    TBH I thought my cooling was pretty good - corsair hydro 150ipro.
    Now thinking of full water cooling but if i was going to do that, I think I'd maybe go for a z99 board and cpu etc lol

    I can’t really make a recommendation as I am not sure about what voltage mode you are using in your screenshots and what are your manual results, and adaptive goals. As said before, do all your stability testing in fixed manual voltage mode. Only then switch to adaptive. If you get higher vcore max than what you set as your adaptive voltage, you can use the vcore max - offset to achieve your desired maximum adaptive voltage. With properly configured adaptive voltage you should see vcore min around 0.8 to your preffered vcore max

    Hi Eclipt. I'm using adaptive mode @ 1.31v with cpu @5ghz. 8 hour stress test and all good.

    Left pic shows vcore @1.323v but it usually sits at 1.314v with light load / idle. Right hand pic is with xtu stress test running.

    Only other settings changed are the ones suggested by x-rated previously in this post

    Looks good This is a great overclock in my oppinion and can be just left alone. It’s all about whether you are into experimenting and fine tuning even more

    If you are really curious, you could try to set adaptive to 1.32 with an offset of -0.01 and see what results would come up. Either it would provide a consistent max 1.314v or screw things up

    Just out of curiosity, what is your LLC level at? I would personally try to experiment with raising the LLC just a little bit and lowering the set voltage. But this can also screw up stability, raise temps, etc.

    Lastly, did you try AVX stress testing now? My approach with AVX is that I try to find an AVX offset, which is stable at my set in voltage. Then, I would raise that AVX offset by 1 step and increase the set voltage to make it stable. If it’s not stable at 1.35, I go back to the previously stable AVX offset with my old voltage. I just know that going over 1.35 gets me into bad temp territory.

    Again, you got a good overclock dialed in. All the other things are really now.*

    Thank Eliot! Couldn't have done it with the help and advice from yourself, x-rated, rjbarker, arne and everyone else here!!

    I'll try doing the offset thing tonight after work cheers.

    My llc is set at 6 btw. Should I go up to 7 or 8 then?

    And noooooo - not tried avx testing with this setup lol. That gave me scary temps last time but I guess now the voltage is much lower it might not be so bad this time. How shouldI start playing with that? I'll do an avx test tonight on current settings before anything else.

    I, and probably other members on this forum, would most likely suggest you keep LLC below 7 But that does not mean you cannot experiment. If you are lucky, raising LLC from 6 to 7 might let you achieve a smaller load/non-load difference in voltage, lower your set voltage and keep the same temps. But, at the same time, it can just result in higher temps. It's all about trying it out I don't think you can damage anything with current CPU's. Unless if you run at 90-100 24/7

    Regarding AVX, sadly (or happily) new games are starting to use AVX. I have been trying the Anthem VIP demo and noticed my system BSOD, which was weird, as that never happened. Then I noticed that my CPU clock is operating according to my -200mhz AVX offset, which made it clear that the game uses AVX instructions. In my case I just raised the voltage by 0.02 to 1.33v and all was working fine. Higher AVX clock speed just means bad temp territory for me

    In all honesty, all of my stress testing was really just 10 minutes of XTU stress and then a single couple hour XTU stress after everything was dialed in and saved to fully lock in non-AVX stability and then just play some Anthem to increase my voltage for AVX stability I just really see no point to torture my CPU. If I ever BSOD, I just raise my voltage by 0.01. By the way, Anthem open demo is this weekend. If you can play it without problems, I would say you're AVX stable

    Cheers for info. Tbh ,I think I'll just leave it as is for the time being. I'll maybe run p95 later just to see how it handles avx.

    And anthem looks nice!! Will have to check it out. Just been playing, or trying to, fallout 76 recently and I guess because I loved the previous releases so much, I'mjust not ready to give up on it yet lol.

    ^^^^ By all means take your OC'ing to "Gaming"...to test further....P95 is actually pretty boring

    lol think i will mate! Just ran p95 to test avx and my cpu temp hit 100c in secs but I've configured corsair link to shut pc down if temps exceed 95c lol. So p95 test is out for me

    Atm everything works nice and smooth so I'll leave as is

    Absolutely....a few of the other stress tests and game on....if you never have a Crash to Desktop...BSOD or Freeze while gaming...temps are good....your done
