CPU HWM is all screwed up. I get weird readings using that app. AIDA64 is what I trust.
Yeah i cant even run hwmonitor or cpu-z they both say not responding when i try to open either. OP you might have just gotten a really crappy chip... Are you on latest bios? If so try loadin defaults and try again
I am on the latest BIOS - I could give a clean start and try again. Ideally I don't have to RMA my chip but it's starting to look that way.
Make sure LLC is enabled...
Take a multi-meter, take your cpu lead in 8 pin adapter while plugged in. Read for 5v on the red wire. If it is not 5, your power supply is defective. If it is accurate, then your motherboard is defective.
You're kinda double ƒucked because OCZ is unreliable trash and so is ASUS.
^Nothing wrong with ASUS bro...
lol, in one of my more recent posts I said that I bought a Corsair 750AX Gold PSU this afternoon. If my PSU is defective I'm going to throw the unit out my window.
AIDA64 reads the voltages correctly at 5v and 12v!
So I guess that leaves me with a CPU that is faulty, or I'm terrible when it comes to BIOSing >.>;
Is this offer still valid? ^^;
^Your CPU is not "faulty" simply because it won't overclock as high as you'd like it to. That's ridiculous logic.
You haven't answered my question yet...
I will go double check!
I suppose that's true.. however it seems odd that I would be the only one who has ever reported only being able to reach 3.7GHz on a processor that is both designed with overclocking and has infinite accounts of people reaching 4.2+ with a simple adjustment of the multiplier >.>;.
What I meant by that was simply that it could either be the CPU itself, or 'other' - and I'd like to make sure that it isn't 'other' . Thanks! I'll post back in a minute to answer your question
OK so I'm on a laptop here and I'm in my bios - what's odd is that I tried to find the LoadLine Calibration and I couldn't find it - when I loaded BIOS defaults the configuration option appeared just under the NB voltage. Interesting.
What value should this be set to?
There's no way that's actually Prime stable lol. Literally not possible.
Lol, where are these infinite accounts...? I think many people prob tell stories about how far they can actually OC. 4.2 is a very high and def not an avge.
Between 3.7- 4.0 is about normal, depending on stepping.
I'm just lucky enough to have a very very good chip, that's all.
First off, he got a new PSU already. Corsair AX750. Secondly, ASUS is far from trash.. :wanker:
Hate to be 'that guy' but what should I set the LLC to? lol
I have Auto, and then various % options starting at 0, and going all the way to 100%. 100% then?
Set it to high(50%).
Yeah 100% for now, can always drop it from there. Auto is same as disabled.
Don't leave the vcore on Auto though, reduce it to about 1.4v to start.
