    Hi Menthol,

    Cool, thanks for the info... I was actually looking at OpenGL, not OpenCL, based on the way you spelled it above, hehe.

    I'm a little nervous about trying it because right now there's an issue with the opencl.dll between Nvidia and Microsoft. If you are using the latest NVidia drivers (I'm on 359.06) and you run sfc /scannow, you'll get an error regarding opencl.dll, apparently because NVidia installs it's own version now and Microsoft is still expecting to see their own version, so it kicks up errors. I think I'll wait until that issue gets resolved before trying that.

    Anyway, I tried out all the other tweaks, and with my old 4.5Ghz 3.8Ghz cache OC. I booted in diagnostic mode, turned off explorer, ran it in 800x600, the works. It did significantly improve my image editing score:

    Still think I'm missing something, seeing as the difference between me running it at my 4.4Ghz 3.0Ghz cache OC and running it at 4.5Ghz 3.8Ghz cache was only approx. 3000 points. So not sure how folks are still scoring 20000 more than me in that benchmark. But at least the difference is just significant now, as opposed to wtf-my-system-is-completely-broken level difference.

    I was kind of surprised yours was so low as we have very similar setups bar the GPU's but I'm running my ram at 3000Mhz.

    My results are at 1920x1080 with no additional drivers or any attempt to shut down background programs, which I had quite a few running.

    My best score was using the OC panel and the software to connect my laptop, I was using single stage cooling at the time, the highest overclock I could pass encoding and heavy multitasking was 4.8 ghz but could pass image editing at 5.0 so I set my overclock to 5.0 used the freeze function as soon as the image editing score showed then used my laptop to bring the overclock down to 4.8 and completed the run
    There that's all my secrets, it took many attempts to accomplish and can only be done on an ASUS board as far as I know. Win 8.1 is very good for RealBench, and video drivers yes you may have to try numerous versions

    Question: Is 1.89v input voltage considered solidly in the safe zone for 24/7 use? If so, what would be the maximum safe for 24/7?

    I'll have another interesting OC story to tell in a few, I think.

    As a bit of a precursor to the story to come, checking out this thread:

    http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1834657

    Based on what people are reporting there, my 4.4 numbers (2 hour OCCT stable at max 1.26v) are actually pretty great. 4.4 at 1.275 was described in this thread as a "very good result", and in fact it's the best result listed in that thread except for the last one which is insane (4.875 at 1.3v).

    Oh, all right. Here's my story so far. I realized that I got my stability with my 4.4Ghz clock by setting input voltage to 1.89v, not that 0.005 vcore I added. I don't even remember setting it to that, but I must have at some point. Input voltage was always on auto previously, including every attempt I ever made with my 4.5Ghz stats. I tried running my 4.4Ghz OC with input voltage at Auto and OCCT crashed in 53 minutes. Set it back to 1.89v input, and it's currently still running 1h 24 minutes in.

    So, I'm going to experiment a bit now. Leaving vccin at 1.89v, I'm going to try running OCCT with the 4.5Ghz numbers again, maybe even dropping vcore a little, and see what happens. I'll report back.

    So anyway, that's why I'm asking what is generally considered the maximum safe 24/7 input voltage is. I'm sort of getting that 1.9v is the top "safe" input voltage, but I don't know if that's max safe for 24/7 or safe for any duration.

    EDIT: Ugh, not going well. Upping input voltage didn't make 4.5Ghz any more stable. Worse, the 4.4Ghz run caused a reboot (unfortunately I wasn't watching) sometime just before the 2 hour mark. Upped the bios vcore to 1.24v, appears to be actually going to 1.28v during OCCT, and trying again, this time for 2.5 hours.

    EDIT 2: Okay, this is somewhat unexpected. What would explain upping vcore actually reducing max temp? Is it possible that being slightly undervolted for the frequency you're running at can cause temperature spikes? So far my highest temp is 69c as opposed to the normal 72c.

    Ok, looks like setting max adaptive 1.24v for the vcore (can spike up to 1.28v during stress testing, but spends 99% of the time at 1.264v), 3.0 cache and 1.89v input voltage can get through 2.5 hours of OCCT while simultaneously running HWInfo64 and browsing the web. So really only had to up vcore another 0.005v to get it super stable. And now that I've established that even raising input voltage isn't going to get 4.5Ghz OCCT stable, I'm going to stop OC'ing and be happy with this.

    And yeah, temps never spiked over 71c. That's 2 degrees cooler than I got when I ran it with 0.005v less. Slightly less stability can increase temps I guess? Weird.

    Im planning to overclock the CPU only and not touch to ram atm, so i should disable XMP?

    It's a matter of personal preference.

    For anyone who's been following along and is interested, I just found a nice little surprise: I was able to set my input voltage from 1.890 back to Auto (which then maxes out at 1.856v in stress testing) by replacing it with the following settings:

    CPU Spectrum Spread: Enabled
    VRM Spectrum Spread: Enabled
    CPU SVID: Disabled

    I realized these had a considerable effect on stability when I tried them out on my 4.5Ghz OC and it lasted in OCCT for over 20 minutes when otherwise I could never get past 12 minutes regardless of my voltage settings. So I applied them to my 4.4Ghz OC and set my vccin to Auto, and boom, passed 2.5 hours of OCCT with no issues (max temp 73c). Now going to try dropping my vcore a little and see if it still holds up. I wish more (or any) guides out there would mention these settings.

    Note: I don't know if all 3 of those settings are actually improving stability, or just one of them, but in my research I couldn't find any reason to not set them the way they are, so not going to bother testing to find out if any of the 3 aren't really necessary,
