Asus Maximus Hero Alpha and 6700k Overclocking

So far I have the cpu @ 4.8 (I believe that's all shes got) and Cpu Cache @ 4.2 Ram is GSkill 3200 cl14 . vcore is set to 1.425 Bios shows 1.43 repoted in Windows as 1.44v LLC is on lvl 7 < would prefer to lower that to lvl6 Cpu standby voltage 1.0125 system agent voltage 1.20 vccio voltage 1.20 pch voltage 1.0500 PLL Termination voltage 1.01 anyone have tips how I could try to get either a lower set vcore or lower the LLC and remain stable ? ive seen vcore spike as high as 1.46 and 1.44v at idle seems high . atm I cant lower vcore or the LLC and remain stable . Temps are good idle around 28c game load around 38c stress test highest ive see in 79c but the Radiator catches up quick https://db.tt/6HhQ5pJd

Hi Subsider

That looks really good if you ask me, for 4.8GHz I need 1.52v and that's just game stable it won't pass a stress test.

Intel says max safe voltage of 1.52v and max safe temp of 64c although you can take stress testing temps to 90c.

Gaming temps and everyday 24/7 use max 64c.

I am a OverClocker . I want more with less and stability is a must ! I wont be happy until I've exhausted every option ! 😉

Try for 4.9GHz? 🙂

You can overclock the BCLK too, I'm able to get the BCLK to 300 with the maximus viii formula and 6700k.

You can also run the cpu cache the same speed as the cpu core.

I run the cache at 4200 haven't bothered to much with it other then when I want to run certain benchmarks . 4.9 takes more voltage then I care to use . What I'm looking to do now is fine tune some voltages and then see IF the ram wants to give me any more . once I'm to that point I may work on the cache some but as long as its within 500mhz there's not much point to go farther as it wont yield any real life performance imho

The core and cache voltage should be tied together at least they are on the formula viii, just change the cache ratio to 48 and you're done, you shouldn't need to raise any voltages.

You have great temps and shouldn't be a problem.
