ASUS preloaded setting 3.36 GHz
This is the final pre-loaded ASUS profile. However, I found it to be totally unusable. First, note how the RAM is configured on the CPU-Z screenshot. SANDRA scored it at only 12.79 GB/s (50% slowed than the last benchmark). Don’t ask me why. Attempting to overclock to 1600 MHz resulted in a failed Prime95 run, while Sandra reportd 20.2 GB/s.
Secondly, the profile put IMC/VTT voltage at 1.400V, but that is dangerously high (I limited this to 1.200V). I also had to adjust the DRAM voltage back to 1.350V. Finally, note the 90°C temps at 100% load. That is 194° Fahrenheit. No thanks!
|Core Voltage||1.248 V|
|IMC/VTT Voltage||1.200 V|
|DRAM Voltage||1.350 V|
|Sandra Bandwidth||12.79 GB/s|
|Sandra CPU Math||82.00 GOPS|
Thank you very much, I’ve found this very nice!
great post as usual!
Dude, this is a great article! Thanks for all the hard work. I couldn’t figure out why my temps were so high when I tried to overclock. After turning off hyperthreading it’s like night and day.
Just a question but why does the final screen grab say Intel Core i5?
That’s how Core Temp read the i7, as of version 0.99.5
photobucket has blocked the images, can you fix this or add a text based settings list?
