  1. If your at 1.1V for 4GHz that's as good as I can get. Remember I was hoping for 5GHz lol so wonder if I also lost the lottery. This will be my last post on this forum, was supposed to be yesterday but a couple of loose ends to tie up. Been nice chatting to you and hope it all works out well.
  2. In that one you can check that P_State_Limits isn't limiting your ratio but a lot of the settings you want are int the SDM mostly under the MSR section such as MSR 0x198, 0x199, 0x1A0. Limits may or may not exist in both MSR and MMIO so you would need to check especially as some might not be documented.
  3. Notebookcheck is good for someone looking for a laptop and what to expect out of the box while HWBOT is more about maximum achievable performance. Intel gifted their Haswell mobile quads and their top Haswell mobile dual core with the ability not to only run a limited bin overclock but also the ability to fully unlock ratio's so they can run as high as power, cooling and stability permits and a Haswell at it's real limit draws a lot of power. Example
  4. This. The specification is the brand string read directly from the CPU while the other is a LUT in CPU-Z software. @ScubaSteve404 Try HWiNFO to see if any different.

  6. Sorry @skycat2216 I have no experience with v2 and can only comment on my findings with v3. Haswell is perhaps a special case.
  7. Runs at a fixed 1600Mz which is tied to BCLK so while you cannot adjust ratio's AFAIK you can use the 125MHz strap for 2000MHz.
  8. @Christiaan21-03 Problem is percentages can be so ambiguous. My old 1080 could hit over 200% for instance. GPU-Z has a bug when it calculates my 1050Ti power in Watts from percentages but then Nvidia have admitted the 1050Ti readings are crap so the newer drivers no longer report power for them.
  9. Like I said, that's userbench for you. I don't have a ST CBR15 score to hand but have an MT one of 896 cb. Considering MP ratio will usually be under 5 for same clocks then at least 180cb for ST, probably more. We can take SuperPi from HWBOT, a well known single thread bench and compare how many seconds each takes to complete. Size 8265U 4700MQ 1M 9.636 7.846 4700mq 23% Faster 32M 572.638 433.774 4700mq 32% Faster For multi threaded we can use the well known wPrime bench with sizes of 32M and 1024M and again compare how many seconds each takes to complete. Size 8265U 4700MQ 32M 6.064 5.131 4700mq 18% Faster 1024M 271.675 163.316 4700mq 66% Faster 66% with 1024M! Does the performance of the 8265U drop off that much on benches that last a fair bit more than 30 seconds? Maybe someone can double check. Now if you want to run efficiently with crippled performance then the 8265U would win of course. For some though it's about maximum performance and you cannot get that being efficient unfortunately.
  10. If it's done like that then it's not done properly ;)
  11. I agree. Should be on Corsair to fix under warranty.
  12. Seems to me you want to flash the ME region, by default it is locked. To unlock see if there is a BIOS option to upgrade ME, or a GPIO setting to unlock it or as a last resort shorting 2 pins on the audio chip, see here. You might find Intel FPT a little easier to use as you can easily specify just the ME region and not have to flash the BIOS region. This means you don't wipe your serial / MAC numbers but keep a backup just in case. I've not heard of RAM size affected by ME before but loss of overclocking can happen if corrupt.
  13. Be warned that it ca be addictive :) Nothing wrong with software overclocking if done properly.
  14. It means it's typically better to do the modifications before POST. For instance with the E5 v3 all core turbo the Asrock X99 Taichi hides some items such as the FIVR menu so we can unhide those. We can also add our own code, I have added a new menu "V3 - All Turbo" in my own BIOS This sub-section offers a choice of microcodes since people were claiming one microcode worked better than another. Microcodes are made available for CPUID's 306f2, 306f1 and 306f0. Some people were experiencing failure to POST with 306f1 when the microcode was removed so this modification would make the necessary changes for all core turbo AND apply the microcode afterward but before the troublesome module that the BIOS would usually halt on. Unfortunately after showing people how to run all cores on the Anandtech forum, in particular "The Stilt" prices of second hand v3 Xeon's became too much for my budget so never got to do any real testing except for my original 14 core E5-2683 v3. Might have shot myself in the foot with that one. Microcodes
  15. Meh, I said other than power draw. Do be aware though that 15W rating is for base clock which is 1.6GHz while the 4710 is for a base clock of 2.5GHz. I'm not a fan of userbench, only seems to publish average or mediocre results. For example here's a couple of results I found that were done a while back https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/224475 http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/613476 Perhaps some results from HWBOT would be better, especially those benches that last a lot longer than 30 Seconds. I think you'll find the 8265U gets beaten by a mobile CPU from over 5 years ago.
