    Nice guide, thanks kindly.

    However, if you wish to make adjustments to the CPU Cache Voltage, we recommend using Manual or Offset Modes, as the Adaptive Voltage for Uncore does not work correctly for overclocking. This issue exists within the Intel microcode.
    Out of curiosity, has anyone tested the newer microcodes to see if Intel has fixed Adaptive cache? I think they fairly recently came out with microcode version 38, but even the guys at win-raid haven't produced a modded BIOS with it yet, I don't think.

    http://www.win-raid.com/t1893f44-RE-....html#msg28147

    EDIT: I tried actually finding this microcode 38, and couldn't do it. But then I tried finding 36, which has been out for a while, and I can't find that either!

    You have to own one to overclock it Arne. Vicarious users and armchair theorists need not apply

    Arne, I believe the word you are looking for is "burn!".

    Are you able to get through handbrake with that? Voltage? Nice OC regardless!

    @Raja
    Thank you, this helped a lot ^^

    @Arne
    I think they run better at everyday use ^^
    A 6950X @4.0-4.2 runs like a champ and feels smoother than my 5960x´s @ 4.5 and @ 4.6 in games and so on.
    You got a really good 5960x, upgrading to 6900K that is the upgrade for 5960x might be a gamble on speed,
    but I think even if you reach only 4.7-4.9 it will still feel like it is smoother on everyday use.
    Redstone update this summer from Microsoft will have support to better use differently tuned cores too,
    and there is no restriction on what speed the different cores run at on a 6xxx like previous generations

    Edit: Balanced power inside Windows behave almost like High Performance power on my 6950X.
    I think Intel focused on increasing general efficiency of CPU on Broadwell^^

    Feel free to wait for next gen, but you are missing out.
