    I read about a few ppl with their cpus at 5ghz and they only ran their vcore at 1.487, yet somehow i don't think my cpu could run at that vcore. I'm not totally familar with this mobo yet and what all the settings do so should i lower vcore to 1.487?

    1.520 is too high..i dunno about an i7 2700k but my i5 2500k does 5ghz with 1.46v...are you using the offset mode to increase your vcore?

    Dont do 1.52V on air.
    I run mine at 1.52V sometimes but I am on water.

    air no lol. I would probably need that for 5ghz. but I run at 4.7 1.424v 1.408 load 4.8 1.456v 1.440v load when I do not run speed step. thats as high as I would go on air as long as 24/7 temps are good

    settings that i used for 5ghz: LLC ultra high. vrm frequency 350. phase control extreme. duty cotrol extreme. cpu current capability 120%. internal ppl voltage overvolt enabled. cpu vcore offset mode + 0.050v. vccsa 0.9. vccio 0.975. cpu ppl 1.7.

    I'll throw my experience into the ring for reference. I'm running a manual OC with HT on - 4.8@1.4v (P95 blend tested overnight) with LLC set one step down from the highest. Haven't tried 5GHz - may do it one day for Sh*ts and giggles.

    Have you thought about a manual OC, at least until you figure out what your chip needs for a given OC, then use offset mode to fine tune it?

    I wouldn't run such high voltages for 24/7 use unless your really keeping those temps low.

    hi guys i'm using the corsair h100 cooling on my cpu and i do monitor the temps so it's around 30C at idle mode at 1.52.

    What's offset mode btw? I have tried running a lower vcore but it always BSODs and i don't think i'll run this OC all the time. Doesn't really look smart running it at this speed all the time.

    Simply run Prime95 small fft's and see what your temps are using Realtemp.

    If they go above 75c then halt the test, if not then keep the test running to stress the cpu for a while (about 3 hours) and if you dont get any BSOD's then you should be fine. Anything over 75c for me is a massive no no. Really temps should be below 65c but these new CPU's can handle anything up to 80c but I dont like to go anywhere near that.

    Actually i wonder if the temps are due to me living in a hot humid country near the equator. Even though i do have air conditioning in my home.

    3 hours is too long for me. Perhaps i'll do the intel burn test.

    Well your temps are directly affected by the rooms ambient. Just run prime for 20-30mins see what your hottest core is at then take it from there.

    That's very high..Ok for benchmarking but I think it is dangerous for 24/7. I run mine at 1.44v for 5.0ghz 24/7.
