Hi my name is Omar nice to meet you, this is my first post in the forum. I have always wanted to make an overclock to a processor. And finally I was able to achieved one of the things that I have always wanted. The question is If I made it correctly or not? I don't want to fry my processor
in the next months jejeje, for that reason I would like to know your opinion about my setup.

HARDWARE SPECS

  • Processor : Intel Core i7 10700K
  • Graphic Card : EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER XC 8GB
  • Thermal Paste : Artic Silver 5
  • RAM Memory : 32 GB (4 X 8) G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4, 3600MHz with XMP II enabled
  • Motherboard : ASUS ROG Strix Z490-E
  • Liquid Cooler : NZXT Kraken X73 360mm
  • PSU: ASUS ROG-THOR-850P P
  • SDD: 1TB SAMSUNG EVO 970 Plus
  • HDD: 4TB Seagate Barracuda ST4000LM024
  • SO : Windows 10 Home Premiun 64 bits

MANUAL VCORE SETUP

  • CPU Core/Cache Current Limit Max : MAX VALUE (275.75)
  • Long Duration Package Power Limit : MAX VALUE (4095)
  • Ai Overclock Tunner : XMP II
  • Asus Multi Core Enhacement : Enabled
  • AVX Instruction Core Ratio : 0
  • CPU Core Ratio : Sync All cores
  • ALL-Core Ratio Limit : 50
  • CPU Core/Cache Voltage : Manual Mode
  • CPU Core Voltage Override : 1.37
  • Min CPU Cache Ratio : 45
  • Max CPU Cache Ratio : 45
  • CPU Load-Line Calibration : LEVEL 04

  • VCORE Idle : 1.34v
  • VCORE Stress : 1.288 - 1.3005 (Prime 95)

ADAPTATIVE VOLTAGE SETUP

  • CPU Core/Cache Current Limit Max : MAX VALUE (275.75)
  • Long Duration Package Power Limit : MAX VALUE (4095)
  • Ai Overclock Tunner : XMP II
  • Asus Multi Core Enhacement : Enabled
  • AVX Instruction Core Ratio : 0
  • CPU Core Ratio : Sync All cores
  • ALL-Core Ratio Limit : 50
  • CPU Core/Cache Voltage : Manual Mode
  • CPU Core Voltage Override : 1.38
  • Min CPU Cache Ratio : 45
  • Max CPU Cache Ratio : 45
  • CPU Load-Line Calibration : LEVEL 05
  • IA AC Load Line : 0.01
  • IA DC Load Line : 0.01

  • VCORE Idle : 1.30v
  • VCORE Stress : 1.279 - 1.31 (Prime 95)


With both setups I can get 5.0 GHZ stable, with more frequency the system becomes inestable and start giving me BSOD's in Windows, the question here is, which setup do you recommend for a long term 24/7 setup, the first one or the second one?

Hey, that's a really nice setup!!

Well I don't like the v-droop on the adaptive overclock personally.

So my pick is the manual OC, the performance difference however is probably within 1%.....so
Check these settings.
Vccio - 1.2v or less
Vccia - 1.2v or less

For the blue screens, bump the v-core some more. These chips start getting thirsty past 5ghz.

Additional comment:

upgrade the thermal paste to MX-4
Can also bump the Cache up, but will cost more v-core. 4.7 - 4.9ghz area 'ish

Thanks for your answer ShrimpBrim, I will check the settings for Vccio and Vccia, I will try to see if I can get more than 5 GHZ. VCCIA I could not find it in my BIOS testing the new setup

I meant System Agent. I'm sorry.
Sometime's the Asus boards really like to over volt too much.
So you want to manually set them for sure.

Thanks again, I noticed now more stability in my setup with: 1.18 for Vccio and 1.2 for System Agent, I will continue making some more tests

Once you have the cpu overclock settled in, maybe push the memory a little more. Incremental steps, and a bump in voltage. 1.45v would be max without a fan right on the memory.
