  1. Is there any risk/additional wear when overclocking this high? I didn't touch the voltage because I want this card to last a bit longer and I don't want it to break because of this overclock.
  2. I'm currently overclocking my 970 without changing the voltage. I managed to increase my core clock by 170 MHz, after that my benchmark crashed. Then I started increasing the memory clock and right now I'm at +700 MHz and still no artifacts. Is something wrong or should I keep going? From what I've heard 970 can increase the memory clock by about 400 MHz.
  3. I have an i7-8700K and I want to undervolt it since I won't be doing anything that requires extra performance and lower temps are always nice (I will overclock it later). I initially undervolted it in Intel XTU using these settings: It was stable, but I had some problems with the software so I thought I will do the same thing in BIOS instead (I have MSI Z370 mobo), but after switching the core voltage mode to adaptive the only thing I could change was core voltage, not the offset (in the XTU core voltage mode is set to adaptive and the offset is set to -0.120V). I tried using the offset mode, but I got BSOD after a few minutes of normal use. What am I doing wrong?
  4. I have i7-8700K ang MSI Z370 Gaming PRO Carbon and I want to change the core voltage, but I can't find the offset mode option in BIOS. It's supposed to be above CPU Core Voltage. What am I doing wrong?
  5. Is there any news about which tasks will take the biggest hit? I've seen that it doesn't affect gaming, but that's not surprising since GPUs make the biggest difference there anyway. How about 3D rendering, video rendering etc?

    I7 8700k high temperature

    I also have i7 8700K and I also had similar temperatures, but a little bit lower. What helped me was undervolting the CPU. The lowest stable offset for me is -0.130V and it reduced the temps by 10C to 15C so you might give it a try.
  7. I have Noctua NH-D15s and because of the high radiators on my motherboard I mounted it so that the offset is on the bottom (but it's not touching the graphics card). Is the mounting mechanism symmetrical so I can leave it this way or does it need to be installed with the offset on the top?
  8. Never mind it actually works, it just applies it after 2-3 minutes from startup and I was checking too fast. Btw I don't think you can modify default profile.
  9. I can't find this voltage offset setting in BIOS. The voltage is set to auto and the other option is to set it manually. I have MSI Z370 mobo, do you know where can it be?
  10. I undervolted my CPU with intel extreme tuning utility and every time I reboot my settings are back to normal. When I open XTU the settings are automatically applied. I can't find any run on startup option in the program, am I missing something?

    i7-8700K high temps

    This is a screenshot of HWMonitor when running Aida running CPU + FPU + cache test.

    i7-8700K high temps

    I have two fans at the front and two at the top, I don't have any at the back because the IO cover is too big. When I took off the fan filters to improve to airflow and run benchmarks again temps stayed the same so I don't think it's an airflow issue. The ambient temp is 24C I also noticed something wierd in Aida64 - the grey line (CPU) is always lower than the cores are, you can see it especially when it idles. Here is a screenshot of Aida running CPU + FPU + cache test for 10 minutes. Is it normal?

    i7-8700K high temps

    It's not overclocked and I think the cooler is seated properly. I will post more info later. I've set the fan curve manually to max out at 70C.
  14. My i7-8700K is maxing out at 81C in blender bmw test. This seems a bit high, should I worry? I have noctua NH-D15S and MCE is off.
