View Full Version : Prolbems overlcocking 990x and Rampage iii formula

10-07-2012, 12:33 PM

Am having a bit a small problem overclocking my 990x on my Rampage iii formula.

Its a small matter really, but when i enter the voltage i want the CPU to run , my system "overrides it" and CPU-Z always shows it as 1.36v

So i can type in 29 multiplier . 31 .... and 33 and all of those will show a 1.36 voltage in cpu-z , even when i enter say a spesific number in Vcore voltage like say 1,32.

I dont wanna mess around to much since am not that experienced.

But is it the LLC thats messing around and overriding my voltage commands?

At default settings my Core Voltage varies due to speedstep i guess.
But as soons as i enter a set multiplier, lets say 29, istead of my normal max at 27. Vcore stays at a permanent 1.36

Anyone got any tips?

If you are setting a manual voltage the CPU will receive this voltage constantly. If you enter one value and save... and a higher value shows up in CPUz it is probably due to LLC or over current settings etc.
