Hello

 

Searching OC settings for the i160 built.

 

I've used a general MSI guide and followed up a CPU bench with 3dmarks TIMESPY.

 

However I am not liking the result with manually OC.

 

These are the following steps I've taken from a MSI guide on youtube.

 

 

1. OC Explore Mode Set to [Expert]

 

CPU Ratio Apply Mode [All Core]

CPU Ratio 50

 

CPU Ratio Mode [Fixed Mode] All Run at 5Ghz no matter what for system stability

CPU Ratio Offset When Running AVX [-3] Tip from the guide

 

2.

 

DigitALL Power>

 

CPU Loadline Calibration Control [Mode 4] Perfect no matter what load see diagram rightside in bios

 

3.

 

CPU Core Voltage 1.320

CPU SA Voltage 1.200

CPU IO Voltage 1.200

 

DRAM Voltage 1.360

 

4.

 

Overclocking\CPU Features

 

Intel C-State [Disable] (Power saving mode)

 

Alternative that has been applied and followed

 

CPU Ring Ratio 47 3 under

CPU Core Voltage Mode "override och auto (same?)

I haven't set a throttling temperature - should I?

 

My temperature with the fan curve is a bit weird, the CORE0 is higher than the others and overallt the temps jumps a bit.

 

Looking at the HW monitor the voltage of i9900k jumps between 1.215(4)-1.3.

3DMARKSCORE TIMESPY CUSTOM

-DEMO

 

Results:

 

1. STOCK

 

3DMark CPU test score 9 057 (3.6Ghz) 9169 with XMP enable

 

2. Game Boost

 

3DMark CPU test score 10 426 (4.8Ghz / 4000Ghz in the end) 10 242 with XMP enable

 

3. Enhanced Turbo + XMP

 

CPU-Z (5GHZ Singel thread 582.3 Multiply thread5050.1

3DMark CPU test score 10 575 (5GHZ dropped too 4.4 then back up too 5GHZ)

 

4. 5Ghz Overclock + XMP

 

CPU-Z (5GHZ ST 587.9 MT 5242.3/ 3DMark CPU test score 8 784 (It went down to lower rates aswell)

 

I am looking for a 5-5.2 overclock if possible. Any suggestions, guidelines is appreciated.

Also something I noticed is with the XMP enable, my stats at CPU-Z memory I dont think it works, dont know what value I should see but should it not be, show more(doubble) than 1333 in DRAM freq?

 

/Cheers
