    Hey guys, i'm trying really hard to get to the sweet spot of my rig.

    i have a fresh H80i v2 Watercooling and so far the only way my rig will finish a Real Bench (ASUS) on 4.6Ghz is setting my Vcore to a steady 1.475v

    all the other voltage options on bios are on Auto.
    Voltage Optimization is Disabled.

    The tempratures are fine but i dont need this voltage on everyday use, only while gaming.
    If i set the voltage to Auto the pc crashes when the tempratures are in the 80's so i'm quite sure its the voltage(which is below 1.4 on Load on that Benchmark).
    does anyone have a good expirience with this cpu? Thanks for any advice!

    Your voltage is too high.
    1.44V max on water and thats a good water cooler.
    You have reached the limit of your cooler.

    ps how you measure voltage applied is key.
    Most apps report VID which is a lot lower that the actual voltage applied when using LLC.
    Be sure you are not monitoring VID.

    how are u maintaining a stable 4.6g? what are your bios settings?
    do u put voltage on auto?
    Also, is the voltage shown on CPUZ is VID?

    Thanks

    I'm on 4.7GHz atm with 1.44V (at the cpu under load). I had to set the voltage manually for 4.7GHz.
    This is a custom water cooler, a good cpu block, 1/2" ID tube, a 280mm car heatercore for a rad and a pond pump.

    The speed you can get depends on luck getting a good chip and your cooling.
    When I run CPUz it says "Core VID" next to the voltage and it is VID so I dont use it.

    HWInfo32 can be used to get the correct voltage applied.
    You have to click the sensors icon and scroll down to Vcore (about 1/2 way down), the normal summary shows VID.
