Would you consider this stable ?

Hey

 

I wanted to overclock my 1 year old PC so I rebuilt it with a new case a couple of months ago so I could add more cooling.

I am running 12x 120mm fans where 6 of those fans are mounted on my 360mm aio cooler for a push+pull config. 

I have been reading a lot on overclocking but I am still a newbie when it comes to overclocking.

 

My spec: I5 8600K, GTX1080, Z370-H, 16GB 3200mhz, 970EVO 250GB, 2TB HDD, HX850i

 

With the current spec I have run tests on Cinebench R20 + Prime95 + Asus Realbench (only short tests for 30min so far).

Temps are at 70-80C while stresstesting.

Also did some tests in Time Spy and Fire Strike for good measure.

 

XMP enabled

BCLK: 100

Multicore: disabled

AVX Neg offset: 2

Sync All Cores + Ratio 49

CPU SVID: Disabled

CPU load-line calibration: 5 (of 1-7) 

Long + Short Power limits: max

CPU core/cache limit: max

Manual CPU voltage: 1,360V

 

I wanted to go for 5,0ghz but I could not get it stable unless i exceeded 1,4V and that is to high for me.

 

So...

Would you consider this stable ?

run blender bmw, and classroom, if it passes those it's probably stable enough for regular use

It's only stable until it isn't. Other than running hours upon hours of stress tests there's no way to significantly test stability for sure, excepy using it how you would and seeing if it crashes. 

 

Without you running AIDA64 & prime95 stress tests at all I can't say I'd call it "stable" myself.

Just make sure if it's an Asus board that CPU current capability is maxed out. It would be under external digi + power control. Also think about delidding your CPU. It makes a massive differance. Also if you change your current capability then you can more than likely lower your voltage and push your oc higher.

In the External Digi + Power Control menu i set only the LLC to 5 (of 1-7). Is there any thing else i should change here ?

In the Internal CPU Power Managment menu i have set Long/Short package power limit to the max.

A small question about delidding...

 

I have been thinking about delidding but I was under the assumption that delidding your CPU only helps with lowering the temp of your CPU under heavy load.

Are there other advantages ? 

Could I possibly get a higher OC without raising the Vcore ?

Look for current capability it will be a percentage. Max it out.

It lowers the temp all the time. With a lower temp you waste less power (it's a thermal dynamic thing).
