Sandy Bridge / Re: CPU-Z Vcore, Dynamic Vcore

As with all all things PC it is really a case of trial and error. You needs lot of patience and be prepared for the inevitable failures.

Looking back over the notes that I made at the time (this is a really useful thing to do as, in a couple of months you'll have forgotten most of it!) I dropped the voltage to my target settings almost immediately then tested the system for stability. I then played around with dropping the voltage lower in smaller steps until the system fell over. I then fine tuned the settings between the first and last measurements until i reached a point that I had the lowest voltage with stability.

Sounds easy but, it did take a fair bit of time, to achieve the desired results.

Alright nice one. Appreciate the help, from here I guess I just start dropping voltage updates until it becomes unstable?

There will always be some vdrop, no matter what settings you use. I remember that issue bugging the hell out of me but it is actually designed to do that.

In the end, I gave up worrying about it and just went with the settings that gave me a stable O/C.
Motherboards with Intel processors / GA-Z270M-D3H BIOS F6 wake issue
« Last post by jli1972 on September 13, 2017, 04:26:47 am »
I found that WOL(wake-on-lan) does not work on this F6 version -- I can't wake up the computer via onboard LAN.

On the other hand, the wake-up-by-mouse/keyboard can not be disabled,  even though I chose 'disable' for these these options.

Does anyone have the similar wake issue in F6?

Thanks in advance!
Motherboards with Intel processors / z270 gaming k5 offset volts over clocking
« Last post by bass_junkie_xl on September 13, 2017, 04:21:52 am »
hello peps i have the gaming k5 mid range baord with these

7700k  5 ghz ht on -delided /relided ( not glued )  with liquid metal under ihs / under water block to
g skill rgb xmp 3000mhz 16gb  cl 14-14-14-34 @  over clock 3600 mhz  cl 16-17-17-38 1.4v
msi gtx 1080ti founder @ 125+ mhz core (2000mhz )
1000w cooler master psu
intel 600p  512gb pci x nvme m.e  ssd
swiftec h320 aio cooler ( 360mm rad )

just relased  thermal take view 71 full temperd glass case  ;D :D

on to my issue  im stable 5 ghz 1.368v -1.375 v  ht on all cores no avx offset

i switched to  using  offset voltege  ( aka normal under cpu options )  then a offset of -0.035 v

all c staes on  ,voltge optmization on , rsr off ( i heard to turn off rsr ) ht on , turbo mode off since im 5 ghz all cores

issue :  idol cpu im .700v .800mhz cpu speed ,  full 100% prime 95 load   it will jump around from 1.368v - 1.41 ish  but more 1.38v  ish   and  games like bf1 ,bf4  near 100% cpu ussage sit around 1.368- 1.39 v 

is it normal for the volts to be sloppy like that on offset ? i mean im ok with 1.41 v  my temps are very good  bf1 5 ghz 100% cpu all day after 6 hrs only hits 54 c - 66c 

im ok with temps just wonderign if i can make the volts not be so funky and be more 1.368v then up to 1.41 ? 

currently  no bsods im stable  justa side note
Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: GA-Z270X Gaming 7, is this reboot normal?
« Last post by bass_junkie_xl on September 13, 2017, 04:12:32 am »
I still have the reboot problem even after updating the BIOS to F7 so I updated to F8a and I still Have the problem the only change is that it happens randomly ,sometimes it boots normally and some times it doesn't, I don't know why ?
My Memory are 2X8Gb G.Skill Aegis @ 3000 Mhz 1.36V XMP Profile enabled.

 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I'm suffering for something.!

with or without active XMP profile.

* GIGABYTE AORUS GA-Z270X-Gaming K7 Gaming Motherboard LGA1151
* Intel 7th Gen Intel Core Desktop Processor i7-7700K
* Thermaltake Hydro 240mm CPU Cooler
* Corsair Vengeance LED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200 CMU16GX4M2C3200C16R
* GeForce GTX 1070
* Corsair ATX 1000w PSU.
* Win10 PRO 64bits

already upgraded the bios to F7a, F7 and F8a, and the problems persist!

After the updates F7 and F8a did worsen the situation!

I feel a few freezes on the windows system, when I move the mouse, and also when I am in games.

i used to get this probelme  when i used my mouse software to  ( 1ms or 1000 pooling rate ) when moving mouse i would get mega fps drops  maybee try uninstaling mouse/ key baord  sopftware and try diffrent  usb plug   its werth a try or try

xmp off run ram @ 2133 mhz  , then still freez try  1 stick of ram  test, same thing try other stick, also could try  diffrent ram slots onstead of slot a + b  try c+ d  you know what i mean lol

i had the reboot issue onmy gigabyte gaming k5  cold boto when restarting f7  fixed the issue 90%  1 out of evry 10 reboots does the cold boot so im happy .

my g skill  rgb 16gb  3000mhz   over clock to  3600 mhz  @ cl 16-17-17-38   1.4v  board likes it so i mean  board isnt toaly trash i have my 7700k @ 5 ghz ht on 1.368 v offset mode with power saving so it drops down to .800mhz  cpu speed @ .7v   and ramps up to 1.41v under avx   
7700k is delided with liwuid metal under ihs and my water cooler block so  even @ 1.42v 5 ghz all cores no avx offset prime 95  doesnt even see 81c ona 360mm rad  so ill keep the baord till i get the new 8700k coffee cup  lake i mean
Graphic cards / Gigabyte Aorus RX580 8GB Fan speed.

Hi, just got the RX580 and it's awesome performance wise but sometimes gets really loud with the fans at 2600+rpm's like some games with same gpu temp but different fan speeds, is this normal?
Motherboards with Intel processors / New Build/Won't boot/flashing CPU LED on MB
« Last post by leeboy1964 on September 13, 2017, 01:08:32 am »
Hey guys, some of you will likely WINCE at how little I know about building a custom computer like this, but I've always wanted to give it a shot and I am now realizing why that probably wasn't the greatest idea.  I have an i7 6700 CPU on a Z270X-Ultra Gaming board, 650W Corsair power supply, 8gbX2 DDR4 ram (2400), and am using only the onboard video output to try booting into bios.  I feel about 95% confident that I have everything plugged into the correct places and 100% certain that they are seated correctly.  When I push the power button all the internal (show) lights light up and the fans spin.  The small LED indicator lights in the corner of the board are dark with the exception of the CPU light which flashes on and off.  The computer shuts itself off then back on again and does the same thing until I remove the power cord.  I get nothing from the monitor, it stays black.  I feel like I'm missing something simple and just have my nose too deep into the case to see it.  I've tried the two ram sticks in the 2 and 4 slots, as well as trying to boot with just one of them in the 2, then the 4 and finally the 1 position, all with no luck.  What am I missing???

Thanks for that.
I've made some progress. I've used your old settings, though starting with a 1.35 voltage seeing as you were going for the higher overclock. So it's at 45x, 1.35 and I've tried LLC at 3, 4, 5 and 6.
With LLC at 3 cpu-z shows it vcore holding at idle which is a first, but still gets vdrop under load.
As I then go up through the LLC levels from there (not changing voltage) all that changes is that cpu-z shows voltage as higher and a vdrop under load, and temperatures increase as I go up through the levels.
Is a little bit of vdrop always to be expected or none at all with the right settings?
