to PCI-E version.


    Use extreme caution, and always expect the unexpected.
