    That's OK it is only available when Vcore is normal.
    22 is good, you can have 160bclk x22 which will result in a bit higher freq that you get with turbo, for all cores but turbo will have to be off I think.
    That would be a 25% overclock and the Hyper 212+ should be ok with it.

    LOL hold your horses.
    You will need to adjust memory multiplier x10, add someDVID and likely more VTT.
    It's common to have C1E and EIST off while overclocking, then turn them on when the system proved stable.

    hhahahaha..........oops a daisy.............well, here's what i did.......set base clock control to enabled, and set to 160..........then multiplier to 22............ that pushed my memory bclk frequency to 160 automatically (i think i learned something there, lol).....so, had to change my memory multiplier to 10 to get 160 x 10 = 1600mhz memory speed............that part worked fine.........but, when i rebooted, computer reverted back to a cpu multiplier of 21..... and gives me 160 x 21 = 3360, and not 3.52 if the multiplier stayed at 22 like i set it !

    btw, i noticed Intel turbo boost was on disabled, i left it alone, although, looks like i can change it to auto or enabled also.

    memory timings still on 8-8-8-24, qpi/vtt=1.23, dram=1.66V (although it actually runs at 1.65)

    i just ran maxmem, seems like increasing the cpu speed also helped the memory scores there also.


    ok, what now ? ;)

    resting temps are like mid twenties with no load..........prime95 is running now with temps still in the 65-68 range after about 10 mins.....holding steady

    If turbo was off than you never had the CPU at 3.46GHz so 3.36 is improvement.
    But I am worried about leaving the Vcore on auto. Set it to normal and DVID +0.025 for a start and see if you can lower it later or if you need more.
    The gain in memory performance is due to higher uncore(memory controller, QPI, and others) frequency. the uncore is x18 bclk normally at 2400MHz and now 2880MHz.
    Another compomemt that is OCed is QPI, maybe you can lower it closer to original 4800MHz, I don't know what multi options you have.

    Check with CPU-Z what vcore is under load.
    And BTW what is default vcore?

    ok, I think you've created a monster, ahahah

    ok, let me go change the vcore in the bios, and see if qpi can be lowered............brb
