Custom 3.37 GHz and DDR-1775
If you checked out the previous benchmark, you saw temperatures maxing out at 85°C. Performing this particular benchmark allowed me to see if the temperature would rise at a consistent rate with minor voltage increases. As expected, this test broke 90°C and didn’t make the cut.
This benchmark was not in vain, however, as it will give us a clear picture of how much cooler our system runs when I turn off that egg-frying Hyper Threading. RAM settings from the previous test (1757MHz, 7-8-7-24-1T at 1.350V) causes BSOD in this setup. To fix it, I simply set the RAM at 1.400V.
|Core Voltage||1.150 V|
|IMC/VTT Voltage||1.150 V|
|DRAM Voltage||1.400 V|
|Sandra Bandwidth||22.2 GB/s|
|Sandra CPU Math||81.74 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?
