M7H + 4790K cache oc

My question is, is it necessary to overclock the cpu cache when overclocking the cpu core? I've been following the "Maximus VI BIOS Guide" by Raja, and there is mention of keeping the cache ratio within 300mhz of the core, this is why I ask. Also, I may need some advice on accomplishing this.

My settings are as follows -

BIOS version: 1002
CPU Core Ratio: 48
DRAM Frequency: DDR3-2666
DRAM Timing Control: 11-13-13-35-2
Termination Anti-Aliasing: Enabled
CPU Core Voltage: Adaptive
Offset Mode Sign: +
CPU Core Voltage Offset: 0.025v
Additional Turbo Mode CCV: 1.300v
Total Adaptive Mode CCV: By CPU
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
All other settings: Auto

Temp Idle: 27C
Temp Load: 72C

Am I set for 24/7 or should I be concerned with cpu cache? Please forgive my noobness - this is my first Intel build/overclock.

Also, can we have the "ASUS Multicore Enhancement: Enabled" option back in BIOS please. Or would that be redundant? It doesn't appear or be enabled whenever I check it in Ai Suite III.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The 300MHz advice was only for sake of outright performance for people who use their system to benchmark - not mandatory for an standard PC build.

You can leave the cache ratio on auto and overclock fine without changing it. For a 24/7 system this is fine.

Thanks for the quick response Raja. I will leave caches at auto settings.

What about "ASUS Multicore Enhancement", why is "Enabled" no longer an option?

If the CPU is overclocked be all cores, then no need for an all core turbo option. You're already in all core turbo mode.

All the ASUS MCE rule does is over-ride the Intel turbo core policy for a more aggressive one that boosts all cores to the turbo frequency when under load.

I gotcha, so sync all cores covers that option. I wasn't sure but I thought this could be the case. Thanks again Raja.
